GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

Fame isn’t always as great it seems; or at least that’s what “Goodbye Christopher Robin” appears to suggest. A biopic about how author A.A. Milne and son Christopher Robin Milne’s quality time together inspired the “Winnie-the-Pooh” book series, which later went on to...

DINA

Amusingly, when Dina, the film’s eponymous main subject, shares with loved ones her obsession with the Kardashians, one can’t help but notice the similarities between reality shows and “Dina,” a documentary that chronicles the pending nuptials of Philadelphia local...

SNATCHED

Hollywood continues its mission to exploit every possible national holiday for the sake of a big box-office payday with “Snatched,” a comedy about a mother and daughter who get kidnapped while on vacation in South America and then antics ensue. After trying last year...
