Movie Trailer: The Lion King (2019)

The continued effort to update and bring “live-action” realism to their classics (e.g., “Dumbo,” “The Jungle Book,” “Beauty and the Beast,”) continues for Disney with The Lion King. It follows the same premise as the 1994 animated feature (as well as “Kimba the White Lion” from which it was lifted) in which a young lion…

Movie Review: Anna and the Apocalypse (2018)

Off the top of your head have you ever wondered when the next zombie Christmas musical would launch for your seasonal enjoyment? Well, one would have to look no further than the John McPhail (“Where Do We Go From Here?”) directed Anna and the Apocalypse, a festive zom-com spectacle with a sense of bloody cheekiness….

Movie Review: The Greatest Showman (2017)

The Greatest Showman is a confusing animal. Its opening frames begin the movie by displaying the familiar and orchestral 20th Century Fox logo used from the 50s through the 80s, implying the audience is in for a reverent throwback to the classic Hollywood musicals of yore. Then — literally six seconds later — the studio’s…

Movie Review: Coco (2017)

“Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die” — Buddha Directed by Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”) and Adrian Molina, Coco, the latest animated film from Disney-Pixar tells us to follow our dreams, seize the moment, and regard our family as paramount. These ideals can often be mutually…

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)

After two heralded breezy and finger-snapping editions, the sassy songbirds of the Barden Bellas are back for a supposedly final installment, and sad to say it is not a charm the third time around in the lame, toe-tapping Pitch Perfect 3. In 2012 movie audience giddily fell for the vocalizing vixens of “Pitch Perfect” making…

Movie Review: Pearl Jam: Let’s Play Two (2017)

The unconventional marriage of playoff baseball fever and music artistry go hand-in-hand in Pearl Jam: Let’s Play Two, an excitable and sentimental documentary that chronicles Pearl Jam gleefully situated in the middle of the hysteria surrounding the Chicago Cubs 2016 dream season which saw the team overcome a century-old dry-spell and win the World Series….

Movie Review: Road to Hell (2008)

It’s hard to believe that Road to Hell is Albert Pyun’s 50th movie, and even harder to believe that he still can’t make a decent film. Originally shot in 2008, it’s surely a labor of love for the micro-budget auteur, although I’m not sure how much love it’s likely to receive beyond the initiated. Heavily…
