New Releases: Pinocchio – In a kind of surprising move from Disney, their brand new live-action update of an animated classic, done by ImageMovers’ creator Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks, gets the Disney Day release on their streaming service and no theatrical release. After watching the film, it is even more surprising because it …

New Releases: Me Time – If I’m being totally honest, Kevin Hart has been working at a 50/50 for me with his Netflix original movies. I adore his work on the comedy drama Fatherhood, a sweet and endearing story about a suddenly single father dealing with a newborn baby but The Man From Toronto was a bland …

New Releases: Day Shift – I guess Jamie Foxx had signed a multi-picture deal with Netflix because we already got the sci-fi action flick Project Power in 2020, co-starring Joseph Gordon Levitt and directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman who coincidentally directed the next film on this list. Well, Foxx is back for more …

New Releases: Bullet Train – As far as fun action flicks go, I have been looking forward to this new high-octane thriller ever since I saw the trailer because it stars a game-looking Brad Pitt who appears to be having the time of his life and it’s directed by David Leitch who hasn’t made a disappointing …

New Releases: Where The Crawdads Sing – There’s something about this new drama mystery that has me absolutely disinterested and I have to say it stems from the pretty lacklustre trailer that I saw in theatres for it. Maybe it is also the fact that this ad screened before a showing of Lightyear in front …

New Releases: Minions: The Rise Of Gru – The kids are all most likely chomping at the bit for this new entry into this really popular animated franchise from Illumination Entertainment and there are probably parents out there that are bracing for the visual nails on the chalkboard that these films are for them. I …

New Releases: Elvis – I have to be honest, I am not the biggest fan of the works of filmmaker Baz Luhrmann but the more I saw the trailers for this new biopic of the original King Of Rock n Roll the more interested in it I became. It isn’t for Tom Hanks either, who kind of looks …

New Releases: Crimes Of The Future – Cronenberg is back in a big bad way and I really can’t contain my excitement because, from who I’m hearing, he is back to his body horror ways and just judging by the trailer it’s going to mess people up. Of course, my guy Viggo is in the …

New Releases: Firestarter – Doing Stephen King adaptation is really dicey at any time because, in this avid reader and huge fan’s mind, they haven’t had the best transition time from page to screen and some of them have gone beyond being disappointing and gone to the depths of being downright awful. This adaptation has …
