'Backcountry' (2015) Movie Review

'Backcountry' (2015) Movie Review

As a visual and aural piece of cinema, Backcountry is quite effective, but too much time is dedicated to superfluous scenes that only cause the story to drag rather than be as engaging as the filmmaking itself.

'While We're Young' (2015) Movie Review

'While We're Young' (2015) Movie Review

Noah Baumbach's While We're Young explores a cross-section of cultures as the old and young come together and it's a movie I simply could not connect with and only got progressively annoyed.

'The Overnight' (2015) Movie Review

'The Overnight' (2015) Movie Review

Patrick Brice's The Overnight is a very funny sex comedy about the modern, liberal couple, with a terrific quartet of performers who spend an unforgettable night together.

'Ex Machina' (2015) Movie Review

'Ex Machina' (2015) Movie Review

In a world where science fiction is dominated by artificial intelligence stories, Alex Garland's Ex Machina strips everything down to a quite intelligent and very entertaining sci-fi pulp drama with a trio of tremendous performances.

'Ned Rifle' (2015) Movie Review

'Ned Rifle' (2015) Movie Review

Hal Hartley's Ned Rifle, the end to the trilogy started with 1997's Henry Fool, brings together an excellent ensemble who can deliver deadpan dialogue perfectly, but it ultimately left me a bit cold.

'Love & Mercy' (2015) Movie Review

'Love & Mercy' (2015) Movie Review

Love & Mercy could've been another by the numbers music biopic, but instead uses a unique dual timeline structure to be something much more entertaining and emotionally engaging to show the life of Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson.
