I am introducing the Thirty Second Film Reviews due to I’ve been busy with several commitments as of late.
“Snatched” (R) – Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s talent are neglected from start to finish and yet, results in a tolerable yet stale comedy. C
“King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword” (PG-13) – A tedious period drama that delivers the ultimate snooze fest. D-
“Everything, Everything” (PG-13) – Provides the tried and true young adult romance narrative resulting in another “The Fault in Our Stars” (2014) wannabe. C
“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul” (PG) – Lacks a coherent narrative, consisting of humorless toilet jokes. Do not travel with the Heffley Family. F
“A Quiet Passion” (PG-13) – In an otherwise underwhelming narrative, Cynthia Nixon’s performance as the legendary poet Emily Dickinson prevails. C+
“The Lovers” (R) – Incredible performances and chemistry among Debra Winger and Tracy Letts, but not up to the standard of the prior A24 films. B
“Baywatch” (R) – Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron are adorable eye candy; however, you may not dismiss the predictable buddy narrative. C
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (PG-13) – The screenplay is as foolish as the pirate Captain Jack Sparrow himself. Only genuinely entertaining during three brief sequences. D
Review Structure Key
Regular reviews ~ Word count varies.
Mini reviews ~ Positives and negatives (+/-) analysis.
Brief reviews ~ One hundred words, more or less.
Thirty Second reviews ~ Multiple films will be reviewed all at once, hence the editions. One sentence to three sentences. Primarily utilized for when I have personal commitments (may or may not be stated).
