Rating: PG Stars: David Oyelowo, Rosario Dawson, Lonnie Chavis, Amiah Miller, Alfred Molina, Maria Bello Writer: Emma Needell Director: David Oyelowo Distributor: RLJE Films Release Date: May 7, 2021 THE WATER MAN is one of those family films that may actually play better for adults. (This reviewer, at least, can appreciate this sort of storytelling better now than in childhood.) The Boone family has recently moved to the small, scenic town of Pine Mills in Cascade County, Oregon. Preteen Gunner (Lonnie Chavis) has yet to make friends his own age, but he’s busy writing and drawing a graphic novel about […]Read On »

BOSS BABY | © 2017 Fox Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week.

BOSS BABY may not be as influential as these other films or long lasting but kids will still find enjoyment in the story of a place where babies come from and there are […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Rosario Dawson, Katherine Heigl, Geoff Stults, Isabella Kai Rice, Cheryl Ladd, Sarah Burns, Whitney Cummings, Simon Kassianides, Robert Ray Wisdom Writer: Christina Hodson Director: Denise Di Novi Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: April 21, 2017 There are a few ripped-from-the-headlines aspects to UNFORGETTABLE, but to be specific would perhaps be too spoilery. Suffice to say that certain types of cyber-revenge make Christina Hodson’s screenplay plausible in its broad strokes. With different treatment, the subject matter could have been stomach-churning horror. However, under Denise Di Novi’s direction (the veteran producer’s feature directorial debut), UNFORGETTABLE is one of those […]Read On »
