A young man drafted into South Africa’s military, but he knows he is different and must keep himself hidden. However, when another recruit develops an intimate relationship with them, they are now both in danger
The rookies, unfortunately may be a front runner for the razzies next year with some of the worst dubbing I have ever seen. Yet I’m not surprised to see Milla Jovovich do a movie like this as it is rare for me to find her a likeable actor. The roles that are tailor made for her always seem so bland and lacking personality, for instance, how most people perceive Kristen Stewart is how I perceive Milla.
THE MAURITANIAN is such a beautiful work of cinema that needs to be seen on the big screen, even though we live in a pandemic era. If you can see this safely on the big screen you need to. As the whole cast is stellar from Jodie Foster to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Oscar Isaac would be part of the Oscar nomination for Best Actor if The Letter Room was a full feature length movie, unfortunately it’s not. However, he still gives a really fine performance and I personally have been following his career since the phenomenal Ex Machina. This is no exception he really delivers no matter what the situation is(we can forget Sucker Punch).
French Exit is the perfect surprise for the first quarter of 2021, one of those rare movies that was released this early in the year, that could get its leading actress an Oscar Win at least a nomination because Michelle Pfeiffer is a phenomenal firecracker in French Exit that may go down as one of her best performances.

Crisis is a really strong outing for Gary Oldman and Armie Hammer and Michelle Rodriguez. However, it really sucks for everyone involved with the real life crisis that Mr. Hammer is having that got this one to go straight to VOD platforms. It would have made a reasonable dent at the box office with all the great actors involved including the always reliable Greg Kinnear.
City of Lies is the perfect detective journalism film for every fan of the East coast vs West Coast ‘90s hip hop melodrama that my generation grew up on. I remember those diss mixtapes that would come out monthly from artist on both sides of the spectrum of the respective beef.
