MINI MOVIE REVIEWS

Mini Movie Reviews


by Le Anne Lindsay Editor of Tinsel & Tine

It's never been my goal to post a review or what I prefer to call a "focus", on every movie I see. If I screen 3 movies in a week, more often than not, I tend to only pick one to write about. Then once I started doing the weekly radio show "That's Show Biz with Chuck Darrow", that often became my review of the movie, no separate post. However, I still like to give my overall opinion on some of the movies I see, via social media, but then how do you keep track of them? So, I've created another Tinsel & Tine "Warehouse" where I post the embedded social media Mini Movie Reviews starting from February 2017:


WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
Weekly Contributor



SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING
MCU



Cinema Classics Seminar:REBECCA
Bryn Mawr Film Institute



TRANSFORMERS:THE LAST KNIGHT
5th Installment in the Franchise





ROUGH NIGHT
Debut for filmmaker Lucia Aniello




ALL EYEZ ON ME

#AllEyezOnMe instilled in me a new appreciation for Tupac that I never really had before. Demetrius Shipp jrbrings the magic of Pac to life! I know "All Eyez On Me" will be compared to "Straight Outta Compton" which I consider a VERY good movie, "All Eyez" is not as polished, it's a little more raw, but in some ways I like that better. Put it this way, I'd watch "Straight Outta Compton" again and again, cause it's such a good ride." All Eyez" doesn't quite have that vibe but deserves mad props and recognition. Great sound and rap performances.  And Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) who plays Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mother, is so strong. Look for her as Okoye in Black Panther 2018.

FREE FIRE MOVIE

A post shared by LeAnne Lindsay (@tinsel_tine) on

@freefiremovie A Ben Wheatley film. Starring Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor - Surprisingly a movie full of shooting, whizzing bullets, taking cover, fighting, groaning, crawling, hopping, slithering, dragging, hobbling, cursing, limping, bleeding and double crossing is super fun and amusing in this context.

T & T's LAMB (movie bloggers association) Score: 3 outta 5

THE GREAT WALL


TABLE 19


13TH DOCUMENTARY


PERSONAL SHOPPER 

THE SALESMAN

An apartment building starts to collapse and everyone must evacuate and find new places to live, including thespian husband, Emad and wife, Rana who are a part of a community theater doing Arthur Miller's "Death of a Saleman" one of the other actors in the play offers them an apartment in his building, but neglects to mention the apartment used to belong to a woman with paid gentlemen callers. One night after their performance Rana goes home without Emad who needs to stay late at the theater. An hour or so later when their apt buzzer rings, Rana assumes it's Emad, buzzes him in, leaves the front door ajar, while she jumps into the shower. Turns out it was not Emad and she lets in a stranger who assumes she's like the former tenant and assaults her.

From here it could turn into a story that unravels a marriage which appeared solid from the outside, only the trauma brings up things never before discussed between the couple, causing friction. Or it could turn into a revenge film. It tries to do a little of each, and goes no where, very slowly, with neither scenario finding ground. Not to mention, when the assailant is revealed, you feel anger at Rana for not mentioning an obvious fact, that doesn't change the reality that she's been violated, but it does change the severity and how her husband may have handled things if he'd known.

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

CITY OF GOLD

CITY OF GOLD
The key to deciphering both the city it beautifully depicts and the man who eats it best - City of Gold

What Jonathan Gold, Los Angeles Times food critic/writer, has done for food writing journalism and for the restaurants that he loves, the movie, City of Gold has done for Jonathan Gold and Los Angeles and its surrounding environs – it has planted taco covered kisses on them... READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
