Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2020-09-18
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: William Olsson
Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Takehiro Hira, Carice van Houten, Andrew Rothney, Misuzu Kanno

The film suffers from an overly-familiar narrative – other films have told with greater power similar stories of lost, self-destructive souls.

"Twilight Zone" elements aside, the movie never loses sight of its twin objectives: maintain suspense and emphasize a message about the enduring, pernicious power of racism.

Geraldine Viswanathan is the reason to see this by-the-numbers rom-com.

Run Time: 2:14
U.S. Release Date: 2020-09-04
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Charlie Kaufman
Cast: Jessie Buckley, Jesse Plemons, Toni Collette, David Thewlis, Guy Boyd

Kaufman once again reminds us that, without someone to shape the writer’s constructs, we’re destined to become stuck in a frustrating morass of eccentricity and self-indulgence.

Run Time: 1:55
U.S. Release Date: 2020-09-04
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Adventure
Director: Niki Caro
Cast: Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Gong Li, Jet Li, Jason Scott Lee, Yonson An, Tzi Ma, Rosalind Chao

An engaging adventure that represents not only an effective retelling of the 1998 film but the best of the studio’s animated-to-live action reconstructions.

Silly, dumb, and completely nonsensical – exactly what one could reasonably expect from the movie and what the fans (given a choice) would demand.

Under ordinary circumstances, it would have been among a select group of “must see” releases during the summer of 2020. As things have turned out, it may be the only one.

More interested in applying non-standard cinematic tactics to enliven the facts rather than being enslaved by them.

This movie is passable popcorn entertainment – a two-hour distraction that won’t stand the test of time but was never intended to.

Run Time: 1:28
U.S. Release Date: 2020-08-06
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Comedy/Fantasy
Director: Brandon Trost
Cast: Seth Rogen, Sarah Snook, Molly Evensen, Eliot Glazer, Kalen Allen

Seth Rogen, playing two roles and showing no chemistry with himself, is in “comedy mode” here but the material isn’t funny enough for that to work.
