If the exact same movie had been made by anyone except director/co-writer (with Tony Kushner) Steven Spielberg, would it be received in anything like the same way? But then, could anyone except Spielberg have made anything […]Read On »

Movie Review: COME PLAY

COME PLAY movie poster | ©2020 Focus Features

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Azhy Robertson, Gillian Jacobs, John Gallagher Jr. Writer: Jacob Chase Director: Jacob Chase Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: October 30, 2020 COME PLAY is produced by Amblin. This isn’t too surprising, as COME PLAY feels like something Amblin founder Steven Spielberg might have made in his younger years. COME PLAY also feels like a less scary riff on THE BABADOOK. As with that 2014 traumatizer, we have the elements of a special-needs young boy – here, Oliver, played by Azhy Robertson – and a creepy illustrated storybook. Instead of being pop-up, the text and pictures show up […]Read On »

However, for those who felt 2017 was the epitome of an absurdist political nightmare, THE POST may bring perfect holiday cheer. While Watergate ultimately got the bigger press – think ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN (which this […]Read On »
