Charlotte – Toronto 2021

Charlotte may be a beautifully animated film but given the setting before and during the Holocaust, this film is emotionally intense. Please stay through the end of the credits. Charlotte Salomon (Keira Knightley in English, Marion Cotillard in French) is a German-Jewish artist with the unfortunate luck of growing up during World War II. Referred to as Lotte by her father and step-mother, she grew up in Berlin with dreams of being an artist. Against…

Cruella: Emma Stone-Led Prequel Is Disney’s Joker

Cruella, a prequel that absolutely nobody asked for, is the Disney version of 2019’s stand-alone Joker as the film seeks to humanify the villain. This film runs 134 minutes. Ahead of the press screening, I decided to rewatch both 101 Dalmatians and 102 Dalmatians. These two films were among Disney’s first foray into live-action adaptations of their animated films. Maybe it was a sign of things to come but in this particular instance, neither film is…

Shazam arrives on Blu-ray, DVD

Shazam! arrives onto Blu-ray and DVD today a few months after the Zachary Levi-starring DC installment was released into theaters. The critically acclaimed film did over three times its budget at the box office.  After a few failures for DC, they were in need of its.  I think what makes this particular film work so well is the studio went outside the box.  This character certainly isn’t the first that people usually think of when…

The Catcher Was A Spy: Baseball and Espionage

The Catcher Was A Spy is a period film that combines baseball, espionage, and war. The film plays more as a drama than a thriller. Espionage films usually mean people kicking ass, but it’s not what happens in The Catcher Was A Spy, unless you’re referring to one’s intellect. Pardon the pun but it’s a nice curveball for the genre. One should not expect to get a James Bond movie even though Bond is what…
