Film Reviews

Film Review: “Overlord”

“Overlord” sometimes feels like a version of the Wolfenstein video game, only with slightly better acting. The intensity of the beginning is lost because of predictability and near-campiness of the story. The plot is paper thin with a climax that unfolds like a B-movie. Still, “Overlord” is a bit of a guilty pleasure so get plenty of popcorn.

Film Review: “Widows”

“Widows” is one of the must-see films of the years, for general audiences and cinephiles

Film Review: “The Old Man and the Gun”

Lowery has crafted a wonderful little film that flows smoothly from beginning to end with great acting and solid dialogue.

Film Review: “Museo”

The choice of musical score is a complete disaster as it is loud, brash, and fails to heighten the nonexistent suspense. It plays like a bad, offensive sample of a Hitchcock film. Making matters worse are a series of ill-suited, quasi still shots of the dynamic duo as they rob the museum.

Film Review: “Wildlife”

The performances are smartly delivered, with Gyllenhaal at his most hang-dogged at times and Mulligan her beautiful but unsure self.  The story is told through the eyes of Joe and Oxenbould is fine as the central story point. 

Film Review: “Boy Erased”

I was a huge fan of Edgerton’s previous writing/directing project, 2015’s “The Gift” and he continues to show with his work here that he is one of the most gifted filmmakers working today and one to be reckoned with for many years. 

Film Review: “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch”

While its super sugary goodness may satisfy kids, “The Grinch” will certainly give their parents a toothache

Film Review: “Mid90s”

There’s an inventive subtleness to what Jonah Hill reveals in “Mid90s,” but too often we’re left with more questions than answers

Film Review: “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Full of the music you will fondly remember and featuring one of the most immersive performances by an actor EVER, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a musical masterpiece.

Film Review – “Halloween”

The script is solid, with some nice set-ups inter-spliced with some emotional family moments between Curtis’ Laurie Strode and her estranged daughter and granddaughter.  But you go to these films to see the boogeyman get his comeuppance.  So, what are you waiting for?    

Film Review: “Beautiful Boy”

Despite some heavy-handed technical choices, Beautiful Boy succeeds on the authenticity of Carell and Chalamet’s performances.

Film Review: “Blaze”

“Blaze” is a tragic story, yet if you subtract Dickey from the equation it feels stuck in neutral while cameos by a pair of stars, one a recent Oscar winner, feel contrived and over the top. Overall, it’s a story that could have used a lot tightening up and more cohesivity. Otherwise, Hawke’s effort falls short of his other tragic-musician tale in the form of 2015’s fantastic “Born to Be Blue.”

Film Review: “A Star is Born”

A familiar story with enough new twists and turns to keep it fresh, “A Star Is Born” is a triumph.

Film Review “Malevolence 3: Killer”

Very effective horror film with some great scares, gory kills and solid acting

Film Review: “Night School”

There are chuckles to be had, but not enough, mainly due to the fact that “Night School” is stretched thin by its runtime and lack of comedic imagination

Film Review: “Where Hands Touch”

Cornish delivers a performance that deftly captures a mother’s desperation and Eccleston shines as a father who makes a ghastly decision. Beyond that, the acting is mediocre at best and downright clumsy at worst. It often feels like an overly long, bad stage play, with uninspiring camera work in the beginning despite Asante’s good intentions.

Theater Review: “Chicago” – Kansas City

There are a million reasons to see this show at Starlight.  First off, it’s one of the best outdoor venues in the country.  The shows are usually excellent or, if not, entertaining.  “Chicago” boasts an amazing cast and a top-notch orchestra.  Both Ms. Wright and Ms. Reda (who is from nearby Overland Park, Kansas) are strong dancers with great vocal chops.  My quibble above regarding technical difficulties comes from the fact that, for the first hour of the show, there was an obvious problem with Ms. Wright’s body microphone.  The fact that I could hear her in my seats stems from the fact that she can belt out a song.  Once the problem was fixed both actresses were at the top of their game.
