    Movie Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Strikes Sequel Success (Mostly)

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    While the first Kingsman film seemed to maintain a certain sense of dignity amid its fantastical action and frantic characters, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is 100% silliness to the point of being a cartoon.

    Movie Review: ‘It’ Floats With Fear and (Horror) Fun

    It Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    It is a horror remake where director Andy Muschietti creates a film that better serves the story rather than the current modern horror template. His film is smart enough to know that the tale of kids conquering fear doesn’t require extra jump scares, exposition or driving music. It’s not about the creepy clown in the dark that goes boo, even though …

    Movie Review: ‘The Trip to Spain’ Is a Third Helping of Casual Comedic Gold

    The Trip to Spain Movie Review MovieSpoon.com

    It occurred to me while watching The Trip to Spain that Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are the most natural of funny British actors. Even though they’re essentially playing semi-fictional depictions of themselves in the Trip movie series, there’s a grace to their comedic banter and frustrating plights that rings too true.
