Movie Reviews

Dan Webster and Nathan Weinbender give short movie reviews.

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.

The Russian film, Loveless takes an artistic look at the dark soul of Russia, according to Dan Webster, in his review.

More than two decades ago, we were introduced to Lara Croft, the pistol-packing adventurer in the video game "Tomb Raider." She's inspired movies before but now she's back in a gritty reboot, and played by Oscar winner Alicia Vikander. Nathan Weinbender takes a lookat the new game-turned-film, which he says, is about as much fun as watching someone else play Nintendo. 

Daniela Vega and some magical realism give life to the Chilean film "A Fantastic Woman," Dan Webster says in his review.
