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 "Soul"

Soul

Pixar manages to cover a religion-based theme in a secular manner that appeals to both adults and children.

Must-See Streaming

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.

Poster for the movie "Nightcrawler"

Nightcrawler

A dark, unapologetic descent into the world of violence in journalism.

Zack Mayo is an aloof, taciturn man who aspires to be a navy pilot. Once he arrives at training camp for his 13-week officer's course, Mayo runs afoul of abrasive, no-nonsense drill Sergeant Emil Foley.
