    Dragged Across Concrete

    ★★★★

    While some of the dialogue is very writer-y, S. Craig Zahler is getting better as a film-maker with each movie.

    He makes films that want to scar the viewer and make them think, and how many of those are there these days? Most directors just seem to be waiting for a phone call from Marvel or Netflix.

    Any Leftist propaganda against this movie is 100% bullshit. It's far more honest and even-handed than every 'important' movie that is drenched in exaggeration and virtue-signalling to make cheap political points.

    At the very least this should get a 'Best Original Screenplay' nomination at the Oscars next year.

    Screwball

    ★★★

    Entertainingly nutty tale of how an unpaid $4000 debt lead to the career destruction of the highest paid baseball player in history.

    The use of kids in the re-enactments is either inspired or utterly stupid. Each viewer will decide how they feel about that. And a couple of dopey digs at Trump will make a lot of people's eyes roll.

    The Red Pill

    ★★★★

    Excellent, even-handed documentary about the misconceptions behind the much-maligned 'Men's Rights Movement'.

    If anything this is a bit TOO even-handed and I feel like it pulls some punches. Especially in regards to the appalling behavior and underhanded tactics of some feminist groups to shut down any discussion of male-related issues, including setting off fire alarms at venues and even calling in bomb threats.

    Cassie Jaye is a brave and compassionate documentarian. That screenings of this film have been boycotted and cancelled by outraged feminists pretty much tells you all you need to know about the direction of the movement.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    The first half is a chase, the second half is a race.

    Quite simply one of the greatest 'action' films of all time.
