Arctic

Saw it last night. Simple, almost hackneyed “man versus nature” story (which I’m a sucker for, and such stories are always also “man versus himself”), but done really well. Spare and unsparing. Easily my favorite new movie of 2019 so far.

The Old Man and the Gun

The Searcher

Yellowstone

Like “Longmire” meets Wind River meets Lonesome Dove? Could be something. The music here — a bit more pressing than your usual Western fare — piques my interest the most. I’m in for at least the first episode.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Hard to believe the first one of these came out in 1996. All of my current students, for instance, were born after that.

Glad they brought back Rebecca Ferguson, a highlight for me of the previous film, 2015’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Stunts, cinematography, locations, Cruise intensity — all look top notch.

Opens July 27, 2018.

Hostiles

Saw it last night. Liked it a lot. More than I thought I would. Did a little Twitter thread about it.
