|80 T6||Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017) - Nov 02, 2017
"This was a perfect blend of drama and 70's action exploitation. Vaughn has the silver tongue of his Swingers character, but with a southern drawl and a 'not-giving-a-fuck' attitude and it's presto chango! Also: I loved the car punching scene."
|80 T6||Blade Runner 2049 (2017) - Nov 01, 2017
"I enjoyed this slightly more than the original. Of course I'm thirty years older. Gorgeous visuals reminiscent of Fritz Lang and cinema of yore, BR transports you into its alternative timeline dystopia. This is loooooong. After much thought, there were precisely two scenes I could have done without."
|80 T6||Colossal (2017) - Oct 30, 2017
"This was all entertainment, zero predictability. Can't understand why it's as underrated as it is."
|75 T4||Brad's Status (2017) - Oct 30, 2017
"I enjoyed this quite a bit. Stiller plays an immediately identifiable character -someone we can all connect with, and he does it flawlessly. He may play more or less the same guy in every movie, but I can't see that he's acting because it appears so natural. He should win an Oscar at some point."
|65 T2||It (2017) - Oct 30, 2017
"This was at best a sub par kid drama. The source material is scary stuff, but all the razzle dazzle and CGI feels as removed as watching a kid watching a scary clown movie. Excellent art direction is all."
|75 T4||Wind River (2017) - Oct 06, 2017
"Cry me a wind river. This was more of a tear jerker than a thriller. It's full of great performances, and nothing too Hollywoodsy or bombastic in the storytelling (relative to the rest of the fare out there)."
|70 T3||Life (2017) - Jun 11, 2017
"I went into this not knowing a thing. It could have been about the board game for all I knew. It has the same old plot contrivances and lack of character development that plague so many movies of this genre, but that's the thing - I didn't know what genre movie I was getting into, which made it more fun."
|60 T2||Split (2017) - Mar 29, 2017
"Good vehicle for an actor to practice many roles, and McAvoy delivers. The first 20 minutes show promise and then soon enough the movie dawdles and meanders as purposely as a toddler in a mall. No real surprises or twists. I was a bit disappointed. Though, don't get me wrong -- worlds better than Lady in the Water."
|75 T4||Get Out (2017) - Mar 22, 2017
"I would never imagine that a comedy person could direct a tense movie like this. What a bizarre horror/thriller, or whatever you wanna call it. High marks for originality."
|75 T4||The Visit (2015) - Feb 26, 2017
"All the bad rapping aside, I found this to be an entertaining little horror thriller. M. Night is back!"
