Every year, a few films get lost in the hustle and bustle of the Oscars. Joachim Trier’s romance film “The Worst Person in the World” picked up only two nominations at the 94th Academy Awards, but is worth seeing for its honest portrayal of complicated love.
In the new comedy “Licorice Pizza” Alana Haim stars alongside Cooper Hoffman in a treacherous 1970s San Fernando Valley love story. The fast-paced film fuses silly with the serious, as an entrepreneurial teen and insecure adult wonder if romance can ever be possible.
“He’s All That,” a remake of the 1990s classic, “She’s All That,” premiered Aug. 25, on Netflix, starring TikTok sensation Addison Rae. The film fails to live up to the original and its performances and production make it a bad movie.
Daylight Supreme’s directorial debut, “Chicago: America’s Hidden War,” kicked off with an in-person premiere in Los Angeles May 6. The documentary reveals the truth behind the daily violence that affects an entire community but should affect an entire nation.
Film awards season is here and one of the most talked-about films is “Nomadland,” directed by Chloé Zhao. Academy Award winner Frances McDormand plays Fern, a woman who loses her house and her family and decides to start a journey to the western United States, living as a modern nomad in her van.
John Carney’s “Sing Street,” portrays the life of a high school boy living in 1980s Dublin, Ireland, when he decides to form a band to impress a girl, and he ends up falling in love with both the girl and the music. “Sing Street” is a modern-day example of perfect storytelling, where heart and music collide.
