No Laughing Matter

No Laughing Matter

Joker, a new take on DC’s Clown Prince of Crime, will go down as one of the year’s big missed opportunities.

Movies in your local indie theaters.

Crowning Around

This Downtown Abbey movie is a mess, although it’s the sort of mess a true fan might be willing to tolerate.

Reel Indie

Reminisce with The Terminator and Selena, or try out a new surreal comedy starring Tim Heidecker of Tim & Eric fame.

Blood Simple

Sylvester Stallone takes his iconic John Rambo character and places him in what amounts to little more than an ultraviolent MAGA wankathon in Rambo: Last Blood, easily the worst film in the franchise and one of the worst in Stallone’s career.

The Loft's Scream O' Rama returns, and there's plenty of other films coming to your favorite indie venues this week.

Bottom’s Up

Hustlers, starring Jennifer Lopez as a stripper who goes smooth criminal during the Great Recession, is getting some great reviews. I’m going against the grain on this one, for I find it derivative, boring and hampered by a shallow script.

Reel Indie

Check out the latest indie movie offerings in town.

Clown Show

With It Chapter Two we have a needed, yet pretty bad, conclusion to a saga started by a previous, far superior film. If you saw and liked the first movie, you have to watch this one to get the full story. You’ll also be witnessing somewhat of a decline in quality.

Reel Indie

Arizona Underground Film Festival brings a slew of indie films to Tucson.

For Crying Out Loud

After the Wedding has the dubious distinction of having the lion’s share of its dialogue delivered by Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore and Billy Crudup. That’s a solid pedigree for starters.

Reel Indie

Anime, Napoleon Dynamite and Citizen Kane all make their way to big screens near you.

Unholy Matrimony

After some strong but smallish roles in Ash vs Evil Dead and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Samara Weaving gets a lead role and totally kills it in Ready or Not.

Reel Indie

Ready for battle? Don't miss Kill Bill or Rambo!

New Kids on the Block

The summer needed a big blast of funny stupidity, and Good Boys provides it.

Mad Max and The Warriors kick things up in the film world of Tucson this week.
