Don't Breathe
Don't Breathe (2016)
18 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Three millennials' home-robbery spree comes to an abrupt end when they try to rip off a blind guy who is nothing like what they are expecting. The wannabe thugs get pretty much exactly what was coming to them in this twisted, edge-of-your-seat nail-biter.

Gorgeous cinematography of wide-open Texas landscapes is the highlight of this movie starring Ben Foster and Chris Pine as brothers who go on a bank-robbing spree. Jeff Bridges has his usual full mouthful of peanut butter and marbles as a crusty cop on the verge of retirement who is on the brothers' tail.

If you live for CGI cyclones like I now do, boy, is this the movie for you. Not only do you have the usual swirling CGI tornadoes that are a must in superhero flicks, but this one has interdimensional ones and CGI tornadoes that go backwards in time. It's an all-you-can eat buffet of swirling, neon-tinged CGI swirls. So drink some absinthe or take your hallucinogen of choice and go to town. Benedict Cumberbatch is exactly how I pictured Dr. Strange, Tilda Swinton elevates things, and Mads Mikkelsen removed some of the peanut butter usually in his mouth, which made him slightly easier to understand. I won't spoil the ending, but it's, um, loopy. And swirling... lots of swirling.

Ouija: Origin of Evil

2016 has been a terrific year for horror films. This prequel to the 2014 film is in an entirely different league. It's set in 1967 Los Angeles and focuses on a fortune teller and her two girls who get way in over their heads with supernatural shenanigans. This is rated PG-13, but there are some really scary moments here, unlike its lame predecessor. This is directed by Mike Flanagan, the same guy who did "Oculus," another original horror film that was a cut above the rest. He's one to watch after this one.

I've always been on Team Burton, but this is a true return to form for the director. It's just magic. I can't wait to watch it again at home. Eva Green is clearly his new muse.
