It was starting to feel like an allegory for reluctant parenting but the writer couldn't unhitch from irrelevance. 05-Dec-2019
Satan Met A Lady (1936)
They hired accomplished actors to line read with little expression except snide, stupid or cute. The characters are comic strip flat. 04-Dec-2019
Thing From Another World, The (1951)
Causing terror with good old fashioned Hollywood techniques. The film reboots beautifully because it's brilliant. They delivered a completely terrifying story and trusted the audience to use their imagination. 03-Dec-2019
Carol Of The Bells - Epic Music Version
Recreating the best Christmas dad gave him. 22-Nov-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
Terminal Man (1974)
Adding a computer to a killer's brain was supposed to rehabilitate him. It was progressive. It had a prominent female doctor and a black magician's assistant.
Joan Hackett was an accomplished Sarah Paulson without the amount of accolades.
George Segal was dumbfounding, cringingly stamping the mediocrity evident in the poor treatment of a great story. 22-Nov-2019
American Horror Story: 1984 (2019-)
S9E9. The Murphyverse met the Whedonverse and it was magical. 20-Nov-2019
S9E7. Standalone horror perfection. 01-Nov-2019
Am I going to have to take viagra for the rest of the season? I never thought I'd need it, but ok. 26-Sep-2019
Simplicity is the best tailored suit for horror. The mythology is trembly and the franchise is freshening up.
Gus Kentworthy can feed a hungry gay senior trailer park with a strip and a flex. Emma Roberts is making all the right choices. Cody Fern is still holding back a layer. Matthew Morrison's penis is LOL. Leslie Grossman works better alone. Billie Lourd wants to steal it and Papa Murph is initiating another squirt test. 22-Sep-2019
Picture of Dorian Gray, The (1941)
George Sanders spends the first act posing as if the film centered around him and philosophizing harshly on life matters. Angela Lansbury's Sibyl Vane is miscast and depleted of sensuality. Hurd Hatfield is agamous and ambiguous with no hunt for the debaucheries the writers keep mentioning he's into. The portrait and the narration had the only life the film required. 03-Nov-2019
It's a film out of time in a space that a generation didn't complain about. The first is man's ego and his perception of the ideal woman (she doesn't speak.) The second evokes the woman as she really is (she doesn't stop talking.) The last is a caper that ties the loose bits with a feminine swing in snappy grand style. Shirley is slinky cat to Caine's dastardly bat. 02-Nov-2019
A concoction of horror and sci-fi that dance when married. 01-Nov-2019
Beyond, The (1981)
Movie madness. It has you traverse through the bloody gates of hell as it promises. 30-Oct-2019
A film practice run. It's hard to gear up for characters minutely defined especially when they easily accept transcendent ideas. We need insight to understand their choices. Debrianna Mansini casts a lustrous presence that established "no other dead need apply" and Theo Rossi squished craftily. 28-Oct-2019
Black KKKlansman (2018)
In order to be entertained by a Spike Lee movie, you must see it to the end.
The beginning stacks so much hate that it begins to feel uncomfortable especially when our current sensibilities are asserted. I felt like the movie was about switching roles which is not equality but subjugation.
John David Washington kept his Stallworth steady when he needed to grow into him. Mr. Stallworth would have been one of a kind and he would appear grateful and not establish his big dick presence (it's an attitude) so early.
Adam Driver seems alive again. He gave his quiet hero a timber.
The details I will remember are the dumbfuck ones. Somebody needed to check out Driver's dick, a cop shouldn't ever use his real name in an investigation and the black KKKlansman was basically a phone operative.
Every ending was a celebration to cheer, laugh and finally understand Lee's idea.
Happy Death Day 2U (2019)
It veers and continues, adds Big Bang to theorize whilst amping prior situations to add a new mystery. They rip a few pages from Halloween 2 and all the audacity from Back to the Future Part II. 27-Oct-2019
Funhouse, The (1981)
The premise is sold as soon as Hooper snaps everything into place. (What a missed opportunity not giving him a Bat to direct.) 27-Oct-2019
