    No One Will Save You


    "No One Will Save You" manages to bring terror and thrills with very little dialogue thanks to smart filmmaking and an exceptional turn from Kaitlyn Dever.

    What "A Million Miles Away" lacks in cinematography and budget is mostly made up through heart and the inspiring story of its subject. The film follows José Hernández, a Mexican immigrant who had to apply for the NASA program 12 times and balance his family life at the same time. Michael Peña is terrific in the leading role, and he is supported by an impressive Rosa Salazar. The film looks like a made-for-TV melodrama most of the time as the lack of budget is evident, but there is potential in Alejandra Marquez Abella's dynamic direction as seen in the montages and climactic moments.

He will continually send “Need a friend…

    Ghosts of War


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is a standard haunted house horror with a World War II setting, so I definitely signed up even with its poor reception. Ghosts of War has loads of promising conceptualization: a murdered family of Jew rescuers, an elaborate Gothic mansion, an intriguing tale of revenge, and an allegory of post-traumatic stress disorder. The formulaically-structured events in the mansion are wonky and all over the place, but I would be lying if I say that I did not enjoy the…
