Endearing but nonsensical stranger in a strange land tale. Whilst the plot evaporates as soon as you look at it, the evocative visuals and, for the time, excellent special FX still manage to hold your attention. Ignore the script and you’ll be fine.
If a shaky camera, lots of night vision, constant cries of, “What the hell was that!?” and people being dragged away into the dark are your thing, then you might like this film. If you don’t, there’s not much else to hold your attention here. 😦
Period drama haunting nonsense that somehow stars Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek. Badly told and directed, this film undoes itself at every turn, with a story line that makes no sense on any level. Avoid.
Small town crime drama with a decent premise that is not smart enough to invert expectations with its rather predictable ending. Even though told backwards and home to a couple of decent moments, this is formulaic at best. 😐
Based on real life events in Afghanistan, this anti war movie is at times funny, but a misjudged last third weakens the overall package. The ensemble cast is excellent, but in trying to be too earnest, it loses its bite somewhat.
Wayward son of a mobster trope leads to Liam Neeson being Liam Neeson. Run of the mill actioner that suffers from too much direction as the camera swoops and roves over New York to try and gloss over the lack of plot. 😐
Enjoyable and tense space based creature feature. One part Alien, one part Gravity, this is a cut above most recent horror films and delivers some decent set pieces, and at a little over 100 minutes, doesn’t outstay its welcome. 🙂
