Movie reviews, Cinema and DVD

In the season of Baltimore Pride, the Creative Alliance is offering a remarkable cavalcade of LGBT films and presentations during Rainbow Fest. Running from July 28th to 30th, the fifth anniversary of the film festival is expanding to include the comedic wit of author Isaac Oliver, a glittering assemblage of happy hours, as well as a drag party hosted by Betty O’Hellno.

Don’t Hate on Ghostbusters

Not all clients are happy with their ’busting, but there’s a lot to like

You have had to have been living on a remote island with no internet access for the last year to not know there’s a new Ghostbusters movie hitting the big screen. You probably also know that from the second the project was announced with an all-female cast of ʼbusters, the interwebs have been set afire with a type of vitriol usually reserved for warring political parties (and we’ve had plenty of that, too). There will be those who refuse to see the move on principle – and seriously, people, it’s just a movie! – there will be those who go to “hate watch,” and there will be those who are genuinely excited to see the film either out of curiosity or just because it’s been decades since we’ve seen a new Ghostbusters movie. And, for the most part, they will be pleasantly surprised.

What do you get when you combine a first time feature director with the writers of the Neighbors movies, and add a dash of Zac Efron? You get the surprisingly hilarious comedy Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates, that’s what! The plot is very high concept, so much so that it was probably greenlighted on a single sentence pitch to the studio: Two brothers, the life of every party, are told they must bring dates to their sister’s wedding so things don’t get out of control.

A bleak and bloody thriller, Triple 9 (Universal / Open Road) won’t do much for the image of cops, but will likely find a following among Trump supporters, particularly for its nasty depiction of minority characters.

Serving Up the Laughs

Central Intelligence

We’ve been seeing the previews for months now with an overweight Dwayne Johnson dancing in the shower to En Vogue’s “My Loving (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and his transformation into the Johnson we know and love. And now we finally get to see the how and why of that transformation as Central Intelligence finally hits the big screen.
