Yes Day
(Streaming on Netflix) Jennifer Garner is one of those rare Hollywood commodities that can turn out a fantastic action flick and then turn around and give us a wonderful family film. And she has done it once again with Yes Day. This is the movie of kids' dreams and parents' nightmares. As much as I think I would like to give my kids a "yes" day, I'm almost positive that they would use it to try to kill me. I got proof of this while watching this film and my young girls kept...

Raya and the Last Dragon
(In theaters). I was excited from the first moment I saw the teaser poster for this film. I couldn't wait to see it. I just hoped it would live up to all of my wild expectations. It did. This movie is awesome. It is funny, sentimental, inspiring, sad, powerful, and beautiful. You'll spend a lot of time laughing, a lot of time cheering on Raya, and a lot of time holding your breath as she faces difficult challenges head on. Awkwafina...

Coming 2 America
(Streaming on Amazon Prime). It's been 33 long years since the Prince of Zamunda went to Queens to find his bride. Along the way there were rumors of a possible sequel, but nothing came of those. Until now. It was worth the wait. I am happy to tell you that this film is amazing! It may even be better than the first one. It is filled with cameos, laughs, and Easter eggs. (My favorite being a painting on the wall while Akeem's son is being interviewed). ...

Chaos Walking
(In theaters). This film is based on a trilogy of books released around 2010. That was the apex of the Young Adult dystopian craze. Eleven years on, we still get a good reminder every now and again at how many wild and thought-provoking books explored that genre. Imagine living in a place where your thoughts were always on display for everyone to hear, but you had no idea what the women around you were thinking. A difference like that could cause some serious issues. This film explores several of those issues. ...

Boogie
(In theaters). I love a good sports movie. Especially one that centers on basketball. At the same time, I hate bad sports movies with the passion of a thousand burning suns. My only hard rule for a sports film is, whatever sport you choose, make sure you are showing the sport being played properly and well. This is a bad sports movie. I found nothing of value in this film. The dialogue is choppy and cringe-worthy, the basketball looks like it is being played by a bunch of actors,...

Boss Level
(Streaming on Hulu). Sometimes all you want in a movie is a bunch of crazy people trying to kill each other in crazy ways. If you find yourself in that mood, you should immediately sit down and watch Boss Level. Is this movie going to stimulate your critical thinking? No. Is it going to give you all the feels? No. Is it going to punch you in the face, kick you while you are falling to the ground and then try to blow you up? Oh, yeah. While there...

Moxie
(Streaming on Netflix) This is Amy Poehler's second time directing a film for Netflix, and she has done an outstanding job with this one. This film feels like a cross between Book Smart and Eighth Grade. It's not as funny and rambunctious as Book Smart, and it isn't as awkward or emotional as Eighth Grade, but it has an abundance of all of those elements. The cast is outstanding. Hadley Robinson gives a powerful and moving performance. Her character is deep and lovable, even when she is pushing everyone away. The rest of...

Tom and Jerry
(Theaters and HBO Max) It's hard to believe that a franchise that is more than 80 years old could still find a way to be relevant and entertaining today, but this one manages to do just that. It goes to show that slapstick is still funny and an acceptable form of comedy. While I would never suggest this is "Animated Movie of the Year" level, I will say this is a fun and entertaining film that the whole family will enjoy. And in a time where good family films have been scarce, this...

The United States Vs. Billie Holiday
(Streaming exclusively on Hulu) If you are unaware of Billie Holiday, I highly encourage you to do some research into her life and legacy. She is nothing short of a national treasure, but she also had to deal with many demons in her life. Many of those demons were forced on her by some of the terrible people that surrounded her, some of the demons were self-inflicted. This film centers around one of her most powerful songs and how the U.S. Government went after her to try to stop her from singing it....

The Father
(Limited theatrical run) If you have ever watched a loved one struggle with dementia, you know how heartbreaking it is to see them lose their grip on reality. It is a brutal disease that takes the greatest among us and whittles them down to the equivalent of an unteachable child. Yet, you can see in their eyes that, somehow, they know there is a forgotten world in which they still live. Portraying dementia on screen to this point has been a very difficult task. Some films have done a decent job...

Crisis
(Limited theatrical run) Opioids are a dangerous thing. They are highly addictive and they are highly coveted. Because of that they have become big business, both legal and illegal. Crisis tells the story of the effect that opioids have on different people in different ways. One is a scientist asked to manipulate his numbers so a new opioid can hit the legal market, one is an undercover cop trying to stop the rampant spread of illegal sales, and one is a grieving mother who had no idea her son was close enough to the drug world to...

I Care a Lot
(Streaming on Netflix) This is one of the stranger movies I've seen in quite some time. In fact, it is so different from your typical story that I watched it twice in two days just to be sure I saw what I thought I saw. And the second time around I confirmed my suspicions. This is a film that you will enjoy immensely and then feel like you need a shower when it is done. This is a rare film in which there is no protagonist. You have nobody to root for. Every...

Flora and Ulysses
(Streaming on Disney+) If you are looking for a cute, fun, and funny movie to watch with the whole family this weekend, look no further than Flora and Ulysses. This is an adorable tale that will keep you smiling and laughing the whole time. Matilda Lawler (Flora) is a delight to watch. She does a great job of moving the story forward in a compelling and entertaining way. She also has great chemistry with the rest of the cast. The other characters are all interesting and unique, even if a couple of them...

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar
(Available on VOD) It feels like there haven't been any decent comedies released in several months. And the reason is because it is true. The last time a film was released that could be considered a comedy was in November of 2020. Maybe that is why this movie feels so refreshing. If we were back to a normal theatrical release schedule, this would be an average comedy at best. It would probably pull in about $40 million and by the end of the year it would be forgotten. Well, these aren't normal times....

Judas and the Black Messiah
This is one of those films that is almost amazing. It comes so close in so many ways to being the kind of film that would win huge awards, but it just misses the mark. I'm sure this film will garner some nominations, but nothing like what it could have done if it had reached its full potential. The best part of the film is the acting. All of the primary cast deliver great performances. They are able to draw you in and make you feel for and understand their character's motivations. The...
