The Woman King Review: By Tim Nasson
Make no mistake. Wonder Woman was real. Forget about Wakanda (the fictionalized African kingdom universe from Marvel's Black Panther). The world of The Woman King is the African tour you will want to go on. Mario Bello, yes, the actress, conceived the idea for The Woman King as a big screen epic after visiting Benin, formerly the Republic of Dahomey, (which is where much of the jaw dropping ) and learning the history of the Agojie. Oscar winner Viola Davis portrays General Nanisca, the mighty leader of all-female warriors who protected the African Kingdom of Dahomey in the 1800s with skills and a fierceness unlike anything the world has ever seen.Read more
Medieval Review: By Tim Nasson
Short on any dialogue and devoid of great acting - even the usually wonderful Ben Foster and always sensational Matthew Goode (The Offer, watch it on Paramount+, if you haven't) can't prevent this from being a B-movie, that in the 1940s and 50s would have been relegated to the second film in a double feature. What saves Medieval and what makes it worth seeing in a movie theater is the out-of-this-world cinematography and fight sequences. Based on the true story of fifteenth century Czech icon and warlord Jan Zizka, who defeated armies of the Teutonic Order and the Holy Roman Empire, Medieval brings you back in time, and if watched on the big screen, will make you think you are in the former mountains of Czechoslovakia, fighting right next to the Jan himself.
The Son Review: By Tim Nasson
Film director/playwright Florian Zeller is back on the big screen with a bang - with The Son, a follow-up to his Academy Award winning tour de force, The Father. The Father brought Sir Anthony Hopkins his second Best Actor Oscar as a man living with Alzheimer’s and recognized Zeller (and co-screenwriter Christopher Hampton) with Best Adapted Screenplay honors. The Son is on track to repeat its predecessor’s award winning ways.
