'Aquaman' is turning the tide for DC Comics movies in a big way! The visuals and CGI are amazing and the action scenes are cartoonish good old-fashion fun. Some parts are literally right out of the comics which fans will love. Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, and Willem Dafoe, all have great chemistry. This film takes place after the events of 'Justice League' and I enjoyed this movie more than 'Justice League'. Some of the humor doesn't really work for me and some scenes drag on a little too long. But overall 'Aquaman' is entertaining, one of the better films in the DCEU, and I hope this leads the DCEU in a bigger and better direction. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐☆☆ - Nile Fortner
Director Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave) and writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) create a fun feminist heist thriller. McQueen's cinematic artistry is a standout and his directing is well-done. The film has some original style and shots that look great. The film packs a lot on one plate by having the movie touch upon race issues, religion, Chicago politics, social class, and gun violence, just to name a few. Some might find the story to be a little convoluted, but the twist ending ties everything up nicely. This has an amazing cast and some characters could have had more depth to their personality. I didn't expect to like this film as much as I did. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆ - Nile Fortner
'Inglorious Basterds' meets 'Dead Snow' in 'Overlord'. This film, produced by J.J. Abrams, delivers a B-Movie/Grindhouse thrill-ride with action and an all-out gorefest. Some scenes in this war-drama remind me of a video game, like Call of Duty and Wolfenstein. It's fun, packs suspense, and these Nazi zombies offered a lot of WTF moments. The film 'Overlord' has energy, style, and horror fans will feel like they won a battle going to the box office to see this film. - Nile Fortner
Jonah Hill's directorial debut 'mid90s' isn't brimming with character development and plot. However, it's a good coming-of-age story. The film doesn't beat you over the head with a wave of 1990s nostalgia and the prime focus isn't the '90s, but the friendship between the characters. It reminds me of Rosario Dawson in the movie 'Kids' and the film just follows L.A. skateboarding teenage friends hanging out. Even though the film takes place in the '90s, the issues with these kids are still relevant to this day. The film has heart and Hill is having fun. - Nile Fortner
