“Ocean’s 8” makes heists look fashionable and fun

Maybe it’s just me, but Ocean’s 8 mostly flew under the radar in the lead up to release. The film is a huge summer movie, but it never felt like that. Well, that actually worked in its favor, as the movie is a really pleasant surprise. Opening today, it’s far[...]

“A Star is Born” Trailer suggests an awards hopeful

Yesterday, a Trailer dropped for the rare remake that also has Academy Award aspirations. Most of the time, remakes are passable at best, and atrocious at worst. This one, however, could be different. The film in question is, in case you couldn’t guess, A Star is Born, which also marks[...]

Brett Haley has crafted another phenomenal crowd pleaser with “Hearts Beat Loud”

Never underestimate a film that can leave you with a warm feeling on the inside. Crowd pleasing cinema is like chicken soup…it’s just good for you. Brett Haley is a master at this. The writer/director has been forging an incredibly underrated career, one that a few decades ago would have[...]

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a tear inducing tribute to Mr. Rogers

For millions of people, when they were kids, Mr. Rogers was a notable influence in their lives. Fred Rogers was not just a children’s entertainer. He was a protector of sorts, someone who actually cared. This week, a documentary about his life hits screens. It’s called Won’t You Be My[...]

Trailer Round Up: “Suspiria”, “White Boy Rick”, “Widows”, and “Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet”

Today has been a hell of a day for Trailers. Over the course of the morning/early afternoon, a quartet of high profile films released first looks. The movies in question are the remake of Suspiria from Luca Guadagnino, White Boy Rick, Widows from Steve McQueen, and Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph[...]

“Hearts Beat Loud” and “The Incredibles 2”: Films to see in June

Summer 2018 has arrived, ladies and gentlemen. With that proclamation, the movies will once again be changing. A deluge of blockbusters are ahead (not that they haven’t already been here for months now), but also some very strong independent counter programming. In fact, a few of the very best films[...]

Shailene Woodley leads a tale of survival in “Adrift”

It seems like every other year, Shailene Woodley gets a feature piece here on the site. Some of that may just be due to when her films opt to come out, but I think there’s more to it than that. Frankly, she’s just such an interesting and talented actress, one[...]

Where does Star Wars go next with their “Story” Films after Solo?

HOLLYWOOD HEROES™: What is the long term future for the Star Wars brand? This is something I’ve been thinking about since Sunday, when the initial box office numbers began to trickle in as the weekend progressed for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Not so much the Saga entries, at least[...]

“American Animals” is a vibrant directorial showcase

You don’t often see filmmakers alternate between documentary and narrative fare. Most of the time, a director of docs sticks with nonfiction cinema, with the same being true on the flip side. Those who move between worlds are rare beasts, indeed. Even more so, documentarians who go narrative often end[...]

Laura Dern gives one of the performances of the year so far in “The Tale”

By and large, the 2018 Sundance Film Festival was considered to be one that wouldn’t have much of an impact come Oscar season. Most years, at least one or two movies end up in play for Academy Awards. This year, however, there didn’t seem to be that sort of a[...]
