And that it’s because of him there’s gotta be a new goddamn version of A Christmas Carol every freakin’ year. But hold on, that’s because it really was quite good. Timeless, even. So here we go with the META Continue Reading...

In this new film from the writer/director of Nightcrawler, Denzel Washington plays a lawyer. Not the slick and fancy, expensive suit kind. The kind that that other lawyer has working for him doing all the research work. The kind who hasn’t bought even a new suit in 30 years. The kind with heart, drive, and unshakable belief in doing what’s Continue Reading...

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...

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...

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...
