It's the kind of creepy movie you take your significant other, to turn them off marriage. 27-Jan-2020
Invitation To Hell (1984)
It was a film better tolerated in the present but still a victim of its limitations.
There are golden nuggets:
Wes Craven kept it tight. The spacesuit caper and some action sequences spit art
Soleil Moon Frye does a spot-on imitation of Golem, before his time
La Lucci is a playful and committed demonic force. Tacky with hilarity, bitchiness and nerve
Robert Urich was pretty, in charge and in demand.
In The Tall Grass (2019)
What kills most of King's cinematic depictions is how mumble and jumble detract from realistic scares. 22-Jan-2020
I Wish I Never Met You - Oh Wonder
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
Unsettling, The (2019-)
It does not unsettle because there is no intrigue, sharp scare edits or anything besides Holly Taylor to give a damn about. 13-Jan-2020
Own Me - bulow
It's a high art profile of a Batman villain directed by Friday The Thirteenth. Margret brings her heroine to life by embodying the excited frustration of her realistic innocence for magic. Her character is underwritten and suffers from "who cares" but she was in it. Hopkins is our favorite crazy man whose practice and natural talent always have a way of invading its space. It is not a clean performance. He hits as many times as he bounces but what he lands is electric. A film, that in time, might grow into something. 11-Jan-2020
Lost In Space (2018-)
Season 2 served so much syrup it almost drowned the pancakes. The Robinson's catastrophe meter wriggled so much I wondered why they're not in pieces. Am I supposed to notice that the robot has a big ass? The action rumbles, throttles and shakes you down. Big-screen treatment for a TV mindset. Dr. Smith is a hoot bitchier, the actors are scratching their posts and I'm still in. 05-Jan-2020
Even though the orangutan inspired robot invalidates its predecessor the show succeeded in modern interpretation. There's papi squish, mama force, baby hutzpah and multicultural opportunity. Constructive sci-fi action and Parker Posey's iteration of Dr. Smith as the ultimate lying bitch are its standouts. 29-Jun-2018
Leave it to California ("the Hellmouth") to turn a serial into a romantic victim. The pyschology was bi-polar and the disentanglements were happenstance and charred. I'm not excited to see a third season. 31-Dec-2019
The thrill of the cum trampled by a kick in the balls. The delicacies of love entrenched by intrinsic mind bending. Badgley steals the crown structuring the depth of his humanity and indignation. 20-Apr-2019
Assassin - Au/Ra
Eyes Of My Mother, The (2016)
The film adds no psychological perception of its theme. The director contributes affecting shots but the scares arise from unbound cruelty. 26-Dec-2019
Twice Upon A Time (2019-)
Back to the future for love. The outline leaves you screaming for more but the two leads grind so intently, they keep you posted. 25-Dec-2019
A Christmas Carol (2019-)
The legend of Scrooge modernized for a realistic mind.
It could've done with some trimming but it still shined.
Guy Pearce dashes, preys and rips as Scrooge. He deduces everything and everyone but himself. His softness towards animals was clever and the "humbugs" were well-earned.
Vinette Robinson (Mary Cratchit) deserves kudos for supplying it with its heart and its threat.
Joe Alwyn had passionate battles with Scrooge that eclipsed the baby blues.
The modern is simple. Scrooge represents every blogger with a gripe that can no longer concede to ideology...the spirits are the influencers, the magic makers and the Gladys Kravitz.' "Bully that man until he burns to the ground or apologizes."
The clues unlock in gift boxes. The heart was put in all the right places. Surprising the viewer with a repetitive tradition is no easy task. Respect.
We all have a Scrooge that we are safe from, whilst we live on the other side, except it's getting harder to stay there. 22-Dec-2019
Venus In Furs (1969)
Hot stuff (James Darrin) obsesses over dead girl. Like the drugged out haze it was written and directed in, the film lingers on aspects that make it boring. It was bold to include an interracial couple and lesbians romping freely but the sex scenes consisted of a man's back against a woman's catlike nails on repetition. Giving Barbara McNair the insufferable title song hurt her vocal chords and our ears. By the end, you'll feel as misplaced as James Darrin. 20-Dec-2019
