Reminiscence Review

Reminiscence (2021) Movie Review By D.M. Anderson

while the narrative isn’t always compelling, the special effects, production design and homages to classic film noir hold our attention. Perhaps that’s not enough to warrant repeated viewings, but it’s certainly worth checking-out at least once. Reminiscence kind of came-and-went with little attention when first released, but here’s hoping it’ll be remembered come Oscar time, since its technical aspects deserve a few nods.

Occupation: Rainfall Review

Occupation: Rainfall (2021) Movie Review By D.M. Anderson

Occupation: Rainfall earns zero points for originality and goes on a bit too long, but is certainly watchable. It’s slickly-made, has lots of flash and mostly moves at a brisk pace. However, be aware that the film comes to a remarkably unsatisfying conclusion where nothing is actually resolved.

Raging Fire Review

Raging Fire (2021) Movie Review By D.M. Anderson

Almost epic in scope, Raging Fire may not always be believable, but it’s a constantly entertaining crime thriller with a great story. Doing the preliminary legwork to fully flesh-out its characters – on both sides of the badge – certainly pays off, since we’re far more invested in them when the bullets begin to fly. Donnie Yen has seldom been better, digging into a role that showcases both his physical and dramatic skills. This is, so far, the best action movie of the year.
