NOCTURNAL ANIMALS

Novel adaptations are obviously no new trend, but how about a novel adaptation that’s principally focused on somebody reading an entire novel? Well, now we’re breaking new ground here, folks! Art gallery owner Susan Morrow (Amy Adams) lives a depressing, vapid life with a crumbling marriage, dwindling […]

MOONLIGHT

Great coming of age stories are few and far between. No doubt, watching the life of someone unfold before you can be interesting, but the thing about life is, most of it is dull and boring. There needs to be some dramatic heft and emotional beats to […]

LOVING

There’s two different ways you can go about doing a historical drama, especially ones that focus on landmark US Supreme Court decisions. You can either focus on the legal process, with suited attorneys and judges bantering in courtrooms for two hours, or you can just focus on […]

ALLIED

Put your hands together and give him a round of applause, ladies and gentlemen! Yes, yes, that’s right. Robert Zemeckis has officially abandoned that creepy motion capture nonsense he was doing for years and is now back to making films with real people and real stories! No […]

ARRIVAL

I’m not really the biggest fan of science fiction. While yeah, I like stuff like Star Wars, those don’t really fall into the “hard sc-fi” category, such as Star Trek or 2001: A Space Odyssey. It’s a very broad genre that mixes with a lot of others, making […]

GOAT

I don’t understand fraternities and their hazing. I really don’t. Dehumanizing and humiliating others as some sort of “rite of passage” is completely baffling to me. It’s even more baffling that these impressionable kids will put themselves through it in order to just gain some sort of […]

SULLY

I’m not a big fan of clearly manufactured drama of true events. When the famous plane landing in the Hudson River happened, all I remember was that Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger successfully landed the plane, was lauded as a hero, and that was pretty much it. There […]

WAR DOGS

You really have to be careful when a film promotes itself to be “based on a true story/events/moments/experiences/accounts/anecdotes/etc.” While yes, there may have once been a priest who performed an “exorcism”, I highly doubt it got to the ridiculous heights of people spewing projectile blood from their […]
