Roland Emmerich’s 2009 sci-fi disaster thriller, 2012, offers thrills and destruction at the end of the world with amazing visuals to boot. We follow the film through the lens of two different characters, geologist Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and novelist Jackson Curtis (John Cusack). On a trip to India in 2009, Adrian learns that neutrinos are heating up the Earth’s core. This information is quickly presented to White House Chief of Staff Carl Anheuser (Oliver…"2012: Disaster Thriller Is Our Worst Nightmare"
The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window is the event murder mystery thriller to kick of the new year. Please make sure to set aside four hours before you press play. You need to set aside 196 minutes for this satirical limited series. Seriously. It’ll be over before you know it! This series was made for binge-watching, which is what I did back on January 9. In a…"The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window"
Holky: The Steven Holcomb Story is a new documentary short that profiles the late Olympic medalist, bobsledder Steven Holcomb. If you know me, you know I have a love of bobsledding going back to the classic Disney film, Cool Runnings. Prior to the start of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, I made my way over to the Utah Olympic Park in Park City to check out the museum and take a tour. For me, one…"Holky: The Steven Holcomb Story"
Launching on January 28 with its first three episodes, The Afterparty is one of the best new comedy series to arrive this year. My interest is automatically piqued whenever I hear that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are attached to a new project. Knowing their previous work, it also comes with an incredibly high bar of expectations. This comedy series is no exception especially with the talented cast. What I love about it isn’t just…"The Afterparty: One Of The Best New Comedy Series"
The Beatles do it themselves in their 1967 made-for-TV film, Magical Mystery Tour, which celebrates its 55th anniversary later this year. The BBC committed the terrible sin of first airing this film in black-and-white in December 1967. They would rectify this by airing a color version shortly thereafter. But by then, it was too late because they damage had been done. Here’s the thing about Magical Mystery Tour: it isn’t a film in the same…"Magical Mystery Tour: The Beatles Do It Themselves"
Aftershock is among the most heartbreaking documentaries that any audience will watch when the film is eventually released. The U.S. maternal health system is in a crisis. Perhaps you’ve heard of it and perhaps you did not. In any event, this documentary brings the crisis directly to you for the better part of almost 90 minutes. It’s unfortunate because the United States is among the most industrialized nations in the world. We should not have…"Aftershock – Sundance 2022"
892 is just further proof that America as a whole needs to do better when it comes to its veterans after their service career is over. An American veteran and father, Brian Brown-Easley (John Boyega), is waiting to receive his latest disability check from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Because he owes money somehow, they never bother sending out a check and it only gets worse from here on out. Not receiving the check is…"892 – Sundance 2022"
Cooper Raiff follows up his SXSW award-winning Shithouse with Cha Cha Real Smooth, a film set on the Bar and Bat Mitzvah circuit. My worst fear going into this film was that Dakota Johnson would be the latest non-Jewish actress starring as a Jewish woman. This turns out to not be the case, thank G-d. Because of this, we do not have to have that conversation all over again. Similarly, Raiff is not Jewish but…"Cha Cha Real Smooth – Sundance 2022"
Alice is inspired by true accounts and has Quentin Tarantino-esque vibes once it gets into the Blaxploitation part of the film. I needed to sleep on this one. It’s been over twelve hours since pressing play and I’m still not sure what to think. When it comes to Sundance premieres that touch on slavery, Descendant is the better of the two offerings. The gist of the film is that Alice (Keke Palmer) is an enslaved…"Alice – Sundance 2022"
