Spoil-Free Review: Free Fire

Spoil-Free Review: Free Fire

The new movie by Ben Wheatley, Free Fire, is a shit load of fun. Violent, funny, dry all the things a growing boy needs.

Spoil-Free Review: Morris From America

Spoil-Free Review: Morris From America

Morris From America is a lot of things that you’ve seen before: a coming of age story, a fish out of water tale, a love story, and a father-son story.  Even though Chad Hartigan’s 2016 indie comedy is a lot of things you’ve seen before it still manages to be a unique combination of a […]

Spoil-Free Review: The Nice Guys

Spoil-Free Review: The Nice Guys

It is rare in 2016 that a comedy is really worth seeing in theaters.  In the modern studio system the comedy is one of two things, it’s a Judd Apatow-esque romantic comedy complete with loathsome characters and clique story lines.  Or it’s a raunchy adult comedy designed to appeal to the most strangely coveted demographic […]

Spoil-Free Reviews: The Force Awakens

Spoil-Free Reviews: The Force Awakens

I finally saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens; I waited to see it with my family because I can’t say I really care about Star Wars and there was just other movies I’d rather spend my $10 on.  And during holiday time, the family pays for tickets.  If you’re reading this, it’s basically a 90% […]

Spoil-Free Reviews: The Hateful Eight

Spoil-Free Reviews: The Hateful Eight

So I settled down in AFI Silver’s almost too hard and too authentic 1920’s era movie house seats.  Some bald guy named Todd or Jeff or something like that steps out to the podium on the stage to tell everyone about the bar that will be open during intermission.  And I being to prepare myself […]

Spoil-Free Reviews: Mad Max: Fury Road

Spoil-Free Reviews: Mad Max: Fury Road

Well it only seems right that I make my triumphant return with the equally triumphant return of an equally iconic pop culture icon.  When I heard George Miller was bringing back the Mad Max series with a modern reboot it garnered much the same response the announcements of Jurassic World and Star Wars Force Awakens […]

Spoil-Free Reviews: The Imitation Game

Spoil-Free Reviews: The Imitation Game

So it has finally arrived.  Benedict Cumberbatch’s Oscar bait film of the year The Imitation Game has made its slow ass way to DC.  I have finally seen it and I will tell you how good it really was.  Admittedly I am a little biased when it comes to this movie, I’m obsessed with everything […]

Spoil-Free Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Spoil-Free Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

“Well that shit just happened”. Basically those were my thoughts leaving Guardians of Galaxy. I expected greatness when I went to go see Marvel’s newest monster hit, if I hadn’t I wouldn’t have seen it at 9:45 on a Thursday in Imax 3D. But there was no part of me, not even the most optimistic […]

Spoil-Free Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Spoil-Free Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

I’ve always had a hard time getting really into movies where you know the outcome. Like watching Soylent Green after 1992 (a whole year before my birth and a decade and a half before I actually saw the film). Like being the guy who waited more than a week to see The Village. Or like […]

Spoil-Free Review: Snowpiercer

Spoil-Free Review: Snowpiercer

So I finally saw Snowpiercer, a week after its limited US release date and a year after its Korean release.  You can blame this bullshit on the Weinstein Company’s attempt to cut 20 minutes of the film (having seen this movie I’m not exactly sure what 20 minutes they tried to remove but I’ve been […]
