A Star Is Born (2018)
Unkempt and unglam remake that barely absorbs its time to set it apart. The music doesn't fulfill a star's talent, the gays are accessorized, and though there is regard between the leads, there is no heat. Cooper steals Kristofferson's voice but incorporates no swag; Gaga is just practicing. It's a cold and reductive remake. 03-Sep-2019
Morgan, The Pirate (1960)
Spanish history, slave trade, pirates, wenches and ship wars. Plenty of action and debauchery for short attention spans and Steve Reeves exposes body beautiful to keep the eyes fixed. 20-Apr-2019
Feminine Touch, The (1941)
Sex war rom com served by master wits (Don Ameche, Rosalind Russell, Van Heflin and Kay Francis.) Ameche and Rosalind defy lack of chemistry but Heflin and Francis uplift the back end. The logic stipulates that men classify a woman's worth by the amount of selected howlers sniffing at her door. All the woman wants is for her man to grow a pair and punch the howlers sniffing at her door. 06-Feb-2019
Period of Adjustment (1962)
The utters of Fonda and Hutton chanted high. Tony Franciosa kept the octaves low and his charisma forward. John McGiver sets and Mabel Albertson resists becoming the in-law stereotype. They glorified it. Lois Nettleton steals it because she could.
Marriage is deemed a terror, everyone screams their heads off until a surprise gift changes it. It has a loud message but you can still hear it.
Unfortunately, George Roy Hill's absurdity didn't allow Tennessee to be tragic. It's what the writer did best. 03-Jan-2019
All Eyes On Me (2017)
I don't understand the sanctification. Only reality befits his truth. He was a musician with a thug problem. 29-Nov-2018
Fist Fight (2017)
Instead of expounding on the challenges of education they blast the ridiculousness of adult immaturity. The overload of stereotypes swats the funny. 23-Nov-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
The boyly stuff comes close to dampening it but the monster mash and George rescue it. 16-Sep-2018
The macho pose may seem off date but who cares when the master has proliferated a grand illusion and Zoe Saldana is gut wrenched. 15-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
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
Escape From L.A. (1996)
Russell's suit is glove-fit but the macho bluster keeps it stupid. 17-Jul-2018
Apollo 13 (1995)
Ron Howard reveres and engages us in science. Tom Hanks heads the daddy brave brigade and Kathleen Quinlan commands the tormented family ensemble. 08-Jul-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
