    Vivo

    ★★★★

    Anybody who knows me on a personal level when it comes to films knows I’m not a fan of musicals. Safe to say that the people at Sony Animation Studios and Lin-Manuel Miranda have broken through my barrier and impressed me immensely. Vivo’s best elements comes through its message. Giving people their flowers while they are still alive and telling the people we care/admire that we love them while they are here breathing and living is important. Tomorrow isn’t promised…

  • Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★

    Unmistakable charm and a adventure that doesn’t need to go dark or take itself so seriously; feels close to the appeal of a theme park ride in joy and exuberance. The Rock and Blunt trade wisecracks on a boat along the Amazon River showing a willingness to let it all go and enjoy the environment. There is an element of characterization drama that adds deep clarity to each of their roles. Blunt’s character is full of adventure who also carries…

    Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two

    ★★★

    More slow burn than Part 1. The first half seems to takes its sweet time before unveiling a fireworks display of drama and action to cap things off. The theme of people leading a double life stands prominent among the mystery of who is the Holliday killer. The exploits of Two Face, the shady history of Batman’s parents and their dealings with The Roman, and the surprising revelation of who is behind the Holliday killings all deal with characters who…

    Freaky

    ★★★

    Freaky Friday in the vision of Blumhouse horror. Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton do a good job of being able to perform a personality switch and physically put a lot of effort into their respective personas. The film doesn’t have a chance of working without them being on a level of competent effectiveness. Would have been easy for Vaughn to go full on extravagant without limits with the personality of a high school chick but the balance is well established. Newton does…

    Joker

    ★★★★★

    Joker is a shake up to the comic book genre that will reverberate and makes its impact felt for the foreseeable future. Holds up a grim and disturbing microscope to the current divided state of unrest that is infecting our present day. Todd Phillps is not asking you to be sympathetic for the Clown Prince of Crime; he shows us the ramifications of a broken society on the invisible and less fortunate who need than just medications to feel something…

    Antebellum

    Hollywood needs to go to rehab to cure the addiction of cranking out simple minded films about slavery. Disturbing to find that “trauma porn” is beginning to become more mainstream as every year we find a new film that wants to revisit the horrific system of slavery. Anyone with a sense of history knows about the usual cycle of African Americans  being branded, beaten, shot, stabbed, raped, tortured, and exploited throughout history. Frankly from my view of things, enough with…
