Review: Director Josh Cooley's "Toy Story 4"
It's futile to ask "why more" in the movie business, but it's hard not to go in a little suspicious of a fourth "Toy Story." The trilogy was so perfect. What more could we ask of Woody and Buzz? What more did we as an audience need? If we got another, would it live up to the unbridled joy and...

Review: Director Tim Story's "Shaft"
The latest "Shaft ," which adds a new generation of bad mother------- to the mix, is not what you might expect. It's not gritty or raw or even attempting to be all that cool. Instead it maintains intoxicatingly upbeat sitcom-style energy, with gentrification jokes, generational jabs (mostly at the...

Review: Director F. Gary Gray's "Men in Black: International"
Would any fictional gadget be more coveted by Hollywood executives than the memory-erasing "Men in Black" neuralyzer? Imagine the lucrative benefits of being able to, with a single flash, make moviegoers forget the film they just saw. Franchises would be endlessly renewable. IP could last forever...

Review: Director Joe Talbot's "The Last Black Man in San Francisco"
"The Last Black Man in San Francisco " is deeply, even spiritually, connected to its home city, but Joe Talbot's film resides in such a dreamy, plaintive register that it feels like a broader lament for the displaced. It's an unrequited love story for an out-of-reach America. Jimmie Fails (the...

Review: Director Chris Renaud's "The Secret Life of Pets 2"
If the sweet, animated 2016 film "The Secret Life of Pets" was mostly for kids, its new sequel might be for another segment of the audience altogether — whoever is buying the tickets. Amid the cute critter shenanigans, this one has plenty of lessons for the parents. Most of the same gang is back...

Review: Director Michael Dougherty's "Godzilla: King of the Monsters"
It's been a bit since moviegoers had the chance to catch up with Godzilla, five years in fact, which in cinematic franchise time feels like at least a few decades. In other words, it's understandable if you go into "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" a little rusty on just what went down in Tokyo and...

Words To Inspire Those Who Aspire
Getting your foot in the door, then opening the door and crossing the threshold are figuratively speaking the first steps to embarking on a career. As for how to best accomplish this--or at least make the process a little easier--for the aspiring producer or director, SHOOT sought advice from...

Review: Director Olivia Wilde's "Booksmart"
The insanely winning "Booksmart" boasts too many breakthroughs to count. There are the two leads, Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein, both of whom we've seen before but not like this. There is the director, Olivia Wilde, whose debut behind the camera is remarkably assured. And then there is the...

Review: Director Dexter Fletcher's "Rocketman"
Whatever you say about Dexter Fletcher's glossy, glittering Elton John blinged-out biopic "Rocketman ," a shiny sequin of a movie, it doesn't lack for sparkle. Like its flamboyant subject, it's a movie outfitted to the nines in dazzle and verve, even if it's gotten all dressed up with nowhere to go...

Review: Director Joanna Hogg's "The Souvenir"
It was only weeks before production was starting on "The Souvenir," the story goes, and British director Joanna Hogg and her friend, actress Tilda Swinton, still didn't have a lead actress. The role of Julie, an affluent, twentysomething film student in 1980s London, was loosely based on Hogg...
