Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)
The three main try their utmost to realize but the production can't best the original's mediocre entanglements. Sigh. Not even a titdance from Dwayne. 04-Sep-2018
Lady Bird (2017)
Laurie Metcalf is ripe to play Carrie White's mother but the film doesn't allow its characters plenitude. The personalities change so abruptly that the film ends up not having a point of view. 19-Aug-2018
Call Me By Your Name (2017)
Its insulting in its timing and the delusion that a teenager's "me too" is a right of passage. The disparity in size (Hammer's giant) and childlike looks (Timothee Chalamet) adds unseemliness to its presentation. Hammer distributes much awkwardness and little desire, maybe because he realized the discomfort of its subject.
Man/boy love is tricky if you don't account for its repercussions. It doesn't represent the gay community but it indicates that straits will stick it to anything and that uniting in sex will not absolve our confusion.
I'll call you what my first lover/daddy/asshole called himself..."bugarron." 07-Aug-2018
Parents of the year contend with a rude awakening. Just when Nicole's volcano of talent erupts the movie blindsides us with an inconclusive fate. 24-Jul-2018
Love Liza (2002)
The movie never lets up its depressive state. Hoffman digs so deep and personal that its hard to withstand the character he ascribes. He has a mental illness beyond depression and his unwillingness to move forward after tragedy hints that what he mourns was not deserved. Anything eventually would have rendered him dependent and his wife knew that. 20-Jul-2018
The mother/son dynamic felt natural to the actors and its where I wanted to linger. As soon as the sci-fi conspiracies are exasperatingly unwrapped all sense is lost and Rapace's performance recedes. 18-Jul-2018
It hangs by a good thought that the planet could be saved if we eliminate mankind but the presentation lacks. 28-Jun-2018
Black Panther (2018)
Gods and goddesses blessed with magical resources and riches hide under a celestial bubble fighting for their survival but sharing very little of it with the world and the neighbors they seem to emulate.
The accents waver, the muscle is weak and the girls fare better but not by much. The beauty of color keeps it alive but the 70's mod and religious adherence bring it outmoded corniness.
I celebrate its political success as I await to see an ethnic hero that embodies the film world with the same grace as its counter does. We have to start somewhere. 24-Jun-2018
It's an inclusive jock party whose words and direction give no clue as to why they should flex a muscle. 01-Jun-2018
Corpse Bride (2005)
Clever art does not compensate for a poor story and an uninteresting title character. 20-May-2018
Hardbodies 2 (1986)
It forgets what a hardbody is and the penance for the exploitation of beauty is extreme nonsense. 11-May-2018
Friend Request (2016)
Alicia Debnam-Carey is ready and Connor Paolo presents a roaring pocket but relying on the supernatural disconnects us from the suspense that reality was holding. 11-May-2018
Justice League (2017)
It will continue to embarrass for as long as production is allowed to churn arid cornpop. They can't orchestrate a thrilling action sequence, the costumes don't befit a hero and it certainly doesn't flatter the artists (everyone clunks around) and the villain seems extracted from an outdated RPG. Cavill wakes up to serve us what's left of the Superman character and Amy Adams and Diane Lane are the only Amazons. Most of the artists left their joy elsewhere.
It needs to look at its animation for inspiration. 14-May-2018
King Kong (1976)
Jessica overcame it, Jeff squishes what he can from unkempt, the effects now match the script (awful) and Kong is perverted. It's beautiful score deserves a better movie. 18-Apr-2018
Psycho II (1983)
Everything has been dialed up a notch...the performances, the dedication, the modernization. Unfortunately all the movie needed was a tip, an expansion and a scare. Hitchcock's successor was necessary to rein that in. 08-Apr-2018
