Genre: Comedy drama
Duration: 1h 30m
Director: Dean Fleischer Camp
Form: Jenny Slate, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Mann

This is a feature film adaptation of the beloved YouTube series that follows a little shell wearing shoes (voiced by Jenny Slate) getting philosophical from a small worldview.

From our review:

Casually saying profound things in a charmingly direct way is kind of Marcel’s thing. Marcel the shell with shoes on gets a remarkable mileage out of Neville making simple, odd observations about the people and things around him. Considering that the original Marcel videos were less than 12 minutes in total, it’s a testament to the script’s strengths that the feature film version of his schtick never gets old. (The film is also relatively thin, at 89 minutes in length, but still.) The dramatic arc of this magic-realistic comedy is gentle: Dean’s YouTube videos about Neville bring them viral fame, which excites and terrifies them both. The jokes are also soft and lovable.

New on Shake

Spoonful of Sugar

Form: Morgan Saylor, Kat Foster, Myko Olivier

When Millicent learns more about the child’s family’s dark secrets and develops an unhealthy attraction to the boy’s father (Myko Olivier), she begins to take matters into her own hands to make sure she’s never separated again. of the family. – ever. Given the appearance of the trailer, Spoonful of Sugar seems like the kind of horror movie that ends up somewhere in between Orphan, Saint Maud, And A remedy for well-being.

New on VOD

Genre: Comedy drama
Duration: 1h 52m
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Form: Channing Tatum, Salma Hayek, Ayub Khan Din

One of the sexiest movie franchises comes to an end with this final installment of the Magic Mike trilogy. Steven Soderbergh returns to the director’s chair for this one, in which Channing Tatum’s Mike becomes a “kept man” for a very wealthy Salma Hayek.

From our review:

Altogether, Magic Mike’s Last Dance has the feel of a stage musical, complete with great emotions expressed through songs – or a half-naked interpretive dance in the fake rain, as the case may be. It’s a lustful, ambitious fairytale, with lofty screenplays, lavish wardrobe choices and a London where working-class Adonis organizes impromptu flash mobs in double-decker buses. (This scene momentarily turns the film into a jazzy antics a la the italian job, (but intent on seducing an uptight bureaucrat, rather than stealing $4 million in gold.) But when both love and money complicate the original pleasure of watching gyrating muscular men in sweatpants, it dilutes the once-simple pleasures of the movie. Maybe you can not have it all.
