Game Night

Game Night Poster

Remember that great 1997 David Fincher thriller The Game starring Michael Douglas?  (For those that don't, it was a thrilling movie about a man who has everything, so for his birthday his brother buys him an extremely immersive adventure experience.  But as the game gets more and more intense, the question becomes, is it real?)  It was a very cool movie.  Now, wouldn't it be cool to see a similar themed update, only a comedy that's actually funny as well as engrossing?  Yes, it would be.  And I can tell you Game Night is one of the most entertaining films I've seen in a while.  The ensemble, lead by Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, and Kyle Chandler is great.  The laughs are aplenty.  And the sense of real danger adds excitement.

Grade: A

Who is this movie for?   If you like films that blend comedy and excitement, not unlike you find with The Hangover trilogy, then I highly recommend Game Night.  It's just fun.  And there's not enough movies just made to be fun in cinemas these days.

The Commuter

The Commuter Poster

Another January has come.  And in the movie world that means something.  To most critics and jaded moviegoers, January is known as the dumping ground for the worst theatrically released films of the year.  I think the theory is that if the studios really thought the film was any good they would've pushed it for a release before year end so it might be eligible for awards.  But the thing is, movies like The Commuter wouldn't win any awards even if it were great.  And increasingly so, January films aren't always bad.  They're just not pretentious films that have been flooding art house cinemas for the past four months.  And maybe that flood of prestige films is why this movie felt so refreshingly enjoyable.  It's Liam Neeson back doing the kind of films Liam Neeson does better than anyone.  This time he plays an insurance salesman struggling to make ends meet, when an intriguing woman makes him an offer he can't refuse on his regular commuter train ride home.  And then mystery and action ensue.

Grade: A-

Who is this movie for?  I have no doubt a lot of critics will pan it.  But I really enjoyed it.  And if you liked other Neeson films like Non-Stop (with more mystery, but also some action) you'll like it too.
