Dolemite Is My Name (2019)
Murphy uses the best of his abilities to bring to life a man whose fame was surpassed by greatness. I understood Dolemite's reference in history but it thrived only because it depicted. Murphy was ready to challenge himself but you can only claim that from superior talent. The laughs mostly fell on Snipes who appeared Blanche DuBoised, emoting every character he ever played and Da'Vine Jone Randolph who supplied great relief. 21-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
It's a high art profile of a Batman villain directed by Friday The Thirteenth. Margret brings her heroine to life by embodying the excited frustration of her realistic innocence for magic. Her character is underwritten and suffers from "who cares" but she was in it. Hopkins is our favorite crazy man whose practice and natural talent always have a way of invading its space. It is not a clean performance. He hits as many times as he bounces but what he lands is electric. A film, that in time, might grow into something. 11-Jan-2020
The movie where JLo snatched her talent back. The ladies are gloriously scintillating as the caper is fermented. 22-Dec-2019
Favourite, The (2018)
Filching the power of a doddering and enraged queen for self preservation. The lead trio combine with the word to exact the wit, scandal and one-upmanship that exists between women. Emma Stone's ambition cuts like a hurling knife, Rachel Weisz is all-business, running from said knife and the glorious and hilarious Olivia Colman covertly catches the knife to use against whom she pleases. Olivia opens like the wounds that appear during her illness. 16-Dec-2019
Winter Meeting (1948)
Hulkean war hero has a hard time relinquishing his power to serve God but Bette's there to help. There are reflective moments on mental health when the characters spill and expound. Bette gives the character her established perfection and James Davis is the right giant to pound the rigidity out of her but it defined without comprehensive deduction. 09-Dec-2019
Thing From Another World, The (1951)
Causing terror with good old fashioned Hollywood techniques. The film reboots beautifully because it's brilliant. They delivered a completely terrifying story and trusted the audience to use their imagination. 03-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
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
Butterfield 8 (1960)
Anatomy of a slut. The downfall of insatiable passion is perception. La Liz pounces, purrs and self-destructs. She is not allowed empowerment because she wont march. She wont march because she's empowered. The dialogue is sharp and reflective, the mothers are concerned and full of wisdom and the men can't think pass their hunger. The honest speak seemed closer to a resolution than the unsighted delusion of today. 17-Nov-2019
Starred Up (2013)
Fixing anger management whilst in prison. Jack O'Connell wholly conveys a ferocious and unchained delinquent with soft edging. Ben Mendelsohn is definitely the dad you don't want raising you in prison. Rupert Friend is the therapist that wants to reform them expressing very well through character evolvement that they can also reform him. Well acted, "candy-colored," well made. A take on the anger that builds in the underprivileged man. 15-Nov-2019
How To Be A Latin Lover (2017)
From hunk to chunk. Cliche comedy ease with a different culture. Derbez acquits comedy bravery, Hayek paints with passionate strokes, Taylor and Lavin jolt old ladies upright, Bell resuscitates with sunshine hypocrisy, Lowe institutes and Welch exalts. It's corny and safe, celebrating the importance of family while making us laugh. 11-Nov-2019
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
It brings enough childhood comic book thrills to life to score. Jake is best when he's romancing and fighting Peter Parker. The Spidey suit fashion show vibrated, Holland owns it and Zendaya purrs it. 09-Nov-2019
Last Time I Saw Paris, The (1954)
War, Victory, Love and Life. Taylor struts gorgeously, as does Johnson's Herculean mane. Reed drops sweet for acid, Eva asserts manhunter and Moore is fine cuisine. The dialogue snaps, sexual freedom is commonplace and money kills God's Plan. The story lingers then quickens but star lush endures. 09-Nov-2019
