  • Rust and Bone

    Rust and Bone

    ★★★★½

    The paths of two very different people cross at Antibes. Ali, a single dad and amateur boxer from Belgium, and Stephanie, an orca trainer at the local theme park who loses her legs in a freak accident. While their relationship starts as a friendship, it doesn't take long to become physical.

    Even in this age of superheroes, aliens, and CGI battles, there is still nothing to compare to the spectacle of a handful of humans laying bare their emotions onscreen.…

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    Inherit the Wind

    ★★★★

    Bert Cates, a young school teacher, is brought to trial in rural Tennessee because he taught the theory of evolution to his students. The case receives national attention and two famous lawyers, an atheist and a fundamentalist, arrive in town to defend Cates and prosecute the case respectively.

    Like all of Stanley Kramer's big message movies, "Inherit the Wind" is wearing its liberal ideology on its sleeve and never apologizes for it. Kramer never was a visually arresting director (cinematography,…

    And here's to the fools who dream
    Crazy as they may seem
