All of the elements for a great Star Wars film are here but just not used wisely, at least not for this fan.
Yes, this movie is silly, but not any sillier than the original show. Everything has the same look and feel of the original series and often pokes fun of it.
Under the direction of Timur Bekmambetov, the new “Ben-Hur” is less of a remake and more of a re-imaging of Lew Wallace’s novel, “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.”
“Florence Foster Jenkins” is a gentle comedy with a few laugh out loud moments. Streep is perfect for the role (of course) but then again, so is Grant and Helberg.
Suicide Squad doesn’t try too hard to make us feel sorry for the villains and not all of them are asking for acceptance, but it was nice to see some humanity shown. For those who are eager to see Batman (Ben Affleck) again, you’ll be pleased by the few scenes he shows up in. Also, another DC hero makes a cameo appearance, but blink and you’ll miss him.
Marvel Studios has, for the most part, churned out consistently good movies and “Captain America: Civil War” is no exception.
The best thing about “Miracles From Heaven” is that all of the characters are real. Not everyone in the church congregation are kind, the children are not always angelic, and Mr. and Mrs. Beam actually argue with each other.
The sad thing is that nobody has even heard of this movie which is a shame. “Doris” is a smart, gentle comedy with heart and stars two older women who are great together.
