Movie Review – Slums of Beverly Hills

Director: Tamara Jenkins Starring: Natasha Lyonne, Alan Arkin, Marisa Tomei Year: 1998 Like any Tamara Jenkins movie, and there have only been a few (The Savages, Private Life), Slums of Beverly Hills is a film you have to sink down into, almost sink down to its level, to possibly understand what dirty little secrets it’s

Movie Review – The Lodge

Director: Severin Fiala, Veronica Franz Starring: Riley Keough, Jaede Martell, Lia McHugh, Richard Armitage Year: 2019 I hate religion more than your average person, but even I was dissatisfied with the way that faith was twisted in this film, or perhaps, more specifically, how the cult horror genre and real life cult history were manipulated

Movie Review – The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Director: Louis Leterrier Starring: Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel Year: 2019 While Age of Resistance is technically a Netflix original television series, I view it more as a limited series; ten hour-long episodes, one epic tale, story over.  It remains to be seen whether we’ll get more from this universe, but for now I’m
