Movie Review: #Silence

Two Jesuit priests seek to find their mentor who has disappeared in hostile 17th Century Japan.
Review by Matt Cummings
It can be argued that Director Martin Scorsese has earned the right to make whatever film he wants. His filmography reads like a mini-AFI list. Unfortunately, his 25-year long passion project Silence emerges as an over-wrought, frustrating, and frankly arrogant middle finger while even eroding its own message with logic that makes all the sense to someone who long abandoned his faith.

After the Portguese first arrived on the Japanese mainland in the mid 16th Century, the leader Tokugawa Ieyasu responded by waging a protectionist holy war against priests and their followers. Widespread evictions and persecutions of Japanese Christians are witnessed by the helpless Father Cristovao Ferreira (Liam Neeson), whose plight stirs the conscience of the kind Jesuit Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield). Together with his fellow Jesuit Father Garrpe (Adam Driver), Ferreria's fo…

Watch The @GleasonMovie Q&A With @TeamGleason

Amazon Studios Original Documentary GLEASON Q&A with subjects Steve Gleason, Michel Varisco and director/writer/co-editor Clay Tweel.



On Amazon Prime Video Now!

The hit documentary from the 2016 Sundance Film Festival goes inside the life of Steve Gleason, the former New Orleans Saints defensive back who, at the age of 34, was diagnosed with ALS and given a life expectancy of two to five years. Weeks later, Gleason found out his wife, Michel, was expecting their first child. A video journal that began as a gift for his unborn son expands to chronicle Steve’s determination to get his relationships in order, build a foundation to provide other ALS patients with purpose, and adapt to his declining physical condition—utilizing medical technologies that offer the means to live as fully as possible.

Movie Review: #LiveByNight

A Prohibition-era gangster battles other organized crime bosses while trying to protect his burgeoning business and family.
Review by Matt Cummings
If the dozens of trailers for Live By Night convinced you of its supposed merits, you weren't alone. I arrived my screening ready to pin a medal on it and anoint it as the new Godfather, a tall order in hindsight. But it's just another passable but utterly forgettable tale, infused with too many characters who don't have time to shine beyond their fractured existences, and led by an anti-hero who really isn't one.

As Prohibition Chicago shudders under the weight of a monumental gangster blood bath, the tough-minded but opportunistic Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck) has other plans: he wants the hardheaded Emma (Sienna Miller) who's currently dating the much older mob boss Albert White (Robert Glenister) and the chance to merely rob banks and make his money without interference from the real gangs. But when he's ratte…

Movie Review: #MonsterTrucks

Super fun!

Rama is back.

“Monster Trucks” is one of those movies where you may not start out having much expectation about it but boy it proves you wrong. It’s just a good old fashioned super fun action adventure that the entire family can enjoy. The concept may be a bit quirky, I admit, but if the kids laugh and they smile and their parents giggle, I think it’s fair to say that “Monster Trucks” does exactly what it’s supposed to do.

Directed by the guy who gave us “Ice Age,” “Robots,” and “Epic,” “Monster Trucks” is about a high school senior named Tripp (Lucas Till) who builds his own truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars. A nearby oil-drilling site’s accident causes subterranean creatures to surface, two get caught by the greedy corporation while one escapes to the junkyard where Tripp works. Tripp encounters the new friend, names him Creech and turns out, Creech has the need for speed.

I think “Monster Trucks” is the most exciting and hilarious feel-good family movie since D…

Movie Review: The Bye Bye Man

Wave bye-bye to 90 minutes of your precious time.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Though a booming surplus in the 1980s, horror movie icons have becoming a scarce commodity in recent years. The glut of villains such as Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Chucky, Leatherface, Pinhead and the Tall Man never really found a second generation in the decades since. Ghostface from Scream—more a title than a character, anyway—was the closest thing to come out of the ‘90s. The Aughts had a bit more luck, at least in the form of The Ring’s Samara and Saw’s Jigsaw, but even then, it wasn’t quite the same as the old days. Now, in the present day, horror shingle Blumhouse is breaking their backs trying to generate the next big icon, but the likes of Doris Zander and Bughuul aren’t quite sticking the way they intend them to.

I bring this up because The Bye Bye Man feels like a very self-conscious attempt at filling that void. Its titular monster, a clawed, hooded specter (he sort of resembles a…

Movie Review: #PATRIOTSDAYMOVIE

Vigorous, powerful, and deeply moving
Rama deliver another great review.

Patriots Day is a perfectly accurate depiction of one of the most harrowing and courageous weeks in U.S. history. Everybody involved in this movie has done the true story and the survivors justice, they approach it with immense respect so much so that the result is a vigorous, powerful, and deeply moving film that’s part procedural part thriller with all around great performances.

Scripted by Peter Berg, Matt Cook and Joshua Zetumer, directed by Peter Berg, the story focuses on the Boston marathon bombing attack in spring 2013 and the aftermath of that unspeakable tragedy. Mark Wahlberg plays police sergeant Tommy Saunders who joins the first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the people responsible. Kevin Bacon plays special agent Richard Deslauriers, John Goodman plays commissioner Ed Davis, J.K. Simmons plays Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese, and Michelle Monaghan plays nurse Carol…

Movie Review: Neruda

Biopic folds reality into fantasy.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
In 1948 Chile, famed poet and senator Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) has made major political waves. An outspoken man-of-the-people communist, Neruda is not one to shy away from espousing his beliefs to power, making some powerful enemies in the process. This penchant for fierce candidness results in a warrant being issued for his arrest, sending him into hiding alongside his loyal wife Delia (Mercedes Morán) and aided by a vast network of loyalists. Hot on his trail is an obsessive policeman (Gael Garcia Bernal) who despises Neruda for all that he symbolizes.


The setup for Neruda, directed by Pablo Larraín (whose Jackie, another unconventional biopic, is also in theaters), sounds like something on par with The Fugitive, with a hunted man just barely keeping one step ahead of the determined lawman out to bring him in. Yet Neruda is hardly a thriller of that ilk. Never does it leave the audience breathless with anxiety over Neruda…
