Rating: R Stars: John Boyega, Algee Smith, Will Poulter, Anthony Mackie, Jason Mitchell, Jacob Lattimore, Hannah Murray, Kaitlyn Dever Writer: Mark Boal Director: Kathryn Bigelow Distributor: Annapurna Pictures Release Date: July 28, 2017 DETROIT for much of its running time plays as a fact-based horror movie. Although it is set against the backdrop of the conflagration that occurred in the title city during July 1967, DETROIT is actually about one specific incident. At least in the film, written by Mark Boal and directed by Kathryn Bigelow (the same team from THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY), the initial breaking […]Read On »

Director David Leitch, who comes from a stunt background and did some sequences on JOHN WICK (and is scheduled to do DEADPOOL 2) knows how to make his actors, his settings, his colors and his shapes all breathtaking from one shot to the next. There […]Read On »

In THE HANDMAID’S TALE, now streaming its first ten-episode season on Hulu and renewed for a second, marriages have become very complicated. Based on the novel by Margaret Atwood and developed for Hulu by Bruce Miller, THE HANDMAID’S TALE tells of a near-future when women are completely subjugated. None are allowed to read or write. Because much of humanity is no longer able to reproduce, fertile women are forced to be handmaids, who bear children for powerful married couples. Yvonne Strahovski plays Serena Joy Waterford, wife of Commander Waterford (played by Joseph Fiennes). She has more freedom than most other […]Read On »

CHIPS highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for June 27, 2017

CHIPS | © 2017 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. CHiPS When I saw the original trailer for the CHiPS movie I thought it looked OK and it might have some funny moments but I thought about how many people actually will get the actual references to the classic television show. There’s an entire generation that has no clue about Ponch and Jon. So it already had some issues with people knowing what this was about. It showed as it didn’t perform well in the theaters. In the movie version, Ponch is an undercover federal agent investigating […]Read On »

Movie Review: DESPICABLE ME 3

Rating: PG Stars (voices): Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker Writers: Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio Directors: Kyle Balda & Pierre Coffin, co-director, Eric Guillon Distributor: Universal Release Date: June 30, 2017  In DESPICABLE ME 3, there’s a moment when Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) mutters, “I miss the Minions.” Well, yes. So likely will most of the audience. Although the little yellow hench-beings are heavily promoted in the DESPICABLE ME 3 trailers, they are largely missing from this third entry in the animated series. In the original 2010 DESPICABLE ME, Gru was a professional super-villain, supported by his mad […]Read On »

Movie Review: BABY DRIVER

BABY DRIVER movie poster | ©2017 Sony/TriStar

Rating: R Stars: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Jamie Foxx, CJ Jones, Jon Bernthal Writer: Edgar Wright Director: Edgar Wright Distributor: Sony/TriStar Release Date: June 28, 2017 BABY DRIVER has pretty much wall-to-wall music, and almost that much action to go with it. The tale of a very talented, reluctant young driver (Ansel Elgort) working for a crime boss, BABY DRIVER plays like a friendlier version of a Quentin Tarantino movie with more car chases and fewer words. The driver, who calls himself Baby, almost immediately gets a chance to show his stuff, chauffeuring three […]Read On »
