Movie Reviews: Gold and Fences

Gold is director Stephen Gaghan’s first movie since 2005’s Syriana starring George Clooney and Matt Damon. While that film proved to be an impressive debut, Gold struggles to to make the same impact, despite featuring another committed turn by star Matthew McConaughey.

Movie Reviews: Live By Night and Silence

Live By Night, directed by and starring Ben Affleck, is a gangster drama set against the backdrop of prohibition. While there are moments of greatness here, Affleck seems to struggle with his focus on what exactly the story is, delivering a watchable, albeit muddled, viewing experience.

Movie Reviews: Allied and Arrival

Robert Zemeckis directs Academy Award winners Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard in Allied, a WWII thriller with Pitt and Cotillard as a husband and wife spy team whose relationship is tested by the war. Zemeckis puts together some thrilling action sequences amidst the intrigue, and during some of the slower parts of the film the director is greatly aided by the amazing chemistry of stars Pitt and Cotillard.

Movie Reviews: Inferno and Doctor Strange

Inferno is the third film in the Robert Langdon adventure series, following The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. Director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks return for a surprisingly fun mystery thriller anchored by Hanks and his co-star Felicity Jones.
