Drama

A United Kingdom

I liked both movies, but I felt “A United Kingdom” was more challenging than “Loving.” Both these movies involve mixed marriages at the worst possible time periods. This one, set in 1947, involves the first Botswana President and a white… Read More ›

Gold

Here is “Gold,” another money-obsessed drama, which may have the potential to rank with Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but atlas, becomes a dull, generic bio. It starts off well with a would-be businessman named Kenny Wells (Matthew… Read More ›

The Founder

Unless Oscars contenders get expanded, it is very uncommon for great movies to pop up in January, and “The Founder” indicates that 2017 could be a great year for movies. I hate McDonald’s, but “I’m Loving” this movie for its… Read More ›

Split

I rarely sit through horror movies nowadays (which is why I chose to skip “The Bye Bye Man” and “Underworld: Awakening”), but M. Night Shyamalan’s next thriller “Split” is one I’m curious to understand. It’s premise: a man with multiple… Read More ›

Hacksaw Ridge

As far I know, most people would probably avoid “Hacksaw Ridge,” Mel Gibson’s first directing film in years, because of how the actor has gone downhill. His last two acting jobs, “Machete Kills” and “The Expendables III,” were both garbage…. Read More ›

Fences

As I was watching “Fences,” I felt like I was watching a play. In fact, it is based on a Broadway play by August Wilson, who also wrote the film’s screenplay. You can tell by the dialogue, the long conversations,… Read More ›

Lion

“Lion,” the new biography starring Dev Patel, possesses a certain kind of magic that “Slumdog Millionaire” possessed in his break-out role. It’s a step behind that film, but its premise of the movie is so intriguing, it has a good reason… Read More ›

Moonlight

The world is filled with homophobia, and “Moonlight” deals with the bullying, shyness, and struggles of that issue. Told from an African-American perspective, the movie leaves you feeling emotional about the main character and the types of people he deals… Read More ›

Arrival

After my viewing of “Arrival,” I have a message to the people behind some of the worst Sci-Fi movies of the new decade (Roland Emmerich-creator of “Independence Day: Resurgence”-and the Wachowskis-creators of “Jupiter Ascending”): “Now that’s a Sci-Fi movie.” “Arrival”… Read More ›

Hidden Figures

“Hidden Figures” is the untold true story of three African American women, who worked in the mathematics department at NASA, and used “The Right Stuff” to help them launch a man in space. These women consist of mathematician Katherine Johnson,… Read More ›
