Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn (1982)
It's an old friend I had no idea I made. It's everything it pretends to be. 12-Nov-2018
The boily stuff comes close to dampening it but the monster mash and George rescue it. 16-Sep-2018
The macho pose may seem off date but who cares when the master has proliferated a grand illusion and Zoe Saldana is gut wrenched. 15-Sep-2018
A future world where men control the financial and the empowering facets of every woman. She's a mother to a gifted daughter, too old and unattached to succeed financially and whose choices for betterment are minimal. The scares arise from her choices but her heart makes it logical. 23-Aug-2018
Moderate presentation of big ideas.
(There are fun moments.) 31-Jul-2018
The mother/son dynamic felt natural to the actors and its where I wanted to linger. As soon as the sci-fi conspiracies are exasperatingly unwrapped all sense is lost and Rapace's performance recedes. 18-Jul-2018
Screamers: The Hunting (2009)
The Alien rip would have actually conjured fun if the threat weren't so ridiculous. 14-Jun-2018
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Holds your breadth with magic. 11-May-2018
Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
Beauteous in razzle dazzle, confusing and idle in action. Three hours is a lot to bear and all me and my lover wanted to do was feed Ryan Gosling cereal so he could crack up. 12-Apr-2018
War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)
Pockets of beauty, CGI amazement and a score that predates the original. What tears from the pockets is an incompleteness of the human voice and a celebration of what is going to enslave us. 10-Jan-2018
Battlefield Earth (2000)
As soon as Travolta opens his mouth to spit fey Shakespearean New York, the attention-span for the story disappears. While you wait for Travolta to stop putting us on you start noticing that the character's rubber hands bend and lay inappropriately, the Eiffel Tower boots adds clunk and slump to their walk and that their pouches swell at attention. I left before any of it made it to my bloodstream. 21-Dec-2017
Heavy Metal (1981)
Its really hard to deduce whether the film celebrates or exploits its themes. The rock music isn't engaged to the story as it is attached. It also slogs towards the last chapter that contains the only captivating fable. 20-Dec-2017
We've bullied and judged Anne Hathaway so harshly that she is no longer capable of supplying a character with natural ticks. Even when her character begs to be petulant, her need to be liked overwhelms. The only way she can surprise us is by inhabiting the soul "the haters" hashtagged her with and let it all go. The support also reciprocates badly.
This soup is a melange of original ideas executed by a crew that didn't understand them and a writer who sabotaged it.
This is a movie for a future audience to find. 03-Dec-2017
Handsome production whose recounting depended on star magnetism to lift it.
Exhaustion might make Pratt squishier but it deters him from mixing the right cocktail that would allow him chemistry with Lawrence. Lawrence fares better but the box she's given to act in isolates her. It's a study of "something else" in the actors' minds that the audience shouldn't be privy to. 29-Nov-2017
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Tom Holland is too busy clenching his accent to give us more than an outline for Peter Parker and Michael Keaton is confused touting the villain from his time and exercising constraint.
The more realistic, the more it embraces its cartoon heritage (yay). Because this remake is not exactly necessitated, action is forefront and movie magic preserves it.
It also celebrates film color. 06-Nov-2017
