It will be surprising to many that this movie has something for everyone. Unlike most people's expectations, this is not a simple hit job on President Trump. Highly critical of the president, it is also highly critical of President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the way politics is "played" today. For me, it was like hearing myself for the past 40 years. As I have been no fan of either major party and few of the members of either it was great to see a critical eye ...
The Beach Bum
While the film won’t reveal any new revelatory outlooks on life or leave you feeling like you just witnessed a game-changing piece of cinema, ‘The Beach Bum’ is an incredibly enjoyable 95-minute exercise in escapism, love, and the unprecedented pleasures life can bring. It's the film equivalent of holding a beer in one hand and drunkenly throwing up a peace sign with the other, beaming brightly as you take a picture with your closest, drunkest friends for a moment you’ll never remember on a night you’ll never forget.
This is the worst amateur film I've ever saw, the poster looks promising, but hell, for the hell's sake, don't even try to see this film, you'll be disappointed, grandeur!!!
The film would have a good storyline if not for the stupidity of the idiot director along with lowlife stiff actors and, who also, dragged a couple of known & decent actors. It is a very annoying film and a disgrace to include this film to cannes, which i read about it.
To top of it all, this is a comedy film without ...
The biggest "What did the creators use to blackmail the actors to have them appear in this trash?" since _Movie 43_. None of these people are Oscar winners or anything, but there's a lot of famous people given... this...
"_Mad Max_ But There's Robots" is something that's been done multiple times in the past, and I don't know that it's ever been done well. Maybe _Future World_ isn't the absolute **worst** possible example of it ...
The Death of Superman
In DC's mad rush to get the lion's share of their animated films under one umbrella, ore more accurately, into a single timeline, there was always going to be at least a slight re-duplication of efforts. But seeing as this is almost **exactly** the same as the already released _Superman: Doomsday_ movie, I wonder, did _The Death of Superman_ really need to happen? Or if it did, could it have maybe been one part of a bigger story? Or maybe at least have like... happened later? I suppose, that seeing as ...
The Night Comes for Us
_The Night Comes for Us_ features levels of gore not found anywhere else but your most gratuitous horror flicks, so if you can't handle that sort of thing, I suggest you give it a wide berth. If some blood and guts aren't an issue for you though, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? WHY ARE YOU SPENDING VALUABLE TIME READING THIS REVIEW THAT COULD BE SPENT WATCHING _THE NIGHT COMES FOR US_? ...
The way _BlacKkKlansman_ ends, felt in terms of formula almost as if I was supposed to have just seen some unsubtle propaganda, which seemed a very unusual note to go out on. It did sort of make me step back a bit, but it absolutely did not temper my enjoyment of the movie. I was engaged from the word go, and everybody in it is **so good** ...
Oh man. What a let down. I had supremely high hopes going into Us with as much as I enjoyed Get Out and the hype that surrounded Us upon its release. A thrilling trailer only added to my anticipation.
But Us is too much for its own good. It revolves around Adelaide and Gabe Wilson (Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke) and their two children Zora and Jason (Shahadi Wright Joseph and ...
Hell House LLC
There are two ways to look at Hell House LLC. One is from the traditional critical point of view where--as it should be--everything worth criticizing is fair game. In that sense, Hell House LLC is typical found footage fare. The story is actually kind of cool in that a Halloween haunted house production crew take up shop in a supposedly really haunted abandoned hotel. It was interesting to see the crew build their house, and their scare scenes offer an effective creepy setting for the real scares to ...
A dazzling sci-fi epic that holds nothing back in its entirety. Claire denis' vision is an unrelenting masterwork packed to the brim with nerve-shredding fear and and a pulse-punding gravitational pull that sucks in the viewer and never lets go until the very end.
I found this film more of a meditation on what makes humanity's backbone so spontaneous; there are many plot points and elements that seem justified by the notion that humans are ...
Kind of a _The Happening_ meets _A Quiet Place_, but better than the latter and **way** better than the former. Maybe I didn't get eeeeeeverything I wanted out of _Bird Box_ but I'm still on board. I know that I opened this up by saying the movie is very much like two other movies, but what I liked most about is honestly that it's unlike 99.99% of the horror genre, and that little variation was just what I needed today.
When it comes to some of my more beloved action movies, a lot of detractors will say of them "Oh but it has such a bad plot", I respectfully disagree. I would argue they have **simple** plots, but that doesn't inherently mean **bad**. _Triple Threat's_ plot however, is bad. But there's not a crap fight in it from start to finish, and it's one of the better movies that I have absolutely **zero** intention of ever revisiting that I've seen recently.
Isn't It Romantic
I like the "trapped inside a movie/tv show" concept. I've seen it done better elsewhere, but it's still pretty good here. And I very much enjoyed the way it plays out at the end. Actually I think the last time I was this warm on a romcom, it was _When We First Met_. Another Netflix original that I liked for virtually identical reasons.. ...
Absolutely loved it - a "small" but great movie, and best proof that you don't need a big budget to keep an audience glued to the screen and at the edge of their seats. It's basically a room, a man and a telephone, and still manages to tell an intense story (and with a twist). Grim, but still has a few fun moments of relief. Fantastic performance by Jakob Cedergren, who also turned out to be a really nice guy (saw it Zurich Film Festival, and there was a Q&A with ...
I Kill Giants
The CGI beasties were pretty cool to behold, unfortunately they were a pretty minute part of this movie, which is absolutely not what it was marketed to be. Now I've got no problem with a movie subverting expectations, but _I Kill Giants_ didn't offer up enough within its alternatives to come away with a whole-hearted recommendation from me. What it does have is intermitantly interesting, and although I was a little disappointed, it was very far from the worst film I've seen all year.
A french dance troupe, staying for a long weekend in some sort of school building, decide to party after rehearsal, while a wintry blizzard rages outside. Someone spikes the punch, and all hell breaks loose.
The dance scenes are engaging, the visuals hypnotic, the performances are somehow real and completely over the top, and the chaos and carnage intense and memorable. Long, drawn out tracking shots, one of which lasts for 40+ minutes, follow ...
Hold the Dark
***Unpredictable bleak Alaskan adventure, mystery, thriller***
An author and wolf expert (Jeffrey Wright) arrives at a remote village in Alaska to help rid the town of a wolf problem that has resulted in a few dead children. Riley Keough plays the troubled mother and Alexander Skarsgård her taciturn husband coming home from Iraq. James Badge Dale appears as the local sheriff while Julian Black Antelope is on hand as a curious AmerIndian named Cheeon.
Reign of the Supermen
The voice cast is solid, and _Reign of the Supermen_ works well as a sequel to last year's _The Death of Superman_, but it is not one of the various DC Animated universes' truly great entries. At least it wasn't another re-do of a story they've already done.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._

High quality period piece although the book is supposed to be even better. I haven't read the book so maybe you will want to do that first. Back to the movie. The cast is superb and the story is compelling. What more do you need? The story has great characters, and the the cast brings out all their emotional interests. The story unfolds in a series of flashbacks as several characters are unwilling to share what happened during the German occupation with intrepid writer Juliet ...
Spectacularly well made, and even weirdly kind of relatable in parts, _Blindspotting_ may not come away being my favourite movie of the year or anything, but it's the sort of one that I would absolutely not be mad about taking home the big awards. Absolutely felt these characters.
The only movie in **literally** as long as I can remember, that actually gave me nightmares.
