Review in Brief: John Wick Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019)

I’ve never been a JOHN WICK stan (am I using that right?). I like the films just fine – the first considerably more than the second – but I don’t quite see them as the action art form that some … Continue reading

Review: Joker (2019)

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the festival circuit that JOKER was somehow profound. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad. It’s fine. But if it wasn’t for Joaquin Phoenix’s pained, spellbinding lead performance there’d be very … Continue reading

Review: Ready or Not (2019)

READY OR NOT is a good really time at the movies. No, it’s not revelatory or particularly groundbreaking or the next big thing, it’s just good and a lot of fun. As tradition dictates, any new member of the wealthy … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Arctic (2018/19)

What kind of a madman would star in both movies called POLAR and ARCTIC in the same year? A Mads-man, that’s who (excuse the pun, or don’t, I don’t care). Despite the etymologically similar titles they couldn’t be more different … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Triple Frontier (2019)

TRIPLE FRONTIER boasts some of the hottest talent around, plus Ben Affleck who really needs a hit. It sort-of ends up being the kind of thriller SICARIO 2 should have been. It’s got momentum, a beautifully hostile environment and a … Continue reading

Review: Us (2019)

Well that’s 2 for 2 for Jordan Peele. He’s become a vibrant, distinctive and essential American filmmaking voice in what seems like no time at all, and while US can be compared to GET OUT on certain thematic levels, it’s … Continue reading

Review: No Country for Old Men (2007)

The Coen Brothers are two of the most distinctively voiced American filmmakers working today. Nobody else creates bleak mediations on existence or bittersweet morality tales quite like them at the top of their game. Their only Best Picture Academy Award … Continue reading

Review in Brief: Polar (2019)

What if JOHN WICK (the movie, not the character) hated you? That’s POLAR. There’s no killer’s code in this tale of hitmen (and women) offing each other and humanity is shown to be pretty much done for on a moral … Continue reading

Review: Searching (2018)

If I hadn’t already written my year end list, this would have shaken things up. SEARCHING is a game-changer, no question. How it was put together on a technical level, the final presentation and the revolutionary ways that information is … Continue reading
