Suicide Squad

Bonus Film Review: Suicide Squad

Kristian Lin
Once upon a time, Warner Brothers revived its Batman series with a talented young director at the helm named Christopher Nolan. And it was all great, as Batman Begins and The Dark Knight brought in large hauls at the box office...


Ghostbusters

Bonus Film Review: Ghostbusters

Kristian Lin
Over the past year or so, a lot of hysterical men succeeded in making me ashamed of my own gender over the new reboot of Ghostbusters that opened this past weekend. (They’re still out there, too, artificially depressing t...



Kate Beckinsale

Considering Kate Beckinsale

Kristian Lin
Sometimes you need a vacation to step away and think. I recently took a week of personal time and found myself pondering Kate Beckinsale (and the fact that I haven’t done one of these Considering pieces in a while). Of co...


Neighbors 2

Bonus Film Review: Neighbors 2

Kristian Lin
I try not to read other people’s reviews of a movie before I’ve seen it and written up my own critique, but I do try to get a fix on the general tenor of whether people think it’s good, bad, or indifferent. I ...

The Caravan Showing At Ridglea Theater On Saturday

Jeff Prince
There are no great movie horses anymore. No Triggers, no Flickas, no Clovers, no Buttermilks. Not even a Mr. Ed. All the great horses, gone. Whoa there, Nellie! The Caravan is an award-winning, 105-minute film that chronicles a...



Channing Tatum and fellow sailors dance in "Hail, Caesar!"

Bonus Movie Review: Hail, Caesar!

Kristian Lin
Over the weekend, I watched the Super Bowl and got caught up on this week’s movies, and I got far more entertainment value from the latter. This came especially from Hail, Caesar!, which was good enough to make me think o...


Alan Rickman

R.I.P., Alan Rickman

Kristian Lin
I remember the first time I saw Die Hard, there was one scene in particular that impressed me. It was when Alan Rickman’s terrorist leader, Hans Gruber, goes off by himself in the middle of the movie and finds himself sta...
