Captive State Film Review By Logan Coleman
Captive State is the latest film directed by Rupert Wyatt. The cast that stood out that were Jonathan Majors, Madeline Brewer, Alan Ruck. and Caitlin Ewald. I would say that this film has elements of Arrival, District 9 and the Purge franchise. The costume design was excellent. This is one of the more unique films so far this year. The film is a tad too long. I am going against most other film critics, I am giving this film 7 and ¾ stars out of 10.
UglyDolls is the latest animated musical film. The best thing about this film is the songs that remind me of Rent. The film had elements of Monster’s Inc. The cast that stood out was Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monáe, Blake Shelton, and Pitbull. There are a couple surprise performances that I will not ruin. I […]
The Sun Is Also A Star is adaptation of the same book. The performances by Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton gave the best performance they could have given. This film is relevant to today’s time in more than one way. The biggest issue with the film is the writing of the film was very […]
Brightburn is basically alternate take on the tale of superman. One of the main reasons why I love this film because it was made outside any of the major comic book companies. The film has a lot of slasher elements mixed in with on the best elements of an origin story for a villain. […]
I don’t know what the production or distribution history of the mid-budget alien invasion thriller Captive State indicates, but this seems to be a movie that no one really wants. Director Rupert Wyatt’s only major credit is a Planet of the Apes reboot released nearly a decade ago. The film itself feels like it wrapped […]

What would the world be like if an alien race didn’t decimate us, but rather decided to rule us instead? It’s a neat concept, right?

Nick Digilio and Erik Childress review the weekend’s new movies including Gloria Bell and Captive State.
With the saturation of the science fiction genre, it’s tough to get a high-concept invasion flick without going through the tedious stages of conception vs execution. With Rupert Wyatt’s Captive State, his unique eye for extraterrestrial life forms and human association is unfortunately halted due to his very inability to fully flesh out his ideas. […]

“Captive State” is a movie I wanted to enjoy. It’s a lower budget sci-fi flick helmed by a director I like. Unfortunately, things didn’t really work out. Directed by Rupert Wyatt, “Captive State” picks up nine years after an alien race landed on Earth and established a treaty with the planet’s leaders. While there’s a […]
