Who could forget the classic "Star Wars Holiday Special" that aired on CBS during the Christmas holiday of 1978? The answer is, even if you were lucky enough to have seen it when it originally aired, you would have tried forgetting about it almost immediately. The special is famously BAD, despite starring the cast from the films, including Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. It was so terrible that it never aired again, and has never, ever seen an official release, making it all the more of a cult-favorite item when VHS recordings of it would pop up at conventions years later.
Knowing full-well how legendary that special has become, to commemorate the 42nd anniversary of its airing, Disney+ is releasing an all-new "LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special." This new version features the recent Star Wars heroes like Rey, Finn and Poe in their own "Life Day" adventure. as it honors the entire saga new and old, poking fun at the famous special in which it is based all the while.
Among other things, 2020 will be known as one of the best years for documentary film. "Collective" should be at the forefront of this list, a gripping and urgent doc that highlights the power and necessity of a free press.
Review: 'Feels Good Man' tells the story of Pepe, the slacker frog who just so happens to be a symbol of hate
Pepe the Frog wasn't supposed to represent white supremacy and the alt-right. The character - and his creator, Matt Furie - are profiled in the entertaining and eye-opening "Feels Good Man," a documentary about the power of going viral.
Two remarkable performances make "Ammonite" worth discovering, but this film crumbles under its own weight.
You don't quite realize how "soft" and watered-down animated films in America have become over the years, until you see a film from overseas. Cartoon Saloon and Mélusine Productions (an Ireland-Luxembourg-France co-production) brings us the original Apple TV+ film, "Wolfwalkers," a film that is definitely family-friendly but that doesn't shy away from more mature themes.
Plus, it's an absolute stunning visual achievement.
The "Freaky Friday" body-switch gimmick is given a gory, R-rated twist in "Freaky," a deliciously cheesy horror-comedy hitting theaters this Friday.
It's the latest documentary from Werner Herzog, which might be enough of a reason for his fans to see it. For everyone else, it's fairly straight-forward documentary about the impact (no pun intended) that meteors have had on this planet, and on human civilization, over the centuries.
Based on the best-selling memoir from author J.D. Vance, "Hillbilly Elegy" is so vanilla you can almost taste it. But mixed in are two performances that will surely generate some buzz come Oscar season...assuming there is an Oscar season.
You can tell that "The Climb" started as a short-film. When extended into a full feature, "The Climb" begins to feel like an uphill struggle, despite some clever and sometimes hilarious detours along the way.
