Darkest Hour: or as I would call it “Gary Oldman’s Best Actor Oscar-winning movie”

The 90th Academy Award hasn’t take place until March 4th but as far as I’m concern, the best actor race is already a foregone conclusion after I watched THE DARKEST HOUR starring Gary Oldman. I wasn’t expecting much going into this movie because there had been a couple recent movies about Churchill. I was wondering … Continue reading

The Creepy sensation of watching The Killing Of A Sacred Deer

Some movie do not have any gore or jump-out-to-spook gimmick to effectively creep the devil out of you. The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is this type of movie.

The chilly reception for The Snowman is no fluke

The first question I had in my head when I walked out of the advance screening of The Snowman was ” What went wrong with this movie?”.

It NEVER comes at night

I only have a very short review on this over-rated film. It Comes At Night is all atmosphere and no substance. If you are expecting a pay off or a big reveal at the end of the movie after all the slow, tension building set up, well, it never turned up. You will leave the […]
