Danny Boyle’s Yesterday may be inspired by a world without The Beatles but unfortunately, the film loses its focus somewhere on the long and winding road. Imagine a world where The Beatles never came into existence. This is what screenwriter Richard Curtis asks in a crowd-pleasing screenplay. Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) was about to give up his dreams as a singer-songwriter. Best friend Ellie (Lily James) shows support for Jack but it isn’t enough. For…"Chicago Critics 2019: Yesterday"
Family may have its moments but there’s no reason why this star-studded comedy doesn’t work any better than it absolutely should. Kate Stone (Taylor Schilling) is the career-oriented woman working for a hedge fund in New Jersey. She’s firm in her beliefs. One could say that this is how she climbed the corporate ladder to be senior vice president. Kate goes as far as to tell new employee Erin (Jessie Ennis) to not make friends…"Family has its moments, falls a bit flat"

The genre-bending action comedy, The Spy Who Dumped Me, allows for Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon to take it to the next level. The film’s cold open sets the tone, introducing us to Audrey (Mila Kunis) and Morgan (Kate McKinnon) on the former’s birthday in Los Angeles while Drew (Justin Theroux) fights for his life in Vilnius. In addition to the cuts between the two, there’s the requisite flashbacks introducing us to their meet-cute. This also serves…"The Spy Who Dumped Me is Kick-Ass Fun"
Starring four of the funniest women on earth, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call honors the spirit of the 1984 classic film. While it would have been nice to have seen the likes of Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, and Winston Zeddemore pass the baton to a new generation, Harold Ramis’ death in 2014 would forever change the face of the franchise. Never mind just how hard it is getting Bill Murray to sign on board for anything. With that out…"Ghostbusters: Answer the Call"

Dan Aykroyd broke the news on Sunday morning that there will not be a sequel to the Ghostbusters reboot. Aykroyd made the announcement during an appearance on Sunday Brunch on Britain’s Channel 4.
