Moonlight Mile (2002)

As he copes with the death of his fiancée, a young man befriends her parents and must figure out what he wants out of life.

Saccharine melodrama has a good cast and is well made, but the multiple stories of love and loss have all been told better before.

Halliwell*: "Over-sweet account of how various individuals cope with loss; it has its moments, though they are not as many as one would hope."

Maltin**1/2: "Delicate material is handled with skill and good humor, until the young hero meets a woman who's too good to be true, and the story's credibility is derailed. Salvaged, to a great degree, by superior acting from Hoffman and Sarandon."

Split (2016)

Three girls are kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities, and they must try to escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th.

Above-average thriller introducing an uniquely disturbing multi-faceted villain keeps suspense high with a series of twists to its plot.

First Lines: Thomas Pynchon - Vineland

Later than usual one summer morning in 1984, Zoyd Wheeler drifted awake in sunlight through a creeping fig that hung in the window, with a squadron of blue jays stomping around on the roof.

Hold the Dark (2018)

After the deaths of three children suspected to be killed by wolves, a writer is hired by the mother of a missing six-year-old boy to track down and locate their son in the Alaskan wilderness.

Atmospherically dark and violent drama with great landscape cinematography and excellent cast ultimately disappoints by refusing to give any explanation or sense to what's going on.

Spectral (2016)

A special-ops team is dispatched to fight supernatural beings.

Well-made, but standard sci-fi fare with a silly plot - and silly science; not really that suspenseful either.
