Netflix’s Moxie Review: Amy Poehler’s Progressive Coming Of Age Movie Is Sweet But Familiar

Netflix’s Moxie Review: Amy Poehler’s Progressive Coming Of Age Movie Is Sweet But Familiar
Moxie trips up with a large supporting cast with a number of thin characters. That depth isn’t universally present in the supporting cast, however, and that extends to both the primary antagonistic forces, and Vivian’s newfound friends in revolution. Both Marcia Gay Harden’s turn-a-blind-eye principal...

Disney+’s Raya And The Last Dragon Review: A Brand New Disney Masterpiece

Disney+'s Raya And The Last Dragon Review: A Brand New Disney Masterpiece
Whether watched on the big screen, or streaming in one's living room, Raya and the Last Dragon simply needs to be seen. Period.

Apple TV+’s Cherry Review: A Grounded, Somber Tour-De-Force For Tom Holland

Apple TV+'s Cherry Review: A Grounded, Somber Tour-De-Force For Tom Holland
There’s a LOT of movie in Cherry. Almost too much movie. In an effort to help make each chapter or segment stand apart from the others, the Russos brothers almost treat those moments in Cherry as experiments in separate genres, so while Cherry feels cohesive,...

Hulu’s The United States Vs. Billie Holiday Review: A Scattered Biopic That Hangs On A Great Lead Performance

Hulu’s The United States Vs. Billie Holiday Review: A Scattered Biopic That Hangs On A Great Lead Performance
The United States vs. Billie Holiday winds up being all over the place trying to capture every narrative thread. On paper that plot description may seem straight forward, but that’s because it is a massively streamlined version of what the movie is. Amidst the controversy...

Disney+’s Flora And Ulysses Review: An Adorable And Feel-Good Movie For The Whole Family

Disney+’s Flora And Ulysses Review: An Adorable And Feel-Good Movie For The Whole Family
The charming cast is Flora and Ulysses’ secret weapon. Ulysses is an adorable squirrel throughout the film, but the element that will win you over is the cast. How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan plays at being an awkward and downbeat mother, whilst Ben...

Netflix’s I Care A Lot Review: This Movie Is Totally Evil, And I Love It

Netflix’s I Care A Lot Review: This Movie Is Totally Evil, And I Love It
I Care A Lot operates in daylight, and it’s both beautiful and clever. Things clearly get dark in I Care A Lot, but part of what makes the film feel particularly cold and harsh is how bright it is. Marla’s nefarious operation is not one...

Netflix’s To All The Boys: Always And Forever Review: A Syrupy-Sweet Finale To Lara Jean And Peter Kavinsky’s Young Love Story

Netflix’s To All The Boys: Always And Forever Review: A Syrupy-Sweet Finale To Lara Jean And Peter Kavinsky’s Young Love Story
Always and Forever should be applauded for kicking the excess teen drama to the curb, and just telling a sincere-yet-sugary story about falling in love in high school.

Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar Review: A Comedy So Absurd And Hilarious It Will Leave You Breathless With Tears In Your Eyes

Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar Review: A Comedy So Absurd And Hilarious It Will Leave You Breathless With Tears In Your Eyes
Jamie Dornanis Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar’s greatest and most sidesplitting surprise. Given Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo’s backgrounds, it’s not exactly a shock that they are so funny – but the same sentiment can’t be shared for Jamie Dornan, who comes...

Amazon’s The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things Review: Yes, There’s Already Another Good Time Loop Movie

Amazon’s The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things Review: Yes, There’s Already Another Good Time Loop Movie
It’s hard to look away from Kyle Allen And Kathryn Newton’s offbeat chemistry. The Map of Tiny Perfect Things works in a lot of ways thanks to getting the casting its two leads. Kyle Allen, who hasn't played a leading role before this, really anchors...
