Across the Universe

One could never argue that Across the Universe isn't ambitious. However, like many ambitious movies, this one fails spectacularly. Glenn Kenny of Premiere magazine called it "the perfect disaster" and, while I think that's a little harsh, I underst...

Aladdin

Perhaps the most appropriate word to describe Disney’s 2019 re-make of their 1992 classic, Aladdin, is “unnecessary.” “Pointless” might also apply. Although those terms could be employed for a host of remakes, they are more apt here ...

American in Paris, An

The two decade period beginning in the late 1940s and concluding in the late 1960s represented the height in popularity for the Hollywood musical. Not only did nearly every major production prove to be box office gold, but the level of critical ap...

Annie

Most remakes are unnecessary but Annie is a bigger offender than many. Reeking of redundancy, the film not only proves incapable of overcoming the inevitable sense of déjà vu but, despite a host of cosmetic changes, it fails to answer the questio...

Basmati Blues

Basmati Blues isn’t nearly as bad as some of the online buzz might indicate…and that’s actually unfortunate. Instead of vying for a so-bad-it’s-entertaining categorization, it falls squarely into the hell of cinematic mediocrity. A fo...

Beauty and the Beast

Peter Allen and Carole Bayer Sager wrote “No need to remember when, 'Cause everything old is new again.” Lately, that has become the Disney way: take a classic animated film and remake it into something that, although shiny and eye-po...

Blinded by the Light

Blinded by the Light is a one-third Bruce Springsteen hagiography, one-third kitschy ‘80s recreation, and one-third feel-good father/son coming together. Surprisingly, however, it works. The movie combines an infectious spirit with a serious...

Bohemian Rhapsody

The most compelling thing about Queen has always been the music. The story behind the band, like the stories behind many bands, is a combination of the banal, the tragic, and the clichéd. For this “based on a true story” movie, the filmma...
