MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
The Oscars are this weekend, and the list of new movies in wide release is small.  But this could be a hit.   Harley Quinn:Birds Of Prey Here comes Margot Robbie and a nice supporting cast in this action flick, that has a lot of people excited, as Harley Quinn comes to the screen in her own flick. There has been a ton of TV ads for this, and if history is our guide, many…

MOVIE PREVIEW - New This Week!

Written by
Gretel And Hansel OK, it's the story you sort of know, but this is certainly not your old fashioned fairy tale.   This is a grim view of the ancient story that is not for the faint of heart as you watch the preview here.  Clearly, this is not going to be for everyone, and you might think about leaving Great Nana at home, but the trailer has been seen by about 24 million, so there…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

The Gentleman This has a big cast and has the look on the surface of The Kingsman series from a couple years ago. This would appear to have John Wick-like violence, and the decency of everyone wearing a suit and tie while doing so.  Toss in a heavy dose of parody and a killer boomer soundtrack and you may have a mild hit here.     It's late January, movie purgatory.  We'll see.    …

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Bad Boys For Life This is another installment of this franchise, as Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back again.  Whether this is good or not is still up in the air, but we continue to walk down memory lane with no real original ideas being the word of the day at the movies.     This will find an audience.  Could be fun!   Doolittle Now that Iron Man has died, Robert Downey Jr.…

1917 This looks amazing, and I can't wait to see this!  Based on a true story from WWI, this is filmed in a revolutionary new way. This week has been good to this movie as it just won a Golden Globe.  Big cast, and a really amazing story.     Many think this is the Oscar winner this year!   Just Mercy This too is based on a true story from the American South, about…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

Written by
Next week many of 2019's biggest acclaimed movies go to wide release, Like 1917, and Just Mercy.   This week is a quiet one.   The Grudge This looks a bit creepy, and scary as this franchise goes on.  Seems a strange time of the year for a movie with this content is out, a Halloween release may hav been better. BUT January can be a very tough time at the movies, and some may…

MOVIE REVIEW - A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Written by
I wish I could say this is perfect, but I can't.  But what I can say is that Tom Hanks is terrific in this darn good movie that puts PBS TV Icon Fred Rogers front and center.  And he deserves it.  This is based on true events, but sadly it deals far too much about a middle aged reporter and his daddy issues from years ago that are relateble for sure, but in the end,…

MOVIE PREVIEWS - New This Week!

This may be the biggest weekend at the movies in a long time, as far as new movies are concerned.  Thanksgiving week.   A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood Tom Hanks.  Thanksgiving weekend. A fully immersable role.  PG-13.  This movie about Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers) is on the list of "mandatory going."  You almost have to go, like it's a city ordinance of something.  With all due respect to the incredible Hanks, I think many…

MOVIE REVIEW - The Good Liar

Written by
You may think this is just another movie for the over 70's crowd to go see, but you would be wrong, and still technically right I guess. Yes, this stars Helen Mirren, and Ian McKellen, neither one can wear the Spring Chicken costume anymore, or ride the MIllenium Force probably.  But this is really good.  Indeed, they are the stars here, but the real star of this movie, is - the script.  And today, that's…
