Norman

Warning: Oren Moverman, the film’s co-producer, was the director of the God awful The Dinner.

A Quiet Passion

Many scenes in the film are interrupted by a narrator reading a Dickinson poem. It causes you to remember why you probably find most of her poetry to be a bit dull.

The Lost City of Z

How could any film about the exploration of the Amazon before 1925 possibly bore anyone? The answer may be found in why this film is dying at the box office.

The Circle

You would think it would be impossible for Tom Hanks and Emma Watson to appear in a below average film. But as the old saying goes, “Not anymore.”

The Dinner

The only way to see this movie is after you are drugged at a dentist’s office and waiting for a root canal.

Colossal

This is one of those films where the previews make it seem more appealing than the actual film itself.

Their Finest

This film will remind you to read “Five Came Back”, the powerful book about Hollywood directors in World War II.

Though dying at the box office, even Casablanca told a great story that involved a woman in love with two men.

Gifted

This film contains a ravishing performance by a little girl not seen since Drew Barrymore in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982).
