Walking Out Movie Review

As a study of this rite of passage, Walking Out is an arduous journey with a huge contrast between the stunning beauty of the winter landscape and the stark human condition after an accident occurs that rips both of their lives apart forever.   //   The winter scenery of Montana plays a pivotal role in the proceedings and shows mother nature to be a very cruel taskmaster. The film tells the tale of both father and son and via flashbacks, father and grandfather. The two ...

Red Sparrow Movie Review

Jennifer Lawrence delivers her bravest performance yet and adds another outstanding job to her ever expanding resume of excellence. As an actor, she endures almost as much pain and shows as much commitment as her character does on screen.   //   The film slowly builds and builds, so viewers looking for that quick visceral thrill might have to look elsewhere but for those that revel in playing arm chair detective themselves, will find much to love as the clues unfold. ...

Winchester Movie Review

The story involving the guilt felt by the surviving widow of the creator of the huge Winchester Arms company is a solid one. The way this guilt manifests itself as the story evolves opens quite a few doors for exploration of the world of the living and the dead but it can’t sustain such a poor script.   //   Even the mighty Helen Mirren, try as she might, can’t do much with the wooden marbles she has to spit out. As the cliches pile up, the film relies more and more ...

Game Night Movie Review

It throws so many jokes your way, that even when some fall a bit flat, you know more successful ones are just around the corner. The cast is well chosen and the fresh faced Rachel McAdams and the ever sardonic Jason Bateman have good chemistry together and the always weird and wonderful Jesse Plemons plays the creepy cop next door neighbour perfectly.   //   You can’t tell too much of the story without giving away some of the delicious surprises in store, so the best ...

All the Money in the World Movie Review

The kidnapping of the grandson of the at the time richest man in the world made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The crime of course but also the refusal of said rich man to even consider paying the ransom, it was an insight to a new level of greed and indifference to human suffering that set a new low human standard. One of the films most surprising elements is how many scenes replacement actor Christopher Plummer is actually in and how well he captures the prickly character of  J. ...
