Babylon Movie Review
Prepare yourself for a wild ride with the “wild child.” Outside of the very beginning, where you’re in the middle of a party, a circus, a strip club, orgy or a masquerade ball, (well, all of those at once), the three hour and nine-minute time the movie stretches out to be, won’t be felt. I say this because it isn’t necessary for the opening scene to be so long, even though it features an elephant, an animal I love very much. It’s a good scene, introducing essential characters, but enough already is what will run through your head. You’ll get to know those who are willing to drink themselves into a stupor and those who are more levelheaded.
The Menu Movie Review
“The Menu” is categorized as a comedy, thriller and horror. I’m not sure “Horror” is the correct way to describe it, but the other two genres are spot on. What’s done well is how quickly you get to know the two main characters, Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Tyler (Nicholas Hoult). You’re then left to figure out how the rest of the cast fits into their story. Read more
Causeway Movie Review
Jennifer Lawrence is the absolute best thing about this movie. She gives it balance and ties you to a storyline that often goes off the rails when you need it to be straight with you. That said, her performances in “Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Hunger Games” and “American Hustle” proves she knows how to give what it takes to hold an audience. She’ll do that here, too, as Lynsey. Lynsey was involved in an incident in Afghanistan that gave her a severe brain injury. The damage also left her with post-traumatic stress disorder. PTSD is a condition triggered by a horrifying event. The brain of the person who suffers from this disorder causes flashbacks, severe anxiety, physical difficulties and depression.
At the film’s beginning, we see Lynsey in recovery so she can get back to who she once was. She hopes her doctor will allow her to redeploy when she’s completely healed.
