  • 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?

  • Midnight Special

    Midnight Special 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Aug, 2016 2

    Jeff Nichols sure does like being ambiguous. Much like his excellent film Take Shelter, Midnight Special leaves the viewer with a lot of questions. In the wrong hands films like that can be very frustrating. Nichols seems to have a knack for ambiguity though and this film is another nice entry in his growing and unique canon.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Deathgasm

    Deathgasm 2015

    ★★★ Watched 06 Aug, 2016

    Sure Deathgasm is ridiculous, I mean it's called Deathgasm for fuck sake, but I had a helluva lot of fun watching it. As it turns out, metal and a demon apocalypse is pretty fucking entertaining.

    The Ron Says: Rated M for METAL.

  • Amy

    Amy 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Aug, 2016

    I wasn't a huge Amy Winehouse fan (I Liked a few songs), but her amazing talent was undeniable. This excellent documentary chronicles her life and unfortunate death that came far too soon.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Everybody Wants Some

    Everybody Wants Some 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2016

    Let the good times roll

    I'm not a huge fan of Linklater's ode to the 70's Dazed and Confused, so when I heard his latest film Everybody Wants Some!! was a similar type of thing I didn't get too excited. It's set in 1980, a year in which I would have been 3 years old. Much to my surprise I really enjoyed this one. It's got a really fun vibe about it, a great cast of characters, and a fantastic classic rock soundtrack. The story is really simple overall, but I couldn't stop smiling while I watched it.

    The Ron Says: See it.
