    The Nymphets

    ★★★½

    This movie is not for everyone.  It fits within the mumble-core movement, with its natural feel and spontaneous dialogue.  The movie did explore the different behaviors of men and women while relying on sexual tension.

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★★

    Edgar Wright is back!  Baby Driver had aptly been described as a post-modern musical.  There is no singing, but the action and visuals are so carefully tied to the music of the film, it is not doubt a dance between sight and sound.  The humor was a nice surprise and the car stunts were spectacular.  Tonally Baby Driver felt like a mix of Drive and Gaudians of the Galaxy.  (If you see the movie, trust me, that comparison will make sense).  Writing wise the third act was a little bumpy, but overall this is a smooth, well crafted ride worth taking.

    The Belko Experiment

    ★★★★

    When I first saw the trailer for The Belko Experiment, complete with the tag line "Battle Royal [meets] Office Space", they had my twelve dollars... SOLD. This is a movie with a strong concept, it reminds you of a real life representation of that question they asked you in ethics class, you know, about the sinking ship and who would you save because you can only save a few. 

     That being said, I am a fan of both Battle Royal…

    I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

    ★★★★½

    This is an irreverent comedy that is so natural and true to life that it makes fora fun ride.  The directorial debut for Actor Macon Blair (Green Room), a must see.  Elijah Wood gave a great, pitch perfect performance.
