First Man (2018)

You’d think there wouldn’t be much of a story to tell here, right? Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past forty-nine years, you know that on July 20th 1969, Neil Armstrong made history by being the first man on the mo...

Venom (2018)

Space goo is brought back to Earth and it gets inside Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) a journalist investigating Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) an evil mega-rich douchebag. I have to say, I don’t have a lot of hate for this film. It’s got plen...

The Predator (2018)

On this trip to the moving picture house I was joined by my brother, Andrew. We both knew very little about The Meg, but figured it might be fun. Jason Statham and a big f’in shark, should be good for a laugh, right? Wrong! This w...

Christopher Robin (2018)

Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) is all grown up. He’s got a house in London, along with a wife and a daughter, and a stressful job, the usual trappings of modern life. Some of which he should be focusing on, and others he should...
