    Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers

    ★★★½

    'Chip n' Dale: Rescue Rangers' is a pixilated, hilariously cannibalizing reimagining of the defunct Walt Disney daytime cartoon. Aficionados of the 1990's series might not titter at the adult-oriented humor of Dan Gregor and Doug Mand's effrontery.

    However it is never risque nor scatological; it only suggestively, wittily transposes opium dens of cheese and human trafficking to be in bootleg knockoffs. Beyond the 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit?' ecosystem of hand-drawn characters alongside hominids, each still frame is chock-full of pop…

    George Carlin's American Dream

    ★★★★

    'George Carlin's American Dream' is an all-encompassing, vividly evocative documentary about the prolific, incisive wordsmith who conquered the standup area for five decades. His popularity hasn't surceased after death either; his verbose topicality is remontant.

    Judd Apatow surgically fillets with these portraitures of soliloquizing magnates ('The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling' was a venerating tribute).

    'The Power of the Dog' is a vituperative, ryotwary period drama with a barnstorming exhibition by Benedict Cumberbatch (in the vein of Daniel Plainview animosity). His performance should be garnished with accolades from the autumnal awards brass.

    From the Montana 1925 title card, Jonny Greenwood's fret-plucking, twangy score is like a Johnny Cash ballad. After several years of obscurity, Jane Campion is grandly saltatorial back into the fray. Near the midsection, Campion is obeisant with an homage to "dueling banjos"…

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' is a fustian, excruciating sequel which conjugates buzzwords and hot-button topics like school shootings and cancel culture in a blase attempt at modernization. The party bus pogrom is sickeningly nettling with camera phones and expendable, ignominious victims.

    Sprinting behind the trend of Blumhouse's 'Halloween', survivor Sally Hardesty basically xeroxes Laurie Strode as the Final Girl with an arsenal at her disposal for vigilante justice. Sorry to expostulate Fede Alvarez and his absurdly hebetudinous ilk but Sally isn't…
