Nicholas Hoult plays famed writer J.D. Salinger in this biopic that features Kevin Spacey as his mentor, Zoey Deutch as his young love, Sarah Paulson as his loyal agent, Victor Garber as his dismissive father, and Dr Venture as…I don’t know, he’s in there somewhere. Ok, so full admission: I (Chris) didn’t see this one but I DID send George, Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: mother!

First off, this isn’t a Hunger Games movie. I know, I know, it’s America’s new sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence, in the lead, but this is a film…not for everybody. That’s exactly what you should expect from a director like Darren Aronofsky. His new film features Lawrence as a submissive wife to writer’s-blocked poet Javier Bardem. They live in a big house Continue Reading...

IT is here. IT is what you have been waiting for. IT is the IT movie of the…erm…post-summer. IT is where IT’S at. I could go on like this all day and keep annoying all of you but the upshot is, we loved the hell out of this new adaptation of Stephen King’s coulrophobic¬†novel. Listen to Chris, Patience, Phil, Beau, Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: Twin Peaks Episodes 14-15

Peaksians rejoice! The answers are finally arriving. I mean, in that Lynchy way. And we love it. We especially loved these last two episodes and it makes for a fitful discussion of what we’ve learned and what appears about to happen as we head into the final stretch. The outro song is “Bad Juju” from our own Betty’s album of Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: Logan Lucky

Getting so you can’t trust anyone in Hollywood who says they’re ‘retired’ anymore. Steven Soderberg only took a five year break from directing films after his announcement before he came back but it seems like we’re all happy about it regardless. His latest, Logan Lucky, is a southern-boys heist comedy film starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Daniel Craig Continue Reading...

NYC has often been visualized as a fantasy land, a nightmarish landscape, or even hell itself, and the film Good Time definitely puts the city into the ‘almost a character in the film itself’ category. Robert Pattinson (yes, that one) has a brother who is mentally handicapped but he refuses to admit there’s anything wrong with him. When he makes Continue Reading...

Highly Suspect Reviews: Ingrid Goes West

0 Submitted by on Thu, 17 August 2017, 10:59
Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) is a bit on the obsessive side. To put it mildly. She’s seriously into fantasizing about having a friendship with an Instagram influencer (Elizabeth Olsen) who lives on the other side of the country. So she packs up and moves out there to insinuate herself into her life and then, of course, everything will be wonderful when Continue Reading...
