'Zombieland' rises again with long-delayed sequel


Created: Fri, 18 Oct 2019 13:41:46 GMT

Author:

Never mind the rules of Zombieland. The rules governing Hollywood dictate that anything successful gets a sequel, even if you have to wait a decade to tap into it. Those have been fruitful years for the stars of "Zombieland: Double Tap," providing key assets to a movie that offers gore, comedy and just plain silliness, but falls somewhat short of a complete meal.

Created: Fri, 18 Oct 2019 13:28:04 GMT

Author:

"Maleficent" wasn't especially good, but it scared up enough money to conjure a sequel. Happily, this five-years-later follow-up, "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil," flies a bit higher, building on the central relationship while adding Michelle Pfeiffer's regal presence as a killer queen.

Paul Rudd pulls double duty in 'Living With Yourself'


Created: Thu, 17 Oct 2019 18:06:40 GMT

Author:

Paul Rudd does double duty in "Living With Yourself," a bizarrely twisty, highly inventive dark comedy that, among other things, considers the elusive quest for happiness. The premise, frankly, really doesn't do this Netflix series justice, as the producers somehow keep pulling rabbits -- and unexpected wrinkles -- out of hats.

'Jojo Rabbit' uses Hitler to awkwardly convey anti-hate message


Created: Fri, 18 Oct 2019 14:35:39 GMT

Author:

Described as "an anti-hate satire," "Jojo Rabbit" seeks to strike a delicate balance in using a Hitler-obsessed boy -- during Nazi Germany's final throes -- to convey that message. The result is an awkward, uneven film, with writer-director Taika Waititi conjuring some touching moments, but unable to pull off the magic act this "Rabbit" trick requires.

Author:

Using the graphic novel as the scaffolding for a dense, brooding HBO series, "Watchmen" grafts enough new threads onto its existing mythology to make "Westworld" look like a 1970s sitcom by comparison.

'Bourne' again: 'Treadstone' moves thriller legacy into TV


Created: Mon, 14 Oct 2019 19:05:02 GMT

Author:

The Jason Bourne movies brought stylized violence to Robert Ludlum's nearly-40-year-old literary thrillers, with Matt Damon as the killing machine who turns on his handlers. The mythology of those films provides a sturdy if somewhat messy foundation for "Treadstone," a USA series that also emphasizes action, while slowly teasing out a case about sleeper agents and clandestine operations.

'Why We Hate' examines roots of tribalism and violence


Created: Fri, 11 Oct 2019 13:26:27 GMT

Author:

"Why We Hate" can't entirely make up its mind about what it wants to be: case studies of modern polarization and partisanship; a historic dive into the roots of bigotry and violence; or a science-driven, anthropological exploration of the topic. The result is an intriguing but somewhat muddled multi-part series, distinguished by a producer roster that includes directors Steven Spielberg and Alex Gibney.

'Living Undocumented' puts faces on families grappling with immigration system


Created: Thu, 03 Oct 2019 12:55:39 GMT

Author:

"Living Undocumented" is a passionate piece of advocacy filmmaking, one that -- for all the tears and heart-wrenching moments -- will likely end up preaching to the choir. The Netflix presentation nevertheless puts faces on the toll of US immigration policy, while making a point of noting the role of past administrations as well as the current one.

'The Laundromat' puts poor spin on Panama Papers case


Created: Fri, 27 Sep 2019 12:55:33 GMT

Author:

"The Laundromat" makes a pointed political statement, while spinning out a garbled mess of a movie. In the process, director Steven Soderbergh mostly squanders a cast toplined by Meryl Streep, in a Netflix film that plays like a darkly satiric connection of vignettes that lost something -- mostly, a coherent narrative -- in the rinse cycle.
