Ezra, Bad Boys: Ride or Die, The Commandant’s Shadow

Movie 1: Ezra

This is an endearing and tenderly made film. A standup comic gets a call to appear on the Jimmy Kimball show but must travel by car from New Jersey to LA with his special needs son. The acting and cast are terrific all round and always good to see Whoopi Goldberg in a movie. Currently in theatres but will soon be on Netflix.


Movie 2: Bad Boys: Ride or Die

This is the fourth installment of the action-comedy franchise and first movie for Will Smith since his infamous incident with Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars. It’s OK, some funny moments, but not as entertaining as the previous movies. Martin Lawrence and Will Smith do have good chemistry together and this film made over $100 million worldwide in its first weekend.


Movie 3: The Commandant’s Shadow

This is a compelling Holocaust documentary. The son and grandson of Rudolf Hoss, the infamous commandant and mastermind behind the murder of more than a million Jews at Auschwitz, come to the London home of a 98 year old camp survivor. It truly is amazing that these people could actually meet each other. It raises all sorts of questions about guilt, acceptance and hope. Currently in theatres but will stream on Max later this year.

  1. Look forward to seeing Ezra.
    I’m still mad at Will so probably won’t watch that one.
    And will see the documentary.

  2. Ezra sounds intriguing. The Holocaust movie seems like an accident on the freeway. I don’t want to see it but I don’t dare look away.
