The Little Things

The Little Things

The Little Things stars Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto. With this trio of Oscar-winning actors, what could go wrong? Unfortunately, it’s the script. The story was written and directed by John Lee Hancock who is known for directing such popular movies as The Blind Side, Saving Mr. Banks and The FounderLittle Things is probably his darkest work yet. Hancock wrote the screenplay for this film back in the 1990’s where is sat on the shelf waiting for someone to pick it up. Many years later, he finally decided he was the man for the job. The 2021 film’s storyline is still set in the 1990’s even though it doesn’t look like it except for the fact that nobody is walking around with a cell phone in their hand. Read More >>>

Let Him Go

Let Him Go

Thomas Bezucha must have thought that Kevin Costner and Diane Lane looked very natural as a couple when playing Superman’s earth parents, Jonathan and Martha Kent, in Zack Snyder 2013 film Man of Steel. Although the two didn’t get much screen time together in that movie, they more than make up for it in the thriller, Let Him Go. Based on Larry Watson’s 2013 novel of the same name, the writer/director casted Costner to play retired sheriff George Blackledge and Lane his bride, Margaret who trains troubled horses … Let Him Go is a slow burn thriller taking a good half of the movie to set up the eventual meetup of the two families, but it’s worth the wait. And honestly, the story keeps you guessing a bit. Read More >>>

Onward

Onward

Despite its wacky premise, Onward just might develop a strong following similar to Frozen. In fact, it is its equivalent for boys. That’s not to say that Frozen is a “girls” movie, but just like its main focus was understanding the love one has for one’s sister, Onward is a road trip about brotherly love. It’s also about dealing with grief. It’s very clever, very funny and thoroughly satisfying. Read More >>>

The War with Grandpa

The War with Grandpa

When it comes to making movies for families, studios tend to make two different types of films. One is designed primarily for kids that offers nothing for the parents who brought them to the theater. The other type of film is more like classic Disney animation that is well thought out and offers a story that everyone can enjoy. In the case of The War with Grandpa, it sort of fits somewhere in the middle. In fact, given the casting, this just might be best suited for grandkids and their grandparents and leave mom and pop at home. Read More >>>

Tom Hanks Talks About His New Movie

Based on the best-selling novel by Paulette Jiles with a screenplay written by Greengrass, News of the World take place five years after the end of the Civil War. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe. Sort of a pre-Walter Cronkite. Read More >>>
