Shazam! Fury of the Gods is pretty entertaining. Like the first film, it’s frequently quite funny and features an amusing, likable hero. He may not be the brightest guy in the room, sometimes acting before he thinks, but that’s part of his charm and he always has good intentions.

Cocaine Bear (2023) Movie Review
Cocaine Bear isn’t a horror movie, nor does it really try to be. It’s mostly comic in tone and very funny, earning laughs without ever descending into self-awareness or campy exploitation. Nobody’s ever gonna mistake it for high art, but it’s a hell of a good time. At the very least, there’s more to the film than just a great title.
Plane (2023) Movie Review
Plane ain’t gonna rack-up awards or end up on anybody’s top 10 list, but we knew that going in. What ultimately matters is it’s exactly the movie you think it will be. In that respect, it’s hard to imagine being disappointed. Butler continues to carry the action hero torch quite admirably.

Mortal Kombat (2021) Movie Review By D.M. Anderson
While Mortal Kombat isn’t a particularly good film, it certainly delivers what its niche audience is expecting…lots of fighting, blood and shout-outs to a variety of tropes & characters. The door is left open for a sequel, of course, teasing MK gamers with a name they all know well, but those who’ve never played won’t have a clue about.
The Inspection (2022) Movie Review
Sometimes The Inspection is a little too episodic for its own good, especially during the second half, with scenes that are interesting but feel more like stand-alone sequences and are therefore less impactful on the overall narrative. Still, this is an entertaining and enlightening film, made authentic by someone who lived it.
