Review: 'Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar' Feels Like A Long SNL Skit

Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo in BARB AND STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR

There's a reason why Kristen Wiig's latest film went straight to rental. BARB & STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR is like a live version of a DESPICABLE ME movie or feature length SNL skit. It borders on stupidity but Wiig and her costar/writing partner Annie Mumolo are endearing enough to keep your attention as long as your expectations remain low. It doesn't deliver on the belly laughs we've come to expect from Wiig's comedy but you will get some chuckles. Unfortunately Jamie Dornan feels out of place in this silly comedy.

'WandaVision' Review

WandaVision Paul Bettany Elizabeth Olsen Review

WandaVision arrives to Disney+ January 15 with Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen reprising their roles as Vision and Wanda. It’s nothing like we’ve seen before from the MCU, and it’s a trippy road down memory lane that’s nostalgic but the gag gets old by episode two when no answers are provided.

Review: 'Judas and the Black Messiah' is an Eye-Opening History Lesson

Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield in JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH

JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH is not only entertaining but educational with a fabulous ensemble and standout performances by Daniel Kaluuya and Dominique Fishback. The film dispels much of the negative perception of the Black Panther party as simply a radical militant group which the FBI categorized as a terrorist organization.

'Nomadland' Review: A Tragic Story of the American Dream

Nomadland Frances McDormand Chloe Zhao

Chloe Zhao delivers one of the most striking films of 2020 with NOMADLAND starring Frances McDormand in another award-winning turn. NOMADLAND is a devastating look at one woman's life as a nomad living out of her van traveling from seasonal job to another to make ends meet. While McDormand's character is fictional, it's a tragedy told through McDormand's adventure while bringing to light real-life nomad's personal stories.

'Tenet' Review: Why You Need A Captive Audience To Watch Christopher Nolan's Film

Tenet Movie Robert Pattinson John David Washington Review

TENET finally arrives for home release after only screening in limited movie theaters since September. Nolan insisted on the theatrical release to support exhibitors as they experience a massive decline in business because of the pandemic. Many like myself didn't dare attend an enclosed space for over two hours. After finally watching the mind-bending film at home, I realized Nolan is right that this film required a theatrical viewing with a captive audience to follow the convoluted storyline. At home, the constant distractions and need to rewind scenes made it a difficult watch.
