Chris Stuckmann’s movie reviews are always thoughtful and combine the passions of a movie fan with the critical eye of a filmmaker. I don’t always agree with his conclusions, but I always take his point of view seriously. Here’s a particularly frank review from Chris of Tom Hardy’s anticipated portrayal in Venom. While watching the review, you can feel how much he cared about the film’s potential and how disappointed he was in the result.
That said, Chris always gives credit where credit is due, be it in praising a solid performance or scene, or calling out a poor casting choice that missed the mark despite an actor’s talent. Chris’ reviews are always fair, reasoned, and a balance between his feelings as a fan and his growing expertise as a filmmaker.
