Hell or High Water


Directed by: David Mackenzie
Written by: Taylor Sheridan
Cast: Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Kevin Rankin, Dale Dickey
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A Texas Ranger chases a couple of bank robbing brothers.


I honestly didn’t think much of this movie when I first saw the trailers. Just another in a long line of half-baked pieces of pulp fiction that make up for a lack of narrative depth with overwritten dialog intended to be clever, that just so happens to have tied down a few great actors to flog with its’ terribleness. At the time, I didn’t realize the script was written by Taylor Sheridan, scribe of drug cartel thriller, Sicario, nor did I realize it was directed by David Mackenzie, director of British prison drama, Starred Up. That is some fine pedigree when it comes to revitalizing hard-boiled potboilers as something much more compelling...[more]...

Elvis & Nixon


Directed by: Liza Johnson
Written by: Joey Sagal
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Michael Shannon, Colin Hanks, Evan Peters, Alex Pettyfer, Johnny Knoxville
Studio: Bleeker Street
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: Elvis and Nixon have a secret meeting


Not much is known of this secret meeting other than Elvis wanting to go undercover for the precursor to the DEA and Nixon started recording every meeting soon after. If that is the case, and they basically just made up everything they said to each other, than I think they could have come up with something more interesting. Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey give some measured impressions that seem respectable but still a little over-the-top. Just enough to still get some laughs out of mocking them and not seem like assholes for it.

Knight of Cups


Directed by: Terrence Malick
Written by: Terrence Malick
Cast: Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett
Genre: Drama, Independent
Official Site:
Plot: A screenwriter looks for love and self in shallow Hollywood places and people


The dreamy camerawork of Terrance Malick's 2 previous films (Tree of Life and To The Wonder worked very well in illustrating abstract ideas: Life/Memory/Grief for Tree of Life and Love/Heartbreak for To the Wonder. Knight of Cups is a point of diminishing returns for said style. Knight of Cups seeks to find depth in looking in the wrong places for validation, but that is too universal a truth to analyze. Where Tree of Life nd To the Wonder almost hypnotizes you into feeling the same thing as the characters in the film, Knight of Cups instead feels like it is bored with its own ability. And you feel bored as a result. Malick is never not ambitious though and that alone is too be commended, that and the occasional moments of truth that do work, just not enough to secure the whole movie being a must see.

I was iffy on watching this because the story seems a bit too familiar for a Malick movie. To the Wonder wasn't great, but it had enough to say to make it work. It seems he's just getting lost in his visuals to really find a story to work with and actors will always line up to star in his movies regardless of the plot. His next film is a documentary which is perfect for his style.

The Phenom


Directed by: Noah Buschel
Written by: Noah Buschel
Cast: Ethan Hawke, Paul Giamatti, Johnny Simmons
Studio: RLJ Entertainment
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A stressed out baseball player works through his feelings


Johnny Simmons does well as a baseball player ready to crack under his own stress, talking out his feelings with a therapist, an uncharacteristically underwhelming Paul Giamatti. Episodic in nature, Simmons bounces from abusive relationship to abusive relationship from vampiric friends and family, especially his father, another decent nuanced performance from Ethan Hawke. It just lacks a sense of cohesion to really knock it out of the park (pun intended)

Suicide Squad


Directed by: David Ayer
Written by: Justin Marks
Cast: Jared Leto, Will Smith, Maggie Grace, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Scott Eastwood, Lonnie Common, David Harbour, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Action, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: A group of supervillains is used by a shady government agency for suicide missions


Suicide Squad looked like it would be a significant tonal shift for the DCEU, but it only barely was. A few more vibrant colors and a couple of livelier performances (especially Will Smith) aren't exactly significant. Instead it steamrolls characterization into sloppy exposition and team chemistry into an unearned theme of family. Jared Leto's much maligned d Joker was decent but struggled to make a lasting mark. Margot Robbie's much hyped Harley Quinn was ultimately waterdowned, Viol Davis' Amanda Waller was underused, and the entire Squad was reduced to crappy stereotypes. But Will Smith rocked it, and somehow Joel Kinnaman just keeps circling the role that will bring him stardom. The more and more I think about it, the more and more I dislike it.

Everybody Wants Some


Directed by: Richard Linklater
Written by: Richard Linklater
Cast: Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell, Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, Jonathan Breck
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A look at the lives of a college baseball team


Not the great follow up to Dazed and Confused anyone hoped for. It lacks the universal feeling of the struggles. Actually, it lacks any struggle at all. It works better as a cultural time capsule: the fashion, the music, and the shallow subcultures that followed those things during the 80s. It may have something to say in terms of how all the cast jumps subculture to subculture, a criticism of their shallowness that they were built around pretending to be rebellious. It only works as a comedy about dopey college kids, and even that is not incredibly funny.

Directed by: Duncan Jones
Written by: Charles Leavitt
Cast: Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Toby Kebbell, Dominic Cooper, Clancy Brown, Rob Kazinsky, Daniel Wu, Ryan Robbins, Robert Kazinsky
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot: A kingdom of knights must contend with a group of inter-dimensional refugees


Warcraft looked like a dry CGI crapfest, a discount Lord of the Rings (which I already am not crazy about), but it was a lot more lively, interesting, and thrilling than I expected it to be. Duncan Jones definitely doesn't forget about the political thought behind the game (or so I've herd the game has), however it is not a very detailed portrayal. It is about as deep as blockbusters ever get. Talent like Travis Fimmell, Dominic Cooper, and Toby Kebbell are able to bring out human lived-in characters, which seems often difficult with pseudo "ye Olde English" dialect. It often gets into stupid fantasy mumbo jumbo (the use of a golem for instance seems forced in due to too much time passing without an action sequence), and it has the shitty YA adaptation "this is only the beginning" type of an ending. Big budget projects I think have given up on endings.

Directed by: Daniel Ragussis
Written by: Daniel Ragussis
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Toni Collette, Burn Gorman, Sam Trammell
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A young FBI agent goes undercover to infiltrate a white separatist movement.


Imperium, first and foremost, will be remembered for being the movie where Harry Potter became a skinhead. The contrast between the two roles is just too great to not make you chuckle at its own ludicrousness. Despite his bold choices in roles in a his post-Potter career, Daniel Radcliffe will have a hard time avoiding recognition as the boy who lived, however, if there was a role that could break that recognition, it is this one as FBI Agent Nate Foster. He delivers some incredible intensity, whether his pulse is literally pounding while fighting alongside the skinheads or he is putting on a brave face trying to make good with some truly despicable individuals. It is our empathy for his character that drives the tone of the movie...[more]...

Green Room


Directed by: Jeremy Saulnier
Written by: Jeremy Saulnier
Cast: Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, Mark Webber, Alia Shawkat, Macon Blair, Eric Edelstein
Studio: Broad Green Pictures
Genre: Crime, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A punk band is forced to fight for their lives against a gang of skinheads


Blue Ruin was a clever and sophisticated thriller that has its thematic arcs continued in this movie, led by Anton Yelchin. Director Jeremy Saulnier depicts people stuck in cycles of violence by depicting it in its most cruel and unapologetic fashion, never to be confused for glorifying it. He creates fear from real, almost tangible stakes and Patrick Stewart, despite popular opinion, is NOT playing against type. His usual likable and intelligent screen presence is put into new context as a true believing white supremacist, which makes him all the more fucking infuriating.

The Do Over


Directed by: Steven Brill
Written by: Kevin Barnett
Cast: Adam Sandler, David Spade, Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Nick Swardson
Studio: Netflix
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A meek man's life is driven crazy when he rekindles a friendship with his reckless high school friend.


There is a plot here that would actually make for an awesome in over their head type movie of normal schlubs on an insane adventure, which I cannot explain to you without spoiling. That said, when the reality of their situation sets in Sandler and Spade actually do some solid character work. Unfortunately, it is not enough. Sandler's sense of humor has aged like milk. Every joke consists of grossing out he or his supporting actors so that we can laugh at their disgusted faces, usually at the expense of being mistaken for gay. Faces aren't punchlines.

The Lobster


Directed by: Yorgos Lanthimos
Written by: Yorgos Lanthimos
Cast: Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, John C. Reilly
Studio: Protagonist Films
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: In a world where being single is outlawed, a group of adult singles meet at a retreat to pair up


So many of the reviews that I have seen for this movie talk about Yorgos Lanthimos previous films which I sadly know nothing about. I am into it though. His skewed look at the world holds up a dirty funhouse mirror to our society. The triviliazing of the dating scene, how and why we meet people, and the obligation we feel to be together. He pairs that with a second half about a rebellious group of single people that holds some dramatic importance but the movie doesn't pivot into it very well. It starts losing the dry satirical elements and goes into more dystopic thriller territory. It lacked narrative punch.

10 Cloverfield Lane


Directed by: Dan Trachtenberg
Written by: Damien Chazelle
Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, John Gallagher Jr.
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Action, Mystery
Official Site:
Plot: A woman wakes up after a car accident in a bomb shelter where she is told the world ended.


I thought very little of this movie. Cloverfield was a cool enough movie, but I cared very little about its franchise potential. The cloverfield in the title is sort of a decoy. It has nothing to do with the original movie. If its franchise direction is more anthology and less mytharc I could get behind that more. The marketing really short sells what ends up being a pretty awesome performance reel for everyone involved, especially John Goodman. It doesn't exactly stick the landing though. It all kind of peters out, and it's commitment to ambiguity is tenuous at best. In that regard I think it has something in common with The Invitation but as a failure. There is still a lot to be thrilled by though.

The Nice Guys


Directed by: Shane Black
Written by: Shane Black
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe, Keith David, Beau Knapp
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Mystery
Official Site:
Plot: A hired goon teams up with a private dick to find a girl


Shane Black makes fun movies. They are just smart enough to seem twisty and keep you guessing, but they still need a leap of faith SPOILER (who cares what a porno has to say about anything) END SPOILER. He also goes over terrain he is familiar with (the "he'll stop doing it" joke from the trailer is also in iron Man 3), but he mixes and matches things with such precision that he makes even the tired old buddy cop scenario feel rejuvenated. It helps when he has too masterclass actors, Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, to surprise everyone with their comic chops. And a different time period to play around in. That's always fun. Plus he is one of the few filmmaker who will play up kinetic stunt heavy violence for laughs, specifically good laughs because there are a lot of action movies that try to be funny and fail miserably.

Directed by: Tod Williams
Written by: Adam Alleca
Cast: John Cusack, Samuel L. Jackson, Isabelle Fuhrman, Stacey Keach
Studio: Benaroya Pictures
Genre: Action, Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A cell phone signal turns users into zombies


he idea of a Stephen King book being made into a movie starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson reminds me of 1408, an underrated horror gem. It stars Cusack as a sort-of-famous paranormal debunker who gets wind of the titular haunted room in a hotel run by Samuel L. Jackson. It turns out it is really haunted, and Cusack goes for a really trippy ride. He even gives a good performance in it. This movie only lives up to it by being an adaptation by THAT writer starring THOSE guys. It is missing everything that makes cinema work as a medium...[more]...

Nice review, and I'm really glad I read this because it's hard for me to turn down any adaptation of Stephen King's (seen more of them than I've read by far), but I'm zombied out myself and this just doesn't sound intriguing at all and as you said, outdated by this point. It's really too bad because I too loved 1408 and the cast.

Directed by: Alejandro Amenabar
Written by:
Cast: Emma Watson, David Thewlis, Ethan Hawke
Studio: Radius TWC
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A detective investigates a young woman's abuse at the hands of Satanists.


Ethan Hawke does his best hard-boiled detective, and Emma Watson steps confidently out of her comfort zone. Neither can save the movie from being a paint-by-number thriller though. Like a pretensious episode of Law and Order that tries to energize itself with a feeling of supernatural intervention, but it botches its attempt to fool us into doubting what is real and not real. It may have helped if it had more enlightened views on religion to go with its seriousness. This is probably the most interesting thing about it though. It feels like it was either written by a philosophy student who just learned the definition of atheist or by a devout Christian who has never even reluctantly doubted his own belief. That's a weird thing to feel like.

Jane Got A Gun


Directed by: Gavin O'Connor
Written by: Brian Duffield
Cast: Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Joel Edgerton, Rodrigo Santoro
Genre: Western
Official Site:
Plot: A woman reaches out to her gunhand ex-lover when her husband comes home riddled with bullets and a message that he is being followed by killers.


The production was plagued with the kind of problems that made most people consider it DOA. They were right. It never truly has any confidence in its actors despite starring some of the more consistent performers. Their histories are written in their behavior, but flashbacks are sloppily inserted to fill in the blanks with obvious events. The actor's quiet moments are undermined by moments of over acting, especially Natalie Portman, who had more than one uncontrollable outburst that never felt authentic. It was all setting up for an "epic" shootout that was too brief to be worth all the previous story.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot


Directed by: Glenn Ficarra
Written by:
Cast: Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Comedy, War
Official Site:
Plot: A newly appointed journalist finds herself in Afghanistan covering the war effort.


Seeing this movie universally shrugged off as just ok, I suspected this movie to be much worse than it turned out. Tina Fey puts her comedy chops to work to deliver a charmingly in over her head lead character. Her search for a good story forces her to cross paths with a number of interesting, tragic, and/or funny characters that helps put a personal face on the barrage of headlines and screen scrolls that neuter the information before it reaches the American people. It never quite reaches the dramatic heights that its subject manner is capable of, but it still makes for an enjoyable watch that ultimately earns its aspirational sappiness.

Triple 9


Directed by: John Hillcoat
Written by: John Hillcoat
Cast: Aaron Paul, Kate Winslet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Gal Gadot, Casey Affleck, Teresa Palmer, Clifton Collins Jr., Norman Reedus, Michael K. Williams, Woody Harrelson
Studio: Open Road
Genre: Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Some crooked cops try to keep their bank robbery a secret


As a fan of John Hillcoat, I am thoroughly disappointed. The cast is star-studded and should have been able to carry this movie in their sleep. Anthony Mackie and Casey Affleck have a pretty great Training Day esque thing going on, but the rest of the cast is amping up every emotion to fucking 11. Every decision is life and death, all dialog is delivered through grit teeth and glazed over eyes. They are feeling every emotion at every moment and it is exhausting in a really bad way.

X-Men: Apocalypse


Directed by: Bryan Singer
Written by:
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Rose Byrne, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Evan Peters, Carolina Bartczak
Studio: Twentieth Century Fox
Genre: Action, Comic Book, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: The first and most powerful mutant is resurrected and tries to take over the world.


I have thoroughly enjoyed the prequel trilogy thus far. Turning them into period pieces has allowed them to cleverly incorporate the time period when the X-Men were first created and thriving and stick out among the other superhero blockbusters. They have especially been gifted with some fine performers, specifically James MacAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence, who seems to suffer this time around. The wounded soldier pretending to be cold-hearted routine is cast off for a more stoically heroic performance that backfires. Similar has been said for Oscar Isaac's understated Apocalypse performance, but I can't agree. I thought he came off confident and cool, a true god among men who literally doesn't worry about anything. Sadly the climatic battle was too much of the same, and although there is a valiant effort to give every character their fair share of screentime, they are teetering on the cusp having too many characters to know what to do with.

The Witch


Directed by: Robert Eggers
Written by: Robert Eggers
Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie
Studio: A24 Films
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A family in 1630s New England are plagued by demonic forces.


Possibly one of the finer directorial debuts. The Witch combines the right amount of plausible period authenticity (I'm not historian, I can't confirm anything) with some seriously trippy crackpot imagery that makes even a bigger horror show out of by-gone religious paranoia and hysteria than they already are. Led by a fantastic Anya Taylor-Joy who hopefully proves a breakout star from this tension pretzel. Rather than subvert the old stories to reveal more personal struggles and inner demons, it attempts to have its cake and eat it too. It works, all at once, as a cautionary tale of dogmatic belief and as a story someone from that period my share to strengthen those beliefs. The only negative I can think of is that, while its final image is haunting on its own, the preceding resolution could have packed more punch to back up all that anticipation.
