'Challengers' movie review with Casey T. Allen

Challengers is an interesting study of relationships with an arresting soundtrack of thumping, techno, dance music. Like a trend forecaster at a fashion magazine might say, Challengers is a film that feels like now.

'The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare' movie review with Casey T. Allen

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is filled with people who are not trying hard enough at all to give viewers something new, personal, or interesting.

'Civil War' movie review with Casey T. Allen

Don't let the previews fool you. This film is not an action-packed adventure. Civil War works to be a more human story by showing the lengths reporters and photojournalists go to simply to do their job capturing the realities of war.

'Road House' movie review with Casey T. Allen

I get the feeling this film was never about telling a unique or articulate story. Even from the beginning concept of doing this remake, it was probably all about virile men showing off how to throw a good punch.

'Shirley' movie review with Casey T. Allen

Shirley slips into the easy pitfalls of many biopics and history adaptations: it paints its subject as too much of a righteous saint/political figure and not enough as a human one.

"Cabrini" movie review with Casey

I have to say Cabrini is not a disaster. The production design, costumes, editing, and cinematography, while very plain, all look professional and consistent. And it's nice to see something in movie theaters so proudly optimistic and working to spread compassion.

Oscar talk with film critic Casey T. Allen

Casey gives us his take on this year's Oscars ceremony takes a look at the big winners of the night.

'Dune: Part Two' movie review with Casey

An important part of any memorable sci-fi film is establishing a fictional futuristic world that is marvelous and believable, and this film delivers that like you would not believe.

Flix at :48: 'Drive-Away Dolls'

The screenplay has so little content, it can't even fill a 90-minute runtime. Drive Away Dolls is one hour and 24 minutes, but it felt so much longer. That's a bad sign when you lose all concepts of recorded time while watching a short film.

Flix at :48: 'Lisa Frankenstein'

Maybe parts of this film are too watered down to reach a wider and less adventurous range of viewers. But it's entertaining, it will get people laughing in the theater, and it will remind viewers that love develops in all shapes and sizes.
