Madre (Mother) (2016)
An expectant mother with a virulent special needs child, becomes overwhelmed until she meets and hires a kindly filipino grandmother who claims to have cured her own. The treatment consists of communicating with him in her native tongue, pampering him like a favorite child and emotionally distancing him from his natural mother. The boy recuperates, learns to speak filipino and clamps himself onto the mother (nanny) he desperately needs. Mother has her discomforts, daddy is relieved and the household finds much needed bliss. Mother marches along, suspending her doubts and chalking the old woman's takeover as relief. As soon as madre decides to use an app translator to discover what the nanny is communicating to her son, the mama wars begin. Daddy is gaslighting, mama is hallucinating and racial political correctness is straining. The film makes a point that the intent to make everyone legitimate renders safety mute even whey they act stereotypically. It's a nail-biter I don't recommend to expectant mothers... unless they want to drop early. 02-Apr-2020
Tiger King (2020-)
S1E3. I'm neither addicted, intrigued, impressed, or willing to give a shit. 01-Apr-2020
I tuned in out of curiosity and to give its subject, the benefit of the doubt. I wasn't raised in an environment where I thought hooligans were cute and my idea of celebrating such buffoonery leaves me speechless. Not one soul appears to have one and the glorification of fake swagger has me flatlining. I don't believe in fucking with mother nature or God's fucking plan and I don't believe in making a profit from exploiting it.
(If I change my mind I'll expose myself again.) 01-Apr-2020
Bob Hearts Abishola (2019-)
Is it improper for me to say that I wish someone else would love Abishola? 31-Mar-2020
The leads do not align, Bob's family grates and reverse hate is not progressive. 08-Nov-2019
Exploring multi-cultural attitudes to life problems is interesting. The black characters sparkle but their counterparts appear like unwanted houseguests. I'm sure good writing can fix that. (I liked it.) 25-Sep-2019
Platform, The (2020)
It makes sense in the confines of the story but it's pretty preposterous without a big world picture. It's vile, claustrophobic and exhausting. 30-Mar-2020
The beautiful ones return in high style and peak bloom.
Fluidity is tunneled, pummeled and charged. The freedom to inherit all relationship prospects is an elite politic that facilitates mass hurt because the kids that invented it are incapable of successfully mastering it. They're human.
The parents do as Oprah taught them and heal most of their miracles' hemorrhage with gifts and money.
The beauties confusing the system to reclaim justice was resplendent.
The mystery continues and concludes, the ones are masters of bitchiness and heartbreak and the thread is reinforced nylon. Brava! 29-Mar-2020
The season was mapped mathematically and it hit every point. The actors are snug in their roles and stamping their characters. The drama makes you talk to yourself, the police work is thought out and everything looks delicious. Cool as fuck. 23-Sep-2019
They represent with no restraints and the teens are regarded with soul. The societal menace is heavier, coddling is out and the hurt is overwhelming. They are fighting a world adults complicated with wee survival skills. Beauty is diverse and it lingers because the writers keep tearing at it. 23-Nov-2018
Lobster, The (2015)
Couples rule in a post cruel world. If you don't find a mate they turn you into an animal. Its royal art of weirdness with little justification and a vivid imagination. Colin inherits a comedian's edge, puncturing the establishment in a catatonic state and making us laugh and cheer. Rachel Weisz keeps the heart of the film beating and Yorgos is crazy. 29-Mar-2020
Green Room (2015)
Band of vagabonds get punished by nazis for playing crappy rock or because they witnessed a crime. Sir Patrick Stewart was hired to class up the film and the "n" word. Anton Yelchin's heroism is a John Connor (Terminator) facsimile with substandard realization. The film lost me as soon as the punk picks up his phone to call the police for a kill that wasn't directed at him. What is the purpose of nazis if there is no racial conflict? (They don't need the props.) They were dim and disoriented and anything but scary. It stalls, it repeats, it celebrates and I believed very little of it. 28-Mar-2020
Autopsy Of Jane Doe, The (2016)
The autopsy is comprehensive, the actors are aligned and the corpse is an eerily beautiful masterpiece. The mumbo jumbo is handled scientifically which excludes genius insanity being the harbinger of truth and sets some practical scares for us. 27-Mar-2020
Married At First Sight (2014-)
S10. It's been tough relating or tolerating this season.
The experts are sinking into quack territory.
Mandy finally got rid of Bluebeard (Zach.) Hooray!
Taylor and Brandon. He's just stalling until the next bout of insecurity hits so he can explode. Run, girl.
Meka and Michael. A man doesn't change...he pretends. Run, girl.
Jessica and Austin. He will say I love you as soon as you forgive his first business travel discrepancy.
Katie and Derek. He's privileged and she's insecure. Eek.
Giving everyone a lie detector test before the show would give the experts some cred and avoid giving us another inadmissible season. 27-Mar-2020
S7E6. Naivete about the experiment is no longer viable because the mice have been coached by previous seasons. It's the show's sanity at test because the mice are the new experts that will mold the show through its entirety. As each season passes and we tire of them, the couples will most likely end up swapping with each other (see season 5, alpha Ashley Petty deserved alpha Cody Knapek and Anthony deserved for Danielle to put him on a diet.) The premise will continue to work because God's plan brought them together. The queens giving men sex, before and after catastrophe struck, was downright professional. 23-Oct-2019
Uh Oh. S6. Shawniece and Jephte made adorability joyous. May they enjoy an 88. 20-Oct-2019
S5E7. Fuck the experts, listen to the dogs! 05-Oct-2019
Experts encouraging couples to overlook red flags in a marriage because pretense defeats how a person feels. 21-Sep-2019
Little Fires Everywhere (2020-)
A mama cold war, a class distinction an intellectual race riot. It theorizes that women only need to act like a mother to push the children through life. It states that racism's hypocrisy, sensitivity and overreaction will never mend it. The children are at a loss serving as parental investments of an unsettled future while practicing what they learn from them as much as what they hate.
Kerry Washington threw her TVQ out the window to portray a most questionable mother with a permanent scowl on her face, a confrontational outlook and some sort of mental instability. Witherspoon is the mother whose charity she thinks will excuse her parental ditto. She peels enough layers to inform us that she rationalizes that racism is wrong but the safety of her family comes first.
The baby drama is the new focal point and it may be its drawback. The coincidence was grand and mama Mia had no business offering a co-worker, who abandoned her baby, money that would have been better suited for her own daughter. It makes her hard to like.
It's nagging, addictive and igniting. 26-Mar-2020
All Of Me (1984)
Instead of a body switch Mr. Reiner chose partial possession which is one of the most improbable storylines attempted ever. We want no change in anything but the story. The pros (Martin and Tomlin) don't embarrass easily because it makes sense that great comedy training includes stupidity. Martin freights most of it and freewheels in an agitated state that unnerves us but never hinders us from lapping up his star charm. Lily didn't feel like an equal because she was stuck in a mirror for most of it but her adorable cheekiness and one liners hit. The dance was still cute. 25-Mar-2020
Grave Of The Vampire (1972)
Silliness about a resurrected vamp raping a mod chick that dies delivering his baby. The baby ages into a superhero hunk with little gift of gab and limited supernatural powers. The fair lady hired to scream, couldn't. Fast forward to the fight scene which has Thor mashing a tired Michael Morbius with no effects and generating loads of laughs. 24-Mar-2020
The society is comprised of envy, maintenance, labor, guts and unification. Images remain in your head, long after you've dismissed them. The story is absolutely unique, the actors are natural and the suffering for/from abundance touches every base. Trimming would have propelled a much stronger impact but I couldn't stop watching every minute of its extensive length. 23-Mar-2020
House of the Devil, The (2009)
Quarantined and babysitting who knows what in strangers' creepy mansion is as nailbiting as it gets. Money can put any Spidey sense to bed but it can't help you. West's film strengths are character and suspense but the wrap up was easy, predictable and not scary. 22-Mar-2020
