devil made me.jpeg

the conjuring: the devil made me do it

While The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It kicks off with an impressive and creepy start, although entertaining, unfortunately the frenetic pace from the films opening isn’t maintained throughout the film.

minamata.jpg

minamata

Minamata is a necessary film that is not only a heartbreaking tale anchored by one of Johnny Depp’s best performances to date, but is a timely critique of corrupt officials and the pollution of our planet.

lapsis.jpg

lapsis

While it is a novel and intriguing concept that asks some difficult but necessary questions of our society and culture, Lapsis needed a firmer direction for its narrative drive, characters and its societal critique.

quiet place 2.jpeg

a quiet place part II

As good as the first and filled with more edge of your seat thrills, A Quiet Place: Part II begs to be seen on the biggest screen possible. Blockbuster filmmaking at its very, very best. One of my hands down favorite films of 2021.

cruella-emma-stone-disney.jpg

cruella

Although both Emma’s are in stupendous form, the costume design is Oscar worthy and the sound track is cracking, the story doesn’t quite deliver as it possibly could have.

the artist's wife

While some tonal and thematic shifts may jar, The Artist's Wife features towering performances by Bruce Dern and Lena Olin as the Smythsons as the film explores the challenges that they face. 

Son-of-the-South.jpg

son of the south

Although Son of the South can be slow at times, the story is a powerful and needed tale for the times that we are living in.

those who wish me dead.jpg

those who wish me dead

Although Angelina Jolie draws you in with her acting skill, star power and charisma and Those Who Wish Me Dead is an entertaining film, the story leaves some character arcs and narrative threads hanging.

spiral from the book of saw.jpg

spiral: from the book of saw

Spiral: From the Book of Saw is an entertaining enough detective tale punctuated with horrific torture scenes, but has some character and plot lines that needed to be ironed out.

finding you.jpg

finding you

While Finding You won’t be considered groundbreaking cinema, it is a sweet film that ticks all of the boxes you’d expect from a romantic film.

james and isey.jpg

james & isey

James & Isey is a glorious, intimate, truly New Zealand film documenting the unique relationship between a mother and a son in wondrous detail.  

wrath of man.jpeg

wrath of man

Wrath of Man is a taunt thriller, stacked to the gunnels with action that takes nearly every expectation you have of a Guy Ritchie action flick and dumps them on their head in the best possible way. One of 2021’s best films. 

first cow.jpg

first cow

First Cow is a film of exquisite beauty which patiently explores themes of male friendship rarely seen in cinema.

i blame society.jpg

i blame society

I Blame Society is an entertaining and shocking look at one woman’s descent into chaos.

TWIST-min.jpg

Unfortunately Twist for all its fresh faced cast and ambition fails to bring the heart and soul of Dickens Oliver to the big screen.

tom-clancy-s-without-remorse-WORE_2021_U

without remorse

Michael B. Jordan’s intense performance along with director Sollima’s technical brilliance in crafting enthralling and imaginative action sequences saves the film from a rather predictable and dour plot.

Now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

the hitman's wife's bodyguard

While the script has moments that needed to be tightened up, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is a hilarious action stacked romp with Samuel L. Jackson, Ryan Reynolds and Salma Hayek at the top of their game.

ff9.jpg

fast and furious 9

Fast and Furious 9 is roaring with hissing, sometimes ludicrous action, a pulsating soundtrack all with a rich topping of family. Exactly the kind of popcorn, blockbuster film you’d expect from the Fast and Furious franchise.

A work of cinematic art, Flee is hauntingly beautiful,  bringing humanity to the European refugee crisis and all of its complexities.

facing monsters.jpeg

facing monsters

While Facing Monsters is a gnarly, breathless ride it doesn’t quite get under the skin of its subject as well as it might have.

c'mon c'mon

C'mon C'mon is an affecting and at times fraught story of the development of a meaningful connection between a man and his estranged nephew, and how this relationship comes to impact both of their lives.

While Aline has to be one of the most bizarre films of the year, it’s light, sweet touches make it a wonderful tribute to the one and only Celine Dion.

night raiders.jpeg

night raiders

Night Raiders is a confident and riveting film, with impressive production design and a strong central performance by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, it certainly is an impressive debut from writer/director Danis Goulet.

dog.jpg

dog

Dog is a charming buddy road movie that has something to say about the important things in life. A great leading performance by co-director Channing Tatum combined with strong storytelling make Dog a real winner. 

bergman island.jpg

bergman island

For a film that’s a complex musing on everything from the broken complexity of our heroes to the repetitive circle of art imitating life, Bergman’s Island is an accessible, light, romantic treat.
