Clemency

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 04/02/20

Although it sometimes might look it, "Clemency" really isn't an argument against capital punishment. Think of it more as a morality tale about a prison warden seeking a type of mercy of her own.

Frozen II

Chris Kavan - wrote on 03/27/20

While it's hard to capture the spirit of the original film, as far as sequels go, Frozen II is certainly among the better ones out there. It expands upon the world, story and characters - and still have some excellent music. Plus it's one of those animated films that adults and children alike can enjoy.

Color Out of Space (2019)

Logan D. McCoy - wrote on 03/24/20

I was really into this movie at first, but somewhere around the middle it all started to bend and break down. The acting became very inconsistent and situations became unintentionally funny. As a result, "Color Out of Space" comes within mere inches of being the great art-house B-movie it wants so desperately to be.

Dark Waters (2019)

Indyfreak - wrote on 03/17/20

Infuriating expose on corporate malfeasance in the style of Erin Brockovich or Silkwood. Mark Ruffalo is good as the true life lawyer Robert Billot who led the lawsuit against DuPont for their role in covering up the chemical poisoning of a West Virginia town. Anne Hathaway provides solid support as his wife. Bill Pullman is not in the movie much yet leaves an impression as a wily ally. Special mention to Bill Camp playing one especially outraged client.

Uncut Gems

Nearly Flawless

Uncut Gems is not a pleasant film to watch - but it is quite effective at what it does. The Safdie Brothers don't hold back here, creating a film that is filled with tension and often feels quite claustrophobic but does so while being very loud - with creative use of language, city noise and music to create a cacophony of chaos. None of that would matter, however, if there wasn't a captivating story and characters to carry the load and lucky for us, Adam Sandler has taken this opportunity to …

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 …

The Sonata

Music soothes the soul… Well, not in this flick.

Rose, you do know if this is your father’s final work, it could be a huge sensation.
Yes, well, that much had occurred to me.
And if this score was more important to him than I was, I’d like to know why.

Do you like a dash of classical music? And are you a fan of Gothic horror movies such as “Crimson Peaks” for example? Well, then you’ll certainly enjoy yourself with this movie “The Sonata“. However, if you are looking for a scary and nerve-racking horror, then it would be …

One of the year’s best movies. A thrilling and harrowing war film set in World War One that focuses on two brave soldiers trying to deliver a vital message to the allies. The cinematography and direct is impeccable.,

The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson

Matthew Brady - wrote on 01/25/20

"What a draaag."

I don't think Daniel Farrands deserves human rights at all.

Calling this piece of shit "offensive" may be the easiest thing to say, but it's so true. A complete spit in the face of Nicole Simpson's memory. Truly disgusting.

Terrible acting, poor directing, cheap lighting, and the unnatural writing that feels like it was written by a first time writer in film class.

Please stop making movies.
