A Fighting Man

An innovative drama that employs a shifting chronology to great effect. I don't think I've seen one like it. 3.5/5

The Man from Earth

Such an interesting thought experiment. Is it truth or fiction? And does the end reveal the answer? 3.5/5

The Normal Heart

I can't believe I'm saying this, but this would have been near perfect if a gay actor had replaced Ruffalo in the lead. I normally never feel that way, especially with an actor as talented as Ruffalo is, but his performance rang false to me, and I found myself frequently thinking that I wished someone else led this movie. There were so many strong performances that it just stuck out to me. He wasn't bad, not at all, just... not right. 4/5

Yellowbrickroad

This horror flick did unsettle me greatly but there's no substance to it, certainly no character development. I have to give it a star for creeping me out so much, but ultimately I don't know what I saw or why I saw it. Disappointing. 2/5

Need for Speed

This is action perfection - it looks & feels exactly like the game did & Aaron Paul was note-perfect. Loved it! 5/5

The Double

Ayoade's fantastical & sensory-rich black dramedy is unique & so refreshing. I adored everything about this. 4.5/5

RoboCop

HORRIBLE remake that has none of the sense or message of the original. This was painful to watch, utter useless. 2/5
