Review: 47 Meters Down

posted: 06/16/2017 1:49 a.m. Discuss

For my money, the scariest scene in Jaws, a film chock-full of them, is the moment near the climax, when Hooper (Richard Dreyfus) is lowered down in a shark cage with a giant syringe of poison in a last ditch attempt to take out the monster predator. Peering in fear around him in the gloom, we are all stuck in that insufficient little cage with Hooper as he scans desperately through the ocean murk. It's the perfect encapsulation of a very human terror at facing such a violent unknown.

Woman walks all over Mummy

The Mummy, Universal's ambitious revival of the famous monster film, failed to scare up much of a turnout among weekend moviegoers, opening at No. 2 in North America to the Warner Bros. hit Wonder Woman.

Review: Rough Night

posted: 06/16/2017 1:46 a.m. Discuss

As women achieve more milestones toward gender parity in film (and there's still a long way to go to), steps toward equality don't always have to be positive or uplifting images of womanhood. Sometimes, it's more relevant when female characters can be just as raunchy, drunk, morally corrupt and beloved as their badly behaved male counterparts. Rough Night, from Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs (they co-wrote the script while Aniello directed and Downs stars in the film), is the first R-rated Hollywood studio film directed by a woman, about women, in decades. It not only pushes the boundary of questionable behavior, it does a handstand on top of it, and fortunately, they just about nail the landing.

It is with genuine sadness to report that Paris Can Wait is a snore.

Review: The Book of Henry

posted: 06/16/2017 1:45 a.m. Discuss

Yet another film about a gifted youngster who regularly outsmarts the grown-ups in his world, The Book of Henry offers a few moments when the movie is almost as clever as its title character.

DEAR HELOISE: I recently graduated from college, and as a graduation gift, my grandmother gave me a handwritten letter that her father gave her on her graduation from college. It was written in 1955, and I have it framed and on my wall above my desk to remind me daily of the words that are as true today as they were in 1955:

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I know I ought to take time for God -- things like reading the Bible, praying, being active in church and so forth. But I'm so busy that these things just get crowded out. Maybe I'll find time to do them when I'm old, but I just can't seem to squeeze them in right now.

All Eyez On Me

Review: All Eyez on Me

posted: 06/16/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

Rapper Tupac Shakur was a revolutionary, a controversial, brilliant artist cut down in his prime, who only became more iconic after his death. The son of a Black Panther, a high school chum of Jada Pinkett Smith, and a vanguard of West Coast gangsta rap, Tupac endured and produced far more in his 25 years than most ever do, and his life story has been overdue for the bio-pic treatment, especially in light of the films about his rivals and contemporaries such as Notorious and Straight Outta Compton. After a long gestation, All Eyez on Me arrives in theaters, directed by Benny Boom, but this disorganized bio-pic isn't quite worthy of its subject's remarkable life.
