Kodachrome

Before making Kodachrome, filmmaker Mark Raso directed Copenhagen and screenwriter Jonathan Tropper wrote This Is Where I Leave You.  Both of those were modest movies with family drama and pleasant dynamics.  Kodachrome is more of the same from these two men, which is good for Netflix audiences looking for an easy watch, but slightly disappointing for movie goers expecting more than unchallenging schmaltz.

Super Troopers 2

After 17 years, the sporadically-anticipated sequel to the 2001’s Super Troopers has pulled into cinemas.  Written and starring the Broken Lizard comedy troupe (Jay Chandrasekhar, Paul Soter, Steve Lemme, Erik Stolhanske, Kevin Heffernan) and directed by their very own Chandrasekhar, Super Troopers 2 is what you would expect from a sequel of a cult classic.

I Feel Pretty

By: Jessica Goddard Blandly written and clunkily delivered, I Feel Pretty has its moments but is mediocre to the point of vexation.  A sort of cross between Shallow Hal and 13 Going on 30, the premise is probably well-intentioned as far as messaging is concerned, but it’s almost like this movie gives up on itself midway through.  Indeed, it’s getting hard out here for those of us rooting for Amy Schumer’s film career.

Spaceman

By: Nick van Dinther With a real-life figure like Bill “Spaceman” Lee, there is more than enough material to make an interesting biopic.  Unfortunately, the creators of Spaceman decided to leave a lot of that material on the table.

Indian Horse

Indian Horse is ingrained with prejudice experienced by Canada’s Indigenous people.  Director Stephen S. Campanelli, who is usually hired as a camera operator on mainstream films, gives his audience a firsthand perspective of this chilling history while adapting Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel of the same name.

Borg vs. McEnroe

Björn Borg, a mannered enigma, and John McEnroe, a hot head with a brash reputation, developed a public rivalry with each other based on their differences in athletic gameplay and sportsmanship.  However, if you’re looking for a explanatory grasp on their relationship, you won’t find it in Borg vs. McEnroe.  The film itself is adequate by biopic and sport movie standards – merely on its surface – but its focus is more targeted on individual arcs.
