Rating: R Stars: Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Steven Yeun, Michael Wincott, Keith David, Terry Notary Writer: Jordan Peele Director: Jordan Peele Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: July 22, 2022 NOPE has a title and trailer that suggests it’s going to be about people reacting with unexpected common sense to horror movie tropes. That’s not what NOPE turns out to be. This in itself isn’t a demerit; no movie should be judged by how it does or doesn’t adhere to its advertising, which is often created separate from the filmmakers.

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU movie poster | ©2018 Annapurna Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Kate Berlant, Michael X. Sommers, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer, Forest Whitaker Writer: Boots Riley Director: Boots Riley Distributor: Annapurna Pictures Release Date: June 6, 2018 SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is agitprop comedy cinema at its most pointed. Director/writer Boots Riley has devised a wicked social satire that takes on race, economics, the corporate state and more. It’s often simultaneously funny and depressing in how close its outrageousness is to reality. Even when the third act takes a turn into sci-fi, the metaphors are grounded. Our […]Read On »

Read at your own risk. So we learned some interesting things about Rick and company when they are thrust into a pseudo-society on THE WALKING DEAD, they turn a bit creepy, apathetic and paranoid. In “Forget,” I’ll be honest, not a heck of a lot happened in terms of advancing […]Read On »

Read at your own risk. THE WALKING DEAD continued to recoil from a handful of mediocre episodes with back-to-back entertaining episodes that have introduced the audience not only to a handful of new characters but an entirely new and different area for the survivors to call home. In “Remember,” Alexandria is everything that […]Read On »

I truly enjoy THE WALKING DEAD but sometimes they outthink themselves. Take “What Happened and What’s Going On?” for instance.

THE WALKING DEAD, in four seasons, has provided a lush, rich zombie apocalypse – the closest we’ve ever had to a TV series capturing the complexities and nuances of the best of zombie feature films, most notably the cannon of […]Read On »
