Our rating: 4/5 stars
Short review: A refreshing look at black geek culture that is set up as a coming-of-age film without the white preppy high school kids who’s main goal is to find a date for prom.
Movie: The Walk
Our rating: 5/5 stars
Short review: Listen this movie isn’t for everyone. No movie is. There are people in this world who don’t like adventures with crazy dreamers and they should not watch this film.
Our rating: 3/5 stars
Short review: Another rehashing of the popular Boy Who Never Grew Up, Pan can make your inner child scream for joy, but your outer adult will pick it apart.
Movie: Pawn Sacrifice
Short review: Pawn Sacrifice tries hard to paint Bobby Fischer as the bad boy of chess and although it falls short of achieving just that it’s still worth the watch.
Short review: Troubling, sad and deeply compelling. This film succeeds on every level: story, performance, music and photography. But the subject and perspective is grim.
Movie: American Ultra
Our rating: 2/5
Short review: American Ultra squanders a cool premise and a very good cast by being utterly unable to decide exactly what kind of film it wants to be.
