The Keeping Room (2015)
Kevin Smith: Silent But Deadly (2018)
Kicking and Screaming (1995)
Kicking & Screaming (2005)
“Juice Box! Everyone wave goodbye to juice box! Literally wave goodbye to juice box.” Hilarious as I thought it would be. Will Ferrell is the greatest. Loved watching him push kids down and taunt them like only he can.
The Kids Are All Right (2010)
Great little drama with a realistic approach. Almost every situation in the film makes you feel awkward and that spells success for the director and cast. Mark Ruffalo delivers a down-to-earth performance while Bening and Moore make a great on-screen couple. Hope that by being nominated for the Oscars and winning at the Globes, this film gets more exposure.
Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003)
Kill Bill is poetic violence, containing both humor and absolute, stone cold seriousness. With so many styles and homages at play in these films (samurai, westerns, grindhouse, revenge flick, etc.), it is hard not to enjoy. There is something brilliant about being able to break the laws of physics yet stay true to human nature, all in the same sequence.
Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004)
Kill Bill is one of those set of films that simply needs to be watched together. I feel they are still strong on their own, but together, they are damn near perfect. I missed the slash-em-up fighting from the first film, but the second volume contains tons of worthwhile dialogue and back story. Though I enjoyed this volume just as well, I do prefer the first film more.
Killer Joe (2012)
What can only be described as a twisted, dark comedy, “Killer Joe” catapults several careers, including Juno Temple and Thomas Haden Church, to levels unseen in their previous body of work. Matthew McConaughey steals the show with a multi-level performance, which is both entertaining and scary, all under the brilliant direction of William Friedkin. Though unrelentingly graphic at times, the pay-off is worth the venture, with a style that stands out amongst its peers.
Killer’s Kiss (1955)
The Killing (1956)
Kill The Messenger (2014)
Killing Them Softly (2012)
Andrew Dominik’s first film in five years is nothing short of a success, with a perfect showing from Brad Pitt as a hired hitman. “Killing Them Softly” steps above its blatantly violent demeanor and delivers a poetic and troubling truth about the ugly state of capitalism, often with just as much heavy-handed-ness as its punches and gunshots, with a dilapidated New Orleans setting and playing off of footage from George W. Bush and Barack Obama during the Goldman Sacks scandals and Obama’s election. The supporting cast is filled brilliantly by Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, and yet another breakout performance this year from Scoot McNairy (“Argo”). The cinematography is thoughtful and eloquent, accentuating the moments from the trailer and delivering such truly high points in the film, which are accented beautifully all the way through to Pitt’s epic last sentence.
King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017)
The Kingdom (2007)
Based around a single terrorist event on Americans in Saudi Arabia, FBI agents Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner lead a crew to investigate the scene and try to find the Saudis posing as officers. The Kingdom has great performances but lacks in the action department, missing its mark by surrounding itself with impossible odds and a single, somewhat insignificant plot point. Jason Batemen and Jeremy Piven fill out the cast and add some flair to the otherwise routine, war-centered action film.
King Kelly (2012)
King Kong (2005)
King Of California (2007)
Loved Rachel Wood, who made this film worth seeing. I liked the playful nature of the film and loved seeing Michael Douglas as a crazy man because he’s always kind of seemed like a crazy man to me. Otherwise, this film was a nice balance of reality and surreal. Definitely worth your time.
The King Of Comedy (1982)
Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
The King’s Speech (2010)
Frustrating and poised, “The King’s Speech” takes a brilliant cast of people we know from many different genres of film and depicts them in a refreshing historical evocation. Remarkable camera angles and novel humor sets this film apart from almost any film in its genre to date.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
With witty bantering narrative from Mr. Robert Downey Jr. (including some of the best narration and dialogue to come out of a film in recent history) and easily the best career performances of Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan, this modern day noir is the perfect blend of action and comedy.
Knife Skills (short) (2017)
Knight & Day (2010)
Knight Of Cups (2016)
A Knight’s Tale (2001)
Knockaround Guys (2002)
Great cast, interesting story, but there is a major essence missing in this film. If Guy Ritchie would have directed the film, that essence would probably have existed. Instead, the entire film comes off formulaic and soulless despite the acting prowess afoot.
Knocked Up (2007)
I laughed, but for all the hype this movie got from critics and audiences, I thought it would have been 100 times funnier. I enjoyed it, but wished I would have enjoyed it more.
Reminded me of the Happening. If this could somehow be fused with that film it might have been better. Nothing special. Really have nothing to say. Nicholas Cage was Nicholas Cage.
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
A masterfully crafted adventure film, “Kon-Tiki” elaborates off the true story and Academy Award winning documentary about a man bent on proving his theory that in pre-Columbian time, South Americans could have sailed to Polynesia on wooden rafts and settled there. A highly unpopular theory and what most people thought would be a death sentenced equates to a highly entertaining and effective expedition. With impressive visuals and graphics throughout the entire film, including sharks and whales that rival that of “Life Of PI”, and a completely convincing and powerful performance from Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen as Thor Heyerdahl, “Kon-Tiki” is not only Norway’s most expensive film ever, it is also Norway’s highest grossing film of 2012, and easily one of my favorite foreign films of the year.
Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
Kung Fu Panda (2008)
Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)
Slightly more entertaining than the original, this sequel still produces laughs while avoiding the easy ways out.
