Opinion: “You’re Next” (2011)

Adam Wingard, the man behind The Guest, but also behind the 2017 classic Death Note, became quite popular in 2011 when he released You’re Next, which is a horror home-invasion movie that’d supposedly subvert everything you’d come to expect from a home-invasion film. Critics gave it raving reviews, though audiences weren’t really the biggest fan … Continue reading Opinion: “You’re Next” (2011)

Opinion: “A Quiet Place” (2018)

2018 has been far from stellar; Paradox was terrible, Mute was boring and Black Panther failed to amaze me, just to give you a few examples. I’ve only seen a handful of really good movies this year like Game Night and Annihilation, but now I’m happy to say that I can add another one to … Continue reading Opinion: “A Quiet Place” (2018)

Opinion: “Night of the Living Dead” (1968)

Recently I’ve been really into watching horror classics. Last week I watched The Exorcist, a film that I liked, though it really took its time setting itself up, then I watched Jaws, who doesn’t love that one? And when I saw that the Blu-ray of George A. Romero’s debut film Night of the Living Dead … Continue reading Opinion: “Night of the Living Dead” (1968)

Opinion: “Wonder Woman” (2017)

At its release, Wonder Woman got a lot of praise for numerous things. It was deemed to be the best superhero movie ever by some and others even thought that it had a chance at being nominated for an Oscar. Let’s just say that my expectations were quite high going into this film. Due to … Continue reading Opinion: “Wonder Woman” (2017)

Opinion: “Last Flag Flying” (2017)

Richard Linklater is one of the best working directors today. He’s able to make some incredible films and hasn’t made a bad one in recent memory. He’s shown that he’s able to work in a wide range of genres, from comedies and romance films to straight up dramas and even mix those up to form … Continue reading Opinion: “Last Flag Flying” (2017)

Opinion: “Mute” (2018)

Back in the beginning of 2009, a young director appeared on the film scene with his amazing debut called Moon, a fun and clever film with an amazing performance by Sam Rockwell; it was all around great. Two years later, he released his second film, Source Code, which also was a really well-made film. Another … Continue reading Opinion: “Mute” (2018)

Opinion: “The Shape of Water” (2017)

There are a few things I like about The Shape of Water, one of which is the story. It's a  heartwarming tale about a woman and a fish-man who fall in love, which was all wonderfully captured by Guillermo Del Toro. Guillermo Del Toro has made some fantastic films in his career, that all look … Continue reading Opinion: “The Shape of Water” (2017)

Opinion: “All the Money in the World” (2017)

Ridley Scott has become a hit or miss. This one’s definitely a hit. All the Money In the World stars Michelle Williams as Gail, mother of Paul Getty III, whose grandfather is the richest man in the world. When Paul Getty III gets kidnapped in Italy, his kidnappers demand a lot of money. Everyone automatically … Continue reading Opinion: “All the Money in the World” (2017)

In Bright, we meet a likeable agent played by Will Smith, whose partner is an orc, played by Joel Edgerton. After a night patrol gone wrong, they end up with an elf, a magic wand and a bunch of mythical creators chasing them for that wand. The film has an interesting premise and it also … Continue reading Opinion: “Bright” (2017)

Past weekend, Le Fidèle, whose English title's The Racer and the Jailbird, had its avant première in Brussels, which I was able to attend.
