Bohemian Rhapsody Leaves Too Much “Bio” out of the Pic | Ro Reviews

Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic based on the legendary band, Queen. This story picks up shortly before Freddy Mercury, born Farrokh Bulsara of Parsi descent, joins guitarist/astrophysics scholar Brian May (Gwilym Lee) and drummer/dental student Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) with a parking lot audition engagingly depicted with just the right amount of humor and irony; and […]

Can You Ever Forgive Me? Is a “Must See” this Award Season | Ro Reviews

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a biopic about biographer, Lee Israel, and her astonishing fall from literary grace and slide into infamy. I say without hyperbole, Melissa McCarthy as the hard-drinking, foul-mouthed and abrasive Lee Israel is her best performances ever. • Lee Israel (McCarthy) is a writer of biographies. She’s a woman with little interest […]

Home Entertainment: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” | Ro Reviews

Writers Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) and son, Jonathan Kasdan (In the Land of Women), drew on the elder Kasdan’s cinematic knowledge of Han to mesh it with facts and story elements from the Han Solo Trilogy books in order create a script that a cross between a Firefly episode and The Man with No Name.  […]

In Life Itself, Perseverance is the Point | Ro Reviews

lifeitself_day11-889.CR2

Don’t see Life Itself if you aren’t ready to fully engage and be in your feelings. Seriously. Life Itself is a full-on drama. It’s built on the highs, lows, drama, and unexpected melodrama of introspection played out in three acts; or rather five chapters. It has no “just-for-a-laugh” moments, no throw-away tension breakers, or mere transitions between […]

The Happytime Murders | Ro Reviews

The Happytime Murders is set in an alternative Los Angeles where humans reluctantly live alongside puppets. When someone starts murdering cast members of 90s children program, The Happytime Gang, disgraced former LAPD detective Phil Phillips (voice: Bill Barretta) – puppet and low-rent private investigator living the pseudo-noir life must join forces with his former partner Det. Connie […]

Juliet, Naked: A Romance That Successfully Crosses The Digital Divide | Ro Reviews

There haven’t really been that many romantic comedies this year. At least, not the type that hasn’t felt like they’re faithfully following a formula. Then I saw Juliet, Naked starring Rose Byrne, Ethan Hawke and Chris Dowd. Annie Platt (Rose Bryne), a museum curator in a seaside English town, is in a relationship with Duncan Thomas  (Chris O’Dowd) a […]

‘Sorry To Bother You’ Is The Satire We Need | Spoiler-Free Review

Lakeith Stanfield stars as Cassius Green in Boots Riley's SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, an Annapurna Pictures release.

Pair lush surrealistic imagery (that’s a punch in the face all its own) with a script satirically tackling  tokenism, code-switching, gentrification, slave-mentality (and literal slavery), inequality, nihilism, corporate greed, selling out, and the onslaught of sociopolitical and economic anxiety that ultimately leads to a dystopian hellscape for those who can’t afford utopia with insightful skill, […]

Early Man Scores In Any Age

Early Man Still

[slide-anything id=’9912′] The weekend may belong to Black Panther, but if you’re looking for a PG-rated movie Early Man from Writer/Director Nick Park has the stop-action claymation sports comedy you’ve been waiting on. Yes, I said sports comedy. Set among prehistoric predators and a still-evolving Earth, Early Man pits Stone Age Dug, his sidekick Hognob and his tribe against Bronze Age invader, […]

Goodbye Christopher Robin | Movie Review

Quick Take: Goodbye Christopher Robin is a wonderfully atmospheric costume drama that tells it’s story in stages. In places it fails to have the actors dig too far beneath the surface of the people but, despite this shortfall, it illuminates Alan Milne’s psychological troubles in insightfully relevant context. It’s a bittersweet glimpse into a dysfunctional family […]

Only The Brave | Movie Review

Quick Take: Hollywood is almost as fond of reenactments of tragic events as it is of geopolitical disaster movies and the two are frequently treated with the same lackadaisical regard when it comes to the “true” portion of the tagline: “based on true events.” But Director Joseph Kosinski created a heart-rending dramatization in Only The Brave without needlessly inserting composite […]

The Snowman | Movie Review

Quick Take: The Snowman coming to theaters is not the film teased in the trailer. This is not a horror movie. This is not Harry Hole detective story. This mishmash of a script should not be mistaken for a story derived from a Joe Nesbø plotline. I don’t know exactly what director Tomas Alfredson hoped to accomplish by stripping all the compelling and enriching character and story elements that […]
