THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING Review — Winston Says it Rules

Winston’s The Kid Who Would Be King says it’s the same old King Arthur story with a new, modern twist. The Kid Who Would Be King is a modern update of the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, which many of us learned through Disney’s The Sword in the Stone (I prefer…

Glass review

GLASS Review – Fragile Story Holds Together, But Just Barely

Staci Layne Wilson’s Glass review says it combines elements from Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016), then weaves them into something wicked, new and intriguing. Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan has crafted an intriguing if somewhat convoluted tale in Glass, which can best be described as a dark superhero thriller. It combines characters and elements from Unbreakable…

The Upside Review

THE UPSIDE Review — Bryan Cranston Scores With An Assist From Kevin Hart

The Upside Review — The American version works just fine, thanks to the clever chemistry between its two stars. Let’s get this out of the way at the start: Yes, it’s an American remake of the fabulous French film The Intouchables. And no, the English language version is not quite as good. But how many of…

2019 Critics Choice Awards — Loaded With Surprising Choices

Just like the Golden Globes, the 2019 Critics Choice Awards results were wildly unpredictable, and the Oscars could go to…anyone.

Destroyer Review – Nicole Kidman is Riveting. The Film? Not So Much

Destroyer Review — Nicole Kidman is the wrecking ball in this otherwise tedious, drawn-out drama. Director Karyn Kusama knows how to pack a punch—she broke out in a big way years ago with her indie debut Girlfight. In a career of hits and misses, she’s faltered with would-be blockbusters like Aeon Flux. But if there…

VICE Review – Making Political Satire Great Again

Vice Review – A stylized, grim and funny Dick Cheney biopic starring a shape-shifting Christian Bale. Widely considered the most powerful VP ever, Dick Cheney (Christian Bale) was a Halliburton CEO who put loyalists in high-places in the government, set up Guantanamo Bay detention camp, authorized bringing down planes on 9/11, made controversial use of…

Roma Review

ROMA Review — Que Rico!

Roma Review — It’s an extraordinary, once in a lifetime, profound and world expanding film. But it’s not for everyone. If you’re of the right mindset, Oscar-winning writer/director Alfonso Cuarón’s breathtakingly poignant and personal Roma will move you to the core, a little like standing before an original Frida Kahlo painting for the first time. But if…
