A Monster Calls

The reason stories are written.

Ghost in the Shell

½

The kind of film that goes unnoticed until twenty years later where it develops a cult following. The current generation of movie goers forgets the punk in cyberpunk is not compatible with blockbuster hits, or run-of-the-mill hipster audiences.

Beauty and the Beast
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

If you can suffer through an act and a half of lolling long camera shots, terrible editing, wooden acting, wet hair CGI from the 90s, and strange new songs, the climax and ending are magical and beautiful and well worth the wait.

Logan
Logan (2017)

Tries to defy superhero movie cliche, and starts out smart, then realizes that superhero movies because of the comic material they are based on...well..how to put this...just aren't.

Arrival
Arrival (2016)

"Arrival" has some really, really lazy film storytelling, but it masks it well by being very smart. The laziness comes in the fact that the movie never explains why the aliens need to do what they did so they are saved in the future. Ignoring this important fact so you can just show a movie about whether or not knowing the future will stop how you live is weak storytelling. If that is your theme, it should permeate your film, not just be a quick wrap up at the end to get some awards and pat yourself on the back for deep thinking. Sicario was much, much better. However, it had some great acting, and a fascinating plot (until the end) and good sound.
