THE LAST WORD on ‘A Monster Calls’

a monster callsI’m not actually sure what angle to take on ‘A Monster Calls’. I’m not familiar with the award-winning children’s book it’s based on, so I can’t really come at it from that angle, although the animation and special effects, are impressive and seem special at moments. I’m certainly not gonna pan the movie outright, it’s too well-done for that, but I’ve just seen too many movies beforehand.

CANON OF FILM: ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ (1974)

Murder On the Orient ExpressThis is one of the few endings to these things that’s still exciting to watch on multiple viewings and if I tell you why, I’d be giving something away, so just trust me on this, and, and I’m positive that when Kenneth Branagh’s new remake comes out next week–the fourth filmed remake of the movie in my lifetime by my count of calculations, including two TV movies, and a Japanese remake last year– it will live up to this standard.

THE LAST WORD on ‘Passengers’

passengersEvery negative, and most positive reviews I see, seem to be focusing in on the romance aspect of the movie, as though this is some, sprawling romantic epic, colliding with an incredible-looking stylized sci-fi film. It looks like ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ but it feels like ‘Titanic’, or tries to kinda thing. As somebody who’s never thought ‘Titanic’ was any good to begin with, I didn’t see the romance like that at all.

George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” Goes for Dark Laughs with Faint Success

Suburbicon is an especially savage Coen Brothers yarn and one that would have been more of a success under a different director, even directed by the men themselves. That comment isn’t meant to slander Mr. Clooney’s abilities as a filmmaker, but there come a handful of scenes where it feels he’s too timid to truly embrace its misanthropic ideology.

A “Babysitter” McG Tries With

Of all the “second tier” Netflix acquisitions this year, “The Babysitter” is arguably the best, thanks to its lean running time of 85 minutes, the chemistry between its two leads and some ghoulishly outlandish death scenes that could earn a deserved place in the pantheon of horror films. Beyond that, it’s not really something that hasn’t been done before and stronger.
