Here is the plot description for “The Oxford Murders”:

When an elderly woman is viciously murdered in Oxford, her body is discovered by two strangers whose lives are immediately changed forever. Arthur Seldom (John Hurt) is a prestigious professor of logic and Martin (Elijah Wood) is a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to be Seldom’s pupil.

It quickly becomes clear that hers is the first in a series of increasingly bizarre murders with each victim’s corpse marked by strange symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code, which sets into motion an elaborate game with a killer with ever-increasing stakes.

As Martin gets closer to the facts, he grows increasingly unhinged from his grasp on the world around him. Based on Guillermo Martinez’s award-winning novel, “The Oxford Murders” is an edgy and intelligent thriller from cult-favorite director Álex de la Iglesia.

The movie trailer for “The Oxford Murders” can be watched now below.

What is always the first step in cracking any code is...

… to understand the context of the code. Presumably, a code will have been made for a reason (obviously, to protect information — but information about WHAT?) So, it’s necessary to understand what is being protected and why. Even better is knowing who made the code and who else is using it, since that will give you a peek into the type of cryptography that’s being used. A teenager trying to protect his stash of porn from being discovered by his parents will have a decidedly different code than, say, the NSA trying to protect encoded transmissions among agents.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).

  • Wonder Woman

    CHICAGO – There are few films in 2017 that are as historically important as they are cinematically well-crafted. Of those, there is only one I saw three times in theaters. That honor comes in the form of the revolutionary “Wonder Woman,” which not only shows huge promise for the future of DC Comics films but for comic book-based films as a whole.
