Everything, Everything (2017) Review

Everything, Everything is directed by Stella Meghie and is her first major theatrical release. The film is based on the popular novel by Nicola Yoon and has been adapted by J. Mills Goodloe (The Age of Adaline, The Best of Me). The film stars Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) and Nick Robinson (Jurassic World, The 5th Wave). "A teenager who's spent her whole life confined to her home falls for the boy next door". Is Everything, Everything 2017's answer to "The Fault in Our Stars"? Or is it yet another forgettable YA adaption?

Wind River (2017) Review

Wind River is directed and written by Taylor Sheridan and is the conclusion to his "American Frontier" trilogy (Sicario, Hell or High Water). The film stars Jeremy Renner (The Avengers, Arrival) and Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Godzilla). "An FBI agent teams with a town's veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation". Sicario and Hell or High Water were both critical gems, with the former reaching the top of my year-end 2015 list. Can Wind River follow suit?

Cultjer roundup: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Cultjer roundup: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

I told Gamora how when I was a kid I used to pretend David Hasselhoff was my dad. He's a singer and actor from earth, really famous guy. Yondu didn't have a talking car, but he did have a flying arrow. He didn't have a beautiful voice of an angel, but he did have the whistle of one. Both Yondu and David Hasselhoff went on kick-ass adventures and hooked up with hot women, and fought robots. I guess David Hasselhoff did kinda end up being my dad after all, only it was you, Yondu.

Woody Allen Retrospective: Annie Hall

Woody Allen Retrospective: Annie Hall

Annie Hall was the first film of Woody Allen's that I was ever exposed to. About seven years ago, I began to make my way through the Academy Award Best Picture winners. When I arrived at 1977, I had almost no prior knowledge of Woody Allen, as I had not started the deep dive into the pool of cinema I now swim in, so I came into the film with few expectations. I was absolutely blown away by Annie Hall, the artistry achieved in such a heartbreaking film completely floored me. I knew someday I would make a point to see everything else Woody Allen had made because that's how fast a project "happens" for me. It took longer than I would have liked, but I finally embarked on that retrospective project in July of this year. I had seen 11 of Woody Allen's films at the beginning of the project and discovered so many new favorites. Annie Hall was the only one of the 11 I rewatched, curious to see if it would remain at the top of my throne of Woody Allen's filmography. Annie Hall is still my favorite Woody Allen film, and one of my best-loved films of all time. It remains a rewatchable favorite, a film filled with personal touches and experimentation, a film that I am eternally grateful for.

"Leap!" Review

Often, while I'm watching a film that isn't going so well, I can't help but root for things to get better. I felt that way during most of "Leap!", the French-Canadian animated film originally released last year under the title "Ballerina". The Weinstein Co. is distributing the English-language version in the U.S. which includes, not only the new title and a new voice cast, but a modern soundtrack.

Dolph Lundgren is training for 'Creed 2'

Do not underestimate old man strength. — Back in July, Stallone kicked off a series of Instagram posts teasing plans for "Creed 2". Yet it wasn't news of the sequel that came as the tease, but rather plans for Stallone's desire to see Rocky IV nemesis, Ivan Drago's return to the series.

Una
review

Una

How much hate should we harbour for the paedophile Una presents to us? That’s the only feeling that needs calibrating as we contextualize the vice hovering above the two central characters in this film by first-time director Benedict Andrews. The strong performances on show may have you dithering for a minute – second chances right. But by the time the resolution comes around, questions and suspicions arise to drown out what the uncomfortable empathy surfaces.
