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

Live by Night

Ben Affleck has proven himself to be both an eclectic actor and a riveting filmmaker over the years. He’s directed brilliant dramas like “Gone Baby Gone,” “The Town,” and “Argo,” but his next directing/acting job “Live by Night” is a… Read More ›

Hell or High Water

It’s about damn time I get a brilliant Indie movie this summer. “Hell or High Water” is the kind that is thrilling, well-acted, and isn’t convoluting in its narrative. Written by Taylor Sheridan (“Sicario”) and directed by David Mackenzie (“Starred… Read More ›
