Review: The Other Side of the Wind

Orson Welles’ final film, The Other Side of the Wind, was shot from 1970-1976, but it wasn’t fully assembled until this year. The film released by Netflix today is an imperfect salvage job. Welles only finished editing about 40-...

In defense of jump scares in movies

Review: Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again is neither entirely stupid nor entirely witty. It’s just smart enough to set-up a decent joke, but just dumb enough to flop its execution. It sees how pop-culture has changed since the series last outing (...
