They’re 50% black, 50% white. 100% Nerd. Go figure. Left to their own devices and dull lives, not a lot of excitement comes their way. Until that fateful day when a lost and forlorn kitty shows up at the door. Then all hell breaks loose, and Rell (Jordan Peele) and his cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) […]

Nina

NINA

  If you haven’t picked up a copy of I Put a Spell on You: The Autobiography of Nina Simone, now is a good time to read it and let Simone reflect on her life, with her own enlightening words. If you haven’t seen the Oscar-nominated, bio-documentary film What Happened, Miss Simone?, it’s on Netflix […]

The Jungle Book

THE JUNGLE BOOK (Pictured) BAGHEERA and MOWGLI. ©2016 Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Start the great debate right now. Is The Jungle Book the best kid’s action film ever made? Possibly. Expect to hear both sides of that argument waged by millions over lattes at Starbucks after they exit theaters. Performances. Direction. Script. Production Elements. Special effects. They all blend together seamlessly into a visual wonder and an […]

Demolition

DEM_9502.psd

When a loved one dies the normal dynamic is that the friends and family left behind go through a grieving process, each in their own way. The premise of this offbeat, meandering and not so believable movie is centered around what would happen if a wayward soul went on a mourning path that was antisocial, […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

sam_r7_v6_1_150331_06rl_g_r709f.616311.tif

  Director Christopher Nolan, gone. Oscar-winning actor Christian Bale, gone. There will never be another The Dark Knight Rises. That iconic, once-in-a-lifetime action film is over. If you can wrap your head around that, and get past the first sluggish minutes of this Batman derivative, you just may find some instances of wonder in between […]

Born to Be Blue

1A Ethan Hawke and Carmen Ejogo in Born to Be Blue

“I did it my way…” No, Ethan Hawke doesn’t sing those lyrics in this faux bio/film about jazz great Chet Baker. But judging by his thoroughly convincing performance and writer/director Robert Budreau’s impressionistic screenplay and artsy direction, that was their mindset during this movie’s production. Convey the feeling of Baker’s existence, not a blow-by-blow, song-to-song, […]

Eye In The Sky

271A3486.jpg

What is the tolerance level for collateral damage during drone strikes? It’s been a topical subject for years, as the U.S. and other countries fight the war on terrorism from the air and not so much the ground. British screenwriter Guy Hibbert (Prime Suspect) wrote the script for Eye In The Sky in 2008. Years […]

Remember

Remember

There must be a day of reckoning and it can’t be left up to fate. That’s the premise of this extremely inventive geriatric revenge movie, which is the brainchild of casting director turned screenwriter Benjamin August. His ingenious script weaves together senior citizens, Holocaust survivors, onset Alzheimer’s and a trail of death into a drama/mystery/thriller. […]
