One Minute Reviews

Cherry [2021]

Tom Holland is everything in Cherry. He’s carrying the whole movie on his shoulders. The good and not so good parts.

The Secrets We Keep [2020]

The Secrets We Keep doesn’t waste anytime letting the viewer know what’s going on. Less than 15 minutes into it’s 1h37min run, you already know the whole story. And it just goes stale from there.

Alex Rider [2020]

Alex Rider is a fun british spy series based on the novels of the same name by Anthony Horowitz. I didn’t know that when I started watching this Amazon Prime Video exclusive, but It’s noticeably clear during the show.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League [2021]

After a lot of campaigning from fans and the actors themselves, we finally get to the Justice League, the way Zack Snyder wanted to do it. It’s completely different, and long.

Allen v. Farrow [2021]

Allen V. Farrow will not be the one stopping Woody Allen’s career. But if half of what’s presented in this four-parts HBO documentary is true, the public pressure should not stop until it does.

Moxie [2021]

There’s not much to say about Moxie. Haven’t we seen enough movies about a problematic white teen? This sweet coming-of-age story comes up a little too short when it comes to fully addressing its story’s timely themes.

Eddie the Eagle [2016]

The story of Eddie Edwards (Taron Egerton), the notoriously tenacious British ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics with the help of the most unlikely coach, Bronson Peary (Hugh Jackman).

Palmer [2021]

Palmer wasn’t my first choice for a Saturday evening movie, but Ryder Allen and a good performance by Justin Timberlake made it a good and powerful movie.

Coming 2 America [2021]

Eddie Murphy is announcing to the world that he’s back with Coming 2 America, a sequel to his late 1980s smash hit Coming to America! Sadly, it’s not a worthy one.

Coming to America [1988]

Eddie Murphy, star, co-writer, and co-producer has dealt audiences the movie equivalent of a royal flush. Murphy gives his sweetest, most touching, and most genuinely likable performance, playing a character who embraces society instead of holding it in contempt.

WandaVision [2021]

WandaVision is a bold move by Marvel Studios to set up the next phase of the MCU in the most unexpected way.

Irresistible [2020]

Written and produced by Jon Stewart, Irresistible is a political comedy about a Democratic strategist (Steve Carell) who tries to help a local candidate win an election in a small right-wing town.

Chick Fight [2020]

Chick Fight will not win any awards this year. Also, it doesn’t have to. It’s actually a great entertainment and background noise when you’re doing chores during covid lockdowns.
