PIG (Michael Sarnoski) Score 65%

PIG (Michael Sarnoski)

The movie is Rob and Amir’s quest to find our porcine scene-stealer, but it is also a comment on the ruthlessness of the restaurant business and, without being antithetical, the sensuality of food.

“King Richard” fits Will Smith like a glove but it’s Aunjanue Ellis as wife Brandy who walks away with the acting honors. Score 70%

“King Richard” fits Will Smith like a glove but it’s Aunjanue Ellis as wife Brandy who walks away with the acting honors.

The role is a bit of a cliche, but Ellis invests it with such power, love, and grace that you never doubt her character.  And she has a few wonderful heart-to-heart moments with Smith. Slowly but surely, she walks away with the acting honors. But kudos must also be given to Jon Bernthal who plays the sisters second (Tony Goldwyn plays their first) professional coach, Florida-based Rick Macci.

This also leads to some very funny situations – the film is always buoyant and life-affirming even at it’s bleakest moments.

The Green Knight (David Lowery)

Dev Patel is Gawain, not quite yet a sir, the nephew of King Arthur (Sean Harris) and Queen Guinevere (Kate Dickie) and the son of Morgan Le Fay (Sarita Choudhury), who practices witchcraft.
