Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ takes viewers on wild emotional rollercoaster

October 16, 2019

This movie made me scared of my own reflection. Director Jordan Peele did it again with his second horror film as well as his second time in the director’s chair. “Us” follows a family trying to enjoy a nice relaxing vacation together.  When their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos by...

‘Lion King’ is fun but adds nothing to original

Oh my god is that a real lion? The live-action remake of the Lion King has top of the line animation, creating a second per second photorealistic world that looks almost better than reality. Is it really a live-action remake? It’s totally not live action — it's animated. The king himself...

Fair warning: You are going to cry, no “ifs,” “ands” or “buts” about it. Let me say right off the bat, “Toy Story 4” was an amazing movie. When producers first announced they were going to make a fourth “Toy Story,” I was skeptical. The last three films in the franchise were...

Oh, God why, why? I can’t stand it. Its cheeziness level is over 9,000. Make it stop. No, I mean, seriously, just stop. Men In Black is one of those movie franchises that milked their series dry. The whole point of MIB International was to revitalize the MIB movies with a new director,...

Do we really need a Bohemian Rhapsody remake playing in the CUB? That was my initial reaction to Rocketman’s trailer. Can you blame me? Both Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody feature a famous British singer who rose to fame around the same time period. Each deal with the rock n’ roll lifestyle...

Have you ever wondered what “Gone Girl” would have been if it had comedy? Lucky for you, you don’t need to, because the producers of “A Simple Favor” did it for you. Even more surprisingly, it’s actually not that bad. This last weekend, I decided to go with a friend to see “A Simple...
