Don't Breathe
Don't Breathe (2016)
6 days ago via Flixster

An effective thriller that uses the lack of sound in some scenes to build tension. The backstory of the blind man is a little over the top, but the movie flies by at 80 minutes and keeps you on your toes until the very end. They definitely left room for a sequel if they choose to do one.

Grade: B

Nine Lives
Nine Lives (2016)

Not the dud critics are making it out to be, but it is still a bad movie. The fact that it has a good cast and a decent director makes it even more frustrating.

Grade: D-

Sing

A collection of popular songs help tell the story of a kola who holds a singing competition to save his aging theater. The songs are what really makes the movie. If you can get past the fact that the movie is neither original in its plot or animation, then you will enjoy yourself. The kids will love it and there is enough older songs for the adults to tap along as well.

Grade: B+

Manchester by the Sea

A frontrunner for Best Picture proves itself in this sobering and tragic tale about a man who loses his brother and is forced to care for his teenage nephew. Casey Affleck gives one of those career-defining performances that may just get him one of those golden statutes his older brother has. Through flashbacks, writer/director Kenneth Lonergan shows us how life was for Affleck's character when he used to live in Manchester. Slowly, we find out why he moved to Boston and why he no longer keeps in contact with certain people. We also get to see his relationship with his nephew as a child. These flashbacks help flesh out an already complex main character who is basically down on his luck in life. By the end, there aren't really any happy resolutions. Life goes on no matter what. It's a downer of a movie, but one of the best films of the year.

Grade: A

A WWII drama in the vein of Hitchcock, Robert Zemeckis gives us a love story and spy thriller in one. After marrying his French contact during the war, Brad Pitt must find out if his wife is a German spy. The first half focuses on the couple's mission and them falling in love. The second half switches gears and becomes a suspense movie. Like Pitt's character, we begin to question if Marion Cotillard really is a spy. I enjoyed the second act more than I did the first, but overall, I liked the movie. Zemickis is great at tension and action scenes. The two leads are pretty to look at and the ending is pretty intense.

Grade: B+
