    Only took 8 years but I’ve made an essay about Godard, his film about the birth of Christ, and it happened to be the day the Supreme Court took away abortion rights.

    "Is this the type of woman that you like?"

    The entire fucking movie all I could hear was Matt Gourley as Maggie the GPS. Absolutely nothing. Hanks good but even he know he's not doing Captain Phillips again.

For once I didn't have to think overlong about character and whether or not I liked anyone or cared about their journey. Unlike Revolver it's not that kind of movie. Ritchie's in shark mode here, which revealed something kind of interesting about him. In…

    Maybe it's me but there's something kind of cheap and tawdry about giving your character a sort of accentuated handicap and playing it for scares? The treatment of Charlie broke the spell the movie attempts to cast in the first ten minutes. She produces a chocolate bar from her pocket that neither parent knows the origins of, hinting that she's one of those magic children movies love that just does things to which the parents of a heavily troubled…
