GIFTED (2017): New Trailer From Chris Evans, Jenny Slate, Octavia Spencer…

At the heart of  Gifted, the latest movie starring Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer and Jenny Slate is a custody battle over a child prodigy played by Mckenna Grace…

I’m intrigued by this one, though certainly not as much as I would be had the trailer not been a mere whisker from being a short film. Actually, scrap that. This is a ‘short film’, a.k.a.,  a lazy **s, far too long 2:34 minutes that substitutes a genuinely interesting and creative tease for a ‘show everything but the credits’ sad excuse for a trailer.

There. Now that my true feelings are out, should you want to see the much longer version, you can – in approximately six months from now. I may, I may not.

Gifted Release Dates: April 12th, 2017 (US); April 16th, 2017 (UK)…

MY BLIND BROTHER (2016): The Thing I Liked…?

My Blind Brother is a movie about the relationship between two brothers (one of whom is blind) and how their lives are further complicated when a girl comes into the picture.

Starring Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate, Adam Scott and Zoe Kazan, I found My Blind Brother generally quite dull. It felt like a lesser version of a good movie about the relationship between two brothers (one of whom is blind) and how their lives are further complicated when a girl comes into the picture.

As you can imagine, sibling rivalry comes into play in this story but the general element of dull just reminded me that I’m unfortunately completely over watching Nick Kroll play ‘loser’ characters. Adult Beginners (2014) was quite enough in that regard, thank you. Looking on the bright side as one must, I did find Adam Scott mildly entertaining as the entitled blind brother. But that’s it.
