After successfully teaming up for "Patriots Day," "Deepwater Horizon" and "Lone Survivor" (we'll forget about "Mile 22" for now), actor/producer Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg finally release a dud with the Netflix action-comedy, "Spenser Confidential."
This satire about the uber-wealthy is one odd film, a movie that doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts.
The name alone - PIXAR - exudes a certain level of high-quality, creativity and innovation that few other brands have ever achieved. But with high expectations come greater risk of letdown, and while "Onward" sure looks pretty, it feels more like a side-step than a leap forward for the high-powered animation studio.
If you go into "Downhill" expecting laugh-out-loud comedy, the likes of which both Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have built careers with, you may wind up disappointed. Some movies are better seen knowing nothing about them, but in this case, it's probably best to have some fore-warning and to know what you're stepping into.
Take my film critic credentials and throw them in the ocean. "Dolittle" is not good...it's quite bad in fact. Still, there's worse ways to spend a weekend afternoon with the kiddies. A glowing endorsement, right?
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence re-team as "bad boys" in this third - and final? - installment that started way back in 1995.
Jay Roach's approach to the sexual harassment lawsuit that rocked FOX News is not quite "fair and balanced," but it sure is fun.
Two fantastic actors take on two amazing men, and the results are nothing short of miraculous. Too bad the film doesn't have faith enough to stay focused in the present.
Those that loved the the 2017 franchise reboot, "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" are probably not going to have a problem with its new sequel...but that doesn't mean it's good.
It's not sharp enough to be in the awards-season discussion, but "Knives Out" is a deliciously fun night out at the movies.
