Director Christopher Nolan gets a lot of praise for his movies, some of it warranted. As decent as some of his directed movies have been, I have been slow to get on the bandwagon. I do believe his movies have flaws. But this is terrific!

This is terrific! A great cast led by Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, John Hamm, Ansel Elgort, and Lily James. This gets a ton of originality points with me.
It's the story of Baby, (Elgort) a young hot shot getaway driver with a small group of big time bank robbers. Baby has a back story that is interesting and and original. He falls in love with Deborah, (James) and decides he wants out of the crime business. But his boss (Spacey) feels differently.
This is fun, fast, well paced and a story you have not seen before, with original characters and good performances. HUGE kudos to Lily James, she is amazing as the reluctant love interest and is a very nice break from the fast pace of the much of this movie. Terrific soundtrack too, adds a ton to this incredible script.
Baby Driver - Flat out good!
This should have been much better than it is, and that's a shame. All the parts were assembled together for this to be really strong. Adapted by Sophia Coppola, and starring Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell.
National critics are loving this, but the public is not. It's the story taking place in 1864 Virginia. A school for woman takes in a wounded Northern soldier (Farrell) in the waning days of the Civil War. He is badly injured and they bring him back to health, even though the are Southern Loyalists. Then the problems begin. They have not seen a man in years, and he a dishonest guy with ideas about how he can "benefit" from being locked up with many lonely women. How do they take revenge? Or deal with him?
This lacks teeth. Yes, there is some nice acting, and some twists that are interesting, but this lacks a any real direction, and there is really no strong end payoff. This could have been way more compelling and way more scary, but this just comes up as a movie packaged way better than produced.
The Beguiled - disappointing.
Will Farrell and Amy Poehler can be funny people, or maybe used to be funny people. But quite frankly, I feel they are just out of ideas and have been for a while.
I am sure you know the premise here, and if you've seen the trailer, there is no real reason to see the movie. You have seen all of it. There is not one thing here that is new, original, and the laughs are few.
The House - Huge flop and flat out bad.
