Wind, The (2018)
Everything etched to perfection, less the comprehension to make us care. 06-Apr-2020
House of the Devil, The (2009)
Quarantined and babysitting who knows what in strangers' creepy mansion is as nailbiting as it gets. Money can put any Spidey sense to bed but it can't help you. West's film strengths are character and suspense but the wrap up was easy, predictable and not scary. 22-Mar-2020
Dead Kids (Strange Behavior) - (1981)
Controlling kids for kills. Bursting with ideas that the master had no idea how to cohesively cobble together. The kills are interesting because they are clumsy like real life. Fiona Lewis' donut bun steals the whole thing. 18-Mar-2020
Big Time Adolescence (2019)
I was expecting a rebellious and outrageous comedy but was impressed with a calm rendition of a boy's passage to manhood. $, drugs, sex and girls are what a boy negotiates during this stage of exploration but the satisfaction of being cool with your bud is everything. Gluck, Davidson and Cryer epitomize the title and lend credence to why they don't want to grow up.The film's detachment impedes greatness but it was close. 14-Mar-2020
I Kill Giants (2017)
She kills giants and she's not afraid of them but then proceeds to quiver and weep at the thought. Having little girls spew superhero corn is cringey and embarrassingly hilarious. The girl on girl was tender but the titular was a smoky abstract. I was a bit confused by the giants. Why kill something that hands such good life advice upon victory or is that the point? Are they fortune cookies? 09-Mar-2020
Knives Out (2019)
Whodunnits don't need explanation. A fresh appeal for a chess match. Everything with Plummer spun magnificently but Craig jacked Spacey's southern flourish with little success. The support were ready but remained pawns in a game. They didn't flesh out. The unraveling was dry and predictable but the mystery qualified. 08-Mar-2020
It doesn't punctuate the title but the surroundings are trapped shut, baby bubble is dramatically shoved, pulled and pie faced into reality and the effects remind you without shaking you. It's a film that passes but makes us feel like we stumbled upon a midseason finale cliffhanger. 05-Mar-2020
Daddy teach gets a woody when student overachiever dominates his classroom and his life with his reach for intellectual excellence. Dylan Sprouse objectifies exemption, corruption and the high holiness of shit. It's unfortunate that his psychology is not well drawn. Daddy does not squish sufficiently to lend credence to certain plot points but Dylan's penance almost makes up for that. 03-Mar-2020
Girl On The Third Floor, The (2019)
Haunted shenanigans. Cocky daddy tats gets slimed as the whorehouse he's renovating turns on him. The film's second half reveals how to be worthy of it. 02-Mar-2020
Best Friends (1982)
Independent woman reaches high anxiety whilst reluctantly marrying her partner of five years. She believes marriage kills love and he's too venerable to start over. After a quickie marriage they embark on an in-law and family tour which reflect the weirdly mechanical influences the villagers brandish.
As much as Goldie and Burt appeared incompatible, their individual magnetism blind us into believing. Ron Silver delivers enthusiastic squishiness to the funniest bits.
It's a good companion to "Marriage Story."
It focused mainly on the topic of marriage which wears out.
The dialogue is written so we can understand them but not them, each other.
It refuses to answer its question.
It's breezy to watch. 29-Feb-2020
I admire that it sheds light on the trials of a black muslim and the extra life limitations its religion bestows.
The crime was evolving into a story black Americans could relate to from a culture worth defining but ran out of gas.
The mystery is pretty tight.
The magic pushes it forward as much as it pushes it under.
Well done, I was in it and it got its point across...
but at end...
...it was hard to feel anything.
Respect. Keep cranking them. 27-Feb-2020
Pokemon: Detective Pikachu (2019)
I expected Pikachu to talk a lot squeakier but it's a wholesome retelling that thrills when the Pokemons come to life. 21-Feb-2020
Mom and Dad (2018)
Moms and dads awaken from stress to obliterate what causes them the most burden...kids. The film dares to ponder how society manipulates adults into creating life that overshadows their own but gets cold feet trying to decipher it. Nicolas Cage unleashes grand psycho qualities that the director reins in for fear of buffoonery (?) That's a shame. 08-Feb-2020
The men are pulled right out of the gay bible and are shot up close to hide background restrictions. The cast was diverse and capable. Friends and lovers are infiltrated and defrocked by a vindictive serial fucker. It should have been fun but the soup was bland. They spent a sizable amount of time talking about big dick and no time exposing it. 04-Feb-2020
Beyond The Door (1974)
Trying to recreate the horror of The Exorcist on a scaled budget and via a disorderly presentation. The soul music was vibing but out of place. The shocks consisted of kids swearing, getting buckled and mama make outs. Juliet Mills succeeded wiping out sweet "Nanny and the Professor" memories and replacing them with disturbing ones. It had some effective scares that would have triggered had they been taken seriously. 29-Jan-2020
