REview – In The Shadow Of The Moon (2019)

Disappointed by Terminator: Dark Fate (apparently if the box office’s any indicator you wouldn’t be the only one) and have a Netflix subscription? Check out In The Shadow Of The Moon, Jim Mickle’s, thematically speaking, Terminator-like sci-fi movie because it’s really good. I could go into the plot–but I won’t because it’s integral to the […]

REview- Shadow (2018)

Yimou Zhang’s Shadow is a remarkable bit of filmmaking. The movie revolves around two kingdoms on the precipice of war, and the political intrigues that come about. That doesn’t sound like much, but as executed by Zhang, it’s pretty remarkable stuff. And did I mention the entire movie is rendered in shades of white, black […]

REview – The Pool (2018)
