The Secret Life of Pets 2 improves upon the first film in every conceivable way in my opinion, unleashing a trio of beguiling little stories that kids of all ages are almost certain to find enjoyable.
Batman is a great superhero film that features outstanding direction from Tim Burton and superlative performances from Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton. While certainly a product of its era, the film has still withstood the test of time marvelously.
A few weeks back I promised I’d revisit and repost this list of 50 favorites covering the first decade of the 21st century. Starting today, and over the next few Sundays, that is exactly what it I intend to do.
I thoroughly enjoyed director Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It made me smile.
Fletcher is channeling All That Jazz and Absolute Beginners but with a Hairspray meets Mamma Mia! high-gloss glittery shimmer, the grit and angst of the tortured artist juxtaposed against a Technicolor milieu that’s been art directed and costumed within an inch of its rockabilly heart.
While lacking in the same kind of ingenious magic that helped allow the original to stand the test of time, this new Aladdin still has a few winning tricks up its sleeve making it worthy of a look.
Photograph is a beautiful snapshot of romantic longing and human understanding that’s nothing less than glorious, watching it a rapturously intimate pleasure I didn’t want to end.
Booksmart is one of the best movies of 2019.
This movie is just a heck of a lot of fun to watch. It’s very entertaining. While the director’s cut that is also included here doesn’t really change anything substantive (the running time for both versions is identical), it is interesting from the standpoint of seeing some of the minor tweaks that had to be made for the film to receive a PG-13 rating.
