    ★★★★★

    This was one of the first films I've seen from this director and I was greatly surprised by it! Left without a partner, David, who’s played by Collin Farrell, only has 45 days to find a new one or he will transform into an animal of his choosing. And if that's not wacky enough, he has to live at a hotel with other singles in hopes to bond a connection. From there, it unfolds the misadventures. It was consistently paced…

    The Night Comes for Us

    ★★★★★

    Night Comes for Us is an undeniably insane action film that came out within the last few years. Joe Taslim plays Ito, an elite criminal enforcer for the Triad in the southeast Asian area, turns his back on his past life of crime to save a girl when he has a sudden change of heart. This follows a string of attacks targeting Ito and anyone else who gets in the way. Iko Uwais was in this as well, who was plays…

    ★★½

    A new dystopian sci-fi thriller on Netflix with an interesting concept and cast. Stars Miles Teller as Jeff, one of the convicts that was offered to volunteer for drug trials in exchange to reduce his sentences but it takes a turn as the drugs push him to his limits. Teller and Jurnee Smollett who played Lizzy were wonderful together. I wasn’t digging Chris Hemsworth’s character but it was a different role for him. The film had some intrigue until the third…

    HBO’s latest true-crime drama miniseries is a compelling exploration of the Peterson family and the murder. Colin Firth stars as Michael Peterson, a crime novelist convicted of killing his wife Kathleen, played by Toni Collette (last seen in Nightmare Alley), who was found at the bottom of the stairs in their home. Phenomenal performances by the cast, especially by Firth and Collette. And Michael Stuhlbarg stole the scene every time he’s on-screen. It’s a dramatization constructed with different perspectives leading up to…

    The Unforgivable

    ★★½

    The Unforgivable is a drama thriller that's set in a classic hard-boiled world but could have done a lot more. Sandra Bullock stars as Ruth, a woman who served her time for a violent crime, get out early on good behavior, and renters society after 20 years. She tries to put her life back together while looking for the sister she left behind when she was incarcerated, but the world refuses to forgive her. Perfect title. We got a great performance…

    George Clooney adds another movie to filmography as a director with this lighthearted coming-of-age biopic. It’s a story about J.R., played by Daniel Ranieri as younger J.R and Tye Sheridan as older, of his upbringing at his Uncle Charlie’s (Ben Affleck) bar. Affleck was fun to watch as the straight shooter uncle and had some endearing moments with J.R. who was abandoned by his father. His mother Dorothy and Grandpa played by Lily Rabe and Christopher Lloyd gave some warm performances as…
