Review: Mary Poppins Returns

Review: Anna and the Apocalypse

I don't think I will ever be able to explain how Anna and the Apocalypse exists. Someone had to have woken up one day and decided "Gee, you know what the world needs? A musical about the zombie apocalypse set during Christmas!" Just by...

Review: A Star is Born

Review: Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

The original Mamma Mia, based off the theatrical musical of the same name, was an absolute blast. Cram packed full of stars, fantastic numbers, clever direction, and clever winks at the genre the movie worked just as well as the musical did...

Review: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright is a director with a specific vision, and it's led him to make some of the most genre-bending films in the past decade, and some of the funniest. It's also led him to leave Ant-Man. How do you bounce back from someone not letti...

Pitch Perfect 3 has picture perfect poster: Last Call Pitches

Pitch Perfect has been an unexpectedly enjoyable franchise. It's irreverent, yet stays on point, and by and large does a wonderful job of staying in the realm of comedy while still having a story (as non-earth shattering as it may be). It's...

Review: Jem and the Holograms

I have memories of the 80s cartoon Jem and the Holograms. They aren't fond and they aren't bad, they just are. A movie based on the show didn't really get me excited in that way that most nostalgia does, but I could see how it could be done...
