The other is to make the unnamed child an African-American kid. Referred to as “Hero Boy” in the credits, he’s played by the charismatic child actor Jahzir Bruno and voiced, in his older incarnation, by Chris Rock. Taken in by his kindly grandmother (Octavia Spencer) after his parents perish in a car accident, the youngster has an encounter with a strange woman at the local grocer. Grandma is deservedly worried; she once saw her best friend get turned into a chicken. Witches prey on the poor, the overlooked, the kids no one makes a fuss about, she says. They have to hide out where it’s safe: “a rich white folks’ hotel,” because no one will think to look for them there. So Grandma, Hero Boy and his new pet mouse, Daisy, check in. How were they to know that this is the same place that the International Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, a.k.a. the Southern-belle coven run by the Norwegian Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway) herself, … [Read more...] about ‘The Witches’ Review: A D.O.A.

An extension of his 2017 short, writer-director Jacob Chase’s feature debut lives in the no man’s land between Grimm fairy tales and modern technophobia; its single best (and blessedly not overused) recurring shot is Larry’s POV perspective from behind a phone’s glass front. You’d have to go back to the first few seasons of Black Mirror to find this much paranoia over our collective reliance on so many screens, which peaks once Sarah — who, like most folks, is skeptical that Larry is real, until she very much isn’t — starts throwing the household’s flat-screen TV’s, tablets, laptops, etc., out of the household. The payoff behind that sequence, with a front-yard graveyard of trashed smart-tech springing back to life and foretelling something wicked this way is coming, almost makes up for how familiar the rest of the film seems. … [Read more...] about ‘Come Play’ Review: Where the Wild Things Scar
His House — Remi Weekes’ directorial debut, now streaming on Netflix — starts as one type of film and very quickly reveals itself to be something else. Because when the “horror” kicks off, it’s in the context of all of this: the home they’ve been given, the allowance, and, most pressingly, relief from the violence of Sudan. Because all of it comes with strings attached. Bol and Rial can live here, but they can’t live — not really. They can’t break any rules, or work or fend for themselves, or make their own living arrangements. “No pets, no guests, no friends, no parties…” It’s a litany of Don’ts, Can’ts, Not Alloweds. It’s not easy to blend in when you seem to be the only immigrant couple on the block, so foreign in these environs that even the local black residents poke fun at your accent (with more viciousness, it’s worth noting, than most of the white residents). This is our … [Read more...] about ‘His House’ Review: A Haunting, Out of the Past
Performances Ishaan Khatter gets to showcase both his 'tashan' and 'emotion', and the young lad has a ball of a time as Blackie. His hold on the 'Bambaiyya lingo' is quite impressive. He dances like a dream and when his fists talk, you are all ears for that as well. His tranformation bole toh...alag hi-level ka! … [Read more...] about Khaali Peeli Movie Review: Ishaan Khatter Drives Straight Into Your Heart With His Tashan & Emotion
