Irresistible Arrives On Blu-Ray

Irresistible, which takes everything we love and hate about politics at the national level while focusing on local elections, is now available on Blu-ray and DVD. In this well-meaning comedy, writer/director Jon Stewart, former host of The Daily Show, reteams with former correspondent Steve Carell.  Stewart is no stranger to politics so it comes as no surprise that he’s made a satire on the subject.  This is the type of film that hits it on…

X-Men: Apocalypse – The Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Apocalypse may not be the satisfying third film in the series that one would like but it certainly does the job here. After being teased during a post-credits scene, we meet En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac) aka Apocalypse just before the transference.  The next thing we know, it’s 1983 and Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) awakens the sleeping mutant.  This also launches an earthquake felt across the globe.  At the same time, Mystique frees Kurt…

X-Men: First Class – The Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: First Class does a solid job in taking things back to where it all begin when both Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr meet for the first time. A brief prologue lays the beginning foundations for Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender), Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), and Raven Darkhölme (Jennifer Lawrence).  I like that director Matthew Vaughn opts for a shot-for-shot recreation of the X-Men opening.  It’s a brilliant way to tie the new series into the…

Instant Family: Heartwarming and Inspiring

Both heartwarming and inspiring, Instant Family is a family comedy that displays the importance that comes with being a foster parent. When one learns about Sean Anders’ history as a father, Instant Family comes off as a passion project.  It’s quite a different film than Daddy’s Home despite the casting of Mark Wahlberg.  This is their third film together and much better than the last one released a year ago.  It’s Anders’ most personal film…

Peter Rabbit: Domhnall Gleeson is a riot but film falls short

After so many author biopics in 2017, Peter Rabbit may seem like a breath of fresh air with bringing the children’s story to the big screen.  It’s been over a decade since 2006 saw the release of the Renee Zellweger-starring Miss Potter.  At the same time, there are so many comic gags in the film that it is over-bloated on that front.  Filmmakers are clearly targeting the kids more so than their parents when it…
