Movie Reviews

Dan Webster and Nathan Weinbender give short movie reviews.

"Three Identical Strangers" is a tale of joy and of pain, Dan Webster says in his movie review.  

"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," the fifth film in the prehistoric franchise, has already made $1 billion at the international box office and will no doubt inspire more sequels. But is it any good? Nathan Weinbender takes a look at the dino-film blockbuster and finds something of a guilty pleasure.

It received rave reviews at film festivals, it inspired a hyperbolic ad campain, and now it's dividing audiences. Hereditary is a horror film about a family that's already troubled before it's menaced by supernatural visitors, and Nathan Weinbender takes a look to see if it's deserving of all the hype.

There are more prestigious films in theaters right now, but few that are as fun. Upgrade is a hyper-violent sci-fi revenge film about a paralyzed man who becomes a killing machine, and Nathan Weinbender says it's solid entertainment for those who like their drive-in fare extra ridiculous.

According to Dan Webster, the characters in Richard Linklater's "Last Flag Flying" feel a little too actorly.

Nathan Weinbender takes a look at the new blockbuster, which he proclaims to be overstuffed and quite long, and actually, pretty fun!

Dan Webster says that The Rachel Divide certainly lives up to its title!

Borg vs McEnroe explores the pathology behind championship tennis.

Isle of Dogs is an animated gem from Wes Anderson according to Dan's review.

The big winner at the box office last week was a mostly silent affair. A Quiet Place, directed by and starring John Krasinski, is about monsters that kill you if you make noise, and the film follows suit. It's also, Nathan Weinbender says, an effective exercise in mounting tension.
