Movie Review: I Am Not Your Negro (2016)

In the modern-day cinematic era reflecting racial divide, audiences are treated to their share of sensational discord, divisiveness, distrust and destruction with impacting, yet familiar fare, such as 2016’s offering of the immensely received “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and even the profoundly thought-provoking and absorbing male-bonding drama “Moonlight” that speak the…

Movie Review: Railroad Tigers (2016)

When American audiences last saw our diminutive chopsocky champion, Jackie Chan, he was kicking butt and taking numbers alongside “Jackass” and “The Dukes of Hazzard” star Johnny Knoxville in the flaccid and forgettable 2016 voltage vehicle “Skiptrace.” Well, the sixty-something martial arts megastar has found yet another frenetic farce to strut his stuff as he…

English filmmaker Mat Whitecross’ (“Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”) revealing and roguish musical documentary Oasis:…

Movie Review: Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016)

What a squandered opportunity for director Greg Mottola to churn out a generically noisy suburban spy spoof in the toothless comedy caper Keeping Up with the Joneses.
