Terror Is A Man (1959)
The lesson always seems to insinuate that when man interferes with the environment, even if it it is to save us, it only exacerbates the situation. The creeps activate, the atmosphere encompasses it and the main alphas (male & female) are surreal. 06-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
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
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
Terminal Man (1974)
Adding a computer to a killer's brain was supposed to rehabilitate him. It was progressive. It had a prominent female doctor and a black magician's assistant.
Joan Hackett was an accomplished Sarah Paulson without the amount of accolades.
George Segal was dumbfounding, cringingly stamping the mediocrity evident in the poor treatment of a great story. 22-Nov-2019
A Summer Place (1959)
Avoiding becoming like our parents by following in their footsteps.
Mother misinformed (Constance Ford) desexualizes and humiliates her daughter because she's afraid of acquiescing to her grunt husband.
The fuckable grunt (Richard Egan) is frustrated but soft wanting to understand the new world while being forced to follow the old.
Graceful mom (Dorothy McGuire) is all want in her eyes of a time passed that has returned.
Drunk daddy (Arthur Kennedy) shovels the truth and blows it in their faces.
Troy Donahue is a dreamy Groot with a slight bigger vocabulary. Beauty is an expression onto itself.
Sandra Dee was the girl next door living in a cloud.
The film was panned but successful. It spoke frankly about sex, it epitomized its time and predestined ours, for each question raised there was a consequence, for every character, a reason. It was a time to question life... the old and the new.
(It deserves restoration.) 13-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
You Better Watch Out/Christmas Evil (1980)
Insanity celebrates Christmas. The film attempts to psychoanalyze our hero but the construction is not mentally capable. 07-Nov-2019
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
It delineates the first Santa, full of godlike vengeance and destruction. The film parodies like a summer blockbuster with striking imagery and a cheerleading score. It chugs along, never delivering the titular monster and rabidly tugging at our hearts. 05-Nov-2019
Last House On The Left, The (1972)
It's astounding that the film hammers the same political perplexities that we still argue today. Even though Craven stages with high buffoonery and jump cuts, the idea of the horror writhes from the ditch. 26-Oct-2019
Cannibal Women In The Avocado Jungle of Death (1989)
The politic of the feminist necessitates eating men. Shannon could (act,) Bill squeaked and Adrienne shouldn't have. 12-Oct-2019
Invaders From Mars (1953)
To watch this film you have to tap into your child and understand the limitations of its time. It gets to business almost immediately, all is accepted at face value and good and evil hold to their lanes. It has a great start and there are enough influences to accommodate its art but the martians are silly. 10-Oct-2019
What if Alexa/Siri manipulated you into killing? A laugh shower, a mind splitter and amusement park bunk. When cell phones battle at end, it's ridiculous but it's also an idea. 06-Oct-2019
It's a post apocalyptic climate change resolution that speaks in a tongue that isn't closed captioned. 29-Sep-2019
My Little Eye (2002)
It's all vegan undernourishment until the end where the meat and potatoes are served. 15-Sep-2019
