Reminiscence is a futuristic noir set in a flooded Miami years down the road so let the fact alone serve as a warning because Miami. There may not be any cocaine cowboys in this film but Miami is starting to get the brunt of the damage on screen. Miami’s future is bleak whether it’s an alien attack or a vanishing coastline. It’s a nice break for the likes of Chicago and San Francisco after suffering…"Reminiscence Seeks Nostalgia Because Miami"

Steven Soderbergh is back with the Ed Solomon-scripted No Sudden Move but the lens choices are distracting to watch on a flat screen. On paper, this sounds like a fine film. In terms of execution, there are some rather distracting decisions being made. The lens choices just didn’t work with regards to home viewing. When they moved the dolly in order to follow the movement, it made for some distractions when the picture moved. It…"No Sudden Move: Lens Choices Don’t Work Well"

Oslo, the new film premiering on HBO and streaming on HBO Max, keeps close to its theatrical roots in revisiting the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords. Listen, I’m not going to inject my opinion into this film. We all know how things have and haven’t changed since the accords. The timing is certainly a coincidence. Production was announced in November and dated on the schedule at the end of April. This is not a case of…"Oslo: HBO Movie Keeps Close To Theatrical Roots"
In the Heights is a phenomenal film and the big screen Broadway adaptation is well on its way to joining the great screen classic musicals. Neither Jon M. Chu or Lin-Manuel Miranda are strangers to diverse productions. Chu hit it big with Crazy Rich Asians a few years ago. Miranda, meanwhile, has had no shortage of hits come from his visionary mind. Both In the Heights and Hamilton were hits on the stage. In a…"In the Heights Is A Phenomenal Musical"

Those Who Wish Me Dead is another gripping thriller on one level but it’s also a tale of survival and what we do when we face the odds. The film runs just over an hour and a half but you’re never not on the edge of the seat. It’s thrilling until the very end. I wouldn’t necessarily say that this is a starring vehicle for Angelina Jolie. Jolie might be the first-billed but this film…"Those Who Wish Me Dead: A Tale of Survival"
