Movie reflections
July 28, 2017

It’s nice to pause and reflect on things every once in a while. As we are midway through the year, now seems like the perfect time to reminisce about some of the best movies that have come out so far with none other than renowned film critics Kennith Turan and Justin Chang. From Personal Shopper to Cars 3, Turan and Chang give their professional opinions on some of the biggest movies to come out since January.

According to Chang, it’s already been a great year for movies. He explains that sometimes films that come out in the first half of the year can be forgotten, however there is already Oscar buzz surrounding a few titles. For Get Out and Wonder Woman, both critically and commercially successful, whispers of Oscars are making the rounds. However, Turan does say that he felt Wonder Woman was too long. Both critics enjoyed Logan, starring Hugh Jackman as the mutant Wolverine, with Turan explaining that he was impressed by the seriousness of the role in the superhero genre.

Both Turan and Chang praise Kristen Stewart for her role in Personal Shopper. The psychological thriller, written and directed by the talented Frenchman Olivier Assayas, sees Stewart play a personal shopper for a celebrity in Europe. Could she be in the running for a Best Actress Oscar nomination next year?

Turan also makes a point of applauding the satirical war release War Machine. He claims that, because the movie starring Brad Pritt was released by Netflix and had a limited theatre release, few people got to see it in the cinema.
