The First Purge

Have we already begun our version of the Purge by separating children from their parents in the name of domestic security?

Dunkirk

If you majored in history in college as I did, this film teaches you more about an event in World War II than you will ever learn in a textbook.

Hotel Artemis

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

First Reformed

This was one of those films that left you feeling that it was a class assignment where you were required to write a paper outlining your reaction.

Hereditary

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

Ocean’s 8

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

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.
