The Breakdown of 'Deadpool 2', 'Book Club', 'The Kissing Booth', 'Sometimes' and Remembering Margot Kidder


It is Victoria Day here in Canada and that means everyone gets a day off work if they know someone named Victoria or someone who has the letter 'a' in their name. Of course, the best thing to do on a holiday Monday is listen to movie reviews, so as always, The Movie Breakdown has your holiday needs covered. This week we have one of the biggest movies of the summer and a hotly anticipated sequel to one of the highest grossing R/18A rated movies of all-time in Deadpool 2. We also have another comedic movie geared towards adults but one with far less dismembering and no Ryan Reynolds in the still star-studded Book Club. We also have two Netflix Originals this week in the teenage romantic comedy that stars Joey King (and has a supporting role from 1980s teenage comedy queen Molly Ringwald) in The Kissing Booth and an Indian drama about HIV with a 12 Angry Men vibe in Sometimes. After all the movie reviews, we pay tribute to a major star from many 1980s childhoods and the gold standard for all cinematic Lois Lanes in Margot Kidder. If you love the show then please help us out by spreading the word to other movie fans or going over to iTunes to give us a five star review.

Reminder that you can now subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes.



We apologize but there won't be any outline for The Movie Breakdowndue to the crazy mystery that the media player runs different times and so the timestamps have no value. If you know how to solve this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

Question of the Week: Solo: A Star Wars Story soars into cinemas next week and is a prequel tale of an iconic movie character, Han Solo. What other movie character from an older movie would make for a great origin or prequel movie?

Bad Fevers are Bad

Apologies for the relaunching of the blog turning out to be a lot like right before we launched the Facebook page and gave promises of an army of new articles and reviews. Luckily, Scott has been holding the team together for articles on the Facebook page, but that hasn't meant much here on the actual site where I am the sole writer. But as is the inevitable when having young kids and especially with one who occasionally withdraws from the bank of viruses that is elementary school, I caught me one of those new-fangled fevers to play around with in-between looking after kids and getting client work done. Since all those things take time and even more time when all you want to do is fall into unconscious, my other main activity was sleeping. Because when your body is melting and a marching band is riding elephants in your head and dinner refuses to stay put, there is really only one thing you covet, which is snuggling up in bed with a box of Kleenexes snuggled beside you and a bucket nearby. So, I did that.

Now, it is just sniffles, an occasional cough, and an irritated throat (it took the Once Upon a Time cancellation news real hard). Now, I'm catching up on all the things that got shoved to the "not a exploding priority" list while I was running on fumes, and the thing that got relegated to that list the most these past two weeks was writing articles on this site. As I catch up on everything, I hope that I can get the site back in working order in the coming days.

The Breakdown of 'Life of the Party', 'Anon', 'Manhunt', and 'The Rachel Divide'


I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day and made sure to show some love to the wonderful woman that brought you into this world. But it is now Monday, so that means time for movie discussion on The Movie Breakdown. We've got four movie reviews for you this week, including the big new theatrical release in the latest Melissa McCarthy comedy, Life of the Party. From there we review three new Netflix Originals with the big one being Andrew Niccol's latest sci-fi thriller in Anon. John Woo is also back with his latest action film in Manhunt. We also have a documentary on the controversial Rachel Dolezal in The Rachel Divide. As well, we discuss if filmmakers and studios have a responsibility for positive and progressive depictions of gender and race in their movies. As always we hope you love the show and if you do, please help us out by spreading the word to other movie fans or giving us a five star review on iTunes.

The Breakdown of 'The Week Of', 'Kodachrome', and 'Candy Jar'


Avengers: Infinity War has scared away the competition from the theatres, so The Movie Breakdown thought it was a perfect week to stay home and review three Netflix originals. The big one is the latest Adam Sandler comedy about a working class dad trying to find ways to afford his daughter's wedding in The Week Of. Then we have a star-studded road trip picture with big names Jason Sudeikis, Elizabeth Olsen and Ed Harris in Kodachrome. We also have a high school romantic comedy about two teens that are forced to work together on their debate team in Candy Jar. From there, we look at the Academy expelling Roman Polanski from membership and discuss if the Academy has a moral obligation and if we should allow the evil deeds of the artist to affect their art. In other news, Avengers: Infinity War broke the record for highest domestic opening weekend and so, we discuss what other movie studios can learn from its success. It is a packed show, and we really appreciate you checking it out. If you love the show then please help us out by spreading the word to other huge movie fans/

UPDATED 2018 Catch-Up: One Sentence Reviews and Star Ratings of Every 2018 Release I've Reviewed This Year


The title is straight-forward so there is your article description. I am not ranking these movies but will order them by their release date.

Insidious: The Last Key **½: It is awesome seeing 74 year old Lin Shaye as the kick-ass lead, but the story suffers from feeling a little well-worn.

Open House ½*: If misplacing your cereal bowl is the scariest thing that has ever happened to you then this is the horror you've been waiting to see.

Paddington 2 ***½: A joyful, kind-hearted and energetic family movie about acceptance and friendship that has one of the most adorable and likable leads in years.

The Commuter **½: A ridiculous but fun thriller that wears out its welcome by hitting some absurd but predictable beats in the finale.

The Polka King **: Jack Black and Jenny Slate craft unique performance in a very generic and dull biopic masquerading as a comedy.

12 Strong ***: A well-made standard brothers in arms picture elevated by well-choreographed action sequences and a commanding lead performance by Chris Hemsworth.

Step Sisters **½: Great dance sequences with some charming moments stuffed into a formulaic comedy about relationships.

Blockbuster **: Much like myself in high school, movie mistakes "complete idiots" for "charming."

Maze Runner: The Death Cure **½: No mazes were run through during this movie.

Den of Thieves **½: The Heat but way more Gerard Butler and far less people using showers.

A Futile and Stupid Gesture **: Good job movie, you made Will Forte unlikable.

On Body and Soul ***: A sweet and touching romance about broken people who connect through their dreams.

Seeing Allred **½: Gloria Allred is a fascinating figure, but the documentary suffers from a lack of focus, but the subject is enough to keep it interesting.

Winchester *½: Helen Mirren is in a horror movie as an eccentric woman in a creepy house then does nothing interesting and is given a role any older actress could play.

The Cloverfield Paradox *: The insane plot twists like the magically appearing women in the wall and the sentient hand are not enough to overcome the horribly predictable and generic sci-fi thriller.

The 15:17 to Paris *: The guys who stopped the terrorist attack on the train to Paris are definite heroes but they also are definitely not actors.

When We First Met **: This movie bravely ignores the rule that your leads in a romantic comedy should be the least bit likable. 

Irreplaceable You *: It is Love Story except the entire story is designed to make you hate the lead who has terminal cancer rather than feeling sympathy for a witty and kind woman with terminal cancer.

Love Per Square Foot **½: The movie is colourful and full of energy but is undone by a meandering plot and eye-rolling plot turns. 

Black Panther ***½: Ryan Coogler proves to be one of the most exciting directors around and does a big movie event that has one of the best Marvel villains, has incredible emotional moments, thrilling big action sequences, and war rhinos!

Early Man ***: The most cheerful and delightful cavemen playing soccer movie ever.

The Ritual **: This is the movie for the person who always wished The Blair Witch Project had mid-life crisis men as the lead characters and a duller story.

Annihilation ***: Alex Garland proves again that he is a master of thoughtful and chilling sci-fi that questions things like what makes us human and our role in nature and this time we also get a captivating performance from Natalie Portman; I need to re-watch this as I think it will get an uptick in the star rating.

Game Night ***½: It is wondrous to see Rachel McAdams back in a comedy and she has a terrific chemistry with Jason Bateman in a really fun, action comedy that earns its heart and has several memorable gags, plus a stand-out supporting roles from Jesse Plemons.

Mute *½: The terrific Duncan Jones has unfortunately delivered his second straight great looking jumbled mess.

Fullmetal Alchemist **: This movie was made for someone who was not me.

Forgotten **½: A decent, atmospheric, moody thriller that unravels with a way too convoluted twist ending.

Steel Rain ***: An old school race against time to stop the nuclear threat movie that would have been considered a big event movie in the 1970s and 1980s, another proof that Korea has some fine filmmakers.

Red Sparrow ***½: Jennifer Lawrence nails it in her most challenging and gruelling performance as a former ballet star turned Russian spy in a movie that is tough to watch and very dark, but delivers adult storytelling that is rare in modern mainstream movies.

A Wrinkle in Time ***: Ava DuVernay proves she is capable of doing imaginative, big budget spectacle with this sweet, ambitious, creative movie that may be disjointed and messy at times but is always sincere and audacious.

Gringo **: The biggest noteworthy thing about this movie is Sharlto Copley's performances is almost something you'd call normal and fine.

The Strangers: Prey at Night *: Has everything you remember from a 1980s slasher with an 80s soundtrack, awful dialogue, stupid characters and bloody kills, but doing a decent purposeful recreation of bad movies doesn't make the movie any better.

The Outsider *½: The movie thinks it is about a Yakuza turf war but is actually about how Jared Leto rises in power because he is white.

Tomb Raider **: Alicia Vikander sure is great at running and hanging over CGI pits.

Love, Simon ***½: A coming of age and coming out high school comedy that would make John Hughes proud.

Game Over, Man! *: I can't believe there was a time that I wanted to see Adam DeVine in movies.

Benji **½: The dog is adorable, and who doesn't love dogs?

Roxanne, Roxanne ***: A well-made biopic about an interesting rap pioneer that has a great lead performance and some great musical sequences.

Pacific Rim Uprising **: The good news is the sequel trades for John Boyega as the new lead but unfortunately, we lose director Guillermo del Toro for filmmaking that is far more pedestrian big budget action.

Take Your Pills **: Another documentary with interesting subject matter but suffers from a lack of focus and never really sticking to a decipherable message.

Ready Player One ***½: It is a gorgeous and action-packed homage to 1980s pop culture and proof that Steven Spielberg still has the magic to make enthralling big movie events.

Happy Anniversary **: A fluffy, forgettable sitcom pilot stretched out to be a feature.

First Match ***½: A heartbreaking character-driven story about a teen using wrestling to earn the affection of her estranged father that is a break-out movie for the lead and filmmaker.

The Titan *: A reminder why I never get excited about a Sam Worthington starring movie.

A Quite Place ****: A great horror movie has always been about way more than the scares or the monster, but rather about the bond of family, how we move past grief, and provide window into some of the fears of modern society, and this movie is even so much more than all of those things.

Blockers ***½: A progressive movie because it simply allows female teenager to go on a virginity ending journey like the boys have done in sex comedies for 40 years, but also some great comedic performance from Leslie Mann, John Cena and Ike Barinholtz, but also must mention a star in the making performance by Geraldine Viswanathan.

6 Balloons **½: There has been a lot of great dramas about drug addiction, and while Dave Franco and Abbi Jacobson are fantastic as siblings, the movie sticks a little too strong with formula and never fully fleshes out motivations.

The 4th Company **½: Another movie that has great atmosphere and interesting ideas, but has a tendency of reminding one of much better movies.

Orbiter 9 **: Watch Moon instead.

Amateur **: The drama about a 14 year basketball prodigy has a fascinating first hour, but then message starts to clunk and the final 30 minutes is a slap in the face for daring to invest time in this movie.

Truth or Dare *: As much as we are in a mainstream horror renaissance, there is always going to be lazy and unscary apparent horrors trying to appeal to the teenage crowd.

Come Sunday **½: Chiwetel Ejiofor is fantastic as a preacher who starts questioning parts of his faith, but unfortunately, the script isn't quite up to his level.

I Feel Party **½: Amy Schumer is hilarious and charming and elevates a movie that has a sledgehammer message and very messy plotting.

Kodachrome **½: Fantastic performances from Jason Sudeikis, Elizabeth Olsen, and Ed Harris help out what is a very predictable and formulaic estranged family members go on a road trip picture.

Avengers: Infinity War ***½: The Russo brothers pulled off the big grand epic adventure we were salivating to see and created one of the most intriguing villains in the Marvel universe in Thanos.

The Week Of *½: Rich, successful Adam Sandler does his take on a working class dad trying to figure out ways to afford his daughter's upcoming wedding while Chris Rock acts like he'd rather be in any other movie including Pootie Tang.

Candy Jar **: The movie about two high school rivals needing to team up for a debate competition is a peppy and energetic reminder of much better past high school movies.

Revised: May 7 after originally posted May 1




















Aghast! Help Me, Pro Podcast Techie, You're My Only Hope!

I was going over last week's The Movie Breakdown episode and noticed once again the times that I have in the outline are off. So, I started fixing the time stamps for each segment. But then I discovered something, every time I hit refresh on the page and started listening to a segment again, the time stamp changes. It either started a bit earlier or a tad later than the time that I had just typed on the page. I am either the most incompetent time stamper ever or there is something wonky with the Internet Archive player. I haven't checked to see if the time stamps are consistent with my Window's media player and the iTunes player yet. Now, I've asked this is in the past but it is really driving me nuts, because I'd like to create an outline that is actually useable and accurate. Does anyone know why the timing for the player changes every single time? Up until now, I did not know seconds and minutes were a subjective thing that is determined by how a piece of software feels at the moment. I think I may need to start letting it have cookies after dinner now.

The Positive Preview of May 2018 Theatrical Releases


May has traditionally been the month that kicks off the summer movies season that has all the big studios releasing their big movie events. But Avengers: Infinity War came a week early and went on to break the record for highest domestic opening weekend. Despite that major event, the movie studios have not decided to cancel May and are going to keep on releasing movies. May looks to be an interesting one with a pretty diverse slate that has the big franchise movies, some comedies, a few thrillers and even some smaller geared towards adults pictures. Now, not all of them are going to be good and some may even be awful, but since they are sight unseen at this point, I have decided to give all the new releases the benefit of the doubt. I am going to list all the major releases of May 2018 along with a positive comment about each movies' potential. 

May 4

Bad Samaritan (Electric Entertainment): This reminds me of the very chilling thriller Don't Breathe where this time we once again see an unsavory type break into a home where the owner is even more dangerous and hideous. Except this time, rather than it being one night the lead looks to be stuck in a cat and mouse game that spans days or weeks while also trying to solve a mystery of the missing girl. I like thrillers where the lead starts out not being so reputable but needs to rise and become a better person while also not dying, this looks like it could be fun and creepy time.

Overboard (Pantelion): Watching the trailer of this gender-swapping remake of the Goldie Hawn and Kirk Russell starring 1987 comedy, my mind started to drift to thinking about another movie, Keanu that had Anna Faris in a brilliant and hilarious cameo as herself. Faris can be really funny when in movies with good scripts. I think, I may rewatch Keanu this weekend.

Tully (Focus Features): I love previous Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody team ups in Juno and Young Adult, I love the wit and characters and how the places were lived in with those movies. Both Reitman and Cody don't seem to have the acclaim now that they did when they collaborated on those movies, but this looks like a very raw and funny look at modern motherhood and family. Plus Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davis are heaping cups of absolute awesome, so this may be one of the true stand-out movies of the summer (so of course, it isn't released near Brantford this weekend).

May 11

Breaking In (Universal): "I'm just a mom. You have no clue what I'm capable of." Simply put, it is Gabrielle Union kicking bad guy butt to save her kids. I have a huge soft spot for b-movie-ish thrillers where an average person is forced to rise up against baddies and this trailer looks like a blast. Plus Gabrielle Union being back on the big screen is always a great thing.

Life of the Party (Warner Brothers - New Line): I still find Melissa McCarthy hilarious and she is one of the very best at physical comedy right now. There are little hints here that she may not be playing the same character she has done a billion times and playing someone who is a bit more sophisticated and smarter. Plus it has great actresses like Gillian Jacobs and Maya Rudolph in supporting roles. I am also glad they showed restraint and didn't just market this as a Back to School remake.

Revenge (warning the link is to a very graphic trailer) (Neon): It looks like the type of bloody, dark, violent revenge tale that would have had midnight screenings across North America in the 1970s, and so it shouldn't be surprising this was a huge hit at the genre film festival Fantastic Fest. It now stands at 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is a subversive and gory tale about female empowerment where the seemingly ditzy girl finds out her boyfriend is a jerk when he and his buddies try to kills her, so now she is going to make them pay, This is clearly a not for everyone movie but looks to be a hit for fans of violent and dark horror-ish thrillers.

May 15

Book Club (Paramount): It is great that talented women like Candice Bergen, Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, and Mary Steenburgen have landed a big studio movie. Plus you now know where you can take your mom out this weekend.

Deadpool 2 (Fox): I'm not one for hyperbole but this will be the greatest movie ever created. No big deal. I loved the original, which was irreverent, hilarious, action-packed, but also really sweet. Ryan Reynolds finally got the role that he is perfect to play and I kind of wish they would make a million of these, if only because we keep on getting a great marketing campaign every time. Reynolds has stated there may not be a third one, so expect some really big stuff to go down to pay off stories and likely set-up the X-Force franchise. Plus it is the comic book movie that gives the long-awaited debut of Peter.

Show Dogs (Global Road): It is 90 minutes long.

First Reformed (A24): I always love when an actor goes against type, so I am really intrigued to see Cedric the Entertainer in a very dramatic role. The story of a former military chaplain (Ethan Hawke) who is recovering from the death of his son is then faced with information about a potential attack by a radical environmentalist group is one that sounds like it could go down typical thriller routes but the trailer shows a deep and reflective movie that is more focused on the characters and their internal struggles. Always great to see Amanda Seyfried as well. This looks like it could be worth tracking down after getting your fill from the bigger studio fare.

May 25

Solo: A Star Wars Story (Buena Vista - Lucasfilm): We have all heard about the behind the scenes drama and everyone can admit we didn't need a Han Solo origin story, but come on, it is Star Wars and we are all going to see it. The visual look fantastic and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian is genius. Plus Ron Howard will never stop being the filmmaker who gave us stuff like Rush, Cinderella Man, Apollo 13 (space!), Parenthood, Cocoon, Splash, and Willow (no, I haven't watched it since 1988, why?).

How to Talk to Girls at Parties (A24): The movie is a mix of coming of age tale set in 1977 punk era London, a fish out of water story, a love story about star-crossed lovers, and of course, an alien invasion adventure. There is a little bit for everyone. Plus it is based on a great short story by the terrific writer Neil Gaiman and has what looks to be a stand-out performance from the also very good Elle Fanning
