The film is entertaining enough but given Affleck’s former directing success, we unfortunately (and perhaps mistakenly) expect more.
Movie and Theatre Reviews
Directed with confidence by Washington, FENCES is a pure joy to watch with two dynamite actors in the prime of their careers.
There’s sadness and plenty of humor and but the movie tries so hard to be uplifting and deep, that it just gets in the way of itself.
The movie is likeable and funny, yet extremely frustrating. I just wish the stars had a high-belt or two in their pockets.
The film is a beautifully sad story about life, loss and family that’s easily one of the best movies of the year.
The film is a nice escape to the films of Hollywood yesteryear.
Director David Yates sets up an ending that will leave you wishing part 2 were right around the corner.
Gyllenhaal and Shannon are outstanding, Shannon in particular. This is one of those films that you’ll think about long after the lights come back on.
It’s a sad, frustrating and inspirational film that puts you right in the mindset of what this couple was feeling and thinking.
The perfectly cast Pushing Dead is a warm, gentle and meandering story about an HIV-positive writer named Dan (James Roday) and the friends that surround him.
The whole film is a bit inside baseball. It’s interesting as a comic book and Marvel film fan. If that isn’t you, you may want to skip this.
Criss is entirely captivating from beginning to end, and delivers a truly enjoyable show which the audience in his native San Francisco thoroughly enjoyed.
The film is too short on character and tries way too hard for that final ‘gotcha’.
Tom Hanks has never been better in this retelling of the famous USAir flight that ended up in the Hudson River.
‘The Hollars’ is quirky and cheery, full of wonderful actors and a lead character that has lost his way in life and has a story that turns dramatic in the final act.
Both Hopkins and McKellen are putting on a master class and it’s not to be missed.
Writer/director Ben Sledge has made a film that could easily be an episode of The Twilight Zone.
Who would have thought a movie about a book editor would be enjoyable?
With a title like Puerto Ricans in Paris you’d expect this to be a fun, Parisian romp about two guys out of their element. That’s partially true… except for the fun part.
‘Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping’ is absurd, often hilarious and thankfully never takes its site off their intended mark, namely today’s pop stars.
