    Crime Story

    Written & directed by Adam Lipsius this film known by a few names stars Richard Dreyfuss and Mira Sorvino. A retired mob boss is robbed and tries to get his money back.

    Once upon a time Richard Dreyfuss was staring in great films, unfortunately that time is long since past. Both the plot and tone of this film are pretty badly done meaning the cast can do little to save the film. Definitely not worth watching even for the biggest Richard Dreyfuss fans.

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    ★★½

    Directed by Adam Wingard this sequel stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown and Rebecca Hall. Godzilla and Kong face off in a big old monster battle.

    If you thought the one thing that monster films were lacking was some hollow earth nonsense then this is the film for you, otherwise you are going to find this film lacking. There is absolutely nothing in the way of character or metaphor to patch the holes between monster face offs. I really need a bit more from films than what is on offer here.

    Directed by Lance Daly this film stars Orlando Bloom, Riley Keough, Michael Pena, Taraki P. Henson and Rob Morrow. A young doctor struggles to find the respect he thinks should come with the job and becomes obsessed with a young female patient.

    This film starts off fairly normally but slowly takes a turn into the dark and creepy as the actions of the protagonist become more sinister. What I like about this film is the subtle understated nature of the…
