Latest Reviews

MOVIES

Dragon Ball Super: Broly

A very funny, very thrilling and even occasionally moving effort that gives the long-time fans more of what they love, and a sufficient entry point for newcomers to get in on the fun.

Cain Noble-Davies, FILMINK (Australia)

Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda

a moving and marvelous look at an artist and his inspirations through decades

Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

Fyre

On some level, the reason Hulu...were able to get the drop on Netflix...is because they seem to have a better understanding of how and why the Fyre Festival could happen.

Marisa Carpico, The Pop Break

DVD/STREAMING

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero

This was the war to end all wars and those who fought in it paid a terrible price. With Sgt Stubby: An American Hero the filmmakers have managed to portray that price, while still making the film palatable and appropriate for children

Rachel Wagner, Rotoscopers

Panique (Panic)

With this dynamic and balanced restoration, Criterion makes a significant case for Panique as one of the most moving and beautiful of unjustly neglected noirs.

Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

Zombies

Disney Channel has made a name for itself in providing teen-friendly musicals with positive messages and energetic songs. The latest entry, Zombies, is one of the better entries with a sweet message, charismatic performances and some catchy songs
