MovieViews Reviews:

A Star is Born 2018 A worthy remake that grew on me as it went. Both lead roles were played very well and the songs were good, but I didn't buy some of the emotional bits and the British manager was just awful. Gordon 7
BlackKklansman 2018 Despite its wewighty subject matter Spike Lee has crafted an engaging film that works as both history and entertainment. Gordon 8
BlackKKlansman 2018 As funny as it is powerful, as thrilling as it is harrowing, Spike Lee's film delivers an incredibly strong message in the most entertaining way possible, with an ending that is both shocking and necessary. A film the whole world should see. Mat 10
Can You Ever Forgive Me? 2018 True story of a down on her luck author who forges literary correspondence to make ends meet. I can't agree with Oscar nominations for McCarthy or Grant, but it is a nice film that has enough humour without becoming the kind of farce both are usually in. Gordon 7
If Beale Street Could Tak 2018 I haven't read the book, but this felt like an important story of love and an inherently racist police force/legal system. However the overly dramatic romance scenes and arty incidental shots lessen the impact of the actual drama. Gordon 7
