Devoid of purpose, study and reverence. The psychology of Laurie Strode was as an empowered victim that elicited strength from catastrophic violence. She's not Sarah Connor and she wouldn't burden a child with her horrid mythology. The holiday wasn't nostalgic and the nods to Hitchcock (who's that?) were extinct. Hallmark movies concoct bigger frights. 08-Feb-2019
Don't Sleep (2017)
The irony of the title is that it took me 6 tries to complete because it kept knocking me out. There's pretty boy enthusiasm in front of the camera but behind, they couldn't scare a bird. 11-Dec-2018
All Eyes On Me (2017)
I don't understand the sanctification. Only reality befits his truth. He was a musician with a thug problem. 29-Nov-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
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
Big Chill, The (1983)
Abundant talent and beauty of superior beings conveying and pondering mid-life. The music is its only source of action because the talk is its core and rhythm. The resolution that sleeping with old friends is the cure for almost every ailment is irrational. 24-Sep-2018
Love, Simon (2018)
It's a gulp full of hope where little offense is discharged and flecks of reality are spat.
Fairytales lift the imagination but authenticity will empower children. Its a disservice to send them out into the world with our fanciful wants. 27-Aug-2018
Lady Bird (2017)
Laurie Metcalf is ripe to play Carrie White's mother but the film doesn't allow its characters plenitude. The personalities change so abruptly that the film ends up not having a point of view. 19-Aug-2018
The family is that much creepier because we recognize them. 13-Aug-2018
My Friend Dahmer (2017)
Meyers directs its star like he's auditioning for an improv comedy sketch and photographs him a little too delightfully. Everything curls from a false appearance and all we learn from the destined monster is that he was a grand jokester. I thought Anne Heche as the devil's mother would tap into crazy and reach acting nirvana but insecurity grips and shuts her down. 08-Jul-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
Bittersweet Love (1976)
They dealt with incest by sudsing, name dropping and securing an actress of "natural" superiority. Points were made and evaluations considered. Celeste Holm didn't waste her legend, the compassion was still in her eyes. 07-Jun-2018
Friend Request (2016)
Alicia Debnam-Carey is ready and Connor Paolo presents a roaring pocket but relying on the supernatural disconnects us from the suspense that reality was holding. 11-May-2018
Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (1966)
What was once a playful satire on the battle of the sexes is today considered educational sex exploitation. It's breezy and disrespectful but its also nervy. The men were talking about how they perceived three generations of women and how the female always acquiesced. Either the women weren't listening or they were content as long as men pretended to care about them. Elke Sommer is courageous sexual dynamite, Phyllis Diller played it like one of the boys and Hope got forgiven for every sexual invective. The movie gets broad and loses its aspiration but it does not need to be erased. It teaches us a history parents cannot. 21-Mar-2018
