The Last Valley

Indyfreak - wrote on 02/21/20

A thoughtful and contemplative historical drama anchored by two great lead performances.
Michael Caine and Omar Sharif play two medieval soldiers, one a cynic and the other an idealist, whose band stumble upon a quiet valley untouched by war. The pair work together to keep the peace between the suspicious villagers and their warlike companions.
The script is nuanced enough to offer a perspective on situation from most of the characters. Granted there are one dimensional villains that must …

The Believer (2002)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 02/21/20

Led by an excellent early performance by Ryan Gosling, "The Believer" is a compelling but also very unfocused portrait of self-hatred and self-deception

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

Matthew Brady - wrote on 02/21/20

You can tell straight away it's a Zack Snyder movie, and I'm not saying that in a bad way.

In terms of a family movie, it's more mature than I expected. Beautiful visuals with some stunning looking shots that any lover of cinematography will drool over. Also a set of color characters that added to the captivating experience.

While I had my problems with Snyder in the past, but I still admire the man as a filmmaker and as a person.

Midway (2019)

Shock and Awe-Inspiring

I know when I think of Roland Emmerich, I think of big, bombastic world-ending, special-effects laden films. Explosions. Aliens. Climate change. And, yes, Emmerich has done war before - but I'm not going to lie, I was not a fan of The Patriot. Thus, going into Midway, I was expecting something along the lines of Pearl Harbor (great effects, weak story) as opposed to, say, Saving Private Ryan (great effects, better story). Yet Midway managed to exceed my expectations - it still has Emmerich's …

Uncut Gems

Sandler nails it in this nerve-wracking thriller



That’s a million dollar opal you are holding.
Straight from the Ethiopian Jewish tribe.

Are you in the middle of a nasty divorce? Or are you at home on sick leave because of burnout due to your stressful job that demands too much from you? Or are those two revolting teenagers at home, who go through puberty right now, making you so much upset that you almost have no fingernails anymore? Good advice! Ignore this movie and look for another soothing movie. Because “Uncut Gems” will …

Marriage Story (2019)

Nolane - wrote on 02/09/20

Overrated, slow and dull. A few humorous moments, and an excellent performance from Scarlett Johansson do little to relive the general tedium. Adam Driver gives a wooden performance, and his emotional scenes feel forced. Laura Dern gives the same performance she always gives. If you want to learn in excruciating detail what it’s like to get divorced you will love this movie. Otherwise stay clear.

"Logan" by Yojimbo

It’s 2029. The mutants are gone. Logan and Charles Xavier are living in hiding in Mexico, struggling to survive while their powers become increasingly unreliable and dangerous.

Logan is a different kind of superhero movie to the type we have become accustomed to; there are no epic space battles, no teams of brashly coloured men and women in tights flying around shooting lightning bolts or tossing cars around like they are toys while making quips; for the most part, it’s a battered and …

War Horse

Bore Horse.
I shut this one off 40 minutes in. The film plays like a lazy river drifting from one mundane plot point to the next. I was trying to hold out for something interesting. The film never really got going. The comedic elements that I think were meant to try and buoy this fell flat. BADLY.
When a movie notes Stephen Spielberg with a producer credit I'm firmly in the belief it's no longer a good film. The 2010's are making this painfully clear.
