From our review:

Like other movies in the mean girl high school subgenre, thu revenge It focuses on intricate social plots and vicious popular cliques. But it’s not a spin-off or a cliché: instead, it’s a natural evolution of this type of movie for 2022. Some parts of high school are constant, but youth culture evolves rapidly, so teen movies, especially the that adapt or pay homage to older people. material: you run the risk of feeling outdated. thu revenge it dodges that curse because of the way Robinson and co-writer Celeste Ballard cleverly update certain plot points.

Based on the 1994 A.S. Byatt book The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eyeby George Miller Three thousand years of longing centers on Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton), a student of myth and storytelling who inexplicably uncorks a Djinn (Idris Elba) from a bottle in which he has been imprisoned for the past hundred years. Bound to Alithea until she grants three of her wishes, the Djinn tells her three stories from her three thousand year captivity, each telling a tale of loss, longing, betrayal, and love.

From our review:

There are movies that change the nature of the air you breathe after watching them, as a motif from their score replays in your mind and the color of the world outside the theater doesn’t match what you see on screen. Three thousand years of longing it’s one of those movies, a story about stories, a tense genre prone to self-sufficiency, that isn’t just interested in its magic as a cloying, unifying force. They are more powerful than that. More dangerous than that. And it turns out there are few more satisfying ways to explore this than watching two people who think they know everything there is to know about a story trying to figure out how this one ends.

BJ Novak brings the podcast-style mystery to the big screen in his directorial debut, playing a New York-based journalist who travels to Texas to investigate a disappearance.

From our review:

The film periodically reminds the audience that yes, guns and fast food are an important part of American life for the Texan crowd. The fact that Ben himself is aware of his possible condescension on the East Coast adds another layer, and also the fact that he gets involved anyway. But those extra layers don’t necessarily enrich the movie-watching experience. Finally, Revenge it starts to feel a bit like a laid-back meme, tracing the pipeline from gifted kid to committed murder investigator.

good night mom

Naomi Watts stars in the 2022 US remake of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s 2014 psychological horror film good night mom. The film focuses on the twins who, after arriving at her mother’s secluded country house and discovering her face covered in bandages, begin to suspect that this woman is not actually her mother.

From our review:

When the English remake was announced for good night mom, the biggest question looming was whether the new film would be as harsh and end as nihilistically as the original. Not only does the remake lack the guts to even come close to the original film in terms of on-screen horror and pain, it doesn’t really work as a movie in its own right.

The new version stars Naomi Watts as the titular mom. With the English remakes the Rings other Funny Games to his credit, Watts may have seemed like an easy choice for the title role of another American reboot of an international horror hit. The deficiencies of the new version are not due to its lack of skill or effort: the problems lie solely with the writing and directing.

by Hiroyasu Ishida (penguin highway) latest anime feature drifting house It centers on childhood friends Kosuke and Natsume who, after visiting the apartment building they used to live in before it was demolished, are transported to another dimension surrounded by a vast ocean. Stranded with their mutual friends, the two must now work together to find a way out of this strange world and back into their own.

From our review:

The beautiful animation production of Studio Colores (penguin highway, A whisker away) does much to sell the extravagant premise. The structures move and break with a believable weight, although the driving action involves a building floating on the ocean like a raft. To a similar effect, the young characters are all drawn with light, smooth lines. Akihiro Nagae’s designs remain realistic even with the most fantastic figures that appear to children. Photorealistic background art contrasts modernity with mid-century post-war architecture, but Ishida’s direction doesn’t obsess over realism. It never feels at odds with the film’s sense of danger when the director hints at a broad, sometimes stretchy, physical comedy about the characters’ interactions with these environments, such as when Kosuke daringly uses a makeshift zip line to reach an adjacent floating building. , hits the corrugated iron. he ceiling and bounces off the building like a pinball.

Jon Hamm stars in this remake of the 1980s comedy series, replacing Chevy Chase as the witty comedic detective.

From our review:

The way Hamm’s revival of the series is receiving a lukewarm double release in some theaters and on VOD suggests how little faith Miramax has in the project. The film, however, says otherwise. It’s fast and fun – the kind of comedy that adult moviegoers used to watch much more often than they do today. Comedies have fallen out of favor in a film landscape that’s more devoted to Liam Neeson-style revenge movies, but Confess, Fletch. it’s refreshing, not just because of how it uses comedy, but because of how it uses Jon Hamm.
