Avid film geek. Love all genres and styles.
The Coen's second film is a hilarious, energetic and colorful comedy about growing up and becoming better.
Nic Cage is magnificent as H.I. Holly Hunter is also really good as Ed, his cop wife. The direction is excellent and the camera work is also well done
Just an all around fun film with great performances, a good story and solid cinematography. A lot of memorable lines and I loved the long opening.
An extremely slow burn of a thriller that goes for broke and is all the better for it. Wan does a great job directing this pretty weak script. His visuals and the actors performance help elevate this slightly above b movie schlock.
It's colorful, violent and ends in blood soaked insanity. Not sure why this film is being marketed as a jumpy, scary movie. It's very slow moving and not very scary. It awards patience with a lot of fun scenes and gory galore. Wan seems to be having a blast with this concept and his growth as a director is clear here.

Pig went against expectation and instead of being an artsy John Wick knock off becomes something more meditative and sincere.
Nicholas Cage is captivating as Rob and is basically in every frame of the picture. Instead of being hammy, he delivers a lived in performance as the quiet and introverted protagonist and truly anchors the film from going into schlocky territory. Alex Wolff also stands out as Amir,…
Add this to the pile of forgettable and useless horror remakes. Some cool camera work and decent performances don't overshadow the ham-fisted script and overstuffed mayhem that ensues. A lot of ideas are crammed into a tight 90 minutes and the film suffers greatly from the tonal imbalance.
Also, for the love of all things sacred, can studios please stop showing us the entire movie in the trailers? Every story beat and every kill was shown in the trailer. Sucked the wind right out of its own sails and made it a slog.
