'Road House' Movie Review: Better Than The Original

Road House movie 2024 with Jake Gyllenhaal and Conor McGregor image

Doug Limon's ROAD HOUSE shares a similar plot and main character's name from the 80's Patrick Swayze movie but other than that, the Jake Gyllenhaal-led film amps up the violence and humor in a very different and entertaining manner. UFC fighter Conor McGregor makes his feature film debut, and steals the show as a beast of an antagonist.

'Night Swim' Movie Review: Beware of The Pool Ghosts

Night Swim 2024 movie review

NIGHT SWIM, starring Wyatt Russell (Monarch: Legacy of Monsters) and Kerry Condon (Better Call Saul, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN, works better as a thriller than a horror film. The characters are riveting and interesting but the payoff is lacking as the story beats fall into the usual horror tropes.

'America's Family' Movie Review: Immigration Is Much More Than A Political Stunt

America's Family 2023 movie review

AMERICA'S FAMILY comes at the right time as the conversation around the deportation of undocumented immigrants is resumed with the GOP planning to take back the White House in 2024. Now streaming on many platforms, AMERICA'S DREAM puts faces to those affected by the political game. Produced by The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) through their CHIRLA Liberty Film division, the film plays like an educational film shown at school. Regardless, the movie is a gripping tale of a family torn apart by careless policies, told in a positive light.

'Killers of the Flower Moon' Movie Review: A Devastating Tale of Greed

Killers Of The Flower Moon Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro, Lily Gladstone | Courtesy of Apple TV

Based on the true story of the 1920s Osage Tribe Murders, Martin Scorsese's KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON depicts the story from the villain's point of view (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro) rather than from the victim's perspective. Scorsese delivers a cinematic juggernaut but the filmmaker's choices are somewhat baffling. The three-hour and 26-minute run time is felt but the intensity of the escalating events increases the tension.
