This week on the Large Morning Show in the Afternoon, I review a pair of new films as well as dish on a couple television shows worth checking out.
Before I broke into new releases, Frank had a review on “John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum,” which he saw with his wife last week. While he hated the first film, Frank liked “Chapter 3,” although he warned of his violence, calling it the most violent film he’s seen in recent memory.
I had lukewarm words for the new “Men in Black” sequel. “International” pairs Avengers buddies Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, but the two actors lack the spark found in their previous endeavors. The film isn’t funny and is rather forgettable. A stale jar of cookies.
“American Woman,” featuring a never-better Sienna Miller, is much better. The drama paints a fresh coat on the missing child genre, showing lapses of time after Debra’s (Miller) daughter goes missing. The film puts an emphasis on the effect of the loss on the parent instead of merely investigating the crime.
A few quick words about the new Netflix show, “The Chef Show,” which pairs Jon Favreau with his teacher/friend, Chef Roy Choi, who trained the actor for the 2014 gem, “Chef.”
Season 3 of “Jessica Jones” also debuted last week, and it’s the same middling result as Season 2.
