In a Violent Nature Review | An Artistic Slasher with a Unique Hook

19h ago
Stanley Kubrick once told The New York Times, "Man isn't a noble savage, he's an ignoble savage. He is irrational, brutal, weak, silly, unable to be objective about anything where his own interests are involved that about sums it up. I'm interested in the brutal and violent nature of man because it's a true picture of him. And any attempt to create social institutions on a false view of the nature of man is probably doomed to failure. The new horror film In a Violent Nature is practically a tone poem about that quote, and has gotten a near-perfect score with critics as a result ..read more

Tires Review | Netflix's Anti-Woke Comedy Has Bounce but Grows Tiresome
MovieWeb | Movie Reviews
by Greg Archer
1d ago
Shane Gillis fans will love Tires. The new Netflix comedy, which the comedian self-financed, can be a thigh-slapping, bust-out-loud funny experience. Likewise, lovers of Cumtown and the charming Stavros Halkias will likely enjoy the series. For everybody else not so much. Its bound to suffice as far as bromedies go, though. Theres a gaggle of mostly straight, white, angsty, misogynistic, probably racist, talk-too-loud fellas bouncing ideas around in a beleaguered tire shop, but like the tread on a set of wheels reaching the 50,000-mile mark, the humor and the premise eventually wears thin ..read more

The Garfield Movie answers the burning question that has bedeviled fans since the Monday-hating, lasagna-loving, tubby orange tabby first graced newspaper comic strips nearly 50 years ago.

Garfield gets a delightfully wacky origin story in his first completely CGI animated movie adventure. Garfield's forced off the couch and into the bustling outside world, where he must settle the debt of his long-lost father to an aggrieved Persian kitty gangster ..read more

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga Review | A Spectacular Prequel with a Miscast Lead
MovieWeb | Movie Reviews
by Julian Roman
4d ago
George Miller returns to his post-apocalyptic wasteland of despots, desperation, and bloody vengeance in a roaring prequel that doesn't try to replicate its magnificent predecessor. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is a vastly different animal than the non-stop, practical effects adrenaline rush of Fury Road. A more conventional, chapter-driven narrative frames an epic battle over limited resources as grotesque villains clamor for action-packed supremacy. What's missing? Star Anya Taylor-Joy is nearly mute in a surprisingly downbeat performance. She's the film's weakest link, with almost no dialogue an ..read more

The Big Cigar Review | An Astonishing True Story Told with Style
MovieWeb | Movie Reviews
by Julian Roman
1w ago
The Big Cigar tells the astonishing true story of how the New Hollywood producers of Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces helped Black Panthers leader Huey P. Newton escape to Cuba in 1974. The six-episode Apple TV+ limited series, adapted from the 2012 Playboy magazine article by journalist Joshuah Bearman, strikes different thematic tones depending on the characters' perspectives. Newton running from abhorrent racism, police brutality, and the FBI as America's most wanted is deadly serious, while rich Hollywood moguls and their actor acolytes have a degree of dark humor. Some may be disappointed ..read more

You wont be pulling out a hanky and weeping over the sentiment in Babes. Unless youre crying with laughter, because thats highly probable, too. The hilarious and smartly written comedy is directed by Pamela Adlon, the brainchild behind FXs superb series Better Things and the actress who brought a sense of fresh invigoration to the Showtime series Californication. Shes also a stellar voice talent, having lent her unique style to Bobs Burgers, Rick and Morty, and King of the Hill, which is about to 2.0 itself and enter a growing sea of other reboots ..read more
