The Kitchen Isn’t The Feminist Thriller We Need

The Kitchen is about a trio of wives who take over protecting the neighborhood while their husbands are serving time in jail. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Andrea Berloff adapts Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle’s comic book series for the big screen.  I really wish that I could say that The Kitchen is a good film but it fails along the way.  The whole women-take-revenge plot was done so much better in Steve McQueen’s criminally underrated Widows.  Where…

First Man: Now Available on 4K/Blu-ray/DVD

Telling the story of Neil Armstrong and the mission to the moon, First Man is an intense ride and an IMAX screen should be considered required viewing.  Saying that this film is an underappreciated masterpiece would not be an understatement. Starring as astronaut Neil Armstrong, veteran actor Ryan Gosling captures the very essence of his persona.  Armstrong lived with a public profile but he was very much a private person.  He saw this as just…

TIFF 2018: First Man is Intense, IMAX required

Telling the story of Neil Armstrong and the mission to the moon, First Man is an intense ride and an IMAX screen should be considered required viewing.

Tribeca 2018: Song of Back and Neck

Song of Back and Neck, the feature debut for Paul Lieberstein, tackles both romance and pain. Fred Trolleycar (Paul Lieberstein) has somehow managed to be cursed with the worst combination of back and neck pain of all time.  It’s what Dr. Street (Paul Feig) describes as “the trifecta of back and neck pain.”  It’s so bad that the paralegal is able to get ready for work by crawling on the floor.  Fred is a 25-year…
