Any film that has the brilliant actor Stephen McKinley Henderson in it is tops in my book.
The Marvels is wacky, doesn’t take itself too seriously and comes in at a brisk 100 minutes. And it’s loads of fun.
Lily Gladstone is the heart and soul of the movie. She’s got such a soulful and expressive face. As members of her family die one by one of mysterious circumstances, that soul behind her eyes slowly diminishes. Her performance is incredible.
Written by Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp and directed by Larry Charles, Dicks the Musical can best be described as The Parent Trap as if it was filtered through John Waters’ brain.
I love how each of these films help to teach children one specific thing and not bombard them with dozens of themes and ideas like some other animated films.
The short film follows two gunmen, Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal, former friends and lovers who reunite after several years apart.
The Guardians are a family. It’s about friendship – always has been – and finding acceptance and love, even when you’re not looking for it.
Jonathan Majors is freaking fierce. He’s got this calm, quiet rage that just feels like it wants to erupt.
Florence Pugh is, as usual, great. She’s the rock here, grounding the whole film in reality.
What Fletch has going for it is the performances, especially Hamm’s and Annie Mumolo’s, who plays his certifiably crazy neighbor, Eve.
The real fun was watching Goldblum, Dern and Sam Neill’s characters together. As summer movies go, you can do worse.
Jazzfest: A New Orleans Story brings that energy and revelry you experience at the festival and showcases it in the theater.
It’s dark, gritty and there’s never a wink to the audience. It’s also the first Bat-film that shows the character doing detective work.
As a fan of the original Sopranos TV show, which ran on HBO from 1999 to 2007, I was eagerly awaiting The Many Saints of Newark, series creator David Chase’s prequel to the long-running series.
