THE LION KING Review — The Circle of Remarkable CGI Life

The Lion King review — Not exactly a roaring success, but good enough. Is it possible to be awed by incredible special effects and bored at the same time? Disney’s latest rendition of The Lion King definitively answers that question. While the stunning computer generated realism of the animals is astounding, you’ve seen the story…

Stuber review

STUBER Review — Kumail Nanjiani Takes You on a Provacative Ride

Stuber Review  — While it doesn’t exactly disrupt the reluctant buddy comedy genre, it’s still good for a few laughs and thoughts. You’ve seen many hybrids of the buddy/road trip/cop/action/comedy genre over the decades. 48 Hrs., Lethal Weapon and Beverly Hills Cop, to name just a few. Stuber isan unlikely buddy comedy for the decade,…

MIDSOMMAR Review — It’s a Cruel, Cruel Summer

Midsommar review — Ari Aster, the director of Hereditary, doubles down on the dread in his follow-up feature. Dani (Florence Pugh) is a young woman with literally no one in the world. Her family is gone and while her long-term boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor) is physically there, he’s emotionally elsewhere. Grasping at straws, a grief-stricken Dani…

Spiderman: Far From Home review

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Review — Winston Says It’s Tingly

11-year old film critic Winston Ordoña’s Spider-Man: Far From Home review says the movie gets the important things right while making the material its own.

YESTERDAY Review — He Gets By With a Little Help From His Friends…And a Time Warp

Yesterday review — All Jack’s troubles seemed so far away once he woke up and found out he was the only one who had ever heard of The Beatles. What would you do if I sang out a tune (by The Beatles) and no one had ever heard it before? That pretty much sums up…

Annabelle Comes Home Review

ANNABELLE COMES HOME Review — Get the Guest Room Ready!

Annabelle Comes Home review — Her tagline is: “Miss me?” Fortunately, she still hasn’t worn out her welcome with this sinister third installment. Determined to keep the possessed doll known as “Annabelle” from killing anyone else (see: the first two Annabelle movies), demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) lock the haunted…

Toy Story 4 review

TOY STORY 4 Review — The Best Movie of the Year So Far

Toy Story 4 review — I can barely write about this film without getting misty eyed. That’s how good it is.  I don’t know how Disney/Pixar manages to do this. The masters of animated film have created a franchise four films long, four films strong, each one an absolute home run. It’s unfathomable. In fact,…

Child's play review

CHILD’S PLAY Review – This Reboot Is Harmless Fun

Staci Layne Wilson’s Child’s Play review says this new take on the devil doll casts Chucky as Alexa’s redheaded stepchild. Pretty much everyone has seen the 1988 original Child’s Play and if you’re not into horror films, then you must at least know who “Chucky” the killer doll is. He’s permeated our pop culture to…

Men in black international review

MEN IN BLACK INTERNATIONAL Review — A Properly Palatable Popcorn Movie

Men In Black International review — The cunning combination of Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani and aliens make it worth watching. There are all sorts of ways to revive a franchise: prequel, sequel, reboot, spin-off, gender switch, ethnic switch, new location, animated version, live action version of an animated film, and probably several others…
