Final Destination, The (2009)
Its thoroughness in mapping derails the anticipation of fright. 05-Nov-2018
Shut In (2016)
Naomi suffers eagerly and the scares start effectively. When the psychology stumbles, it takes the thrill with it. 31-Oct-2018
The haunt's mythology is terrifying but the present laid out flicks instead of punches. 04-Oct-2018
Urban Legend (1998)
Some clever kills is what satiates the legend but the script has trouble lining up the backstories that go with them. 25-Sep-2018
Lodgers, The (2017)
The curse never lives up to the resources the filmmakers were given access to. 24-Sep-2018
The boily stuff comes close to dampening it but the monster mash and George rescue it. 16-Sep-2018
Killing Ground (2016)
All Kool-Aid, no punch. 05-Sep-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
Love, Simon (2018)
It's a gulp full of hope where little offense is discharged and flecks of reality are spat.
Fairytales lift the imagination but authenticity will empower children. Its a disservice to send them out into the world with our fanciful wants. 27-Aug-2018
The heritage is beautifully painted, the inclusiveness is generous and the talent is high energy. It could have been a sweet corny gem. The music and dance resonate individually but the editing doesn't enforce the power to merge and impact the art. 19-Aug-2018
House of Deadly Secrets (2017)
The horror is mute and the only person willing to entertain us is Patty McCormack. She's hilarious. 19-Aug-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
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
Escape From L.A. (1996)
Russell's suit is glove-fit but the macho bluster keeps it stupid. 17-Jul-2018
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)
The story upheld the promise of its mythology but the dialogue forgot it. Except for the originals no one truly grasps or becomes a legend.
The last hour zips past to overcome its trepidation of fulfilling its spiritual demands. All that's required is pushing forth the magic. It gave us poignancy with two legends celebrating their careers then giving the fans an action comic stampede. 15-Jul-2018
