The Dead Don’t Die (**) doesn’t rise

Still, that I don’t hate this film is more a tribute to the interesting cast. I keep thinking something good could happen, even though nothing really does. People just show up places, wait around, talk about stuff, then they die.

Logan Lucky (****1/2) is Ocean’s on a budget

This film is a perfect Sunday afternoon flick. Low commitment and it doesn’t cure the world’s ills. There are some touching moments like the last time you hear that John Denver song. There is some amount of overdoing it with the accent, especially on the peripheral characters. It’s a minor quibble, though. If you like movies, but aren’t shooting for the moon, this is it. Where else are you going to hear Patsy Cline in a bar?

Midnight Special (****) has a familiar shine

Nichols succeeds with this story, but not to the level of his previous work. The pace works, and the effects are in keeping with the rest of the story up until that big reveal. If you loved what Nichols has done before, you will like this one. That it’s not the groundbreaking work one would hope for feels like a disappointment, and that’s a little unfair. If you hadn’t seen the previous work of the director with his number one actor, you’d think this film is more than fine.
