‘BlacKKKlansman’ Film Review

Spike Lee's pent up anger uses BlacKKKlansman to show he is not an auteur to be messed with. Similarly to his last film Chi-Raq, we can see the essence of anger and rage frivolously boil in this film. Lacking in the suspense department, the comedy and the seamless blunt approach to every interaction shines greatly ...

I have one rule when it comes to cinema. It’s that all movies deserve a chance. No movie should be judged solely based on the reviews from professional critics.

Alien: Covenant Review

1979’s Alien is a cinematic masterpiece.  It’s 1986 sequel Aliens is one of the greatest action films ever produced.  Alien 3 is probably one of the worst sci-fi films ever made and Alien: Resurrection is a film that should have never been made.  So, what do you do when the sequel train stops working?  Produce ...
