The 21-Word Review: Glass Onion (Netflix)

What a waste of talent. And a chance to resurrect Christie-esque mysteries. And I still can't get over the  southern-ish accent.

The 21-Word Review: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book by Jerry Seinfeld

A gift from my daughter's boyfriend, so I can't gush. However, I really enjoyed reading how the comedy sausage is made.

The 21-Word Review: Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (Netflix)

The important part of the title is the "Guillermo del Toro" part, not the "Pinocchio" part. Amazing, but this ain't Disney.

The 21-Word Review: Black Adam (HBO Max)

One of the great mysteries of the universe is why a big star like Mr. Johnson can't make a great movie.

The 21-Word Review: Hustle (Netflix)

My suspicion is that Adam made this movie as an excuse to get to hang out with all his NBA heroes.

The 21-Word Review: All About Me by Mel Brooks

Excuse me, I'll be right back. I have a lot of movies to watch. And re-watch. I didn't realize how many.

The 21-Word Review: Triangle of Sadness (Delta In-Flight)

Steve suggested it or I would have passed it by. Very "White Lotus" but darker and stranger and often much grosser.

The 21-Word Review: One for the Money (Hotel HBO)

Having never read the books, I can confidently say that Ms Heigl was the perfect choice and should have made more.

The 21-Word Review: Savannah by John Jakes

My parents read his "North and South" series on the beach over the summer one year. A bit soapy for me.

The 21-Word Review: Bad Santa (Hotel Showtime)

When you decide to offend, sometimes the best option is to offend absolutely everyone. Just go for it - complete scorched earth.

The 21-Word Review: Disenchanted (Disney+)

Amy Adams's smile can cover a multitude of sins, and the actors are trying very hard, but it just doesn't work,

The 21-Word Review: Spirited (Apple TV)

Dickens, music, dancing, Ferrell, Reynolds, Spencer - all things that I like and should combine to a timeless classic, but somehow don't.

The 21-Word Review: Later by Stephen King

And sometimes they come in a box of three and one buys all three but finishes the last one weeks later.

The 21-Word Review: Joyland by Stephen King

Sometimes one needs more than one of them if the flights are especially long or the wait before takeoff is extended.

The 21-Word Review: The Colorado Kid by Stephen King

When taking long flights across the Pacific, one prefers an easy read that doesn't strain and can be easily put down.

The 21-Word Review: Enola Holmes 2 (Netflix)

A casting director somewhere was asked to find a shaved-head skinny kid for Stranger Things and imagined Ms. Brown. Amazing.

The 21-Word Review: Sheryl (Delta In-Flight)

Sure these biopics are designed to deify the subject, but the testimonials from industry legends imply the deification is absolutely justified.

The 21-Word Review: Emily the Criminal (Delta In-Flight)

Aubrey needed a chance to play something other than a version of her Parks and Rec character. Someone gave her one.

The 21-Word Review: Clerks III (Delta In-Flight)

I watched a lot of movies on planes last week. This is the only one that keeps coming back to me.

The 21-Word Review: Bodies, Bodies, Bodies (Delta In-Flight)

Pete Davidson and some comely young people die in ascending order of attractiveness. Pete dies first - hope that's not a spoiler.

Saturday, November 26, 2022

The 21-Word Review: Lightyear (Delta In-Flight)

Not terrible, but lacking the charm of Toy Story. I just didn't believe this movie infatuated Andy. (But I'm not 12.)

The 21-Word Review: The Commando (Delta In-Flight)

So thoroughly awful that I turned it off after 20 minutes choosing to stare blankly into the dark airplane void instead.

Thursday, November 24, 2022

The 21-Word Review: Minari (Delta In-Flight)

A movie that has been at the top of my "to watch" list for ages. Beautiful, except for the missing ending.

The 21-Word Review: Minions, the Rise of Gru (Delta In-Flight)

No, I did not wear a suit because (1) I'm not a teenager and (2) I was on a transpacific flight.
