Whether it’s classic creatures like King Kong and Godzilla or newer fare like those seen in 2006’s "The Host" or any glimpsed in the "Cloverfield" series, audiences love themselves a good monster flick. Last year’s "Kong: Skull Island" made... Read the full review »

Had no idea how deep within the Black community skating ran. Just as regions or states have a sound, they also have movement. Seeing how much it means, as well as what the slow shutting down of locations does to the community - wasn't prepared for... Read the full review »

Netflix’s latest original feature isn’t going to blow the doors off your house, but that’s not what it’s geared for. Instead, "Set It Up" is a silly, light-hearted, rom-com that’ll take you on an amusing ride all the way to the end. Lead... Read the full review »

Entertaining popcorn flick that’s nothing more than it appears - an opportunity for several talented actors to have a great time working together. If the last 15-20min weren’t so focused on explaining everything - not to mention the clunky, na... Read the full review »

It’s been 14 years since Brad Bird’s now-classic "The Incredibles" hit theaters and, for many, the wait’s been excruciating. Gratefully, not only are Parrs returning, but they’re returning with a story that’s a sequel in the purest form... Read the full review »
