You Should Have Left Review by Tim Nasson

Universal’s You Should Have Left is the latest movie to bypass movie theaters and debut via streaming, (following the likes of Trolls: World Tour, The King of Staten Island, Artemis Fowl, The High Note, the Valley Girl remake, The Lovebirds, to name a few). You Should Have Left is definitely not the type of movie that that loses […]

Billy Crystal

Billy Crystal is Sammy Davis Jr. on SNL 1984

by Tim Nasson: There has been so much faux outrage over white actors impersonating black actors (Jimmy Fallon as Chris Rock), and incredibly talented white actors (Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Chris Lilley) creating and playing hilarious non-white characters (Little Britain, Come Fly With Me, Angry Boys, Jonah From Tonga, Lunatics, and more) and – unnecessarily having […]

A Fall From Grace

A Fall From Grace Review by Tim Nasson

“A Fall From Grace” marks several firsts for Atlanta-based entertainment mogul Tyler Perry. It’s his first feature film for Netflix, his first psychological thriller, and also the prolific writer-actor-director-producer’s first film since wrapping up the Medea series of ten big screen films which, combined, earned more than half a billion dollars at the box office. […]

By Tim Nasson 2020 Oscar Nominees and Winners Complete List Stay tuned for 2020 Oscar winners February 9, 2020, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST. While everyone knew that Joaquin Phoenix was a sure thing in the Best Actor race at the 2020 Oscars,  it’s doubtful that anyone figured that Joker would end up with the most […]

Just Mercy Review by Tim Nasson

By Tim Nasson It’s said truth is stranger than fiction. In Just Mercy, a new film starring Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (Ray), truth is scarier than fiction. Just Mercy tells the true story of Walter McMillan, an African American man unfairly convicted of murdering an 18-year-old white girl in 1980s Alabama and sentenced to death. […]

1917 Review by Tim Nasson

1917 is a remarkable film that allows moviegoers to experience, virtually firsthand, one day in the life of a soldier during the First World War. The plot involves two young British soldiers, Lance Corporal Schofield (George MacKay) and Lance Corporal Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), who are given an important but seemingly impossible mission: deliver a message […]

Uncut Gems

ArcLight Cinemas Boston

By Tim Nasson I have been to the grand openings of literally dozens of movie theaters around the country during the past 35 years; Loews Lincoln Square, Loews EWOK, Loews Burlington, Loews Framingham, AMC Boston Common, AMC Assembly Row, iPic Scottsdale, iPic Westwood, to name just a few. And then there was the opening of ArcLight […]

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Review by Tim Nasson

Last week I prematurely proclaimed that Charlie’s Angels, the reboot, was the worst major studio release of 2019. I have to take that back since, currently, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood earns that distinction. There are still a handful of 2019 major releases that I have yet to see, and there is a chance, […]

Frozen 2 Review by Tim Nasson

The target audience for Disney’s Frozen 2 is all of the girls who saw and loved the first film in 2013, and since, be it in theaters, on DVD, HBO or Disney+. And there are tens of millions around the world. I am certainly not part of that audience. Frozen 2 is going to make a […]

Charlie’s Angels (2019) Review by Tim Nasson

Charlie’s Angels is a brand that, at one point, was not laughable. It all began in 1976 with a TV show that turned Farrah Fawcett (Angel Jill Monroe) into a superstar. In 2000, the Angels were reborn and this time onto the big screen. I flew from Boston to Los Angeles to interview the entire cast […]

Ford v Ferrari Review by Tim Nasson

I hate car racing movies. At least I thought I did until I saw Ford v Ferrari, one of the better films of 2019. Starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale, the film is more of a narrative featuring Oscar worthy performances by both Damon and Bale, especially Bale, than a racing movie. The movie, directed just as wonderfully […]

Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep Review by Tim Nasson

Stephen King famously despised Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece of a film, The Shining, (an adaptation of King’s novel of the same name), upon its release in 1980. That film went on to become a classic and is considered one of the best horror films of all time. However, the film, even though it featured Jack Nicholson […]

Last Christmas

Last Christmas Review by Tim Nasson

If you were to pour the movies Harvey, The Sixth Sense, Ghost, An Affair to Remember and Nuts into a blender and mix on the highest speed, you just may end up with the movie Last Christmas, one of the worst Christmas movies ever made. Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directed this dreck featuring Game Of Thrones‘ Emilia […]

midway_ver15

Midway Review by Tim Nasson

The movie Midway is the $100 million catastrophe that may put the nail in director Roland Emmerich’s (Independence Day, White House Down) coffin when it comes to directing movies for mini majors, in this case, Lionsgate, and any of the big 5 majors. Midway is the story of the Battle of Midway, told by the leaders […]

harriet_ver2

Harriet Review by Tim Nasson

The movie Harriet, directed by Kasi Lemmons (director of the haunting and wonderful Eve’s Bayou from 1997) and starring Best Lead Actress in a musical (2016) Tony Winner Cynthia Erivo (The Color Purple), could have been a great film. Harriet is the story of Minty (short for Araminta), who is born into slavery. Her father and […]

countdown_ver2

Countdown Review by Tim Nasson

If ever there was a movie tailor made for Netflix, a movie intended to bypass movie theaters altogether, Countdown is the film. Countdown is not a Netflix release. It is from the fairly new STX Films, responsible for more box office bombs and misses (UglyDolls, The Best of Enemies, The Happytime Murders, I Feel Pretty, Second […]

lighthouse_ver2

The Lighthouse Review by Tim Nasson

The Lighthouse, starring Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (who is always brilliant in every movie he is in), and Twilight’s Robert Pattinson, is the follow up film from director Robert Eggers, whose 2017 movie, The Witch, was an art house favorite. The Witch actually entertained. The Lighthouse is something else altogether. There has been a lot […]

Parasite poster

Parasite Review by Tim Nasson

To say that a foreign film that plays in movie theaters and that appeals to the masses is something of a unicorn is an understatement. Even last year’s Roma, with all of its Oscar nominations and hype, was not a movie many cared to see in theaters (or on Netflix for that matter). It played […]
