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.

Get Out

Catherine Keener’s menacing use of a teacup and spoon will make you want to keep both in cupboards at home.

Arrival

Given the massive praise for this film, with my criticism I felt like the only poor sap who flunked the bar exam after graduating from law school.

The Girl on the Train

This is a hopeless film about hopeless people.

Complete Unknown

Another quirky, small film lost in cinematic space.

The Nice Guys

In the words of a close friend, “Hammerle, this was the worst f–king movie I’ve ever seen.”

10 Coverfield Lane

Even if you’re shaking your head, set your doubts aside and see this movie.

The Witch

I’d give the film an A+ for style and a C- for deteriorating content.

Hail, Caesar!

Even average Coen Brothers’ films have a bit of merit.
