Movie Review: HAPPY DEATH DAY

HAPPY DEATH DAY movie poster | ©2017 Universal Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, Phi Vu, Rob Mello, Cariella Smith, Caleb Spillyards Writer: Scott Lobdell Director: Christopher Landon Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 13, 2017  GROUNDHOG DAY isn’t the only tale of someone stuck reliving the same day over and over, but it’s perhaps the best-known in pop culture. Also, it’s the one that gets eventually name-checked in HAPPY DEATH DAY, so it seems appropriate to use that 1993 comedy as a reference point. HAPPY DEATH DAY has, as its basic premise, GROUNDHOG DAY redone as a PG-13 college-set […]Read On »

MARSHALL movie poster | ©2017 Open Road

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell Writers: Jacob Koskoff & Michael Koskoff Director: Reginald Hudlin Distributor: Open Road Release Date: October 13, 2017 Going into MARSHALL, knowing only that it stars Chadwick Boseman as legal legend Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American justice to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, one can be forgiven for supposing it’s a biopic. In fact, MARSHALL is based on a very small slice of biography. Set in 1940, when Marshall was the top lawyer for the N.A.A.C.P., the film turns out to be a mixture […]Read On »

Movie Review: AMERICAN MADE

Rating: R Stars: Tom Cruise, Domnhall Gleeson, Sarah Wright Olsen, Jesse Plemons, Caleb Landry Jones, Alejandro Edda, Fredy Yate Escobar, Mauricio Mejia Writer: Gary Spinelli Director: Doug Liman Distributor: Universal Release Date: September 29, 2017 AMERICAN MADE feels a little like a fever dream, especially for those who have been watching both the documentary THE VIETNAM WAR and the fact-based drama NARCOS. AMERICAN MADE certainly stands on its own, but it is set temporally between the events covered in those other two projects, and there is a feeling of cause and effect flow from one to the other.

The television series adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s GET SHORTY is in its first season (and renewed for a second) Sunday nights on Epix. Chris O’Dowd plays small-time gangster Miles Daly, anxious to win back his wife and young daughter (aka “Shorty”). When a quality movie script, THE ADMIRAL’S MISTRESS, falls into his hands, Miles thinks this may be his ticket to stability. Down-on-his luck producer Rick (Ray Romano) doesn’t realize what he’s taking on when he gets into business with Miles. Megan Stevenson’s character, studio executive April Quinn, doesn’t know about Miles’ shady life either, though she gets an inkling […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Ayicia Debnam-Carey, William Moseley, Connor Paolo, Brit Morgan, Brooke Markham, Sean Marquette, Liesl Ahlers, Shashawnee Hall, Nicholas Pauling Writers: Matthew Ballen & Phillip Koch & Simon Verhoeven Director: Simon Verhoeven Distributor: Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures Release Date: September 22, 2017 Not to be confused with 2015’s UNFRIENDED, the new movie FRIEND REQUEST is a tale of quasi-online horror. It has one idea about characterization that’s so good that it somewhat excuses lapses in logic. Directed by Simon Verhoeven from a screenplay he wrote with Matthew Ballen & Phillip Koch, FRIEND REQUEST begins with a college classroom announcement […]Read On »

Stars: Vanessa Lachey, Nikki Bella, Frankie Muniz, Terrell Owens, Derek Fisher, Sasha Pieterse, Jordan Fisher, Debbie Gibson, Victoria Arlen, Barbara Corcoran, Nick Lachey, Drew Scott, Lindsey Stirling Network: ABC, airs Monday Original Telecast: September 18th, 2017 DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 25 began with a full cast of 13 couples which is great except it doesn’t give the judges much time to critique. DWTS‘ solution was to have only one judge speak to the couples before their scores. This landed with a big dull thud in the ballroom because one of the best parts of the show is seeing the […]Read On »
