The Beatles: Ei...
Perfect 66 Points 2016

Beatlemania boggles because of the Beatles and the mania around them, especially from ‘62 to ’66 when they exploded on the world and toured to rabid crowds of hormonal girls. Ron Howard’s fun and insightful doc about those halcyon days doesn’t stint on John, Paul, George & Ringo, or the mania…

Really Great 66 Points 2012

Charlie is My Darling is the dangerous younger brother to A Hard Day’s Night. Beatles ‘64. Stones ‘65.

Mercy, Mercy was more than a Rolling Stones song in 1965. It was what they wanted from their ravenous fans, a besotted mob of hormonally charged teens. Beatlemania had nothing on the…

Really Great 66 Points 2018

Searingly honest and comically revealing, Springsteen on Broadway is the Boss at his evocative best, notwithstanding some unintentional irony. This final performance of his 2018 one-man show (basically a live autobiography) hits the solar plexus with emotion and keen insight, more so than even …

Great 83 Points 2015

Art imitates reality in Straight Outta Compton. Actually it amplifies, glamorizes and ultimately twists reality. The art is Gangsta Rap, the reality African-American ghetto life, the artistic twists many.

Twists aside, the movie is a semi-accurate chronicle of an important pop-culture movem…

Yesterday
Great 66 Points 2019

In Theaters Now

Yesterday is the best high-concept movie in recent memory. What if the entire world never knew of the Beatles? No Hey Jude, no Sgt. Peppers, no Revolution, no Fab Four. John, Paul, George & Ringo, just lads.

Except one guy never forgot, a failed singer-songwriter who only needed one gr…

Jersey Boys
Very Good 66 Points 2014

This long movie is no longer than the smash stage show it brings to the Silver Screen. It just feels like it. Clint Eastwood apparently couldn’t come up with a way to transform the show for the screen, with middling results. I can’t think of a way either, but that doesn’t change the underwhelm…

Begin Again
Very Good 83 Points 2013

Begin Again is a low-key treat for grownups in need of a quality Date Night Movie. More a music romance than a people romance, music lovers and especially musicians will find in it a true bonus: Great Music!

Mark Ruffalo & Keira Knightly are terrific separately and have great chemistry toge…

Frank
Very Good 66 Points 2014

Tragically hip alt-rock crosses over into madness in the under-titled Frank, about a charismatic band leader and his devoted bandmates. Here’s the thing: Frank wears a large fake head, all the time.

Starting in Britain, Frank’s band brings on a guileless recruit before decamping for Ireland,…

A Star is Born
Very Good 83 Points 2018

Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga got themselves the best Star is Born of the past half-century. Think about it, Cooper & Gaga beat Kristofferson and Streisand all to hell, he the better actor, she the better rock singer.

Nevermind that Cooper’s major moviestar turn as a rootsy rockstar with a ragi…

I'm Not There
OK 66 Points 2007

Faux Dylan for extreme Dylanologists, I’m Not The-Her-Here-There revels in tragic hipness. Unapologetic and willfully – aggressively – nostalgic, it rambles through distorted fields of Dylanology. Non fanatics should steer clear.

While the characters and storyline are takeoffs from the rea…
