Three Identical Strangers

Have you ever wondered if you had an identical twin? For Eddy Galland, David Kellman, and Robert Shafran, the question was answered. Twice over. Robert’s first day of college was a memorable one. Everywhere he went, he was warmly greeted. When someone calls him “Eddy,” he says, “My name is Robert.” To which the person […]

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Much like the characters on Lost, Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) must return to the island. The reason being is that a volcano is about to wipe out the remaining dinosaurs. Five films and two parks later they finally figured out this could be a problem. Of course Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff […]

Hopefully this one won’t come with a backlash that makes me feel like an a-hole. Ethan Hawke plays Reverend Ernst Toller, whose […]

Star Wars: Most Wanted

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story is far better than it has any right to be. It wasn’t high on anyone’s list of non-episodic film wish list. More people wanted a Boba Fett movie. Let that sink in. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (not the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, but it would be cool […]
