    “La face cachée du Baklava: The Hidden face of the Baklava”

    "La face cachée du backlava" is a comedy about culture clashes even among siblings. Houwayda has cut her Lebanese roots while Joëlle, her sister, is strongly attached to traditions. Overall, a somewhat pleasant movie.

    “The Hunt for Red October”

    Ignore the bad reviews. This is one of the better movies for suspense and story. Well produced, well acted and well written. Sean Connery is at his best. I wish some reviewers would realize movies are just stories. They are not real. They are entertainment. Not everything in life is a political agenda. If you’re not entertained fine. Say so. I, and I believe most people, go to the theatre to be entertained, not educated. This movie is good entertainment in my opinion. For $5 you can’t lose. Spoiler alert. It’s not real. It’s all made up. It’s not a documentary. It’s just entertainment. Chill!

    “House of Wax”

    This was not a half bad horror actually, the 5.3/10 IMDB rating is ludicrous. Elisha Cuthbert is ridiculously hot! And Paris gets piped! For a 2 hours horror movie there was not a single boring moment, that's a feat!

    “The Owners”

    Towards the end, “The Owners” goes to a place that doesn’t entirely make sense/wasn't set up properly enough to be believable. This would be enough to sink a movie but when your thriller/horror film fills its audience with this level of anxiety and fear, you can overlook a couple of blemishes.

    Longtime friends Nathan (Ian Kenny), Mary (Maisie Williams), and Terry (Andrew Ellis) have concocted a plan to get rich quick and get out of their dead-end town. They’ve recruited Gaz (Jake Curran) to help them break into the Huggins’ home safe. When things go wrong, the elderly Dr. Huggins (Sylvester McCoy) and his wife Ellen (Rita Tushingham) are taken hostage. Things soon spiral out of control.

    “The Owners” works because it sustains intense emotions throughout. There is no reason for you to care about Mary. She barely protests at the idea of robbing the elderly Huggins’. At least she’s more strong-willed than Terry, who constantly second-guesses everything and lets himself be pushed around. You like him a little bit more than Nathan, who makes it increasingly clear that he’s just a thug who's never been pushed far enough to show how awful he could be. The worst of the bunch is easily Gaz, who shows no empathy towards anyone at all. You wonder how the Huggins’ will fare because they're the antagonists. All the group needs is one push and their bonds of loyalty unravel. You want to see the thieves fail. If they all end up killing each other and the Huggins too, so be it. Good on Mr. Huggins for not caving in. His resistance makes you fantasize about what you’d say to make Terry turn on his friends. You’re mad. You’re scared. You want to see what’s coming next.

    Then, the movie changes into something completely different. The biggest threat in the room is no longer Gaz and the Huggins now creep you out. Is it just stubbornness and anger making them uncooperative? Have you caught the interlopers' paranoia? How crazy is this going to get?

    Unfortunately, it gets a little bit too crazy at the end. There are big coincidences and certain revelations make you go "but if they knew this… then why’d they do that? " I was too invested to care. I just needed to know what was next.

    “The Owners” makes you feel a lot of things. As long as those emotions are going wild, you won't think about the technical details too much. It’d be a mistake not to comment on the performances, however. Jake Curran is extremely good as the blaring alarm that says “trouble” in every scene but you’ll forget him once Rita Tushingham gets going. She’s terrifying, partially because you're not sure whether she can ultimately be trusted or not.

    A couple of recent thrillers also did what “The Owners” winds up doing, with a group of bad/“bad” people having a situation turn on them. The story isn't breaking any new grounds. Nonetheless, it’ll have your stomach in knots, wondering what’s coming next. (October 31, 2020)

    “You Should Have Left”

    Though this film certainly gives every indication of being the same old material that borders on thriller and horror, it turned me on in the first place by this excellent depiction of some unknown New England area offering a very suitable backdrop to what is about to occur. Kevin Bacon returns to the screen in a lead role that sees him eventually go through some tremendous trials and tribulations as his clouded mind is conjuring up all sorts of unhealthy mind sets which descend into hallucinations and worse. Though the plot borders on known material, there is enough substance that prevents this venture from sinking totally.

    “Let Him Go”

    I was pleasantly surprised at how good this movie was. The storyline kept me interested, as did the beautiful scenery, and the acting was outstanding from the entire cast. And while I'm not a big Costner fan, he does an excellent job in this film (as does Diane Lane as his wife), playing a retired sheriff, who is low key and keeps his emotions close to his chest.

    This is my favorite film of the year so far, but be aware that there are moments of extreme violence in the film. If you are OK with that, you will likely enjoy this film very much.

    “Tenet”

    Difficult to understand what is going on at first, and sometimes throughout the movie. Special effects are cool, actors are decent.
