Moonlight (Guest Review ft. CineMuseFilms)

Moonlight has more in common with impressionist paintings than modern cinema. It is soft-focused and visceral. It is not about race or sexuality or masculinity, yet it takes us into those spaces to experience the film rather than just watch. It defies holistic labels and compels engagement with its fragments. You do not see this film for entertainment but to share a journey into darkness to find light.

Kong: Skull Island Review

Kong: Skull Island really wants to be taken seriously, but can’t shake the fact that it feels like a B-movie with a 200 million dollar budget. It may be too early to say this, but King Kong might only be the second-best movie about Apes this year.

Before I Fall Review

By the time Samantha discovers that Juliet dies in every scenario and that she need to save her, she really doesn’t ‘try’ to save her. She always waits until the last 10 minutes before she dies when she had all day to convince her not to commit suicide. So when she finally jumps in front of the truck my first thought was “I don’t think you had to do that”

Logan Review

Unlike previous films, this one keeps it simple and the ‘less is more’ technique delivers the Wolverine film that we have wanted for over a decade and it is disappointing that we finally get it in the final installment.

Get Out Review

Get Out isn’t a film that people have to worried about being lectured to or a film people are afraid to criticize because they don’t want to be called racist. It is a Great Horror/Comedy that exaggerates social issues to get some great laughs and suspense.
