Song to Song

Malick has a distinct eye and his visuals are unique and interesting....His knack for creating the electric sexual undercurrent throughout the film should be commended. While we rarely see an actual lovemaking scene, the smallest of glances and touches ignite the screen.

Léon: The Professional
Allison Rose | Jul 10, 2017
Besson’s voice is definitely unique and distinct in everything he writes and directs. His decidedly French influence is obvious in everything from angles and costumes to the music chosen for his films’ soundtracks. Leon: The Professional is no different, which is part of what makes it such a classic movie loved by audiences around the world.
Fate of The Furious
People critical that the series should have ended with number seven will be pleasantly surprised by this film. Fate of the Furious is great fun throughout the entire movie. It gives audiences all the thrills and stunts they are looking for in a Fast and Furious film and keeps pushing the boundaries of what you can do with cars (and physics).
The Fifth Element
To-date, The Fifth Element, is hands down Luc Besson’s most accomplished film. The story is extremely compelling and interesting, the cast blends perfectly with the amazing sets and action, and even though it had a mixed reception when it opened in 1997 it has come to be loved the world over.
Smurfs: The Lost Village
The Dolby Atmos track is truly where Smurfs: The Lost Village shines. Audio moves effortlessly from one speaker to another and travels throughout the room. It really feels like you are transported into the audio-visual space of the Smurfs.

The cast is one of the gems of Their Finest. Arterton combines an inner strength with an outward vulnerability and naiveté to create the perfect Catrin. She is sweet and mild but possesses a fire hidden underneath the surface that she doesn’t even realize she has.
The Big Sick
Allison Rose | Jul 07, 2017
The sincerity of the tale and the unexpected success of Nanjiani as the male lead make The Big Sick tantalizing and infectiously (pun intended) appealing. In a world full of explosions and car chases, this movie offers something different and executes it nicely.
The Belko Experiment
Nathan M Rose | Jul 05, 2017
While The Belko Experiment will never be anything more than a cult classic film it provides a nice escape for its runtime of 88 minutes. James Gunn and director Greg McLean have created a fun film that anyone who works in the corporate world should see at least once in their life.
