"The Book of Henry" Review

"The Book of Henry" is, without a doubt, the strangest movie of the year. It's based on an original screenplay and not a book, because this story, in print, never would've gotten a publisher. This is a film that mixes genres: drama, family dynamics, light comedy, suspense, action (and a few I can't mention). Last year's "The Accountant" included all of those, and did a brilliant job melding them together into a coherent, effective movie.

'Mud' and 'Take Shelter' Director Jeff Nichols Delivers University of Arkansas 2017 Commencement Address

'Mud' and 'Take Shelter' Director Jeff Nichols Delivers University of Arkansas 2017 Commencement Address

Perhaps that’s a bit of an overstatement. How about this - Jeff Nichols is one of Hollywood’s elite writer-directors of the 21st century under the age of 40? Better right? Regardless of age or adjectives, perhaps we can agree that writer-director Jeff Nichols has quickly established himself as a visual auteur whose knack for storytelling transcends the metaphysical, instilling a unique sense of place through carefully crafted characters and layered familial bonds as seen in Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special, and Loving. All this in a career that spans less than ten years.

"All Eyez On Me" Review

Two years after the satisfying but lengthy N.W.A. origin story "Straight Outta Compton" comes this biopic of a solo rap artist who changed the music industry and popular culture forever. "All Eyez on Me", released on what would've been Tupac Shakur's 46th birthday, is a cradle-to-grave look at the iconic performer, who lived his 25 turbulent, troubled and triumphant years to the fullest.

'The Bad Batch' Promotional Posters Are Anything But BAD

'The Bad Batch' Promotional Posters Are Anything But BAD

All these things you’ve done, put you right here, with me — Before The Bad Batch opens on June 23, you might want to check out the latest character posters from Ana Lily Amirpour's vicious post-apocalyptic fairy tale featuring the headless bodies of Keanu Reeves, Jason Mamoa, and Suki Waterhouse. But if recent trailers indicate the type of affair we're getting into, it's fair to say Amirpour's The Bad Batch offers a contrasting proposition with a tad more promotional flare as compared to her 2014 dreamy genre mash-up A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. But if you were a fan of her debut - as was I, then I suspect you are here to see Amirpour's artistic lens at play.

"Cars 3" Review

As I’ve said and written so many times - “Cars” is my favorite Pixar movie. And I remain one of the few who believe the 2011 International Racing Tour spy caper sequel “Cars 2” is a very entertaining film. Now comes “Cars 3”, which is actually the “Cars 2” everyone thought they wanted.
