Period of Adjustment (1962)
The utters of Fonda and Hutton chanted high. Tony Franciosa kept the octaves low and his charisma forward. John McGiver sets and Mabel Albertson resists becoming the in-law stereotype. They glorified it. Lois Nettleton steals it because she could.
Marriage is deemed a terror, everyone screams their heads off until a surprise gift changes it. It has a loud message but you can still hear it.
Unfortunately, George Roy Hill's absurdity didn't allow Tennessee to be tragic. It's what the writer did best. 03-Jan-2019
Jurasaic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)
Pratt is still Stepford, no one but Spielberg has actually maintained the magic of dinosaurs and we should never be so illogical that we choose to compromise earth because its cool. 26-Dec-2018
Bad Teacher (2011)
So mean that it renders the characters inhuman. 07-Dec-2018
Seven in Heaven (2018)
Having the entitled open doors to a life disadvantaged people suffer constantly isn't frightening, its insulting. 27-Nov-2018
Fist Fight (2017)
Instead of expounding on the challenges of education they blast the ridiculousness of adult immaturity. The overload of stereotypes swats the funny. 23-Nov-2018
Star Trek III: In Search of Spock (1984)
Generous in sci-fi spirituality but short in supplying the visionary actions that deflects from the nonsense. 12-Nov-2018
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
Final Destination, The (2009)
Its thoroughness in mapping derails the anticipation of fright. 05-Nov-2018
The act is porny, the conversations are ear splitting but the elevator has a wicked sense of humor. 27-Sep-2018
The boily stuff comes close to dampening it but the monster mash and George rescue it. 16-Sep-2018
Call Me By Your Name (2017)
Its insulting in its timing and the delusion that a teenager's "me too" is a right of passage. The disparity in size (Hammer's giant) and childlike looks (Timothee Chalamet) adds unseemliness to its presentation. Hammer distributes much awkwardness and little desire, maybe because he realized the discomfort of its subject.
Man/boy love is tricky if you don't account for its repercussions. It doesn't represent the gay community but it indicates that straits will stick it to anything and that uniting in sex will not absolve our confusion.
I'll call you what my first lover/daddy/asshole called himself..."bugarron." 07-Aug-2018
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)
The story upheld the promise of its mythology but the dialogue forgot it. Except for the originals no one truly grasps or becomes a legend.
The last hour zips past to overcome its trepidation of fulfilling its spiritual demands. All that's required is pushing forth the magic. It gave us poignancy with two legends celebrating their careers then giving the fans an action comic stampede. 15-Jul-2018
Black Panther (2018)
Gods and goddesses blessed with magical resources and riches hide under a celestial bubble fighting for their survival but sharing very little of it with the world and the neighbors they seem to emulate.
The accents waver, the muscle is weak and the girls fare better but not by much. The beauty of color keeps it alive but the 70's mod and religious adherence bring it outmoded corniness.
I celebrate its political success as I await to see an ethnic hero that embodies the film world with the same grace as its counter does. We have to start somewhere. 24-Jun-2018
Like Father, Like Son (1987)
Not accurate in transformation, infantile in comedy and not funny in any era.
In a true life scenario I'd be incapable of enjoying a dad transplant because I don't want to be the keeper of my father's junk. 14-Jun-2018
Casualties of War (1989)
The director's presence and personality emblazons an already perplexed account of inhumanity in the midst of war. The shots are as unnerving as they are beautiful. The accents and the oneupmanship are overexerted but when the camera follows Fox and its victim (Thuy Thu Lee,) it allows them to speak hushedly, flatteringly and compassionately. 10-Jun-2018
