Madre (Mother) (2016)
An expectant mother with a virulent special needs child, becomes overwhelmed until she meets and hires a kindly filipino grandmother who claims to have cured her own. The treatment consists of communicating with him in her native tongue, pampering him like a favorite child and emotionally distancing him from his natural mother. The boy recuperates, learns to speak filipino and clamps himself onto the mother (nanny) he desperately needs. Mother has her discomforts, daddy is relieved and the household finds much needed bliss. Mother marches along, suspending her doubts and chalking the old woman's takeover as relief. As soon as madre decides to use an app translator to discover what the nanny is communicating to her son, the mama wars begin. Daddy is gaslighting, mama is hallucinating and racial political correctness is straining. The film makes a point that the intent to make everyone legitimate renders safety mute even whey they act stereotypically. It's a nail-biter I don't recommend to expectant mothers... unless they want to drop early. 02-Apr-2020
Autopsy Of Jane Doe, The (2016)
The autopsy is comprehensive, the actors are aligned and the corpse is an eerily beautiful masterpiece. The mumbo jumbo is handled scientifically which excludes genius insanity being the harbinger of truth and sets some practical scares for us. 27-Mar-2020
The society is comprised of envy, maintenance, labor, guts and unification. Images remain in your head, long after you've dismissed them. The story is absolutely unique, the actors are natural and the suffering for/from abundance touches every base. Trimming would have propelled a much stronger impact but I couldn't stop watching every minute of its extensive length. 23-Mar-2020
Killing Of A Sacred Dear, The (2017)
Doctor feels responsible for causing the death of a teenage boys' father. He befriends him and his mother and integrates him into his own. The boy is a psychotic Jesus whose God has been bested by a doctor playing at God. Colin Farrell adds beautiful whisper to his lilt, calming us, confusing us and surprising us. Barry Keoghan is a vengeful prince ravaging the establishment and scary as fuck. Alicia Silverstone sucks good hands. Raffey Cassidy and Sunny Sulgic supply the perfect endorsement for burdening yourself with care one minute and smacks, the other. Nic holds it tight for the first hour, being logical and abiding but by the last hour she's tongue lashing and bitch slapping her character to heaven. Yorgos Lanthimos kept it artistic, chillingly precise, musically gripped and the giant balls to give us an OMG ending. 18-Mar-2020
Piece of shit about a Charlie's angel being possessed by a spiteful demon. The spiteful demon is a woman that accepts no bullshit from a man and punishes him for it. As she hurts no one but, I see no reason to destroy her. She's today's woman. When Bobbie Bresee's Playboy playmate regresses to her childhood trauma like Sally Field in "Sybil," it was brilliant hilarity. LaWanda Page was hilarious. A lot of the film is hilarious and ridiculous and preposterous. It's a piece of shit that entertains.
A cleanup might do it good. 13-Mar-2020
Knives Out (2019)
Whodunnits don't need explanation. A fresh appeal for a chess match. Everything with Plummer spun magnificently but Craig jacked Spacey's southern flourish with little success. The support were ready but remained pawns in a game. They didn't flesh out. The unraveling was dry and predictable but the mystery qualified. 08-Mar-2020
Daddy teach gets a woody when student overachiever dominates his classroom and his life with his reach for intellectual excellence. Dylan Sprouse objectifies exemption, corruption and the high holiness of shit. It's unfortunate that his psychology is not well drawn. Daddy does not squish sufficiently to lend credence to certain plot points but Dylan's penance almost makes up for that. 03-Mar-2020
Girl On The Third Floor, The (2019)
Haunted shenanigans. Cocky daddy tats gets slimed as the whorehouse he's renovating turns on him. The film's second half reveals how to be worthy of it. 02-Mar-2020
Night Before, The (1988)
Typical boy loses prom date which allows us to spend the night with him... retracing his steps. The details include rape, white slavery and violence. It really doesn't matter though... you watch because Keanu Reeves made a most huggable teen and Lori Loughlin struck with killer looks and scary everything else. 24-Feb-2020
Love Island (UK) (2015-)
Men have invented a new derogatory language to upset women. What now? We can't ban every word... or can we? Nobody mentioned french toast, its the best (any foreigner with sweet tasting d...) 22-Feb-2020
Contestants get paid to be inappropriate to strangers. 16-Feb-2020
I misinterpreted its existence. We are judging cave dwellers hooking up in a modern habitat. Skinny jeans, man pillows, wrangling, snogging, heart rips, musical accents and an errattic ear...that's entertainment. It's a braincation. 16-Feb-2020
Boring in any language. 25-Aug-2019
It Comes At Night (2017)
It's tight, mysterious, exasperating, horrifying and complete. People who live in bubbles should never venture out. 20-Feb-2020
Train To Busan (2016)
Zombie apocalypse gets an epic disaster movie treatment. I thought there was nothing left to do with a zombie but I was thrillingly surprised. The zombies are quick, staggering and evolved. Yeong Sang-ho returns as many things as he borrowed, lending it a huge amount of humanity and eagerly expanding the perception of claustrophobic spaces. Daddy mass clobbered, daddy major stepped up and daughter darling broke our hearts. 18-Feb-2020
Stranger, The (2020)
The wows were cross-stitched to perfection. 05-Feb-2020
I'm only two episodes in but I think it's about a future where snitching trends...like, "save the world" kind of..."trendy." I'm intrigued. 02-Feb-2020
Good Place, The (2016-)
Finale. I liked the idea that we choose when to end our lives. Every character was sentimentally dismissed and Danson squished the mightiest. 04-Feb-2020
When you free a series from the restraints of discipline and thought, it becomes everything and nothing. The romance is ill matched plus unfeeling and the hottie/asian is suffering from acute stupidity. 27-Jan-2019
It moved forwards predictably, simplifying life without ever defining it. 30-Sep-2018
It coasts on adorability (Ted Danson and Jason Mendoza) but the writers have a knack for erasing the outline and having them/us recommence. They also pat themselves on the back by having an asian represented as inane but I find that limits the actor and society will think they're all stupid. You couldn't find a medium that doesn't propel an insult? 12-Feb-2018
October Faction (2020-)
"The Americans" in the Buffyverse with its own ideas.
Twins united is a powerful concoction. He's gay with no tolerance for sweetness and of suppressed privilege. She questions why her life doesn't fulfill her essence. They both do everything to upset their parents. Their awakening untangles excitedly.
Family history keeps the mythology pressing on.
Daddy has a gun, grandma has a gun, they all have a gun but no one grips it like mama.
The show handles its business like a bullet - straight through - no bullshit - not for squeaky screamers.
"Big Bad" seems to be representing.
There are a variety of monsters, entanglements and enlightenments for an open world of writing fun stuff. 29-Jan-2020
