It — Very interesting story and technically solid horror flick — 8*/10

This is the kind of horror movie I like. It doesn’t scare the shit out of you, it's not gory, it's super interesting with lots of nice details, you can't tell who's going to die when, with a few exceptions, you have a strong female member of the group, and a bunch of kids who give a solid cohesive performance.

American Assassin — A great mix of super spy and real spy movie genres — 7*/10

It has the decisions and complications of a real spy thriller with the action and lone hero specs of a super spy flick. It does come with a few noticeable flaws, but it's still a very entertaining result.

Michael Keaton and Sanaa Lathan.

Despicable Me 3 — Pretty funny, better than the second one — 7*/10

Funny, hilarious at time, with lots of great details and many throwbacks to the 80s, it's definitely a better sequel to the original (read my review here) than the second one. If you like that universe, it's a no-brainer.

Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig.

Wind River — A powerful drama with a very interesting investigation — 10*/10

This movie won't leave anybody indifferent. Touching, sometimes in a harsh way with a reality that needs to be put to light. Surprising, shocking, and with unusual script decisions.

A must.

Elizabeth Olsen, Kelsey Asbille, Jeremy Renner, Julia Jones, Graham Greene and Jon Bernthal.
