'Patriots Day:' Scenes of chaos that feels exploitative
Posted: January 12, 2017

Not the movie itself, but what director Peter Berg, and in part Mark Wahlberg, are doing feels exploitative, taking tragedies and turning a profit. That being said, “Patriots Day” (opening months after their Deepwater Horizon collaboration) showcases what Berg and his team does best, deliver thrilling scenes of chaos.

'A Monster Calls' touches on bullying, cancer and coming of age
Posted: January 05, 2017

In his first film since Oscar-nominated “The Impossible,” (coincidentally my favorite movie of 2012), J.A. Bayona continues his theme on suffering. Using mixed media of CGI characters, watercolor animation and live action, “A Monster Calls” is an emotional journey, perhaps even a tool for young people to cope with loss. There are many themes that run deep in Patrick Ness’ screenplay, based on a book he helped complete after the author’s own passing. A busy film that touches on bullying, cancer, parental separation and, of course, coming of age. Newcomer MacDougall (“Pan”) is surrounded by grade A supporting talent including Oscar nominee Jones (“Rogue One”), the iconic Weaver (“Chappie”) and the commanding voice behind the monster, Neeson.
