mother! (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 120 min
tesg's Rating: Zero stars (out of four)

This movie is perfect for those who:
  • Really hate religion and love to mock it
  • Really hate women and love to both mentally and physically abuse them
  • Really really really really love the male ego at its worst
For everyone else, this movie is a disgusting, sickening abomination that should have never been made.

Wind River (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 110 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

Beautifully shot in the desolate snowy West.  The plot unfolds nicely with the resolution coming abruptly, yet perfectly weaved in.

It could end up being my choice for movie of the year not so much because it's that good, but because the competition this year has been that weak.

It (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 135 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

I probably should have gone two and a half, but the feel of this was so Spielberg 80's that it just worked for me.  I mean, it's a horror flick and all, but it's more than that with the advanced development of the kids characters and their relationships.
