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
October Faction (2020-)
"The Americans" in the Buffyverse with its own ideas.
Twins united is a powerful concoction. He's gay with no tolerance for sweetness and of suppressed privilege. She questions why her life doesn't fulfill her essence. They both do everything to upset their parents. Their awakening untangles excitedly.
Family history keeps the mythology pressing on.
Daddy has a gun, grandma has a gun, they all have a gun but no one grips it like mama.
The show handles its business like a bullet - straight through - no bullshit - not for squeaky screamers.
"Big Bad" seems to be representing.
There are a variety of monsters, entanglements and enlightenments for an open world of writing fun stuff. 29-Jan-2020
Witcher, The (2019-)
Daddy is something else but it was the ladies that kept me glued. 18-Jan-2020
Of course, I'm disquieted by the froggish whisper of the Witcher but he delivers comitted action moves and steady alpha charisma. Interspersed characterization maintains the show's freshness. (Is it part of its mythology that all pretty twinks get killed?) 15-Jan-2020
It's a high art profile of a Batman villain directed by Friday The Thirteenth. Margret brings her heroine to life by embodying the excited frustration of her realistic innocence for magic. Her character is underwritten and suffers from "who cares" but she was in it. Hopkins is our favorite crazy man whose practice and natural talent always have a way of invading its space. It is not a clean performance. He hits as many times as he bounces but what he lands is electric. A film, that in time, might grow into something. 11-Jan-2020
We watch for the shiny new tech (even if it appears unfinished.) 09-Jan-2020
Hellish Arthurian legend. It couldn't hit the masses because it keeps its characters and premise grotesque and blood-soaked. David Harbour conveys the title monster but his unappealing design lends him no superhero charisma. Cult status may grant its futility and relentlessness, crap fun. 18-Dec-2019
The catastrophe of Lost has been redeemed.
Blue is a gorgeous color.
Only Jeremy Irons could snugly fit that suit or that character.
Tim Blake Nelson is trailer park satisfaction.
The greatest thing James Wolk did was strip. His accent almost cut me, it was so sharp.
Lady Trieu was grunge girl effervescence.
It completed, catapulted, respected and reinvented. Brilliant!
I'm excited and afraid. 09-Dec-2019
Acquiring empathy for a dad you hate by reliving his memories was invigorating. (Don't fuck it up!) 03-Dec-2019
Jean Smart and Regina King are glorious. Jeremy Irons is a fantastic beast. The creators name drop comic book fantasy without delivering it. Junk is created for the masses but art heightens its subject. Uncertainty makes the audience walk out. 09-Nov-2019
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
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
Raising Dion (2019-)
I delighted in Jason Ritter finally putting those asshole tics to use but the upgrade was for mama. No superhero is flying around her house until she says so! 22-Nov-2019
When mama discusses the mental incarceration of racism to a son that's becoming physically stronger, my negative comments became obliterated. The writers ventured to give us a modern mama willing to be sensitively honest with her child and equip him for life's challenges. Respect. 20-Oct-2019
A subject worth exploring in a culture historically evaded. It moves better when it tightens the reins but it's self awareness, interspersed soundtrack along with sprinkles of bleeding sap, drain it. 18-Oct-2019
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
It brings enough childhood comic book thrills to life to score. Jake is best when he's romancing and fighting Peter Parker. The Spidey suit fashion show vibrated, Holland owns it and Zendaya purrs it. 09-Nov-2019
Little Mermaid Live, The (2019)
The detail I most remember from "The Little Mermaid," was how her hair moved. If you can't establish an artistic craft to convey that, the art is lost. She flew when she needed to swim.
My treasure list:
I haven't seen so much visible invisible wire since "I Love Lucy." Decorating them might have helped
The octaves were lower than the crowd cheer. Amplification was a problem
A hologram of the improbable fish might have sufficed instead of plastic muppets
Graham Philips proved a singing alpha as Auli'i Cravalho expressed hard work
John Stamos' cook was destined to fail even if he had done it in a thong
Shaggy was feeling the beat but something spooked him and he started whispering
You shouldn't stumble. Even a shark shows grace underwater
Having the cartoon enact emotions whilst the live mostly sang is lazy
The deed was cast. The commercial for a beloved classic was born because they knew that after this, we'd flee to the original material. Magic! 08-Nov-2019
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
It delineates the first Santa, full of godlike vengeance and destruction. The film parodies like a summer blockbuster with striking imagery and a cheerleading score. It chugs along, never delivering the titular monster and rabidly tugging at our hearts. 05-Nov-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
All the boys needed testosterone shots on vocals. Guy Ritchie has the balls to make a dream come true but has no audacity to eject it with soul. Smith is an imposing genie that computes the gay with little gumption. Mr. Massoud (Aladdin) squishes triumphantly but with too much modern awareness. Naomi Scott (Jasmine) is the only with a voice but she is too liberated in her femininity to convey the struggles of Jasmine's past. Marwin Kenzari squishes delightfully as a person but lends no voice or stature to Jafar. Ritchie brings as many things to life as he killed. 22-Oct-2019
