Movie Review: “The Witch”


Something truly wicked this way comes in the form of “The Witch” (stylized as The VVitch): the new horror sensation and latest offering presented by A24 (who’s been on quite the role lately) and it sure is a doozy. The film is written and directed by first time filmmaker Robert Eggers. It takes place in New England in the 1600s,…

Movie Review: “The Good Dinosaur”


“The Good Dinosaur” comes from Disney/Pixar. It has been labeled as the first flop from that combination, which made me more than a little curious. They’ve been pretty bulletproof. I didn’t think there was any way that they made a bad movie. Figured it was probably Star Wars that pulled everyone’s attention away, allowing this film to rake in only…
