Nocturne

Nocturne

A non-linear, slick horror film that bends the limits of reality but makes sense when everything comes together. Also, I have said this in many reviews, never mess around with a Ouija board, and if you do . . . always, ALWAYS say good bye! Otherwise you have just invited in any spirit that wants to come in. Think of it like your house, you wouldn’t just leave your front door open and not kick out unruly guests, would you? Especially not invisible guests with terrible dark powers! If only these “high school” kids had gotten the memo. The question isn’t if they’ll all die, it’s when and if you’ll even realize when it is happening.

If you are looking for a fresh perspective on the somewhat overdone Ouija board horror genre, Nocturne provides it with a compelling, and a bit confusing story-line. There are moments where nothing will make sense, until the very end, and the film never gets boring. I was definitely entertained.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

Swift shot: Set just as the Berlin Wall is about to collapse in 1989, Atomic Blonde delivers style and sexuality with a taste of neon punk and an immersive soundtrack inspired by David Bowie’s so-called Berlin Trilogy. This slow but sweet spy thriller does a marvelous job capturing feminine force whilst balancing the nuanced vulnerability that keeps the story from becoming a complete farce of reality. Our Atomic Blonde doesn’t always come out of her battles unscathed. But, damn is it fun to watch her turn set pieces into kindling as she messes up the bad guys!

Atomic Blonde also has the added pleasure of being a film you can watch twice to get a better appreciation of each character’s motives the second time around, once everything is revealed. If you like slow burn spy thrillers and beautiful women, you’d be a damned fool to miss this one in theaters!
