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]...

Glinda at 06:44 PM Jun 23

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
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.

Band of Robbers


Directed by: Adam Nee
Written by: Aaron Nee
Cast: Melissa Benoist, Kyle Gallner, Adam Nee, Matthew Gubler, Hannibal Buress, Daniel Mora, Eric Olsen, Stephen Lang
Studio: Gravitas Ventures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, existing in a modern time, search for buried treasure.


This movie was a quite the surprise. I know very little about Huck and Finn, but it doesn't feel enslaved to those stories. It never feels like it is stretching to make modern parallels. Instead it expertly juggles noir thrills and comic adventure in such a way that one doesn't sacrifice the other. It still has some rough amateur edges, but there was a lot of promise for these up and coming filmmakers. And a really memorable villain turn for Stephen Lang.

Captain America: Civil War


Directed by: Anthony Russo
Written by: Anthony Russo
Cast: Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Daniel Bruhl, Martin Freeman, Tom Holland, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Don Cheadle, Frank Grillo, William Hurt, Elizabeth Olsen, Emily VanCamp
Studio: Marvel Studios
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book
Official Site:
Plot: When Captain America and Iron Man reach an impasse over legislation that would effect The Avengers, Cap and his allies risk arrest to bring in the Winter Soldier on their own terms.


Kevin Feige and the Russo brothers took an interesting but undercooked comic crossover and turned it into the universe defining story it always should have been. Rather than resorting to character assassinations to move the blocks around, the characters are pivoted by circumstance into their roles, offering opportunities to do the kind of acting you don't normally see in superhero flicks, especially for Downey. It is action packed and in a lot of ways stands on its own, but it also has the momentum of a bigger universe filtering through it. Introducing Ant-Man to the bigger world. Re-introducing Spider-Man to his Marvel home. Debuting Black Panther for a whole new audience. It spins so many plates, the most impressive being how it shifts that franchise momentum. By addressing its size (the global consequences that keep getting bigger) Civil War uses the intimacy and nuance of its cast's chemistry to send it down what could be darker and more personal territory.

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]...

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

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.

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.
