"Barely gets out of the starting gate."

Jay Seaver says... "If one's filmgoing tastes stretch far enough for Indian action-adventure and "Race 3" is playing at the local multiplex - and it's more likely than usual; the big Eid release is getting more screens than Bollywood films typically get in the U.S., including some in 3D - the number in the title should not deter you; it's not connected to the two previous movies and even the returning actors are playing different characters. No, give it a pass because it's not very good, a prime example of how a movie can have a little bit of everything and not enough of anything." (more)
"Maybe Not Incredible, But Pretty Good."

Peter Sobczynski says... "When “The Incredibles” was release in 2004 to near-universal acclaim, superhero films had not quite begun to totally dominate the film industry in the way that they do today and as a result, writer-director Brad Bird’s keenly felt homage to the genre felt fresh, exciting and funny while at the same time offering surprisingly nuanced takes on such subjects as balancing work and family and the pains and pleasures of being special and unique in a world that oftentimes simply finds it easier to embrace mediocrity instead. The result was both one of Pixar’s finest films and one worthy of belonging placed alongside “Superman: The Movie” (1978), “Hulk” (2003), “Spider-Man 2” (2004,” the Christopher Nolan “Batman” films and the current “Black Panther” as one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. Now, “Incredibles 2” has finally arrived and the good news is that it is fast, funny, often visually stunning and should prove to be entertaining enough for young and old viewers alike, even those who were not even born when the original came out 14 years ago. The bad news is that while it is never less than entertaining to watch and certainly preferable to the likes of “Avengers: Infinity War” or “Deadpool 2” as superhero movies go, it lacks the additional grace notes that made the original so much more than just another action-packed extravaganza."

"Genuine dumb fun."

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2018: An enjoyably crude comedy about two people whose simple-if-ill-advised plan for a weekend at the beach is detailed by a bunch of disasters both of their own and others' making, "Never Goin' Back" is a bit of a standout right now because they don't necessarily make a lot of these movies about teenage girls. And while it's noteworthy for being unusual now, it will probably age well because it's genuinely funny throughout." (more)

Peter Sobczynski says... "When people watch Nicolas Cage movies these days—I assume that there are still some hardy souls inclined to do so—they are doing so in the hopes of finding either the increasingly rare diamond in the rough that reminds them of the brilliant and ingenious actor that he used to be (as was the case with films like “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,” “Joe” or his singular turn in “Mom and Dad”) or, as is more often the case, those moments of batshit insanity that may not land on a Lifetime Achievement clip reel but will definitely find a home on countless YouTube compilations. Alas, even those faithful will have little patience with his latest effort (his fourth to be released so far this year), the dreadfully dull action thriller “211.”" (more)
