Jurasaic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)
Pratt is still Stepford, no one but Spielberg has actually maintained the magic of dinosaurs and we should never be so illogical that we choose to compromise earth because its cool. 26-Dec-2018
Cuaron's acute respect for the latino community grants the actors a flow of naturalness. He stills the camera and holds us down but the punches are seldom. His scrupulousness doesn't allow the story to move forward, to be appreciated or ingested. Black and white is an art trick that binds it to a timeless blur. 20-Dec-2018
Star Trek III: In Search of Spock (1984)
Generous in sci-fi spirituality but short in supplying the visionary actions that deflects from the nonsense. 12-Nov-2018
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
