A professor is in for a shock when he learns that people are seeing him in their dreams and then it becomes a nightmare in Dream Scenario. That’s the gist of the new horror-comedy from writer-director Kristoffer Borgli. The filmmaker also finds a way to use the film as commentary on cancel culture. It’s got a solid mix of comedy and horror as we watch the incredible rise and tragic fall of Osler professor Paul…"Dream Scenario: Nicolas Cage Gets Cancelled"
The global hit Barbie is Kenough for audiences to finally bring home on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD in addition to Digital. I saw the film twice on the big screen. Most recently, I took advantage of the special re-release for IMAX. Unfortunately, the special gag footage was exclusive for the IMAX release. It’s also a shame that they chose against releasing it with the physical media release. It would certainly be a fun…"Barbie is Kenough to Bring Home on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD"
Michael Cera, Hannah Gross, and Sophia Lillis sat down with Solzy at the Movies during the 2023 Tribeca Festival to discuss The Adults. The Adults, which premiered at Berlin earlier this year, was written and directed by Dustin Guy Defa. The film follows Eric (Michael Cera) as he returns home for a brief visit. Going back him means reuniting with his sisters Maggie (Sophia Lillis) and Rachel (Hannah Gross). Eric’s façade of adulthood has been…"The Adults: Michael Cera, Hannah Gross, and Sophia Lillis Discuss Film"
Greta Gerwig continues a brilliant run behind the camera with Barbie while co-writing a hysterical script with Noah Baumbach. Gerwig and Baumbach’s script is funnier than it has any right to be. It’s also full of double entendres but it does have a PG-13 rating for suggestive references and brief language. One would assume that many parents would want to bring their young daughters under 10 but that might not be the best idea. After…"Barbie: Greta Gerwig Continues A Brilliant Run Behind The Camera"
Juno, the rare comedy to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, marks the 15th anniversary of its 2007 theatrical release. Diablo Cody wrote one of the funniest screenplays of 2007. Fifteen years after its release, Juno still holds up as one of the funniest movies released in the early 2000s even as it plays differently in 2022. In terms of casting, it could definitely be better on the diversity front but this is where…"Juno: Witty Comedy Marks 15th Anniversary"
Julianne Moore brings quite the charm to Gloria Bell and this does not even take into account that the film is a remake of the award-winning original. An office worker by day, the divorced Gloria (Julianne Moore) rocks out at Los Angeles clubs during the night. One such night, Gloria ends up meeting Arnold (John Turturro). The two of them manage to bond over the fact that they’re both divorced. Arnold for a year while Gloria…"Gloria Bell: More Roles Like This For Women"
Person to Person is certainly a unique film that has different story lines that don’t quite meet up like I had hoped for. Written and directed by Dustin Guy Defa, the New York-based movie stars Abbi Jacobson, Michael Cera, Tavi Gevinson, Michaela Watkins, Philip Baker Hall, Bene Coopersmith, George Sample III, Ben Rosenfield, Olivia Luccardi, and Isiah Whitlock. It’s a short film with a running time of only 84 minutes but there is so much…"Person to Person unique but doesn’t intersect"
