    Dumb Money


    DUMB MONEY is a crowd pleasing financial film for the little guy that explores one of the biggest revolutions in Wall Street’s history with clarity & humor. Solid work from the entire ensemble. Less kinetic than Craig Gillespie’s latest movies but still entertaining & illuminating. It’s nowhere near as good as Moneyball or The Social Network or even The Big Short but to take a line from Keith Gill..
    I just like the film. 💎🙌🏼

    The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes


    THE HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS & SNAKES expands on its dark dystopian world with rich costumes. stunning art direction. an epic score & a sense of scale & scope that’s fitting for this prequel about the rise of President Snow. Rachel Zegler is captivating (and gets to show off her incredible singing voice multiple times) & Tom Blyth sells Snow’s moral decay but Viola Davis is the scene stealer. Overlong & the unbalanced story provides more questions than answers but it’s at least better than the Mockingjay films.

    The Creator


    I really admire the scale and behind-the-scenes production of THE CREATOR. But flawed execution renders it a disappointingly typical sci-fi action film with impressive VFX and a shockingly unmemorable Hans Zimmer score. Came so close to hitting the mark for me on multiple occasions but kept barely missing. Pulls from many different inspirations making it feel original but how the story plays out is anything but. Madeleine Yuna Voyles is a wonderful find & the heart of the movie.

    The Promised Land


    THE PROMISED LAND is a robust period epic from Nikolaj Arcel that reunites him with the always incredible Mads Mikkelsen who delivers another quietly powerful performance. Simon Bennebjerg plays one of the year’s most despicable villains. Beautifully shot on a grand scale, it consistently grips you with its high stakes & emotion.
