Took my 7-year old daughter to this on a scorching Tuesday afternoon. So if I got a little sleepy, it was probably because of the air conditioning and bad popcorn. The first Incredibles movie was always going to be hard to top. It came out of nowhere and was full of amazing surprises. This one doesn't really have many surprises and feels fairly safe, with the best parts, in my opinion, being Edna since it is so reminiscent of the first movie (same set pieces and everything). ...

Visually intense and hilarious. Might put you to sleep with the overwhelming art of it.

I was born in 1968 at the height, or close to it, of American involvement in Vietnam. By the time I was 5, U.S. troops were pulling out of combat roles and the war, as far as America was concerned was winding up. I distinctly remember the day Nixon resigned although I'd no real idea of what that meant. I had an uncle who served three tours in Vietnam. I had friend's parents who served in the Marines in Vietnam. Growing up I knew and saw many vets. And for all that, I must admit I knew very little...

Well that was unsettling. Took me four days to come down from this movie and land in a safe enough place to be able to think about it again to write a review.

Better than I expected, but overall only barely good.

Annihilation is a film that tries too hard to be interesting with material that's been covered many times before.

The Handmaid's Tale, season 2, episodes 3 and 4- The writers reconfirm June's existence and delve more deeply into the roots of her "sin".

Venturing out past the novel and the 80s film, the series tries to establish a path toward the (ahem) future.

Not what you'd expect, but still a pretty good coming-of-age story. I find this to be the most misleading trailer since Drive. I was expecting a super casual and light comedy about coming-out. Instead, I got Perks of Being a Wallflower morphing into You've Got Mail and then trying a Never Been Kissed type of epilogue. Luckily 2/3rds through the movie it turns into some pretty heavy drama and I think those are the best parts of the movie. The act of voluntarily versus involuntarily coming-out to your friends, to your family. Those moments are exceptionally...

In a word, authentic. They pull off something here that Clint Eastwood just can't seem to nail (using non-actors to make it feel real). It makes for a pretty emotional and highly engaging film. Similar in many ways to The Wrestler, but instead of a daughter who doesn't need him, you have a sister who very much does need him. The cinematography is off the charts, reminding me of Legends of the Fall, Brokeback Mountain, Dances with Wolves and just a smidgen of Hell or High Water. (the various movie studios pay...
