Star Trek Beyond Review: Space Sadness

A thoroughly disappointing enterprise

Meh Space: the final frontier. An infinite vacuum of darkness wherein a film series can come out strong and full of promise but then eventually devolves into a by-the-numbers affair that repeatedly follows the same...

Free State of Jones Review: Civil Bore

Meh There’s just something about war movies that draw us in as audiences. Oh sure, there’s the history and the shaping of nations and all that, but there’s also much to be said for the stark realism of a well...
