Movie Review: READY OR NOT

READY OR NOT movie poster | ©2019 Fox Searchlight

Rating: R Stars: Samara Weaving, Adam Brody, Michael O’Brien, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell, Melanie Scrofano, Kristian Bruun, Nicky Guadagni, Elyse Levesque, John Ralston Writers: Guy Busick and Ryan Murphy Directors: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett Distributor: Fox Searchlight Release Date: August 21, 2019 READY OR NOT is at heart a riff on THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME. Unlike the abruptly pulled-from-release THE HUNT, though, it’s unlikely anybody is going to worry about READY OR NOT making some kind of political statement. Well, okay, the statement that kids generally accept whatever their families do as normal is arguably political, but most people […]Read On »

Daughter Angel’s (Indya Moore) modeling career takes off, as has her romance with Lil Papi (Angel Bismark Curiel), so both have moved out. Son Damon’s (Ryan Jamaal Swain) work as a professional dancer has taken him to Europe. Meanwhile, Blanca’s hard-won nail salon business has been burned […]Read On »

In Part 2 of our exclusive interview with actor/director Kevin Alejandro, he talks more about his work on Netflix’s LUCIFER as LAPD detective Daniel Espinosa, what he’s learned from real-life police officers, and his directing work on both the series and his award-winning short film BEDTIME STORY. ASSIGNMENT X: A lot of your characters are people in law enforcement. I mean, you did LUCIFER and you did SOUTHLAND for a couple of seasons, and you’ve played police detectives in other things. Do you think there’s something about you that makes people go, “Aha, police detective”? KEVIN ALEJANDRO: I think so. […]Read On »

Movie Review: GOOD BOYS

Rating: R Stars: Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon, Midori Francis, Izaac Wang, Millie Davis, Josh Caras, Will Forte, Mariessa Portelance, Lil Rel Howery, Retta\ Writers: Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky Director: Gene Stupnitsky Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: August 16, 2019 GOOD BOYS is an odd coming-of-age comedy. The oddness springs not from originality, although it has some, but rather because it’s not clear exactly who the target audience is. The protagonists are three best friends and newly-minted sixth-graders, Max (Jacob Tremblay), Lucas (Keith L. Williams), and Thor (Brady Noon). When Max is invited to a […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sophie Nelisse, Corinne Foxx, Sistine Rose Stallone, Brianne Tju, John Corbett, Nia Long, Davi Santos Writer: Johannes Roberts Director: Johannes Roberts Distributor: Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: August 16, 2019 47 METERS DOWN: UNCAGED is a follow-up to 2017’s shark horror movie 47 METERS DOWN. Although it is written and directed by the earlier film’s director/co-writer Johannes Roberts, 47 METERS DOWNL UNCAGED is not actually a sequel, as it shares neither the characters nor the storyline of its predecessor. Instead, 47 METERS DOWN: UNCAGED is a companion piece that can be viewed before, after, or completely […]Read On »

Movie Review: DRIVEN

Rating: R Stars: Jason Sudeikis, Lee Pace, Judy Greer, Corey Stoll, Michael Cudlitz, Erin Moriarty, Isabel Arraiza Writer: Colin Bateman Director: Nick Hamm Distributor: Universal Release Date (theatrical and on demand): August 16, 2019 DRIVEN is a mixture of character study, thriller and black comedy. Screenwriter Colin Bateman and director Nick Hamm take facts that are part of the public record and use them to weave a tall but compelling tale about John DeLorean, mostly from the point of view of Jim Hoffman. Car maker DeLorean, who passed away in 2005, would likely be pleased that he’s still primarily remembered […]Read On »

Fox’s Wednesday-night miniseries BH90210 is not precisely a reboot of that network’s BEVERLY HILLS 90210/90210, which ran from 1990 through 2000. Instead, BH90210 features seven of the original series’ stars – Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Greene, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, and Ian Ziering, all executive producers on the new show – as versions of themselves trying to get a remake of 90210 off the ground. Garth and Spelling spearheaded the move to get BH90210 going, but most of their colleagues enthusiastically came aboard. Holdout Doherty changed her mind and signed on after the unexpected death of […]Read On »
