Terror Is A Man (1959)
The lesson always seems to insinuate that when man interferes with the environment, even if it it is to save us, it only exacerbates the situation. The creeps activate, the atmosphere encompasses it and the main alphas (male & female) are surreal. 06-Dec-2019
Someone breaks the peace treaty America made with the aliens by attacking them. The aliens are everything history imagined, the scares are chilling and the relationship held interest. Too bad the characters had to talk. 01-Dec-2019
House Arrest (2019)
Daddy mass resigns from societal distress by home imprisonment. It's a phenomenon worth exploring. The cast is pleasing and energetic, the sets are envy inducing but the comedy sways towards buffoonery. Daddy, Rambo and a cell phone trick clinch it. 01-Dec-2019
Irishman, The (2019)
The film punched a hole in the walls I had built being a mobster's kid which I only recently realized. It deftly displayed the inner workings of what my father's life was as opposed to how I experienced it.
The more the legends stripped to the third layer the more astonishing the outcome. Pacino roared, DeNiro resolved, Pesci divested, Romano rattled, Maniscalco (pants daddy) plundered and Jim Norton was uncanny. The women were prescribed little voice yet supplied haunting images.
Scorcese realized the gangster of today and allowed him to pay for his regrets. 28-Nov-2019
Old feeble men playing dress up. The intensity of the work is evident as is the three hour sacrifice to honor the best of it but most of it is unwarranted. The pros are welcome faces and the force is evident. I'm halfway in and I want to record my experience in parts. The history is concentrated and the genre is foolproof. While I've had highs with many of these men, it feels like they never moved forward or learned from their mistakes. Where's the now gangster? Scorcese masters the downfall of every criminal hero he builds yet the audience always ends up glorifying him. 27-Nov-2019
Starred Up (2013)
Fixing anger management whilst in prison. Jack O'Connell wholly conveys a ferocious and unchained delinquent with soft edging. Ben Mendelsohn is definitely the dad you don't want raising you in prison. Rupert Friend is the therapist that wants to reform them expressing very well through character evolvement that they can also reform him. Well acted, "candy-colored," well made. A take on the anger that builds in the underprivileged man. 15-Nov-2019
How To Be A Latin Lover (2017)
From hunk to chunk. Cliche comedy ease with a different culture. Derbez acquits comedy bravery, Hayek paints with passionate strokes, Taylor and Lavin jolt old ladies upright, Bell resuscitates with sunshine hypocrisy, Lowe institutes and Welch exalts. It's corny and safe, celebrating the importance of family while making us laugh. 11-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
Beyond, The (1981)
Movie madness. It has you traverse through the bloody gates of hell as it promises. 30-Oct-2019
Happy Death Day 2U (2019)
It veers and continues, adds Big Bang to theorize whilst amping prior situations to add a new mystery. They rip a few pages from Halloween 2 and all the audacity from Back to the Future Part II. 27-Oct-2019
Last House On The Left, The (1972)
It's astounding that the film hammers the same political perplexities that we still argue today. Even though Craven stages with high buffoonery and jump cuts, the idea of the horror writhes from the ditch. 26-Oct-2019
El Angel (2018)
The angel is a pretty boy thug serial menace. The treatment is enamored of its subject, diluting his gay tendencies and celebrating every crime as a cute inspired revolution. Lorenzo Ferro keeps the character charged and the film pulsing but the consequences for heinous are overlooked. I could smell the 70s. 24-Oct-2019
Happy Death Day (2017)
It serves exactly what was on the menu: a teen romcom with knives. 24-Oct-2019
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
