Another week, another rundown of that sweet, sweet content! Here’s what I was up to this week in terms of film writing.
It’s only January, but I’ve already seen one of my favorite movies of the year – the delightful sequel to 2014’s Paddington. It’s a great, sophisticated kid’s movie that elicits as many giggles as it does poignant homilies about kindness and tolerance. Read my review here.
In my continuing TV coverage for Consequence of Sound, I got a sneak peek at Amazon’s answer to Black Mirror, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, and wrote about its best episode. It’s also the second time I wrote about something called “The Commuter,” so that was a treat. Read my piece here.
It wasn’t all sunshine and roses this week – I also wrote about Paul McGuigan’s dull, anemic Gloria Grahame drama Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool. Bening may be excellent in it, but that doesn’t save the rest of it from being a slog. Read more in my review here.
