Highly Suspect Reviews: Last Flag Flying

Richard Linklater has kinda mastered the road trip deep conversations thing. At least now with the release of his (kinda, sorta, not really) sequel to 1973’s The Last Detail. Bryan Cranston, Steve Carrell, and Lawrence Fishburne play old Vietnam war buddies who are uncomfortably reunited when Carrell asks them to join him for a trip to the funeral of his son Continue Reading...

Kenneth Branagh takes on this new adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic as director and detective as he plays the mustachioed Hercule Poirot trying to solve a murder mystery on a train. Of course, this being what it is, traditionally you gotta have a huge cast and here we’ve got Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, Judi Dench, Olivia Colman, Continue Reading...

The kids are back together again fighting against the terrors of the Upside-Down and all of America (or at least that’s how it looked from MY facebook feed) was watching. So what did our crew think of it? This long-form season review (full spoilers) features Chris, Johnny Neill, Marco, Kim, and Beau. Chaos is assured....

Highly Suspect Reviews: Thor: Ragnarok

The third time is clearly the charm as director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) takes over the reins of Thor’s chariot in this crazy, colorful film that from its opening frames makes no mistake that it’s a comedy. Co-starring Heimdall, Hulk and Loki (yay!) and introducing Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, and Cate Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: The Killing of a Sacred Deer

You get so excited to talk about a movie sometimes and then you hit record and you’re like, “How the hell do I get across what this film made me feel like?” The Killing of a Sacred Deer is one of those films…entrancing, complex, difficult to summarize. Basically, Colin Farrell plays a surgeon with a God complex who is hanging Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: Goodbye Christopher Robin

Someone in Hollywood has clearly decided that biopics about beloved children’s storybook writers are a cash cow. This time we take a look at the creator of Winnie the Pooh (played by Domhnall Gleeson), his often-absentee wife (Margot Robbie) and the precocious child of theirs that was the basis for the Christopher Robin character from the books. Taking a darker turn Continue Reading...

Well, here it is. Our review for what, despite the massive pedigree that would seem to spell out “good movie”, is one of the worst movies we’ve seen this year. Michael Fassbender plays a broken police detective in Norway who is chasing a mysterious ‘snowman’ killer. And lots of other irrelevant stuff happens, including, for some reason, a conspicuously ADRed Continue Reading...

Liam Neeson takes a break from chasing down bad guys in the action movie senses to chase down bad guys in the Watergate break-ins sense and, in fact, the President of the United States, in this biopic about the guy who turned out to be the confidential informant to the Washington Post (among other news outlets) whose information led to Nixon Continue Reading...

Are you familiar with the story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots? A fire crew of badasses in Arizona? No? Ok, don’t look them up. You’ll thank me later. Watch this movie about their story without that background information. Here, Josh Brolin plays the leader of this crew of manly men who is married to Jennifer Connelly. His boss is Jeff Continue Reading...
