    The Hurricane Heist

    ★★

    To laugh at oneself comes with the territory here but The Hurricane Heist's straight-to-DVD vibe leaves viewers in permanent limbo, unsure whether to laugh or cry in the face of such ineptitude while relishing the stark entertainment value of the film’s ridiculously overplayed tornado robbery.

    Ghost Stories

    ★★

    A marketing success from Lionsgate yet one with the potential to become a notable big screen disappointment, Ghost Stories reveres its own concept, the essence of which stays hidden mostly until the final act where a shift in perspective takes the film in unforeseen directions. While undoubtedly bolstered by its final moments, the movie suffers heavily as a bloated scare flick, giving us very little to write home about for the majority of its runtime as clichéd bumps and jumps send viewers to sleep before Dyson and Nyman truly tuck into the meat of their subject matter.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    A multidimensional masterwork of epic proportions, crossing the boundaries of space and time with a universal tale of discovery during moments of complete uncertainty. Strong-minded but tender in its depiction of solitude, time travel, and the power unconditional love, Interstellar is a cinematic page-turner and it’s assembled with religious ambition by Christopher Nolan whose transcendent take on Sci-Fi opens the door to a discussion worth having about the importance of family during times of crisis.

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★

    Revenge is a dish best served in hardback and Nocturnal Animals couldn’t be more audacious in its exploration of literary malevolence. In a time where subtweeting and unfriending have become the standard way to send a message about a failed relationship, a movie that dedicates an entire novel to the person who ruined an author’s life feels like a pretty contemptuous one.
