Paradise; Lost


Sean Baker presents a bright, bubbly version of Florida as seen through the eyes of children, but beneath this candy-coated surface a dark reality hides as the adults, some of whom seem more childish than the kids around them, struggle to maintain a life and family.

Our main character is six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince), who is staying at the ironically-named Magic Kingdom motel with her mother, Halley (Bria Vinaite). She hangs out with Scooty and Dicky (Christopher Rivera and Aiden Ma...

A well-crafted, visually-stunning follow-up to what many consider one of, if not the greatest, sci-fi films of all time. That's a hard act to follow, but Denis Villeneuve obviously has great respect for the original, and it shows. A film that is both haunting and epic in its scale. The pacing is a bit slow and some big names get little more than a cameo (I wanted more Lennie James!), but, overall, this thinking-man's sci-fi is a worthy followup.

A movie that wants to be all kind of things




“The only thing Suburbicon is missing is you.
Isn’t it time for your new start?
Come home to Suburbicon.”

It doesn’t happen often, but now I had a feeling I didn’t really understand what I’d watched. Not that “Suburbicon” was a complicated, incomprehensible film. But I didn’t know what the initial intention was of the filmmakers? Was it meant to bring a socially critical message? Or was it a satirical view of an American society during the 50s with its tidy, decent neighborhoods and go...

"Blade Runner 2049"


Blade runner K is tasked with finding and retiring a fellow replicant, but during the course of his investigation he uncovers a plot to hide a secret that could potentially undermine the entire fabric of their society.

The sequel to Blade Runner opened to universal critical acclaim but was spectacularly unsuccessful at the American box office and it's easy to see why. The film has a very old school quality that is deliberate in its pacing, sparing with its editing and has a respect for the i...

It's nice to see three good actors like Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, and Laurence Fishburne star in a film together. It's too bad that LAST FLAT FLYING is not as good as they are, though it does try.

Just a mediocre horror suitable for teen girls


“I’m totally having deja vu right now.
Oh, I have it all the time.
It’s supposed to mean like someone’s thinking about you while they’re masturbating.
I have it at least five times a day.”

You can’t really say “Happy death day” is original. You’ll immediately think of films as “Groundhog day” and recently “Before I fall” when watching this time loop/slasher movie. The same principle with one crucial difference. The person trapped in an apparently infinite time loop is being murdered each ...

Cage going ape crazy once more. And I loved it.




“I mean, I used to be Brent…
and you used to be Kendall…
and now we’re just…
Mom and Dad.”

I’m sure some parents will experience it in their life. The moment you get a bit tired of your offspring. That you would love to put them on a rocket and shoot them to the moon, so that you get a little bit of time and space. Even though your love for your children is unconditional and sincere. This moment will only last a few seconds with normal parents before they look back at their kids lovin...

I was impressed by the overall look




“The year is 2047.
A century of technological revolution.
The revolution did happen, just not really the way people thought it would.”

Apparently there’s one thing that’ll never change, according to the movie “Virtual Revolution” which takes place in the near future.. And that’s the attitude of the political establishment towards the citizens. I concluded that after Dina said the following: “If the politicians want to keep things the way they are, it’s because they benefit from it“. Th...

A admirable effort to recapture the suspense of earlier Agatha Christie adaptations. The film is nearly crippled by its camerawork which is more suitable for an ITV miniseries. The twists and turns do keep the viewer engaged. It's interesting than some recent Christie films because the emphasis on female characters. Glenn Close, Gillian Anderson, and Christina Hendricks all give good performances. The conclusion does feel rushed though to get to the final twist.

True story based courtroom drama that also serves as a biographical film for Thurgood Marshall. Once again, Chadwick Boseman knocks it out of the park as another historical figure, same as Jackie Robinson and James Brown. Josh Gad provides solid support as his fellow attorney and lone ally for a difficult case.
