Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

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

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.

Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Peter Berg
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, Iko Uwais, John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, Carlo Alban, Sam Medina

Delivers precisely what’s expected from a violent, escapist action film and does so with brevity and shock power.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Home Release Date: 2018-11-13
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Romance/Comedy
Director: Jesse Peretz
Cast: Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke, Chris O’Dowd, Azhy Robertson, Ayoola Smart

Unlike mainstream romantic comedies, this one comes with weightier issues and doesn’t fill up its screen time with inane tangents and dumb jokes.

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.

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

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.

With an unwavering devotion to spectacle and action, the film throws down a gauntlet where this kind of mass team-up is concerned.
