Vintage Liam Neeson. Typical actioner. Nice to see January Jones in something other than Mad Men. Clever plot twists require paying attention. 7/10

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Yep, this is one of those. It’s a love story. It’s set in France in the late 1700s. It’s subtitled. It’s brutal. 9/10

The Invisible Man

The ultimate gaslighting flick. Enjoyable, entertaining, decent twists. The one thing we hated. HATED. was the volume of the music closing the movie and playing through the credits. Ridiculously loud for no good reason. 8/10

Downhill

Ironic, the movie followed the title… Typical bad Will Ferrell flick where you are uncomfortable and only waiting to see what will make you feel more uncomfortable. Simply not enough laughs to warrant calling this…
