Pixar’s fantasy coming-of-age adventure Luca follows Luca Paguro (room‘s Jacob Tremblay) and his friend Alberto Scorfano (Shazam‘s Jack Dylan Grazer), two young sea monsters who take the form of two human children as they explore the idyllic town of Portorosso on the Italian Riviera. From our review,
With Luca, the magic lies in the tiny details that make up the human world. The underwater world is certainly beautiful, but the coastal town of Portorosso really shines. From the eyes of Luca and Alberto, it makes sense that the human environment is so lovingly complemented. All of the little details – the laundry hanging between the streets, the uneven cobblestones, the posters on the walls – create a beautiful rendering of the real world. It’s not photorealistic, but it makes the city a little warmer, a little brighter, and a little more golden, almost like a rosy memory. The stylization strengthens this blissful summer shared by three friends.

The keystone of Legendary Entertainment’s Monster Verse reinterpretation of Toho’s most famous kaiju is finally here in Adam Wingards Godzilla vs. Kong. Who will win in a battle between an ancient, giant radiation-emitting lizard and a great old monkey with a heart of gold and a palm full of sign language? The answer is obvious: we do it! From our review,
Godzilla vs. Kong is a 113-minute argument in favor of films that are projected onto big screens in front of crowds. It’s a smooth headed time. Depending on local advances and restrictions in pandemic recovery, it will either greet moviegoers triumphantly back in theaters with a daunting spectacle, or it will hurt the wait even more as they watch it on HBO Max instead. I watched it on my 55-inch TV at home, absolutely angry that I couldn’t see it in a theater, or at least project it onto the side of my apartment building. But I couldn’t stay angry for long because I was too busy cheering on the spectacle in front of me.

With a cast made up of stars like Nick Cannon (Wild ‘n Out), Tim Roth (pulp Fiction), Rami Jaber and Jamie Chung (Lovecraft land) Brosnan is the obvious star that is all of this movie’s appeal. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a former James Bond one Ocean’s Eleven-Esque heist movie you should consider giving The outsider a shot.
