    Each Dawn I Die

    ★★★★½

    James Cagney and George Raft star in EACH DAWN I DIE. Cagney plays Frank Ross, who while trying to report about corruption in the state office, gets framed for manslaughter. Raft plays Stacey, a hardened criminal who with Ross forms an unlikely friendship.

    Both Cagney and Raft are magnificent: Cagney plays a man who slowly goes into despair and Raft is perhaps the one man who may be able to pull him out of it by doing one good thing…

  • Greenland

    Greenland

    ★★★★

    Far better than most other movies of this genre. By keeping it intimate, the tension and the awe are raised exponentially. Much of the world-ending events are left to our imagination, but it gets big when it needs to. The result is that the film feels epic in scale and full of terrifying dread. Roland Emmerich can sit the hell down.

    This is one of Gerard Butler’s best performances. Monica Baccarin is great. We feel for this family and want to see them saved. This is how all disaster movies should be done.

    Shazam!

    ★★★½

    SHAZAM!: SUPERMAN THE MOVIE by way of 1980s Steven Spielberg, with a little Guillermo Del Toro thrown in for good measure. You like all that? It's fantastic.

  • The Abyss

    ★★★★★

    James Cameron's best film. Director's Cut all the way though. Take away a full star for the theatrical release.
