Saulnier is definitely on my to watch list. I loved Blue Ruin and think Hold the Dark looks pretty good. Green Room however carried some serious buzz with it and I must say I was a little disappointed. Its beautifully shot but the road from beginning to end hits some questionable patches which hold the piece up from being great ...
Let me start off by addressing the elephant locked in the basement: Some of the dialogue in this movie is cliché in the absolute worst possible way. The. Worst.
But that aside, _Delirium_ really is not so bad as I had feared.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
FilmGator A private user reviewed LEGO DC Super Heroes - Aquaman: Rage Of Atlantis (2018)
LEGO DC Super Heroes - Aquaman: Rage Of Atlantis
Well it was certainly no worse than _Justice League_. Let's hope it is worse than the other _Aquaman_ movie coming out this year though.
It's bad, but having a definitive lead character, and the rest of the heroes as a supporting cast is working better than the ones where they try to make everyone share the spotlight equally ...
7 Days in Entebbe
Entebbe is a subject I have been interested in from an early age, having seen all three of the previous movies made on the subject (Operation Thunderbolt, Victory at Entebbe and the best, Raid on Entebbe in 1976) but I also did decided to undertake factual research into the raid some time before this film was ever embarked upon ...
I can't elevate _Eighth Grade_ to the status that my peers have, it just wasn't all that to me. But it was still very good, and very real, that tangible sort of youth that comes with dedication to the format.
_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman wrote and directed this tear-jerking rom-dram, which looks eerily familiar to the NBC series, give or take a couple A-list cast members (Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac, Annette Bening, Mandy Patinkin, Antonio Banderas … breathe). Like Us, the film pulses between the characters’ mysteriously interconnected narratives, which are set between N.Y.C. and Spain
Sorry to Bother You
_Sorry To Bother You is “unapollogetic”, “unafraid”, “imaginative”._
These are the reviews of audiences, and critics; it’s hard to find someone that didn’t like this movie (unless you’re going to burrow through the Rotten Tomatoes audience reviews, in which case I’m sorry.)
The cast is packed with familiar faces: Lakeith Stanfield (as Cassius) who also happened to be in _Get Out_, Jermaine Fowler who had just finished work on CBS’ _Superior Donuts_, Danny Glover ...
I'm really glad that I didn't read the blurb for _10x10_, because the mystery of the dynamic between the two leads is what kept me invested. Having now read it, I think it might have ruined me if I had known what was happening going in. Although if you have read it yourself, _10x10_ might still be worth seeing for the climax, it's not strong enough to truly recommend ...
Bad Times at the El Royale
_Bad Times At The El Royale_ was exceptional. Through its preview period, I was hooked from the teaser trailer to the 24th TV Spot released. Drew Goddard knew how to make a wonderous and exciting thriller through its magnificent casting and so much more. All these trailers set high expectations which made me worry a little bit as I don’t like getting myself too excited for movies because sometimes, I get very disappointed. But with this, it exceeded my high expectations. _Bad Times At The El Royale_ just crushed it and ...
Yet another anticipated film from an actor-turned-director is Boy Erased, the work of Golden Globe nominee Joel Edgerton, who wrote and stars in the film.
The flick follows the recently outed son of a Baptist preacher, Jared (Lucas Hedges), after he’s forced to partake in the church’s gay conversion program. Based on the critically acclaimed memoir by Garrard Conley, Boy Erased features an all-star cast which, in addition to Hedges and Edgerton, boasts Oscar winners ...
Hot Summer Nights
There should be more films made that take place in the 90s. And they should all star Timothee Chalamet and Maika Monroe. They're electrifying in Hot Summer Nights. This film is a bit of a mess at first, tonally jarring, and feels like Scorsese/P.T.Anderson-lite at times. But if you're going to borrow, borrow from the greats. It has a great soundtrack and is surprisingly dark by the end, ending on a note both mysterious ...
I sorta don't mind movies that throw you in the deep end in terms of setting. No explanation, just "Werewolves and ghosts are real, deal with it, you wanna know how our werewolves and ghosts differ from somebody else's? Watch the damn movie, you'll figure it out". And that aspect of _Slice_ totally worked for me. But there was other things that didn't. Things like this playing out more like a couple of back-to-back episodes of a TV show than movie, a TV show we didn't get to watch the first ...
White Boy Rick
There is an another more compelling story behind White Boy Rick - the tale of the FBI's manipulation of a young witness, grimy Detroit cops, a dishonest mayor and over the top sentences for non-violent crimes.
Unfortunately, the motion picture concentrates more on the connections between a low-life single parent and his children, which is a significantly less captivating story. Much slower than anticipated.
Overall I liked The Nun it was a spooky fun movie with some pretty good shots and scenes (lighting, camera angles, and such). The transitions from one scene to another was a bit off and the story overall had a more fantasy tone over the more grounded and realistic tone The Conjuring and Annabelle movies had. Much of the story felt like it was just forced to setup a shot or scene which does hurt it. It isn't a perfect movie but I'd watch it again. It is like Indiana Jones ...
A Simple Favor
First and foremost, this film feels like someone went to their local grocery store, grabbed a random three-dollar mystery novel off the checkout shelf, and decided to make it a movie with some extremely popular and attractive people. In other words, it's a silly mystery movie with crazy, zany twists and turns.
Some of those twists and turns were easy enough to see coming, but some of them were straight out of left field. In ...
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight
My all-time favourite superhero film (_Batman: The Dark Knight Returns_) is an animated DC movie, so I'm always willing to give a chance to whatever they bring out in my never-ending search to find the next great one. Unfortunately, most end up being pretty poor offerings. But there's a decent number that end up somewhere in the middle, and _Gotham by Gaslight_ is on the higher end of that spectrum in between ...
I didn't have to get very far in to _The Tale_ before I realised I was in for something different. Something more. The way _The Tale_ suckerpunches you with some rather distressing truths about memory, imagination, and sense-of-self, right from the outset, is simultaneously riveting, and horrifying.
Very confronting, genuinely difficult to watch, but very important, and depressingly, very relatable. _The Tale_ is grimly realistic, and as a unique form of storytelling I must recommend ...
What Keeps You Alive
Has exactly one (1) male character in the cast and some gorgeous shots, on top of some pretty intense brutality. Plus the fact that the homosexuality of the leads was just an accepted fact about the characters, not the point of the story (even if that story was still a bit grim) which literally just yesterday I was asking for. Unfortunately, every character makes decisions that are so stupid and non-human it verges on absurdity, which detracted from my enjoyment hugely.
__So much potential, but still a
If you have nothing else to do and need to fill some time, this is an okay respite. But, don't expect anything more than a *standard military action movie* with cliched dialogue, unreasonable scenarios, and mediocre acting ...
It's cool that even with all the zombie material we've gotten in the past decade-ish, we still are getting some original spins every now and then. There are things in _Patient Zero_ that were new to me, and new or not, Stanley Tucci was great. But some nuggets of originality in a genre that often lacks it is not the same as a movie being **good**. And _Patient Zero_ does have some really dumb things. I had an okay time with it, but I don't think I'd ever revisit it.
