    I wasn't expecting much out of the new Child's Play remake, so I was surprised when it turned out to be not half bad. Chucky, the killer doll returns, this time voiced by Mark...

  • Film Review: <em>Toy Story 4</em>

    Film Review: Toy Story 4

    Out of all of Pixar's computer animated Toy Story movies, the second one is my personal favorite. I think it is brilliant, and even tops the first one, which, itself, is pure joy....

    Film Review: Rocketman

    It might seem like the Elton John biopic Rocketman is an extension of last year's craze of music films (Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star Is Born), but it has a different feel than those...

  • Film Review: <em>Brightburn</em>

    Film Review: Brightburn

    Brightburn is essentially evil Superman. In fact, I am willing to bet that cousins and screenwriting team Brian and Mark Gunn attended a film retrospective of director Richard...

  • Film Review: <em>Aladdin</em>

    Film Review: Aladdin

    The Disney live-action remake train keeps rolling with director Guy Ritchie's Aladdin. It's by no means an insult to the original, but it also fails to do much to justify...
