THiNC. Movie Spotlight #95

THiNC. Movie Spotlight #95. Let’s kick off with a review of the last few Spotlights, and the most important movies that have dropped most recently you might have missed. I know, I’m always thinking about you… selflessly. You are welcome.

Bones and All – Can’t wait to find time to get to a theater for this one. Need Chalamet goodness.
Something in the DirtAvailable now – absolutely glorious. Exactly the movie this site was built on.
Next Exit – Watch right here. Read the review here.
The Wonder – THAT OPENING! So great. Loved this movie. Another write up I HAVE to do.
The Menu – Haven’t gotten to the theaters yet to see this one. Need to.
1899 – Amazeballs. Just a perfect show. Write-up coming soon. Watch it on Netflix now.

COCAINE BEAR 02.18.2022

Yes, I know… this movie isn’t hitting theaters until February, but we have GOT to talk about this one! I mean, Cocaine Bear?!? Hahah. I mean. COME ON. If you are intrigued by the REAL story behind the movie, you gotta check out this New York Times article. If you just want to go into all the mayhem completely blind? Totally don’t blame you but this is going to be FANTASTIC! hahah.

New Movies Coming Soon –

DEVOTION – 11.23.22

“The inspirational true story of Jesse Brown, the first Black aviator in U.S. Navy history, and his enduring friendship with fellow fighter pilot Tom Hudner. Helping to turn the tide in the most brutal battle in the Korean War, their heroic sacrifices ultimately make them the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen.”

THE FABELMANS – 11.11.22

I wasn’t going to mention this one. Generally, I’m not an enormous Steve Spielberg fan. (Commence burning in effigy. “WHAT – THIS IS HERESY! HE MUST NOT BE AN AMERICAN!!!”) But I’ve heard from two or three people I trust that it is a really good movie. So, okay, I’ll relent. (Also, it’s a light movie week! hahaha.)

BLACKWATER – 11.25.22

I literally know nothing about this movie. Saw a blurb about it a month or two ago and thought it looked interesting. And outside of that? Nothing. I can’t even find a trailer for it? Or a synopsis. Oh, wait… IMDb to the rescue: “On one fateful night; Oliver Grayson: a lonely, quiet, and enigmatic internet goods provisioner had everything taken away in an instant. Left with no recent memory, only Ella can help him find his true identity, but can they accept it?” If you guys got an idea as to how to watch this one? Or where we can find a trailer? I’d be eternally grateful. Or, maybe grateful til later this afternoon anyway.

Coming Soon – Watch List:
2022.12.09 EMPIRE OF LIGHT
2022.12.09 THE WHALE
2022.12.16 THE WAY OF WATER
2022.12.23 BABYLON
Unknown LOLA
