‘The Accountant’ (2016) Review

The Accountant (2016) Review: Miscalculated With a name like ‘The Accountant’, it’s hard to imagine anything but hyper aggressive keyboard clacking, horn rimmed glasses, and a job that few like. While Ben Affleck’s character in this film is an actual accountant, his job description entails more than the occasional audit,

‘Deepwater Horizon’ (2016) Review

Deepwater Horizon (2016) Review: Disaster Done Right Ripped from the headlines of the bygone days of 2010, ‘Deepwater Horizon’ reimagines the tragic events of April 20, 2010, in which the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, causing the deaths of 11 crewmen and the worst oil spill in US history. The

‘Queen Of Katwe’ (2016) Review

Queen of Katwe (2016) Review: Captivating and Conscious At the beginning of ‘Queen of Katwe’, my worst fears about the film seemed to have become a reality. This story of a Ugandan girl turned international chess champion had been translated into a watered down feel good Disney movie. One with

‘The Magnificent 7’ (2016) Review:

The Magnificent 7 (2016) Review: Baddest Quips In The West. After a more than disappointing summer movie season, I can’t help but feel a little bit cheated. While bright spots like ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Star Trek Beyond’ both had moments that were joy inducing, but on the whole,

‘When The Bough Breaks’ (2016) Review

When The Bough Breaks (2016) Review: Mild Suburban Nightmare. Sometimes, when reviewing a movie, you have to take into account its quality, versus how much it entertained you. Several times I’m sitting in the cinema and a movie that I know has paper thin characters, exposition a mile long, obvious

‘Kubo And The Two Strings’ (2016) Review

Kubo And The Two Strings (2016) Review: Music To My Eyes Sometimes, especially in the summer, film’s status as an art form tends to be forgotten. I guess it’s because when we think of art, we think of it as something that you have to “get” before you can relate

‘Hell Or High Water’ (2016) Review

Hell Or High Water (2016) Review: Old Fashioned Modern Western The Western genre is classic in every sense of the word. Inherently their movies are love letters to a bygone era, not just in filmmaking, but life itself. They’re designed to be extremely simple stories, that instantly resonate with audiences.

‘Sausage Party’ (2016) Review

Sausage Party (2016) Review: Dark, Biting, Cartoon Comedy Anthropomorphisized animation is nothing new. There are probably hundreds of movies featuring a thing or creature being brought to life. It makes sense. There’s definitely comedy to be found anytime you give human features to a non human. It’s probably the best

‘Pete’s Dragon’ (2016) Review

Pete’s Dragon (2016) Review: My Furry Friend And Me. Calling something a “Family film” is a strange bit of marketing. When I hear that I think here’s a movie that won’t offend you, be very charming, and probably make you cry a little. At the very best it might have
