Running Time: 130 min.

Believe it or not, Thor: Ragnarok marks the seventeenth film in the Marvel cinematic universe, which began only nine years ago.

Running Time: 104 min.

Manicured, planned communities aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. The facade of these neighborhoods being a happy and contented place fall apart in Suburbicon. In this film, it’s pretty clear from the onset that beneath the glossy surface are desperate, opportunistic, and even racist individuals.

It’s an intriguing starting point and there are plenty of important issues raised in the feature, but it doesn’t all fit together as effectively as one might hope.

Perhaps some of these issues may have to do with the screenplay itself. The film is based on material written in the mid 80s by Joel and Ethan Cohen (who at the time...
