  • The Wailing

    The Wailing 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2016

    I've mentioned in previous reviews that South Korea is my second favorite country for cinema after the U.S. Hong-jin Na's The Wailing is another in a long list of excellent films from the country. Many of you are probably familiar with what is seemingly their go to genre revenge, but The Wailing is no revenge flick. It's a mystery/thriller with a supernatural twist that's atmospheric and well paced for it's 156 minute runtime.

    The Ron Says: Must see.

  • Borrowed Time

    Borrowed Time 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Oct, 2016

    Co-directos Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou Lhadj made this animated short over 5 years in their spare time. It's pretty damn good for side work.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • 13th

    13th 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Oct, 2016

    Considering the current political climate this doc is a must see. Hell! It's a must see regardless. Just be prepared to get pissed if you've previously been ignorant to it's subject matter.

    The Ron Says: 13th should be mandatory viewing.

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Oct, 2016

    Shane Black, who has made a career out of writng and directing buddy action comedies delivers what he's known for. Luckily he's pretty good at it and the buddies (Gosling and Crowe) here have excellent chemistry.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • King Jack

    King Jack 2015

    ★★★ Watched 27 Sep, 2016

    The Ron Says: Felix Thompson's King Jack is an above average coming-of-age drama with a solid lead performance by it's young star Charlie Plummer.

  • The Fear of 13

    The Fear of 13 2015

    ★★★ Watched 17 Sep, 2016

    The stranger than fiction tale of convicted murderer Nick Yarris' life told by Yarris himself is a compelling watch. Mainly because Yarris is very good at telling it.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Keanu

    Keanu 2016

    ★★★ Watched 08 Sep, 2016

    Keanu starring Key & Peele is really fucking stupid, but what can I say, the dumb shit made me laugh.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation

    Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation 2015

    ★★½ Watched 04 Sep, 2016 2

    Is it just me, or does it feel like if you've seen one Mission Impossible film you've seen them all? I have seen them all, and I swear the plot and action sequences are interchangeable. Maybe i'm just tired of watching the 5'7" 50 plus Tom Cruise run, jump, and beat people up. That's the mission that seems impossible.

    The Ron Says: Unless you're really into this franchise skip it.

  • In Memorium

    In Memorium 2005

    ★★½ Watched 03 Sep, 2016

    Found footage before that was a thing. Your typical scary sounds and images CAUGHT ON CAMERA!

    The Ron Says: Skip it.

  • The Danish Girl

    The Danish Girl 2015

    ★★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2016

    That Eddie Redmayne fellow sure can act. Playing Stephen Hawking to near perfection then doing the same as a transgender pioneer is pretty damn impressive. I'd just like to see him in something where the overall film is on par with his performance.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • He Never Died

    He Never Died 2015

    ★★ Watched 20 Aug, 2016

    The whole time I was watching He Never Died, I kept thinking this could be a lot better. There's definitely things to like about it, just nowhere near enough.

    The Ron Says: Skip it.

  • The Lobster

    The Lobster 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2016

    Well that was strange. In a good way? I think.

    The Ron Says: See it?
