Ben Schwartz returns to reprise his role as the lovable super-fast hedgehog in the top-grossing sequel to 2020’s Sonic the Hedgehog. When the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) returns to conquer the Earth alongside a mysterious new ally named Knuckles (Idris Elba), Sonic will have to join forces with his buddy Tails the two-tailed fox (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) in order to save the day.

Our review:

Perhaps some of it is meant to be an homage like Sonic’s voice (voiced and recorded by Ben Schwartz), calling the movie. Snow Dogs “the woooooorst” in the frequently GIF’d sing-song cadence of Schwartz’s Parks and Recreation character, Jean-Ralphio Sanderson. The experience of watching is defined by the shameless, frantic grab for cultural knicknacks Sonic the Hedgehog II. This sequel is technically Continue reading fun and more engaging than its predecessor — while placing its strongest emphasis on the more part. Robotnik’s concern about dying a derivative death makes sense — Carrey’s scenes are the only moments where the SonicMovies begin to feel as if they could create a unique comic voice.

Ambulance

This is one of the best films of 2022, so far. AmbulanceAfter a decade of making Transformers films, Michael Bay is back in form with this movie. Yahya Abul-Mateen II and Jake Gyllenhaal star as brothers bank robbers who drive a hijacked Ambulance (plus some remarkable breakthroughs in the use of drones to film action).

Our review:

AmbulanceIt belongs to an exclusive breed of action films that have been expelled from theaters in the past two decades due to the phenomenal, digital franchise blockbuster. It’s a one-shot idea that sets off a practical spectacle of car crashes, gun battles, stunts, and sweaty acting, orchestrated by a deranged ringmaster of a director who will stop at nothing to get the shot he has in mind. It’s stupid, exciting, unruly (with a 136-minute run time), and strangely refreshing.

Ti West’s first horror movie in nearly a decade is a slasher following a group of young people making a porno in Texas, unbeknownst to the shotgun-toting old man whose cabin they’re using as a set. You can now rent it at a lower price.

Our review:

Funny as can be X gets at times, however, it’s just as effective at providing scares as it is at provoking laughs. After the killings start, West unleashes the gore. His co-editor David Kashevaroff uses novel, effective editing to increase the scares or make new ones. There are many ways to make a kill go away, including juxtapositions and screen wipes. X This makes it an unpredictable experience.

Umma

Sandra Oh is the star of 2022’s psychological horror movie Umma as a mother living on a quiet American farm coping with her daughter’s impending departure to college. Her mother’s remains arrive on her doorstep and start a chain reaction that leads to painful and terrifying memories that haunt her.

Our review:

Many notable horror movies have been inspired by the themes Shim is trying to investigate, including this one. Relic, RunningAnd It is a hereditary matter. For comparison: UmmaIt seems that actors are operating under the assumption of safety, which makes them appear uncomfortable but never fearful. Oh, as a leading horror actor, is particularly static. Rather than letting loose with frustration or fear, committing to Amanda’s inner monster, or varying her performance in any way, she looks continuously dismayed, conveying all the soul-shaking terror of someone dreading a long bus ride. Stewart fares a little better, especially when she’s paired with Odeya Rush as a more socialized girl her age. But the movie doesn’t have much imagination when it comes to the effects of her character’s near-total isolation. Chris is basically a perfectly normal girl, without any cell phone.
