mother! (2017)
29 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There won't be any middle ground on this film. You either love it, or hate it. That was obvious from the comments I overheard exiting the theater. Some people raved about how great it was, others said it was the worst effing piece of trash they'd ever seen. I'm in the former category in loving every over-the-top allegorical reference in the film. I was mesmerized with Jennifer Lawrence's performance. Javier Bardem was his usual excellent self, as were Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. The intensity of the last half is unreal.

Wind River
Wind River (2017)

A murder mystery set on an Indian reservation in Wyoming. It's smart, well-written with great cinematography. Elizabeth Olsen is a rookie FBI agent out of her element -- Las Vegas via Fort Lauderdale -- who teams up with Jeremy Renner, a game warden entirely within his element. Both are terrific and Renner deserves an Oscar nomination. But best supporting actor should go to the weather. It's mesmerizing. Definitely my favorite movie of the year.

Charlize Theron again proves she's an awesome action star putting in the best fight scenes I've seen in movies in a long time. The plot gets a bit convoluted. The sound track is great. Had a good time at this movie. Although I did hate the change in title, and the "Coldest City" would've been so much better.

The Accountant
11 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Interesting plot line keeps the film moving briskly over its 2 hours plus. Affleck puts in a good performance as the autistic, brilliant, gun-toting accountant. But that's where it ends. As a fan of Anna Kendrick, it's a bit sad to have her just be a prop to veer the storyline in a certain direction. John Lithgow, another fave, also does little except collect a check. And as in most action flicks these days, the action is a flurry of edits to avoid having to choreograph actual fight scenes. Not a total time waster, but it could've been so much better.
