Kung Fu Panda 3
Continuing his "legendary adventures of awesomeness", Po must face two hugely epic, but different threats: one supernatural and the other a little closer to his home.
There’s a movie lover’s gift at the heart of Joel Edgerton’s terrifically entertaining thriller. Because this chilly chiller has a lot more on its mind than only getting you to jump out of your seat.
Edgerton, who wrote, produced and directed, as well as co-stars, takes us on quite a ride. Just when you think you know where we’re going, we’re not. And, while he makes sure we’re thoroughly entertained (when was the last time you watched a movie where the entire audience screamed in unison only to collapse into hysterical giggles immediately afterward?), he also sweetens the pot with a true moral punch to the gut, making this almost a classic drama that thrills rather than a traditional goosebumpy revenge flick.
This movie is as bad as it looks.
Director Tarsem Singh never wrangles Alex and David Pastor’s mess of a mélange into anything comprehensible. Too bad, really, as, somewhere buried deep inside here is a decent concept.
Ben Kingsley starts us off as a ruthless New York City billionaire real estate developer. I’m not entirely sure, but it looks like the scenes shot for his apartment are actually rooms in the gilded Trump Tower apartment Donald Trump calls home. Nice views if you can see past all that gold. But back to Self/Less. A movie that proves, at least in this case, less is definitely not more.
Do you have to be high in order to laugh here? No, but for a whole lot of this movie it sure feels that way. It’s really too bad MacFarlane relies so much on the weed breaks he slots so often in this movie. Not only do they slow the fun, they feel repetitive and lazy. And, as we have seen in so much of his work, when MacFarlane tries, he really can deliver some very funny and, as is his signature, topically targeted stuff.
Joanna Langfield's Movie Minute Review of Indie hits of the Summer. What are the best smaller movies of the Summer? Actually, there are several, including this weekend. Lily Tomlin, Ben Kingsley, Jason Siegel.
There’s no real way to prepare yourself for the flat out marvel of Inside Out, the Pixar release that not only revives the studio’s legacy, but the whole concept of family entertainment. Yes, this gorgeously animated story is based on the lives of the innermost emotions of an 11 year old girl, but its keen perceptions, astonishing concept and goofy humor make this a movie that will dazzle viewers of any age.
AreYouScreening.com and BFCA critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire, Shane Leonard, review Focus. We were pretty hard on Will Smith's last effort, and we aren't sure we're going to like this one any better, but generally we appreciate a good con film.
We'll also give some thoughts on the Academy Awards, answer listener questions, and probably have a few interview clips to share.
It's a rough time of year, most years, is Focus worth your time? Listen in and find out.
AreYouScreening.com and BFCA critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire, Shane Leonard, review Fury. The Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf war film hit this weekend, and we'll let you know if it's worth your time.
This one has been drawing a lot of attention over the last few months, possibly because big war films are getting a little more rare, but it isn't exactly clear from the trailer what you're getting. We'll give you the full scoop, and respond to listener questions.
This week we review "Regression" starring Ethan Hawke, Emma Watson, and David Thewlis. Within the context of 80's hysteria over satanic cults, a detective (Hawke) and psychiatrist (Thewlis) investigate the rape of a young woman (Watson) in the Midwest. "Regression" was directed by Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenábar whose 2001 flick "The Others" was probably underrated by most critics and movie-goers. Amenábar is also responsible for "Abre Los Ojos", the trippy, existential screenplay Cameron Crowe adapted into "Vanilla Sky". Tune in today at 1:30 PM PST to find out if this is a must-see or must-skip.
