Get your latest movie and series recommendations from Cinemovie and Cinemacy's Morgan Rojas on the Hollywood Critic's Association weekly podcast, What To Stream. This week we're talking new and old movies such as GUNDA, THE COURIER, THE ASSISTANT and others.
Team Kong wins this round in GODZILLA VS KONG. King Kong is the heart of the monster movie while Godzilla guest stars. GODZILLA VS KONG may satisfy some fans while turn off others on Team Godzilla. Most of the human characters lack any depth except for the little scene-stealer Kaylee Hottle.
If someone had pitched Bob Odenkirk as an action hero years ago, no one would've taken that bet. The Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul actor is no John Wick in NOBODY but he pulls it off with his usual charm and awkwardness.
Benedict Cumberbatch stars in THE COURIER, the true-life spy thriller based on the events surrounding British businessman Greville Wynne's recruitment to spy on Russia during the Cold War. THE COURIER is not your traditional spy thriller with Cumberbatch playing an ordinary man in a dangerous situation which ups the peril.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan pair up for a buddy cop six hour-long movie on Disney+ in THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER. The Avenger actors reprise their roles as Sam Wilson aka The Falcon and Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier post the blip and losing their friend Steve Rogers to retirement with his great love. The first episode starts with a bang but then slows down to focus on the two leads as the show delves deep into their personal backgrounds.
Actors who play superheroes often get pigeonholed into playing the same sort of character, and Tom Holland seems to know that. The 24-year-old actor stars in Anthony and Joe Russo's CHERRY, now playing on Apple+. Holland is intentionally choosing roles that showcase his acting range so as to avoid the same pitfalls, and he's succeeding with very mature roles lately. Let's take a look at how the babyfaced actor's choices wlll cement a career in Hollywood.
Join myself and fellow Hollywood Critics Association (HCA) critic Morgan Rojas as we discuss new films premiering on streaming services this weekend, and other recommendations including where to watch two classic titles like THE TRUMAN SHOW (1998) and WEST SIDE STORY (1961).
In our weekly "What to Stream" podcast (brought to you by the Hollywood Critics Association), Megan Rojas of Cinemacy, Rama Tampubolon of RamaScreen.com and myself reviewed new movies and series hitting streaming platforms. Watch as we review the following movies.
You won't be able to take your eyes off of RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON with the beautiful palette of colors that make this Disney movie pop off your television screen. While the storyline doesn't break ground, women as the heroes and villains make it all the more interesting.
The theme for 2021's Black History Month is “Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity.” When it comes to film and television, there have been strides with 2020 being a great year for movies starring black actors, made by black filmmakers. More films were directed and written by Black Americans than ever before, and many of them are in the running this award season. Below are the 14 current films you can stream online.
There's a reason why Kristen Wiig's latest film went straight to rental. BARB & STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR is like a live version of a DESPICABLE ME movie or feature length SNL skit. It borders on stupidity but Wiig and her costar/writing partner Annie Mumolo are endearing enough to keep your attention as long as your expectations remain low. It doesn't deliver on the belly laughs we've come to expect from Wiig's comedy but you will get some chuckles. Unfortunately Jamie Dornan feels out of place in this silly comedy.
JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH is not only entertaining but educational with a fabulous ensemble and standout performances by Daniel Kaluuya and Dominique Fishback. The film dispels much of the negative perception of the Black Panther party as simply a radical militant group which the FBI categorized as a terrorist organization.
