Silent Night Review: A Pitch-Black Christmas Comedy About The End Of The World

The holidays — it's the time for celebration, for homecomings, for awkward family dinners, for contemplating death at the end of the world. Well, less so the latter, but in the pitch-black comedy "Silent Night," it most certainly is the case.Camille Griffin writes and directs this apocalyptic Christmas movie, which bears all the hallmarks of a homegrown acerbic British holiday comedy, complete with the quirky, foul-mouthed group of friends, the wry humor, and the eye-rolling nods to the sentimen...

Flee Review: Animated Documentary Paints A Refugee Tale More Vivid And Sharp Than Reality

Jonas Poher Rasmussen was 15 when he first saw a timid-looking Afghani boy on his local train ride to school. The boy, Amin, caught his attention for a number of reasons: In his sleepy Danish town in the 1980s, there weren't a lot of Afghani people at all, let alone teens who appeared to be living on their own. But he was most struck by Amin's style — cool, edgy, and bold, as if to dare you to look at him, at a time when immigrants dare not be noticed. It was these things that led Poher Rasmusse...

Everything's Changed In It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Yet The Gang Remains The Same

What's up, jabronis? Season 15 of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is finally here, making it the longest-running live-action comedy series in television history. The series has always been a bit self-referential, but the upcoming season looks like it will be the most introspective yet. While "the gang," comprised of Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Charlie (Charlie Day), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank (Danny DeVito) never learn anything and the only kind of self-growth they've ...

Chucky Season 1 Spoiler Review: Dolls Well That Ends Well

For over 30 years, "Child's Play" creator Don Mancini has been the beating, bleeding heart behind horror's favorite possessed plastic pal, and the first season of the TV series named for the demented doll successfully takes Mancini's canon of seven films and blends them all together in a cacophony of all things "Chucky." Mancini has consistently stayed true to his vision, and the "Child's Play" franchise has evolved from a traditional slasher, to high-camp concepts that only work if the audience...

Nightmare Alley Review: Guillermo Del Toro's Carnival Noir Is Stylish As Hell, With A Standout Cate Blanchett Performance

Stan Carlisle walks away from a house on fire and ends up at a carnival. This is how Guillermo del Toro's gorgeous noir "Nightmare Alley" begins, setting the mood for a wickedly enjoyable tale of freak shows, dark and stormy nights, innocent dames, morally bankrupt schemers, and a femme fatale to die for. Adapted from the 1946 novel by William Lindsay Gresham and the delectably dark 1947 film adaptation starring Tyrone Power, del Toro's "Nightmare Alley" is a carnival funhouse of earthly horrors...

West Side Story Review: Steven Spielberg's Big, Vibrant Take On The Classic Musical Is One Of His Best Films

The camera pans across dusty, rubble-strewn ruins, the bent bars of fire escapes littered everywhere, stacked on top of each other like twisted limbs. It looks like a bomb went off here; like we're witnessing the end of the world. And then we see a sign: New York City Housing Authority Slum Clearance. Cranes, and bulldozers, and wrecking balls dot the landscape. One day, this will all be Lincoln Center. For now, it's the turf of the Jets and the Sharks. And that turf is shrinking.

Review: Passing

— by BEV QUESTAD — “All of us are just passing for something or other, aren’t we?” Irene muses rhetorically.

The Length Of Peter Jackson's The Beatles: Get Back Is Kind Of The Point

While Peter Jackson's deep dive into the creative process of The Beatles has been getting mostly rave reviews there has been some pushback on its long runtime. "Get Back" was intended to be a long feature and then during the Covid lockdown the decision was made to release it as a limited series on Disney+.The thing is three parts, each one well over two hours each — and the eight-hour length of the full docu-series has been a sticking point for some critics, including our own Josh Spiegel.Jokes ...

The Visitor Review: The Musical Adaptation Is White Centricity Set To Average Music

In Tom McCarthy's 2007 film "The Visitor," released six years after September 11, 2001, a wall painting of the Twin Towers haunts the ICE detention center. Its presence denotes the racist and Islamophobic inhumanities that were exacerbated when the Bush administration waged the War on Terror in response to the 9/11 attacks. A critically regarded Sundance-selected drama, "The Visitor" has been noted by critics as one of the few humanizing portraits of undocumented people of color, though through ...

Succession Season 3 Power Rankings: Too Many Breakdowns And Too Much Birthday

(The bid for power has intensified in season 3 of "Succession," meaning now more than ever, anyone can come out on top. As the war rages on, we'll be tracking the rise and descent of the Roy's, their allies and their never-ending list of enemies.)This week, "Succession" kicks off with Kendall Roy's rendition of Billy Joel's "Honest Man." Despite the fact that he warbles on for what feels like an excruciating (and oddly mesmerizing) lifetime, there's still 50 minutes of episode left when it wraps...

Doctor Who: Flux Goes Around The World In Too Little Time In The Penultimate Survivors Of The Flux

The fifth and penultimate episode of "Doctor Who: Flux" feels like the closest to Marvel that "Doctor Who" has ever been — and that's not just because "Survivors of the Flux" throws around words like "multiverse" and gives UNIT an origin story ripped straight from the HYDRA infiltration of SHIELD (don't even get me started on the Division revelations and its parallels to "Loki"). It's because this fifth chapter of "Flux" feels like skimming through the pages of a comic book: alternately chaotic,...

The Beatles: Get Back Review: A Shapeless Documentary With A Fantastic Ending

The new 8-hour, 3-part docuseries "The Beatles: Get Back," branded as a Disney+ Original and hailing from blockbuster filmmaker Peter Jackson, raises two unavoidable and unfortunately unanswerable questions. First, why is this 8 hours long? And second, why is this on Disney+? The latter question, no less a head-scratcher than the first, at least does not pose as a commentary on the content of "The Beatles: Get Back." But for a streaming service that is awfully shy about presenting some of its ow...

Review: Out of the Blue

Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City Review: The Reboot Wisely Trades Action For Horror, But It's Not Enough

Whatever you want to call the Paul W.S. Anderson "Resident Evil" film series, I don't think you can accurately call it a series of horror films. Sure, there are plenty of horror elements in those movies — they're about zombies, after all — but at the end of the day, Anderson, no stranger to horror having helmed the excellent "Event Horizon," was more interested in action. As a result, Anderson's films were shoot-em-ups that allowed star Milla Jovovich to flip around in slow-motion like she was a...

Hawkeye Review: Jeremy Renner And Hailee Steinfeld Are Superb In Marvel's Street-Level Superhero Series

House Of Gucci Review: Lady Gaga Does Her Best Dracula Voice In Ridley Scott's Wicked Satire Of The Rich And Clueless

It's Lifestyles of the Rich and Clueless in Ridley Scott's "House of Gucci," an odd duck of a film that wants to serve you both a scrumptious gourmet meal and greasy fast food in the same bite. There's a wobbly, unbalanced quality to the entire thing, as Scott and company try to make something akin to a prestige drama cosplaying as a trashy soap opera. And yet it's hard not to have fun with everything on display here — all the glitz, all the glam, all the bad accents. I have long had a sneaking ...
