Leave No Trace (2018)
Dir. Debra Granik
Despite its PG rating, Leave No Trace is not a film for kids. This film is the slowest burning punch my heart has ever had to endure.
We follow a father-daughter team living off the grid in the wilderness. Leave No Trace tasked with the tough job of depicting a man after returning from war. The two leads are wonderful and believable. The only real drawback, however, is that the film is rather slow, so I wouldnt recommend a watch if tired. If it’s playing near you, I would definitely recommend. •

No Tell Motel (2012) ♥♥
First word to come to mind for describing this film is "meh". I typed 'full scary movie' into YouTube and this one came up so I downloaded it to watch while I was offline. If you're willing to sit through the typical ~group of friends stop at a convenience store in a creepy town during a road trip and subsequently break down a minute later~ it's not a total waste of time. Some pretty interesting causes of death and not too much overdone gore. Only rating two because of the heroine dude and his brother dying. Fuck those dudes.

Today I am happy to share with all of my friends and family a new website that my wife and I created: @thetiltreviews.
While the reviews all are mine, my wife @jmpalafox
does all the aesthetics, pictures, web design, and editing aspects. She basically runs the kitchen and I supply the food! We are so excited to share with you this creation of ours. Please spread the word and comment on the reviews if you disagree or have any thoughts! The purpose of our website is to generate discussion, so if you don’t agree with me, then tell me why. 😃
I saw a lot of promotion for this movie, so I was really interested when it arrived and I thought it was pretty good. Maybe a little over hyped, but very good. It's about five different characters, some larger than life, who happen to come together because of an unfortunate event. The story is told in a Quentin Tarantino style where you follow one character's story to a certain point and then it jumps to what brought another character to that same point. I can see some saying that type of storytelling feels unnecessary, but I found it to work in the story's favor. The characters are cartoonish, but they need to be for the crazy world this takes place, wherein a gangster whose fashion is those silk Asian shirts is kidnapping women and selling their organs. He's using the aid of a disgraced Mexican wrestler who is not only having an identity crisis, but his girlfriend is pregnant. Meanwhile, two excons, one is a sensitive man with a svwastica tattoo on his face have to kidnap the pregnant girlfriend for her kidney which would be going to her birth mother and father who have never met her. There's a lot going on, but you get to know each one, so as the stories are told, you become invested and I was bummed when someone's segment would end. There's some comedy thrown in the mix, nothing that would make you burst out laughing, but definitely chuckle worthy. It's not out of place and keeps the film energetic. There is quite a few instances of great gory special effects that are pretty disturbing and impressive. It's a really entertaining film, but one I think I'd only be able to watch from time to time. Something about it feels a little low key and I think for me it would have been spending more time with the villain. #nowwatching #nowplaying #lowlife #ryanprows #nickimicheaux #ricardoadamzarate #jonoswald #shayeogbonna #ifcmidnight #shoutfactory #screamfactory #crime #drama #comedy #bluray #bluraycollection #moviereview #moviecritic #filmreview #filmcritic #cinephile #2017 #goonreviewslowlife

I will forward this by saying that out of the DCCU I’ve only seen Man of Steel and Wonder Woman, and I’m a massive MCU fan, but still... Justice League is just as good as the first Avengers, Steppenwolf notwithstanding. That was a damn good film with damn good comedy and absolutely perfect casting from Commissioner Gordon to Barry Allen to Batman himself. Absolutely wonderful film, good character and relationship building, touching moments, and just a solid damn film. Steppenwolf may have been a villain I never took as serious threat, but besides that this film was absolutely wonderful. Would definitely recommend. #justiceleague #justiceleaguemovie #batman #avengers #theflash #filmreview
RED SPARROW movie review:
RED SPARROW is an adaptation of Jason Matthews' spy thriller novel of the same name, and it stars Jennier Lawrence and Joel Edgerton, who play play two spies, and as you know it, fall in love.
With the positives first, Jennifer Lawrence's performance as Dominoka Egorova, a ballerina turned spy, is incredible, in this film she's directed to do things she hasn't done before, like nudity and hard brutal violence, however unfortunately in the film she doesn't really have a lot of fight scenes, and in a very disturbing of her getting raped, instead of fighting back she is saved by the male character. She gives an extremely committed performance, and is easily the best part of the movie, and in some ways reminds me of Rooney Mara's character in the American remake of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Besides Jennifer Lawrence's great performance, the movie really falls flat on its face, with a long runtime of 140 minutes and slow pacing, and while I don't have any problems with extreme blood and violence in films, but in RED SPARROW'S case, the over-reliance of that just comes across unnecessary and downright disturbing which i understand is the point of the story, but it doesn't feel like violence for the sake of servicing the story, but violence just for the sake of being violent and throwing blood and Gore in your face, and it just doesn't even feel disturbing in the right way like THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, but instead disturbing in a way where you're thinking, "Why am I watching this? What am I supposed to get out of this?" The film also suffers from a convaluted story filled with multiple subplots with some characters in one place with their own plans and others in a different place with also different plans and the film struggles jumping off from one storyline to other, and even in a 140 minutes runtime it just simply doesn't work, and quite honestly, makes the movie very BORING with really not enough substance to appreciate, and it is disappointing to see a spy thriller being boring, seeing how that is one of the most exciting genres ever created.
Film Review: Ocean’s 8
Directed by Gary Ross, Ocean’s 8 is a surprisingly entertaining but forgettable film.
The cast are the standout as every character brings something to the heist, although aren’t treated equally. Sandra Bullock plays Debby Ocean as lead and I liked her performance though wasn’t outstanding. I especially love one of the first scenes when Ocean goes on a “shopping” spree. Her chemistry with Cate Blanchett was great, although they’re outshone by Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter imo. These two add some great humour into the film, and they steal the scenes they appear in. It’s great to see Sarah Paulson do something different than AHS TV and her character was fun to watch. I was pleasantly surprised with Rihanna’s performance as she’s not primarily an actress but did well in her small role. And she was GORGEOUS in that red dress! Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina unfortunately didn’t get as much screentime as the others, so while they had key scenes, their characters were kinda just added along for their niche skills.
The plot was interesting enough and I enjoyed the twist. However, the stakes didn’t seem very high and any problems they had were resolved in 30 seconds (a little too perfect). The film is more interesting during the heist but in the third act, James Cordon didn’t work. He felt like himself rather than his character, someone else could’ve been cast. Also Debby Ocean’s subplot was a bit forced.
With Steven Soderbergh as a producer, it definitely felt like Ross has tried to make a Soderbergh heist film. I saw Logan Lucky earlier this year, and Ocean’s 8 is very similar in the way it’s structured (just set in the Met instead). It’s not bad but doesn’t add anything new to the heist genre. As a fan of the Met Gala, it was cool to see the inside of the gala and BTW the costumes and outfits were on point! Every member had their distinct style and shoutout to Kim K, as the celeb cameos were cool to spot!
The main issue with Ocean’s 8 is that while I had a great time seeing it, it wasn’t particularly memorable/special besides from the outfits and cast. Still worth a watch for a good time!

Crítica: The Snowman (2017)
Director: Tomas Alfredson.
🎬 Pocas películas suelen ser tan malas que me disgustan. The Snowman es una nauseabunda adaptación de una novela decente. Un desastre en producción que no tiene arreglos y nunca debió ser hecha.
Acá te brindamos parte de nuestra reseña:
“Cuando vi The Snowman me sentí enormemente traicionado. Sentí tanto disgusto por la película que me limité a dejar que pasara un tiempo para poder escribir sobre la misma en un modo mucho más objetivo. Pero a veces el tiempo no es suficiente para borrar aquello que ha sido tallado de forma irreversible. Ese desastre impreso en la memoria no puede ser considerado como otra cosa que una desafortunada propuesta que nadie supervisó. O peor aún sería que alguien coherente quiso revelar al público lo que es una película sin sentido. Hoy en día sabemos qué ocurrió acá porque fue tan notorio el estreno que todos quisimos encontrar las razones de semejante bodrio. Una pérdida de dominio de la producción y un estreno apurado hacen que The Snowman sea la vergüenza de un director que no merece algo así.
No voy a describir lo que el libro en el que está basada The Snowman presenta como una trama. Acá estamos refiriéndonos a una adaptación inconcebible de una historia bastante típica. Un detective con métodos inusuales se encuentra investigando una desaparición y empieza a sospechar del resurgimiento de un asesino en serie. Junto a una agente curiosa....”.

Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) lives in his uncle’s garage with his fiancé Detroit (Tessa Thompson) as they struggle to make ends meet. Cassius finds little success working tirelessly on commission and receives a bit of advice that changes his life forever. Langston (Danny Glover), proposes that Cassius uses his “white voice” to make his calls. After consideration Cassius attempts Langston’s approach and is more successful than he could have imagined.
Much like his character Andre Logan King in Jordan Peele’s Get Out (2017) Stanfield plays a timid mild mannered man that feels out of place in the world he lives in. After making Power Caller at his firm Cassius finds himself among the very people he and his coworkers swore to unite against. The complexity of his own success and fighting against a system that holds others down is felt on the performance of Stanfield as he struggles with his relationships and moving up in the firm beautifully.
Comedy is a brilliant way to convey a message. Humor is accessible to most and making people laugh is an open door to bringing up real issues in a light hearted yet serious form. Sorry to Bother You uses humor to show the financial tribulations that hard working Americans endure to put food on the table as the wealthy use selfish tactics to increase their profit margin.

📌My Rating: 6/10.
It is a canadian comedy about Ben and Catherine, two respected scientists leave their jobs to conduct an experiment into human identity. They aim to raise three children contrarily to their genetic predispositions, to prove the ultimate power of nurture over nature.
I picked this film right away after saw Toni Collette's name, so I didnt know this is a comedy film until the end...even they said it is a mature comedy...still I didn't laugh, and until now if I think about it, there's nothing amusing.
I was attracted also with the story's idea to prove nurture can win over nature and I was still excited up until they started the experiement and explained what they expected with these children in their future. Unfortunately the movement of the movie wasn't going anywhere and felt bland more and more, they tried to put some crises on it but those crises did nothing. The climax I think was when the children ran away but it didn't give me any feeling also.
The film was also predictable, my predictions were correct.
What help this movie was the actors, they performances were great.
It is upsetting to see the story wasn't inline with the talents.

Director: Ryan Coogler
Brief Synopsis: The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as a trainer and mentor to Adonis Johnson, the son of his late friend and former rival Apollo Creed.
Review: Creed is easily one of the best films I've ever seen, it's also one of my all time favourites films. Creed is a fresh, innovative and unique film that perfectly captures the world of boxing and also perfectly pays great homage to the rocky franchise (creed is a rocky spin-off film). Before seeing this film in theaters, I hadn't seen any of the previous rocky films so I went in with a fresh slate, this brings me to my first positive about this film. Creed is a film where you can walk in fresh/knowing nothing about the film and you're guaranteed to have a fun time, this was the case with me and now I really adore this film. One of the film strongest elements is definitely the cinematography, the way the film is shot perfectly invests you into the film's Philadelphia setting, the camerawork also captures some of the gritty and upsetting elements that you might experience when moving to a brand new/unknown location. The cast is amazing in this film, every character was perfectly cast. Michael B. Jordan is amazing as the film's main protagonist 'Adonis Johnson Creed', Jordan uses so much emotion, he also looks like he's having fun playing this character and his performance shows why he's one of the best actors working today. Sylvester Stallone returns as the now iconic heavyweight champion 'Rocky Balboa' and he is again perfectly cast. It is evident in his performance that he isn't just doing this film for money, he is doing this film because he is so invested in this character. I also really loved Tessa Thompson in this film, she plays Adonis' girlfriend in this film and she is also a pivotal character in this film. Thompson gives such a energetic and great performance and after watching this film, she is for sure one of my favourite actresses working today. The characters in this film are so layered and developed, you really feel for them and (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
Bad horror movies are becoming more and more prominent nowadays, but this one is especially terrible. The establishing shot attempts to create the same feeling as It Follows with a master shot, but it's completely ruined by its horrifyingly terrible lighting. It's all over saturated, with an attempt at subverting expectations, but it just comes off as lazy. Through this scene, everything bad about this film is displayed, including terrible lighting, horrible acting, boring cinematography, jarring CGI (not in a good way), and childish storytelling. The way this film tells its story is so convoluted, and it's impossible to even be semi-attached to anything that's happening. This is mainly due to the rules that follow the Bye Bye Man's rules, and how dumb people would have to be to actually carry on this legend. Along with a terrible story, it also has awful scares, mainly relying on jump scares. None of these scares are in any shape or form scary, it just comes off as lazy. Its score is completely consistent in its quality, which is awful. It sounds like the composers just pulled it off of a stock music site, relying on cliche violin tracks, along with bass boosts for jump scares. It is funny at parts, and none of it is intentional. This hilarity derives from the awful acting that floods throughout. The main characters are directly pulled from the "How to Make a Terrible Horror Film" manual that everyone seems to be pulling from nowadays, but this isn't the main source of humor. The other source is its awful script, because these characters sound like they've just landed on Earth, and they are learning English for the first time. People just randomly pull out memories that have to do with character development, and everyone responds with a "Oh yeah, I remember that". Everything feels so contrived, allowing for its serious tone to be easily taken as humorous. I would recommend it for its unintentional hilarity, but there's so much boring filler that it might not be worth it. 1/10 #filmreview #sobaditsgood
With the World Cup all wrapped up it's time to get back to catching up on #Mikes52FilmChallenge
so Friday I chalked up 23 in the form of The House and tonight an Arya-free evening meant we could pop out to the flicks and see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, becoming number 24 on the list.
Sadly both were disappointing. The House just wasn't as funny as it should have been given the calibre of comedic talent involved. There was the odd chortle but I don't think there was a single belly laugh as has been elicited from me by Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler on many previous occasions.
As for the latest in the JP franchise, it was ok but nowhere near the standard of the original, nor the action-packed, nonsensical fun of the 2015 reboot. The writing felt lazy, it was tonaly confused lacked the sense of scale and wonder of the previous installments. Still, Chris Pratt does at least have a nice audition tape now for his bid to take on the Indiana Jones mantle should Lucasfilm/Disney choose to reboot that franchise.
Both served their purpose in passing the time but neither managed to engage me. 4/10 for The House and 5/10 for JW:FK

"E.T. … phone home" Så fortsätter vi med listan och självklart det här är en av mina favoritfilmer, barndomsfilmer som inspirera mig. Det här är en av Spielbergs största stunder. Filmen "E.T. the extra-terrestrial", äventyr, drama, sci-fiction och gripande storfilm om en utomjording som tas hand om av en mänsklig familj.
Omslagbilden till E.T. är ikonisk. Alla känner till den och det är inte underligt att det blev symbolen för Spielbergs produktionsbolag Amblin Entertainment. Det här är även Spielbergs mest personliga film. Spielberg hämtar erfarenheter från sin egen barndom är ingen hemlighet.
Hans föräldrar skilde sig och Elliots frånvarande pappa är en drivkraft i filmen. Elliotts mammas ansikte är det enda som syns i bild av alla vuxna i huvuddelen av filmen, vilket tydligt visar att det är barnens perspektiv som visas.
Det är först mot slutet som Peter Coyotes karaktärs ansikte visas och då när han anpassar sig till Elliots utgångsläge. Lägg märke till att alla vuxna är namnlösa utom Elliotts mamma.
E.T. är ett mästerverk i sci-fi-genren”trots” att det är en barnfilm. Teman som vänskap, familjerelationer och att hantera känslan av ensamhet är universella och E.T. träffar mitt i prick på alla.
Det här magi och underbar sorglig, fin film. Barnen som Drew Barrymore Henry Thomas och Robert Macnaughton gör bra roller. Finns en scen där Drew Barrymore gråter på riktigt för hon trodde att E.T. var en levande varelse.
Jag minns när jag var liten hade vi en E.T. leksak som jag trodde att den rörde sig eller levde. Om man gilla Spielberg filmer är det här ett måste, se på "The Strange Things" som inspirera sig mycket till den här filmen. #ettheextraterrestrial #movies #movielover #spielberg #spielbergmovies #stevenspielberg #pics

Skyscraper is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thunder (‘Dodgeball’, ‘We’re The Millers’), and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the pair also working together on 2016’s ‘Central Intelligence’. Johnson plays Will Sawyer, a security expert who is headhunted by visionary billionaire Zhao Long Ji (Chin Han) to assess the security on his latest project; the world’s tallest skyscraper. But there is trouble ahead.
Skyscraper is a homage to films such as ‘Die Hard’, ‘The Towering Inferno’, and there’s even a nod to ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol’. The film will likely not go down in history in the same league as those two classics though and is slightly more far-fetched, but then you knew that already, didn’t you? Could a man really jump from a crane into a building? The skyscraper is also ridiculously tall and make-believe, but the effects are well done. Film-goers with a phobia of heights for example may wish to look away at particular moments.
It’s a film starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, so you should know exactly what to expect. Some entertaining action pieces and heroics, bits of cringeworthy dialogue and the odd scene that doesn’t really work, in this case a scene on a rickety bridge that doesn’t seem to flow well at all. If you go in with moderate expectations you’ll get exactly what you knew you were going to get from Skyscraper. Throw in some novelty futuristic tech complete with mirror illusions, and you’ve got yourself a decent popcorn flick.

Terminando con la trilogía de terror de A24 tenemos a Hereditary, una obra maestra dirigida por Ari Aster(en su debut cinematográfico).
Otra caso en la saga de “la audiencia no obtiene lo que estaba buscando”, esta película causó mucha confusión este año por su recepción, por un lado los críticos la amaban y la comparaban con El Exorcista(una comparación innecesaria) y por el otro, la audiencia la odiaba, se reían en plena función y su baja puntuación en Cinemascore dió mucho de que hablar. La anteriormente mencionada comparación con El Exorcista muestra cómo los críticos, en su búsqueda de evitar spoilers suelen colocar referencias que solo llegan a desviar a la audiencia y dañan la experiencia de la película, especialmente en este caso ya que no tienen nada en común entre ellas.
Hereditary trata con temas como enfermedades mentales, la lucha constante qué hay detrás y cómo pueden llegar a tomar posesión de nuestras almas y controlar la vida de las personas que más amamos.
Con una historia digna de nuestra atención, extraordinarias actuaciones de parte de todo el elenco y un manejo de cámara estupendo, esta película cementa el gran futuro del cine de horror independiente y nos recuerda que los horrores más escalofriantes están en frente de nosotros, solo hay que abrir nuestra mente y pensar un poco más allá para verlos.
Rating: 😱😱😱😱😱 (5 de 5)

22 Jump Street (2014)
Although they made their way through high school successfully, an investigation at a local college brings big changes for undercover officers Jenko and Schmidt. When Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art-major scene, both men begin to question their partnership. Not only do they have to crack the case, but now the two overgrown adolescents must learn to behave like adults.
22 Jump Street was just as good as 21 Jump Street - if not funnier!! Again the comedy may not be to everyone's taste, but I enjoyed it! It may not be the funniest film I've ever seen, but it is a lot of fun and highly entertaining!
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill again were excellent as Jenko and Schmidt! They work so well together and are a joy to watch! They both kept me highly entertained! The "My name is Jeff' moment is still hilariously funny so matter how many times I watch it!!! A must watch!

Leave No Trace, directed by Debra Granik, is a deeply moving story about a dad and his daughter living isolated from society in the forests of public parks. The quietness of this film enhances the emotional connection between the father, the daughter, and the audience. It’s a profound example of how our tragedies stay close to us when we often find them too harsh to face, and the lengths we go to shelter our loved ones from the world that is capable of taking away so much from us. Very true, simple, and realistic storytelling accompanied by ethereal cinematography, phenomenal acting from both Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie, and probably a lot of tears. So far, one of my favorite films this year.
If anything, Jeff VanderMeer's novel "Annihilation" proves that Alex Garland's film is a modern science fiction masterpiece. Because the book is even more convoluted, bizarre, weird, awkward and downright difficult. Yes, it sucks you in from the first pages, but somewhere in the middle you come to the point where you realize that you are borderline lost. Film, which takes only 25% of the book concentrates on the visual representation, whereas book deals with emotional hurricane that the main hero goes through. And no, film is not faithful to the book. It is just a different story altogether, which actually makes it more understandable. I would have probably given up on the book have I not seen the film. In any case, I think the book combined with film will make a very beautiful collector's item for any sci-fi fan. For my full review of the film visit KINO-AZ.COM or click link in bio.

Control is a clunky psychological thriller that gets away with feeling realistic by the skin of its teeth thanks to four terrific actors who are so good that they somewhat cloak the incredibly silly narrative. Built around a high concept psychiatry experiment, Ray Liotta plays a vicious career criminal psychopath who is recruited into a secret government program by hotshot Doctor Willem Dafoe. Dodgy mood altering pharmacology is used to try and augment Liotta’s antisocial, violent behaviour and increase empathy levels, thus making him a productive and well adjusted member of society. It seems to work at first, he gets a steady job and meets a nice girl (Michelle Rodriguez cast wonderfully against type). But demons catch up with al of us, and the drugs start having side effects, which complicate the whole thing. Liotta is combustible in the role and gives it his all, he has few genuine lead roles but whenever they throw him one he always shines. Dafoe is incapable of a false note and makes his character work, while Irish veteran Stephen Rea makes creepy work of Dafoe’s sinister superior doctor. They’re all great, it’s just the story that falls into silly territory, especially with a huge WTF twist right at the end that takes the wind right out of the film’s sails and feels completely unwarranted. Come for the actors, stay awhile for the actors, make of the script what you will.
John Wick: Chapter 2 is a 2017 American neo-noir action thriller film ( what a wonderful genre and it does not get better,John wick has taken the noir to extra hardcore level) directed by Chad Stahelski, who also directed the 1st chapter and The Crow and written by Derek Kolstad. In the second installment of the John Wick film series, John wick seems not to get his retirement, after all his wife Helen is dead, and everything is against him and if you wish to stay alive, stay the hell away from him. The truth is I have become a fan of John Wick, and all I can do is praise the whole team, especially the Keanu Reeves, who has risen higher than ever.
John wick 2 is an adrenaline rush, and it's not about splashing blood, a great decision. The blood rushes through your veins and heart get excited when you are in John Wick's world.
Let me tell you about the soundtrack , it's so good.Tyler Bates created something epic here, he had also created music for 300, Watchmen. Music and movie is a great combo in JW 2, and when John gets in his John Wick mode, his theme music, it's just pure heaven, you can just forget the world !! I hope you would enjoy the movie, I have enjoyed a little bit too much. 🔫🔫🔫 #filmreview #cinephile #johnwick #jognwick2 #johnwick #moviereview #movie #soundtrack #tylerbatesmusic #filmreview #film #cinema #filmreview #cinematography #filmgeek

Sorry to Bother You (2018)
This movie was even more bonkers than I thought it would be, and I was expecting it to be pretty bonkers. I won't say too much because this film is best seen with no idea of what to expect, but I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Having had two days to process, I still am not totally sure if I liked it or hated it. I will say that what nudity there was seemed totally unnecessary, and there were quite a few threads that got dropped or didn't really need to be there in the first place because there were SO MANY things going on.
Overall, it's a crazy film for our crazy times, Tessa Thompson was flawless as always, and my huge crush on Steven Yeun continues to grow.
If you haven't seen this, definitely do, and if you have comment/DM me, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
