Smallfoot

I’ve spent the last few days trying to come up with good things to say about Smallfoot: its grand purpose, timely themes, wonderfully engaging voice casting, sterling animation, almost every aspect that I could think of. Yet the one recurring phrase coming to my mind is “middle of the road.” Don’t get me wrong; it […]

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

(I apologize for the lateness of this review. The famed 24-hour bug hit my kids in sequential order during my screening of this film, then landed straight on me.) Kingsman: The Golden Circle picks up right where Kingsman: The Secret Service left off. Not as far as time elapsed between the stories each film tells, […]

Magic Mike XXL

While doing some metal grinding in his workshop, Mike Lane (Channing Tatum) hears Ginuwine’s “Pony” start blasting over his Pandora feed. Alone and unobserved, what’s a former stripper – excuse me, male entertainer – supposed to do when his old signature song comes on his shop speakers at random? Keep working, or launch straight into […]

Foxcatcher

A frigid, monochromatic biopic that hopes audiences will perceive dead-eyed gazes and painfully slow-to-materialize dialogue as Oscar-worthy material, “Foxcatcher” tells its story with virtually zero charisma. Indeed, the film boasts dramatic transformations for Steve Carrell and Channing Tatum, but it’s tough to tell whether accolades should be given to the actors or the prosthetics department. […]
