The Big Sick
The Big Sick (2017)
6 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I can't believe how a traditional rom-com can be so original, but The Big Sick is. The key to this movie is its charm, which it has in spades thanks to the chemistry between Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan. The writing is clever, the story is compelling, and the cast gels together very well. While it's not without some traditional rom-com flaws, this film does a great job keeping them to a minimum. It's also great to see Bo Burnham and Ray Romano at work. This is one of the best films of 2017.

Get Out
Get Out (2017)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film works incredibly well as a comedy, horror, or psychological thriller. Almost too well as I occasionally found myself wishing it would pick a lane and drive it home. In the end, however, I'm glad it didn't. This movie had too many points to make to keep things simple. Kaluuya and Williams put on fine performances, but Peele proves to be the mastermind, getting every little directorial detail right in what is sure to be one of the best films on 2017.

Lion
Lion (2016)
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An incredible true story told very well by Garth Davis and performed wonderfully by Dev Patel and the true star: Sunny Pawar. I work with children, and how you get a 6 year old to act as amazingly as he did is beyond me. It is an interesting and important story than informs and entertains.

Moonlight
Moonlight (2016)
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film includes great direction, scoring and cinematography, and stand out performances by Naomi Harris and Ashton Sanders. Despite all of that, and it's relevant and "important" subject matter, it is still the movie equivalent of Rohypnol and left no impression on me at all. The bullying scenes were a little too "after-school special" and fake, and its snail-like pace really tests the audience. This film will get faux love, genuine love, faux criticism and genuine criticism, so it may be hard to determine if you should go see it. I say, unless you have a particular interest, save your time and money.
