Scott ‘Movie’ Mantz raves about this week’s movie reviews for ‘Thirteen Lives’, ‘Vengeance’ and ‘Not Okay’


The reviews are in and Scott ‘Movie’ Mantz can’t say enough good things about the latest movies, ‘Thirteen Lives’, ‘Not Okay’ and ‘Vengeance’.

“Thirteen Lives” was made into a feature length documentary “The Rescue.” Ron Howard directed this feature film based on the true story of the worldwide effort to try to rescue a football team of 12 children and a coach stuck in a flooded cave in Thailand. Mantz describes the film as captivating, fascinating and inspiring, a must-see in theaters to fully enjoy the experience.

BJ Novak wrote and made his directorial debut with “Vengeance” and “it’s one of the best movies of the year,” Mantz said. The star-studded film features Issa Rae, Ashton Kutcher, Dove Cameron and BJ Novak himself. This dark comedy mystery thriller has plenty of twists and surprises about a journalist/podcaster who discovers the death of a woman he had a relationship with and he thinks he can make a story out of it. “It’s an instant classic,” Mantz said.

Zoey Deutch plays a single woman in Hulu’s latest film “Not Okay” and “Zoey Deutch in particular is fantastic,” Mantz said. She uses social media to create an identity for herself as a survivor of a terrorist attack in Paris and eventually becomes famous, but her fame comes at a price. “This movie is provocative and has something to say,” Scott said, “Disagree is better than okay.”

“Thirteen Lives” is in select theaters now and on Prime Video August 5. ‘Not Okay’ airs on Hulu today and ‘Vengeance’ is exclusively in theaters now

This segment aired on the KTLA 5 Morning News on July 29, 2021.
