Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Visual Dictionary

The Visual Dictionary for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker brings impressive details and lore to the latest film in the galaxy far, far away but is it worth picking up? Check out my review to find out!

Dolittle

Robert Downey Jr. stars as one of literature’s most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle. After losing his wife (Kasia Smutniak) seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company.  But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures. The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice, Tommy Stubbins (Harry Collett) and a band of his animal friends, including a fearful gorilla, Chee-Chee (Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck,Dab-Dab (Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich, Plimpton (Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear, Yoshi (John Cena) and a headstrong parrot, Poly (Emma Thompson), who also serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.  The film also stars Antonio Banderas as King Rassouli, Michael Sheen as Dr. Blair Müdfly, and voice performances from Tom Holland, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, Jason Mantzoukas and Craig Robinson.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Even with a solid McConaughey performance, Gold loses its luster

Gold is a great premise for a film, with fine performances all around. However, the movie plods along without the energy or urgency it needed. It’s worth watching once to...
