The Holidays Are Off To A Hilarious and Heartfelt Start With Last Christmas (Review)

Doctor Sleep is a Glimmering Follow-Up to Stephen King’s The Shining (Review)

There seem to be very few tasks more difficult in movie making than trying to make the next chapter in one of the most iconic horror movies (and books) made over 30 years ago, no?

(He publicly has stated that he hates the Kubrick film.) With King’s properties being a hot commodity in Hollywood right now, Doctor Sleep, even if not handled properly, still easily could have been a cash grab. But thankfully, director Mike Flanagan handles Doctor Sleep with confidence and impeccable attention to detail, with the final result being a wholly satisfying next chapter in Danny Torrance’s story.

Dolemite Is My Name is a Hilarious & Triumphant Return To Form For Eddie Murphy (Review)

Following a string of box office bombs, Eddie Murphy has mostly been absent from the silver screen, with his last two starring feature films being the mediocre comedies Mr. Church and A Thousand Words.
