Running Time: 130 min.

Believe it or not, Thor: Ragnarok marks the seventeenth film in the Marvel cinematic universe, which began only nine years ago. That’s an awful lot of superhero flicks and as someone who sees and reviews them all, it’s difficult not to feel a bit of comic book fatigue. Thankfully, I can report that the latest entry offers a fresh voice with a playfulness that makes it a very enjoyable experience. In fact, it’s the strongest of the three features involving the character.

This episode begins with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returning to his home world of Asgard, reuniting him with his opportunistic and dangerous brother, Loki (Tom...

Running Time: 104 min.

Manicured, planned communities aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. The facade of these neighborhoods being a happy and contented place fall apart in Suburbicon. In this film, it’s pretty clear from the onset that beneath the glossy surface are desperate, opportunistic, and even racist individuals.

It’s an intriguing starting point and there are plenty of important issues raised in the feature, but it doesn’t all fit together as effectively as one might hope.

Perhaps some of these issues may have to do with the screenplay itself. The film is based on material written in the mid 80s by Joel and Ethan Cohen (who at the time...

BIG NEW RELEASES!

Annabelle: Creation - This horror flick is a prequel the 2014 hit Annabelle, which was a spin-off from the 2013 blockbuster, The Conjuring. Still with me? The film introduces the world to the very creepy and demonically possessed title character. Set on a farm, a group of orphans find themselves under threat from the creation. It earned decent notices during its...
