Not words put together into stories or poems (although there’s enthusiasm for that as well), but how sounds fit together, and where they came from, and how they might be put together into new languages.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Dennis Quaid, Joseph Sikora Writer: David Loughery Director: Deon Taylor Distributor: Screen Gems/Sony Release Date: May 3, 2019 THE INTRUDER is a thriller with a premise so improbable that you’ll likely forgive every plot glitch you’ve seen lately in comparison. This reviewer doesn’t want to disrespect the hard work it takes to make a movie – any movie – or write a script. Still, it’s hard to imagine under what circumstances director Deon Taylor and scenarist David Loughery thought an audience would find the set-up scary rather than absurd. Young married couple Scott […]Read On »
