Robert De Niro is excellent at acting distant, unlikable characters—hard men who might come off as a little boring when you first meet them, but who have fascinating inner lives that they rarely let anyone in on. In Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” which feels like a sum of a rich subset of De Niro’s long career, De Niro played yet another of those roles at the age of 75.
There is just one purpose for time travel, according to science fiction author David Brin: “Make it didn’t happen.” It’s impossible to resist the fantasy that one error can be fixed, no, prevented. And whether it’s about ensuring your own parents fall in love so that you and your siblings will be born, or saving the future mother of the only hero who can lead a rebellion against Skynet, the movies have given us some of our best stories of rescue operations via going through time. The director and star of “Free Guy” from the last year have made a popcorn-friendly film with “The Adam Project.”
After the similarly comic book-inspired Project Power, Jamie Foxx’s second major Netflix picture, Day Shift, features him as a down-on-his-luck vampire hunter. A light-hearted tribute to Michael Bay’s glory, at least when it’s not explicitly evoking the early Netflix tentpole In the opening scene of a movie like Bright — Day Shift, a senior vampire spits black slime on the hero. Nobody in this situation is being overly serious.
At the very least, Kevin Hart deserves credit for his creative nature in maintaining the middle-brow, upper-middle-budget studio comedy on his own terms. Following the torturous “The Man From Toronto,” Hart stars in “Me Time,” another Netflix bromance comedy, opposite Mark Wahlberg. Imagine it as a grown man’s “Risky Business,” in which a decent Mr. Mom-type receives an unsupervised week at home after working as a stay-at-home dad for a long period to support his career-driven wife.
Action comedy Red Notice is a movie that Rawson Marshall Thurber wrote and directed. Before Netflix purchased the distribution rights, Universal Pictures had planned to release the movie in theatres. After a brief, one-week theatrical release, it was made accessible on Netflix on November 12, 2021. With difficulty, FBI Special Agent John Hartley and renowned international art thief Nolan Booth must work together. They need to work together to apprehend famed thief Sarah Black, who has stolen a jeweled egg from the Antonius and Cleopatra period.
