  • Review: Lightyear by Daniel W. Rasmus - Lightyear is not the movie that inspired Andy to Want a Buzz Lightyear Toy Much to Disney and Pixar’s protestations, I do not believe Lightyear is the movie that inspired Andy to ask, and his parents to buy, a Buzz Lightyear toy back… Continue Reading
  • Review: Elvis by Alyssa Rasmus - Elvis Presley is an American icon. Regardless of how you feel about The King, you know his name. You know his style through every costume shop's Halloween version. You know his music from its indelible presence in the American musical… Continue Reading
  • Jurassic World: Dominion. A Lot of Dinosaurs Chasing People by Daniel W. Rasmus - Jurassic World: Dominion was exactly what I expected and what I wanted it to be. A lot of people were chased by a lot of different dinosaurs. That there were also giant insects and a few synapsids, mosasaurs, and pterosaurs… Continue Reading
  • Review: Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness by Daniel W. Rasmus - Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness I place Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness squarely in the middle of Marvel’s MCU films. It is much better than Thor: The Dark World, but not as tight as The Avengers,… Continue Reading
  • Eternals Review: A lot to Think About by Daniel W. Rasmus - I had to think about the Eternals. A lot. First off, overall, I liked the film. I agree with many reviewers that the big-named stars in the film were underused, but an ensemble piece was never going to let Angela… Continue Reading
  • Jolt Review: How to Handle (or Not) Several Thousand Volts of Kate Beckinsale by Daniel W. Rasmus - If you like to see Kate Beckinsale kick ass, and feel somewhat ambivalent about it, then spend an afternoon or evening with Jolt. A hyped-up Beckinsale’s Lindy takes anger management to a whole new level with enabler Dr. Munchin (Stanley… Continue Reading
  • The Matrix Resurrections Review: A Circuitous Path Back to the Same Place by Daniel W. Rasmus - Everybody likes a resurrection story. Well, not everybody. Seems that fans and critics alike held very mixed feelings over the Lana Wachowski epic that brings audiences back into the matrix. And this time, they bring them in through a side… Continue Reading
  • Dune Review: Still Waiting by Daniel W. Rasmus - Dune is perhaps my favorite book. I have read Frank Herbert’s Dune at least 5 times. I have read all of Herbert’s Dune books and most of the new books from his son Brian and collaborator Kevin J. Andersen. I… Continue Reading
  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings starts the MCU reinvention by Daniel W. Rasmus - If you have seen Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings go.  Go now. Unless you have not been vaccinated. Then wait. Otherwise, get on a mask and go see a mask-less hero deliver shifts to the MCU more subtle… Continue Reading
  • Review: Cruella by Alyssa Rasmus - Where to begin with an origin story about a villain who wants to use puppies as a coat. Well, you probably need to break down a very traumatic childhood. Cruella is a punk-rock heist movie that works to construct and… Continue Reading
  • Wonder Woman 84 Review: Wonder Woman 84 not as wondrous as its predecessor by Daniel W. Rasmus - Well, #WonderWoman1984. Good thing it was free. Wanted to like it, but ultimately no emotional connection to any characters. Never felt jeopardy. The movie quite literally pulled its punches. As with all not so good films, poor writing undermined the… Continue Reading
  • Review: The Vast of Night. Not All Teenage Fear Derives from Being a Teenager. by Daniel W. Rasmus - Review: The Vast of Night. Two friends combine their curiosity and courage to figure out where the hell that sound is coming from. The sound is haunting. Two young people whose lives revolve around audio, one a radio operator, the… Continue Reading
  • The Parent Trap turns 22! by Alyssa Rasmus - Released 22 years ago today, July 20, The Parent Trap remains a beloved movie and a 1990's classic. This film has captured the hearts of romantic comedy fans for decades. The story is a special combination of the youthful vision… Continue Reading
  • Review: Palm Springs by Alyssa Rasmus - What happens when the vacation never ends? Palm Springs answers that exactly as two wedding guests get stuck in an endless time loop reliving the same day over and over again. Without an end in sight, the two begin a… Continue Reading
  • Review: Little Women by Alyssa Rasmus - Many American classic books have already become feature films. Little Women is one such novel that has many big-screen adaptations. Little Women from Greta Gerwig is the latest interpretation putting a 21st-century spin on this late 19th-century story. The film received a… Continue Reading
