Review: Insidious: The Last Key

PLOT: Summoned to her childhood home to help a new tenant ward the place of murderous spirits, Dr. Elise Rainier ( Lin Shaye ) must contend with her own deep psychic scars that haven’t fully healed over the last 57 years. REVIEW: It doesn’t say much for a horror movie when the scariest thing while watching it doesn’t come from the film itself, but from a...

Review: Phantom Thread

PLOT: In 1950s London, a demanding dressmaker finds his world irrevocably altered when he falls for a timid young waitress. REVIEW: PHANTOM THREAD might be the most unusual romantic comedy ever made. There have been more bizarre topics tackled within the genre, and it has been populated by far more eccentric characters, of course, but Paul Thomas Anderson's lush and...

Review: Pitch Perfect 3

PLOT: The Bellas join a USO tour overseas and engage in another a capella singing competition, while Fat Amy is reunited with her long lost father, who wants more than to just be reconnected with his daughter. REVIEW: It's not inaccurate to say I consider the first two PITCH PERFECT movies guilty pleasures. The first one surprised me with how goofily charming it ended up...

Review: The Greatest Showman

PLOT: A musical detailing the rise of sensationalist P.T. Barnum, who came from nothing and created the phenomenon known as "the circus." REVIEW: From the opening few minutes, I had a feeling I would like THE GREATEST SHOWMAN. Maybe like isn't the correct word; appreciate is more exact. I'm not a musical guy by any means, but I do admire movies that go...

Review: Hangman

PLOT: A retired detective calls upon a former partner for help when a serial killer known as the Hangman starts killing one person a day. REVIEW: Everything about the blatant weariness of HANGMAN can be seen in the actors' faces, no more so than Al Pacino 's. We know that Al's now in this mid-70s, so it's a safe bet that not going to knock every role out of the...

Review: Beyond Skyline

PLOT: During an alien invasion, a grizzled ex-cop teams up with a frazzled train conductor to find his kidnapped son, trapped aboard a UFO. REVIEW: I had written a list of the bizarre, inexplicable things that happen in BEYOND SKYLINE with the intention of sharing some of them with you here, just to give you an idea of the film's complete devotion to being as bonkers as...

Review: Coco

PLOT: A young Mexican boy obsessed with becoming a great singer takes an unexpected trip to the Land of the Dead, where he hopes to meet his hero, a famous musician, as well as get the approval of his deceased relatives. REVIEW: At this point, it's hardly a surprise when Disney-Pixar delivers a beautiful, thoughtful new animated film to the world; the only questions...

Review: Blade of the Immortal

PLOT: An immortal samurai comes out of retirement to help a traumatized young girl seek revenge on the men who killed her father. REVIEW: At the age of 57, and after 99 films, you can't say Japanese director Takashi Miike has lost any of the verve or lust for off-the-wall action that has characterized most of his films up until this point. Miike's BLADE OF THE...

Review: Jigsaw

PLOT: As has happened many times in the past, Jigsaw is doling out brutal life lessons at the expense of a group of shady captives. REVIEW: Perhaps it was just wishful thinking - though more likely it was naivety - but I actually went into JIGSAW thinking it might reinvigorate the franchise. Take for example its directors, the talented Spierig Brothers, who've made such...

Review: Novitiate

PLOT: A teenaged girl enters the convent to become a nun, which requires a year of intense training and discipline. REVIEW: It's often easier to flat-out hate a movie than to feel ambivalent about it. My problem with NOVITIATE, the directorial debut of Margaret Betts , isn't that it's a bad movie, because I don't think it necessarily is, but it simply didn't connect to me in...

Review: Wonderstruck

PLOT: In 1970s Michigan, a young boy finds a clue about his missing father and decides to pursue it all the way to New York. In 1920s New York, a young deaf girl attempts to make a connection with her actress mother. REVIEW: He may not be the most obvious choice to bring to life a movie about children, and ostensibly for children, but Todd Haynes does quite a capable job...
