The Fabelmans

Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-bothering film based loosely on his early life and growth as an emerging filmmaker. As Anthony Morris wrote for ScreenHub:

A few blunt speeches aside, for a story partly about a disintegrating marriage told from a teenager’s point of view The Fabelmans is remarkably mature (and fault-free) about matters of the heart and human nature. It’s an often-rueful look at a crumbling family, even as it celebrates the joy of making movies; one wouldn’t work half as well without the other.

Technical trickery can delight an audience for a moment, but putting emotions up on screen? That’s the real magic.

The Fabelmans review: Steven Spielberg’s movies are dreams

The Pope’s Exorcist

A demonic exorcism movie starring Russell Crowe as the exorcist in question. As Anthony Morris wrote for ScreenHub:

There are truly so many exorcism and demonic possession movies that it is impossible to keep count. Catholic horror remains a genre that shows no signs of slowing down, and as more of the church’s real-world horrors come to light there is a genuine space to be something more.

The Pope’s Exorcist does not take any of those chances. While it broaches some interesting Catholic taboos – particularly in regards to the Zovatto character whose sinful confessions hint at emotional depths the script has no interest in following through with – Avery is more interested in being a fun night out at the movies instead.

The Pope’s Exorcist review: God only knows
