BORAT SUBSEQUENT MOVIEFILM
Sacha Baron Cohen is a man of many talents. He is incredibly funny, he seems to always be topical, and he's an equal opportunity offender. This film is filled with all of those elements. While this sequel isn't as good as the original, it has several moments that are laugh-out-loud funny. It also has many cringeworthy moments as well. And then there are all of the completely offensive moments. Here's the deal: If you are a Trump supporter that doesn't like people making fun of him or his administration, you should just skip...

HONEST THIEF
Not to make this too simple, but, for the most part, if you've seen one Liam Neeson one-man-against-the-world movie, you've seen them all. It is true, he has a special set of skills, and he uses them all in every film he does. It would be nice to see him use another set of skills by playing a character of another type, but he knows these flicks are his wheelhouse, and so do we. I would rank this film somewhere in the middle of his similar films. It's not great, but it isn't terrible either. It's...

2 HEARTS
Here is pretty much all you need to know about this movie: If you like to laugh a little bit and then sob uncontrollably while watching movies then you need to go see this right now. This film will jerk the tears right out of your face and collect them in a pool between your feet. Aside from the emotional ride, this is a pretty decent film. It's not one that will become a life-long classic, but it will be one that you may want to watch every once in a while to get your cry...

EVIL EYE
NOTE: This film is part of a unique collaboration between Amazon and Blumhouse Television. The two studios have released four films over the last two weeks, and are doing several virtual party screenings called "Welcome to the Blumhouse" through Fantastic Fest and Fangoria. A mother's instincts are always right. Trust your mother. Listen to your mother. These are all phrases we've heard all of our lives, but when it comes to love we tend to ignore mom. The lesson from this film is do not ignore your mother. Just like...

NOCTURNE
NOTE: This film is part of a unique collaboration between Amazon and Blumhouse Television. The two studios have released four films over the last two weeks, and are doing several virtual party screenings called "Welcome to the Blumhouse" through Fantastic Fest and Fangoria. We all know that the arts are very competitive, but this film takes that competitive nature to a new and creepy level. Of the four films in this collection, this one is the creepiest. I wouldn't say that any of them are scary, but this one gets the closest to...

THE WAR WITH GRANDPA
Robert De Niro is the human equivalent of the Energizer Bunny. He's pushing 80 years old, but he works as much, if not more, than most Hollywood A-listers. In fact, he still has two films, other than this one, still to be released this year, and five other films in some stage of production. And the beast thing about his acting is that he makes every film he is in better. There is no way this film will ever be mistaken for cinematic brilliance, but it is one that the whole family can enjoy together. It's filled...

YELLOW ROSE
We all know that if you are going to chase after your dreams you are going to have to overcome a lot of obstacles. This film is all about doing just that. And it does it with beautiful music. Eva Noblezada gives a fantastic performance in a moving film that draws you in and gives light to the struggles faced by many people. She also sings several of the songs herself, which will come as no surprise when you realize she has played the lead in MISS SAIGON on Broadway and and...

BLACK BOX
NOTE: This film is part of a unique collaboration between Amazon and Blumhouse Television. The two studios are releasing four films over the next two weeks and doing several virtual party screenings called "Welcome to the Blumhouse" through Fantastic Fest and Fangoria. If you know anything about Blumhouse Studios you know that they have quickly become the kings of horror. Now they are trying something a little different. BLACK BOX is much more along the lines of classic horror than the jump-scare or slasher flicks that we see all over the place today. It is a thriller...

THE LIE
NOTE: This film is part of a unique collaboration between Amazon and Blumhouse Television. The two studios are releasing four films over the next two weeks and doing several virtual party screenings called "Welcome to the Blumhouse" through Fantastic Fest and Fangoria. Joey King has come a long way since her days as a bit player on THE SUITE LIFE OF ZACK AND CODY and as Beezus's little sister, Ramona. She has proven time and again that she has incredible range as an actor, deftly moving between genres like horror and romantic comedy. She has always been...

A Call To Spy
This movie has it all. Espionage, sabotage, betrayal, escapes, near misses, courageous acts, and powerful, intelligent women. And it is all inspired by real events and real women during World War II. If you are a fan of spy flicks this is a must-see. This is a film that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and holding your breath for way too long. It is exciting and suspenseful from the opening scene all the way to the end credits. Perhaps the best thing about this movie is that...

Eternal Beauty
I know it is only early October in a very weird year, but this is my favorite film of the year...so far. And I have a good feeling it will stay pretty high up in my top 10 films of 2020 when all is said and done. Simply put, this is amazing. Sally Hawkins puts on a master clinic in acting. I know this is a small film without a lot of reach, but I hope that the big studio behind it pushes hard for Hawkins to win Best Actress. She totally...

The Last Shift
Richard Jenkins is a fantastic actor, and his performance in this film is nothing short of a master class. Add to that the amazing performance by Shane Paul McGhie and you have a solid foundation for a very good film. The story is interesting if not exciting. Seeing the conflict that arises between a white man that made a career out of a fast food job and the young, black man that is hired to replace him, but couldn't care less about the job, is a fascinating slice of life in modern day America. ...

Kajillionaire
While the big studios continue to push their big-budget flicks into 2021, the indie films that typically don't have the opportunity to get into the large theater chains are finding their way in. KAJILLIONAIRE is one of those films that, in a normal year, 99% of people would never even know it exists, but this is not a normal year. If you don't watch a lot of indie films you need to know that they are an acquired taste. They aren't polished and edited down to the perfectly focus-grouped scenes. They are typically slower-moving films that...

Shortcut
When a feature film clocks in at 80 minutes you can be assured of one of two things. It is either going to be jam-packed with action and suspense, or it should have been a short film that got stretched into an 80-minute film with 30 minutes of fluff. SHORTCUT is jam-packed with fluff. To put it in perspective, the opening credits, (where nothing happens), are four minutes long. The end credits are 6 1/2 minutes long. Ladies and gentlemen, that makes up nearly 15% of the film's total running time! Add...

Ottolenghi And The Cakes Of Versailles
Back in the time of King Louis XVI and Marie Antionette, Versailles was the epitome of opulence and decadence, especially when it came to food. Most of what we know of the history of food was popularized in the kitchens of Versailles. That is why, when The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York decided to do an exhibit honoring Versailles, they called upon one of the world's great chefs to put together a team of pastry masters to create cakes inspired by Versailles. This documentary follows his journey from finding the right people for...
