Slow West (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Slow West (2015)

A light-hearted score by Jed Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) punctuates Slow West, first-time director John Maclean’s 84-minute deconstruction of the myth of the frontier. Winner of the grand jury prize in the international dramatic competition at Sundance, the U.K.-New Zealand co-production is a slow burn that is awash in contradictions. Starring Michael Fassbender (“12 Years…

Movie Review: The Caretakers (2014)

“In life, there are many different paths to choose from.

And while you wouldn’t be entirely wrong, you’ve nonetheless been dealt a…

Terminator: Genisys (2015) by The Critical Movie Critics

Movie Review: Terminator Genisys (2015)

Terminator Genisys marks the fifth installment in the beloved franchise but it’s not, unfortunately, made for fans. Or anyone else for that matter. The script, written by Laeta Kalogridis (“Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (whose biggest claim to fame is “Drive Angry”), does as much as it can to bring those uninitiated with the series…
