A Time to Kill (1996)

Matthew McConaughey, Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Bullock, Kevin Spacey, Donald and Keifer Sutherland, Ashley Judd...how did it take me so long to see this movie?

I have been in a real start-a-movie-and-pass-out phase lately, but this movie kept me interested throughout and wide awake and thinking as the credits rolled. There was something so earnest about Samuel L. Jackson's portrayal of Carl Lee, a man on trial for the revenge-murder of two men who raped and beat his ten-year-old daughter. I kept me putting myself in his shoes, which is exactly what a good drama should make the viewer do.

Ashley Judd is one of my favorite actresses, but the real magic happens when Bullock and McConaughey are onscreen together. Their chemistry is electric and kept me interested in the development of their interactions. Without spoiling, I will say that the writers of this movie have woven a thread of purity into every move the lead ensemble make. It enhances the natural instinct to support the lead players if he/she are worthy.

In the end, the viewer feels relieved, provoked, and saddened all at once.

It wasn't all perfect, of course. Some of McConaughey's scenes felt a little forced, especially the finale courtroom tear-jerker. The entire plot has been done again and again, so the story has to do all of the work. It can be hokey at times and this movie is certainly very predictable, but for me it works well for a first time viewing and will be a candidate for reviewing.

Captain Fantastic (2016) - 7.9
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3553976/
In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

A beautiful movie. I still wonder what the last scene means.

Also wasted time on Ghostbusters (2016), Suicide Squad (2016).

I saw this movie in theaters, but recently watched it again at home. It's hilarious although at times the humor is a little absurd, which I enjoy, but some don't. All in all a great movie.

I watched Lucy recently and really enjoyed it. Loved the cinematography and storytelling. Concept was very simple actually, essentially like Limitless but with Scar Jo.
