Black Panther – Review

In the massive, film-ending battle at the climax of Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya rides an armor-plated rhinoceros into a melee, but he does so with gravity, purpose, and no degree of self-consciousness. In many ways, the image is emblematic of the balance that Coogler is able to achieve in his film, which is one... Read More | Share it now!

12 Days of Crap-Mas: Ernest Saves Christmas

Trevor: I’m glad you recommended an Ernest movie for this column (especially one with the words “Saves Christmas” in the title). I had never seen an Ernest movie, and probably never would have, so I’m glad I did, because now I know: I do not like Ernest movies. I found Ernest Saves Christmas unbearable when it wasn’t boring, overly reliant... Read More | Share it now!

12 Days of Crap-Mas: A Christmas Prince

Of course Margaux and I had to watch A Christmas Prince.  Trevor: I feel like for a while now the Internet has been abuzz talking about A Christmas Prince. I know I personally have seen words like “bonkers” used to describe it, so I might have gone into this with sky-high expectations, which is what soured the Pottersville experience. A...

12 Days of Crap-Mas: Black Christmas (2006)

Margaux and I take a look at the truly crazy remake of 1974’s Black Christmas. Trevor: Black Christmas is a crazy-ass movie in a lot of ways, not the least of which is its bright yellow killer, which is presented in a matter-of-fact fashion, then immediately glossed over. Which is only one of the weird decisions this movie makes. I didn’t... Read More | Share it now!

12 Days of Crap-Mas: Pottersville

Margaux and I continue to trudge through the holidays with the disappointing Pottersville.  Trevor: So the elevator pitch for Pottersville is basically “Michael Shannon, a two-time Oscar nominee and one of the most intense actors alive, plays a mild-mannered shopkeeper who discovers that his wife and the sheriff are secret furries, so he dresses...

12 Days of Crap-Mas: Surviving Christmas

Margaux and I continue to ring in the holidays with the surprisingly funny Surviving Christmas.  Trevor: Okay, let’s get this out of the way: we both kind of liked Surviving Christmas. It’s not some hidden gem, but it was weirdly, surprisingly enjoyable at times. I’m not gonna lie, after the rough start, there were some parts of this movie... Read More | Share it now!
