Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, Daddio, MaXXXine

Movie 1: Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

It was good to see Eddie Murphy in his iconic role as Axel Foley. This is the fourth installment in the franchise and once again he hits the streets of Beverly Hills along with much of the original cast and soundtrack. Not great film making, just a lot of fun. Unfortunately not in theatres, only on Netflix.


Movie 2: Daddio

It’s not easy making a good drama with just two cast members, but Daddio more than succeeds. Filmed entirely inside a taxi, Sean Penn and Dakota Johnson enjoy excellent banter and great chemistry. This is a very adult film with realistic scenarios. Well worth seeking out.


Movie 3: MaXXXine

This is the third movie in a trilogy by Ti West and Mia Goth (X and Pearl in 2022). A porn star wants to become a legitimate actress in horror films. A simple enough plot yet very confusing and disappointing. And somehow murder, drugs and the LA Night Stalker of the mid 80’s are all involved. The only character of interest was actress Elizabeth Debicki who played Princess Diana in the Netflix series The Crown.

  1. Hard to imagine Eddie Murphy in another Beverly Hills Cop movie. Must have been a truckload of money threw at him. I’m certain if they threw enough money at him he’d endorse Trump.
