Pinocchio (2022) Review

Pinocchio – A live action remake, this classic fairy tale barely resembles the original. With useless modernization and an over reliance on CGI, Pinocchio is soulless and disappointing.

Not Okay Review

Not Okay is a painfully relevant and prophetic look in the mirror for influencer culture. There is no sympathy given to the main character and the not so subtle social commentary forces the audience to look in the mirror themselves.

Nope

Nope – Following in the footsteps of its predecessors Get Out and Up, Nope is a bold and suspenseful story packed with plenty of Peele’s trademark thrills. Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer headline this shocking and subversive horror thriller along with a talented supporting cast of Keith David and Steven Yeun. Peele manages to keep the audience guessing as they lean forward in their seats waiting for the next scene or recoil in horror at what they just witnessed.

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Minions: The Rise of Gru – An excellently animated origin story for the world’s best villain, The Rise of Gru is simplistic and well intentioned, but is shallower than most children’s movies. #Gentleminions

Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder is a hilarious and over-the-top comedy, with plenty of suggestive and outright adult humor that will keep the audience in stitches throughout most of the two-hour run time. With Christian Bale and Russell Crowe making their debut in the MCU plus a Guardians of the Galaxy Guest spot, Love and Thunder is brimming with charisma and pure acting talent. But star power and witty writing aside, there just isn’t enough comic book in this movie to really propel anything in the MCU’s Phase 4 forward. It doesn’t introduce new characters (good and bad), it doesn’t leave a breadcrumb for the new big bad guy (good and bad), and it certainly doesn’t have enough breathing room for any one single character to have a meaningful or lasting impact on the story it just tried to tell. While the audience may be laughing to tears throughout certain parts of the movie, it is a cramped and fast movie that does leave some things to be desired.
