The Way I See It – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 18th, 2020

Coming in with a perfectly timed-release just before the presidential election is Dawn Porter’s documentary The Way I See It, a wonderfully kind look back at the President Barack Obama administration from 2008 – 2016 through the eyes of Pete Souza (the chief photographer to Obama himself and his family). Produced by Laura Dern and showcasing both big and small moments for Obama as a world leader and a family man, Pete Souza tells his tale about what life was like being next to the President for eight years almost 24/7. The Way I See It is a phenomenal documentary that begs for a time not so long ago where all seemed happier and peaceful where despite if citizens disagree with a politician’s decisions, these leaders are deep down good people and in love with their family and friends – something that’s far from true from the current administration.

Mulan (2020) – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 3rd, 2020

 

“With lackluster CGI work, pitiful fight choreography that wouldn’t even excite a third-grader, along with zero musical numbers, funny characters to enjoy an adventure and grow alongside with, this live-action Mulan is better left unwatched.”

Another year, another live-action Disney remake travels to its mundane spotlight, only this time it’s headed to Disney+ exclusively for the asinine rental price of $30 on top of the current subscription payment. The Disney remake in question is Mulan, a phenomenal story with superhero elements about a young Chinese woman with supernatural abilities who disguises herself as a man, in place of her father, in order to join the Imperial Army. Unfortunately, this big-budget live-action remake is uneven and irregular in its tone with disorganized camerawork, stale performances due to a dull screenplay that comes across as the biggest mess of a movie that had the opportunity to be great. It wasn’t.

TENET – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 31st, 2020

At this point in his career, Christopher Nolan doesn’t care to explain anything to his audience because he knows they are already along for the ride. Tenet is by far his most befuddling and convoluted story yet, almost demanding multiple viewings to break down exactly what is unfolding on screen at times. While the basic plot is easy enough to follow, Nolan uses his trademarked folding of time to show multiple events happening at once in a kaleidoscope universe that only the Dark Knight director can get away with creating on-screen which will likely lend itself to years of Reddit theories and breakdowns. Using his previous films as a grab bag, Nolan dumps all of his tricks into this one; A heist (Inception), paranoia (Memento, The Prestige), car chases (The Dark Knight Trilogy), audience time manipulation (Dunkirk), characters wearing masks so you can’t understand them (Bane), and of course a Michael Caine cameo. Yet all of these tricks, which he has mastered, don’t translate to anything more than an attempt at a greatest hits album instead of something interesting. There is no doubt that the middle of the road Nolan blockbuster is better than 95% of what is put in theaters any given year but after Tenet one might wonder if a more focused script could have resulted in one of his top 3 films.

Bill & Ted Face The Music – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 27th, 2020

“Bill & Ted Face The Music is a ton of fun and is most triumphant.”

Throughout the centuries, there has always been brutality and war, fascist government regimes who aim to hurt people, and most recently – the current political and social climate that has boiled over into bloodshed and hatred. Luckily, there are flashes of excellent victories of peace and friendship due to the excellent friendship of San Dimas locals Bill & Ted. Their most Excellent Adventure saved the world with them traveling through time, collecting historical figures for their history report, and their Bogus Journey had them crossing paths with Death, God, and Satan as they traveled through heaven and hell, only to come back and play a song to unite the world in harmony. Now almost thirty years later, this everlasting duo tackles their most heinous adventure yet in Bill & Ted Face The Music as a now older Bill & Ted must play a newly written song that would save the universe, reality, and time before it implodes on itself, destroying all life. Bringing back cast and crew along with some heartwarming messages, this third film is a ton of fun and is most triumphant.

“The Personal History of David Copperfield is the most fulfilling movie and cheery film of the year thus far.”

With stories like Nicholas Nickelby, A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist, and Great Expectations – Charles Dickens is no doubt one of the greatest writers and storytellers in history. His grand opus is perhaps David Copperfield (not the slick present-day magician), but rather a young man who narrates his own life story and his journey through his younger years, crossing paths with many colorful characters and villains along the way. Film Director Armando Iannucci delivers such a tasteful, funny, and heartwarming adaption to this classic tale called The Personal History of David Copperfield, that it feels brand new in 2020 and is a film that should take audiences on a fantastic and fun-filled adventure for a couple of hours, forgetting the troubles in the real world, even for a little while.

Uncle Peckerhead – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 14th, 2020

“Uncle Peckerhead is the perfect film to see surrounded by loud, inebriated fans of genre filmmaking.”

Uncle Peckerhead truly surprised with just how fun of a movie it is from start to finish. My apprehension based on the name and the poster were unfounded as I enjoyed it, warts and all. Far from a perfect movie, there is still enough here to make even the most skeptical viewer admit they had an above-average time.

Boys State – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 14th, 2020

“Boys State is so much more than just another political documentary.”

Boys State could easily be written off by those who do not want to watch another “political documentary,” but this film is so much more. Boys State is an annual convention put on by the American Legion where about 1000 sixteen and seventeen-year-old boys travel to Austin to build their own government. I’m from Texas and had absolutely no idea that Boys State existed much less Girls State, and I can’t really tell you what the American Legion does… but here we are. Apparently, lots of political greats have attended Boys State in their home states including, Bill Clinton, Samuel Alito, Corey Booker, Rush Limbaugh, and Dick Cheney. The young men must go through an interview process and are voted to attend by members of the American Legion.

The Rental – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 22nd, 2020

“The Rental kicks into high gear horror.”

The Rental is the directorial debut of Dave Franco which focuses on a quick weekend getaway for two couples in the Pacific Northwest. The setup of this horror film really preys on the fears of staying in a stranger’s home and hiding secrets from your spouse. As the weekend gets more and more intense the emotional fears and lies become overshadowed by a more physical threat watching the couples’ every move from the dense Oregon fog. A slow burn at first, Franco’s thriller really kicks it into high gear for the final third of the movie where all the decisions you watched for the previous hour pay off in really believable ways as these four vacationers try to survive the night.

Lake Of Death – Shudder Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 22nd, 2020

“Lake of Death drowns in its own horror movie tropes.”

Lake of Death is a Norwegian horror movie that is new to the streaming service Shudder. It is a short 94-minute movie that repurposes countless horror movie tropes and setups but fails to execute them in a truly meaningful way.

The Beach House – Shudder Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 22nd, 2020

“The Beach House reminds you that sometimes romantic beach vacations can turn into an apocalyptic nightmare too!”

Everyone is understandably upset about the lack of typical summer activities this year due to Covid-19. No camps, no lake parties, no beach vacations, etc. Well, Shudder’s new movie The Beach House does everything it can to ruin the thought of a nice little romantic trip to the coast.

Palm Springs – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 14th, 2020

“Palm Springs might be one of my favorite romantic comedies in the last decade.”

Palm Springs might be one of my favorite romantic comedies in the last decade. The movie stars Andy Samberg as Nyles and Cristina Milioti as Sarah who finds themselves stuck in an endless time loop where they have to keep reliving the same day, which happens to be the day of Sarah’s sister’s wedding. Putting aside the obvious Groundhog Day comparisons the movie really does an incredible job of building on its premise and coming up with unique ways to push the story and characters forward. Saying much more about the plot would ruin the movie for a lot of people so the best advice I can give is don’t read too many reviews which seem to go out of their way to spoil some of the plot mechanisms.
