Movie Review – Skin (2019)

Skin, 2019.

Written and Directed by Guy Nattiv.

Starring Jamie Bell, Danielle Macdonald, Daniel Henshall, Bill Camp, Louisa Krause, Zoe Colletti, Kylie Rogers, Colbi Gannett, Mike Colter, Vera Farmiga.

Synopsis:

A destitute young man, raised by racist skinheads and notorious among white supremacists, turns his back on hatred and violence to transform his life, with the help of a black activist and the woman he loves.

It’s certainly bold to tell a story about a white supremacist reforming and reintegrating back into normal society in the nightmarish state of America we currently inhabit, and that applies regardless of where you fall on the notion that any single person is capable of repenting and avenging their wrongdoings. The really uncomfortable but far more pertinent question to ask with Skin is if we really need to see a narrative about a real-life monster that realizes the error of his ways, changing his life,

Tiff Review: ‘Skin’ is a Harrowing Journey of Self-Recognition

Bryon ‘Babs’ Widner (Jamie Bell) hears the buzz of a faulty electrical connection, triggering a transition to an operating table and screams as the tattoos covering most of his body start being removed. It’s a soundscape that’ll have you squirming in your seat, the close-up shots of scar tissue replacing ink as physical a transformation as the act is metaphorical. Because the art adorning his face, neck, and torso isn’t some elaborate supernatural fantasy with family memorials—it’s a map to the blackest center of his soul. Babs is a white supremacist and these “patches” define his rage and vitriol. They mark him as property of his Viking captain (Bill Camp’s Fred), a man who saved his life before promptly stealing it by turning him into a monster.

This is the figure at the center of Guy Nattiv’s harrowing Skin, a real-life victim of

[Review] Fathers and Daughters

The works of director Gabriele Muccino aren’t for everyone. I can’t speak on his Italian films, but the American ones are unavoidably cloying and sentimental in a way that must be accepted or ignored to find resonance. Despite being the one showered with praise, The Pursuit of Happyness didn’t quite do enough for me. I appreciated the story and performances, but felt the artifice. For Seven Pounds, however, I didn’t care. The entire film proved one giant manipulative contrivance yet it unexpectedly hit me with depth and power just the same. So when the opportunity to watch his latest Fathers and Daughters arrived, I was optimistic. It looked ripe for that same emotional catharsis and as such possessed the potential to also crash and burn magnificently.

It’s reality lies somewhere in the middle. Brad Desch‘s script is everything that detractors say it is, but

Miracles From Heaven review: “Without its cast would have found its way onto TV.”

Miracles From Heaven review: Another Christian drama hits cinemas, but is it considered and inspiring, or just a cash grab? Miracles From Heaven review

Religious films continue to do fantastic business in the Us, and there’s even a market for them in the UK. We’ve already had God’s Not Dead 2 and Risen hit cinemas this year, and now Miracles From Heaven. Whereas the former two films were based on news stories and biblical texts respectively, Miracles From Heaven is based on a true story and adapted from a memoir written by Christy Beam. Straight off many audience members will decide whether the story is true or not, or in part fabricated, or even if it is downright irresponsible.

Christy Beam’s (Jennifer Garner) daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) suffers from multiple rare digestive disorders, leaving her in constant pain and unable to eat, instead being fed by tubes.

Miracles from Heaven review – unbelievably preachy Christian drama

When the sick daughter of God-fearing folk recovers, the family attribute it to divine intervention. Jennifer Garner, what are you doing in this?

This stridently Christian film takes a news story from 2011 and turns it into a hectoring preach, with one very curious invention. A 10-year-old girl in small-town Texas named Anna Beam (played here by Kylie Rogers) is suffering from an agonisingly painful and apparently incurable bowel disease. Her devoutly Christian parents Christy and Kevin (Jennifer Garner and Martin Henderson) take comfort in prayer and their local church; desperately, Christy takes Anna to a famous Boston paediatrician who does what can. All seems lost. But then … well, there’s a miracle, which the family unhesitatingly attribute to divine grace. Fine. But wait. There are two miracles here. Because in this film, little Anna shares a hospital ward with the daughter of a Boston journalist named Ben Wexler. Now, Wexler

'Zootopia' Crushes 'Divergent: Allegiant' at the Box Office with $38M

'Zootopia' Crushes 'Divergent: Allegiant' at the Box Office with $38M
For the past six weeks, just two movies have dominated at the box office. First it was 20th Century Fox's Deadpool, whose three-week reign at the top was ended by Disney's Zootopia. According to the estimates from Box Office Mojo, the animated comedy has won its third week in a row, fending off two two new releases, Lionsgate's The Divergent Series: Allegiant and Miracles from Heaven. The Divergent Series: Allegiant was projected to come out on top, but its lackluster opening and a strong third week for Zootopia kept Disney's winning streak alive.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant was projected to take in $37 million in its opening weekend, which would normally result in an easy win, but it all depended on how much Zootopia dropped in its third frame. Last weekend, the animated blockbuster only dropped 31.9%, but this weekend, it only dropped 25.9%, passing the $200 million domestic milestone with $201.8 million. It has

Movie Review – Miracles from Heaven (2016)

Miracles from Heaven, 2016.

Directed by Patricia Riggen.

Starring Jennifer Garner, Kylie Rogers, Eugenio Derbez, Martin Henderson, John Carroll Lynch, Brighton Sharbino, Courtney Fansler, and Queen Latifah.

Synopsis:

A young girl suffering from a rare digestive disorder finds herself miraculously cured after surviving a terrible accident.

As Easter sneaks up on us, studios begin dropping all of their religion oriented stories into cinemas out of good timing. Some of them take their preachy tone to unbearable levels, while very rarely some present an unbiased look at a narrative. Miracles From Heaven isn’t the Bible thumping “all hail Jesus and his unparalleled generosity” tale it’s marketed as, although the movie is most assuredly aimed at that devoted crowd.

Miracles From Heaven ultimately ends up as one of the more tolerable religious flicks in recent memory for quite a few reasons, with the greatest strength surprisingly being its acting. Veteran actress Jennifer Garner in the distressed,

Miracles From Heaven Review

Miracles from Heaven means well, and I mean that sincerely. It promises an uplifting, feel-good story about the nobility of paying-it-forward, doing right by your neighbors and the power of faith and adversity against the hardships of the world. And believe it or not, it doesn’t necessarily feel like a gospel lesson in the process.

Unlike its hokey, sermon-heavy evangelical cinematic peers like God’s Not Dead or Heaven is for Real, there’s an honest, hard-wrought underlining integrity to the film earned by respectable performances from Jennifer Garner, Martin Henderson, Kylie Rogers John Carroll Lynch and Eugenio Derbez.

It’s melodramatic at times, sure. In fact, a lot of the time, as its never truly prone to subtlety. But there’s an occasional moment of raw emotional intensity, or genuinely affecting physical turmoil, that doesn’t often feel as cheap or manipulative as you’d think. In the right contexts,

Miracles From Heaven – The Review

Miracles From Heaven explores issues of family and faith while telling the true tale of Texan Christy Beam (played by Jennifer Garner) that begins when her 10-year old daughter Anna (Kylie Rogers) develops horrible stomach pain. The child is initially misdiagnosed, and when her disorder is discovered to be an incurable, and ultimately fatal, digestive disease, Christy finds herself a fierce advocate for Anna’s health. She travels to Boston frequently to work with Dr. Nirko (Eugenio Derbez), apparently the only specialist in the country who can help. Back home, Christy’s husband Kevin (Martin Henderson) does his best to hold down the fort with their other two daughters while dealing with impending financial stress. After a freak accident involving a hollow tree and a glimpse of God and Heaven, a miracle unfolds that leaves doctors confounded and the Beam’s small-town community inspired.

Miracles From Heaven is as decent and square as it sounds.
