Movie Guru's Current Movie Briefs


Since I write many of these briefs the day before the movies are released, what we have here are mostly ruminations on movies I have not yet seen. You will have to decide for yourself if these briefs have any value. I believe the less you know about a movie, the better chance you might enjoy it to the upside. Too many reviewers seem to go out of their ways to ruin for you with way too much information your upcoming movie experience. In fact my D graded Master’s Thesis proposed that reviews should be embargoed until after the opening weekends allowing moviegoers to see the movies fresh and without plot summaries taken right out of the press kits.

  • Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

    Director, George Miller has made a series of five sensational action films. The original, Mad Max with Mel Gibson at his best, small, but intriguing, set you up for Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Miller’s first shock to the system. Beyond Thunderdome is less than the best but includes Gibson’s final Max performance. Then comes the Charlize Theron Fury Road sensation followed now by Furiosa about a young woman with big blue eyes out for revenge. And there is more to come. A future film is already on the drawing board.

  • The Garfield Movie 2024

    An animated Garfield action movie. I never thought I would ever see the words, Garfield and action in the same sentence. The grandkids are raring to go. I hope they are not disappointed.

  • Sight

    Another Angel Studio uplifting, based on a true story, movie. A Chinese immigrant doctor works to restore the sight of a young parentless child. These movies are very popular and well regarded by all who attend.

  • If

    What if “If” is not equal to the weight of its premise, a troubled young girl can see abandoned imaginary friends (IF’s). Watching the various previews, I wondered if the movie might be too precious and not equal the fun factor that Wonka brought at Christmas time. I will take the grandkids and let you know.

  • Back to Black

    Amy Winehouse film biography. Seems to concern itself with her love life as much as her music. She reminds me of Janis Joplin. Music biographies have been a staple of Hollywood since sound was added to silent film (The Jazz Singer). My favorites – Sid and Nancy, Walk the Line, The Doors, Immortal Beloved, Straight Out of Compton. Too many to name. Hopefully Back to Black will join my list.

  • Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes

    During the Covid quarantines, streaming became a way of passing the time. One of my time consuming choices was watching all the Planet of the Apes movies. The original Planet of the Apes film starring Charlton Heston is classic. I saw it when it came out in the Sixties. We all walked out of the theater in a state of awe. Movies were wonderful back then. They did not require two hours and twenty five minutes to tell their stories. But I will endure the extended time watching this one because I have been looking forward to this latest installment for years. I guarantee it will be good, though likely too long.

  • Fall Guy

    Ryan Gosling recently of Barbie, and Emily Blunt recently of Oppenheimer A very nice pairing with explosive chemistry. The previews are precious; a stuntman and a film Director making a super action movie while being chased by gangsters. Very nice.

  • Tarot

    There seems to be very little downside to low budget horror films. Blood everywhere. Screaming young girls cowering as disgusting fatalities are about to take place. And I know this just from the awful previews. I did like Late Night With the Devil. Very original. And Sting which no one went to see and disappeared after one week about an alien spider in a tenement apartment building. I did like that one while covering my eyes several times.

  • Civil War

    This is a major film by the Director of Ex Machina and other films that are both exciting and stimulating. I am guessing a Democrat is president, and Republicans start a Civil War, and all hell and worse breaks loose. Maybe the opposite. Even if both of these plots that I’ve made up are wrong, you can count on action in the movie and arguments after you’ve seen the movie.

  • Arcadian

    Just the way I like it. Another I know nothing about it movie. I looked up the stars. Lo and behold, it’s the latest in a long line of Nicolas Cage films made probably on a shoestring budget. I watch them all, mostly in the theaters, but sometimes on streaming if South Point doesn’t play them.

  • Sting

    Nope. Not the very fun Paul Newman, Robert Redford caper movie that is beloved by everyone who has ever seen it. This is a giant spider movie that is only 93 minutes long (good). Since this movie is opening against Civil War and Nicolas Cages’s Arcadian, I may miss it in the theaters if it doesn’t last a second week

  • Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire

    Amazingly the young grandkids go for these Legendary Pictures Monsterverse battles of the titans. There is even an Apple TV series first season called Monarch that intelligently brings these same monsters to streaming TV. But I continue to recommend the recent Japanese Academy Award winner for Best Visual Effects with a genuine backstory that equals the battles between post war Japan and the great Godzilla.

  • Late Night With the Devil

    I know enough that I look forward to this low budget late night talk show possession movie, but not enough to recommend it. Since the less I know going into a movie, the better I can enjoy it’s upside, I am avoiding all previews and reviews and keeping my fingers crossed.

  • Knox Goes Away

    Directed and starring Michael Keaton in a small time action picture, this movie is right up my alley. Al Pacino, Marsha Gay Harden, and their ilk capture their small roled quite efficiently, and this little film is definitely a must see for those who like old-fashioned hired killer movies.

  • Dune: Part Two

    This is a tough one. The great David Lynch filmed the original Dune in 1984. For many that first version is an embarrassment. I would not go that far though I do not object to viewers who feel that way. Personally I think Ethan Cohn’s solo effort Drive Away Dolls is the real embarrassment. Anyway Dune: Part One was good enough to deserve a Part Two (although the 1984 Dune, less than two hours long and covering the entire classic novel explained the backstory in a much simpler fashion.) But I am not complaining. Just wanted to mention that I am personally caught up in movie lengths as the two and a half hour plus movie run times are not yet part of my DNA.

  • Kung Fu Panda 4

    Yes. I am taking the grandkids. The previews remind me of Kung Fu Pandas 1, 2, and 3. I guess that will be good enough for them as long as I break out the big bucks for concessions. If you happen to catch Jack Black promoting his voice role, I warn you his scrubby bearded face and growing belly are a surprise.

  • Godzilla Minus One

    This is a brand new English dubbed Japanese rethinking and tribute to the English dubbed (except for Raymond Burr) 1950s original. Bring the kids.

    Wrong! This is a terrific, subtitled flick; a great movie with incredible sound design and award worthy effects, with excellent screenwriting, and an unbelievable final battle that dissolves into an unexpected denouement. The premium XD theater presentation for this one is worth every extra penny.
