the woman in the window review

It’s been a long time since I’ve watched a new movie that could qualify for the “so bad it’s good” designation, but The Woman in the Window comes pretty darn close. Already infamous for being long-delayed (it was supposed to open in theaters in 2019) and for its extensive reshoots, the Joe Wright-directed adaptation of the bestselling novel arrives on Netflix and robs a bunch of talented people of their dignity in the process. Here is proof that you can hire a skilled director, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, and a killer cast and still end up with junk. But is it at least entertaining junk? No, not really. You might get a cheap thrill from the absurdity of it all, though.

Finding the Mother Tree

If you’re a casting director on the hunt for an actress to play a specialist who needs to crack a mysterious form of communication from an unexpected species, Amy Adams is your gal.

Except this time, it’ll be with trees instead of aliens. Oh, and this one is based on a true story. Get the details below. Read More »

It’s been nearly 14 years since Disney released the fantasy comedy Enchanted, taking a meta approach to their animated fairytales with Amy Adams playing a naive cartoon princess lost in the bustling metropolis of New York as a flesh-and-blood person.

zack snyder's justice league review

Is Zack Snyder’s Justice League a superhero movie disguised as a fantasy epic, or a fantasy flick cosplaying as a superhero saga? The answer seems to be somewhere in the middle. One thing is for certain: Zack Snyder was not trying to make just another comic book sequel when he set out to make Justice League. After leaving the project only to see so much of his work reshot by Joss Whedon, Snyder has returned to reassemble the movie he originally intended to make. The end result is more akin to The Lord of the Rings than Batman v Superman – a film about humans and fantastical creatures from various kingdoms joining forces to fight against an ancient, all-powerful evil that threatens to plunge the world into darkness.

hillbilly elegy trailer

In the fallout of the 2016 election, J. D. Vance’s memoir Hillbilly Elegy became a nationwide hit, as media pundits sought to understood President Trump’s victory and influence over the rust belt states. The notion of the “Real America” became a hot-button topic, and one that Vance’s memoir supposedly captured in all of its depictions of economic anxiety and white working class poverty. Which means it was ripe for a sentimental adaptation by Ron Howard, with none other than Oscar nominees Glenn Close and Amy Adams chewing the scenery and donning bad wigs and old-age make-up to earn their long-awaited trophies.
