Movie Review: Lady of the Manor (2021)

Lady of the Manor marks Justin Long’s directorial debut after an illustrious career in many high-profile mid to late-2000s comedies. He co-directs the film with his brother Christian, who also makes his directorial debut. Together, they craft a rather middling and recycled comedy with . . . well . . . middling and recycled results….

Movie Review: Ride the Eagle (2021)

Trent O’Donnell’s Ride The Eagle has the makings of becoming the next quirky indie darling with its charming aesthetics and top-tier cast. And though it attempts to pick up the mantle from films like “Little Miss Sunshine” and similar fuzzy, off-beat dramedies, deep down, this collaboration between O’Donnell and actor/screenwriter Jake Johnson ultimately severs a…

As the Marvel and DC franchises have become more popular, studios opt for…

But since this is a film review and not an entry for a layperson’s guide to…

Movie Review: The Exchange (2021)

After helming the disastrously unfunny “Dirty Grandpa,” director Dan Mazer returns with a more quiet and small-scale comedy than his tenure in shocking and gross-out humor. Mazer is mostly known for his Academy Award-winning “Borat” screenplay, and his collaborations with Sacha Baron Cohen are the funniest things he’s ever done. In The Exchange, he and…
