    King Kong

    ★★★★★

    Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World.”

    In an era when so much of what we see on screen in big Hollywood Blockbuster entertainment is achieved by the pushing of buttons (an admitted oversimplification, but you get what I mean) this iconic 91 year old film impresses all the more. The ingenious, tactile, and meticulous hand made special effects. The sheer scope of the production. The genuine sense of awe it creates. It’s somehow undiminished…

    The Delinquent

    ★★★★

    Upgrade

    "Upgrade" is the R-rated, violent, sci-fi actioner you didn't know you wanted in a Summer Movie season filled with sequels, super heroes and female centric comedies.

    Early in the film, a mechanic (Logan Marshall-Green) and his wife are beaten and robbed...leaving her dead and him paralyzed. He agrees to an untested state-of-the-art surgery that implants into him an artificial intelligence called STEM. It allows him to walk again, but it also gives him enhanced abilities. When the A.I. detects a…
