Can You Ever Forgive Me?

This is a unique, dark R-rated film that lovingly portrays unlikeable people.

Searching and A Simple Favor

Searching and A Simple Favor are two films flying under the cinematic radar screen.

BlacKkKlansman

I join my nephew John Hammerle, a lawyer and movie reviewer in Chicago, in describing BlacKkKlansman as the best film released to this date in 2018.

The Equalizer 2

No one, and I mean no one, has ever killed with more fervent passion than Robert McCall.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

This film is a perfect example of why I see most movies alone.  I almost always enjoy the ride, and few others share my enthusiasm.

Hotel Artemis

The only creative thing about this film is the inventive name of the characters ranging from Waikiki, Niagara, Honolulu, Acapulco and Everest.

Ocean’s 8

This film reminded me of Book Club only with talented actresses 20 years younger.

Molly’s Game

Despite the fact that this film lasts 2 hours and 20 minutes, trial lawyers in particular are likely to enjoy the ride.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri

Simply an outstanding movie experience.
