‘Let Them All Talk’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Takes You on a Leisurely Cruise in This Curious Dramedy

Can you even imagine going on a cruise again? I’m sure some people are perfectly fine with the idea – heck, some people would be willing to go right now, this very second, if they could. But here in the age of the coronavirus, cruises seem like floating Petri dishes; isolated barges with no escape. Which makes Steven Soderbergh‘s curious Let Them All Talk already feel weirdly dated. It’s set in a world where people gather freely, maskless, throwing their cares to the wind. They board a huge shi...

‘Godmothered’ Review: Disney’s Latest is a Merely Okay Retread of ‘Enchanted’ and ‘Elf’

Disney cannot resist cannibalizing itself, even after it’s had a good helping. The existence of Disney+ allows the larger company to continue remaking its animated films in live-action form, or rebooting them, or re-imagining them, or re-whatever-ing them. The new Disney+ film Godmothered would fall into the “re-imagining” camp; it’s not officially a remake of Cinderella , the 1950 film that made the concept of the fairy godmother feel like an iconic Disney creation. Instead, Godmothere...

‘The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone’ Review: Francis Ford Coppola Offers a ‘Godfather III’ Re-Cut You Can’t Refuse

When it comes to Francis Ford Coppola‘s Godfather trilogy, everyone seems to be in agreement: the first two movies are full-blown masterpieces, and the less said about the third film the better. We shouldn’t cry too hard for The Godfather Part III – despite its modern-day reputation of being a dud, it was actually well-received at the box office and even netted itself seven Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture!). But over the years, Coppola’s swan song for the Corleone family has b...

‘Godmothered’ Stars Jillian Bell and Isla Fisher on the Responsibility of Leading a Girl-Powered Disney Adventure [Interview]

Like Enchanted before it, this film leans heavily on Disney iconography, often playfully poking and prodding it from a thoroughly modern perspective. But in the end, it reveals why fairy tales still continue to resonate – the...
