The Greatest Showman Is Slick, Sleek and Superficial!

The Greatest Showman is a movie musical about P.T. Barnum – the founder of America’s first circus. Movie musicals are not known for their historical accuracy, but – considering that there are many biographies of the man which paint him as anywhere from an honest entrepreneur to a cynical con man making a fortune by exploiting the pain of his collection of freaks and oddities – this film is far too superficial. Except for a few exceptional songs…

Blu-ray Review: Baywatch Extended Cut – Still Swimming!

Maybe it was just the mood I had going into Baywatch (looking for a laugh or two after a day of packing up to move), but I quite enjoyed it.

The question is, would I feel the same way about the movie without an audience, in my living room? The answer is yes.

Bring the Beach Home In August – Baywatch Comes To Home Video with Extended Version!

The misadventures of the Baywatch team – from grounded leader Mitch to hot dogging Matt; from sympathetic nerd Ronnie to Rommie’s dreamgirl CJ – as they tackle the ‘not quite Bond’ villain Victoria are little short of genius-level silliness (with a dash of drama to keep things from drifting away).

Baywatch is coming to home video on August 15th (digital) and August 29th (Blu-ray and DVD). The Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases include an extended version of the film.

Dirty Grandpa – Vile, Ugly, Crude & Funny!

UDEP_D08_01473.CR2

Dirty Grandpa finds an earnest corporate lawyer being persuaded to drive his grandpa to Florida the day after his grandma’s funeral – and a week before his own wedding.

If the movie’s title, TV spots and online trailers haven’t made it clear, Dirty Grandpa is a loud, crazy, vulgar farce that attempts to mix crudity with heart. That it mostly succeeds is something of a surprise.

We Are Your Friends: Sincerity Counts for Something!

We Are Your Friends - Bentley-Efron

We Are Your Friends is a rags to (almost) riches tale of a young DJ who stumbles into the mentorship of a once great DJ and falls in love with his girlfriend – all while trying to maintain a loyalty to a very Entourage-ish group of far less cool friends.

Despite hitting many of the notes we’ve seen in other movies, WAYF works because it comes from a genuinely heartfelt and sincere place – and the cast commits to that.
