The Ring 12/15/18
There are some positive things in the film too: acting is quite good, Samara is kinda decent character (is anyone surprised?) and the famous television scene looks fine (but for some reason it's not as creepy as the original).
Sandy Wexler 12/15/18
There are definite elements of characters like Danny Rose and even Jerry Maguire here, but they just don't work because those characters, though involved in comic situations, were created in a realistic vein, which can't be said for Sandy Wexler at all.
The film is worth watching for Woody Allen's look at America in the year 2173, which utilizes some stunning art direction and outrageous set pieces that scene after scene, defy imagination but fit this crazy story like a glove.
I don't mind violence in movies (quite the contrary, I'd say) but still I'm not thrilled by films like this that have nothing else.
A Star Is Born 12/14/18

Night School 12/13/18
Hart evokes sympathy for Teddy by beginning the film with a flashback that shows why Teddy never graduated high school, but shows him being ridiculed by his father and sister for being dumb.
Staying Alive 12/13/18
We have scene after scene of Broadway dancers going through grueling dance routines set to disco tunes by the Bee Gees and Stallone's brother, Frank, who Stallone does try to showcase here.
