Movie Review: The Nun (2018)

The Nun, the fifth film in “The Conjuring” Universe, is a hugely flawed and underwhelming horror film that’s both plodding and formulaic. While the film, Corin Hardy’s sophomore directorial effort following 2015’s “The Hallow,” boasts convincing performances from scream queen Taissa Farmiga (“The Final Girls”) and Demián Bichir (“Alien: Covenant”), it fails to leverage its…

Movie Review: Operation Finale (2018)

Chris Weitz, director of “American Pie” and co-writer on last year’s “The Mountain Between Us,” delivers a watchable and important effort in Operation Finale, depicting the capture and extradition of Holocaust mastermind Adolf Eichmann. It’s a well-intentioned take on one of the ugliest personalities of the 20th century. Yet, its middling characterization and preference for…

Movie Review: Searching (2018)

Lives online, lives offline. Activities that only happen because web cameras connect us to an anonymous multitude. What happens online may stay online, or overlap with the “real world.” What happens when a person is one thing on the Internet and another in the outside world?

Movie Review: Three Identical Strangers (2018)

Tim Wardle’s (“One Killer Punch”) investigative documentary Three Identical Strangers traces…

Movie Review: Most Likely to Murder (2018)

Nelson Mandela famously said, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” As Billy (Adam Pally, “The Little Hours”) returns to his hometown for Thanksgiving, in the new comedy Most Likely to Murder, he is confronted with the myriad ways the place…

Movie Review: Hangman (2017)

The cop procedural is a struggling genre, at least as far as film goes. With so much new content provided weekly via television shows, there’s hardly any room to grow. Yet it remains one of the more popular genres viewed at home, and honestly, home is probably the best place to view Hangman, which hardly…

Movie Review: The Last Witness (2018)

The Katyn Massacre was a series of mass executions of Polish nationals carried out by the Soviet secret police in April and May of 1940. Though the Soviet Union claimed that Nazi Germany had orchestrated the slaughter in 1941, it officially acknowledged responsibility for the killings in 1990, after decades of state-sponsored cover-ups. Piotr Szkopiak…
