Mary Poppins Returns is getting mixed reviews, but critics would probably say the same about the original if it was released today. It’s hard to not be cynical about this kind of candy-coated Disney whimsy, but what’s the point?

In other words, if you go into Mary Poppins Returns expecting anything other than singing penguins and dancing lamp-lighters, maybe the movie ISN’T the problem. (B)

MOVIE REVIEW: Why You NEED to See “Can You Ever Forgive Me”

Melissa McCarthy doesn’t have the best track record.

I’d understand if you were tempted to ignore her latest, Can You Ever forgive Me, but DON’T. In fact, here are my Top 3 Reasons why you NEED to see it.
1) See Can You Ever Forgive Me to get to know its director Continue reading →

5. I didn’t think Jonah Hill did anything between films that didn’t involve a bong, but I was wrong. He actually wrote and directed a movie called Mid90’s which is far better than it deserves to be, since you’re just watching a kid get his butt kicked repeatedly. Continue reading →
