Herald-Banner film critic Alice Reese reviews two movies with connections to the 1980s: "Ghostbusters," starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, a remake of the classic 1984 comedy; and "The Infiltrator," starring Bryan Cranston, which is based on a true story of the 1980s Central American drug trade.
Herald-Banner film critic Alice Reese says adults and children will enjoy "The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)," a Disney movie directed by Steven Spielberg. And Alice says "The Legend of Tarzan" is faithful to the original Tarzan story by Edgar Rice Burroughs, unlike the Johnny Weissmuller "Tarzan" movies of the '30s and '40s.
Herald-Banner film critic Alice Reese says "Finding Dory," the follow-up to 2003's "Finding Nemo," is a worthy successor and lives up to the high standard animated-movie maker Pixar. Alice finds "Central Intelligence," a buddy comedy starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart, very funny, but says it deserves an R rating instead of the PG-13 it received.
Herald-Bannerfilm critic Alice Reese reviews two new romance-oriented movies coming out this weekend: "Me Before You," based on the best-selling novel by Jo Jo Moyes and starring "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clark; and "Maggie's Plan," which stars Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore.
Herald-Banner film critic Alice Reese enjoyed "The Nice Guys" and "Love & Friendship," although the two new comedies are at the low-and-high ends of the spectrum. "The Nice Guys" stars Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in a '70s-style "buddy-cop" movie. "Love & Friendship" stars Kate Beckinsale and Choloe Sevigny and is an adaptation of one of Jane Austen's least-known novels, "Lady Susan."
