Invaders From Mars (1953)
To watch this film you have to tap into your child and understand the limitations of its time. It gets to business almost immediately, all is accepted at face value and good and evil hold to their lanes. It has a great start and there are enough influences to accommodate its art but the martians are silly. 10-Oct-2019
God's Own Country (2017)
Inheriting a life that your parents couldn't conclude. It's responsibility versus ideology. The farm is an educational revelation and the boys are rough like the terrain. Like in real life, it's all that and a cup of tenderness. 08-Oct-2019
What if Alexa/Siri manipulated you into killing? A laugh shower, a mind splitter and amusement park bunk. When cell phones battle at end, it's ridiculous but it's also an idea. 06-Oct-2019
He's Out There (2018)
Minor details manage to give the family attributes that the film ignores, Yvonne Strahovski steps up to bat and the Piniowsky darlings keep you uptight and entrenched. 06-Oct-2019
House of Flowers (2018)
Scouring the family axis with joy. 02-Oct-2019
Politician, The (2019-)
Our ladies kept entertaining with sparks of hilarity and gut wringing wit. Adding two surprise divas at tail end uplifted the premise further and Ben Platt graced us with beauty of voice and absolute dickhead abandonment. One of a kind. 30-Sep-2019
How chill must it have been to be swashbuckled by Lady Jessica. We should thank Lady Gwyneth too. She adds the scary to sweet. There is an adjustment period but the story is unique. I hope that it ends well. 27-Sep-2019
Green Book (2018)
I was predetermined to quit and I almost did at the beginning of Philadelphia but the film had an insistence on allocating an interracial message of unity. Ali rendered a painfully stoic sexual conundrum with too much high and no might. His fingers were the only part of his body trying to throb his character to life. He needed to fill the holes inherited by a lack of backstory. Mortensen breaks through the wrappings to inhabit but the tonal enthusiasm and scrunched up faces spawn 2D animation. It was funny, I drifted with the conversations, history was respected but I never once felt any of it happened. A slow seduction would have blown everything out of the park.
PS: If it makes everyone feel equal to be unpretty then we should stop saying "the magic of Hollywood." 29-Sep-2019
American Horror Story: 1984 (2019-)
Am I going to have to take viagra for the rest of the season? I never thought I'd need it, but ok. 26-Sep-2019
Simplicity is the best tailored suit for horror. The mythology is trembly and the franchise is freshening up.
Gus Kentworthy can feed a hungry gay senior trailer park with a strip and a flex. Emma Roberts is making all the right choices. Cody Fern is still holding back a layer. Matthew Morrison's penis is LOL. Leslie Grossman works better alone. Billie Lourd wants to steal it and Papa Murph is initiating another squirt test. 22-Sep-2019
Don't Knock Twice (2016)
Katee Sackhoff distributed guilt, anger and appeasement to a character that didn't need it and it's appreciated. The director clangs the scares and the mythology works but the whole doesn't satisfy like the details. 26-Sep-2019
Welcome back daddies! 25-Sep-2019
Unexpected thoughtfulness. 08-May-2019
I no longer have Buffy but I still have you. The last two episodes wrung every artistic sentiment my mind could withstand. Thank you. 06-Apr-2019
The company allowed the schmuck in me to celebrate Christmas. 02-Dec-2018
The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
I don't understand why turning from a kid to an adult makes you goofy, especially if the youngster displays no sign of it. The corn and rah almost dismisses its significance but its ease and audacity of violence clinches it. 22-Sep-2019
Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018)
The quest for survival does not always entail good judgment. Melissa immerses herself in a character that is designed to grate, frustrate and devour and supplies her with a humanity we can sympathize with. We ride happily along as she eviscerates the establishment that pulled the pedestal from under her because she wouldn't play the game. The support is top notch and the writing barks. 05-Sep-2019
Christopher Robin (2018)
Awakening childhood dreams with a smile, a little magic and a lot of heart. 03-Sep-2019
Misfits are created when the understanding of being born is confounding.
Each episode incorporated a distinct flavor that elevated character development and story arc. The whole is a buoyant and succulent melange.
The writing was sharply on edge, the directors' wings were boundless and the actors (especially Z) rose to every unforgiving task.
Z's parade at finale was unexpected, deserved, joyous and brilliant. The music speaks. 01-Sep-2019
The carnival episode was a modern Hitchcock delirious delight. Zen's etch of a drug addict cuts deep. 31-Aug-2019
Etching a recognizable world and stripping Zendaya of Disney cuteness. Feels like home. 28-Aug-2019
Boys, The (2019-)
Shue clenches frustration devoutly, Starr chomps evil gleefully and the end punctuated surprisingly. 26-Aug-2019
Graduating superheroes to the next level...consequences. 17-Aug-2019
