Baby Driver (R)

Written and directed by Edgar Wright and starring Ansel Elgort (Baby), Kevin Spacy and a host of others, Baby Driver is about a young man being coerced into working for a crime boss as a getaway driver. Baby has to finish one last job before he is free; but, of course, after the job is finished he gets sucked right back in.

An action/crime/love story, Baby Driver combines elements of many movies seen before, but is brought together in a unique way, driven by music with a few unexpected events. If you enjoyed True Romance, you should enjoy this.  There is enough action, suspense and “twist” to hold your interest all the way through to the final scene.

The acting is above par for an action film because Elgort is accompanied by heavy hitters. Along with Spacey, John Hamm, Lily James and Jamie Foxx help to round out the talented cast.

Wright does an outstanding job directing the heck outta this movie. Every action, every beat, every movement; down to the last cue is so well choreographed, thoughtful and well executed.  Elgort was the perfect choice for the lead here as he is trained in ballet and added much youthful exuberance and a sense of fun throughout the story.  Wright gets 10s across the board for coordinating the music with the action and using this well thought out, enjoyable score to move this film along.  You can feel that this man loves an action film and had a great time making this movie.  Also, as far as Wright’s writing, I need to say that it didn’t go unnoticed that this movie does not rely on or feature one unnecessary naked boob, sex scene or the done-to-death cliché strip club scene.  The movie is pretty clean and chaste (aside from all the killing and shooting) with the exception of one pretty vile character and his potty mouth.

There’s not a lot not to like here, but the movie isn’t perfect. The action sequences will leave you breathless and are beautifully, beautifully shot, but the love story stuff seemed to drag out and brought the overall energy of an otherwise vibrant movie down.  Of course I wanted more action, but I suppose without the love story, Baby Driver just would have been an action/car chase/crime movie, and that would have been just fine with me.

Baby Driver earned 8 bloops out of 10. It is a great movie that is great to see in a theater if you’re so inclined.  It is an enjoyable summer treat to take your mind off the woes of the world for a while.  The action is so entertaining I would watch it again – like right now.

All Eyez on Me

Written by Jeremy Haft, Eddie Gonzalez and Steven Bagatourian and starring first-time actor Demetrius Shipp, Jr., All Eyez on Me tells the “true and untold” story of controversial rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur. It is a musical biopic that covers Tupac’s short, 25 years of life. The title is the same as Tupac’s fourth studio album released in 1996.

The notable characters in this movie are well cast. This is Mr. Shipp’s debut acting role, and what a role to debut with!  He didn’t just get this job because at times, in the right lighting, at the right angle, he can be a dead ringer for Tupac. He beat out over 4,000 actors to land this role, and delivers Tupac not only physically, but emotionally.  Suge Knight looks like Suge Knight. Dr. Dre looks like Dr. Dre, Shock G looks so much like Shock G it is crazy, etc., etc.  The acting is solid, in general, and the women here stand out; most notably,Danai Gurira, who plays Tupac’s mom, Afeni Shakur. Her acting is remniscent of the great Viola Davis’; “snotty cry” and all.

Problems do exist with this film.  John Singleton was originally attached to this project but backed out because he did not agree with how Tupac is portrayed here.  He directed Tupac in Poetic Justice, so it would be reasonable that someone who actually knew the man steer.  He is still hopeful he can bring his own version of Tupac’s story to the big screen.  The less seasoned Benny Boom stepped in to direct.  And Jada Pinkett disagrees with the poetic license taken regarding the portrayal of her relationship with Tupac.

Despite Tupac’s life being cut short the man went through and accomplished so much.  At 2 hours and 20 minutes, the film covers so many events in Tupac’s life it loses focus at times. There are events you want more details about and times when you could do with less. (The same holds true for the music at times as well.)  There are so many bits and pieces squeezed in to this story that the script feels “heavy,” somewhat overworked and very choppy as it jumps from one event to another, and on to another, then another.  Unlike Tupac’s music, it does not flow effortlessly.  It is lacking in soul and depth. It feels as if we are going down a bumpy, bulleted list of Tupac’s life rather than living out his experiences with him.

I understand how Singleton would disagree with this portrayal of Tupac as this movie accentuates the lowlights and overlooks many of the highlights of Tupac’s life, like Maya Angelou lecturing him to tears or any of the powerful speeches he delivered, or even more of the jailhouse interviews he granted.  Because of the imbalance between the “good” and the “bad,” the audience doesn’t really get to experience the complexity of the man as strongly as they could have.  Conversely, the powerful interpretation of by whom and how he was raised and how his upbringing factored into the person he became is done exceptionally well.

All Eyez on Me earned 7 out of 10 bloops.  It is a good movie, worth seeing; particularly if you are a Tupac fan.  Even if you’re not a fan, you may enjoy it and younger fans may learn things they never knew about the man.   We all know it does not end well for Tupac going in, but the end is very moving.  Despite its flaws, All Eyez on Me pays great tribute to a very talented and complex individual.  Happy Birthday Pac!

It Comes at Night

Starring Joel Edgerton, Kelvin Harrison, Jr. and Christopher Abbott, It Comes at Night is a horror movie/mystery about a family living in an isolated home in a desolate, wooded area trying to survive after some unnamed, unexplained, unnatural threat seems to have wiped out a large portion of mankind.   The father (Edgerton) has established some sort of domestic order with his wife and son (to the degree that this is possible under the circumstances) that is tested when a desperate younger family (Abbot & co.) arrives seeking refuge.

The movie is about the risks we take when interacting with other people; inviting them into our lives and our homes.  Who can you trust? – Do you even have the capacity to trust anyone?  The tension among and between these two families as their relationships develop is what drives the film.

The movie is well written, with enough stomach churning suspense to categorize it as a mystery and keep you engaged throughout.  You can feel the strain this family is under, living day to day locked inside of a house to stay safe against an unseen killer.  The score is quite good and sets the mood and pace of the film well.

The acting is strong.  Edgerton is convincing as a man doing everything, anything and whatever he can to keep his family safe.  If he wasn’t a true survivalist before this virus hit, it certainly turned him into one.  Harrison plays the sensitive, compassionate character who attempts to balance out his father’s machismo; sometimes unsuccessfully.

The beauty of this movie is that we never learn the origin of the virus, how widespread it may be, or even where these characters live.  This is part of what makes this movie original and very smart.  There is no back story.  We know all we need to know.  There is a virus, it is fatal, it is airborne and will kill you if you come into contact with someone who is infected, and it is a pronounced cause of tremendous stress in these people’s lives.  The “it” that comes at night is the number one thing that occupies their minds and their lives, with room for very little else; and that is how the audience feels while watching. There is no concern for questions to be answered because we are all-consumed by the “It.” The question becomes, does the movie need to explain more to satisfy the viewer?  And the answer to this question is subjective.

It Comes at Night earned 7.5 out of 10 bloops.  The movie is better than good, but not without problems, and still worth seeing; particularly if you are a horror film fan.  If you like a story fed to you that follows a formula of beginning-middle-end, with all the answers provided and an ending wrapped in a neat little bow, you will not care for this movie.  There is some really creative work here in the writing, the acting, the makeup, the camera work… but proceed with caution, because as much as I liked it, I cannot wholeheartedly recommend you pay to see it in the theater.

If Beverly Hills 90210 (and/or 90210), The O.C., Gossip Girl, Secret Life of An American Teenager, etc., were mashed up with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed and Angel, you would get Riverdale.  The story line and characters are plucked from the Archie comics, but dark; with secrets, lies and murder at the core of the plot line.

Wow!  Whoever tells you this show is outstanding is not pulling your leg.  It is dystopian and creepy and will make you shudder at times.  The way it is shot and the use of color is absolutely beautiful and depressing at the same time.  It is well written, well acted, well-everythinged.  It is important to watch as it is timely and relevant.  There is one episode that will leave you gasping for air when what has occurred hits you.  Excellence.  Makes me want to write a full review.  May the standard of quality be upheld and it not run past its prime.  Cheers!

The Wedding Plan

Starring Dafi Alferon (as Michal), The Wedding Plan is an Israeli-made movie (in Hebrew with English subtitles) billed as a romantic comedy about an Orthodox Jewish woman whose engagement falls through; so she decides to keep the wedding hall booked because she has faith that God is going to provide her with a husband in the 22 days between “today” and the 8th day of Hanukkah.

This may sound like some silly movie that might star Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Aniston or Katherine Heigel and it would be a good movie to remake in an American version. But in modern day Israel (I’m no authority, but I don’t really think Orthodox Jews give a care about the date on the calendar when it comes to their traditions) I would imagine that an unmarried 31 year old Orthodox Jewish woman needs to find herself a husband quite immediately.

Written and directed by Rama Burshtein, the premise has potential to be very funny but is also what makes this a tricky movie to navigate.  The amount of energy one must use to temporarily suspend all Western traditions, hang-ups, modern beliefs, etc., and put themselves in this woman’s shoes and into this movie is taxing.  I was able to do it for a majority of the movie, but toward the end I just couldn’t continue.

Unfortunately, at times, it felt as though (and I could be wrong) something was lost in translation between the actors speaking/acting and the subtitles. The movie contains very few laughs for a comedy, but when you “get it,” it can be very funny.  There is really very little romance.  It is more like an anti-romantic comedy because of the way Michal chooses to select a husband and the jerks she comes across while looking.  While the movie is about stepping out on faith, what I saw was this woman who almost appears to have lost control of her reality and at times seems pitiful and desperate.  That desperation made it difficult to laugh at her after a while.  Watching her almost became painful.

There is an absence of visible outside pressure to marry in the film – certainly a misstep. As a point of reference consider a rom/com which was both romantic and funny, such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  Toula’s family took every opportunity to apply the necessary cultural pressure; they told her she looked old, she looked bad, she needed to get married, etc., and it was funny.  Here, Michal’s friends and family are super supportive for the most part, and the only person who harps on getting married is Michal.  Without that outside pressure the need to go out on a limb and do something crazy, like book a hall, send out invitations and buy a wedding dress with no groom, seems non-existent.  Also, My Big Fat Greek Wedding featured Greek traditions and culture and all of it was explained (mostly by an exasperated Toula who was kind of fed up with it all – and even that was funny).  The Wedding Plan features what I can only assume are Orthodox Jewish traditions, because they went unexplained.  These two elements made stepping into Toula’s shoes very easy and the characters very relatable across a wider audience. Everyone can relate to crazy, invasive family members and family, spiritual, cultural and/or religious “rituals” and/or traditions); thus that film’s success.

Dafi Alfernon is a great actress. She can be hilarious and plays pathetic and crazy like nobody’s business. She reminded me of Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Elaine or that crazy Christine) several times, which is one great compliment – particularly for someone who is not even speaking my language.  The supporting cast does an excellent job as well.  Whatever may or may not have gone wrong with this movie, it was not in the acting.

The Wedding Plan earned 5 out of 10 bloops. It isn’t bad but could have been better but I wouldn’t advise anyone to pay to see it in a theater.  The movie had potential but is lacking in romance, too sad to be as funny as one would expect a comedy to be and misses too many opportunities to be more relatable.

Wonder Woman

DC Comics’ Wonder Woman, starring Gal (pronounced like “doll”) Gadot (rhymes with “float”) and Chris Pine, tells the story of Diana, princess of the Amazons and trained warrior, and her harsh introduction to the “free world.”  Raised in tranquil Themyscira, Diana is forced into her destiny to defend the world against the forces of evil in real-world WWI.

There’s a lot to like about this movie. Gadot and Pine complement one another well. Gadot served in the IDF (the Israeli army) years ago, was Miss Israel 2004 and trained in swordsmanship, Kung Fu kickboxing, Capoeira and Brazilian Jujitsu for this role, so physically she makes a perfect Wonder Woman, with beauty and strength.  I wasn’t sure Pine was the right pick, but he won me over.  The action was well choreographed and the effects are kind of cool at times.  The set design and costumes are outstanding.  There is some great camerawork and cinematography.  All the elements one wants in a comic-based film are present.

The writing is strong (as far as comic-book based movies go), incorporating a bit of humor and romance (but never too much) into the action and adventure. The movie is chaste and clean.  The interesting part of the story is this stark contrast between the light-filled, idyllic existence Diana came from and the dark, smoky chaos and ugliness she becomes a part of (and how it gets darker and darker both in writing and visually).  We get to watch her metamorphosis from a wide-eyed tot, to a naïve, sheltered girl who is not even fully aware of who she is, to a woman who eventually owns and masters her power.  This is about Diana Prince coming of age and the death of her innocence, so it has this sort of tragic feel to it that enriches the story further.  For fans and aspiring fans, this movie covers everything you need to know about Diana’s origins (including the story behind her weapons – which is very cool) and how she became a total bad-ass.

The movie is well directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster (2003)). I could almost feel the balanced touch she put on it, as opposed to the heavy-handed feel some of the male-directed comic book based movies can sometimes have (Because… You know?  They’re manly male Superheroes!); and I had no idea this woman was the director, or even of her existence until a few minutes ago.  Wonder Woman follows the usual superhero story formula — good vs. evil, a love interest, fight scenes, yada, yada, yada.  But despite being predictable (because I mean, we all know the story, so there’s really nothing that should be all that surprising or new here) the movie manages to feel “fresh” and not overdone or overwritten, or overworked.  It’s just right.  From the writing to the screenplay to the direction, the acting, and the action — this movie feels like a concerted effort.  It feels like a movie should; as if the people who worked on it worked mostly cooperatively and enjoyed themselves in the process.

Here’s where I usually discuss what I didn’t like. But I won’t because I’m having a hard time knocking this movie.  I even love how Diana’s mother and aunt had accents to explain Gadot’s accent.  It’s Amazonian!  This way, she could speak the way she speaks naturally without trying to imitate some American or European accent, or whatever.  And the use of athletes to play the Amazons was thoughtful as well, so there was a consistent body type among them.  That is what you call careful consideration in movie making.  Little things mean a lot.

I can hardly believe it, but Wonder Woman earned 8 out of 10 bloops. It’s a great movie worth seeing.  But hold up…  Consider the source.  I said it before and I must continue to say it – this is not my genre.  But I’m a “girly-girl” who grew up on Linda Carter as Wonder Woman from my childhood (I believe I had the doll as well), so this character holds a special place in my heart as one of the few popular female superheroes of my time (the others I can think of would probably be Catwoman and Batgirl, and Batgirl annoyed the heck out of me.)  But here, someone took their time, put some careful consideration into a movie, and did a fine job.  Go see it!

Mini Reviews…

Hey there! It’s been a while since I reviewed anything. I had a bit of surgery to recover from but I’m much better now.  While I was down I binge watched so much Netflix, Hulu and HBO GO, etc., I don’t even remember all the things I watched.  So here are some mini-reviews of what I’ve seen.  Still haven’t seen The Handmaid’s Tale, the seventh season of Archer, second season of Master of None, and Queen Sugar (I know I’m late.  Don’t judge me!), but they are soooo on my list. Thank you to everyone who kept checking to see if I had written anything and those who kept reading, referring and sharing what I’ve already written and kept my little blog alive.  Sincerely, thank you so much.

Ballers
HBO – starring the Rock
7.5 out of 10 bloops

I like this show. It is worth seeing, particularly if you’re a fan of the Rock.  It’s kind of like Entourage meets Arliss.  If you liked those shows, you’ll really like this one.

Dear White People
Netflix
8.5 out of 10 bloops

Surprisingly, much better than I expected it to be given that I disliked the movie very, very much. I felt like it was too similar to something Spike Lee had already done, and if I want to see a Spike Lee movie, I can watch a Spike Lee movie.  What really made me watch the Netflix series is that one of the episodes is directed by Barry Jenkins (Moonlight).  Would have been really nice if they could have gotten Spike Lee to direct one, but alas… The uniqueness of the format of the show is what makes it interesting.  It’s well acted, well cast, and confronts and discusses important issues surrounding racists and racism.  Another one of the programs the very people who need to be watching won’t.  You think it is going to be an exercise in bashing white people but it is really about engaging one another in a conversation, coming to some understanding about one another and working toward solutions.

13 Reasons Why
Netflix
8.5 out of 10 bloops

Another great show which puts suicide all up in your face, and covers all the things that can contribute to it, including but not limited to, low self esteem, negative self image, peer pressure, bullying, sexual assault, rape culture, depression, underage drinking, and just so much more.  If you have a tween or teenager who is willing to watch it with you, you really should.  You could literally talk about each episode for hours because there is so much going on in the story with these young people.  And no, it does not glorify suicide.  This is a mini-review, so I won’t get into all of that.  Watch it and form your own opinion.  The initial premise is a bit silly to me, but you have to go with it to get through the story.  A second season is coming.  I guess it will be interesting to see how that is executed.

Greenleaf
OWN
9.0 out of 10 bloops

All I can say is Oprah… Holy Crap Girl! You have done it!  Haven’t seen Queen Sugar yet, but this right here is fire!  If you like drama and excellent acting I can’t tell you enough how much I encourage you to watch Greenleaf.  It’s about a pastor of a megachurch and his dynasty.  Lynn Whitfield is outstanding as the first lady of the church and it’s like someone spilled all the church secrets.  Very well done, indeed.  It’s dramatic like Empire, but with class and Jesus.  And there’s a Winans in it and everything!  The music is an important part of the show.

This is Us
NBC/I think I watched on Hulu or Amazon. I really cannot remember.  Check both.  It’s worth it!
9.0 out of 10 bloops

This show features a multicultural, multifaceted family that contains a bunch of imperfect people trying to navigate how to love each other and stay together. You see, the family looks all perfect and kumbayaa on the outside, but if you look a little bit deeper you see all the many, many, flaws – just like real families.  And they’re beautiful.  And they love each other.  It is just a beautiful show.  If you have almost any type of family relationship troubles, you will see your loved ones in this show.  I was told it will make me cry every week, which is why I avoided it.  (I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t want to be crying over some t.v. show every week.  Life is hard enough as it is.)  It didn’t make me cry every week, but when it gets you, it gets you and it isn’t terrible.  Well-acted, well written, well-conceived, just superbly well done.
