Film Review: ‘The Tender Bar’ (dir. George Clooney)

This is such a relatable but personal story that I feel many will share a pretty heartfelt connection. The script is really a cocktail of life lessons, and there are so many instantly quote-able lines. Ben Affleck is the cool uncle you always wanted, and Tye Sheridan, Daniel Ranieri, and Lily Rabe are all great here.

Film Review: ‘The 355’ (dir. Simon Kinberg)

This stellar ensemble cast is weight down by a predictable and often bland story despite ‘The 355’s cultural variety and incredibly well choreographed action sequences.

Film Review: ‘Red Rocket’ (dir. Sean Baker)

The crisp cinematography, striking color palette, and calculated camerawork made this absolutely fascinating eye candy (and with such great substance of a story, too).

Film Review + Super Soundtrack: ‘Sing 2’

Luckily, Sing 2 hits all the right notes that the first Sing film did. These characters are hard not to love, and you really do almost forget that they’re animated. It also succeeds at aiming its story toward both adults and children alike. Who would’ve thought that a story about singing elephants, pigs, gorillas, and porcupines could be so touching?

Film Review: ‘Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss’ (dir. Tommy Oliver)

‘Juice WRLD: Into the Abyss’ is the fifth and final documentary from HBO’s Music Box series of docs. Sadly, Into the Abyss couldn’t be a more fitting title for this Juice WRLD documentary. It’s also appropriate considering the fact that he had the words tattooed in large writing on both of his forearms. Charting the rise of his massively successful career, it also subsequently charts his downfall and demise as his drug use gets more and more intense.

Film Review: ‘Being the Ricardos’ (dir. Aaron Sorkin)

‘BEING THE RICARDOS’ is at its best when it gets past the relationship drama going on between Lucy and Desi, delving into the inner-workings of “I Love Lucy” and peeling back the glitz and glamour of showbiz.

Film Review: ‘C’mon C’mon’ (dir. Mike Mills)

C’MON C’MON looks to the future in this genuinely heartfelt story that is visually stunning and makes even the most mundane emotions and parts of life seem universally felt. This character feels the closest to Joaquin Phoenix and is such a 180 from his role as the Joker. Woody Norman offers such an honest, realistic child perspective unlike any kid actor I’ve ever seen.
