Cars 3

Film Review

Cars 3

Sentimental and scenic, trilogy-ending sports flick cruises to the finish line

Cars 3 is no ironclad Pixar classic but it is a well made film that delivers more or less the same sentimental moral as the original and Larry the Cable Guy is hardly in this one at all.

Paris Can Wait

Film Review

Paris Can Wait

Rambling romantic trip to Paris should have taken the bullet train

Paris Can Wait is exactly the sort of pretty, pseudo-exotic, post-menopausal romance you’d expect a wealthy, film-obsessed octogenarian to make in conjunction with Lifetime Films.

My Cousin Rachel

Film Review

My Cousin Rachel

Love, marriage and maybe murder in merry olde England

Between My Cousin Rachel's intriguing opening and its punchy ending, the nuanced script and subtle direction successfully elevate du Maurier’s self-consciously old-fashioned source material.

The Wedding Plan

Film Review

The Wedding Plan

Israeli romantic comedy eschews romance and comedy, but still finds sympathy for its undaunted heroine

The Wedding Plan never fully convinces as a romantic comedy but has a certain charm and velocity that’s hard to escape.
