Downton Abbey (2019)
Everything was comfortable, a lot of it seemed sad, the cast set their acting dials high and that was a pittance. They also found a way to rebound from it. It was probably myself adjusting to it but they pulled off honoring their TV charisma. A charming fragrance that doesn't linger. 25-Jan-2020
Saturn 5 (1980)
It literally reads, even in space, the Goldigger gets what she wants. The age difference is astronomical which sends charisma out the window. It probably would have played better with a spouse of equal experience. Farrah hadn't received her acting wings yet but she comes to life when she's experiencing pain (screaming, crying and panicking.) The robot is unfinished and ridiculous, the sets are TV comparable and the idea is no longer beneficial. 24-Jan-2020
Meet Wally Sparks (1997)
Illogical silliness for a ferocious one liner. The supporting personalities are TV staples flexing their muscles to bozo comedy. Poor things. 19-Jan-2020
Schwarzenegger's boyish macho charm and Devito's adorable uncontrollable muppet sustain the funny and sweet but the film's improbability and predictability does not age well. 13-Jan-2020
We watch for the shiny new tech (even if it appears unfinished.) 09-Jan-2020
Invaders From Mars (1986)
Tobe and company add too much silliness to the story, the aliens look like ugly toys you win for free and the only alien needed was underutilized (Louise Fletcher.) She knows scary. 31-Dec-2019
Daughters Of Darkness (1971)
Newlyweds get their honeymoon interrupted by voracious lesbians. It's mystery stays locked until the end, probably so we don't question how illogical it is. The protagonists keep it sexually charged and violently demeaning. 18-Dec-2019
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
Ready Or Not (2019)
Why in-laws don't have an official holiday celebration. It quick starts with ease and foreboding with Samara Weaving transitioning from blushing bride to Harley Quinn but it fails to stay on track and the payback doesn't live up to its promise. If the groom had been unaware and a convincing price tag applied to the hunt it would have curtailed the buffoonery. 15-Dec-2019
Christmas Survival (2018)
I could only survive 15 minutes. 08-Dec-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
Kissing Booth, The (2018)
Violent dream pole invigorates virgin queen to the consternation of his brother and her bestie. It's an odd concoction of disbelief. A bad boy gets rehabilitated by purity, something the girl loses as soon as he smells her. The parents are of the Charlie Brown variety, they're there but you cant really understand them and they really can't be bothered. The bestie should have been gay because watching porn together and never kissing, is weird. There are two gays that pop-up but all they do is desire, deny and dance. I'm torn. We should have family fare that looks and tastes like bubblegum (with sugar) but I think the teens could use a little cement (for their foundation.) The ending played it safe for everyone but I applaud it because it was the only choice for the genre. 03-Dec-2019
Someone breaks the peace treaty America made with the aliens by attacking them. The aliens are everything history imagined, the scares are chilling and the relationship held interest. Too bad the characters had to talk. 01-Dec-2019
House Arrest (2019)
Daddy mass resigns from societal distress by home imprisonment. It's a phenomenon worth exploring. The cast is pleasing and energetic, the sets are envy inducing but the comedy sways towards buffoonery. Daddy, Rambo and a cell phone trick clinch it. 01-Dec-2019
Irishman, The (2019)
The film punched a hole in the walls I had built being a mobster's kid which I only recently realized. It deftly displayed the inner workings of what my father's life was as opposed to how I experienced it.
The more the legends stripped to the third layer the more astonishing the outcome. Pacino roared, DeNiro resolved, Pesci divested, Romano rattled, Maniscalco (pants daddy) plundered and Jim Norton was uncanny. The women were prescribed little voice yet supplied haunting images.
Scorcese realized the gangster of today and allowed him to pay for his regrets. 28-Nov-2019
Old feeble men playing dress up. The intensity of the work is evident as is the three hour sacrifice to honor the best of it but most of it is unwarranted. The pros are welcome faces and the force is evident. I'm halfway in and I want to record my experience in parts. The history is concentrated and the genre is foolproof. While I've had highs with many of these men, it feels like they never moved forward or learned from their mistakes. Where's the now gangster? Scorcese masters the downfall of every criminal hero he builds yet the audience always ends up glorifying him. 27-Nov-2019
