Video Views Extra: New Review of an Older Movie

Run Time: 1:45
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-06-25
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Nudity)
Genre: Action/Comedy
Director: Martin Brest
Cast: Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Lisa Eilbacher, Ronny Cox, Steven Berkoff, James Russo, Jonathan Banks

There is enough humor in the mix to elevate "Beverly Hills Cop" above the level of a staple 80s action film.

Generally viewed not only as the best of the Burton/Schumacher series but one of the best superhero movies of the 20th century.

Run Time: 1:31
U.S. Home Release Date: 2024-02-29
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy
Director: John Landis
Cast: Simon Pegg, Andy Serkis, Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Curry, David Hayman, Ronnie Corbett

Fans of the Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright collaborations may find the material to be engaging but there is little to convince contemporary viewers that this is a forgotten gem.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Stanley Donen
Cast: Michael Caine, Joseph Bologna, Michelle Johnson, Demi Moore, Valerie Harper

Viewed in 1984, "Blame it on Rio" was a bad movie. Viewed forty years later, the badness is overlaid by a strong creepiness factor.

Run Time: 1:33
U.S. Home Release Date: 2023-10-17
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Osgood Perkins
Cast: Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Boynton, Emma Roberts, James Remar, Lauren Holly

Although neither scary nor creepy (despite its "horror" classification), the movie is a puzzle whose picture fails to snap into focus until the final piece is in place.

Run Time: 1:38

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Henry Bean
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Billy Zane, Theresa Russell, Summer Phoenix

An interesting film for the things it does right but, by the time the end credits rolled, I was unable to fight back a sense of frustration with its limitations.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Profanity, Drugs)
Genre: Comedy/Horror
Director: Tim Story
Cast: Antoinette Robertson, Dewayne Perkins, Sinqua Walls, Grace Byers, X Mayo, Melvin Gregg, Jermaine Fowler

Beneath all the gags, jokes, and one-liners, it dissects not only the role of Black characters in horror movies but the perception of Black viewers of those characters.

Run Time: 2:01
U.S. Home Release Date: 2023-08-15
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Matt Johnson
Cast: Jay Baruchel, Glenn Howerton, Matt Johnson, Rich Sommer, Michael Ironside, Martin Donovan, Cary Elwes

A classic rags-to-riches-to-rags story; a feel-good tale that transforms into a meditation on arrogance and neglect.

An overlong blockbuster in search of an editor and a series of impressive action sequences without a compelling narrative to connect them.

Run Time: 2:10
U.S. Home Release Date: 2023-01-31
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Luca Guadagnino
Cast: Taylor Russell, Timothee Chalamet, Mark Rylance, Andre Holland, Anna Cobb, Chloë Sevigny

Adding a dash of gore and an undercooked romance cannot save this meandering road trip movie from slipping into monotony and boredom.
