    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★★

    In spite of its title, Sorry to Bother You is indeed out to bother you. But sorry about it? Not hardly.

    It is a weird and bizarre film, yet also insanely brilliant. At times it is even purposefully offensive. But most importantly, Sorry to Bother You is fresh and socially relevant, making it one of the most meaningful films you’ll see this year. I promise.

  • Hotel Transylvania 2

    Hotel Transylvania 2

    ★★½

    The story being told picks up where the first one left off - with Jonathan and Mavis continuing their relationship. Not certain though, that a whole lot of it will make sense to those who missed the first one as it does very little to explain the main conceit - that the hotel was built for monsters so they can stay away from the scary humans.

    Then again, that fact doesn't really matter as its level of humor and storytelling…

    The Revenant

    ★★★★★

    It's long but I was glued to the screen for the entire 154 minutes. Extremely brutal, heartbreakingly beautiful, and one of DiCaprio's best to date. Well deserving of its hard R rating as it's more graphic than any horror movie you'll ever see.

  • McFarland, USA

    McFarland, USA

    ★★★½

    Oddly, Mcfarland, USA works because it is not just a movie about sports. Sports is merely the thread that holds together the heartwarming story of a disadvantaged people stuck in a crappy way of life, and the man who makes a difference in their situation.
