Like its lead woman, it is reserved and far more realistic with its urban sauntering. In different and disinterested hands, the floozy-plus-dreamboat formula would be in full effect. Review

Farrelly’s movie softly pushes those repetitive messages that have been done better elsewhere, making The Greatest Beer Run Ever 30 years late in its relevance and topicality. Review

Not a single glandular release from her striking eyes seems disingenuous. In depicting one icon, Blonde may have just launched another with its lead actress. Review

Wilde’s bold presentation is a worthy entry into that pantheon of rug pulls and repeat viewing potential, even if it’s to measure missteps versus successes. Review

Some of the standout efforts include the fabulous costume work of Gersha Phillips, the enveloping cinematography of Polly Morgan, and the intricate choreography of Zoyi Lindiwe Muendane. Review

So much of Confess, Fletch feels like a wiser-than the norm throwback against the hefty audience quadrant that will always prefer the louder, action-ified punch of the James Bonds and Jason Bournes of the world over a journalist gumshoe. If that crowd can slow down for a smaller and smoother ride, they will find mental thrills equally clever to the pop of blockbuster stunts that fade as quickly as they explode. Review

True to the put-upon team of who and what they represent, Hall’s brilliance does not work without Sterling K. Brown’s electric performance of off-the-charts vanity. Review

The special thing is Samaritan shows how much Sylvester Stallone still offers as an actor that has nothing to do with the ripped physicality that made him famous. Review

Director Abi Damaris Corbin resists the temptations to pound messages and shout showy monologues. He and his screenwriting partner Kwame Kwei-Armah uphold the simple and poignant principles that were at hand with this true story and on the central figure’s mind during a fateful July day in 2017.

In this way, Beast moves very well in its 93 minutes to pounce at the prescribed times the audience finds itself eager for a spill or thrill. Review

Even with some shortcomings in a mighty tall place, the draw of conquering great heights still wins and brings out more than enough nervous perspiration to memorably soak seats. Review

Koy boastfully perpetuates some bad behaviors while chastising others. That comedic selectivity creates a bit of double-talk. Review

The entirety of Nope adds up to a sometimes wobbly balance of consequential and inconsequential outcomes because of those suspiciously selective and disproportionate points of focus. Review

Dramatic difficulties fleshed out Holmes and her cast prove otherwise. The direction and storytelling grace of Holmes’ results are very praiseworthy, especially during this continuing pandemic. Review

Live in this family for a bit. Soak in their aura. With a dynamite line in Relative, a suitor says to their prospective squeeze, “I could drink a case of you.” Let Smith’s words and his ensemble fill and stir the drink of your spirit. You’ll be intoxicated by the results. Review

By endearing the good graces of the proven Russos and A-list Gosling, leveraging Greaney’s more-modern series as a Clancy protege has created a very brash, glossy, and able replacement candidate for when Ethan Hunt hangs up his running shoes and Dominic Torretto parks his car. Review

For better or worse, this is Thor now, even for those who remember his old and better history. Maybe at least, even in sideshow comedy mode, this character will finally have consistency. Review
