The Help (2011)

I just caught up with The Help, after it earned $169 million at the American box office, and scored four Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. It's also the thirteenth highest grossing movie of the year, and the #1 movie of the year that's not a sequel, prequel, remake or franchise of some kind. Here are some quick thoughts. read more...

The Blind Side (2009)

In 2002, screenwriter John Lee Hancock (A Perfect World, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) directed a G-rated baseball movie, produced at Disney and based on a true story: The Rookie. It sounded like a pile of guck, and I nearly skipped it, but it turned out to be a very graceful, emotionally vivid film that eventually became my all-time favorite baseball movie. read more...

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)

Last year, Morgan Neville's documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? — about children's television host Mr. Rogers — was a most talked-about item, not only because of its power to make just about everyone cry, but also because it sparked a discussion about kindness. Why is kindness so rare today? Why is it so hard to be kind? Now comes the fiction feature film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and you might ask why we needed another version. There are several reasons. One is that this movie tells a different story, with Rogers as something of a supporting character. Another is that Tom Hanks was born to play the role. And, thirdly, best of all, we could all use another dose of kindness. read more...

Hoosiers (1986)

More than any other sports movie, Hoosiers milks the "David vs. Goliath" thing nearly to death and still gets away with it. Barely a single frame of this movie is less than compelling. Perhaps that's because of Gene Hackman's brilliant performance as the blacklisted coach who takes the only job he can get -- on a flyspeck team in the middle of cornpatch, Indiana. Director David Anspaugh keeps the basketball scenes exciting and gets creditable performances out of Barbara Hershey and Dennis Hopper in supporting roles. read more...
