Movie Review: #TheBigSick

The romantic comedy The Big Sick at once charms its way into making us love it, while exposing its one fault.
Review by Matt Cummings
The idea of an important and heartfelt social comedy - one that Director John Hughes might have crafted in the 80's or the laugh-out-loud message of separation in Swingers by John Favreau - feels so distant in our modern times. Even the darling of Sundance - The Big Sick - isn't quite that, but it's got a ton of heart and edges so close to brilliance, only to be shot down by a problematic third act.

Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani) is a struggling Pakistani-American comic living in Chicago who desires to hit it big time. While performing one night, he encounters the antics of Emily (Zoe Kazan), a spry blonde whom he instantly connects with. She too finds him interesting, with Kumail going so far to drive her home in his secondary job as an Uber driver. Soon, the two find themselves hanging out all the time, but the joy Kumail finds is also ta…

Movie Review: #AGhostStory

The tedious and problematic A Ghost Story tests our patience.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a Summer box office that's revealed people's tiring of predictable sequels and unnecessary reboots, a batch of truly unique properties/premises have overtaken the chatter at the Internet Water Cooler. Sadly, that doesn't apply to A Ghost Story, a movie that tests our patience with its tedium while doing little to challenge our perceptions of the afterlife.

The couple C (Casey Affleck) and M (Rooney Mara) live in a nondescript home that's anything but that. It appears to be haunted by a ghost who makes noises on their piano, drops books in front of them, and (in one case) goes full ape shit to destroy the home. But when C dies in a car crash just outside the property, he awakens as a ghost himself, complete with the white sheet, black cloth for eyes, but no ability to speak. Soon, he's on a time travelling adventure of the spirit, as he's forced to watch M move on wit…

Twelve years after discovering her mother’s suicide, 17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is bullied in high school, embarrassed by her manic, hoarder father JONATHAN (Ryan Phillippe) and ignored by her longtime crush. All that changes when her father comes home with an old music box whose inscription promises to grant its owner seven wishes. While Clare is initially skeptical of this magic box, she can’t help but be seduced by its dark powers, and is thrilled as her life radically improves with each wish. Clare finally has the life she’s always wanted and everything seems perfect – until the people closest to her begin dying in violent and elaborate ways after each wish. Clare realizes that she must get rid of the box, but finds herself unable and unwilling to part with her new-and-improved life – leading her down a dark and dangerous path.

Magnolia Pictures 'LUCKY' Trailer

LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut “Lucky”, is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

Top Gun: Maverick Landing In 2019

Since moving from the long stretch of development hell, with most of us wondering if it would ever actually get made, the Top Gun sequel has been jumping off the deck and shoving into overdrive. Details have been falling into place, and we now know the film, Top Gun: Maverick, is targeting a July 2019 release.

With both a title and a confirmed director (Oblivion's Joseph Kosinski is reuniting with star Tom Cruise), the sequel to the 1986 film finds Cruise's Pete "Maverick" Mitchell teaching young hotshot pilots how to do their thing in an age where unmanned drone warfare is becoming increasingly common.

We don't yet know if any of his Top Gun cast colleagues will come back for this (Val Kilmer has said he'd be ready to defrost Iceman for the movie), but you never knows... Except Goose, of course. Poor Goose.

The script for the movie has been through the hands of Peter Craig, Justin Marks, Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz and the current aim – Stateside at least…
