Rating History

The Family Fang
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Jason Bateman's second time at bat as director (and star) is well, pretty "fang-tastic! Nicole Kidman (who seems to finally have thawed) plays Bateman's sister. As kids, they grew up as part of "performance art" parents art. Needless to say, they are somewhat messed up and forced to work together when their parents disappear. The parents are play in present day by Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett(!) - and in flashbacks by Jason Butler Harner(!) and the always wonderful Kathryn Hahn. Playwright David Lindsay-Abaire adapted the novel for the screen. The film is both hilarious and moving - and ultimately thought provoking. Saw it a week ago and still thinking about it. You can see it in the cinema or streaming.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Everyone seemed to hate this movie, so I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that I liked it. A vast improvement over "Man of Steel," its biggest flaw is the wretched and laughable performance by Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. On the plus side Diana Prince arrives and the set up for the Justice League proves most intriguing for me.

Triple 9
Triple 9 (2016)
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Dirty cops commit crimes for the Russian mob in this dark and violent action flick. Swiftly directed with a dynamite cast.

Krampus (2015)
10 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Bloody good holiday horror fun. More along the line of Gremlins than Silent Night, Deadly Night.

Anomalisa (2015)
10 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An anomaly is something that deviates from what is standard, normal or expected. While that could easily describe any of Charlie Kaufman's films nothing could be more appropriate than his latest - a stop action "comedy" ultimately about loneliness. Thought provoking, bizarre and pretty much brilliant - but likely not for everyone. I, for one, can not stop thinking about it. Hands down best animated film of the year!
