Here is what we’re excited to see this month

A new year, a new you…as we begin 2019, we want to extend a word of appreciation to everyone and anyone who gave us an opportunity to speak sanity into the world of Hollywood film criticism. 

And now, for this month’s watch list…



A woman grapples with the consequences of her celebrity husband’s double life after he commits suicide.


GLASS – January 18


M. Night Shyamalan is back. Unbreakable meets Split. Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities.


THE HEIRESSES – January 18


This director debut from Marcelo Martinessi is about two descendants from wealthy families who have been together for over 30 years. With their financial situation becoming worse, they begin selling off their inherited possessions. But when their debts lead to one of them being imprisoned on fraud charges, the other is forced to face a new reality. The film won the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival in 2018.


SERENITY – January 25


The mysterious past of a fishing boat captain comes back to haunt him, when his ex-wife tracks him down with a desperate plea for help, ensnaring his life in a new reality that may not be all that it seems. It’s Anne Hathaway. It’s Matthew McConaughey. But most importantly its writer/director Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, Eastern Promises, Locke).

Famed Turkish director, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, returns after his last film, Winter Sleep, in 2014 won the Palme d’Or. This one is about an aspiring writer who returns to his native village, where his father’s debts catch up to him. Doubtful that it will play in your area on this date, but this film will certainly be one to remember.


Since new films at the start of the year typical stink, here are two lists (1, 2) from 2018 we recommend to glean through.
