Movie Guru's Current Movie Reviews


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.

  • Pandemic Moviegoing

    Moviegoing is a social event.  Popular movies require large crowds to eek out every last drop of entertainment.  Some of us prefer empty theaters, but most expect their movie experience to include fellow customers.  We are still not there yet except for the big budget, recognizable, Hollywood products like those from Marvel and DC.  Thank goodness for the big screen release of Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick.  Finally adult audiences have found a movie they really like and have filled the theaters.   Hopefully Elvis will bring these moviegoers back into theaters again.  Then let’s hope the film adaptation of Where the Crawdads Sing will keep them coming.

  • DC League of super pets

    Last chance to party with the grandchildren   Unwelcome school begins any day now   Super heroes have super hero pets and here we go   Minions was still the best family film of this summer but I would probably put this second ahead of light year.

  • Mrs. Harris goes to Paris

    English actress Leslie Mannville is a hard-working char woman who lost her husband in the war   She saves for a Christian Dior dress and travels to Paris   Things happen and devastation is replaced by genuine happiness   Yep   This is a great film if all the blockbusters this summer haven’t scrambled your brain.

  • Nope

    Jordan Peeles avant-garde sci-fi horror follow up to his breakouts get out and us   Walking around our theater these days I have been giving the film 2 mopes out of four   I watched it again and will say that for get out an us fans, it’s 4 nopes out of four   I recommend leaving the 12 and unders out of the building if only because of the chimpanzee scenes.

  • Thor: Lpve and Thunder

    Marvel fans are in love with Thor.  And I hear and read a lot about Natalie Portman’s arms.  Wow, so big.  I am not a Marvel aficionado and get lost in every movie, but they have their moments almost always.  If you miss one, that is not the end of the world, but don’t waste your time  watching them on TV.  Two hundred million dollar CGI movies are greatly diminished on the small screen.  And where is Iron Man?  I hear he is dead.  That is sad.  I hope they revive him or at least make a prequel.  With the right actor, that could be fun.

  • Minions: The Rise of Gru

    Minions or Lightyear is the choice.  Minions is fun with young kids.  Lightyear is fun if you care about Buzz Lightyear as a human being and not a toy.  Neither is spectacular, but Minions is full of funny minions and a young Dru.  Lightyear gets heavy at times.  Take your pick or go to both, but don’t leave the kids at home.

  • Elvis

    Auteur director Baz Luhrmann of Romeo and Juliet and the Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge fame turns his unique talents to the story of Elvis, played by an unknown.  The unnecessary hook seems to be the immediately unrecognizable Tom Hanks portraying Elvis discoverer and less than scrupulous manager Colonel Tom Parker as an enlightened human being.  Now don’t forget I have only seen the trailers and could be totally wrong.  But my own understanding of the Colonel was he cared only for himself and the money.  And the money went down the drain at the roulette tables of the once upon a time Las Vegas Hilton.

  • Jurassic Park Dominion

    We use to call these kinds of movies “popcorn flicks.”  Not anymore.  With nachos and Angus hot dogs and Pizza Hut pizzas and bottled water and $15 T-shirts, what the heck.  I call them movie money pits that better pan out or else.  Thank goodness Jurassic Park Dominion is a crowd pleaser.  More than enough living dinosaurs of all varieties populating the Earth to excite the children, and the return of the original cast members to satisfy the adults.  This is big budget Hollywood that deserves to be seen in our premium XD theaters if you are looking for the fullest experience.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Archetypal Hollywood film making where the special effects support the story as opposed to overwhelming the story.  And the story is communal screen writing at its finest.  Lots of writers immersing themselves in the original Top Gun and creating a team of characters, both new faces and old, all working selflessly without egos for the greater good of the film.  Hats off to their Captain Tom Cruise.  He cares about his audience.
