After the success of last year’s “The Christmas Prince,” Netflix has hopped on the Hallmark Channel train of producing cheesy but heartwarming original Christmas films, releasing four new films in the last month.
In honor of the double feature, I’m going to take a look at the history of the stage show and compare it to the more widely known “Picture Show” version that gives the story its cult status.
It saddened me, this scene, this movie, that although it was fiction, it was the reality for black America. The scenes were so vivid and frighteningly realistic that I had forgotten I was watching a movie until the end, and that was the goal.
Even if one ignores the extremely problematic elements of the film, “Sierra Burgess is a Loser” simply falls flat as a romantic comedy.
“Mission: Impossible—Fallout” is that rare and refreshing film that knows exactly what it is and what it wants to do: awe us.
As someone who grew up never seeing anybody who looked like her on television and in movies, except for Brenda Song on “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody,” “Crazy Rich Asians” meant something to me.
Bo Burnham’s “Eighth Grade” recharges the coming-of-age narrative, successfully tackling young adolescence in the age of social media (read: not a small feat).
It is the little things that matter in “Shoplifters.” These details make the movie chillingly realistic and intricate. Centered on a family in the bottom of society united by their crimes, the movie uses subtle elements to reconstruct its viewers’ opinions on right and wrong.
It’s finally here. I have been waiting for “Avengers: Infinity War” since Thanos was introduced in the first Avengers movie in 2012.
And we’re back! This is part two of my review of each Marvel Cinematic Universe movie before “Avengers: Infinity War.” We left off on the top-tier “Guardians of the Galaxy” and we continue on with the second big team-up.
