[Rating: Swiss Fist] First of all, I absolutely without a doubt would pay to watch Tessa Thompson read a phone book at this point, which is probably the main reason I was able to get through the somehow pathetically average Men in Black: International with a few solid chuckles and only a few more eye […]

The Dead Don’t Die is an offbeat, quirky comedy that doesn’t take itself seriously with performances by Murray and Driver that are worth the slow burn.

[Rating: Minor Rock Fist Down] A straightforward hagiography piece that celebrates its subject with little critical analysis, Botero is an instructive albeit unambitious documentary. Tracking the creative growth of Columbian painter/sculptor Fernando Botero, the film hits all of the expected notes of the artist’s professional maturation using testimonials from family members, curators, art historians, and […]
