Not only does Peele impress as a visual stylist, but as an actor’s director as well. The performances in Get Out are incredibly strong, across the board, and left me wanting to see more and more from the three leads (Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, and Lil Rel Howery).
John Wick: Chapter 2 ups the ante by doing a full swan dive into the underground world of assassins that the first John Wick only dipped its toe in. But it does so without sacrificing the streamlined, silent nature of the original.
I’m not going to spoil Split in any way here, which unfortunately means there’s not much I can say. I can tell you the movie is effectively thrilling, entertaining, full of good (if not great) performances, gorgeously shot and framed, and a tad tasteless.
Neighbors 2 is fun. Neighbors 2 is funny. Neighbors 2 is progressive. Neighbors 2 is kind of a mess.

The acting is pretty great all around in I Origins, especially the lead performance. The film-making is cheap and small, but effective for the story that’s being told.

It took me a while to write this review because I was really wrestling with whether I liked The Duke of Burgundy or not.
This movie was a real delight, and I regret not getting to see it before making my Top 10 of 2015 list. I’m fairly certain it would’ve been on there, not just for the excellent performances, but for how truly unique it is as a movie.
Sexy Beast is a real treat. The kind of film where you just don’t know what to expect going into it, and then it continues to defy your expectations at every turn.
