New Releases: Bros – With all of the big Hollywood romantic comedies always being a heterosexual love affair, it’s really refreshing to see this new big Universal Pictures-backed film from producer Judd Apatow and they’ve picked the perfect person to lead it in Billy Eichner.

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.

New Releases: Space Jam: A New Legacy – I feel like a sequel or reboot of the NBA and Looney Tunes collaboration fantasy action film Space Jam was inevitable and with Lebron James being the modern equivalent to Michael Jordan, sidestepping Kobe Bryant who was another player in that echelon, and with King James being …
