Little Shop of Horrors

The 1986 version of Little Shop of Horrors is a celebration of two beloved motion picture genres: the musical and the cheesy science fiction flick. Before making it to the screen in its final form during the '86 Christmas season, Little Shop of Ho...

Love's Labour's Lost

Love's Labour's Lost has always been regarded as one of the most enigmatic of Shakespeare's plays. In modern times, it is almost never performed, and, unlike the text of the Bard's major works, it fails to come alive on the printed page. In an in...

Mamma Mia!

Mamma Mia! delivers exactly what one can reasonably expect from it. It's a faithful adaptation of the stage play of the same name but, more importantly, it's a repository for ABBA songs - nearly two dozen in total. Considering that the average ru...

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again

Even recognizing that it’s among the most unnecessary sequels ever made and that it exists purely because of how much money the original Mamma Mia made ($144M domestic, $610M worldwide), it’s difficult to hate Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. I...

Mesrine: Killer Instinct

If there's one thing to be disliked about Mesrine: Killer Instinct, it's the inauspicious ending. Part One of a two-part saga (with the conclusion in Mesrine: Public Enemy Number One), the movie feels incomplete, which is unsurprising considering ...

Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1

Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1 concludes the story begun in Mesrine: Killer Instinct. Although the two pieces can be seen as halves of a whole, it's not hard to understand why the project was bisected. Shootouts, prison escapes, and random acts of v...
