Adults engage in a reckless, comical form of Tag

E-mail Print PDF
Rating: ««« out of ««««

Running Time: 100 minutes

Remember schoolyard games from childhood like Red Rover and Simon Says? This week sees the release of a film that details the intricacies of a similar game played by the same friends for several decades. Based on a true story (yep, this film is actually based on real events), Tag tells this bizarre tale of grown adults chasing each other around like little kids. It doesn’t all work, but when the movie is focused on the game itself, it comes to life.

Hogan (Ed Helms) is one of these pals, who explains the rules of the game and the fact that it is played for one single month a year (specifically May). Almost anything goes, and...

Rating: «« out of ««««

Running Time: 110 minutes

Just last year, the Ocean’s 11 series got a countrified redo from director Steven Soderbergh with Logan Lucky. Less than a year later, we’ve received another variation on the formula called Ocean’s 8. This time out, the story is based around a heist perpetrated by an exclusively female crew. While that might have seemed like enough to justify yet another take on this story, like any sequel after sequel after sequel, it can’t help but seem like a bit of a rehash.

Just paroled from prison, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) is the sister of Danny Ocean from the previous installments. While in the joint, she’s done nothing but...

Hereditary effectively delivers spine-tingling chills

Running Time: 127 minutes

Sometimes it’s best to just avoid advance word on a film. Hereditary has been getting a great deal of festival press and raves, with many suggesting it’s the scariest thing to hit cinema screens in years (of course, all of this really depends on what frightens you on a deep level). So yes, there seems to be a bit of hyperbole developing that no film can possibly live up to. However, this is still an effective and well acted horror picture.

The movie follows the trials of an odd family. Artist/miniature builder Annie (Toni Collette) and her husband Steve (Gabriel Byrne) take their teenaged son Peter (Alex Wolff) and younger...

BIG NEW RELEASES!

Death Wish - This remake of the 1974 vigilante film features Bruce Willis taking on the role originally played by Charles Bronson. After his wife and college age daughter are violently assaulted, the mild-mannered lead decides to take justice into his own hands and victimize those responsible for the crime. Reaction to this effort wasn’t very enthusiastic. A scant few enjoyed it as B-movie exploitation, while the overwhelming...
