Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

The cliche "it's so bad, it's good" doesn't apply here. "The Star Wars Holiday Special" isn't enjoyable on any level, campy or otherwise. It's just ugly, painful, and boring.

Has retained the ability to make viewers laugh at the screwball antics of its characters and remains a breezy, enjoyable romp.

Brand New to Video Views

At times dull and plodding and at other times cartoonishly silly, "Kin" rarely works and, when it does, it’s often for the wrong reasons.

By failing to embrace the absurdity of the situation, the movie sets itself up as just another summer blockbuster-of-the-week.

Run Time: 2:00
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-20
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Romance
Director: Jon M. Chu
Cast: Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong, Sonoya Mizuno

Although the humor is variable, the romance is consistent and that allows the film to go down smoothly even if it takes an inordinately long time to do so.

Run Time: 1:26
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-06
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Romance/Comedy
Director: Victor Levin
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder

Despite having two inherently likable actors, the characters are so disagreeable that it’s difficult to become sympathetic toward their whirlwind affair.

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-06
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Brad Bird
Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Catherine Keener, Bob Odenkirk, Samuel L. Jackson

Gives us a chance to reconnect with characters we fell for in 2004 and discover that, although we may have aged, our affinity for them remains constant.

Run Time: 1:35
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-20
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Carlos Lopez Estrada
Cast: Daveed Diggs, Rafael Casal, Janina Gavankar, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ethan Embry, Tisha Campbell-Martin

A compelling film with much to say about subjects like gentrification and race – things it approaches with a mix of wit and seriousness.

Run Time: 1:43
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-13
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Marc Turtletaub
Cast: Kelly MacDonald, Irrfan Khan, David Denham, Austin Abrams, Bubba Weiler

Although the screenplay is at times antiseptic, few roles could be better to showcase the capabilities of the talented Kelly Macdonald.

An opportunity to re-examine ‘70s attitudes through the lens of ‘10s perceptions, "BlacKkKlansman" is equally entertaining and disturbing.
