• In any case this is an effective drama with themes universal in nature. The most fundamentally basic human characteristic is to reach out to one’s family and there’s nothing more heartbreaking to see the bond ripped apart by forces alien to the human.

  • Split, however, is a bonafide roar back to form which showcases why Shyamalan became a superstar in the first place.

  • Along with Reeves the big star of the film is returning director Chad Stahelski who lathers the stunt sequences with intricately designed moves of ass kickery backed up with some seriously stunning cinematography. There’s heightened mood in each dramatic or action scene.

  • If you’re ready to ignore some of its misgivings, Hidden Figures is still a pretty enjoyable watch, and if you had the fortune of learning FORTRAN in school you’ll find the film a wonderful sendoff to the programming language.

  • Those who have grown up with the Batman action figures will have a total blast watching the film seeing as pretty much every supervillain, from the A grade ones like Bane to the C grade ones like Killer Croc and even some hilariously fictional ones, categorised by Batman himself as Z grade villains show up in droves.

  • The only interesting aspect of the film is Vincent D’Onofrio who is delightfully unhinged as a blind priest with strange motivations – someone needs to cast this guy as the Ultimate Monster in a horror movie and watch the sparks fly.

  • Just when one thought the Young Adult genre of movies was dead, The Space Between Us pops up and continues to make the case for the genre to be permanently buried.

  • The truly frustrating aspect of the film is how it feels like a propaganda piece. The white men in the film have some layers to their personalities, but none of the Chinese characters in the film are real humans – they are robotically fatalist and patriotic and would in fact do anything for their country including giving up their lives.

  • This is a movie that hates the audience and expects them to furiously hate it back.

  • What works for the film is how unhinged Kroc is and the way he is presented as a straightforward asshole. There is absolutely no gray area at all – Kroc is the very definition of an opportunist spineless businessman as we go through a series of montages containing his rapid-fire business dealings.
