Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
I call myself erratic because I am. I presumed the group called themselves Queen because the lead singer was. Singer directs through a fog conveying no gay sensibilities or joy. He wasted high value entertainment opportunities. When Malek lip synchs he finds his Mercury but the act was teeth grinding. 09-Mar-2019
Boy Erased (2018)
Respectfully tempered and accurate, miscast, minor provocation and out of range. I can hear the subject but I don't feel it. It needed to inform as well as wrench.
Nic exuded art but was limited by the character's sketch. 25-Feb-2019
Scarehouse, The (2014)
Ugly pointless lesbian female torture. Not my thing. 05-Feb-2019
Santa Claus (1959)
The mind sizzles with filmic ideas but it rejects the flipping from good to evil. It's a concoction for idle thinkers. 26-Dec-2018
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
Seven in Heaven (2018)
Having the entitled open doors to a life disadvantaged people suffer constantly isn't frightening, its insulting. 27-Nov-2018
Zombie keeps the film soiled as the mythology of Michael Meyers becomes discombobulated and exhausted. 12-Oct-2018
Lodgers, The (2017)
The curse never lives up to the resources the filmmakers were given access to. 24-Sep-2018
Assassin, The (2015)
It's beauty is so still that you don't know if to be swept or rocked to sleep by it. 23-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
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
Well-played hotness and a great Hitch score rip doesn't placate the mental challenge. 30-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
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
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
