Searching and A Simple Favor

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

Hereditary

This film adopted the Red Queen’s mantra in Alice in Wonderland (2010) “Off with their head.”

You Were Never Really Here

Well, I kept my losing streak going. I followed-up two disappointing films (Foxtrot and Lean on Pete) with what will possibly be the worst film of 2018.

Annihilation

The title of this film reflects the tragic decision most viewers would take if forced to watch this film a second time.

Murder on the Orient Express

Who would have thought that Hercule Poirot was as cold-blooded as a penguin?

Loving Vincent

Van Gogh’s torment immediately before and after his death are vividly played out in a captivating manner.

Wind River

How can you love a film filled with tension, anxiety and grief? I did, but I wanted to warn you.

Atomic Blonde

For those who enjoyed prior James Bond and Jason Bourne films, why criticize a similar film starring a woman?

My Cousin Rachel

Other than Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy and Wonder Woman, Hollywood has clearly gotten bored with itself in 2017.
