    ★½

    Ok, in a horror movie you should explain enough so that audiences aren’t lost, but not so much that you the terror dissipates. This somehow manages to fail in both ways simultaneously. I wanted to extricate myself  from this movie at about the same time Sarah Paulson did.

    Wonder who the next director will be to take the story from The Happening and run with it. Third time’s the charm, right?

    ★★★½

    Not edited well enough to be effective horror, nor insightful enough to be biting commentary. But damn did I enjoy myself! Just proves that old adage, “If Jake Gyllenhaal is having fun, you’re gonna have a good time”

    McCabe & Mrs. Miller

    ★★★★

    Despite the brashness, Warren Beatty and Julie Christie do a wonderful job of creating an opacity to the title characters. Do we really know by the end of the film who they are? Was McCabe really a famous gunslinger? What sort of future does Mrs Miller envision for herself (if any)? But they’ve created a community in the process of running from the past, an awkward but functional one that can run independently from them. Was that their plan all along under the guise of self interest...?

    Beautiful winter cinematography, reminded me a bit of “Il Grand Silencio”

    ★★★★½

    This movie is pretty dumb, and I loved it. As of this writing, there may still be a chance left for you to see it in theaters - you most definitely should. Rarely do I hear an audience audibly respond to action sequences, but everyone was on board to watch Tom Cruise almost kill himself several times over. Henry Cavill’s mustache deserves an Oscar.
