“Mulan” Will Come To Disney+ In September…For An Extra Charge

For months, the fate of Disney’s live action Mulan remake has been up in the air. It’s seemed like whatever Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan’s Tenet did, Mulan followed. Now, however, Disney is changing the game. In early September, they’re going to have their would be tentpole open on Disney+.[...]

James D’Arcy Discusses His Directorial Debut “Made In Italy”

There’s almost always something really interesting to hear about when an actor makes their directorial debut, and especially when they’ve written the project as well. This was, unsurprisingly, no exception a few days ago when I was able to hop on the phone to chat for a few minutes with[...]

Jerry O’Connell Is Wasted In The Deeply Unfunny “Ballbuster”

Jerry O’Connell deserved better. Frankly, anyone does than this, though O’Connell in particular is a solid actor who has thrived in raunchy comedies before. However, this marks a career low-point, if not for him (he at least still tries) than his agent for passing this script on to him. Ballbuster[...]

Steve McQueen’s “Lovers Rock” Will Open The 2020 New York Film Festival

Moments ago, the New York Film Festival announced their Opening Night Selection, and it’s not a title you’d expect. Going in a different direction than at least I anticipated, they’ve tapped Steve McQueen’s Lovers Rock as the Opener. Part of a five movie collection of McQueen’s called the Small Axe[...]

“Made In Italy” Is A Pleasing Father And Son Story

Tales of fathers and sons are nothing new to movies. It’s all in how you choose to tell this story. For some, it becomes a gritty drama. For others, it becomes a silly comedy. Often, a road trip is involved. Actor turned writer/director James D’Arcy manages to take a tiny[...]

Ron Howard Chronicles The Human Spirit In “Rebuilding Paradise”

Lately, Ron Howard has had his eye on the documentary format. The Academy Award winning director, long known as the helmer of dramatic Oscar fare (after his career as an actor, of course), has recently been interested in non-fiction. Mostly, it’s been musically inclined, with works like The Beatles: Eight[...]

“Summerland” Goes For Your Emotions

Making a tearjerker that still has a sense of fun to it is a fairly difficult proposition. After all, you want the emotions to seem real, so the playfulness can’t overwhelm it, or frankly, vice-versa. While the back half of Summerland goes for emotions and tears more than the first[...]

Updated Academy Award Predictions For The End Of July!

With August coming tomorrow, this would usually be prime time for a new updated to Oscar predictions. However, these are not normal times, so for many pundits, awards season prognostication is on hold. Call me crazy, though, but I’m keeping at it. Am I (as I stated on social media[...]

“The Cuban” Has Music In Its Heart But Not Enough Meat On Its Bones

Cuba is a really interesting place. I’ve actually been there, though only for a day, back a few years ago before the U.S. government again made it difficult to travel to the island. I only mention this to bring up the potential inherent in setting a story even partially in[...]

The Toronto International Film Festival Showcases Its Full Lineup

After unveiling a few of the works that would be at the fest, the Toronto International Film Festival has today releases their full lineup for 2020. Obviously, this comes in the wake of COVID-19 and the coronavirus pandemic changing what film festivals will be like this year. Toronto had already[...]
