D.C.’s Take: “Blade Runner 2049”

 - 

  If you were alive in the summer of 1982, you probably remember some claims that that summer changed the sci-fi genre for years to come. One film to do just that was none other than “Blade Runner,” which has since been hailed as an all-time classic. Fast-forw... More »

D.C.’s Take: “Battle of the Sexes”

 - 

  It’s Oscar season, and that’s usually the best time for studios to release their films that they hope will be considered one of the best of the year, possibly pushing to be a real contender for the golden statuette. So what better way to get people’s attenti... More »

D.C.’s Take: mother!

 - 

I think it’s best to go into a movie as blind as possible. That was my thinking with Darren Aronofsky’s latest film:  “mother!” (sic.). I knew that this film could lead to many discussions among film critics. And, like most of Aronofsky’s films, “mother!” does... More »

D.C.’s Take: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’

 - 

Trying to direct a sequel to an action movie is sometimes a tough thing for Hollywood to get around to, especially when the first movie was good. When it finally does happen, it usually goes one of two ways: it’s either great, like “The Bourne Ultimatum” or “T... More »

D.C.’s Take: ‘Lion’

 - 

True stories can sometimes be seen as manipulative. But some films this year, such as “Sully” or even “Hidden Figures,” which are based on true stories, pulled it off with the material they were given while still tugging on the heartstrings. Plus, it wouldn’t ... More »
