If you’re looking for cinema gore and white knuckle suspense, Green Room will be exactly what you want in a movie. Just don’t expect anything more.
The Huntsman: Winter’s War is definitely better than Snow White and the Huntsman, but that’s not saying much.
Cheadle may stumble as a director, but luckily he has himself to thank for making Miles Ahead watchable due to his strong work as the erratic Miles Davis.
Elvis & Nixon is only a few days in the life of these two popular figures, but the film is an oddball tale full of charm.
The villains may make their presence known in The Jungle Book, but the star of the film is Bill Murray who carries the film on his big bear back.
Barbershop: The Next Cut is not perfect, but it has some funny and meaningful moments leading up to its predictable ending.
Hardcore Henry is pure escapism with the audience becoming the title character as you see what Henry sees as he pummels his enemies trying to find out the truth about what happened to him.
The cast of relative unknowns shine in Everybody Wants Some!! and shows the random fun that can happen in college. For a film about nothing, there’s definitely something special about it.
A little mystery is fine, but Midnight Special is missing the closure that would have made it a complete film.
You will repesct the performances of Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper and newcomer Judah Lewis, but Demolition is a hard movie to enjoy despite being unable to take your eyes off the sad story on-screen.
