CRAZY RICH ASIANS Review — Glorious, Glitzy, Glamorous, Sublime

Crazy Rich Asians Review — The Most Fabulous Film of the Summer So glad the rest of the world has finally joined me on the Crazy Rich Asians bandwagon! This has long been my most anticipated film of the summer, and now it’s my favorite. Yes, it’s a frothy, glittery rom com, but it’s also…

In the Heights Review

IN THE HEIGHTS Review — Bound to Be the Hit of the Summer

Lisa Johnson Mandell’s In the Heights review says the colorful and creative, New York-based romance will take its place among the best musicals of the decade. Dazzling — if there’s one word to describe Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes’s new big screen adaptation of his Broadway hit, In the Heights, that would be it. The…

The Gentlemen review

THE GENTLEMEN Review — a Criminally Insane Comedy of Manners

Staci Layne Wilson’s The Gentlemen review says it’s a testosterone-soaked love-fest with a killer cast. While one may think more of Noël Coward or Robert Altman when it comes to classic comedies of manner, writer-director Guy Ritchie certainly deserves a place at the table with his newest action thriller, The Gentlemen. This frenetic flick depicts…

Last Christmas review

LAST CHRISTMAS Review — At Least the Cast is Pretty

Last Christmas review — Swinging for the Love Actually fences and missing.  This film has an impeccable pedigree — co-written by the divine Emma Thompson, who also has a small role, and directed by rom com impressario Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Knocked Up, A Simple Favor). Then there’s the fact that it stars the outrageously gorgeous…

GOOSEBUMPS 2: A Haunted Halloween Review

GOOSEBUMPS 2: A HAUNTED HALLOWEEN Review — The Second Verse is Better Than the First

Goosebumps 2: A Haunted Halloween Review — Winston asks what more could you want than humor, wit and monsters? Goosebumps 2: A Haunted Halloween has humor, wit, and monsters. What more could you ask? Even though it’s a lot like the first one, it’s even better. The film is about two friends named Sonny (Jeremy Ray…

A Simple Favor review

A SIMPLE FAVOR Review — Suspense, Style and Humor: What More Could You Ask?

Twisty, testy and tasty, A Simple Favor is watchability on a silver platter I love a movie that can keep me guessing, one that doesn’t reveal plot twists coming from a mile away. Throw in killer (literally) fashion, arch humor and an utterly engaging cast, and you have one fabulous movie in my book, or…
