Review – Rescue Me! (“Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers”)

Mixing Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Ralph Breaks The Internet, and Space Jam: A New Legacy, this made-for-Disney+ movie has raised the ire of many Rescue Ranger fans, as it doesn’t feature the original (squeaky) cartoon voices from the treasured long-running 1989 TV series.

It’s the year 10,191 and nobody’s invented sunglasses? Really? If you’ve…

Review – A Sequel To Die For (“The Suicide Squad”)

Writer and director James Gunn of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, that’s who! If you saw the flawed 2016 Suicide…
