“The Trip To Greece” Is A Delicious Comic Vacation

When The Trip first came out, I don’t think anyone necessarily intended for it to become a franchise. However, now four movies later, it has become a very unique beast. About as far removed from the Marvel Cinematic Universe as possible, these flicks are a hybrid of documentary, cooking/travel show,[...]

Kumail Nanjiani And Issa Rae Are “The Lovebirds” In This Action Comedy Romp

A good comedy pairing is always a joy to watch, almost regardless of the material. When a comedy’s premise can be high quality as well, laughs are inevitable for those watching the film. Such is most certainly the case with The Lovebirds, a very funny new movie that is hitting[...]

Justice Attempts To Be Served In “American Trial: The Eric Garner Story”

When Eric Garner died back in 2014, it was a tragedy. More than that, it may have been a crime. New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo was notoriously not charged by a Grand Jury on Staten Island with the man’s death. The words “I can’t breathe” from Garner sparked[...]

Tom Hardy Becomes “Capone” For Josh Trank

Al Capone is one of the most legendary mobsters in American history. However, of what we see depicted of him, especially on screen, concerns his “glory” days. The end of his life is rarely spoken of. Enter Josh Trank, who had long yearned to make Fonzo, a biopic of Capone[...]

“On A Magical Night” Is An Occasionally Inventive Yet Frustrating Comedic Fantasy

A good French farce can be truly something special. The way those films are able to mix comedy, romance, and more is quite something. On a Magical Night (formerly known as Chambre 212) seeks to somewhat follow in those footsteps, presenting a comic fantasy that mixes whimsy and even some[...]

“Valley Girl” Is an Inventive Remake Of The Teen Movie Classic

Remember Valley Girl? Back in the 80s, the romantic comedy helped usher in a new era for films. Eventually turning into a cult classic, the movie now has spawned a remake. Luckily, as misguided as that idea may have initially sounded, this take on the material, imagining it as a[...]

Beanie Feldstein Charms Her Way Through Learning “How To Build A Girl”

In just a few short years, Beanie Feldstein has become a comedic force in the business. After first making an impression in the surprisingly great sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Feldstein of course turned in an incredible supporting performance in Lady Bird.
