Official Secrets is a Timely, Suspenseful Thriller With Stellar Storytelling (Review)

Official Secrets is a Timely, Suspenseful Thriller With Stellar Storytelling (Review)

Ever since receiving critical and awards-season accolades for Tsotsi in 2006, writer/director Gavin Hood has carved a niche for himself in making suspenseful political thrillers, and his latest film, Official Secrets, is another solid entry into the genre. Based on the actual events surrounding real-life whistleblower Katharine Gun, her story has been adapted into a gripping, suspenseful film worth your time and attention for its ominous visuals, engaging performances from its cast led by Keira Knightley, and an eye-opening look at the lengths to which everyone involved went on all sides of Katharine’s case to stand up for what’s right.

It: Chapter 2 is the Best Horror Movie of the Year (Review)

It: Chapter 2 is the Best Horror Movie of the Year (Review)

Forgettable horror sequels are a dime a dozen in Hollywood; they’re almost never anywhere near as good as their predecessors and fail to reach the caliber of the movie that helped lay the foundation (or make a profit for a studio). While It: Chapter 2 is based on Stephen King’s popular novel, the physical copy of which is as heavy as a bag of apples, it still has a lot to live up to thanks to its forerunner that was a smashing hit and a near-perfect horror movie. Based on the box office numbers and reception, Warner Brothers gave returning director Andy Muschietti more than just the keys to the sequel, but the whole garage, its tools, and anything else he wanted in order to make Chapter 2 live up to every bit of the first installment. As a result, It: Chapter 2 is more than just a horror movie. It’s a blockbuster with the mentality of “go big or go home.” Going all out to the very end It: Chapter 2 swings for the fences and hits a home run. At just a hair below its predecessor, it’s not only the year’s best horror movie, but also one of the best horror sequels ever made.
