The film opens with a title card featuring almost comically large text that reads “THE BATMAN,” filling the entire screen in a tall, skinny, red, sans serif font. Somehow, that was already a good sign.
‘I Want You Back’ is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and the rom-com is exactly what you need just in time for Valentine’s Day (and even after the holiday if you need a quick pick-me-up). Along with an exceptional cast, the movie features some really great music!
Kimi is now streaming on HBO Max, and Steven Soderbergh’s latest film boasts an interesting soundtrack. The music and score for the movie is actually pretty minimal, but there are some astounding musical moments going on here.
Jennifer Lopez is back in a rom-com, and that can never be seen as a bad thing. As much as I love seeing JLo in her hard-hitting roles, there’s something about Rom-Com JLo™ that everyone agrees is just nice.
Subdued but simultaneously compelling, ‘Kimi’ had a plan, it knew what it wanted to do, and it executed it. It didn’t need to be more than 90 minutes long, and it was the better for its compact presentation.
It’s pretty eerie and surprisingly ironic to hear how he manifested his entire career. Ideas he had about the type of music he wanted to create and the opportunities he made for himself almost all came true over the course of the next two decades.
A dark comedy with some Gen Z satire and social commentary packed in, ‘Emergency’ is definitely a highlight of my Sundance 2022 experience. This funny college party movie quickly shifts its focus to touch on problems today’s youth face. The film follows three young men of color who are forced to weigh the pros and cons of calling the police after discovering a drunk white girl knocked out in their house.
Thrilling, absorbing, and impactful, ‘892’ offers up superb performances from John Boyega, Nicole Beharie, Michael K. Williams (in his final role), Selenis Levya, and Connie Britton while drawing attention to some tragic systemic issues.
This is visual mastery at play with tremendous acting performances and an eerie sense of spirit that make it quite the cinematic experience to be had.
Featuring one of the most specifically time-period relevant soundtracks, The Tender Bar soundtrack successfully combines the greatest hits from the late 1960’s, 1970’s, and early 1980’s with some lesser known songs by the biggest artists during that time.
