Whoops. Saw this like a week ago and forgot to review it. But here we go, a little late.
This is by far the best movie I’ve seen about an accountant. Then again, it’s pretty much the only movie I’ve seen about an accountant. And it’s also not so much about an accountant. But still, the best one.
The Accountant stars Ben Affleck as a brilliant accountant who suffers from autism. Some of his work involves some pretty bad people. When one of these people double crosses him and tries to have him killed, he uses a special set of skills originally meant to help him cope with his autism to find those responsible and exact revenge.
There have been a few trailers recently that have been really good, but I just haven’t gotten a chance to post about them. But boy, we need to talk about this one.
Netflix’s most recent original movie shoots to be a Saving Private Ryan or Black Hawk Down. But it misses the mark, and instead gives us some great action but is weak in other aspects.
The Siege at Jadotville is based on a true story involving a group of UN peacekeepers from Ireland who are sent to the Congo during the 1960s. Jamie Dornan takes a break from beating and abusing women in 50 Shades of Grey to lead a bunch of no name and “I know that guy from somewhere” actors with sometimes unintelligible Irish accents. Together they have to fight off a bunch of mercenaries and Congolese rebels to save themselves during a coup.
Come on guys, you couldn’t have spent a little bit more money on making the shark look better?
The Shallows is about a young woman (Blake Lively) who follows in her mother’s footsteps to a little secret piece of surfing paradise. Things don’t go as planned and she ends up being hunted by a very upset shark.
The original movie is my favorite western, so this one had a lot to live up to. But does it?
The Magnificent Seven follows a group of outlaws (led by Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt) who band together to protect a small town from an evil baron who wants the land the town sits on and will stop at nothing to get it.
Well for some reason they remade Ben-Hur, so I guess it is time to look at the best so called “sword and sandals” movies. This is not my favorite genre, as evidenced by the fact that I couldn’t even make a list of 10. Check out the list below and let me know your favorites in the comments.
It seems oddly fitting that one of the last movies of the summer movie season is as mediocre as most movies this summer have been.
Suicide Squad is the newest film in the DC cinematic universe and tells the story of a group of supervillains who are recruited by the US government to help stop a major attack in a way only they can.
