Others, The (2001)
Children and the help, quarantined with a compulsive mother obsessed with the idea of being as great as God. It's made of Hitchcock walls, star quality is legend of old and the understated score unnerves. It's refined spookery. Nic is powerhouse mama alleviator and authoritarian, putting the kids sweetly to bed, one minute and wanting to chop their heads off, the next. The ending is ruined once you know it but the lesson still rings true. Nothing ever is as it seems. 27-Apr-2020
Love Witch, The (2016)
I did a double take when I realized the film wasn't set in the cheesy 60's gothic era. The women are dead ringers for the pristine beauty of that time and the daddies are porn succulence. The witch is a backwards feminist, desperate for love and domination, except her potions and sex stratagems only work precoital. Love turns men into quivering slobbering mush and she becomes vexed and resentful. The film is experimental, nonsensical and devoid of magic. 15-Mar-2020
Best Friends (1982)
Independent woman reaches high anxiety whilst reluctantly marrying her partner of five years. She believes marriage kills love and he's too venerable to start over. After a quickie marriage they embark on an in-law and family tour which reflect the weirdly mechanical influences the villagers brandish.
As much as Goldie and Burt appeared incompatible, their individual magnetism blind us into believing. Ron Silver delivers enthusiastic squishiness to the funniest bits.
It's a good companion to "Marriage Story."
It focused mainly on the topic of marriage which wears out.
The dialogue is written so we can understand them but not them, each other.
It refuses to answer its question.
It's breezy to watch. 29-Feb-2020
To All The Boys I Loved Before 2 (2020)
The protagonists ease us in, the rehash disappoints and I wish the support could do more than hold the leads' walls. I wanted to engage in Lara Jean's and Peter's commitment. The fragility that Lara Jean exposed would, in the real world, bring her hurt. Cheating cannot be the only reason couples break up. I will continue to watch but it needs to consummate (not talking about sex.) 29-Feb-2020
Fountain, The (2006)
In every corner hangs beautiful art and on every wall there is a story...and a story...and a story. I wanted to hang onto the modern fable that was going to rip into our hearts not the cloak and dagger fantasy that could have been its own film. Hugh Jackman was most guttural. The film's complexity overshadowed the simplicity of life. 14-Jan-2020
Beach Rats (2017)
The lengths gay boys will meander to discharge closeted sex and remain doped. A waste of pretty with nothing relevant to say. 29-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 up 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
Neon Demon, The (2016)
The art of devouring beauty. The film is stuck on carving striking visuals to move itself along, never defining its purpose or giving a well cast tenacity. We tend to fear beauty but it's our reaction that stirs it. 08-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
Boy's mental health shatters when he discovers that his girl hiccups for all the boys. Keir Gilchrist was prepared to inhabit what Tony Perkins stamped but the writers were too intent on keeping it romantic. 29-Nov-2019
Forbidden Planet (1956)
Space travel, pretty alphas, a lush otherworldly landscape and a progressive robot. A modern Eve (Anne Francis) coming into full sexual bloom to a cavalry of starved men is an intriguing aside. She meanders flirtatiously amongst them until the bull (Leslie Nielsen) that stokes her ire compels a passionate kiss. The effects contain enough creative thought and subtlety to survive its time, the direction goes beyond the page and the words resound with clarity.
(I'd gladly trade an Alexa for a Robby) 10-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
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
