The Happytime Murders

I have a motto that everyone should heed, and I believe that saying is “Don’t be a d*ck.” “The Happytime Murders” is a mean-spirited, ugly, cliche-filled, lazy, and lousy comedy that thinks just because a puppet smokes, drops F-bombs, and… Read More ›

The Equalizer 2

Certain non-Marvel action movies give us ambitious sequels, whether they’re good, great, mediocre, or bad. Some like “London Has Fallen” or “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” ruin the enjoyment of the first, while others like “Deadpool 2” or “John Wick: Chapter… Read More ›

The First Purge

As much as the last “Purge” movie (“Election Year”) sucked, we all know how it ends. The annual event, in which all crime, including murder, is legal, has come to an end, and it should have ceased in becoming a… Read More ›

Gringo

After watching annoying performances from an A-list cast in “A Wrinkle in Time,” I’ve found some much better performances in “Gringo,” a comedy with drug cartels, pharmaceutical companies, and a down-on-his-luck businessman caught between them. That concept could work if… Read More ›

Death Wish
