Marvel’s ‘What If…?’ Early Buzz: Surprising Twists and Thrilling Action Shine in This MCU Remix

While most of the reactions are rather positive, there are some shortcomings to be found.

‘Stillwater’ Review: Emotions Run Deep in the Surprising Matt Damon Blue-Collar Crime Drama

Stillwater has the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines premise that is sure to immediately get eyes rolling: an American student is convicted of the murder of her roommate in a foreign country, and her father will have to take the law into his own hands to try to liberate her. It sounds like Amanda Knox meets blue-collar Taken, and it’s surely the kind of sordid, sentimental thriller that is barely worth a second thought. And yet. Stillwater surprises, with emotions that run deeper and a subdued ...

‘The Bad Batch’ Pays a Price in the Thrilling “War-Mantle”

So much of the Empire’s structure has been altered that it has elevated into a more unpredictable opponent. For former Clone Force 99, the deviant Bad Batch (Dee Bradley Baker), this is overwhelming. Powered by a versatile The Bad Batch writing debut by Damani Johnson paired with rapid-fire action under Steward Lee’s direction, “War-Mantle” is a thrilling action-packed dive that escalates into major consequences with one more episode toward the season conclusion. The episode opens with the c...

‘Vivo’ Review: A Charming Animated Film That Doesn’t Hit The High Notes

Watching the new animated film Vivo inspires two thoughts, one of which is far less controversial than the other. The first is that timing really is everything. This Latin American animated musical about the power of any one song was apparently pitched over a decade ago, but coming a few years after Pixar’s Coco means that Vivo feels unfortunately like a very slow runner-up to a creative arms race. The second thought, and the one that may inspire horrified reactions or angry comments, is that p...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Review: James Gunn Serves a Splatter-Filled Superhero Romp With a Sprinkling of Sweetness

Warner Bros. has prided itself in making “director-driven” DC superhero movies, and rarely has that directive paid off as gloriously as it has with James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad. We’ve read the headlines at this point: Gunn was given free rein to do whatever he wanted with his follow-up (but not a sequel) to David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad, including indulging in R-rated mayhem and hiring Peter Capaldi to wear tracksuits and say “fuck” as much as he wants. And boy, does Gunn deliver. With t...

‘Jungle Cruise’ Review: A Decent Adventure That Owes a Lot to Other Films

Considering its own inspiration, it’s somewhat surprising that the Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland took so long to become the inspiration for a movie of its own. The opening-day attraction was partially inspired by the 1951 romantic comedy/adventure The African Queen, bringing two of the greatest stars of the era, Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, together. So now, things have come as full circle as is humanly possible with Jungle Cruise, a romantic comedy/adventure that brings together t...

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Embarks on a Dull Spice Recovery Mission in the Filler Episode “Infested”

Filler can be a word that’s flung around carelessly. It can be misapplied to episodes in a series that aren’t meant to propel the narrative forward, but simply breathe in the character dynamics. Sometimes filler isn’t literally filler, but a method to load emotional investment and simmer the stakes. Filler can be viewed as technique rather than flaw. However, while not gratingly bad, “Infested” (directed by Saul Ruiz and written by Amanda Rose Muñoz) wears the worst elements of filler. It’s a s...
