Movie Review: Thunder Force (2021)

Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone are back, six months after the release of their last (and worst) film, “Superintelligence.” Their latest work, Thunder Force, is a superhero comedy telling the story of best friends Lydia (McCarthy, “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Emily (Octavia Spencer, “The Shape of Water”), who become the superhero duo known…

Movie Review: Senior Moment (2021)

William Shatner, who in real life recently turned 90, should be commended for playing the lead in any feature film. That said, Senior Moment, a bit of cinematic fluff directed by Giorgio Serafini, is not the best vehicle for him to show off his acting chops. The script is not developed sufficiently for him or…

Movie Review: Bad Trip (2021)

2021 has been an incredible year for absurdist comedies that push the boundaries of socially acceptable humor to the extremes. Josh Greenbaum’s “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar” is still the funniest (and best) film of the year (so far), but there’s a new competitor in town that dares to go back to…

Movie Review: Wrong Turn (2021)

2003’s “Wrong Turn” spawned a surprising franchise. Five sequels and this 2021 reboot demonstrate that screenwriter Alan B.

After six films in the original continuity, a reboot seems timely and could continue to capitalize on the potential of city people encountering…

Movie Review: Another Round (2020)

“The real voyage of discovery lies in not seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes” — Marcel Proust Taking risks and taking responsibility can be two sides of the same coin but never seem to mesh in Thomas Vinterberg’s (“Far from the Madding Crowd”) comedy-drama Another Round, Denmark’s submission for Best Foreign Film at…

Movie Review: Tell Me I Love You (2020)

Fiona MacKenzie’s Tell Me I Love You is a romantic comedy about three best friends who make music together. Ben (Sam Clark, “A Deadly Dance”), Ally (Paulina Cerrilla, “$elfie Shootout”) and Melanie (Kaniehtiio Horn, “Death Wish”) also live in the same house, though this is temporary. What they require to complete their demo is time…

Movie Review: The Jesus Rolls (2019)

If Joel and Ethan Coen’s “The Big Lebowski” is a stoner neo-noir comedy based on a misidentification, then John Turturro’s sort of spin-off The Jesus Rolls is a road movie based on a lack of destination. Not that any comparison between the two films is fair because they are very different. “The Big Lebowski” takes…
