All the Money in the World

“Money, money, money…must be funny in a rich man’s world.”

(“Money, Money, Money”, ABBA)

American Assassin (2017)

Michael Cuesta’s spy-action-thriller American Assassin is based on a series of novels by Vince Flynn. It relies on a fair number of unbelievable elements, but it makes up for it with a sizzling performance by Michael Keaton as an angry old spy-turned-teacher. 560 more words

Forever My Girl is the poor man's Nicholas Sparks adaptation

There hasn’t been a Nicholas Sparks adaptation on the screen in two years now, but Forever My Girl is the next best/worst thing, arriving just early enough that if you see it right away, you may get the taste out of your mouth before Valentine’s Day. 408 more words

Den of Thieves will rob you of 140 minutes

Den of Thieves is a very particular type of heist movie. While most examples of the genre are content to merely show you a theft, this one wants to actually perpetrate one. 501 more words

The Greatest Showman

At it’s core, The Greatest Showman is about finding where you belong, its about family and accepting the differences in others.

Doesn’t exactly sound like the kind of thing I’d review (seeing as I generally stick to superhero, monster and horror movies), especially with it being a musical (a genre I generally don’t enjoy unless I’m in a theatre watching a play). 709 more words
