Poster for the movie "The Woman in the Window"

The Woman in the Window

The view from the window varies among the Sully Brothers. Do we see things clearly, or should we call in the window washers?

Image from the movie "Coming 2 America"

Coming 2 America

A love letter to the original in every way, repeating the same jokes and plot points with little effort to stand apart.

Poster for the movie "I Care a Lot"

I Care a Lot

A dark comedy with a good premise, but poor execution.

Poster for the movie "Greenland"

Greenland

A disaster movie that gives us action while keeping a grounded POV.

Poster for the movie "Outside the Wire"

Outside the Wire

Decent action with a nice futuristic take, but is immediately forgettable.

Poster for the movie ""

The Midnight Sky

The tone felt 2 dimensional given the circumstances of the story. Clooney was both the draw AND the appeal, but it wasn’t enough.

Poster for the movie "Coherence"

Coherence

A minimalist sci-fi concept movie that is well-executed and compelling.

Poster for the movie "Training Day"

Training Day

This movie has a look and feel that is immersive and tense, and despite Fuqua’s continued and celebrated career, Training Day set a bar that I doubt he’ll ever reach again.

Poster for the movie "Stranger Than Fiction"

Stranger Than Fiction

There is something special about comedians playing dramatic roles, and Will Ferrell in Stranger Than Fiction is truly special.

Overview

A new, technologically-superior Soviet sub, the Red October, is heading for the U.S. coast under the command of Captain Marko Ramius. The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack. A lone CIA analyst has a different idea: he thinks Ramius is planning to defect, but he has only a few hours to find him and prove it — because the entire Russian naval and air commands are trying to find him, too.
