Super Soundtrack: ‘The Tender Bar’ on Prime Video

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.

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: ‘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.

Film Review: A24 & Showtime’s ‘The Humans’ (dir. Stephen Karam)

The Humans offers a fly-on-the-wall experience of this family’s flailing Thanksgiving dinner. This ensemble cast bounces off one another so well. There are two conflicting themes here that create a really unique tonal tension. Lean into its many quirks, and that’s when it works.
