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
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
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
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
I was going to complain that the corn was killing my daddies (women included) but then Daddy Michael, Daddy Athena and Christmas happened. You bastards! 09-Dec-2019
Welcome back daddies! 25-Sep-2019
Unexpected thoughtfulness. 08-May-2019
I no longer have Buffy but I still have you. The last two episodes wrung every artistic sentiment my mind could withstand. Thank you. 06-Apr-2019
The company allowed the schmuck in me to celebrate Christmas. 02-Dec-2018
The daddy (Bassett and Hines included) heroics are inventive, the pulse quickens with current thinking and our hearts get pulled. 25-Oct-2018
A great action piece can energize an attention span but plugging the acting talent to words that allow them to emote beautifully is sublime. 12-Mar-2018
We're in dire need of heroes to save us and Murphy's latest gift is ready to give them to us. Connie Britton and Peter Krause have returned to dominant form, Angela Bassett is having fun and Oliver Stark is a fragile delicacy. The stunts wallop, the words are thoughtful and inclusive and Ryan and crew are experimental ninjas. 16-Jan-2018
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
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
Influence, The (2019)
Mother issues. Granny is scary, child is scarier and even though the threads are incomplete, the kills poke. 21-Oct-2019
Future twink is tortured via experimentation for his better health. All its flaws are abolished by a ludicrous surprise that lashes out at parenting, religion and common sense. I found myself rejoicing at the outcome. 19-Oct-2019
It's exhilarating to watch Armie Hammer unravel but the film's obscurity abandons him. 19-Oct-2019
You Are Wanted (2017-)
There were many pieces scattered and many more that fell into place. It was dark and relentless, assuming a person becoming as accused to protect love. Mama dragon, mama hearts, mama loner and mama kicker commanded their segments. The finale was a satisfying knit of everything that was carefully stitched before. 17-Oct-2019
Controlling a person and penetrating the third layer via tech. A cat and mouse thriller that thrills the more cues it drops. 15-Oct-2019
Man doesn't become until his woman nags him into it. There are two options to the mystery that are obviously dangled throughout the film's course. They are both marred by unnecessary glances that give away the plot, slight dialogue and perplexing demonstrations. Even when he's awkward, Worthington manages to remain squishy. 12-Oct-2019
