Tribeca 2021: ‘No Running’ Review—A Subpar Thriller
It’s rare when we get to see a person of color headline a mystery sci-fi thriller, but that is precisely what we get with No Running, a film from Delmar Washington in his feature directorial debut. The film follows a young black man named Jaylen (Skylan Brooks), whose girlfriend vanishes in a storm.
‘Luca’ Review—A Heartwarming Beauty
Pixar has always been my favorite animation studio, and they have blessed us all again with a Disney+ original, Luca. This film comes to us from long-time storyboard artist Enrico Casarosa in his feature directorial debut. Our story follows two young boys having fun in an Italian summer as they must hide the fact that they are sea monsters in a city that fears them.
‘iCarly’ Reboot Premiere Review—A Garbage Fire
I was ready. I was ready to see Freddie Benson go, “In 5, 4, 3, 2—” and point at Carly Shay as she begins her live web show. I was ready to see Spencer Shay get into weird antics as he sculpts things. I thought I was ready. But I wasn’t.
‘Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ Review — A Lackluster Action Comedy

As amazing as horror movies are, there comes a time when we get tired of the endless flickering lights, objects moving by themselves, and bumps in the night. This film offers a prime example of that fatigue.
The Conjuring Universe: All 8 Movies Ranked From Worst to Best!

‘In the Heights’ Review—An Energetic Musical Feat
Lights up on Washington Heights as Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians, Now You See Me 2) directs In the Heights, a musical drama based on Qiara Alegría Hudes and Lin Manuel-Miranda’s Tony-winning musical of the same name. This film follows the members of the Washington Heights community as they face a blackout, all while pursuing their dreams.
‘Army of the Dead’ Review — An Intense Zombie Heist
The newest zombie movie to feature “of the dead” in its title and the second Zack Snyder film to follow this trend is Army of the Dead. This is a zombie heist movie that serves as Snyder’s second 2021 movie after this year’s fan-favorite superhero film, Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
