  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★★★½

    In Dunkirk, director Christopher Nolan takes us deep into one of the cornerstone moments of World War II in which Allied forces from Great Britain, France, and Belgium are cornered by Nazi Germany. Surrounded by German troops on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, the only way to salvation for nearly half a million soldiers is across the tumultuous English Channel. With Germany mercilessly bombing the beaches and rescue ships by plane, the evacuation to England looks hopeless, but the valor…

    Whiplash

    ★★★★★

    I believe that there’s a desire in all of us to achieve greatness. A deep, internal yearning for importance, respect, and acceptance. We want to be remembered and we want to fulfill a sense of purpose in our lives. For Andrew Nieman (Miles Teller), the central character in the 2014 Best Picture nominated film Whiplash, that desire is to be one of the all-time great jazz drummers. Of course, he knows that accomplishing such a goal will require a firmly…

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★★★

    Amidst the yearly barrage of unimaginative action movies, Edge of Tomorrow is a breath of fresh air. It’s smart, funny, and full of action-packed excitement. It is a definitive summer blockbuster and is one of the best action movies of Tom Cruise’s illustrious career. Based on the graphic novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, Edge of Tomorrow stars Tom Cruise as Major William Cage, who has earned his rank without ever having served a day in combat.…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    Well, sure enough, my opinion did change. My dad convinced me to give the movie another shot before it's pulled out of our local theater tomorrow, so we went and watched it again today (my second viewing, his third). I'm not one who often changes my opinion much after additional viewings, and I hate to sound like a push-over here, but I have to admit that this time I actually kind of loved it. It's as if all of my…
