<b>Movie Review:</b> Arrival

Movie Review: Arrival

Like the best science fiction Arrival disguises its true intentions, its greater themes and deeper conversation, under images of spaceships and aliens and that thing that lives in our brains that makes us look up and wonder
<b>Movie Review:</b> The Confirmation

Movie Review: The Confirmation

The Confirmation is a small film, one that snuck into a few theatres and onto streaming services with little noise. It needs to be seen
<b>Movie Review:</b> Doctor Strange

Movie Review: Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is a singular experience. Hallucinatory and yet somehow grounded, serious and at times quite funny, it is a film of paradoxes

Movie Review: The Accountant

The Accountant feels like it's based on a series of pulp books that came out when book store shelves were filled with Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan novels. That it is completely original only adds to the fun.
<b>Movie Review:</b> The Magnificent Seven

Movie Review: The Magnificent Seven

For all of its faults and failings, The Magnificent Seven is just so much damned fun. And there haven't been a whole lot of just fun Westerns in a quite a while.
<b>Movie Review:</b> Snowden

<b>Movie review:</b> Sausage Party

Movie review: Sausage Party

Sausage Party is a Disney film, if old Walt had smoked a bowl with his animators. A film of contradictions and paradoxes, it is filled with moments of Pixar-ish emotional realism and questions of great import
<b>Movie Review:</b> Suicide Squad

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

<b>Movie Review:</b> Jason Bourne

Movie Review: Jason Bourne

This isn't a reboot or anything like that, it's more like the first volume in the next set of adventures featuring Jason Bourne
