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
Hypnotically rendered but the message doesn't stretch past religious privilege, perversity, addiction and violence. The emotions are vacant and no one has a built-in fight in them. 04-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
X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019)
McAvoy added a comedian's twirl at the tip of his Xavier accent and Lawrence appears like she's having facials with strangers. Little effort is evident by a cast of talented people. It saps and cheers for itself and it talks too much.
If the film had impressed the combustion that Fassbender and Chastain were percolating, the makers would had made a winner. 24-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
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
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
Beyond, The (1981)
Movie madness. It has you traverse through the bloody gates of hell as it promises. 30-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
McAvoy is body jacked but his interpretive personalities are TMI agony. The film utters comic book lore without smashing any of it. M. Knight was so obsessed with exercising a singular idea (superhero or not) that the film contains no vibrant standpoint. My foundation remained unrooted. 23-Oct-2019
Child's Play (2019)
Entertainment value is slaughtered by a stupid looking doll. 14-Oct-2019
It thought Three Stooges hilarity could save it. Helen Slater, her costume and her hair legitimizes it and Bochner doesn't hurt but everything else is bargain basement. I quit it because I didn't feel like falling asleep for a third time. Nobody cared. 12-Oct-2019
The horror is rendered by characterization and the abomination is in how viciously they get treated. It may be novel for a disaster movie but it damages our senses. 04-Oct-2019
Mary Poppins Returns (2018)
I had to quit. Just when I was getting accustomed to the hyper tension, they sang. 25-Sep-2019
When a director can't wrangle a decent performance from two accomplished actresses (Nyong'o and Moss,) he isn't done with his training. The movie makes no sense and it doesn't deserve to breathe on anything resembling art. 15-Sep-2019
