Max Abrams Reviews: Studio 54

Now on Netflix: Studio 54 3.5 Stars By Max Abrams   I had a lot of friends growing up. I do not mean that as a boast. Quite the opposite. I am ashamed as I think back to all the days of my youth that I spent with jerks, doing things that I thought I should be doing rather than what I actually enjoy. Contrary to what Mark Zuckerberg thinks, hav...

 Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Now on Demand ***   I am a criminal. I have broken the law more times than I can remember. And not just when I drove 70 mph on I89. When I was in my 20s, I went on a date with a mature-looking 19 year old. At the restaurant, I was able to buy her a martini without any problem. I was breaking the law, right? I know the restaurant certainly was. Arou...

Leaving Neverland

*** “Many people are skeptical about the marriage of Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Pressley. They say that Lisa Marie is more of a sit at home type, while Michael Jackson is more a homosexual pedophile.”   -Norm MacDonald, on Saturday Night Live 1994   “The family that accused Michael Jackson of molesting their child are just in it for the money.”...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Oscar Winner for Best Animated Film                              *** There was a media backlash against “Bohemian Rhapsody” for winning the Golden Globe for Best Drama and “Green Book” for winning the Oscar for Best Picture.           Backlash is an understatement. It was more like a coordinated firestorm of internet fury. If you google Bohemian Rh...

Now on Demand: Support the Girls

*** I remember this lovely young woman I used to work with many years ago. Her name was Danielle. One time we were talking about a movie preview we had both seen. She stated that the star was James Franco. I corrected her and said it was Hayden Christensen. She smiled at me and didn’t say a word. Months later we were in New York City together, walk...

They Shall Not Grow Old Now Playing at the Savoy Theater

What is the biggest threat to our national security? What is the one existential threat to all mammalian life on this planet? It’s nuclear war. Of course it’s nuclear war. It has been for 70 straight years. When the Eastern Hemisphere is a pile of ashes and radioactive clouds are slowly drifting over to snuff out the Americas, it won’t matter wheth...

A Sea of Plastic: **1/2

Now on Netflix I don’t think like a mainstream environmentalist. I view humanity’s responsibility to the planet very much like my responsibility to the apartment complex where I live. My cats scratch the carpet, they vomit on the carpet, and they even rub their butts across it sometimes. I do not feel like I’m a bad tenant. Stuff happens. I do not...

Nominated for Best Picture

Vice:***1/2 I have an easy question for you: Who is the worst living Republican president? Your gut instinct is telling some of you to say Trump. I am a pacifist, though, so the decision is easy for me. President Trump recently decided to pull all US troops out of Syria, infuriating the Republican establishment. You remember the troops in Syria, ri...

Now Available on Netflix and Nominated for Best Picture

Roma: ***1/2 It’s pretty ridiculous when I hear someone being accused of being racist against Mexicans. There is no conceivable way to be racist against Mexicans. Mexican is a nationality, not a race. Racism against Mexicans is as absurd as racism against Americans. This conversation underscores the awkward fact that Americans know virtually nothin...
