Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
22 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Superb film, Well-acted, and INCREDIBLY cast, but slightly plodding and confusing. Bears repeated viewing if you have not read the book. I love Oldman, who is a superb actor, and enjoy his restrained and subtle performance in this. A beautifully made and fully realized film that grows upon the viewer with repeated viewings. Not a light or casual view. You have to REALLY pay attention, or you have no shot of following it.

Admittedly, I don't like Hendrick. That isn't the kiss of death, however, as I still like THE ACCOUNTANT. That having been said, this film has no purpose or reason to exist. It isn't funny and doesn't tell a story of any value. A barely watchable headscratcher that will leave you with but one question: How did this thing ever get made?

Ben-Hur
Ben-Hur (2016)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A breezy remake that lacks depth and adds nothing to the substantial body of previous Ben Hur works. The illness, injury, and suffering of a horse was given far greater concern and depth of feeling than that of Christ. The compressed ending glosses over the crucifixion, and all old wounds and injuries are unconvincingly healed and forgiven in two minutes. The ending unsatisfying and given disproportionately little attention relative to events of little weight or importance. Marginally watchable, but don't expect much. **/*****. 25/53.

At The Devil's Door
10 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Decent horror film. It isn't anything to write home about and the plot gets muddled by the end, but it wasn't an awful way to spend a little time on a rainy day. They missed several opportunities to elevate this to the next level. Watching it can help you spot how they blew it. The demon, revealed for less than four seconds total, was very cool. The film had one brilliant scene I loved. That's why I'm giving it two stars. **/*****. 32/21.
