The Gentlemen

"The Gentlemen" is like "Ocean's 11" in that it has a solid cast of well-bespoked men. But it is a Guy Ritchie movie through in through with snappy dialogue, a plethora of original characters and even a funky hip-hop beat to go with it.

Matthew McConaughey is alright as Mickey Pearson, the high brow weed dealer ready to get out of the business. He actually LOVES his wife, the streetsmart Rosalind (Michelle Dockery) who is the perfect yin to his yang. But it's Charlie Hunnam, Hugh Grant and Colin Farrell who steal the show as Pearson's right-hand man, private eye and community boxing coach. They are classic Ritchie characters who chew up the screen with delicious consistency as they navigate bad guys trying to get in on Pearson's territory with, big surprise, nefarious intentions. Grant is particularly oleaginous as every line is delivered with expert aplomb. But this isn't some high-brow gangster film, it's just a fun to watch gangster film. "The Gentlemen" also stars Jeremy Strong and Henry Golding.

Gayle On Film: 'The High Note'

The High Note First, it's fairly easy to say that "The High Note" hit a high note casting Dakota Johnson and Tracee Ellis Ross (daughter of uber legend Diana Ross) as a personal assistant/wannabe music producer and an over 40 diva who's not quite ready to call it quits on her career. Johnson is Maggie Sherwood — superfan and super-faithful assistant to Grace Davis (Ross). Maggie performs the most menial tasks due to her admiration for Davis. So sincere is that admiration that she's lasted on the job (largely thankless) for several years (that's a long time in personal assistant years in Hollywood). But Grace is doing the same show, the same act when she's touring. Simply put, she's stalled. Record company execs want her to do that same act in a Las Vegas residency. Maggie believes Grace is not past her prime and should expect more for herself, and so she attempts to push Grace with her own musical ideas. What you get is a female-affirming, pleasant film. There is no backstabbing. (No, that's not a spoiler). While there are funny moments and some solid female-to-female dialogue, the conflict was predictable. Even so, the film is a nice way to spend some girl time co-watching via a Zoom meeting. "The High Note" premieres On Demand. View Now
Gayle On Film: 'The Lion King'

Gayle On Film: 'The Lion King'

The Lion King "The Lion King" is the latest Disney animated hit to be turned into a live action-appearing movie. It appears to be live action, but these are photorealistic computer-generated characters. The 1994 version is in color, has humor, and catchy music. The aesthetic is quite different when you actually make the savannah look realistic and have animals singing their way through a quite beautiful African landscape (as this reviewer saw it in 2D IMAX). It requires the acting talents of the cast to convey the emotion much better than realistic-looking lions that haven't been truly anthropomorphized by animators. But that being said, the reworking of the "Hamlet" tale still has the whimsy and heart to make you tap your toes and smile. Maybe not as much as the first one, but certainly enough to make you enjoy it. "The Lion King" features the voice talents of Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa. View Now

Gayle On Film: 'The Grinch'

The Grinch If you're wondering why there's another cartoon out about the Christmas curmudgeon, remember the other Grinch 'toon is only a half hour special. Illumination, who brought us Gru and the Minions, does a pretty decent job in expanding the story. The Grinch, who in this version is a touch kinder to his trusty pooch Max, is given a back story, and Cindy Lu Who has a larger role as a girl who wants something special from Santa — something that comes without ribbons, tags and packages. You know, something that doesn't come from a store. Benedict Cumberbatch does a fine job voicing the green menace. It was sweet and amusing — just what it needed to be. View Now
Gayle On Film: 'The Hummingbird Project'

Gayle On Film: 'The Hummingbird Project'

The Hummingbird Project Although "The Hummingbird Project" plays like a based-on-a-true-story thriller, it's fiction. Albeit, interesting fiction about high-stakes capitalism and high-frequency trading. Jessie Eisenberg gives a satisfyingly watchable performance as Vinnie. Vinnie is the salesman, the hustler of a project developed by his cousin Anton to move stock trading data milliseconds faster than anyone else. This could result in billions in profit. This project involves laying fiber optic cable in a straight line from Kansas to New Jersey. That means attempting to buy land piece by piece from various homeowners and the tech-resistant Amish, running afoul of their old boss (Salma Hayek), and coding problems. And that's just the tip of the iceberg of the mountain of problems they run into (including an actual mountain). Alex Skarsgärd gives a fine performance as a balding tech guy, who appears to need a caregiver more than his own kids. The pair races against time and trouble in an attempt to get the deal done. While the film is a little heavy on the coding issues and a deliberate plot device for Vinnie's story arc, it has the look and performances of a solidly passable thriller. View Now
