Turning Red   (2022)

Rating: PG

Release Date: Premiering on the Disney+ platform on Friday, March 11, 2022.

Summary: Turning Red is about Mei Lee (voiced by Rosalie Chiang), a 13-year-old who has her best friends always at her side, and unfortunately, her overbearing mother, Ming (voiced by Sandra Oh), watching her every move. It’s bad enough to be a teenager, but suddenly, Mei Lee is turning into a giant Red Panda every time she gets excited. What’s a girl to do?

What to Watch For: This is Sandra Oh’s fourth appearance in a Disney film. Her last appearance was in the 2021 animated film Raya and the Last Dragon, where she voiced the character Virana.

Word on the Street: The film is the first feature film directed by Domee Shi, who won an Oscar for her short Pixar film Bao in 2019.

My Take: I love Pixar films and can’t wait to see this one.

What to Watch For: This is from the same team that brought you the 2021 film Free Guy.

Word on the Street: The outstanding supporting cast includes Zoe Saldana, Catherine Keener, Jennifer Garner, and Alex Mallari Jr.

All My Friends Hate Me   (2021)

Rating: R

Release Date: In select theatres on Friday, March 11, 2022.

Summary: All My Friends Hate Me tells the story of Pete (Tom Stourton), who reluctantly goes on a birthday weekend trip with his old college crew. Soon, Pete notices that his friends are slowly turning against him. Is he being punished, paranoid, or is this some sort of sick revenge for something he did in the past?

What to Watch For: The film is co-written by Tom Stourton, who stars as Pete. Stourton is best known for voicing the character Duncan in the TV series Thomas & Friends.

Word on the Street: The film was a hit at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival.

My Take: I love Georgina Campbell, who plays one of Pete’s ‘friends’ in the film. Campbell has been a favorite of mine since she played D.C. Katie Harford in the TV series Broadchurch.
