Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
Written by: Darren Aronofsky
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Harris, Kristen Wiig, Domhnall Gleeson
Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery
Official Site:
Plot: A couple’s relationship is tested when they invite challenging houseguests into their home.


At this point, you have probably already heard about Darren Aronofsky’s newest horror movie, Mother! It got an F Cinemascore and for some reason everyone decided to start listening to Cinemascore. It is one of the most divisive movies of all time, and now that I have seen it, I can totally see why. Not only is it a chore to watch in that special way that all Aronofsky movies tend to be (ie satisfyingly), but it is also visually stimulating in such a way that it might be trying to drive you insane, especially an absurd 30 minute montage ending of morally questionable visuals (hence all the venom...[more]...

The Big Sick


Directed by: Michael Showalter
Written by: Kumail Nanjiani
Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Ray Romano, Holly Hunter
Studio: Amazon Studios
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romantic Comedy
Official Site:


The Big Sick is based on the real life romance between Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani (playing himself) and therapist turned writer, Emily V. Gordon (played by Zoey Kazan). According to the movie, they met during Kumail’s early years when Emily heckled him during one of his regular sets at a local Chicago comedy club. This sets off a whirlwind quirky romance full of dorky chemistry that implodes when Emily learns about Kumail’s family’s plans for him. Kumail comes from a strict Muslim family that wants to arrange his marriage. So, when not telling jokes or going out with Emily, Kumail is being set up by his mother with possible wives in situations that are more like job interviews than first dates. Kumail is clearly not into it and is only trying to placate his mother, but that excuse only goes so far with Emily, who also learns that his parents don’t even know about their getting-serious relationship. Soon after a teary breakup, Emily gets sick with a mysterious illness and put into a medically induced coma to keep her stabilized...[more]...

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword


Directed by: Guy Ritchie
Written by: Joby Harold
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Eric Bana
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance, War
Official Site:


Outside Marvel and Star Wars, no one is making blockbusters as consistently good as Guy Ritchie. Sword, sandals, and sorcery are not usually my favorite. They are too dry and self-serious, usually with some Shakespeare-lite dialog. This is basically Lock, Stock, and 1 Magical Sword. Kinetic pace and roguishly charming characters. Pretty good time as long as you can tolerate 2 video game cutscenes passed off as action sequences

The Discovery


Directed by: Charlie McDowell
Written by: Charlie McDowell
Cast: Jason Segel, Rooney Mara, Robert Redford, Jesse Plemons, Riley Keough
Studio: Endgame Entertainment
Genre: Romance, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: After the afterlife is scientifically verified, an epidemic of suicides convinces a man to return home.


Sometimes a movie comes around that you know nothing about. You’ve seen no trailers, haven’t heard any stories that could even lead you to anticipate. A hypeless movie is almost unheard of in the age of the internet, but an internet company, Netflix, is leading the charge. They play it close to the vest, and one weekend they threw up this tense, intimate sci-fi movie to very little fanfare. Do not get me wrong. This is a strength...[more]...

Song to Song


Directed by: Terrence Malick
Written by: Terrence Malick
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A couple and a waitress are dragged into rock and roll temptation by a music producer.


I like Terrance Malick’s movies, in theory. They are like National Geographic documentaries. They have this curious camera that candidly moves through scenes looking for emotions as if they are animals to be glimpsed at briefly in the wild. They throw out all pretense of having a storyline of any sort thus becoming more like a song, an amorphous depiction of emotion. For me, that sort of robs it of its empathy. Cinema has been about sharing an emotional experience, and music has been about recognizing someone else’s objective emotional truth. I know that’s not the case for everyone, but it is true for me...[more]...

Personal Shopper


Directed by: Olivier Assayas
Written by: Olivier Assayas
Cast: Kristen Stewart
Studio: IFC Films
Official Site:
Plot: A persona shopper to a celebrity spends her nights trying to commune with the dead in search of her brother’s soul.


Kristen Stewart, ever trying to escape the unflattering shadow of the Twilight series, re-teams with her Clouds of Sils Maria director, Olivier Assayas. Their last project together earned her a prestigious French acting award, the César Award for Best Supporting Actress, and they are hoping to catch lightning in a bottle once more with Personal Shopper...[more]...

Kong: Skull Island


Directed by: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Written by: John Gatins
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, John Ortiz, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Shea Whigham, Toby Kebbell, Jason Mitchell
Studio: Legendary, Universal Pictures
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Official Site:


Vietnam War era movies always have the best soundtracks. When so many blockbusters are shooting themselves in the foot trying to create franchises and a mythos to follow, this movie depicts a story that needs to go no further and yet still rich with mythology. While action scenes that are exclusively giant monsters wailing on each other still fills me with mostly boredom, the human characters trying to survive in a strange world is still enough tension to sustain it. A few extra clever creatures that are more than just dinos, a Men in Black agency for giant monsters called Monarch, and John C. Reilly channeling Dennis Hopper from Apocalypse Now make for an entertaining and old-fashioned blockbuster creature feature

Directed by: James Mangold
Written by: Michael Green
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: In the year 2029, an aging Wolverine and ill Pr. Xavier protect a mutant child from a shady corporation.


If there was anything that was consistent in the uneven and often ignorant of continuity X-Men film franchise, it was Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Having appeared in every single one (except for Deadpool), Jackman, a song and dance stage actor, has put everything he has into making Logan one of the coolest, roguish, yet psychologically bruised superheroes in fiction, overcoming his unfortunate out-of-character height. Not even the stingiest fan would still say, “I like him, but he is too tall.” Jackman has officially made the role his own and left very big shoes to fill when they inevitably recast, whenever that may be...[more]...

Directed by: Jeff Nichols
Written by: Jeff Nichols
Cast: Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga, Marton Csokas, Michael Shannon, Nick Kroll, Bill Camp
Studio: Focus Features
Genre: Biography, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: In the 1960s, interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, fight the state of Virginia to prove the integrity of their relationship.


Based on the real life Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia, that made banning interracial marriage unconstitutional, Loving starts off with an upward battle. I find that many of the movies about the years during and leading up to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s have a hard time juggling the idea that this was just how it used to be without outright vilifying anyone. Not that they shouldn’t be vilified, but Bryce Dallas Howard in The Help, for instance, might as well have been twirling a black mustache and tying damsels to train tracks, she was that cartoonish of an antagonist. It is hard to take seriously when so many of us think of it as being such out-dated ways of thinking (despite the recent evidence of the contrary...[more]...

Directed by: Barry Jenkins
Written by: Barry Jenkins
Cast: Naomie Harris, Mahershala Ali, Trevante Rhodes
Studio: A24
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: A young man deals with his dysfunctional upbringing at 3 different moments in his life.


Moonlight is told over the course of three chapters following the character of Chiron (also referred to as “Little” and “Black”) at different moments in his life: childhood, teenage years, and young adulthood. The first two chapters (“Little” and “Chiron”) remind me of Terrance Malick’s Tree of Life, specifically its ambition to mythologize growing up. The weird camera angles and selective replaying of events work like trying to recall memories or dreams. As with our actual youth, we tend to remember things bigger, more unique, and in a more structured narrative than they actually happened. They are the folk tales of our lives...[more]...

In A Valley Of Violence


Directed by: Ti West

Cast: Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Taissa Farmiga, James Ransone, Karen Gillan
Studio: Focus Features
Genre: Action, Western
Official Site:
Plot: traveler on his way to Mexico crosses paths with the violent residents of a dying mine town.


Horror and westerns make for strange relatives. John Carpenter, for instance, got into film-making to make westerns but ended up being one of the most influential voices in horror instead. I’m not entirely sure the correlation. Maybe it is the long-silences leading up to bursts of violence and a shared affection for blood and guts. Either way, seeing horror-aficionado and mumblecore-adjacent filmmaker, Ti West, make this particular leap isn’t really surprising...[more]...

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.

Horrorfan99 at 03:34 AM Sep 12

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.

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.

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]...
