Last Night In Soho

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fair lady I see in the reflection instead of myself? When Eloise, who has thing for the 60s, is transported into the past through a mirror which is anything but magic — a mind-bending mystery breaks out. Since it's directed by Edgar Wright, there are flashes of brilliance and a top notch soundtrack. But the film meanders around at times, kind of like one does on the club scene after a few libations. Even so, it's a heck of a ride thanks to some solid performances by Anya Taylor Joy, Matt Smith and legend Diana Rigg.

Gayle On Film: 'Late Night'

Gayle On Film: 'Late Night'

Late Night Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is about to be out of a job. She's the only female late night television host, but she hasn't kept up with the times. She has razor sharp wit, but doesn't tweet and she's certainly not interested in folks with YouTube fame for just hanging out with their dogs. The solution she thinks she needs a diversity hire, since all her writers are white males. Enter Molly (Mindy Kaling), the "diversity hire." She's a chemical plant employee who's only real comedy experience is open mic night. Of course, these two are opposites — Newbury's toughness against Kaling's eternal sunshine. But they are delightful to watch trying to get Newbury to get with the times. Thompson is perfect as the stiff Brit, queen of withering looks, doing a deliciously funny and insightful segment called "Katherine Newbury: White Savior," in which she says she can't help being white, but wants to help people of color with "something easy, not systematic" like helping them hail a taxi. Kaling is good and so is her screenplay for the film. She's a 21st century funny girl. Check out "Late Night" for some solid laughs and chuckles. View Now
Gayle On Film: 'IT Chapter Two'

Gayle On Film: 'IT Chapter Two'

IT Chapter Two Here's the basic rundown for people who've been asking. Yes, it's nearly three hours long. In this critic's opinion it was scarier than the first, but not terrifying. And no, you can't take your kids unless you want people to judge you. Now, a little exposition. IT a.k.a. Pennywise the Clown is back in Derry and 27 years later he's up to his same malevolent ways. But the child crew from the first film is all grown up and nearly all have moved away. When they're called home to make a final stand against him, those who've left don't remember. So, Mike (Isaiah Mustafa) has to convince Bill (James McAvoy), Bev (Jessica Chastain), Richie (Bill Hader), Ben (Jay Ryan), Eddie (James Ransone) and Stanley (Andy Bean) to come home. Andy remembers best, but the rest need a little convincing. It doesn't take IT very long to help them remember and fear. Now, one can consider it scarier than the first in that what IT puts our heroes through seems more cruel and gruesome theatrics than in the first. But it's balanced out with humor — specifically Hader and Ransone's verbal assaults and insults. So basically, what you liked about the first movie, you get more of in the second. View Now
Gayle On Film: '1917'

Gayle On Film: '1917'

1917 Opening in wide release this Friday, Sam Mendes' film "1917" is at the top of this critic's list for the sheer vision and realism in a war-torn landscape, from the opening moments and told in one long, continuous shot. While the film is edited, it's so well done that the viewer feels as if they are on the mission with the soldiers in real-time. The soldiers must traverse fields and towns that the Germans once occupied, not empty of their nasty surprises. All the blood, mud, sweat, bullets, and moments of aching solitude and fear permeate every moment — making this one exceptional and nearly flawless piece of filmmaking. View Now
Gayle On Film: 'Soul' 81BAFD

Gayle On Film: 'Soul'

"Soul" For a movie about a jazz musician/music teacher, "Soul," the latest Disney/Pixar film, is not a musical. But like good music, it's filled with feel-good stuff. While most films from this studio work on two levels with lots of humor for kids and a good amount for the grown-ups, this is one of the more grown-up variety, a la "Inside Out." Joe Gardner (Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx) is about to get his BIG break as a musician when he has an unfortunate incident that sends him to the great beyond, or as they call it, "The Before." Joe learns that "Forgetting the trauma of childbirth is the great gift of the universe." But Joe remembers what he's lost, the joys and pain, and soon realizes he's in the wrong place at the wrong time. Joe longs to get back and he does so with the grudging help of a lost soul 22 (Tina Fey) who has no interest in finally becoming human and all that entails — even with the encouragement of some of humanity's leading heavyweights. While a temper prone Abe Lincoln can't get through to 22, it seems that Joe's teaching skills may just be the spark she needs to face her fears. "Soul" is like music or comfort food that is good for the soul. It is like having a beignet, sugar falling on your chest and you don't care because they're playing your kind of jazz. View Now
