Greenland

admin

By: Kevin Jordan Wanna get away? Greenland is the perfect movie for 2020. It includes needless violence; an idiotic treatment of science, government, and the military; and the end of the world. All I wanted was a big, dumb, loud, fun disaster movie to escape into for a couple of […]

Over the Moon

admin

By: Kevin Jordan It’s sort of a myth. After the very excellent Klaus last year, I was hoping for a good follow up from Netflix in Over the Moon. By the end of the film, I found myself explaining to my son what is a MacGuffin and why the plot’s […]

Soul & Godmothered

admin

Clear the mechanism. Note: Disney is releasing both Soul and Godmothered on top of each other, so I’m covering them both together with an assist from my eight-year old son. But first… When I play baseball, there are times when I am in such a great groove pitching that everything […]

Come Play

admin

By: Kevin Jordan There’s an app for everything. Parenting during the pandemic has been quite a challenge. All of the things that are important for children – attending school, being around other kids their age, spreading their time across multiple activities, not being around parents 24/7 – have been completely […]

Come Away

admin

By: Kevin Jordan A tale of two tales. Titles are one of the most important aspects of a film. In one, two, or a handful of words, a title has to tell us what the movie is about, be intriguing enough to convince us to spend money to watch the […]

The Doorman

admin

By: Kevin Jordan A poor man’s, poor man’s Die Hard. As we continue to go without any major movie releases (with the exception of Tenet and Mulan), there is still a small trickle of low-budget films being released to video on-demand (VOD). Typically, these movies tend to fall into the […]

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

admin

By: Kevin Jordan The second best Odyssey ever. My editor tasked us with reviewing the Coen Brothers’ films and, since I’d rather read Twilight novels than sit through almost their entire filmography, I volunteered to re-watch O Brother, Where Art Thou?, the one film of theirs worth watching more than […]

Antebellum

admin

By: Kevin Jordan It takes a village. As we continue to face and confront the reality that racism is still deeply ingrained in American society and culture, we continue to uncover more and more evidence that maybe the Civil War never really ended. Yes, slavery was technically outlawed as a […]

The Burnt Orange Heresy

admin

By: Kevin Jordan Can’t quite put my finger on it. I am sure you have heard this quote: “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach.” – George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman. Up until five minutes ago, I knew nothing about Shaw, nor that he was the scribe behind […]

Hamilton

admin

By: Kevin Jordan Hardcore history. Raise your hand if you know more about Alexander Hamilton than 1) his face is on the ten dollar bill, 2) he created the United States’ central banking system, and 3) was killed in a duel by Aaron Burr. If your hand is up, go […]
