Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

What we have here is a godawful movie that, despite its general badness, nevertheless casts a spell of sorts.

Brand New to Video Views

Run Time: 1:43
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-09-28
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller/Horror
Director: Everardo Gout
Cast: Ana de la Reguera, Tenoch Huerta, Josh Lucas, Leven Rambin, Cassidy Freeman, Alejandro Edda, Will Patton

Adept at providing the violence fans expect from an exploitation flick and, despite its pretense of offering political commentary, that’s really all this movie is.

If one puts aside the film’s antecedents, what’s left is an unremarkable family film that lacks a compelling reason to exist.

F9, like its predecessors, isn’t about characters or story. It’s about the excessively over-the-top action sequences.

Run Time: 2:15
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-09-14
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profantiy)
Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Cate Shortland
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, Ray Winstone, O-T Fagbenle, William Hurt

With a paint-by-numbers storyline and lackluster villain, the chief pleasures come from Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, and David Harbour.

The flaws of "Justice League" were rooted too deeply for even a complete reworking to solve them.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-09-07
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Nikole Beckwith
Cast: Ed Helms, Patti Harrison

Although not a romantic comedy (the central relationship is of a platonic nature), it has some of the rhythms one commonly associates with the genre.

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Elaine Bogan, Ennio Torresan
Cast: Isabela Merced, Jake Gyllenhaal, Marsai Martin, McKenna Grace, Julianne Moore, Walton Goggins, Eiza Gonzalez, Andre Braugher

As generic, made-for-quick-consumption animated productions go, there’s nothing especially bad about "Spirit Untamed." Unfortunately, there’s nothing especially good, either.

Run Time: 2:23
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-08-31
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Musical
Director: Jon M. Chu
Cast: Anthony Ramos, Melissa Barrera, Jimmy Smits, Leslie Grace, Corey Hawkins, Olga Merediz, Gregory Diaz IV

The high-energy musical numbers represent the motivation to stick with the movie when the narrative momentum flags.

Run Time: 1:59

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: 1:59

Those unfamiliar with the Shakespeare plays that form the basis of "Chimes" may find themselves playing catch-up or feel like they're doing homework.
