Dolittle Movie Review

Fast forward to 2020 and you now have the latest film attempt to capture some of that magic. It’s loosely based on Lofting’s second book, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle that was originally published way back in 1922. It gives lead actor Robert Downey Jr a chance to break out of the MCU and franchise straitjacket for well, another franchise.   //   Downey is his usual charismatic self and it’s a good thing as the film doesn’t aim very high. It’s a contented work ...

Check out the new trailer for Last Christmas!

Kate (Emilia Clarke) harumphs around London, a bundle of bad decisions accompanied by the jangle of bells on her shoes, another irritating consequence from her job as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop.

Late Night Movie Review

Set in the world of host driven late night television shows, it uses some of the inherent hypocrisy of the genre as its foundation. It builds something from this base that is equal parts comedy and social commentary. It makes statements but is far from preachy.   //   Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is the much heralded and old school host who has lost touch with her audience and in some ways herself. She answers accusations of being anti female in her writing staff ...

Men in Black: International Movie Review

Director F. Gary Gray (The Fate of the Furious and Straight Outta Compton) shows that he can still handle a special effects driven project and keep the human elements appealing. Even the CGI characters are giving substantial personalities, especially Kumail Nanjiani as Pawny. He is used to great comic effects.   //   The storyline is rather simplistic but is given a bit of depth by the origin story of Agent M (Thompson). There are the usual super cool gadgets and weapons ...
