1. Hotel Noir (2012)
Not Rated | 97 min | Crime, Drama, Romance
1950s LA: A police detective checks into a hotel with a bag of money, hoping to go away with Swedish Mary.
I watched silently and painfully all the good actors letting the story unfold, but I was bored. So bored.
2. Rise: Blood Hunter (2007)
R | 97 min | Action, Horror, Mystery

Votes: 11,203 | Gross: $0.11M
Distasteful and poorly edited.
3. Beyond the Gates (2016)
Not Rated | 84 min | Adventure, Horror
Two estranged brothers reunite at their missing father's video store and find a VCR board game dubbed 'Beyond The Gates' that holds a connection to their father's disappearance.
Well, it could be considered as ok, i.e., the reminiscence of the 80's and everything. But it didn't work for me.
4. Harvest Lake (2016)
TV-MA | 78 min | Drama, Fantasy, Horror
Five friends fall under the seductive influence of a libidinous, otherworldly presence that threatens to change their lives forever.
Well, mostly unpleasant on all levels.

Unrated | 98 min | Drama, Romance
In the well-to-do suburbs of a small town, a group of pretty average, well-adjusted sixteen and seventeen year olds are ordinary adolescents who take a singular path.
Cute little story, and an average movie with young promising actors.

R | 112 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

Votes: 162,526 | Gross: $75.40M
It hesitates, at some point, and the script is weak. I haven't read the book, so I don't know. But the acting is really good, altogether.

Votes: 478,388 | Gross: $151.10M
It misses some elements to be an excellent movie. Sometimes, the two actors aren't convincing enough. Yet, there are so many good elements here that it makes it surely a pretty good movie. It's hard not to think of Woody Allen movies, of An American in Paris, Paris Blues, and A New Kind of Love. The couple Newman-Woodward comes immediately to mind.
10. Inferno (I) (2016)
PG-13 | 121 min | Action, Adventure, Crime

An interesting beginning, but then it crumbles very rapidly. Too bad.

Votes: 565,102 | Gross: $100.55M
Hmmm. This is a very good movie. I somehow didn't think I would be watching something that good. I'm afraid I somehow wasn't able to follow the aura of it. Will have to see it again soon.
12. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)
