Angelina Jolie is a good actor, but not a good director. Will this break her streak?
The first one was gleefully O.T.T. Can the sequel top it?
Kirsten Dunst is becoming a reliable creative brand.
Director Ritesh Batra impressed with THE LUNCH BOX, but underwhelmed with THE SENSE OF AN ENDING. His second film of 2017:
D: Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break).
S: John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jack Reynor, Hannah Murray, Anthony Mackie.
Harrowing depiction of police brutality, murder and racism. 143 forceful, unrelenting minutes.
I find Kiyoshi Kurosawa a frustrating filmmaker.
“You a cop?”
Ds: Cary Murnion, Jonathan Millot (Cooties).
S: Dave Bautista, Brittany Snow, Angelic Zambrana, Jeremie Harris, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Arturo Castro.
This would be a pretty dope action movie, if not for the weird racial stuff going on.

Fincher always gets me excited.
D: Marianna Palka (Always Worthy, Good Dick).
S: Jason Ritter, Jaime King, Marianna Palka, Sol Rodriguez, Roger Guenveur Smith.
Looks at the frustrations many women face in family life, but does so in a heavy-handed way.

The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
