Little Women (2019)
I sat down prepared to hate. New feminism interjected to classic "girl power." That was going to be offensive to me. An hour in, I asked myself, are they still playing music underneath the act and then a few minutes later I gave up and enjoyment crept in. When Saoirse Ronan's perfection subsides and we see a deeper core of the character, I rejoiced and asked discrepancies.
Emma Watson is asked to bank on likability instead of relying on bits of herself that can make a character great. Stop hiding and come forth. Be whatever you are. It will be great.
Timothee Chalamet almost made me believe in romance. Florence Pugh pushed the thought further.
Laura Dern makes it as easy as inhaling a line of coke in the 80s. Good for her.
A woman that frees herself has broader opportunities than anyone.
Greta Gerwig's force is in it. The errors that I caught will be her art. The special place she created was a safe place to visit. That is not an easy world to create. 24-Jul-2020
Toy Story 4 (2019)
The toys still wonder, crack smiles and grant blessings of a childhood institution from a very long time ago. The adventures became more human, the suffering became internalized, everybody grew up and moved on. Bittersweet. 12-Jun-2020
Extracting a drug lord's boy from the violent clutches of a challenger. Hemsworth is action God with minimal words and a gumption for despair. The writers downplay bravado and sap, injecting touches of humanity and observation to their characters. Director Sam Hargrave meticulously choreographs masterful action, cultural deficiency and human interaction. I was as enervated by the colossal statements as the small. The testosterone shot the action genre sorely needed. 30-Apr-2020
This is the conclusion to all the movie pandemics. The easy saves were cliche but the tough stuff was visionary. The sweety darling in danger may be repetitive, but she's so cute. The error asides don't matter if the director envisions a whole. The cure for the virus and the safety of the world is to kill all of the infected. Disaster movie, indeed. 17-Apr-2020
Farewell, The (2019)
Family saying goodbye to a most adorable nana whose unaware she's dying. It is heritage that deigns not telling the patient they are terminal for fear it would exacerbate the symptoms. The Americanized part of the family are predisposed to tell because we have a need to finalize life. The elders would prefer to respect her life by allowing her to enjoy what's left. Awkwafina tempers the doubt, the confusion and the love as the film quietly distills it. 13-Mar-2020
I Kill Giants (2017)
She kills giants and she's not afraid of them but then proceeds to quiver and weep at the thought. Having little girls spew superhero corn is cringey and embarrassingly hilarious. The girl on girl was tender but the titular was a smoky abstract. I was a bit confused by the giants. Why kill something that hands such good life advice upon victory or is that the point? Are they fortune cookies? 09-Mar-2020
It doesn't punctuate the title but the surroundings are trapped shut, baby bubble is dramatically shoved, pulled and pie faced into reality and the effects remind you without shaking you. It's a film that passes but makes us feel like we stumbled upon a midseason finale cliffhanger. 05-Mar-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
I admire that it sheds light on the trials of a black muslim and the extra life limitations its religion bestows.
The crime was evolving into a story black Americans could relate to from a culture worth defining but ran out of gas.
Suspense is pretty tight.
The magic pushes it forward as much as it pushes it under.
Well done, I was in it and it got its point across...
but at end...
...it was hard to feel anything.
Respect. Keep cranking them. 27-Feb-2020
Mother Nature has decided that women can no longer contribute to the evolution of mankind. It's an isolated island inhabited by creepy mamas and sad baby boys. Using sound effects in place of music generates desperate tension... the audacity to inflict torture on little boys is persistent... the idea of having children scares me but the idea of torturous birth is brutal... the setting is a boy's worst nightmare come true. The director keeps it focused, wide and captivating whilst gifting us an ender's reprieve. Cheers. 26-Feb-2020
To All The Boys I Loved Before (2018)
Teen romcom sweetness. 23-Feb-2020
Airport '77 (1977)
What it reserves in thrills it expounds in detail and raw film work. The pros lathered the soap like it was Shakespeare, it was diverse and actors were allowed to sweat. A movie that sits better out of its time. 21-Feb-2020
Son, The (2019)
A husband thinks his wife's environmental overprotectiveness towards their son is the reason she's keeping the boy from him. Everyone is intense, suspicious and naturally creepy. You clench to the finish line waiting in exasperation to find out who's what. It satisfies and saddles a surprisingly happy ending that complements the horror. 17-Feb-2020
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
In This Corner Of The World (2016)
Ambitious and lovingly detailed account of a war torn life. The audacity of surviving when so much has perished. 28-Dec-2019
