    When I saw the trailer for The Witch a few years ago, I was convinced it would be an edgy allegory about religious fanaticism. I was very happy that The Witch played it more straight while keeping those elements intact without sacrificing a scary story to make a point. This is the movie I feared The Witch would be... It is well made on every front but there's no reason for any movie to be so obvious about what it's trying to tell the viewer. Just not a great experience.... Maybe the most predictable movie I've seen in years.

    Cheesy 1980s horror flick with awesome bad guys and a really fun premise. You can tell there were some production issues along the way as it seems sort of scatter-shot throughout... but the awesome 80s music, solid creature effects, and very fun premise make this well worth the watch.

    Scorsese' career seems impossible at this point.  Haunting, devastating, shockingly quiet and constrained, brilliant acted (Garfield gives the best performance of 2016 I've seen) and simply epic. Scorsese is also showing how diverse he is... this is quite simply unlike anything else he has made. It seems unreal that a director can make movies back to back that are so different and yet so completely masterful in their own aims.
