5/5 86% Norman (Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer) (2017) Makes us root for the guy who is the author of his own troubles, but whose innate decency is a shining beacon in a world of ethical compromise. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 69% Tommy's Honour (2017) An admirable effort, rather than one that will get the adrenaline pumping, with fine performances, albeit ones that seem muted amid the prevailing decorum of 19th-century Britain. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 87% The Lost City of Z (2017) Gray and Grann do more than tell a cracking good story, they contemplate the incomparable joy and driving madness found in the quest for greatness, making the Grail of secondary importance.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 74% The Void (2017) A beautifully executed horror film that pays homage to the genre's roots while carving out its own enigmatically creepy mythos. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 30% The Assignment (2017) With an arch wink and a nod, THE ASSIGNMENT dissects society's norms via its less reputable elements as cleanly and mercilessly as Jane removed Frankie's manhood.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 73% The Blackcoat's Daughter (February) (2017) Never routine, exquisitely savage, it is an artfully disquieting experience equally terrifying in both innuendo and flashing blade. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 81% Mean Dreams (2017) Paxton, in one of his last performances, is a diabolical blend of fresh-faced wholesomeness and pure evil.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 68% Life (2017) It's more interesting than compelling, with committed performances by the cast, and a whiz-bang use of the idea that in zero gravity, there is no right-side-up. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 21% The Ottoman Lieutenant (2017) A slight but eminently humane story, lushly filmed, and richly romantic. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 19% The Shack (2017) The constant reminders that everything is going to be alright, and that we should not worry our pretty little heads about why evil is allowed to exist, has a distinctly condescending tone that for all the noble speeches leaves a sour aftertaste. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 92% Logan (2017) A tale that is as psychically violent as it is physically so, it is a sharp descant to the earlier films in the franchise as it presents a brooding, aging Logan very near the end of his existential rope.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 35% The Great Wall (2017) WALL is a big, blustery action-adventure flick in the classic mold, but with one exception. There's no damsel in distress here. Instead, the winsome lady of the piece is a warrior with nerves of steel and no fear of heights. Kudos there.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 No Score Yet Six Rounds (2016) A perfect distillation of character and mood expressed in silence and in shouts; of emotion visualized through quick cuts and slow motion into a tone poem of stark eloquence with nary a flaw in its running time.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 84% The Lure (C√≥rki dancingu) (2017) A film of black humor, grungy debauchery, and ravishingly surreal eroticism done with an idiom that blends high camp with unexpected pathos .‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) the stuff of a potboiler, and one that is ready, willing, and able to boil over into the ridiculous with alarming regularity‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 41% A Cure For Wellness (2017) This hodge-podge of dental torture, putative madness, and a very clumsy use of eels as metaphor wears out its welcome well before the final credits roll, skittering pell-mell towards an ending that is painfully obvious and even more painfully trite.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 90% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) revisits all those elements that were so very right in the first film, and ... amps up into another violent flight of fancy replete with exquisitely choreographed mayhem and a suitably black sense of humor. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 25% The Comedian (2017) I wish THE COMEDIAN were more focused. As it ponders issues of ageism and talent in the age of social media and viral videos, it may never gel, but it does resound.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 94% Midsummer in Newtown (2017) [An] elegiac yet emotionally gripping documentary about the aftereffects of the Sandy Hook Massacre on the survivors.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 94% Neruda (2016) As a portrait of an artist with imperfections and genius, it has a truth that mere reportage cannot approach. As a portrait of a country grappling with applying abstract ideology to human endeavor, it is unimpeachable.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 84% The Founder (2017) Who knew that milkshakes would loom so large in the story of how McDonald's became the corporate behemoth that it is today? ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) A thoughtful film about the cycle of life, and a sublime cinematic achievement. A masterpiece, in fact.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 34% Live By Night (2017) if only we were given a plausible reason for Joseph battling through a bloodbath in a white linen suit and not getting a spot of anything on him. Even sweat.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 85% Silence (2017) A maddening film more to be admired than enjoyed as it wrestles with questions of faith, compassion, and the prison of dogma. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 95% Paterson (2016) The quintessence of everything Jim Jarmusch has done before. Playful in approach, profound in meaning, it is a lyrical evocation of joy and sorrow as lived by a bus driver/poet during one eventful yet ordinary week in his life. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 98% Long Way North (Tout en haut du monde) (2016) Uses deceptively simple animation to tell the epic adventure. of Sasha, a spirited and determined 15-year-old set on restoring her family's honor, and the legacy her of her beloved grandfather.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

1/5 31% Passengers (2016) A long, increasingly preposterous slog whose most tantalizing element is the question of why Jennifer Lawrence looks so very much like a young Renee Zellweger in some shots.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 40% Why Him? (2016) Cranston's mastery of the slow burn coupled with discomfited politeness makes the most of a script that regularly goes off the rails into crass and scatological shoals. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2016
2/5 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) a middling sort of film almost redeemed by fine performances by Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. Oh, and a truly kick-ass rendering of 15th-century Parkour. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 61% Allied (2016) A script that regularly comes unaccountably unhinged, and a performance by Pitt that is puzzling, all but put the kaybosh on greatness. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) watching Redmayne do a mating pas de deux with a mountainous cross between a rhino and a firefly is almost worth the price of admission on its own‐ Killer Movie Reviews

5/5 100% Tower (2016) Strikingly elegiac, it recreates a time and place that can never be lived again on many levels, and does so with sensitivity and compassion. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 90% Doctor Strange (2016) From a whiz-bang opening sequence where space folds in on itself as combatants hurl magical fire at on another, to the charismatic, ahem, marvel that is Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, this action film is a knockout.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 87% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) this film is a harrowing experience, but also one that is jubilantly uplifting in its celebration of quiet courage and the strength of personal belief‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) this is film that should not be taken lightly. It will seep into the dark places of your psyche, and titillate your moral compass in disturbing yet delightful ways. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 97% The Love Witch (2016) Combines wicked visual juxtapositions, inspired bad acting, and the oddest burlesque show ever in an inordinately entertaining examination of the perils of waiting for Prince Charming. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

3/5 38% Kampai! For the Love of Sake (2016) A paean to more than just rice wine. It is a consideration of tradition in transition and the wondrous possibilities that being open to new ways can engender.‐ Killer Movie Reviews

2/5 64% Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) Burton seems uninterested in the live-action component that Burton seems uninterested in what comes between the bouts of CGI, gifting it with lackluster pacing as his protagonists fumble easy shots and make several questionable decisions ‐ Killer Movie Reviews

4/5 96% Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) (2016) A cracking good time at the movies. Inventive, even daring, and barely a predictable moment in its 118 minutes. ‐ Killer Movie Reviews
