The Addams Family (1991)
The Addams Family is a ghoulishly demented spook-fest that’s a masterclass in casting, with Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia bringing their A game as Morticia and Gomez. They’re complemented by Carel Struycken as the Addams’ butler Lurch, and Christopher Hart as Thing, the family’s right-hand man who never speaks and always appears to have a free-standing personality of his own.
The original film has its flaws, but if you’re in the mood for some spooky snarky comedy, it’s still a fun watch. Director Barry Sonnenfeld and screenwriters Caroline Thompson and Larry Wilson did a good job of capturing the spirit of the cartoon characters, but it also contains some sexual innuendo and violence that’s more appropriate for older viewers than the younger ones.
The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (1993)
Christina Ricci does a wonderful job in this Lifetime mini-series. She has an aura of quiet mystery that works to her advantage.
In the wake of her trial and acquittal for her father and stepmother’s ax murders, Lizzie has been living a relatively peaceful life. She and her older sister are trying to move on with their lives.
But they’re not immune to the attentions of a few pesky people. Among them is an undercover agent (Cole Hauser) and the man who tried to bleed Lizzie Borden dry of her money, William Almy.
Z: The Beginning of Everything (2017-present)
Based on the novel Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, this period drama follows the life of Zelda Sayre (Christina Ricci) and her relationship with F. Scott Fitzgerald (David Hoflin).
While it’s a bit melodramatic, Z: The Beginning of Everything is a good effort. It unfolds in half-hour chunks and keeps the pace of the story tight, avoiding any unnecessary bloatedness.
The series also features a terrific supporting cast, including David Strathairn as Zelda’s father Judge Anthony Sayre and Jim True-Frost as famed book editor Maxwell Perkins. Lucy Walters is wonderful as poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, snootily looking down her nose at almost everyone she meets.
Based on a real-life court case, Percy follows the battle of an aging Saskatchewan canola farmer against Monsanto. Christopher Walken stars as Percy Schmeiser, a longtime seed saver who doesn’t use Monsanto’s GMO-resistant canola seeds.
As he battles to protect his farm and livelihood, Percy is forced into a public arena and becomes a global symbol of a growing movement against the company. However, he’s also forced to take on the extortion tactics of Monsanto and their attorneys, risking his reputation, finances, and even his family’s future.
Director Clark Johnson and writers Hilary Pryor, Garfield Lindsay Miller, and Luc Montpellier make the best of what’s at hand, but the movie feels a little bit like it’s missing some meat. Christina Ricci’s perky eco-group representative is a notable highlight, but otherwise the film falls short of being anything more than a competently crafted, narratively flimsy small screen production.
The Matrix Resurrections (2020-present)
It’s been two decades since The Matrix galvanized the sci-fi world, but it’s still a major player. Its sequels are divisive, and its ideas about questioning reality have influenced political reactionaries in dangerous ways.
The fourth film in the series, The Matrix Resurrections (2020-present), stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. It also features new actors Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who portrayed Black Manta in Aquaman, and Neil Patrick Harris.
It’s set several years after the end of the Machine War and centers on Neo, who has regained his memories of the original trilogy but remains stuck in a Matrix program. The main antagonist, The Analyst, keeps a close eye on him.
