It's amazing to me that the new film "Joker" has already stoked such a visceral reaction among fans and critics alike. It will be hated, it will be loved, and there's validity to both sides of the debate. But for a film to incite such strong emotions - good or bad - it must be effectively operating on some level, and for me, it's as unforgettable a film as you'll see all year.
NETFLIX has surprisingly been putting out some of this year's best films, from "Triple Frontier" to "The Dirt," to "See You Yesterday." With the trippy, mind-screwing sci-fi/mystery/crime/thriller "In the Shadow of the Moon," it adds another entry into the fold that deserves serious consideration.
Jennifer Lopez gives a career-defining performance, and Constance Wu cements herself as a leading lady in this layered, hot-and-confident female tour de force.
The world of John Wick exponentially expands in its third chapter, but the more we learn about this organized criminal underworld, the less interesting it, and our hero, becomes.
"See You Yesterday" is a sharp time-travel story that takes on some weighty subject matter...but despite its teenage stars, it is definitely meant for adults.
The new Ted Bundy film "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" is not quite as captivating as its subject, but it's a compelling glimpse into the mind of madness.
The strange but true story that gave us the term "Stockholm Syndrome" is brought to life with some inspired performances, but it ultimately fails to hold the audience captive.
