'Super Troopers 2' Review
If you’re a fan of the 2001 cult stoner comedy “Super Troopers”, about a group of fun-loving Vermont highway patrol officers who constantly play pranks on each other and the public (often while on the job), then you won’t be disappointed with this long-awaited sequel, which brings back the entire cast and delivers plenty of laughs.
'Genius: Picasso' Review
Season One of the National Geographic Channel’s first-ever scripted series, “Genius”, focused on the life of Albert Einstein, with Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush playing the scientific mastermind in his later years and newcomer Johnny Flynn giving a breakthrough performance as Einstein in his younger days.
Dwayne Johnson and director Brad Peyton have previously collaborated on the fun family adventure sequel “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” and 2015’s surprisingly sophisticated, excellent action/thriller “San Andreas”. But film No. 3 for this duo isn’t nearly as successful…more proof that the Johnson charm-o-meter is continuing to trend in the wrong direction.
Oscar-nominated director and screenwriter Tony Gilroy is no stranger to crafting stories surrounding espionage, spies, agencies, double-crossing and deal-making with money and lives on the line. His resume includes the first four “Bourne” films, “Michael Clayton”, “State of Play” and “Duplicity”.
'A Quiet Place' Review
After watching the first cut of “A Quiet Place”, Emily Blunt leaned over to husband, co-star and director John Krasinski and told him he basically made a silent film. He thought that was cool, but Blunt suggested he add more sound so the film could really come alive.
'Ready Player One' Review
Sorry to disappoint all the haters – including everyone who plastered the internet with phony marketing posters – but “Ready Player One” is a very good movie.
'Isle of Dogs' Review
Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animated triumph, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” (based on the Roald Dahl book) is one of my all-time favorite animated films. Bold, daring and visually stunning – I’ve seen it at least five times since its 2009 release.
'Sherlock Gnomes' Review
2011’s “Gnomeo & Juliet” is charming, sweet, emotional and genuine. I told lead voice actress Emily Blunt “it’s a terrific animated movie” on “The Tonight Show”. I can’t believe that was more than 7 years ago.
