“Encanto” is a good film. And therein lies the problem — Disney films are supposed to be great films, classics that are excitedly handed town to the next generation.
Broadway fans will enjoy this Lin-Manuel Miranda directed musical based on the life of Rentcreator and composter Jonathan Larson.
Ouija Japan (2021) is unrated and given the lack of hard violence, I would give it a PG-13 for people getting shot, stabbed, bludgeoned, insulted, and run over. The blood is minimal and the worst of it is CGI.
Lair (2021) is unrated but we’ll call it an R for people getting slashed, gutted, and dropping from 5th floor windows. That’s it, that’s the movie.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) is rated PG-13 for swears, off-color humor, underaged driving, a few ghosts, and some dad humor.
Will Smith is at his best as Richard Williams, the misunderstood father of Serena and Venus Williams, in the motivational tale of how Williams helped raise two of the best women tennis players of all-time. A guy who lived much of his life with the lens focused on his girls now has it turned to him which only makes sense as he told his girls’ coach in 1991 that they would one day make a movie about him titled King Richard.
Eternals (2021) is rated PG-13 for swears, soul-sucking Deviants, CGI decapitations, people getting stabbed, people getting thrown around, people getting speared, mind control, Bollywood dancing, and sexy-times befitting a PG-13 movie.
The French Dispatch (2021) is Rated R for swears, people dying, nudity, people getting slashed, people getting gassed, people getting shot, laundry-room sexy-times, people getting electrocuted, people getting poisoned, and lots of smoking. Don’t worry though, it’s really a light-hearted film.
Antlers (2021) is rated R for swears, people getting mauled, people getting gored, creatures losing their human faces, emaciated children, attacking children, skunkicide, half-eaten corpses, animal corpses, and naked men holding stuffed animals (as unnecessary a scene as there ever was).
The Harder They Fall (2021) is rated R for swears, lots of people getting shot, explosions, people getting cut, people getting the snot beat out of them, and lots of dust,
Last Night in Soho is Rated R for swears, smoking (like a lot of smoking), people getting drugged, people getting slashed, people getting stabbed, people getting run over by cars, sexytimes, brief nudity, and the blind-range inducing misogyny of the 1960s.
Dune (2021) is rated PG-13 for bloody images, people fighting with swords, shot with darts, and slashed with knives, as well as people eaten by sandworms, blown up, and beheaded.
