Rough Night (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern I didn’t laugh out loud once during this movie. A few chuckles, but nothing serious. Walking in, I expected—as was advertised in the trailer—a Weekend At Bernie’s-style comedy. Walking out…well, that’s a different story. I’ll include a link to the trailer below, and also to a video uploaded by heavy-weight YouTube reviewer and… Read more »

It Comes At Night (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern A24 is the new gold standard for independent horror-thrillers, hands down. Like their critically-acclaimed 2015 film, The Witch (stylized, The VVitch), this film is beautifully-shot. The filmmakers chose to focus on chiaroscuro (low-key lighting that causes a lot of a shot to be engulfed in shadow and darkness), and use slow-tracks and long-shot… Read more »

The Mummy (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Properties based on properties based on properties. This is the future of Hollywood, folks—the endless recycling of once-popular titles for a new generation, because we’ve (for the most part) run out of new and creative ideas. Within our lifetime, both Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings may fall victim to this… Read more »

2017 NBA Finals Preview: Clash of the Titans – Part III

Follow @9pointplay For the third time in as many years, the Golden State Warriors will face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. This was the expected outcome from the moment last season ended, despite the fact that a third consecutive matchup has never happened before. The Cavs retained the best player in the world,… Read more »

Baywatch (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern Paramount just loves to throw their cash around. Sure, they can afford it; with such flagship franchises as my beloved Transformers—and their celluloid juggernaut director, Michael Bay—the studio couldn’t care less if a film they put out is a critical canner or not. As long as people flock to see their movies, it’s… Read more »

    Follow @theREELevankern **WARNING: Some spoilers to follow! Catch the season five recap marathon this Saturday, May 27th, at 11/10c, on Cartoon Network.** Series reboots—like movie sequels—are hard, especially for beloved series or ones that’ve been absent for a period of years.

  • The Wall (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern War movies are hit-and-miss with me. I haven’t seen Saving Private Ryan all the way through (don’t judge me…). I loved American Sniper—it’s a story that, I think, needed to be told. The Patriot is a good one—an annual watch, like James Cameron’s Titanic—if a bit far-fetched, but that’s just how Roland Emmerich… Read more »

  • The Circle (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern Based upon a 2013 novel by Dave Eggers, The Circle tries too hard to tackle contemporary social issues—concerning personal privacy and the boundaries of the internet—and fails. Unlike the book—which, in my research, seems to follow more of an “underdog story” arc, concerning protagonist, Mae Holland—the film is so very up-front with the… Read more »

    Follow @theREELevankern Those who know me know how deep my love for quality science-fiction goes. Few, however, know that that love was firmly reinforced by the Mass Effect franchise (and that my own writing reflects not only its themes, but its style). When I first heard about Andromeda, the latest installment in the ongoing series—even… Read more »

  • Gifted (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern I saw this film at a home-town cinema house in my city, even though the larger chains would be getting it, too, I found out. I’m glad I went; other than the change of scenery from the larger theatres I frequent, this film fits the independent cinema atmosphere. I’m happy to support smaller… Read more »

  • Going in Style (2017) – Film Review

    Follow @theREELevankern A remake of a 1979 film of the same name (starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg), Going in Style is a fun and poignant film about friendship, family, and taking what one is owed. Most of the build-up of the film is time spent constructing our three main characters, played by… Read more »

While it is the 6th straight playoff-less season in Buffalo, we’re truly only at the end of Year 2 of the Rebuild (Trust the Process™). It… Read more »

    Follow @theREELevankern You know that old “Where’s the beef?” commercial for Wendy’s? Perfect analogy for this movie here, I feel. I’m not going to totally destroy the thing; there are some things about it that I admire, but I’ll get to that later on. I’m a bad-news-first kind of guy, so I’ll say that piece… Read more »
