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.

Chappaquiddick

This is an easy movie to avoid even for you historians.

Annihilation

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

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Let me just say that the three Maze Runner films evolved far more powerfully than the Blade Runner sequel or The Hunger Games trifecta.

The Post

Our republic owes a debt of thanks to Daniel Ellsberg. This film will cause you to remember why.

The Shape of Water

Whatever your reaction, this is a unique and creative film.

Norman

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

Baby Driver

The music permeating this film proves that even Hell can be endearing.

Alien: Covenant

Even though I am very fond of this film, what happens to spouses makes it unlikely that it will be shown at any couples’ retreat.
