All the old knives

Espionage thriller, Amazon Prime

Chris Pine’s icy blue eyes and Thandiwe Newton’s cool disturbing gaze are a match made in the conspiracy sky in this labyrinthine story, which connects the two as CIA agents and former lovers who are forced to reconnect when he is assigned to watch a controversial case they both worked on. Love and betrayal are the currencies of this contemporary drama, which exploits the main characters’ careful chemistry.

Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe

Animated comedy, Paramount +

Beavis: “he, he, he.” Butt-head: “Uh-he-he.” It gives me great pleasure to say that during the 26 years ago Beavis and Butt-Head make America, these teenage fears have not changed one iota. They are still brilliant idiots, and with creator Mike Judge back from his comedy series Silicon Valley, the duo is soon in a Bill & Ted-like adventure involving alternate dimensions. Fan note: Yes, Beavis’ alter ego, Cornholio, shows up.

Bubbles

Comedy, Netflix

As Judd Apatow comedies go, this is no Beat up or Train wreck, but this covid-era comedy about a Hollywood franchise production that takes place in a chaotic lockdown, has such a nice and unexpected ensemble cast – Karen Gillan, David Duchovny, Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Pedro Pascal and Peter Serafinowicz plus some cruel cameos – that it is not so difficult to find enjoyable scenes as everything goes off the stack. Alternative opinion: this is secretly what all big budget cuts actually are.

Cha Cha Real Smooth

Romantic comedy, Apple TV +

Dakota Johnson continues the pivoting away from the fake junk to Fifty shades franchise with a fantastic performance, in turn hopeful and overwhelmed, in this independent film that Apple took from the Sundance Film Festival. Writer-director Cooper Raiff plays a driving college graduate who forges a bond with an engaged woman (Johnson) and her autistic daughter. The film’s pedigree goes back through Garden State to The graduating studentbut it has a welcome mix of eccentricity and empathy.

Dozens cheaper

Family Comedy, Disney +

Speaking of which Garden State, the film’s creator and star, Zach Braff, has now graduated to play Dad in the third edition of this ode to oversized families, and took the reins from Steve Martin in the 2003 version. It is a pleasant, heartfelt comedy about the difficulties of getting work and family to fit together when you have 12 children running around the house. If you have 12 children, you can fact check this movie. Otherwise enjoy yourself.

Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers

Animated comedy, Disney +

This is a strange, wonderful mix of children’s TV from the 1990s, meta-comments and the comic talents of Andy Samberg and John Mulaney. In a mix of animated and live-action appearances, the couple gives voice to an adult and alienated Chip and Dale, ground squirrels who were TV stars in the 1990s and originally created by Disney in 1943. A kidnapping plot leaves them hanging with all sorts characters in a weird comedy that owes a lot Who framed Roger Rabbit? Maximum idiosyncrasy.

Gold

Dystopian thriller, Stan *

Shot in the scorching depths of the Australian outback, but set in an indefinite place and future, this concise survival story is freed from irrelevant details: names, backstories and very quick hopes. Zac Efron’s carved leading male appearance is blistered and mistreated as a passing worker who, along with a low-key driver (director Anthony Hayes), finds a large gold deposit. When he chooses to stay and guard it while assistance is being obtained, circumstances turn out of control.

The gray man

Action, Netflix (July 22)

This is an action movie so impressive that it is supposed to launch Netflix’s version of the 007 series, but despite Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo are said to have spent $ 290 million, and the trailer’s best special effect is “trash ‘stache” which was played by former Captain America Chris Evans. He is a CIA sociopath hunting for a former colleague, a master killer played by Ryan Gosling. With the help of Ana de Armas, who actually starred in the latest Bond film, they make a lot of rubble.

mas

Drama, Netflix

Adam Sandler’s Netflix originals have a disorienting selection – Uncut gemstones and The Ridiculous 6 belongs on different planets – but in this sports story he delivers a solid performance as a frustrated basketball scout for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers who are betting their weary careers on an unknown European prospect (former Utah Jazz player Juancho Hernangomez). You do not have to be a hoops fan to follow the famous story, but fans will catch a number of famous cameos.

I want you back

Romantic comedy, Amazon Prime

Charlie Day and Jenny Slate strike sparks in this lousy independent room-com, which gives a hint of Hitchcocks Strangers on the train to a story about two recently dumped singles who not only commit to their shared state, but decide to befriend each other’s exes and sabotage their new relationship. It’s a crazy concept, albeit somewhat unevenly developed, and the ending definitely stays true to the genre.

Jerry and Marge Go Large

Comedy, Paramount +

Directed by David Frankel (The devil walks in Prada) and based on real-life events, this comedy makes the most of Annette Bening and Bryan Cranston, who play retirees who find a loophole in a lottery and use the winnings to revitalize the tired city of Michigan. It’s a cute, albeit small film, complete with some Harvard students as bu-stir opponents.

Naked Tuesday

Lyrics comedy, Stan

Nothing with this sex farce is normal. Set on a fictional island state in the Pacific, it is the story of a couple with a shaky marriage (Damon Herriman and co-creator Jackie van Beek), who seek advice from an eccentric sex therapist (Jemaine Clement). But everyone talks nonsense, which means the subtitles can say anything. The film actually has three sets viewers can choose from, including a version written by comedians Celia Pacquola and Ronny Chieng.

Persuasion

Period Romance, Netflix (July 15)

“It is often said that if you are a fiver in London, you are a 10 in Bath.” I’m pretty sure it’s not a line from Jane Austen’s honorable novel from 1817 about romantic loss and longing, but it’s in this film adaptation that devotees are warned. With Dakota Johnson in the lead role, this is a period drama with modern sides as direct to camera comments. Signs of hope: Richard E. Grant in the supporting cast.

Ladder

Family drama, Disney +

This biography is also presented as an NBA story, but basketball is second only to the family’s love and hopeful battle to tell the story of how the world’s best player, Giannis Antetokounmpo, found his way to success in America as a child of Nigerian refugees struggling to survive in Greece. The parents’ perseverance and the family’s dignity and resilience in the face of discrimination create an uplifting, albeit familiar, arc.

The sky is everywhere

Romance in adulthood, Apple TV +

Josephine Decker is one of the most exciting filmmakers in the American independent scene (see Madelines Madeline and Shirley), so she brings a distinct vision and complicated threads to this growing drama about a teenage musician (Grace Kaufman) who mourns her lost sister and handles romantic choices. This is a young adult novel adaptation that avoids the genre’s tropics.

Spider head

Science-fiction, Netflix

Chris Hemsworth makes a reverse Superman in this experimental research thriller, puts on glasses and sets aside the Thor persona to play a charming amoral scientist who uses prison inmates as guinea pigs for his emotionally charged drugs. Top Gun: MaverickJoseph Kosinski directs, with Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett as subjects who form bonds. Shout out for Hemsworth’s commitment: his vicious nerd has some cute dance steps.

Tender Bar

Drama, Amazon Prime

As a director, George Clooney has tried everything from academics in a World War II drama to post-apocalyptic science fiction, but he finds a comfortable track in this growing 1970s drama about a boy with divorced parents who finds a surrogate father in a uncle (Ben Affleck), who runs a bar on Long Island filled with all kinds of liquor. Based on JR Moehringer’s memoirs, it is a generous film that nails the final beat.

The tragedy of Macbeth

Shakespearean drama, Apple TV +

Joel Coen stepped aside from his brother Ethan – the first separation in their fifty-year partnership – for this reinterpretation of William Shakespeare’s play, and he made the most of it: Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand simmered in the lead roles, and filmed in black and white on soundstages, and a boxy screen ratio. It is a deeply atmospheric vision of the history of both the original text and the cinema, cut by foreign details.

Turns red

Animated comedy, Disney +

One of Pixar’s best films of the last five years went straight to Disney +, where you can enjoy Domee Shi’s fantasy comedy about a 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian student (Rosalie Chiang) who discovers that every time she experiences strong emotions, she turns into a giant red panda. It’s a movie about being who you want to be as a teenager and understanding your cultural lineage, with a little boy band spice on the side.

Windfall

Thriller, Netflix

This gnarled wooden hand for the age of inequality crept quietly into Netflix earlier this year, but it is well worth seeking out. When a technology mogul (Jesse Plemons, fresh from The power of the dog) and his privileged wife (Lily Collins) arrive at their vacation home, they are taken hostage by an angry intruder (Jason Segel) who resents the digital tycoon. Accusations and revelations play out during Charlie McDowell’s film, which builds on a convincing conclusion.
