This Month in Review: April 2020

Below are all of the movies I have seen in April 2020, along with a rating on each one.

Beneath Us

Wow. Not many movies leave me speechless. But wow. What a take on our society today. If you’ve ever seen Blackkklansman, you know how powerful that ending is. It leaves the entire movie theater silent, processing what they’ve just seen and how it relates to modern society. The ending of this movie had the sameContinue reading “Beneath Us”

Sonic the Hedgehog

I’m going to start this one off by letting you know that I had zero expectations for this movie; my fiancé was the one who even made me go.  This was one that I was going to skip altogether.  While I found the original drama over the initial trailer hilarious, it didn’t make me wantContinue reading “Sonic the Hedgehog”

Brahms: The Boy 2

               When I first saw the preview for this movie, I was both surprised and confused.  The original, The Boy, was one of my favorite horror films of 2016, in part because of how nicely it ended and how it did not leave much room for a sequel.  I also enjoyed it because (spoiler alert): Continue reading “Brahms: The Boy 2”

The Lodge

If you are a horror fan, you NEED to catch “The Lodge” while it’s still in theaters. It’s still on at Regal Opry and Regal Green Hills for the remainder of the week if you’re in Nashville. “The Lodge” is the same raw, haunting style that you see in “Hereditary” and “Midsommar,” and I’d rankContinue reading “The Lodge”

Onward

This preview just did not really speak to me, but I couldn’t figure out why…. I’m not a huge fan of mythological adventure, the characters aren’t as cute as Pixar’s normal characters, maybe something else, I wasn’t too sure.  But when I got the chance to attend an advance screening of the film, I tookContinue reading “Onward”

Downhill

               I’m not sure you can find this movie in theaters anymore, but that’s okay.  You aren’t missing anything.  With Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as lead characters, I (at first) thought it was very strange that this movie did not get much press.  Quirky preview, (pretty) big names, why aren’t they advertising this asContinue reading “Downhill”

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

With the impressive showing of the South Korean film Parasite at the Oscars and other various awards shows this season, I want to speak this into existence for 2020: Foreign films need to be more mainstream. We are blessed in Nashville to have several theaters that show foreign films on a regular basis, so theyContinue reading “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”
