If I'm reviewing a movie, I refuse to walk out no matter how bad it is. It doesn't happen often. Transformers was one of those films where I wanted to walk out but didn't because I was reviewing it. And I saw two or three of those awful movies. Night School is part of that now. I…Read more ‘Night School’ is a run-of-the-mill comedy that relies too much on Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish (ClickTheCity)

in the deep end with Daniel Sloss

I just saw the two-part comedy special Daniel Sloss: Live Shows on Netflix and I'm still reeling. What a brilliant mind!

Filled with Gags, ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Struggles Under Too Many Narrative Parts (ClickTheCity)

It was a tough break, coming right after Avengers: Infinity War and director Peyton Reed did his best to deliver something post-Infinity War that could stand on its own and not carry the burden of that weight with it but it seemed like it buckled under that pressure.

‘Game Night’ is a Screwball Comedy We Didn’t Know We Needed Right Now (ClickTheCity)

I really, really enjoyed Game Night. It's so funny and so enjoyable and thrilling and satisfying.
