Black ’47

Bloody revenge saga is more folk ballad than history lesson

Looked on less as a rigorous historical account and more as a blood-soaked folk tale told around a flickering tavern fireplace, Black ’47 makes for one rousing cinematic yarn.

The Old Man & The Gun

Real life bank heist flick gets a senior discount

The Old Man & The Gun is an affable, sedentary tale of a likable old rogue—a sort of Catch Me If You Can for the AARP set—but it’s not the sort of film you can get excited about.

See Coco or “Villains and Monsters" and go to the Way OUT West Film Festival. And if you think you pass for a “high school-looking" then some TV producers might like to hire you.

A Star is Born

A star is rebooted in familiar musical melodrama

This tale of a faded musical icon who discovers a talented young ingénue, mentors her, falls in love and then becomes despondent when her star eclipses his own is a familiar cliché. Thankfully, the 2018 revamp of the age-old entertainment industry story offers up a respectable number of un-guilty pleasures before succumbing to its manipulative emotions and unabashedly old-fashioned drama.

Legions of “Doctor Who” fans are waiting in something between eager anticipation and deep trepidation for Season 11 of their favorite sci-fi show to return. The source of this uncertainty is the fact that the BBC is giving “Doctor Who” its biggest reboot in series history, recasting its main character as a woman.
