BELFAST
"Not especially moving or effective."
3 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "In his autobiographical film "Belfast," writer-director Kenneth Branagh has a lot to say about the transporting power of movies, "Star Trek," and the loveliness of a smart girl in one’s classroom." (more)
KING RICHARD
"Will power."
4 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "You may be forgiven, watching "King Richard," for wondering what exactly Richard Williams’ deal was. Was he a prophet or a damned lucky delusional?" (more)
GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE
"Honestly not even that great as nostalgia."
2 stars
Jay Seaver says... "There's a line, somewhere around 1978 or so, where folks on one side experienced the original "Ghostbusters" as a great, kind of crude big-budget comedy with a disappointing sequel in the same vein (maybe the first adult-skewing comedy their parents let them watch); on the other side, people who watched "The Real Ghostbusters" on Saturday mornings, had toys, games, comics, all sorts of stuff that goes with a light adventure franchise, even though most would circle back around to the original movie. "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" is a movie very much for the latter audience, and that's fine - they buy more movie tickets, after all - but once the filmmakers went that route, they could have made a much better movie." (more)
ETERNALS
"Adventure almost as big as its ideas."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "Jack Kirby's comic book series "The Eternals" was published by Marvel Comics but only retrofitted into the shared universe later, and not always well (one gets the idea later writers would have more use for the grand mythology than the individual characters), and one often gets the sense that the movie adaptation would be better off outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. Though not perfect, Chloe Zhao's film is grand fantasy with its own big ideas, and is at its best when one doesn't have to worry about it fitting into another framework as this month's apocalypse." (more)
KURT VONNEGUT: UNSTUCK IN TIME
"So it goes."
4 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "In 1941, an 18-year-old Kurt Vonnegut Jr. inscribed a book to his high-school girlfriend, who would later become his wife. He wrote, “To be shown to our children when they begin to wonder what things are most important in this world that some fools call hell.”" (more)
SPINE OF NIGHT, THE
"Pure pulp."
3 stars
Jay Seaver says... ""The Spine of Night" wears its influences proudly, to the extent that one may wonder what it is besides those influences, particularly if bloody fantasy is not particularly one's cup of tea. It's an impressively-mounted example of that particular genre, especially considering how far back its inspirations are, but not for everyone. If one isn't into nudity, bloody violence, and power fantasies for their own sake, they probably won't get a whole lot else out of the movie." (more)
VIOLET (2021)
"Time to give Olivia Munn some respect."
4 stars
Rob Gonsalves says... "Olivia Munn has been on my radar since 2006, when she started as one of the hosts of G4’s goofball gamers-and-geeks program 'Attack of the Show.'" (more)
RESCUE, THE (2021)
"Humbly presented and all the more engrossing for it."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "As I mentioned in the recent review of a fictional film, there is very little more satisfying than watching very competent people just get down to doing good with their skills, and that's what "The Rescue" is in more or less undiluted form. The audience knows the story of how a boy's soccer team was rescued from a cave in Thailand, at least during the film's initial release three years after the event, so the filmmakers just get down to fleshing it out with detail without getting overly technical."
