This is grimy and real to its core early on, but Baker’s formula doesn’t hold up for nearly two hours.
The Foreigner starring Jackie Chan worked so much better than The Foreigner starring Pierce Brosnan. The latter is forced down our throats, and I can’t help but wonder why.
Villeneuve adds to his already impressive resume with Blade Runner 2049, setting the bar for future sci-fi tales.
Happy Death Day would’ve been a halfway decent film if it stuck to a shlocky hack-and-slash film. The direction and unsuccessful scares keeps this horror film in the “skip” category.
Villeneuve is a director that slowly, but surely, is making a name for himself. Arrival is one of the more wonderfully shot films I’ve seen in the last decade.
I had the displeasure of watching three films on a recent trip to Europe. Why did I opt for Power Rangers, Ghost in the Shell and Assassin’s Creed? Who the heck knows.
I recognize the talent between Elba and Winslet, how they can carry scenes on their own and the raw emotion they can display on-screen. I just couldn’t buy into what The Mountain Between Us was selling.
