Review – Stowaway (2021)

Stowaway – Review | Netflix Sci-fi Thriller Drama | Heaven of Horror

by Kevin Muller

As a genre, films that take place in outer space can go down many different paths. Unlike most of big budget films, director Joe Penna’s Stowaway, takes a more intimate approach with a cast of four very capable actors being the only ones on screen for the close to two hour run time. The final product is an admirable story that its slow, but interesting nature, may turn off at few.

Best & Worst Films of 2020

The 25 Best Films Of 2020

by Kevin Muller

The Worst Films of 2020

Movie review: “Wonder Woman 1984” still the best DC has to offer

10. Wonder Woman: 1984

My lifelong fans know that this number 10 spot, unlike the other nine, is reserved for a film that I didn’t necessarily hate, but just thought was a letdown. There are some good elements here, mainly Pedro Pascal playing what is probably the most charming villain ever. I understand what director Patty Jenkins was trying to do by making this a sort of an action/romantic comedy, but by trying that she failed what could’ve been a great follow up.  Kristen Wiig is given nothing to work with as Cheetah. It feels like a bad stereotypical 90’s comic book baddie, nerd glasses and all. For a project that cost over 200 million dollars, it feels like a bad Saturday morning cartoon.

Review – Nomadland (2020)

By Kevin Muller

Nomadland stars Frances McDormand, in preparation for her role as Fern, lived out the nomad lifestyle for a few months prior to filming. The goal was to mimic the authentic nature of the 2017 non-fiction novel written by Jessica Bruder, which presented the lives of Americans who live their lives on the road. McDormand, who is also a producer on the project, wanted a director to bring out the beauty of the book, so she grabbed relatively newcomer Chloe Zhao, to bring levity and respectfulness to a lifestyle most of us would never be able to endure. Does it all work, or is it a bore?
