Dewey Singleton - Film Critic

I'm a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and have been doing reviews for many years. My views on film are often heard in markets such as Atlanta, Houston, and satellite radio. My wife often tolerates my obsession for all things film related and two sons are at an age now where 'Trolls' is way cooler than dad. Follow me on twitter @mrsingleton.

Review: SUCCESSION Episode Eight And Nine Is When The Stewie Hits The Fan

A couple of things became crystal clear after last night's episode of Succession. For starters, don't miss an episode because it puts you way behind (I was at the beach last week with my family).

Review: MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT Redefines The Action Genre

Castle Rock

Review: CASTLE ROCK A Slow Burning Deliciously Twisted Series Fans Will Love

Leave No Trace

Review: LEAVE NO TRACE A Stirring Look At How Trauma Can Reshape A Family

Leave No Trace's mesmerizing narrative, sublime cinematography, and powerful performances are brilliantly woven into a haunting tale of a veteran's struggle with PTSD.


Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is a poorly written follow up devoid of any humor and offers an extremely predictable tale which seeks to capitalize on name recognition and nothing more. 
Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind


Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind is a perfect balance of first and third person accounts creating a compelling look into a man who spread love everywhere but didn't know how to love himself.
