The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi)
13 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Park Chan-wook's "The Handmaiden" is a smart, provocative, haunting, and visually mesmerizing movie about love, lust, and deception, filled with twists and turns along the way brilliantly weaved by Park Chan-wook's excellent direction, featuring fantastic performances from Min-hee Kim, Ha Jung-woo, Jin-woong Jo, and Kim Tae-ri. "The Handmaiden" is cinematic bliss at its most aroused.

Allied (2016)

½

"Allied" is a highly enjoyable World War 2 drama thanks to Robert Zemeckis' great direction, fantastic performances from Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, well crafted action sequences, and a classic style of filmmaking you don't see very often nowadays.

The Siege of Jadotville
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"The Siege of Jadotville" is the unknown story about an Irish peacekeeper troop commanded by Commandant Pat Quilan to Katanga, in Congo, sent to protect the inhabitants of the mining town of Jadotville in the beginning of a civil war. "The Siege of Jadotville" had potential to be really good but ends up just being a solid film, the direction by first time director Richie Smyth is very good, and Jamie Dorman of Fifty Shades fame gives a great performance as Commandant Pat Quilan, sadly, that's about all I can credit this film for, the score is awfully generic and out of place, everyone who aren't apart of the peacekeeper troop are portrayed as villains, and the sound design is lacking. With a bigger budget maybe this film could have turned out to be really good, but as it stands I really can't recommend this film to anyone, as I said, it's a solid film, it's just lacking any real substance to be worth a watch, unless the story sounds interesting to you, go ahead, if not, don't bother, as I said it lacks a lot of substance and leaves more to be desired.

Moonlight
Moonlight (2016)
18 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

"Moonlight" is a stunning, beautifully shot, beautifully scored, greatly acted film about a young black kid (man) coming to grips with his homosexuality, dealing with school bullies and an abusive, drug fueled mother played brilliantly by Naomi Harris, in fact everyone in Barry Jenkin's newest film are quite astounding in their roles, you could tell that everyone involved in the film cared about what they were doing, and in doing so they've delivered one of the best films of this year, and one of the best films in recent years. "Moonlight" is truly a remarkable piece of cinema and a must see for cinephiles everywhere.
