  • The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter

    The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter

    ★★½

    A rare disappointment from director and co-writer Jody Hill, Netflix's The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter is a film that definitely has its moments -- Josh Brolin and Danny McBride are both excellent as they always are -- but repeatedly suffers from -- besides Montana Jordan's irritating son character -- the fact it has little idea of what it really wants to be, thus concepts and themes that could be interesting to explore are never fully realized and just come off as wasted potential.

  • Sherlock Gnomes

    Sherlock Gnomes

    ½

    The unnecessary -- and far worse -- sequel to a mediocre and easily forgettable animated take on the classic Romeo & Juliet story, Sherlock Gnomes wastes an excellent cast -- minus abusive bastard Johnny Depp who once again seems to care so little about acting these days that he has no trouble embarrassing himself on the silver screen in front of millions across the globe -- on an aggressively annoying, witless endurance test of a film that's guaranteed to irritate the living daylights out of you.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★½

    With its intense and exciting action sequences, excellent performances (with the exception of a laughable turn from Jesse Eisenberg), and dazzling visual spectacle being let down by an overstuffed and incoherent script that's filled to the brim with poorly written characters and needlessly convoluted plotting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tries to be another Batman reboot, a Man of Steel sequel, and a Justice League set-up all at once with results that are nothing short of depressing to watch.…

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
