Hidden Figures
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

As a piece of cinematic art, Hidden Figures relies on the form and pattern that informs other similar historical dramas of the modern era. This isn't a bad thing, since I think this way of approaching things is working well for the most part. Hidden Figures will tell you a great story and do it with a sleek sensibility that exudes confidence, but it doesn't break any new ground. It's a thoroughly enjoyable film and it is thought-provoking, so I do encourage seeing it!

Bad Company
Bad Company (1972)
8 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I'm normally not a fan of the 70's revisionist or "acid" westerns because they normally just revel in their mire and "authenticity" and demythologizing the west in favor of making an interesting film. Bad Company is clearly a product of that era, but it escapes the traps that makes most of those movies a snore. The characters are great and the story is fun. We laugh at the lack of knowledge these young city guys have about all the stuff other gruff n tough guys in the western movies have known all their lives. The film has a lot to say about youthful inexperience in general.
Also of importance, Gordon Willis (of The Godfather fame) does the cinematography here and it is worth the price of admission alone. This came out the same year The Godfather did, and that same super cool lighting technique is here in its entirety. It looks like a western Godfather. I kept saying it looked like The Godfather before I was even aware Willis had actually worked on it. Really superb work from him.
Also, can't beat a good young Jeff Bridges performance!

Letter From an Unknown Woman
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Poses all sorts of interesting questions of love gone wrong on either side of the relationship, with some delicious lighting and cinematography complementing the action.

Collateral Beauty
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Some hackneyed plot elements and hilariously bad acting (from Knightly especially) brings down what is otherwise an excellent plea to cherish what you have and never take it for granted.

Collateral (2004)
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is a pretty impressive neo-noir that actually succeeds at some serious suspense scenes. There are times in the film where you feel the pace go all wrong with some extraneous scenes, but overall this is a superb piece of slick LA thriller fare.
