“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” Not Great Success, But Still Very Nice

“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” Not Great Success, But Still Very Nice

Sebastian Hunt, Staff Writer October 30, 2020

★★★½ Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, simply put, is a more ordinary film than 2006’s Borat. That’s the best comparison of the two. Instead of focusing primarily on the hysterically spontaneous...

The (Boring) Game Is Afoot In “Enola Holmes”

Sebastian Hunt, Staff Writer October 21, 2020

★★½ As far as late-night, not-really-paying-attention viewing goes, one could certainly do worse than Netflix’s Enola Holmes. It’s not really bad — producer/star Millie Bobby Brown is certainly...

The 2020 Academy Awards, Predicted

Sebastian Hunt, Staff Writer February 8, 2020

Snubs notwithstanding, the 91st Academy Awards looks exciting. The majority of the nominees are deserved, the show is thankfully hostless, and there’s no clear favorite in a number of categories. The...

“1917” Somberly Marches To Victory

Sebastian Hunt, Staff Writer January 16, 2020
