Eurovision Song Contest (2020)
Brother/sister romance tackle art and temptation at a song contest.
Will Ferrell's character's age kept gnawing at me. How old is he supposed to be? How old is his sister? His father? Ferrell plays the eternal kid that refuses to wear big boy britches even for comfort. Ours.
Rachel McAdams deserved a singing partner.
Dan Stevens left it at the Abbey. He should go pick it up.
I knew it was Demi Lovato before I saw her. It was the screaming.
The music is way too silly to enjoy, coming in constant waves of annoyance. I don't care what the rules are, sing it live. Too much? 01-Jul-2020
River's Edge (1986)
Friendships are unrealized when a mate kills one.
The kids react like chained animals. They're curious, they don't really feel anything but they know it's wrong.
The parents have stopped pretending. The miraculous is a teenager too complicated to bear. The kids may be exploring and exploding in their new life but the parents are just holding on to any kind of life. The parents share their drugs, problems, violence and sexuality. They absolve the kids' of choices they socially incur and never check out what they are.
Crispin Glover was a high that had me swaying all kinds of ways. Good and awful.
Keanu waved his hair back and forth like an urchin destined for greater things.
When the writing goes over, truth reins it in.
The musical score kept the story breathing.
The director pinpointed everything we needed to see and hear. Its aroma was DePalma.
The final analysis for murder is realistic and unjustifiably hard.
Being one of the most sensitive beings in the world does not always grant empathy.
Snitches get laid. (It's a tongue thing.) 25-Jun-2020
Ad Astra (2019)
Universal travel, planet saving and soaring daddy issues.
The director feeds us unique vistas and exhilarating action but makes us feel like we're riding a bullet train. It spins by, it's amazing, I'm glad I saw it but it didn't mean anything. It had no attachment to the story.
Pitt attacks like it's his story to tell. He's exhausted, full of gruff and self analyzation. It was a most personal rendition.
Tommy Lee is "grand" daddy to everything Pitt did. 22-Jun-2020
Invisible Man, The (2020)
The blood transfusion works to bring an old tale new life. The invisible remains a figment throughout which makes us suspicious of the scares. (We don't want to jump for nothing.) The great Moss is type stuck in Handmaiden suffering. Horror for a new age, rummaging with bold ideas, technically mapped for complete culmination. 12-Jun-2020
Uncle Buck (1989)
No one puts a brat in its place like an asshole. Candy with children is gold. 12-Jun-2020
Miracle Worker, The (1962)
Wild child with disabilities gets reformed by teacher whose demons compel her to impart self reliance. The film's effectiveness relies on protagonist nerve and muscle. Duke and Bancroft, not only slap it, punch it and break it they receive it, just as well. The psychology was that a child that inflicts pain must undergo it to better understand their crime. All the parental rules we dethroned, helped erect the special intelligence of an unidentified child. At end of story, the combatants celebrate the characters and, I hope, each other for a job well-done.
Third Day, The (1965)
Can a man become an enlightened human if an accident causes him amnesia? Not if your mug is still wanted for murder.
George Peppard is grand business daddy, never demurring from blankness while still eliciting great face.
Elizabeth Ashley was privileged bitch wife, with an redemptive opportunity for love and a zestful beauty of another.
Sally Kellerman knew how to turn it on and shut men down.
Mona Washbourne elicited comic wit relief and parental heartbreak.
Roddy McDowell. The best cocksucker in Hollywood actually had other talents.
Arte Johnson crept trying to put a creepy face on a "love me" persona.
Music. It sounded like every summer blockbuster score rolled into one.
It's sumptuously over, to guiltily enjoy. 11-May-2020
Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971)
Stagnant study, of a woman and a man sharing a relationship with a twinkster. The rules are the same no matter the generation or the politic. The bird marches on the streets of beauty, protesting the disparity of life while ignoring the feelings of those around him. His fluidity grants him power to cross pollinate and be voraciously welcomed by those of privilege whose lack in life is progressive. To the woman he brings sexual fulfillment and purpose, to the man, a sense of accomplishment and pride. Youth ping pongs between them like the parents he needs right now, not the lovers he'll end up with, later. Birds must fly as parents must contend with surviving on memories. Children and family are an aside that contain the most life. The children annoy as much as delight, smoking drugs, having fits, asking complicated questions, noticing sexual things and killing dogs. 06-May-2020
We The Animals (2018)
Neglectful, abusive parenting and the unruly children it creates. Papi squishes to no avail and mama ponders daddy dick so mightily that she relegates the boys to tools of diversion. The boys are cold specimens meandering the world fantasizing in it or fucking with it because they have no life skills. In the end, we are supposed to celebrate a sexual awakening that smells of molestation. I'm not good with that. 26-Apr-2020
Black Widow (1954)
Befriending pretty young things is bad for a man's health and his marriage. Van Heflin is joy of talent, uncoiling his anger at every surprise turn and thrashing women like an equal. Gene Tierney upholds the confused and doting wife, Peggy Ann Garner adds vulnerability to her con and Ginger Rogers sparkles as an empowered success story, dethroning men and failing at everything except bravado. People ponder with intelligence, the crime keeps flooding and the bitchfest hums. 23-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
Funny Farm (1988)
Couple retiring in weird bumblefuck county. The laughs are spaced, mapped and allowed to spread extensively. Chevy controls his doofus charms to evoke the frustrations of a man destined for failure and Madolyn Smith steals it with her Tina Fey example. No buffoonery shall enter a George Roy Hill film. He does the oddity, revenge and relationship proud. 10-Apr-2020
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
Lobster, The (2015)
Couples rule in a post cruel world. If you don't find a mate they turn you into an animal. Its royal art of weirdness with little justification and a vivid imagination. Colin inherits a comedian's edge, puncturing the establishment in a catatonic state and making us laugh and cheer. Rachel Weisz keeps the heart of the film beating and Yorgos is crazy. 29-Mar-2020
Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (1954)
Men were men, maintaining the environment and women were the foundation of the home. Women complain and acquiesce; men do and expect. It was a time for falling immensely in love at first sight.. hearing about her... smelling her... he's fuckin' big. The cavemen are fuckable, idiotic and tamable. Except for the main and a purring pussycat the brides are an indistinguishable group. They desired less but they connived, demanded and bended it to their advantage like a future President. It's joyous to a fault especially when kidnapping little girls. The music no longer vibrates like it did but the hoofing was athletic muscularity. 20-Mar-2020
