Meet Wally Sparks (1997)
Illogical silliness for a ferocious one liner. The supporting personalities are TV staples flexing their muscles to bozo comedy. Poor things. 19-Jan-2020
It's a high art profile of a Batman villain directed by Friday The Thirteenth. Margret brings her heroine to life by embodying the excited frustration of her realistic innocence for magic. Her character is underwritten and suffers from "who cares" but she was in it. Hopkins is our favorite crazy man whose practice and natural talent always have a way of invading its space. It is not a clean performance. He hits as many times as he bounces but what he lands is electric. A film, that in time, might grow into something. 11-Jan-2020
Invaders From Mars (1986)
Tobe and company add too much silliness to the story, the aliens look like ugly toys you win for free and the only alien needed was underutilized (Louise Fletcher.) She knows scary. 31-Dec-2019
Eyes Of My Mother, The (2016)
The film adds no psychological perception of its theme. The director contributes affecting shots but the scares arise from unbound cruelty. 26-Dec-2019
Daughters Of Darkness (1971)
Newlyweds get their honeymoon interrupted by voracious lesbians. It's mystery stays locked until the end, probably so we don't question how illogical it is. The protagonists keep it sexually charged and violently demeaning. 18-Dec-2019
I Lost My Body (2019)
It lost me at the misadventures of a hand. 09-Dec-2019
Christmas Survival (2018)
I could only survive 15 minutes. 08-Dec-2019
Neon Demon, The (2016)
The art of devouring beauty. The film is stuck on carving striking visuals to move itself along, never defining its purpose or giving a well cast tenacity. We tend to fear beauty but it's our reaction that stirs it. 08-Dec-2019
Satan Met A Lady (1936)
They hired accomplished actors to line read with little expression except snide, stupid or cute. The characters are comic strip flat. 04-Dec-2019
Boy's mental health shatters when he discovers that his girl hiccups for all the boys. Keir Gilchrist was prepared to inhabit what Tony Perkins stamped but the writers were too intent on keeping it romantic. 29-Nov-2019
Terminal Man (1974)
Adding a computer to a killer's brain was supposed to rehabilitate him. It was progressive. It had a prominent female doctor and a black magician's assistant.
Joan Hackett was an accomplished Sarah Paulson without the amount of accolades.
George Segal was dumbfounding, cringingly stamping the mediocrity evident in the poor treatment of a great story. 22-Nov-2019
8 1/2 (1963)
To evoke such oddities, the landscape needs to be bathed in color. Splattering random thoughts willy nilly to fill it, feels like forgery. It slackened my brain to the point of sleep. I woke to a frenetic ending that confirmed my not wasting time with the middle. I didn't get it. 15-Nov-2019
You Better Watch Out/Christmas Evil (1980)
Insanity celebrates Christmas. The film attempts to psychoanalyze our hero but the construction is not mentally capable. 07-Nov-2019
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
It delineates the first Santa, full of godlike vengeance and destruction. The film parodies like a summer blockbuster with striking imagery and a cheerleading score. It chugs along, never delivering the titular monster and rabidly tugging at our hearts. 05-Nov-2019
Pet Semetary (2019)
To re-establish a franchise, new ideas must sprout to keep it fresh whilst the outline maintains its mythology. It had ideas but they pushed forward for a sequel not sense. I read a book about an achingly heartbroken mother who suffered a breakdown over a loss. The dad exemplified the role of a devoted and loving husband who would do anything to keep his family intact no matter the consequences. The remake presents the hands-off and detached parents of today that diminishes the heart and the horror. The movie is so invested in not being the other one that it fails. 03-Nov-2019
