    Annihilation

    ★★½

    Bowdlerization of the book into a mediocre monster movie.

    ★★★★

    Joan Blondell and Glenda Farrell as gold-digging manicurists. All I want out of a movie.

    No Escape

    ★★★

    It turns out there was an escape. This is what I call the ol' switcheroo.

    This is a decent "save the white people from the other people" movie, but on the Brosnan scale I give it five out of five Brosnans. Some excellent Brosnan-ing here.

  • Young Mr. Lincoln

    Young Mr. Lincoln

    ★★★★★

    “Suppose some truant good fairy were to ask me … ‘Is there some American film you’d like me to make you the author of – with a wave of my wand?’ I would not hesitate to accept the offer, and I would at once name the film that I wish I had made. It would be Young Mr. Lincoln directed by John Ford.” -Sergei Eisenstein
