  • A Good Sci-Fi Film

    Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan did a great acting job. Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson films will not disappoint you especially Synchronic. The soundtrack scoring what attracted me to this and I made the purchase because usually the soundtrack let you know if a film got substance to me. Listening on Apple Music I was deeply intrigued. After watching I wasn’t disappointed. The story/score is better than most films with budget of $100 Million+. Waiting for next project. Also want to catch Anthony Mackie next projects. He also did the character justice to the point reminded me of someone I know. Good film, talented people involved.
  • So freaking good!

    Morehead and Benson did it again! I absolutely LOVED “Spring” along with “Resolution” and “The Endless”. This was my favorite of their work that I’ve seen so far. The soundtrack was perfect and fit so well. I wanted this movie to keep going and you know dang well it could’ve. Maybe they’ll continue the story in another movie. I really hope so, at least.

    This movie is so bad from acting to script and the story as a whole - the ending is just ridiculous

    Starts slow and comes across as Noir but it was touching and fun. Worth the watch. Mackey was great as always.
  • Fantastic!

    The filmmaking duo who’ve written & directed three equally brilliant & iconic indie horror titles, “Resolution,” “Spring,” and “The Endless,” have returned with their most ambitious film to date, “Synchronic.” ”Synchronic” leans into the dark fantastical & cosmic horror elements the filmmakers are known for — but this time it’s turned up to 11, and sustained the entire film as opposed to being limited to the third act or climactic final scene. Then there’s the performances. CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES. I was gobsmacked by Mackie’s & Dornan’s chemistry on screen. The whole “contentious buddy cop partners who learn to work together despite their personal differences” [note: they are paramedics, not police officers of any kind just to be clear] routine could’ve easily fallen flat because it’s such a cliché in dramatic storytelling — both in TV & film. However, their characters’ profession is extremely significant towards each of their own arcs throughout the film as well as the general plot about a new synthetic drug on the streets of New Orleans that quickly derails both of their lives in rather uniquely separate ways. While the subtext is obvious, it’s never too preachy or aggressive about making sure the viewer knows what this film is ultimately saying. Come for the brilliant filmmakers, stay for the performances, and then re-watch it a couple of times because — as one graffitied remarks in the film puts it — “time is a lie.”
  • Great Concept Wasted on Average Story

    By Rino The Bouncer
    The movie starts with a great concept, beautifully executed and performed by all the actors. The problem is by the second half, this beautiful concept becomes nothing more than a vehicle for a typical “looking for someone” type of story. Without spoiling much, it is more about an average overdone “message” covered with a beautiful concept and twisted ideas.
