It's taken a little longer than usual for a box office smash to beget a sequel. In "Coming to America," Eddie Murphy played Prince Akeem, from the African kingdom of Zamunda - a man hoping to find a wife in Queens. That film was released in 1988. Now, 33 years later, Akeem, and quite a few o…

For the fourth filmed version of Noel Coward's hit stage play "Blithe Spirit," director Edward Hall and his battery of script writers have managed to keep much of the ditzy original flavor of the Coward piece - it's still set in 1930s England - but also make it accessible to and funny for mo…

I can't recall the last film that has been so praised, so nominated by so many film and critics groups as "Nomadland." Categories include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and others. It's also been collecting heaps of …

I started watching this movie - reluctantly, because someone told me it was about people caught in a time loop, a genre that has worn out its welcome for me. And right there, in the first few minutes, it was as if I was caught in my own time loop, of seeing exactly this sort of film again an…

Fans of "The Matrix" trilogy will recognize, early on, that there are some similarities between those films and "Bliss." Both are about certain people having choices of living in two different existences. Both involve ingesting special drugs to go from one "place" to the other. Both feature …

If the kind of movie that you enjoy watching is one that presents a few characters, tosses them together to tell a story, and gets you emotionally involved, then "Palmer" could be for you. But if those characters aren't developed enough to understand their motivations, if the gears that turn…

Here's what "The Little Things" is, and what it isn't. It's a serial killer drama about a couple of cops on the trail of who they think is committing the crimes. It's not an exploitative story that shows the horrific murders happening. It spells out how the two cops, each of them with very d…

Forget the ludicrous mini-series "Tiger King," which premiered right around the same time as the pandemic hit America. Forget Tony the Tiger, whose voice and visage have sold millions of boxes of Frosted Flakes. Forget, if you're an old hippie, Tiger Balm, the cooling, menthol-infused cream …

There's a special sort of small British film that doesn't have a precise label, but often has adjectives such as feelgood or laidback attached to it. Top of my head: "Waking Ned Devine," "Calendar Girls," "The Full Monty," "Happy-Go-Lucky." Frequently they're much more about characters and w…

For fans of 2017's "Wonder Woman," there's something familiar and comforting about the opening scenes of "Wonder Woman 1984." We're back on the island of Themyscira, circa 1900, populated only by women, all of whom are as athletic as they are stunningly beautiful, and by little Princess Dian…

Not very cinematic - most of it takes place in a couple of small rooms - with a weak and very sudden out-of-left-field climax, "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" is nevertheless a marvelously entertaining film that highlights a superb ensemble cast and a couple of standout performances.

Linguistic scholars will not be happy with the English translation for the title of this Danish film. When it was released in Denmark, it was called "Druk," a Danish term for binge drinking. American audiences are getting it as "Another Round," a happier-sounding, more celebratory version of…

Gal Gadot did not burst, sight unseen, onto the American movie landscape as the golden tiara-wearing, glowing lariat-twirling, eternally truth-telling Wonder Woman. She had already been a recurring character - the weapon-savvy Gisele - in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, and had minor rol…

When am I going to learn not to judge a book by its cover, or a movie by its title, or by what I think is its premise? I almost passed on watching "The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee." The title is too long and formal. And I was led to believe that it was a comedy about the Australian actor Paul …
