What a Doll

This went up on Friday but I didn't get the chance to link to it until now -- click on over to The Film Experience for my review of the new Child's Play film, which is both more interesting than it needed to be and perhaps not as much at the same time. There are a lot of ideas that it floats and bounces around before slitting their throat, anyway -- I had fun and I also left it a little disappointed. Nowhere more than its waste of Bryan Tyree Henry, who can do so much (god he's terrific in Widows) but here is given so little. Oh well. Him and Aubrey Plaza got paid, I can't find fault with that.

Disappointing to hear BTH is underused in this, as I actually am somewhat interested in seeing this remake. I just binged Atlanta for the first time earlier in the year and he (along with the rest of the main cast) really are fantastic.

Also, I've said this before, but I'm putting it out there again: How is Aubrey Plaza now considered old enough to be playing mom roles? Let alone the mom of a 13 year-old.

Matty -- they make a joke in the film about Aubrey's age so they obviously knew we were all thinking it!
