REVIEW: By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs

After director and screenwriter M. Night Shyamalan’s superb 2016 movie, “Split,” I’ve been eagerly waiting for “Glass” which is the sequel to “Split” and “Unbreakable.”

Shyamalan has taken a bold, dark and intriguing path with “Glass.” In interviews he refers to the film as a suspense-thriller-meets-comic-book movie.”

Yet, despite its star power of Samuel L. Jackson who is terrific even when he’s not swearing up a storm, and an ever-scowling Bruce Willis, “Glass” has its moments for sure, but overall it pales in comparison to “Split.”

Still, it’s hard to take your eyes off the screen especially when James McAvoy’s myriad personalities take hold. One minute he’s Kevin Wendall Crumb/The Horde, then Jade (a foul-mouthed teenage girl), Orwell (an introverted man), Barry (his original dominant personality), Patricia, Hedwig (a nine-year-old boy) and then Dennis (a perverted man with OCD).

This is some mighty fine acting by McAvoy too. As great as he was in “Split,” he raises the bar even higher here.

Kevin (McAvoy) is at war with all those voices in his head. He kidnapped four cheerleaders and chained them up in a dilapidated warehouse in Philadelphia. The police are combing the area but are having little luck with their leads.

Meanwhile, David Dunn (Willis), who is now known as “The Overseer” is putting his superhuman powers to good use and trying to help those in need. David has a sixth sense that can detect the evil in people when he casually walks by and brushes up against them. David works with his grown son Joseph (Spencer Treat Clark, TV’s “Criminal Minds” and “Animal Kingdom”) and together they track Kevin/The Beast (McAvoy).

David finds Kevin and rescues the scared cheerleaders from the warehouse, but he can’t get away before Kevin unleashes “The Beast.”

When police arrived, they arrest both guys and take them to a mental institution which is run by Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson, TV’s “American Crime Story,” “Bird Box” and “American Horror Story”).

Something doesn’t seem quite right with this woman.

Dr. Staple’s role at the institution is to convince patients who think they have superpowers that they really don’t and basically that they’re just crazy.

But are they really? Or is Dr. Staple pulling a fast one on these patients?

David has bigger concerns. He soon discovers the place is also home to his arch enemy, Elijah Price aka, “Mr. Glass” (Jackson). He’s the genius/mastermind/mass murderer and comic book theorist who has a genetic disease which causes his bones to be brittle. Elijah’s mother Charlayne Woodard, (TV’s “Pose”) has been by her son’s side since day one and really does believe he’s a superhero.

Something tells me she knows a lot more about Elijah and what's up his sleeve. In fact, it’s not long before Kevin and “Mr. Glass” are cooking up a scheme that could have world-wide ramifications.

Universal Pictures and M. Night Shyamalan have kindly asked press not to reveal too many key plot points and twists of “Glass” so that viewers can enjoy the surprise moments too.

So, if this review seems a bit cryptic, that’s why. But, believe me, Shyamalan’s “Glass” is quite good and is strong enough to shatter the box office competition this weekend.

The Equalizer 2 <b> (Dec. 11) </b> Title: The Equalizer 2 (Dec. 11)
Year Released: 2018
Running Time: 121
Production Company: Sony/Columbia
Director: Antoine Fuqua
Review By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs

“THE EQUALIZER 2”

“The Equalizer 2” won’t win any Oscars, but it is hands down one of the most exciting action dramas this year and an equally satisfying follow-up to 2014’s “Equalizer” hit movie. The big reason of course, is because of its lead star, Mr. Denzel Washington.

For all of his accomplishments, Washington never reprised a role until this one.

In “The Equalizer 2,” from director Antoine Fuqua (“The Magnificent 7” remake), Washington plays Robert McCall, a retired CIA Black Ops operative turned Lyft driver in Boston who still dispenses, swift, street justice to anyone who wrongs or harms innocent people. In other words, don’t cross this guy at all.

Robert (Washington) has adapted to his quiet lifestyle. He still misses his wife and fills his time reading and talking with his Lyft passengers.

Along the way this avenging angel can’t help but take care of those who find themselves in some uncomfortable positions. It could be a mother trying to locate her missing daughter. a teenager (an excellent, Ashton Sanders, “Moonlight”) trying to escape the grips of a gang in his drug infested neighborhood or an abused young woman (Tamara Hickey, “Chappaquiddick”) who hooks up with the wrong, rich guys.

However, nothing prepares Robert for the news he gets regarding his former colleague and best friend, Susan Plummer (Melissa Leo, TV’s “I’m Dying Up Here”). Susan has been killed and Robert’s former co-worker, Dave York (“”Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and TV’s “Narcos”) helped orchestrate the murder.

That sets Robert off and in hot pursuit to use every one of his unique skills to methodically kill those responsible for Susan’s death.

The action is incredibly intense this time around and Robert is extremely calculating as he seeks revenge on the bad guys.

But, what I really liked most about “The Equalizer 2” is returning screenwriter Richard Wenk allows the movie to breath and doesn’t simply turn it into a blood splattering actioner.

Don’t get me wrong it’s bloody violent, but the involving story moves at a nice pace as it leads up to the heavy hitting.

Yet, some of the film’s most gripping moments are when Washington is shown merely thinking about his next move and says absolutely nothing.

Washington is such a phenomenal actor and he truly owns this role. I sure would love to see it taken to a new level and have it developed into a Jason Bourne type series. Antoine Fuqua and Washington have already worked on four movies together. “The Equalizer 2” is further proof they make a dynamic duo.
(Highly Recommended).

EDITOR’S NOTE: The digital, Blu-ray and DVD releases of “The Equalizer 2” features the cast and crew dissecting some of the film’s most intense and action-packed moments from rehearsals to production. In the featurette: “Through Antoine’s Lens: The Cast,” Antoine Fuqua and Denzel talk about why the returning cast play such an important part in this sequel’s success and what it was like working alongside the film’s crop of new talent.

Mission Impossible: Fallout <b> (Dec. 4)</b> Title: Mission Impossible: Fallout (Dec. 4)
Year Released: 2018
Running Time: 148
Production Company: Paramount Pictures
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Review By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs

"MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT"

When it comes to action movies, you can always count on Tom Cruise to give you your money’s worth. This guy never phones in a performance.

At 56-years-old, Cruise still delivers supersized entertainment by doing most all his stunts.

“Mission Impossible: Fallout” is 2½ hours of pure exhilaration from start to finish.

And yes, Cruise/Ethan Hunt’s action sequences here are just as jaw-dropping as the ones in “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” and “Ghost Protocol.”

Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie sure knows how to crank up the mayhem. That bathroom fight scene is a real doozy. He even serves it all up with perfect amounts of humor. And with Cruise in control, “Fallout” works to perfection.

We first see Hunt at a safehouse in Belfast. It’s here he receives the details of his mission that involves retrieving three plutonium cores that have been stolen by a terrorist group known as The Apostles which are part of The Syndicate.

Hunt’s adventure takes him to Berlin. He meets up with his IMF crew Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames, “Con Man” ) and Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg, “Ready Player One”).

Complicating matters is Hunt’s old nemesis, Solomon Lane (a terrific Sean Harris, TV’s “Lucifer”).

According to Hunt’s boss, Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin, TV’s “Saturday Night Live”), the former CIA Director now IMF Secretary, Lane has joined forces with an egomaniac terrorist who is hell-bent on destroying the world with a nuclear attack.

That’s not about to happen with Hunt around. When new, CIA Director Erica Sloane (the wonderful Angela Bassett, TV’s “9-1-1”) instructs Special Activities operative August Walker (Henry Cavill, “Justice League”) to shadow Hunt, well, it just raises the stakes even higher especially when August turns out to have ulterior motives.

And this is when “Mission Impossible: Fallout” goes all in with double and triple crosses and stunning twists that will just blow you away.

“Mission Impossible: Fallout” is one of the best action movies I’ve seen this year.

Blindspotting <b>(Nov. 20) </b> Title: Blindspotting (Nov. 20)
Year Released: 2018
Running Time: 95
Production Company: Summit/Lionsgate Films
Director: Carlos Lopez Estrada
Review By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs

"BLINDSPOTTING"

There have been a number of impressive independent films this year. One that will make my Top 20 list for sure, is “Blindspotting” from former music video producer Carlos López Estrada (Goo Goo Dolls and Passion Pit).

This movie simply blew me away with its originality and honesty. It wowed audiences too at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. “Blindspotting” also arrives on the heels of director/rapper Boots Riley’s Oakland-based critical darling, “Sorry to Bother You.”

Not only is “Blindspotting” set in Oakland like “Sorry to Bother You,” but it’s also written by Oaktown natives Daveed Diggs (Tony Award-winning Play “Hamilton”) and newcomer Rafael Casal who got his start on HBO’s “Def Poetry Jam."

The movie boldly, powerfully and uniquely illuminates contemporary hot button issues such as police brutality, race, gentrification and classism.

In “Blindspotting,” Diggs plays a convicted felon named Collin who wants nothing more than to ride out the last three days of his probation without any incidents and so that he can try to patch up things with his old squeeze Val (Janina Gavankar, “White Orchard”).

If Collin were just hanging out in Oakland by himself, that would be relatively easy to do.

However, his ghetto-fabulous best friend Miles, (Casal) who sports a grill and plenty of tattoos, grew up in the same neighborhood as Collin. This guy is a real knuckle-head with a nose for trouble. Even so, Collin enjoys hanging out at Miles’s house which he shares with his girlfriend Ashley (Jasmine Cephas Jones, “Hamilton”) and their young son Sean (Ziggy Baitinger in his debut).

Both guys work as furniture movers, but also share a love of freestyle rapping and spirited duels which help pass the time.

Oakland is a city they both love and have embraced since childhood. But, they can’t stand to see how gentrification is rapidly changing its culture and diversity. Some small, high-tech companies fronted by white millionaire yuppies are moving into Oakland’s impoverished neighborhoods and changing the landscape with cutesy, high priced coffee shops and pressed juice stores.

Even one of the local hamburger joints serves vegan patties unless you specifically ask for meat. There’s a funny scene involving Miles and the burger that he orders there.

However, despite their similar upbringing, Miles and Collin have strikingly different viewpoints about gentrification. Their relationship is severely tested one night after Collin witnesses a white cop (Ethan Embry, TV’s “Grace and Frankie”) gun down a black teen.

The situation haunts Collin because he felt helpless that he couldn’t do anything for fear of getting thrown back in jail. Yet, when he mentions to Miles what happened to him, it doesn’t nearly affect Miles in the same way. That kind of surprises Collin.

There are so many layers to “Blindspotting.” As each scenario unfolds you’re completely drawn in to the film’s forcefulness.

It’s rare to see a “buddy comedy” tackle such broad social commentary and not oversimplify it or understate it.

It’s a balancing act that “Blindspotting” director Carlos López Estrada juggles exceptionally well. The result is an incisive dramedy that is timely and absolutely brilliant.
(Highly Recommended).

Crazy Rich Asians <b> (Nov. 20) </b> Title: Crazy Rich Asians (Nov. 20)
Year Released: 2018
Running Time: 121
Production Company: Warner Bros. Pictures
Director: Jon M. Chu
Review By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs

“CRAZY RICH ASIANS”

A few years ago, when I interviewed director Jon M. Chu for his dance movie, “Step Up 2: The Streets,” I asked the Palo Alto, California native what other types of movies he’d like to make.

He said he wanted to direct a film—either musical or drama--that would spotlight a broad representation of his culture.

Now, nearly 10 years later Chu has done just that with his latest movie, “Crazy Rich Asians,” which is based on Kevin Kwan’s 2013 novel of the same name.

“Crazy Rich Asians” is a Hollywood gamechanger and comes at a perfect time as the industry scrambles to produce more diverse movies.

Yet, “Crazy Rich Asians” shouldn’t be applauded simply because it features a terrific and predominately Asian cast. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a pretty, big deal especially because it’s the first real major Hollywood movie to feature an all-Asian cast since 1993’s “The Joy Luck Club” and 2005’s “Memoirs of a Geisha.”

The real reason you’ll want to see “Crazy Rich Asians” is simply because it’s a remarkable and excellent movie.
It’s a contemporary love story about family, money and classism. The balance of drama and comedy which comes courtesy of comedians Ken Jong (TV’s “Bobs Burgers”) and Awkwa-Fina (“Ocean’s Eight”) works to perfection.

The story centers on Constance Wu (TV’s “Fresh Off the Boat”) and Henry Golding (upcoming, “A Simple Favor”). They play young lovers. Rachel Chu (Wu) is New York University professor raised by a single Chinese working class mother (the delightful Tan Kheng Hua, “The Faith of Anna Waters”). Nick comes from a very rich family. He’s made it a point to keep his family’s wealth under wraps and from Rachel.

But when Nick (Golding) flies Rachel home to Singapore--first class of course--for a friend’s wedding and to visit his mother Eleanor (Michelle Yeoh, TV’s “Star Trek Discovery”), Rachel realizes Nick’s family is more than just comfortable. They’re filthy rich.

Rachel and Eleanor’s first meeting is far from love at first sight. And the more they talk, it appears the less likely Rachel will ever have a shot at being accepted into the family.

She tries mightily, along with the assistance of her fashionista college buddy, Peik Lin (a scene-stealing Awkwafina, “Oceans Eight”).

The Young’s have all sort of wacky family members and friends. When word gets out that the lowly Rachel has Nick completely sprung and will soon be his lovely wife, a few mean girls at the wedding go to great lengths to humiliate Rachel.

But over time, Rachel develops some spine and stands up to Eleanor. However, her actions do come with a price. It sets them on a collision course with the entire family. What’s worse is Rachel and Nick must now choose between love, money and happiness.

Although you can probably guess which one prevails in the end, “Crazy Rich Asians” takes you on a joyful and colorful ride filled with cultural delights of breathtaking views of Singapore and food so mouthwatering you can almost taste it.

I initially though this movie would be a silly slapstick sort of comedy. It’s not. It’s so much more. It’s wonderful and I really loved every minute of it.

TAYE DIGGS TO HOST CCAWARDS By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs:

TAYE DIGGS TO HOST 24TH ANNUAL CRITICS’ CHOICE AWARDS

Acclaimed film, television, and stage star Taye Diggs will host the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced Jan.3. Diggs is currently starring in The CW drama “All American” and was recently seen in the romantic comedy “Set It Up.”

As previously announced, Best Supporting Actress nominee Claire Foy will accept the #SeeHer Award, while Chuck Lorre, creator of such acclaimed TV comedies as “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mom,” “Young Sheldon” and “The Kominsky Method” (which all received Critics’ Choice Award nominations last month), will receive the Critics’ Choice Creative Achievement Award.

The star-studded Critics’ Choice Awards will be broadcast live on The CW Network on Jan. 13 7 p.m. (ET/PT).

“I am truly honored and ridiculously excited to be hosting the 24th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, especially since, as an actor, I recognize what a vital role the critics play in the entertainment industry today,” said Diggs. “We are all looking forward to a big night celebrating the best of the best in TV and film!”

“We are thrilled to have Taye hosting this year’s ceremony,” said BFCA President Joey Berlin. “Taye is a star of both film and television, plus his illustrious stage career makes him especially qualified to lead our show.

In The CW’s new drama “All American,” Taye Diggs plays Billy Baker, the head coach of Beverly High’s football team, who can’t let go of his glory days in the NFL. He recruits Spencer (Daniel Ezra) from South Crenshaw, maybe because he sees himself in Spencer, maybe because he wants to win, or maybe a bit of both.

Diggs recently starred in the romantic comedy “Set It Up” opposite Zoey Deutch and Lucy Liu. He also completed the independent film “River Runs Red,” featuring John Cusack and George Lopez.

He was most recently seen on season four of “Empire” as Angelo Dubois. Diggs starred in three seasons of “Murder in the First,” alongside Kathleen Robertson. For his role in the series, Diggs earned a 2014 NAACP Image Award nomination in the category of “Outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series.”

Earlier this year, Diggs and collaborator Shane Evans released their third children’s book, “I Love You More Than.” This book is a follow up to his first two children’s books, “Chocolate Me” and “Mixed Me!,” through Macmillan Publishers.

An acclaimed stage actor, Diggs was the first African American to star as the title role on Broadway in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” Additional theatre credits include “A Soldier’s Play” (Second Stage Theatre), “Wicked,” “Chicago,” “The Wild Party” (Manhattan Theatre Club), “Rent” and “Carousel.”

Diggs’ film credits include “The Best Man Holiday,” “Baggage Claim,” “Rent,” “Chicago,” “Brown Sugar,” “Equilibrium,” “Basic,” “The Way of the Gun,” “The Best Man,” “Just a Kiss,” “The House on Haunted Hill,” “Go,” “Drum,” “Cake” and “Malibu’s Most Wanted.”

THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS NOMINEES ARE...

I love the selections for “Best Film Drama.”

They include: “Black Panther,” “BlackKklansman,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “A Star Is Born”.

However, I was taken back that Ryan Coogler was snubbed for “Best Director” (“Black Panther”) and Michael B. Jordan didn’t get a nod for “Best Supporting Actor.”

No superhero movie in the history of the Golden Globe Awards has ever been nominated for "Best Drama Picture" so this is a big deal. A big congrats to Marvel/Disney pictures.
