    Lean on Pete

    ★★★★

    When you see a well-made film, a story that has meaning, you don’t forget about it quickly after leaving the theater. You think about it for days, contemplating the decisions that were made to create it. Lean On Pete is one such film.

    Lean On Pete is simply told and is earnest in its approach. This touching story of extraordinary circumstances may well be one of the best films of the year, so far.

  • Bad Samaritan

    Bad Samaritan

    ★★★

    Bad Samaritan is a film which imperfectly thrills audiences, but it is still much better than recent releases of the horror/thriller genre, such as Winchester and Insidious: The Last Key. Robert Sheehan’s performance is convincing and he does a good job of pulling the audience to his side. However, it is David Tennant who steals the show with his role. Tennant, as Erendreich, is ruthless and crazy-eyed. He keeps viewers on edge, as they try to figure out what he’s doing and, most importantly, what he could do next.

    Peter Rabbit

    ★★★½

    Peter Rabbit is a story of personal responsibility and accountability. It teaches the importance of understanding others, even when they may be different or have a different worldview. It is a fun, charming and visually appealing film ​and one that is appropriate for any child and family. The film is not just for children, as there are references made throughout that go right over their heads and are best understood by the adults in the audience.
