Platform, The (2020)
It makes sense in the confines of the story but it's pretty preposterous without a big world picture. It's vile, claustrophobic and exhausting. 30-Mar-2020
Lobster, The (2015)
Couples rule in a post cruel world. If you don't find a mate they turn you into an animal. Its royal art of weirdness with little justification and a vivid imagination. Colin inherits a comedian's edge, puncturing the establishment in a catatonic state and making us laugh and cheer. Rachel Weisz keeps the heart of the film beating and Yorgos is crazy. 29-Mar-2020
Green Room (2015)
Band of vagabonds get punished by nazis for playing crappy rock or because they witnessed a crime. Sir Patrick Stewart was hired to class up the film and the "n" word. Anton Yelchin's heroism is a John Connor (Terminator) facsimile with substandard realization. The film lost me as soon as the punk picks up his phone to call the police for a kill that wasn't directed at him. What is the purpose of nazis if there is no racial conflict? (They don't need the props.) They were dim and disoriented and anything but scary. It stalls, it repeats, it celebrates and I believed very little of it. 28-Mar-2020
Autopsy Of Jane Doe, The (2016)
The autopsy is comprehensive, the actors are aligned and the corpse is an eerily beautiful masterpiece. The mumbo jumbo is handled scientifically which excludes genius insanity being the harbinger of truth and sets some practical scares for us. 27-Mar-2020
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954)
Men were men, maintaining the environment and women were the foundation of the home. Women complain and acquiesce; men do and expect. It was a time for falling immensely in love at first sight.. hearing about her... smelling her... he's fuckin' big. The cavemen are fuckable, idiotic and tamable. Except for the main and a purring pussycat the brides are an indistinguishable group. They desired less but they connived, demanded and bended it to their advantage like a future President. It's joyous to a fault especially when kidnapping little girls. The music no longer vibrates like it did but the hoofing was athletic muscularity. 20-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
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
Lion King, The (2019)
Its paced like a cartoon which kills the organic emotional impact because it seems rushed.
The score swelled and stomped on all the sentiments the story was setting. It's hard to feel something when it's already been decided for you.
The baby voices were stronger than their mature counterparts.
The soundtrack sparkled with new modulations.
It's a retread with no originality injected... wrapped in a gorgeous package. 29-Feb-2020
Night Before, The (1988)
Typical boy loses prom date which allows us to spend the night with him... retracing his steps. The details include rape, white slavery and violence. It really doesn't matter though... you watch because Keanu Reeves made a most huggable teen and Lori Loughlin struck with killer looks and scary everything else. 24-Feb-2020
Recall, The (2017)
Wesley Snipes' character makes no sense and serves little purpose except to initiate coincidental saves. The aliens are underwhelming compared to its rip counterparts. The only injection of interest occurs at end where the film should have started. 22-Feb-2020
Airport '77 (1977)
What it reserves in thrills it expounds in detail and raw film work. The pros lathered the soap like it was Shakespeare, it was diverse and actors were allowed to sweat. A movie that sits better out of its time. 21-Feb-2020
Train To Busan (2016)
Zombie apocalypse gets an epic disaster movie treatment. I thought there was nothing left to do with a zombie but I was thrillingly surprised. The zombies are quick, staggering and evolved. Yeong Sang-ho returns as many things as he borrowed, lending it a huge amount of humanity and eagerly expanding the perception of claustrophobic spaces. Daddy mass clobbered, daddy major stepped up and daughter darling broke our hearts. 18-Feb-2020
Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019)
A blanched all-star siphon it's heart but the smoked monsters have art comic book flair. Blur the actors and fine-tune the monsters. 13-Feb-2020
Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant frightening insanity. The film weeps artistry and reflects on the development of poor mental health and the society that impedes its betterment. The swamp of darkness does not allow our villain joy. I believe that had he had a dance partner (Batman), the movie would have found some. 02-Feb-2020
Saturn 5 (1980)
It literally reads, even in space, the Goldigger gets what she wants. The age difference is astronomical which sends charisma out the window. It probably would have played better with a spouse of equal experience. Farrah hadn't received her acting wings yet but she comes to life when she's experiencing pain (screaming, crying and panicking.) The robot is unfinished and ridiculous, the sets are TV comparable and the idea is no longer beneficial. 24-Jan-2020
