The Wife, starring Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce, is one of the more moving films I’ve seen in quite some time.
‘The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot’ belies its drive-in movie title by being a wonderful drama about aging and the secrets we all keep.
Favourites and Best Of lists can difficult. I don’t keep track of every single film I watch during the year (though maybe I should for 2019), so it’s always a case of trying to recall what films I really connected with. On that note, here’s my list of my five favourite films of 2018.
Thanks to the music that inspires it, and the outstanding performances from all involved. Bohemian Rhapsody delivers majesty worthy of the name Queen.
Luca Guadagnino’s ‘Suspiria’ throws concepts together in a German dance academy, covers them with fake blood, and hopes you won’t notice how bored you are.
Watch with glazed boredom as Dimension Films runs a once beloved franchise into the ground with ‘Halloween: Resurrection,’ a dreadful experience in awfulness.
While its graphic nature is already the stuff of legend, there’s more to Isabella Eklov’s clinical and terrifying first feature, ‘Holiday,’ than that one scene.
The depiction of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon, ‘First Man,’ is a treat for the eyes, but suffers an emotional coldness that hampers its connection with the audience.
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga shine in the most recent iteration of ‘A Star is Born,’ but Sam Elliott is the one who deserves the highest praise.
‘Halloween: H20 – 20 Years Later’ takes everything you know about the franchise, runs it through a meat grinder, and winds up a bloody mess.
BHFF selection ‘Empathy, Inc.’ overcomes its budget limitation by focusing on character to tell its virtual reality horror story.
‘The Book of Birdie’ is a mystical horror fantasy, dripping with blood, but not in the way most genre horror fans would expect.
