GoodTrash Critique: Annihilation Review

As the credits on Alex Garland’s Annihilation rolled, I had to sit and ponder for a bit. I wasn’t alone. Our old GoodTrash compatriot Caleb Masters was attending as well—great minds and all that. So, we were able to ponder some things about the film aloud. However, I decided I wanted to sleep before offering […]

Black Panther review

GoodTrash Critique: Black Panther Review

I’m very excited to talk about the MCU’s 18th film in this Black Panther review. The Marvel Cinematic Universe kicks off its 10th year with a bang. 2008’s Iron Man was, in many ways, a game changer—enticing audiences with the idea of a cinematic expanded universe. A concept adapted from comics that we had never really […]

Peter Rabbit

GoodTrash Critique: Peter Rabbit Review

Somehow, I’ve had a subconscious awareness of Peter Rabbit. I recognize the name, but I never engaged with the character as a child.

He made the occasional action movie afterwards, but in 2008, Taken cemented him as something of an action icon. Following Taken, Neeson has starred in roughly a dozen or more action thrillers. These roles probably only account for […]

GoodTrash Critique: The Shape of Water

Guillermo Del Toro Presents: The Shape of Water Looking for Holiday movies off the beaten path? The Shape of Water is a great place to look. Del Toro is Back! The specific Guillermo Del Toro that I mean is the one who directed Pan’s Labyrinth, The Devil’s Backbone, Cronos and Hellboy II: The Golden Army. […]

Black Christmas

Cruel Tide Beatings from Pi Kappa Sigma: Black Christmas

The next time you find yourself cornered at a college party by some white male twenty-something waxing poetic about how you’re so much cooler than his ex-girlfriend who didn’t think Die Hard was a Christmas movie, feel free to launch into a monologue about turtle sex. (Note to my editor: this is relevant, I promise). […]
