Most of our favourite entertainers and media moguls are disgusting sexual deviants. In a wave of disturbing revelations it feels like we’re living a story arc on TV series Mr. Robot, where a hacker group has managed to expose a ton of celebrities as pervballs who abuse their power and names to get off. From Louis CK, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and more, when is it OK to separate the disgraced actor/filmmaker from the movie or TV show? Read more
With comedy sequels, the cast is usually bigger, and the gag jokes try to go even further; and, of course, Daddy’s Home 2 accomplishes both of those things, but with bad results. Personally, I enjoyed Daddy’s Home. It wasn’t the best comedy, but it was certainly one of Will Ferrell’s funniest movies in recent years. And when I heard that Mel Gibson and John Lithgow joined the cast for Daddy’s Home 2, my anticipation went from nonexistent to moderately excited. However, Daddy’s Home 2 is another swing and miss from Ferrell (and Mark Wahlberg to a slight extent), whose spiraling downward trend of bad comedies is on the same trajectory as Adam Sandler’s (yeah, I went there).

The true story of the heroics of Pfc. Desmond Doss is nothing short of incredible, unreal, and every other superlative you can come up with. Director Mel Gibson (Braveheart) admirably tells Doss’s story in Hacksaw Ridge, a powerful war drama steeped in grace from its main character and horror from its battlefield sequences. Hacksaw Ridge does not shy away from its unwavering principles in a time where the world was tearing itself apart. While it might feel clichéd at times, the cast of Hacksaw Ridge elevates those moments and give balance to a war drama that doesn’t need to rely solely on war violence to drive the narrative. War dramas are a dime a dozen, but Hacksaw Ridge is without a doubt the best war drama in recent memory and the first movie of the fall that could (and should) generate some Oscar buzz.
