‘Green Book’ Film Review

When you hear the name Peter Farrelly, images of quirky comedies like Dumb and Dumber or There’s Something About Mary come to mind.  However, this year Farrelly took a turn for the better with Green Book (2018), a film based off of the true story of the friendship of Frank Anthony Vallelonga, otherwise known as ...

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Film Review

Bohemian Rhapsody manages to be a fun celebration of Queen and Freddie Mercury’s life, one which is entirely superficial, for they were playing it safe rather than trying to be as bold or brazen as its larger-than-life subject.

‘Halloween (2018)’ Film Review

For years, the Halloween franchise has been regarded as a broken home. While John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic is still hailed as being a milestone feature for the horror genre, its subsequent sequels, helmed by various others, soured the franchise to the point where it looked as if it was put down for good. Out ...
