Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton are starring in this gritty MMA-inspired family drama. Hardy and Edgerton play strange brothers who meet in the ring decades after their family was ripped apart by substance addiction and their father’s (and outstanding Nick Nolte’s) abuse.
Hardy plays Tommy, a war veteran who has had a horrible time abroad. Edgerton plays Brendan, a high school chemistry teacher who is competing in underground battle rings to earn some extra cash. The two squares in the ring, where more than just blows are exchanged.
2. Hunt for the Wilderpeople
This New Zealand backwoods adventure is going through every single coming-of-age cliché. Julian Dennison’s Ricky is an obsessive, hip-hop-obsessed, defiant orphan. His grizzled adoptive parent would like nothing more than to carry the tiny [expletive] back to government custody. When they find themselves trapped in the jungle, mistaken for on-the-lam offenders, they … You intend to purchase it.
Wilderpeople is a generous mix of genres, with Taika Waititi, operator of the wacky, vampiric parody of What We Do in the Shadows, making frantic jokes on the perilous voyage of the pair. Backed by a guitar, horror movie-like soundtrack, and beautiful scenery, Wilderpeople is one of 2016 ‘s busiest comedies.
3. A Quiet Place
John Krasinski always enhanced his play with A Silent Position as a director and actress. However, the plot doesn’t play too well with ufos or even fear, but Krasinski reveals the reality of a family that deals with loss and survival. The storyline centers on a family living in a post-apocalyptic futuristic future where the rugging of the beast is devastating in the future.
The family learns to survive in unity, but their harmony is threatened by social stress. There is no question that the silent setting is scary and gloomy, and the dialogue is brilliantly incomplete, but thanks to its strong relations and the fact that the cast can be expressed without language.
4. The Sisters Brothers
Jacques Audiard’s blockbuster film stars Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly are Charlie and Eli Girls, who live their lives in the West as Guns for Hire. They must murder a prospector (Riz Ahmed) with a precious gold mining formula. It’s hard to make a genre like the western one sound novel, but Audiard takes it away by moving between tones without ever losing the thread of his film.
The film is as dumb, somber, weird, and reflective as it turns out, but rather than jarring, it all seems coherent.
Bumblebee is the Big Fun Yellow Autobot we remember from the Transformers franchise, and in 2018 he made his own movie starring Dylan O’Brien, Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Angela Bassett, and Justin Theroux. The film was previously planned as a spin-off and a prequel, but later it turned out to be a gentle remake of the entire Transformers series. The film is directed by Travis Knight and makes his debut as a live-acting film director who previously directed and animated films at Laika Studios.
Hailee Steinfeld looks at Charlie, a young woman who is still struggling with the death of her father, and Bumblebee is coming to his life to helping her move forward. This may sound a little mute for a Transformers film but be assured that the movies are amazingly genuine, as are colorful battle scenes and fun cars.
6. Assassination Nation
Suki Waterhouse and Odessa Young star in this angst-filled story of adolescent vengeance. The flick follows four high school girls who go on a spree in their sleepy little town after a data leak exposes damning details about the inhabitants of the area.
Girls take on ex-boyfriends, former traffickers, would-be-rapists, and other mischievous a-holes with nail guns and katanas, and all sorts of protected firearms. It’s a grim comedy mixed with high-octane action.
Crawl is a blast, man. Alexandre Aja’s Gator movie is less than 90 minutes out, and the pitch appears to have been, “What if the kitchen scene from Jurassic Park is, but it’s the whole movie? “And reader, that’s a great pitch that pays off well. The story traces college athlete swimmer Haley (Kaya Scodelario) to her ex-husband’s father’s house (Barry Pepper) to seek him out after a category 5 hurricane in Florida.
She discovers her dad unconscious and manages to save him only to be stuck in the walls of the building. The rest of the film is simply two people trying to find out how to survive and avoid the hungry animals when the waters rise and attempt to drown them.
8. Fast Color
If you want your super-powered tales on the serious side, you’re sure to give Quick Color a chance. Julia Hart’s film takes place in a near-future dystopia where there is insufficient water and no rain in eight years. In this image, we see three generations of women who have the ability to deconstruct and reconstruct matter, which becomes a strong metaphor for attempting to restore fractured ties between them. While serious superhero movies like Logan and The Dark Knight are acclaimed.
Fast Color is just as deserving of recognition as it uses the mold of an indie family drama to discuss the opening of relationships that we believe could be.
Anchored by three outstanding performances by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lorraine Toussaint, and Saniyya Sidney, Fast Color is a film you should never let slip under the radar.
9. The Nightingale
I imagine that a lot of audiences won’t get through the upsetting and harrowing first act, which is a shame because director Jennifer Kent isn’t going to dark places just to get her audience out. She’s doing it to discover the complexities of revenge, and whether there’s some way out of it other than a loop of bloodshed where everybody winds up dead. Fortunately, her commentary refuses a simplistic reduction and makes it plain that, as expected, white men are generally the source of such brutality and abuse.
At some point, the film literally shouts at the viewer, “Never ROMANTICIZE COLONIALISM! “But this is the world of white supremacy — unfortunately barbaric, malicious, and devoid of any sort of compassion save for itself. Kent knows how to traumatize her audience, but her world also retains complexity and sensitivity, which makes The Nightingale such a powerful experience, particularly when you have phenomenal performances by Aisling Franciosi and Baykali Ganambarr.
10. Mission: Impossible – Fallout
The Mission: Impossible Series has solidified itself as — pound for pound — the best series currently running, and Mission: Impossible – Fallout is the biggest installment yet. Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie constructs not only one of the greatest adventure movies ever made but one of the best movies of 2018. This film offers what you’ve come to expect from the Task franchise — a diverse squad, jaw-dropping action, and dramatic twists and turns — but it still combines the genre in a new manner by moving internally.
For the first time, fans are welcomed into Ethan Hunt’s heart and mind, culminating in a shockingly intense watching experience that’s all the richer for him. Henry Cavill is beautiful, Rebecca Ferguson is always delighted, and Tom Cruise has never been happier.
