Watch at Home: The Children Act,The Rider, Puzzle

What's newly available for home viewing this week?

Alpha- Kodi Smith-McPhee (The Road,X-Men Apocalypse) stars in this prehistoric adventure film about a boy and his wolf friend
Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings-Marc Chao reprises his popular Detective Dee role.The previous title started with "Young Detective Dee"but I guess now that Chao is 34 they feel "Young"is pushing it?The previous film was ...bonkers.
Juliet,Naked-Rose Byrne & Ethan Hawke star in this well-reviewed romcom
The Meg-the campy giant-shark flick was a sleeper hit
Mile 22-Another gun-loving actioner from Peter Berg & Mark Wahlberg
Puzzle- Two of our most reliable but underappreciated screen actors Kelly Macdonald and Irffan Khan star in this story about a woman who discovers a passion for solving puzzles

Can't wait for PUZZLE.I think both lead actors are terrific.She's currently filming DIRT MUSIC with Garrett Hedlund,and he was so great in the lovely,underseen THE LUNCHBOX.

Is The Children Act as bad as it looks?The trailer is terrible and they basically tell you the whole movie.

The Meg - so naff it's good
Death of Stalin - excellent,Buscemi,Russell Beale,Isaacs,Riseborough all top notch
The Rider - outstanding.Go watch now.
The Children Act - very very boring but Thompson is good,Whitehead is bad

Peggy Sue,yes.I thought it was a real slog and the plot was one big muddle.

Juliet,Naked is a delight,and The Rider is obviously a masterpiece,(Death of Stalin and The Children Act also have some respective merits) but Puzzle is my favorite of these.It's so good!Certainly hope it results in Kelly getting more lead roles,because she deserves them.I told her as much as at a screening and she was as humble and charming as you would expect.Love her.

I really need to see THE RIDER - missed it in theaters.

I did see PUZZLE,which I really enjoyed.If you liked THE LUNCHBOX,you'll like this one,although the focus here (deservedly) is on Kelly Macdonald,who's wonderful,more than Khan.But he's still great in supporting,as is everyone else.Just about every major character in the movie is surprisingly nuanced and well acted,when so many of them could have been flat or caricatured.

Am I the only one who wasn't crazy about "The Rider."It was shot exquisitely but didn't hold my interest in any way otherwise.

November 14,2018 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

The listing suggests that THE RIDER is Chloé Zhao's debut feature,but it's her second.Her first was SONGS MY BROTHERS TAUGHT ME,Spirit Award nominated as Best First Feature,followed two years later by a Best Feature nom for THE RIDER.The Gotham nom for Best Feature this year for THE RIDER came 17 months after its Cannes premiere and hopefully won't be the last we hear from the awards circuit and 10 Bests because it is indeed a 2018 release.
