Summerland is the type of motion picture that gives me hope things are going to turn out all right, not just for the characters living inside this tale, but in the here and now for all of us as well.
Relic is a singularly magnetic motion picture that burrows under the skin leaving a lasting scar, the hushed uncertainty of the devastation left behind in its wake impossible to forget.
Homewrecker is one heck of an entertaining foray into psychologic discombobulation, everything building to a shockingly gruesome climax I honestly didn’t see coming.
The Outpost wrecked me, and when it was over I was so exhausted and had gone through so many tissues I needed to slap a little water in my face to regain my composure.
“This story was about regular dudes. Guys who are not necessarily career military…I thought that was very interesting. I’m making a movie about people you don’t make movies about. That’s exciting.”
– Rod Lurie
Beats is more than a visual or musical showcase, it’s a character-driven one as well, the events of this crazy night back in 1994 not nearly as divorced from today’s protest-charged reality as casual viewers might initially surmise.
Yet it is just as equally misguided, and for all its good intentions, star power and expert cinematic craftsmanship, Irresistible is a milquetoast political satire I refuse to endorse.
Sometimes Always Never becomes stealthily unforgettable, this peculiar story an intimately human tale of family (and Scrabble!) that plays itself out like a winsome daydream tenderly coupled in the arms of a long-lost love.
Infamous a mediocre movie that deserves to fade into oblivion as if it never existed in the first place, the fewer followers it ends up having the more likely that outcome is going to be.
