Make a point to catch an incredible “real love story” when the Netflix Original Documentary “A SECRET LOVE” premiers next Wednesday April 29, 2020 on NETFLIX!

A secret Love

A SECRET LOVE tells an incredible love story between Terry Donahue and Pat Henschel, whose relationship spans nearly seven decades. Terry played in the women’s professional baseball league, inspiring the hit movie A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN.
But the film did not tell the real-life story of the women who remained closeted for most of their lives. This documentary follows Terry and Pat back to when they met for the first time, through their professional lives in Chicago, coming out to their conservative families and grappling with whether or not to get married. Facing the hardships of aging and illness, their love proves resilient as they enter the home stretch. Directed by Chris Bolan and produced by Alexa L. Fogel, Brendan Mason and Ryan Murphy. Executive produced by Blumhouse, and in association with Now This.

Enjoy a few WORKSHEETS with the kids, in anticipation of NETFLIX’s NEW FILM – THE WILLOUGHBY’s – Hitting on your small screen Wednesday April 22, 2020!

Do you believe in the “chances of life”?  Do you believe that once slight maneuver in the sequence of events can change your love life forever?  This is the premise behind the new Netflix Original film LOVE WEDDING REPEAT, as we meet Jack (Sam Claflin) about to walk his sister down the isle of her “perfect” wedding in Italy, even though he will have figure out a way for his sister to avoid an uninvited quest with a diabolical secret, and angry ex-girlfriend, a sleeping sedative mishap, all while trying to reunite the girl of his dreams from many moons ago…leading us to see if Jack will get his very own “happy ending”, of will the fates intervene??

Set in the beauty and ambiance of Italy, you can’t help but be taken in not only by this films beautiful Tuscan setting, but by its incredible cast of characters too.  I was also enthralled throughout by this films ingenious premise, on how one small maneuvering of our existence, whether orchestrated by our own demise, or those around us, can instantly change every aspect of our lives.  Kudos to Director and Writer Dean Craig too, for creating a film that ventures down the many different ways these changes impact our futures,  and with multiple alternate endings throughout too, leading you to guess the entire time if anyone in this fabulous film ever ends up getting their very own “happy ending” or not…

I’m not always sold on Netflix Original films, but this one is definitely one of their best creations so far this year ~ so plan to sit back, relax and enjoy LOVE WEDDING REPEAT, at your earliest convenience 😉

To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

p17829062_v_v8_aa

This review is brought to you by Krissy Rechtlich

 

To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

Director: Michael Fimognari

Writers: Sofia Alvarez and J. Mills Goodloe

Starring: Noah Centineo (the Netflix heartthrob) and Lana Condor

The Netflix heartthrob, Noah Centineo, is back reprising his role as Peter Kavinsky, picking up where he left off – hopelessly in love with Lara Jean Covey. However, things get a little complicated (again) after another recipient of Lara Jean’s letters comes back into the picture. To refresh your memory, in the first movie, To All the Boys I Loved Before, Lara Jean sends out five letters.

  1. Our very own Peter Kavinsky, of course.
  2. Her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh Sanderson.
  3. Lucas Krapf – the token gay best friend.
  4. Kenny Donati, whose letter had been returned for the wrong address.
  5. And, the new love interest: John Ambrose McClaren.

As charming and genuine as I thought this film to be, it violated a pet peeve of mine. Consistency. At the very end of the first movie, John Ambrose had already been cast as a young, blonde Caucasian boy that showed up on Lara Jean’s doorstep with her letter in hand and a smile on his face. In P.S. I Still Love You, John Ambrose had been re-cast as Pavel Piddocke. In this version, instead of showing up at her doorstep, the new John Ambrose sends a letter in the mail, responding to hers, and it takes Lara Jean completely by surprise.

This deliberate oversight aside, the film functions as a lesser but more modern and realistic version of Mean Girls. Our conflicted heroine, Lara Jean, battles her own jealousy and inferiority as she falls in love with what might be, in every way, her opposite and she must choose between who is right for her and who she is in love with. The moments that were meant to be dramatic paled in comparison to the first film; however, if you’re just looking for a cute film to watch on a snowy Sunday afternoon filled with attractive people – this would do fine.

Overall: 6/10.

Not the best Netflix film. But not the worst.

THE TWO POPES – Rated PG-13 – 2 hrs. 5 mins.

MV5BY2RiOTc1YmYtMDk0Yy00ZWI4LTgzN2YtYTg2ZDZmOGIwNTA1XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTMxODk2OTU@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,675,1000_AL_.jpg

THE TWO POPES – Rated PG-13 – 2 hrs. 5 mins.

DIRECTOR:  Fernando Meirelles

WRITER:  Anthony McCarten

STARRING:  Jonathan Pryce & Anthony Hopkins

Inspired by true events, this film ventures into the life Cardinal Bergoglio (Jonathan Price), who is rather frustrated with the Catholic Church and the direction it’s headed, so he seeks out approval from Pope Benedict (Anthony Hopkins) to retire from his post in 2012.  Facing his own inner-demons, and what he feels may just be what the Catholic Church needs in the 21st century, Pope Benedict denies Cardinal Bergoglio his request, as these two leaders find themselves anguishing over what’s right for the Church ~ pinning tradition against progress for the betterment of the Catholic Church.  As these two men confront their pasts, and strive for a sense of forgiveness for one another, these two very different men, finally reach a devout understanding of the road they must forge ahead, for their billions of followers, all around the world.

I give THE TWO POPES a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN:  Whether you are a devout Catholic, or just intrigued by the fascinating world of the Vatican, the performances of Pryce as Pope Francis, and Hopkins as Pope Benedict, are some of the finest work in film this year.  And even though this film will be popping on Netflix is just a few weeks, I must suggest that you head out to the Tivoli in the Central West End to catch this beautifully crafted film this weekend on the big screen, as seeing it on your television, just won’t do it justice!  From the incredible performances by Pryce and Hopkins respectively (Pryce is nominated for Best Actor and Hopkins for Best Supporting Actor for this year’s Golden Globes), combined with the incredible imagery throughout every inch of this film, The Two Popes is destined to be receiving accolades all throughout this upcoming awards season, and rightfully so.  And as the year comes to a close, I must give Kudos to Netflix this year, as they have crafted some truly exceptional work, including this latest creation, as it deepens your conviction to the evolution of Life, of Faith, and of humanity itself as well, every step of the way…

MARRIAGE STORY – Rated R – 2 hrs. 16 mins. – A NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM

“Gripping throughout, and more powerfully moving with each passing frame, Marriage Story takes you emotionally to where few films have dared to venture this year…” – Kathy Kaiser, matineechat.com / AM590 THE FAN 

MARRIAGE STORY – Rated R – 2 hrs. 16 mins. – A NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM

Directed & Written by Noah Baumbach

Starring:  Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver, Merritt Wever, Laura Dern, Ray Liotta, Julie Hagerty, Alan Alda, and Azhy Robertson 

Music by Randy Newman 

Drawing from his own life experience with divorce, including the demise of his parent’s marriage, his own divorce from Jennifer Jason Leigh in 2010, plus the added bonus of gaining knowledge on the ill-fated marriages of many of his family and friends, Director/Writer Noah Baumbach has created a captivating, and authentically real film, facing head on the realities of life, love, heartbreak, and what is the most important thing in this life for all of us, Family!

As we meet the characters within the frames of this exquisite film, we are thrust into the lives of Stage Director Charlie (Adam Driver), and his beautiful wife and actress Nicole (Scarlett Johansson), who are at the height of their marriage disintegrating, even though neither of them presently has the strength, or fortitude, to face the situation head on…

As they both struggle to keep their careers, and marriage intact, it seems that the inevitable is happening, when Nicole seeks refuge and a new start, with her family in LA.  Let the bicoastal de-coupling, and custody battle begin, as Charlie must stay focused on his Stage Production, and Company in NYC, but alas with the help of numerous Lawyers assisting in the demise of their relationship, including Nora Fanshaw (Laura Dern), Bert Spitz (Alan Alda), and blood thirty tyrant Jay (Ray Liotta), anything is possible!  Now with the pain of divorce looming, and the failure they both feel consuming them more and more with each passing week, Charlie and Nicole must focus on not letting this situation totally implode their lives, or the life of the most important person to them both, their son Henry (Azhy Robertson), as they try to form a “new normal” of what works best, for everyone involved…

I give MARRIAGE STORY a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN!  Even though it pops on Netflix today 12/6,  I suggest that you venture to catch this film at a theater near you instead (It’s showing at Landmark’s Tivoli in St. Louis), as the performances throughout are so exceptional, they are beckoning you to experience them initially on the big screen.  The entire cast throughout this film is sheer perfection, from Johansson playing the struggling actress and Mother, trying to come to terms with her husband’s aloofness for her own passions, career, and his infidelity too.  Dern is perfection as well throughout, playing lawyer extraordinaire, playing hard ball on Nicole and Henry’s behalf, every step of the way.   Although, for me, the ultimate standout performance throughout every inch of this film comes from Driver, as he hits his full acting stride with the portrayal of this character, as he immerses you in the intense pain and anguish this Divorce is inflicting upon his son, himself, and ultimately, the woman he just knew would be in his life with, forever.  2019 has to be hailed as Adam Driver’s “best year yet”, as his performance here ~ along with his incredible performance in THE REPORT ~ and his much anticipated performance still to hit on the big screen, with his next installment as Kylo Ren in Star Wars : The Rise of Skywalker, he is proving, without a doubt, that he has what it takes to make his mark in Hollywood!  And I must send some kudos in the direction of Writer/Director Noah Baumbach as well, as his muse of real-life experiences which he recreates for us to enjoy on the big screen, has once again served him very well, as this latest creation hits on my list of the Best films of 2019!

THE IRISHMAN:  Rated R – 3 hrs. 29 mins. – Hitting in theaters NOW and on Netflix November 27th

 “Astoundedly crafted every step of the way!  Netflix is giving the Studios a run for their money again this year!” Kathy Kaiser, Matineechat.com

THE IRISHMAN:  Rated R – 3 hrs. 29 mins. – Hitting in theaters NOW and on Netflix November 27th

DIRECTOR:  Martin Scorsese

WRITERS:  Based on the book by Charles Brandt, Screenplay by Steven Zaillian 

STARRING:  Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale and Harvey Keitel

Based on the supposed true Story of his life, we meet the notorious about town Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro), working as a mobster for the Russell Bufalino’s (Joe Pesci) Crime family, and looking out for his friend and confidant, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) too.  Caught between his life as a mobster, and his beautiful family, filled with daughters that he truly loves, Frank finds as the years roll by, keeping Russell’s boys at bay, and keeping Hoffa’s mouth from setting off a firestorm, is becoming a full-time job.

When Hoffa manages to finally piss-off the wrong guys, Frank has no choice but to follow orders, and do what he’s told…and if what Frank decided to share later on in his life is really true, then we just may finally know what lead to the mysterious disappearance of Hoffa, back in 1975…

I give THE IRISHMAN a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN!  We have been waiting quite a while for Netflix Studios most star-studded film to arrive, and now that it’s here, you most definitely will not be disappointed Scorsese manages yet again to make a Mobster movie for the ages, as whether you believe the story that Frank Sheeran shared while wasting away in a retirement home is true or not, this film will lead you to believe every inch of it!  DeNiro is superb, playing the Mobster/Teamster/Family man Frank Sheeran.  Pacino is even better in my eyes, playing the arrogant ruler of the Teamsters Union, Jimmy Hoffa.  And when you add in the superb performances too from Pesci, Romano, and Cannavale, you have a film filled with lots of Italians, that really know their stuff!  Even more astounding to me than the fabulous directing and acting throughout, is the way this film literally just flies by as you are viewing it, even though it comes in at 3 and ½ hours long.  I was also truly impressed by the digitalized de-aging techniques that were used to make these rather mature actors, look as if they were 30-something again.  Believe me when I tell you, from the extensive and very entertaining storyline, to the fabulous acting, to the flawless cinematography throughout, THE IRISHMAN is going to put Netflix at the top of heap come awards season again this year – as apparently snagging the nod for the Best Foreign Film last year with Roma, was just the tip of the iceberg.  So, make plans to head out to a theater near you throughout he next few weeks, as this is one film you have to catch on the big screen, long before you can tune it in on your small screen at home on Netflix, starting November 27th.

DOLOMITE IS MY NAME – Rated R

MV5BMzFiYWQxYzgtOThmYi00ZmIwLWFlZWMtMzk2NTI2YTYzMjkyXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTkxNjUyNQ@@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,675,1000_AL_

DOLOMITE IS MY NAME – Rated R

By Mary Cox 

Raunchy is the only word I can think of when I think of “Dolomite is My Name.” The film is the real-life story of Rudy Ray Moore who was best known as “Dolomite.” Moore, (Eddie Murphy), was a failed musician in the 1970’s who became a sensation as a stand-up comedian. He was known for his rhymes.He is considered the father of Hip-Hop. Moore decides to make a movie using all of his own money and money he had to borrow because no one else will finance it in the movie industry.

“Dolomite is My Name” is the first movie that Eddie Murphy has made in three years. This Netflix movie has no shortage of financial support as witnessed by its star-studded cast: it is full of African-American movie stars. Murphy is supported by Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, Chris Rock, Snoop Dogg and Keegan-Michael Key. Da Vine Joy Randolph is Lady Reed. Randolph and Murphy bring a very warm human touch to their roles. You really feel for them and it made the film for me. Moore was an over-the-top kind of guy and Murphy seems to love hamming it up. This role was made for Eddie Murphy. Craig Brewer directed and was able to bring out the best in his cast. The successful writing team of Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who wrote “The People vs. Larry Flynt” and “Man on the Moon” and many more, penned “Dolomite is My Name.” I loved the costumes. Moore was known for his flamboyant outfits. His cronies all adopted garish clothes too. The costume designers must have had a ball trying to replicate the costumes. People who are turned off by the F-bomb and nudity will hate this film and need to stay far away. Moore seemed to call everyone a Mother-F bomb. If you can get through the risqué language and nudity, there is an interesting story underneath. But beware, there is more vulgarity in this film than usual. I left the theater happy for Moore and his cohorts and generally feeling good about the film.
“Dolomite is My Name” can be seen at the 24:1 cinema and Moolah Cinema on October 18 th . It will open on Netflix on October 25 th .

I give this film 4 stars.

Round Table interview with Marlon Wayans, chatting about his new Netflix film – SEXTUPLETS.

MV5BMTRjZjExMTEtZDk2Ni00ZGU2LTg4YmYtM2I1NTE0ZGVmOGI2XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMTkxNjUyNQ@@._V1_

Round Table interview with Marlon Wayans, chatting about his new on Netflix – SEXTUPLETS.

When you meet someone as authentically genuine and tuned in as Marlon Wayans, you can’t help but to admire him, and his talents. And as you’ll soon find out, his passion for his work, and his family, are what keep him striving to do his best work, each and every time.

As our interview started, Marlon explained how much his sister Diedre loved his new film, “She was so excited about the fact that in this film, I don’t hump anything, she didn’t see my ass, not one time.”  She said “I love this movie; this is for everybody.  This is what the world needs.  They need to play this at the Hong Kong airport…it’s going to heal the world…:”

Tom Stockman from Wearemoviegeeks.com shared with Marlon that he thought this film is his best work, and that it totally wore him out just watching it.  Marlon laughed and said “I’m still tired, I need an IV after this.  I need like 10 of them.  I need to cleanse…this film was like going to war…and I just can’t recover…”

Marlon also shared that this film was the hardest thing he’s ever done…” Like, when I’m shooting a scene and it has four characters in it, I at least have to do it four to five times, and each day is a different character.  It’s not like I had monitors around, oh like this is what I’m doing, I have to remember what I am doing, because there is an ear rig in my ear, so I have to remember what I did as Dawn, in order to react like Alan, but then there is another person in the scene, it’s all interactive.  The camera is always moving.  The motion capture that we did was like doing Avenger technology with a soul plane budget.”

Kevin Brackett of Reviewstl.com asked Marlon if they had to film on greenscreen to get the seamless interaction with all 6 of his characters?  “No not really.  Since we shot it on motion capture camera, your moves have to be in rhythm and your eyelines have to be perfect.  Like the last scene where Ethan and Alan meet each other, and they are circling each other, that is a hard move to do.  I had a stick for my eyes to follow.  And Because I person couldn’t do it in the same rhythm as another, but since they were all me, and my rhythm, I could do it.  If you check out my IGTV you can see what I’ve put up to show what we were doing.  And the last scene in the film with Jasper and Alan, and Russell and the Mom, if you look at the floor, there are marks all over the floor, it’s like a dance.  Everyone is choregraphed to go to all the marks on the floor and then we erase them all, but I’m doing everything in the scene…so when I’m doing Russell and I’m reacting to Allen, they really aren’t having a conversation, it’s me talking to a stick!”

I shared that I thought that filming this way had to be really hard to do.  But Marlon assured us that this is what he was meant to do “It is hard, but this is what I have been training to do my whole life.  This is like when I was five and played “Casey at the Bat” in my PS11 play, this is what I’ve always wanted to do.  It’s what I’ve always dreamt of doing.  I want to be the biggest star in the world, and in the meantime, you have to do the work.  And have the confidence and continue to get better.  That’s why I started doing standup, because stand up allows me to be a more engaging performer, and a better communicator.  It teaches you when you need to let up on the gas, and when to excel.  This is the most appropriate movie I’ve done…audience wise.  I mean I usually go Rated R, crazy, fluids everywhere.  This one is restrained, and everyone can see it.  It’s exciting to have finally made a movie that my Dad can see.

And of course, I had to ask Marlon which one of these fabulous characters he had the most fun playing?  “I had fun playing them all, but I really liked Ethan.  He was a little mischievous, he was a shapeshifter.  He started out trying to steal Alan’s identity, but end’s up having a heart, and you realize that he had a really tough road along the way too.  And as an Actor, Alan and Ethan are identical, so for me, being able to pull off the same guy, but with a totally different feel, I thought that would be impressive to me to pull off…”

To change it up a bit, Tom Stockman of Wearemoviegeeks.com, asked Marlon about a pet project he talked about last time he was in town, about doing a biopic about Richard Pryor which Tom thought he would be perfect for…”This project isn’t happening right now, but I trust God, as I know if it doesn’t happen, it’s not meant to be.  It means that you have to did deeper.   I feel there is always a silver lining.  Getting the role of Pryor, ended up bringing me to the stage.  The method actor in me also brought me to stage to play my comedic hero.  And even though the movie didn’t come to fruition, I stayed on the journey of Comedy.  I did my first special. It’s funny because I started out wanting to play a great, and now, I want to be a great.  So, instead of worrying about doing the Richard Pryor story, I’m living, trying to be the Marlon Wayans story.  And I think having that perspective about my life, that when it doesn’t happen, it wasn’t meant to be, is a good thing.  And now if the movie happens now, because I’ve stayed on this journey, and because I’ve been doing standup, because I’ve been evolving as a comedian, now I can look at that project with my past experience and go, “Where is he at in this part of the standup?  Is he about to film a Special?  Is on tour?  Is he trying to figure it out?  How big is the venue? Is this the first show, the second show or the third show of the night.  I know now how to play the details of it from a performers perspective, because I’ve put in 9 years of method acting by being on a stage every weekend to become a comedian, and when you combine that with my acting skills, I think I could do this project so much more justice now.  And if this project never gets made, I hope at some point in my life, some young comedian will want to do the Marlon Wayans story.

Rocky Knuckles from DeLux Magazine asked Marlon about bringing his entourage of himself, Rick and Mike to another project, and does he feel that he would want to return to his past, to recreate some of his classic work “I would love to bring things back, I would love nothing more than to bring some projects from my past back, because I think society needs those types of films now.  People think people are sensitive.  I don’t think that people are sensitive.  I think people are being programmed to be sensitive, but that’s very unamerican.  We live in a place where our constitution states that we have freedom of speech, we have freedom of thought, we have freedom of opinion and I think we all need to exercise these things, and stop being programmed by social media, as they keep trying to state what the themes of our country are.  We are individuals, and as an individual you have the right to have your own sense of humor.  If I find fun in a funny ass racist joke, I’m going to laugh.  Look, Don Rickles had some really funny racist jokes, why can’t I laugh at that now?   Why would I go “Don Rickles isn’t funny because that is not appropriate? “Don Rickles was funny then, he’s funny now.  Here’s the beautiful thing about White Chicks…they tell me that I couldn’t make White Chicks now?  And I say sure I could, because you know who loves white chicks the most?  WHITE CHICKS!  So, you know what that makes it…a god damn good joke.  A good joke is when the people you are sending up, are laughing the loudest.  So as long as you are doing things with kid gloves, and you are making it an inclusive laugh, there is no wrong in comedy like that.  Offensive is if I do Dawn, and black women hate it, I got a problem.  But if I do Dawn, and Dawn is the black woman’s favorite character, then boo, I did that.  I mean every now and then you are going to get sensitive people, because some people are just raised in a bubble, but that’s not PEOPLE.  But this is the influence of other countries trying to squash our first amendment rights, by changing the narrative throughout our country through social media, through twitter and fake accounts.  And then the media picks it up.  I do standup every weekend, and people laugh at the darkest and craziest joke as long as it’s funny.  If you get “ohhhhh” in the dark, and you bring them back with a big laugh, people are going to respect you for that.”

Kevin Brackett of Reviewstl.com sighted that Marlon has stated in the past how Eddie Murphy has influenced his comedy, as he wondered if he spoke with Eddie about playing the multiple roles in SEXTUPLETS, like Murphy’s done in numerous films? “No, I talked with him when we were making Norbet, and were doing a scene together, and I said this has to be so much fun getting to do so all these characters, and he said, “yeah but man, this is work”. Yeah but you get to stretch and do all these characters, and he says :Heh, I said this is work”.  Now fast forward to my nephew being on the set of SEXTUPLETS, and he’s my stand in, and my body double, and he is like “This has to be so much fun uncle, playing all these characters, and I said to him “This is work…”

And I had to one more question to ask Marlon before our time was through, so I had to know if he channeled any of this family members while performing any of these incredible characters in the film?  “Dawn is a combination of two of my sisters…and Ethan is my sister Diedre and my brother Damon, back in their criminal days…”

Don’t miss your chance to check out the multi-talented Marlon Wayans in his new film Sextuplets, playing NOW on NETFLIX!
