As far as horror movies go, especially ones adapted from Stephen King’s works, Netflix’s “1922” plays the long-haul as a grim slow-burn thriller that unsettles rather than startles through jump scares as it takes its viewers on a disturbing journey into a man’s hysteria and guilt.

  • Let me start off this review by revealing the following bit of information: I'm a big fan of Stephen Edwin King.
  • First of all, let me say I've heard or read several negatives from different people about the film "Dunkirk," which opened to wide release July 21.
  • Another blockbuster, another attempted franchise starter.

    But instead of just franchises, nowadays studios are clinging to the shared universe concept brought on by Marvel in 2008 with "Iron Man." Personally, it never seemed like a good idea because eventually you'll end up contradicting things and digging a hole too deep to get out of.
  • Tell me if this sounds familiar: a bunch of undead people search for a treasure on an island which can't be found to free them from a curse. Oh, and they can't step on dry land.
  • In a genre favorite to filmmakers and storytellers alike, World War II is a stomping ground for stories, particularly involving the Holocaust. But in a medium where so many of those stories have been told, it's not often we are treated to fresh tales, which is where "The Zookeeper's Wife" comes in.
  • Oh, man. I had so much anticipating for this film.

    And oh, man, is it so much of a let down, to put it politely.

    "The Circle" holds an extremely relevant story to today's world - that of constant connectivity with everyone else around us through technology. On some levels, we're already there. People use their phones, computers, any screen for the majority of their day.
  • Rain Man

    Starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, this Hollywood hit focuses on the relationship between a self-centered man and his brother who is known to be an autistic savant.
  • 'Life' entertains without bringing new stakes
    Space exploration has always been one of the most fascinating things to me. The travel, discovery and seeing new worlds for the first time. While everyone went nuts for like two days over New Horizons reaching Pluto in 2015, I had been following the mission since it launched nine years earlier.
  • As one of Disney's most famous musicals, it'd be hard to find someone who didn't know a song from 1991's "Beauty and the Beast." Whether it be the opening song 'Belle,' Lumière's 'Be Our Guest," or even the titular song 'Beauty and the Beast,' at some point you're likely to have seen at least part of the film.
  • "Manchester" doesn't live up to Oscar success
    In one of the most hyped films before the Oscar season, "Manchester by the Sea" was talked about for months before its release. There are reasons backing this all up, namely the performances. But ultimately, it doesn't strike me as something overachieving of its intentions.
  • "Lion" proves that home is never lost
    Could you imagine being lost and not knowing where you family was?

    Could you imagine being lost in India, 1600 kilometers away from home, not speaking the same language at five years old?
