(4 Stars) An important film that explores the world of sound.
A powerful drama with terrific acting from Kaluuya, but needs some work on the story. (4 Stars)
(3.5 Stars). Technically near perfect, but ‘Where’s the beef?’
(4 Stars) A good telling of an important moment in history that is relevant today.
(4.5 Stars) A terrific thriller that is also a romantic comedy and a social commentary. Fun in many ways, but with an important message.
(4.5 Stars) A sometimes difficult movie to watch, but with powerful moments. The boundaries between love and hate are thin.
(3.5 Stars) A movie Of Hollywood, By Hollywood, and, most importantly, FOR Hollywood!
(4 Stars) Does everything a mystery should do and then some. Sharp and witty.
(4 Stars) A technical masterpiece that overwhelms the story.
(4 Stars) Ethan Hawke in a well-crafted mystery/thriller full of plot twists and turns. If you pay attention, you will be rewarded.
(3.5 Stars) Liberals will find humor and lots to support disliking Cheney. Conservatives, well, maybe you should avoid this one.
(4.5 Stars) Best Picture Winner and a compelling tale of two men, unlikely partners in a road-trip through the Deep South. One of the better movies of the year.
