Special Correspondents


Directed by: Ricky Gervais
Written by: Ricky Gervais
Cast: Eric Bana
Studio: Unanimous Entertainment
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: When 2 reporters lose their plane tickets and passports on the way to the airport, they set up across the street from their radio station and fake news coverage.


British comedian, Ricky Gervais, has become infamous for personifying the fine line between sarcastically funny and being just a plain asshole. He is inching ever so closely to being just an asshole ever since splitting with his long time collaborator, Stephen Merchant, whose own solo work has also suffered without Gervais’ complimentary sense of humor...[more]...

Mr. Right


Directed by: Paco Cabezas
Written by: Max Landis
Cast: Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Tim Roth, Anson Mount, James Ransone, The RZA
Studio: Amasia Entertainment, Circle of Confusion
Genre: Comedy, Horror
Official Site:
Plot: A young woman falls for a man who turns out to be a hitman


I am a big fan of Sam Rockwell. I will pretty much watch him in anything. Despite my admiration, he doesn’t exactly have a Tom Cruise/Will Smith level pick of the litter and finds himself performing in sub-par indie work, usually as one of the few, if not only, bright spot. With Mr. Right, he is in a very similar position. He plays a hitman who has had a change of heart. Rather than kill the people he is hired to kill, he kills his clients for trying to buy his services in the first place. It is a wacky, cool kind of character where it works best to just let Rockwell off his leash. As Travis Bickle by way of Robin Williams, he mugs and dances his way through typical shootouts and fight scenes granting new life to a genre that often seems either dead or way too grim. The action scenes could use all the help they could get. They are occasionally clever and mostly fun, but they could use some refining...[more]...

Midnight Special


Directed by: Jeff Nichols
Written by: Jeff Nichols
Cast: Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, Bill Camp, Sam Shepard, Scott Haze
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: Bright says how private businesses handle their bathrooms should be up to the owners, not government. He knows of no city in South Carolina where that’s an issue, but he supports a controversial North Carolina law that’s drawn a backlash nationwide. Bright’s bill would not only stop cities and counties in South Carolina from enacting nondiscrimination legislation – similar to a Charlotte ordinance struck down by the North Carolina legislature in a special-called session last month – it also would require multiple-use bathrooms in all S.C. public buildings be “designated for and only used by a person based on his biological sex.”

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice


Directed by: Zack Snyder
Written by: David Goyer
Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa, Jeremy Irons, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jena Malone, Michael Shannon, Holly Hunter, Ezra Miller
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: Its pretty much in the title.


Director Zack Snyder continues his strange interpretation of Superman. I don't think he likes Superman. I think he is trying to make him interesting by making him controversial, but that's the wrong direction in my opinion. Maybe if he bothered to show Superman's side a little more often, but his struggles are mostly shallow philosophy. He frames a montage of Superman rescues so forboding they couldn't possibly be awe-inspiring or uplifting and reinforces in the audience the fear of Superman that all the other characters, who narratively are antagonists, are pushing. Batman fairs no better. Affleck and Irons are great as Bats and Alfred, but everytime Bats gets distracted by his obession with Superman he sounds more like Trump talking about Muslims or Mexicans. Passionate but myopic...[more]...

The Revenant


Directed by: Alejandro Irritu
Written by: Alejandro Irritu
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Western
Official Site:


If DiCaprio misses out on the Best Actor Oscar again this year, he should at the very least win for Most Punished. Shot in the actual blistering cold, DiCaprio plays a Native American trained tracker escorting a group of fur-trappers through some pretty rough terrain. When he is attacked by a bear, he miraculosly survives to seek revenge on those who left him for dead. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu follows up his trippy Birdman with the ultimate actor endurance test. He captures the beautiful landscapes with a dreamy drifting camera angle and contrasts it against uncompromising danger brought to life by DiCaprio and co-star Tom Hardy, two of the most committed actors working today.

Directed by: Paolo Sorrentino
Written by: Paolo Sorrentino
Cast: Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Paul Dano, Jane Fonda
Studio: Fox Searchlight
Genre: Drama
Official Site:


It is sad when older actors are relegated to roles that are beneath them because they simply don’t write interesting roles of her certain age. That is why it is so nice to see something like Youth come along. Youth sees best friends Michael Caine, a retired composer, and Harvey Keitel, an aging filmmaker, taking personal time at a swanky resort where they come to terms with their quickly progressing ages. It’s strongest element is its very strange tone. It is almost whimsical with a lyrical tone that makes all these heart-breaking moments feel less like an obituary and more like a eulogy, a celebration instead of a funeral.

Mississippi Grind


Directed by: Anna Boden
Written by: Anna Boden
Cast: Ben Mendelsohn, Ryan Reynolds, Sienna Miller, Analeigh Tipton
Studio: A24 Films
Genre: Drama
Official Site:


Addiction dramas area dime a dozen and quite often they about the utter destruction of a person. There are so many poisons that literally eat away at people that they can’t seem to quit. Gambling addiction is much different. It is not about being sick, it is about chasing a dream. It is about chasing hope, something any good artist can relate to. Directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden excel relating to problematic heroes. Here, they team up Ben Mendolsohn’s degenerate gambler with Ryan Reynold’s wayward rebel in a road movie overflowing with chemistry harkening back to the buddy comedies of an older Hollywood.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl


Directed by: Marielle Heller
Written by: Marielle Heller
Cast: Alexander Skarsgard, Kristen Wiig, Bel Powley, Christoper Meloni
Studio: Sony Pictures Classics
Genre: Drama
Official Site:


Diary of the a Teenage Girl is a bit challenging. The story is about a 15 year old girl who has an affair with her mother’s boyfriend, a man she aggressively flirts with. She seems to learn all the wrong lessons from it, frank about her beliefs she did the right thing. Her mind is often daydreaming in graphic novel illustrations constantly reminding us that she is just a child, a child, played by an adult actor who spends a good part of the movie completely nude. It is hard to figure out at first what the intended message was, however, as the movie goes on, the frankness with which the teenage girl misinterprets her emerging love life is also applied when reality sets in and things take a turn for the worse.

Cop Car


Directed by: Jon Watts
Written by: Jon Watts
Cast: Kevin Bacon, Shea Whigham, Camryn Manheim
Studio: Focus Features
Genre: Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: Two young boys find an abandoned cop car and go for a joy ride.


I have always had a soft spot for movies about kids running away and going on an adventure. Goonies. Stand By Me. Monster Squad! Mud was probably the last good one. Here, director Watts puts his two miniature competitive spirits smack dab in the middle of a field talking about where they are going to run away to. It is no time at all before they cross paths with an empty cop car. Their childhood innocence and curiosity is hilarious here. They throw a rock to see if they can get the attention of a cop that might be hiding and then get worried about fingerprints they left on the tiny stone. This sets the tone for this darkly comedic tale of two boys trying to one up themselves with little to no appreciation for the dangers of what they are doing, from trying to see how fast they can get the car to pointing live weapons at each other while wearing Kevlar...[more]...

Beasts of No Nation


Directed by: Cary Fukunaga
Written by: Cary Fukunaga
Cast: Idris Elba
Studio: Netflix
Genre: Drama, War
Official Site:


Beasts of No Nation is a dramatization of a big problem that is out of sight out of mind in my neck of the woods. It is one of those things that I hear about or read about every so often and feel really guilty about not thinking about it all the time. That problem is child soldiers and the indoctrination of one such soldier is portrayed with sobering sincerity. Idris Elba might be getting a lot of credit for his larger than life Commandant, but he is completely blown out of the water by the mature beyond his age Abraham Attah.

Written by: Amy Schumer
Cast: Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, Daniel Radcliffe, Colin Quinn, Mike Birbiglia, LeBron James, Method Man
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:


Amy Schumer was firing on all cylinders when she got a chance to make a movie with Judd Apatow. It is a perfect time for people to start piling shit on her for being successful, and they are. This does not make Trainwreck a bad movie. With it, Schumer, writer and star, works through many insecurities she may (or technically may not) have about love and commitment. It takes the funny observations that are saved for the stand-up mic and played with a sense of honesty that makes it borderline dramatic. The relationship between Schumer and her on-screen boyfriend, a particularly awesome, Bill Hader, is as real as any that have appeared in the cinema.

The Martian

Studio: Twentieth Century Fox
Genre: Drama, Science-Fiction
Official Site:


he Martian would go from the book everyone was talking to the movie everyone was talking about. It stars Matt Damon as a member of a Mars landing team. When a storm hits forcing them to make a hasty exit, he is stranded thought dead. Now, alone on an inhabitable planet, he must figure out a way to survive. Sounds like a laugh-riot, right? Well, it kind of is, and the fact that it won “Best Comedy” at the Golden Globes is not nearly as ludicrous as some detractors would have you think. It is actually really impressive to see a movie that is so aware of comedy’s importance when creating something thrilling and/or compelling. Damon is essentially given a one-man show. He mugs to cameras that are documenting his best efforts to stay alive. Between that sarcastic wit and his MacGuyver-esque cleverness, Damon was never been more charming, and Ridley Scott has provided him a supporting cast (specifically Jeff Daniels and Michael Pena) that is able to reinforce drama by using comedy to inject it with a palpable sense of life, something missing from the colder, more sincere dramas.

The Big Short

Cast: Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Karen Gillan, Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell, Melissa Leo
Studio: Plan B Entertainment
Genre: Drama
Official Site:


If you couldn’t tell writer/director, Adam McKay, has some strong opinions about the American financial collapse from his movie, The Other Guys, this movie is pretty much him overtly venting. His vehicle for venting are stories following three different groups of people who saw the collapse coming. McKay, who is best known for his work with Will Ferrell, brings that same kind of energy to a movie that could have been a serious bore considering the amount of economic know-how it had to unpack. I guess a bathing Margot Robbie could teach me anything.

Studio: The Weinstein Company
Genre: Comedy

Plot: Bad boy chef tries to make a comeback after burning a lot of bridges


Boy, Burnt did not do well critically. It seemed like a passion project of Bradley Cooper’s, and it was a little disheartening to learn that it crashed and burned. However, I saw it anyway, and I kind of dug it. Sure, it didn’t knock it out of the park. Cooper’s Adam Jones is a straight up asshole, and it is sometimes hard to root for him. That’s part of the point though. He is balanced nicely by a take-no-shit Sienna Miller, a healthy rivalry in Matthew Rhys, and a composed true friend in Daniel Bruhl. They are the heroic ones helping Adam Jones get out of his own damn way and live up to his true potential. That kind of struggle can and is compelling. That and I think I really like watching people cook.

Hail, Caesar!

Studio: Universal
Official Site:
Plot: A studio problem solver goes into crisis mode when the superstar lead of his newest tentpole picture goes missing.


A Coen brothers drama almost always works the first time. A Coen brothers comedy usually needs more than one viewing. They are strange. They aren’t full of classic setup-payoff jokes. They are structured more like drama, based on a singular theme or idea, and the story radiates from that moment, buried under fatalistic and sometimes hypocritical circumstance, leaving a lot to unpack. It’s not so easy to unpack a comedy when you are so tuned in to just sitting back and laughing. However, that is the fun of the Coen brothers, except so far I have only seen the movie once...[more]...

Studio: 20th Century Fox
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: A mercenary given super-powers by some weird experiments pledges revenge on those that made him into a freak


Ryan Reynolds has been waiting 11 years for this movie. So have I. Deadpool is my favorite superhero of all time, and Reynolds is Ron-Perlman-as-Hellboy level of awesome casting. His experience with comedy and action movies have made Deadpool into the irreverent R-rated thrillride the subgenre could use. While Deadpool was at once both a satire and gleeful example of the 90s "Xtreme" era of comics, the movie is also both satire and gleeful example of superhero Hollwood blockbusters. It has strong supporting players. TJ Miller, Morena Baccerin, and Ed Skrein all have amazing chemistry with the motor mouth merc and make great strides to ground him in some kind of reality. The action was thrilling and made clever use of its limited budget. The only thing it was missing, and as a fan of the comic this is a big enough deal to knock it from a 9 to an 8/10, the movie practically never explores the emotional toll that the experimentation and torture take on Wade Wilson. His constant and annoying sense of humor was supposed to be an extension of his madness, brought on by the torture, and an emotional shield for the pain, sadness, and inability to make connections he currently suffers. Instead, Reynolds was sarcastic going in and sarcastic coming out.

The Hateful Eight


Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
Written by: Quentin Tarantino
Cast: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Channing Tatum, Zoe Bell, Gene Jones
Studio: The Weinstein Company
Genre: Action, Crime, Independent, Western
Official Site:
Plot: Eight strangers hold up during a blizzard.


I think this is Tarantino's first movie with subtext. There is a lot of things about race relations and the American dream that can be unpacked, especially since the gunslingers aren't just classic Western archetypes, they also symbolize different American POVs. Tarantino is also the most verbose script. Words have always been one of his best weapons, but this time it truly shines above the music and the violence. The cast is outstanding. I was hoping Jennifer Jason Leigh would steal the show, but she ended up being just ok. It was nice to see Michael Madsen actually try. Kurt Russell and Samuel L. Jackson are as amazing as everyone expects them to be. Roth's foppish Brit is a surprising comic element, but Walton Goggins runs away with the movie in my opinion. Tarantino wears his influence on his sleeve. Reservoir Dogs and The Thing, but as Westerns. It is an interesting tense mix, that starts off pretty slow. It gains more and more momentum as it carries on though. The biggest problem I have with it is it has Inglourious Basterds chapter title cards, which don't really matter.With Basterds the movie would change location and protagonists.The chapters kind of helped with that. Hateful Eight only takes place in a few locations (2 to be precise). It is weird for a chapter to signify a change, and you end up in the same setting with the same characters.

Plot: Fueding brothers put their differences aside to compete in doubles tennis


Jeremy Sisto has made bigger waves for his time as a cop on TV then his sense of humor that is generally underrated and David Walton has bounced around sitcoms as love interests. They are both competent enough comedy leads that probably could have made a go of it with a movie with a better story to tell and a few more jokes, but this movie still succeeds well enough for being a pleasant enough viewing experience.

Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Official Site:
Plot: An FBI agent is enlisted to help with a drug trafficking case south of the border.


Denis Villeneuve is a master of tension. I need to look up his French Canadian work because his English work has been just outstanding.His tension is very unique too, because it doesn't exactly put you on the edge of your seat. Instead it takes your nerves and knots them up. You actually sink into your sit as you watch these movies. It doesnt sound very satisfying, but Villeneuve pairs that feelings with the makings of a great action-thriller: exciting action sequences and a compelling cast, including a scary suave Benicio del Toro and a sorrowful Emily Blunt.
