The Kid Who Would Be King Theatrical Review

(Alyn Darnay)  01/24/2019 9:15 PM EDT
Once upon a time...That's the way all fairytales, old and new, usually begins, so I thought I'd start my review by honoring this modern take on one of them in the same way. "The Kid Who Would Be King" is quite simply a wonderfully bright new take on the Arthurian legend. Part "Goonies" style action adventure, part allegory, and ... Read More

Racial Profiling is defined as the use of race or ethnicity as grounds for suspecting someone of having committed an offense and it is a problem that plagues cities across this country.  Recently a number of unarmed young, black men have been killed by police officers who saw them as a threat simply based on the color of their skin.  When...

Since the 1980s, Rowan Atkinson has been a fixture in film and on television. From his breakthrough role in The Black Adder to the incomparable Mr. Bean, Atkinson has been an international entertainer for almost 40 years. In 2003, he starred as the lead in Johnny English, a spoof on the James Bond series. The film was followed by Johnny English Reb... Read More

Known as the Stephen King of children's literature, R.L. Stine created a series of scary stories from 1992 through 1997 entitled Goosebumps.  The books have a number of monsters but a ventriloquist's dummy named Slappy is prevalent in many of them.  In 2015 Slappy was brought to life when Goosebumps the movie came to theaters.  With ...

(Leonard Buccellato)  01/21/2019 12:04 PM EDT
A long time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, Universal Pictures released the most bloated, and expensive movie of all time (prior to Titanic).At the time Waterworld was released, it seemed that it could do nothing right in the eyes of critics and movie-goers, alike. I remember disliking it, immediately, although that was due more to my dislike fo... Read More

Over the years the entertainment industry has given birth to some very beguilingly comedy duos. I'm sure you know some of them; they crop up every decade. Some disappear as quickly as they arrived, others leave behind them a vague memory, but a few brilliant ones leave behind an enduring legacy.Unless you've lived under a rock somewhere, you'll kno...

M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is known for his dramatic thrillers that offer a twist.  He usually keeps the audience guessing as to what is really going on and reveals the truth at the end, often to the surprise of the viewers.  In 2000 he presented fans with a different type of "superhero" story in Unbreakable starring S...

When Deadpool made its way to theaters on 2016 it did so with a hard R rating much to the studio's and parents' chagrin.  It was only natural when the sequel arrived that it too would have that same R rating and be inappropriate for children.  In fact, part of what audiences like so much about the films and the character is his crass deme...

Sylvester Stallone (Rocky) had a string of hit action movies in the 1970s and 1980s but those hits waned by the latter part of 1980s and he didn't make movies for a few years.  Then in 1993, he starred in another action film called Cliffhanger. Based in the mountains of the Northwestern United States and filmed in the Italian Alps, the Renny H... Read More

(Allison Hazlett-Rose)  01/09/2019 11:17 AM EDT
It's been a while since we've been treated to a highly stylized film in the vain of film noir.  During the 1990's we saw quite a bit of that genre but we seemed to have lost sight of it with all the action/superhero films of this millennia.  Bad Times At the El Royale reminds us of why we loved these types of movies and what a beautifully...
