Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (R)

Moviegoers of 2019 have become familiar with the phrase “Part of the journey is the end” through that really popular superhero movie you may have seen. Something similar to that now-famous truism presents itself through the latest Ted Bundy film. In the case of the Bundy film, the lesson learned is that… Read Review

Pokémon Detective Pikachu (PG)

In my review for 2019’s criminally underrated The Kid Who Would Be King (still not a fan of that title), I lamented the dearth of classic family adventures like the ones Joe Johnston was so good at directing during the 1990s.

Considered as a piece within the Conjuring universe, however, the… Read Review
