Quick Take: FLY SO FAR
The film as a whole is straightforward and unremarkable, but the subject matter infuriating.
Quick Take: EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE
The musical as a whole is a bit obvious and saccharine, but still slick and captivating.
Quick Take: EARTH: MUTED
We learn pretty much nothing about the alarming issues behind and how we all could be affected.
Perhaps a tad convoluted and cold at times, the series remained compelling throughout its relatively short run.
Review: OLIVER TWIST
David Lean’s take on the Dickens classic remains the definitive adaptation, one that inspired subsequent interpretations.
Quick Take: JJ+E
Formulaic, but attractively staged and scored, well attuned to younger audiences.
Quick Take: DUNE: PART ONE
Muscular, towering and grimly serious, the film has everything except genuine thrills and emotions.
Quick Take: MALIGNANT
Absolutely ludicrous, but James Wan is clearly having a grand old time.
