All Movies Attack

You know, the week after Memorial Day is supposed to be quiet. But on the other hand, anything that puts Aladdin in the rear-view mirror is fine with me; I’m ready to move on.

Always Be My Maybe: Ali Wong! Randall Park! Rom-com! [Michelle]

Asako I & II: A woman in love. Twice. Kinda.  [Kevin]

The Fall of the American Empire: Denys Arcand, with nothing to say.

Godzilla, King of the Monsters: A more commercial sequel. It’s fine.

Halston: His designs outlived him, of course.

Ma: Octavia Spencer juices a rote thriller. [Rad]

nîpawistamâsowin: WE WILL STAND UP: Colten Boushie’s family won’t be ignored. [Rad]

Photograph: Ritesh Batra’s latest. A little faded.  [Rad]

Rocketman: Elton John: The Jukebox Musical. Wild.

Sorry For Your Loss: Grief comedy squanders a great cast.

I also reviewed the Deadwood movie, which is excellent, and Amazon’s adaptation of Good Omens, which is … well, it’s fine. And Rad tackled Ava Duvernay’s Central Park Five miniseries When They See Us.

Seriously, no one lacks for content this weekend.

One thought on “All Movies Attack”

  1. “Pain or damage don’t end the world. Or despair, or fucking beatings. The world ends when you’re dead. Until then, you’ve got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man… and give some back.”*
