Sterling Silver Dialogue #21: (Answers)

These are some of Cinema's sad departures of 2017 taken from my personal notes soon after the tragic events took place: 

I'll continue with some of cinema's most treasured images. For those familiar with the scenes represented they're bound to invoke a strong emotional response. The narratives' indelible moments are the primary reason these captures were selected. 

Normally, our contemporary film contributor Renard N. Bansale reviews recent releases and he may, in fact, critique the following motion picture at some point. Occasionally, I am able to overcome a reluctance to venture out and attend a locally screened film, especially when it's the "talk of the town" or "talk of the internet" to be more precise. I've been bombarded with so much buzz about Dunkirk, I felt like a chainsaw, and therefore it became that rare film I was compelled to see and share my thoughts on. Please feel free to leave your thoughts about the film and/or my review here in the comments section.

These are some of Cinema's sad departures of 2017 taken from my personal notes soon after the tragic events took place: 

Our contributor Renard N. Bansale has completed 10 more contemporary film reviews for your consideration. The rating system he'll use is devised primarily to give those who are trying to decide which films to see, a fun and easy way of (hopefully) choosing a more pleasurable movie-going experience. For a further introduction to this series please see 21st Century Treasure Quest #1. (A.G.)

In this series I would like to provide my readers with a more critical perspective to consider, one that hopefully will not detract from a person's appreciation for the films under review. At the same time, I'd question whether these motion pictures really deserve the high accolades bestowed upon them by the critical community in general. Perhaps it's like this: Instead of "The emperor has no clothes," I'm saying "He's just not that well dressed." (For a further introduction on this subject please see: Top Ten Fool's Gold: The Overrated Part 1.)

These notices are meant for viewers familiar with the following motion pictures.
