Golden Blade, The (1953)
Arab tale about a magic sword giving the wielder a purpose. It cuts through metal and gay Superman (Rock Hudson) brandishes it. Piper Laurie (Carrie White's mother) exudes royal female liberation and useful beauty. She gets involved. Jafar is the big bad of Baghdad, the action is well choreographed and the production is fun. It has good thoughts on women and establishes men can't live by their swords. They break. The politics are outdated but who gives a fuck. Nobody likes shit on their popcorn. 13-Aug-2020
Liar, Liar (1997)
Jim Carrey is the stupid king. There are moments when you just want him to stop and take a breather and he does but it starts up again and you give in because it's a freedom a lot of us lack. To be stupid. The plot is really a set-up for Jim, the score reminded me of crappy summers, the kid was too cute, daddy positions were frivolous but the meister was at his cutest and most stupidest. Funny! 12-Aug-2020
Kissing Booth 2 (2020)
Silly girl thinks the world orbits only after she blows on it. Heroine enforces her stance by diminishing what boys think if it interferes with what she wants. Latino heart throbs with a curl, besties squish like girls, the gays are allowed to speak but of educators they peep and "anger issues" squishes with a little less muscle but enough to fuck a foreign miss. Its frivolous corn syrup contesting manhood. 10-Aug-2020
Take Her, She's Mine (1963)
A child belongs to a parent for a little bit.
Daddy awakens to his daughter's "dishiness." Daughter has developed into virgin teen spirit bait. Sandra Dee tranquilizes, applying liberation, sexual frustration and obligation. She's the future princess men built castles for.
Daddy goes commando when she moves to college. Stating in a letter about feeling the fanny flutters and wanting to lose her virginity, daddy flies to her on demand, insinuates her roomies are "wetbedders" because they work late, upholds his politics, acquaints with international sex workers, runs naked and suffers from morality checks. He ignores his job, his wife and that other child. He was never a pervert...because he was Jimmy "fuckin'" Stewart.
Mr. Stewart opens his mind to new thinking and growing with the politics of sexual freedom, free speech and protest. When the camera and his technique meet, they click.
College is where politics are worn and sex explodes. The environment consisted of an army of wolves scratching and starving to eat some Red Riding Hood.
Audrey Meadows. She was so underutilized that I imagined her doing naughty things like fucking his best friend or renting other daughter out.
The music and esp. the songs, delighted with universal sounds. It borrowed from other cultures and uniquely respected them. I knew the songs and sang along because I was taught them at school. It helped me learn about a culture that I had yet to meet. It soothes the greeting.
Stewart dons the big guns for final agitation but silly chaos dilutes him. Can he stop a man from putting his daughter's flame out or return to the wife and that other sparkly one? Only another man can answer that. 30-Jul-2020
Boy's Night Out (1962)
One single man and three married friends pep up boy's night out and and wives night in by subletting an apartment with a blonde in it. The blonde is a succulent dish with feminine wiles of the intelligent sort. Kim Novak supplies the dream that is studiously experimenting and extinguishing the horn that lives in men. James Garner doesn't need a dream to want him but watching him put the moves on is tingly. Tony Randall always demonstrates such glee at his own perversion. The movie falls flat because it doesn't dare to do half the things it suggests and the men basically get away with murder. 24-Jul-2020
Carbon Copy (1981)
A twinkie Denzel catches up with the parental rich white daddy that didn't stay. The daddy is married to a "Karen" that tolerates only forced sex and finds black people a nuisance. It's rude, funny and droll. George Segal keeps racial harmony humming while Washington smashes broad cymbals. Comfort with a message. 19-Jul-2020
Mask, The (1994)
A movie that succeeds in spite of its inanity. The effects still impress. Jim Carrey's comedic chaos mimic and Cameron Diaz' unflinching bombshell elevate it. 02-Jul-2020
Eurovision Song Contest (2020)
Brother/sister romance tackle art and temptation at a song contest.
Will Ferrell's character's age kept gnawing at me. How old is he supposed to be? How old is his sister? His father? Ferrell plays the eternal kid that refuses to wear big boy britches even for comfort. Ours.
Rachel McAdams deserved a singing partner.
Dan Stevens left it at the Abbey. He should go pick it up.
I knew it was Demi Lovato before I saw her. It was the screaming.
The music is way too silly to enjoy, coming in constant waves of annoyance. I don't care what the rules are, sing it live. Too much? 01-Jul-2020
Salt And Pepper (1968)
They had the etiquette to name Sammy Davis Jr., Salt and Peter Lawson, Pepper but the film scourges the earth with inappropriateness. It's a spin-off of Rat Pack mentality, with loss of cool, unbelievable politics and ridiculous antics. The buddies have built-in chemistry but the premise is bonkers. 29-Jun-2020
Toy Story 4 (2019)
The toys still wonder, crack smiles and grant blessings of a childhood institution from a very long time ago. The adventures became more human, the suffering became internalized, everybody grew up and moved on. Bittersweet. 12-Jun-2020
Uncle Buck (1989)
No one puts a brat in its place like an asshole. Candy with children is gold. 12-Jun-2020
This is the conclusion to all the movie pandemics. The easy saves were cliche but the tough stuff was visionary. The sweety darling in danger may be repetitive, but she's so cute. The error asides don't matter if the director envisions a whole. The cure for the virus and the safety of the world is to kill all of the infected. Disaster movie, indeed. 17-Apr-2020
Funny Farm (1988)
Couple retiring in weird bumblefuck county. The laughs are spaced, mapped and allowed to spread extensively. Chevy controls his doofus charms to evoke the frustrations of a man destined for failure and Madolyn Smith steals it with her Tina Fey example. No buffoonery shall enter a George Roy Hill film. He does the oddity, revenge and relationship proud. 10-Apr-2020
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
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
