    A Walk Among the Tombstones

    ★★★

    Though Liam Neeson is not in full "Taken" mode here, I have to say that I probably enjoyed this more than any of Neeson's more recent film (with the exception of the thoroughly entertaining "The Grey"). His supporting cast (with actors like Dan Stevens, Boyd Holbrook and David Harbour) is also notable.

    The story is nothing exceptional. It's a rather generic hostage thriller that nevertheless has some interesting moments and a very thick and crushing atmosphere.

    ★★★★½

    Yes, Jordan Peele managed to knock it out of the park on his very first try and that's impressive to begin with, but "Get Out" is also such a delight to watch that I almost get jealous of him and his talent. As far as social satire goes, this is up there with the best.

    Daniel Kaluuya is a true revelation as our protagonist, Chris Washington. Although the true MVP of this film is called LilRel Howery. The whole Armitage…
