Silver Screen Queens 237: The Killing of a Sacred Deer

29 November 2017 • 39 minutes, 23 seconds

One of the early Oscar contenders, this film has been doing the festival rounds for a while and garnered decent critical buzz. We were slightly concerned about its ostensible themes of abuse, and it’s experimental Brechtian vibe, but were intrigued nonetheless.

22 November 2017 • 38 minutes, 16 seconds

After the success of WONDER WOMAN, DC brings together its biggest heroes in one picture.

Silver Screen Queens 232: Geostorm

25 October 2017 • 39 minutes, 48 seconds

Ahead of THOR: RAGNAROK, cinematic pickings are pretty slim. Our choices were THE SNOWMAN, or this B-grade disaster flick by screenwriter and showrunner Dean Devlin, starring Gerard Butler as an engineering genius trying to save the world from the climate change-solving satellites he designed and installed on the International Space Station. How could we resist that description!?
