Movie Reviews

Dan Webster and Nathan Weinbender give short movie reviews.

At 87, Clint Eastwood is still one of Hollywood's most active and unpredictable film makers, and his latest is the strange experiment in realism called The 15:17 to Paris. Nathan Weinbender takes a look at the film, which casts the real people involved in a 2015 terrorist attack and asks them to reenact it, but it's (unfortunately) not nearly as fascinating as it sounds.

If you're familiar with "National Lampoon" magazine, "Animal House" and "Caddyshack," you can blame Doug Kenney. The new Netflix biopic A Futile & Stupid Gesture, casts Will Forte as the legendary - and legendarily troubled - comedy writer, and while it's a noble attempt to upend the structure, Nathan Weinbender says the movie's title is sadly appropriate.
