Max is a nice if not forgettable family flick, featuring good performances from the cast including Josh Wiggins, Thomas Haden Church and relative newcomer Mia Xitali. It’s nothing extraordinary and has a bit of the cheese factor in some scenes yet, and in spite of the thematic elements, is well worth watching especially for families as it does highlight an important part of the military.
Tales from the Crypt Presents Demon Knights is a fun horror-comedy with some good performances, though none better than Billy Zane who chews the scenery like no other and has a good old time playing the outlandish villain. The movie itself is quite entertaining and features some impressive make-up effects and even the VFX, for its time, isn’t all that bad.
I think Easy A is such a gem mainly because it has numerous references to 1980s John Hughes films and does so without copying it and instead paying homage in a fun and entertaining way. Emma Stone is well deserving of the award nomination accolades she’s received thus far and I only hope the Oscars will gives her props as well.
