    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★

    This Spike Lee directed drama is actually pretty good. What made it even more bizarre is that its taken from a true story and probably embarrassed the racist group to no end. The lead actor in John David Washington was very good as Ron Stallworth and Adam Driver as his Jewish counterpart Flip Zimmerman is also good. The feel and look of the 70's is well created.

    Crazy Rich Asians

    ★★★★

    This movie that is the first of a trilogy of films based on the books by Kevin Kwan. The film has the look of an expensive budget but only cost $30 million which is low by todays standards. It was funny in places and well acted by the major leads. Love the Singapore setting and looking forward to the next instalment. Highly recommended

    ★★★½

    This was one of the better films from this type of hand held camera genre,It was quite well done by Derek Lee and Clif Prowse,these guys probably did not have much of a budget but managed to make a tense horror that for the first half people might think they have been duped but believe me it builds up and then is pretty fast paced,like the locales also,will look for future entries from these two film-makers.

    ★★★★

    I spent this past weekend watching a lot of the Academy nominated films and this Independent film deserves any accolades it gets. This film about life in the projects in Orlando, Florida is great on all levels with the acting performance of Willem Dafoe as the Motel Manager earning him a Best Actor nomination. The little girl Brooklynn Prince is very good considering its her first major film role. Beautifully filmed by Sean Baker whos previous film "Tangerine" I really enjoyed. Highly recommended
