Netflix has a new number of new movies for everyone their 2023 Fall Movie Slate, whether its documentary, comedy, drama, or animation. Having seen The Saint of Second Chances during Tribeca this past summer, it’s a baseball documentary that I highly recommend. Co-directors Morgan Neville and Jeff Malmberg really hit it out of the ballpark as audiences get an inside look at the Veeck baseball family. Jeff Daniels narrates the film while Charlie Day portrays…"Netflix: 2023 Fall Movie Slate"
The third episode of Ahsoka continues a trend that dates back to The Mandalorian with the series having inconsistent run times. Three episodes into the series and this episode doesn’t even reach 40 minutes in length. Factor in the recap, end titles and credits and the episode barely runs a half hour long, if at all. It’s an unfortunate trend in the franchise at the moment. While the episode features some good action sequences, I…"Ahsoka: Part III – Time to Fly"
While I was looking forward to initially watching The Equalizer 3, Sony Pictures has decided not to screen for film press beyond NY and LA. The review embargo lifted this morning. Unfortunately, I did not rush home from a screening to write a review for publication. This is because I’m not one of the select press living in NY or LA. Losing out on a franchise film hurts especially at a time when films are…"The Equalizer 3: Sony Only Screened For NY/LA Press"
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny–the fifth and final installment of the iconic franchise–is now available through digital retailers. A physical media release is still forthcoming. My original review from this past June: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is an action-packed farewell to the iconic Harrison Ford character and an absolute blast of a time. There’s a universe where this isn’t just the farewell to Indiana Jones as a character but the…"Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny Arrives on Digital"

Happy Gilmore–the first team-up between director Dennis Dugan and star Adam Sandler–is one of the better Sandler comedies. “The price is wrong, bitch!” – Happy Gilmore (Adam Sandler) to Bob Barker I meant to watch the film for its 25th anniversary but because of Covid and everything, I didn’t get around to doing so. It’s unfortunate, in this case, that I’m only watching it in tribute to the late Bob Barker. Barker, the former host…"Happy Gilmore: The Price is Wrong!"

You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah–starring Adam Sandler and the rest of the Sandler family–is unapologetically Jewish. Adam Sandler films can be family affairs but usually he’s starring in the films while wife Jackie and daughters Sadie and Sunny make cameo appearances. This time around, Jackie has a minor role while Sadie and Sunny are front and center. Let me tell you, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Have…"You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah is Unapologetically Jewish"
