Life- New Release

It’s set up as a fast paced monster B movie with the budget of an A, but after a good start, the weight of the material simply fizzles out interest beyond repair.

Beauty and the Beast- New Release

At first I was worried that my early enjoyment of the film in progress was based solely off the nostalgia fumes of the original, but I succumbed to this version on its own merits.

Kong: Skull Island- New Release

Hiddleston and Larson have so little do as the leads, especially Hiddleston’s sensitive tough guy really adds nothing story wise.

Before I Fall- New Release

even if director Ry Russo-Young could relive 1,000 days in the editing room she still wouldn’t have gotten it right.

On the Rocks- New Release

“On the Rocks” gave me a literal headache watching it.  It’s not easy to produce an actual physical reaction in me watching films, but congrats cause I immediately swallowed 1000 mg of Ibuprofen once the credits rolled.

Get Out- New Release

Jordan Peele's tonal shifts are perfect, his editing is so acute, and his actors are so finely tuned that “Get Out” fires on all cylinders.  This is bad A' horror flick with someting important to say.

Silence- New Release

At this screening I noticed a handful of people walking out before it was well over.  Most of the time that is an example of a poorly made film, but not always.  Martin Scorsese’s latest, “Silence”, is an example of the latter.

Fences- New Release

Denzel pisses me off sometimes with complete payday schlubs like “The Magnificent Seven”, but Denzel’s acting prowess is in the top 1% of every actor in the world and when he chooses to showcase that, well, you better buy a ticket.
