Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse (2023)
I've never met a Puerto Rican that talks like Miles. Even though he's half the race he would never retain his father's accent because no Puerto Rican mother would allow it. He lives like a Puerto Rican. By the way, we are more than platanos and empanadas. We also love pork, rice, fried everything, chicken, fish, beef, chinese food, lasagne, pizza, anything and beans. If the father is black and the mother is Puerto Rican where did the Morales name come from? Bad Bunny, Ricky Martin and Izzy from Love is Blind S5 are great examples of Puerto Rican speak. At least when white people did it they tried to sound like us. Peter Parker sounded like a dork flake. The first half abused a soundtrack that distorted musicology. It played like a 45 on repeat. Keeping up with the psychological speed was phenomenal, the art was crisp and when the musical score interrupted the playlist, it didn't suck. If your child itches, this is a classic, the others might become anxious. 02-Nov-2023
The controversy is unfounded. It is a coming of age story in which a girl realizes that the the only power out of a man's stranglehold is sex. Women, men and religion are not copacetic. Daddy is legally permitted to bring home a second wife and daughter and mother must celebrate it. The girls are reflecting the American pop icons that make female freedom seem so attainable. "Look, they can twerk their asses and shake their tits in public and no one stones them. They are considered queens living in castles above the clouds and everybody loves them. Their husbands are so cute and submissive. Little girls want to be loved and secretly twerk like adults. Parenting 101. Like most of its inspiration, the talent is unjustifiable. They can't dance. (My mother would have hiked up the kid's diaper, turned it into a plastic thong and had baby jiggling her ass for candy and male applause. I did it but only when they got me drunk. No kidding.) The atmosphere is full of enthusiasm with breaths of color. Female muslim prayer is actually represented. Good performances earn it praise but its lack of warmth and resolution hurt. A woman's best weapon is silence. 11-Sep-2020
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
Blackcoat's Daughter, The (2015)
Every persona suffers from peculiarity. The film courses through a dark vein and almost clinches God vs monster but it left too many holes uncapped. 25-Oct-2019
Look Away (2018)
It takes its cues from "Carrie" without employing a director's bag of tricks. India Eisley's beauty is evident at first glance so there is no launch metamorphosis. Her Maria should ignite uncontrollable rage and attack from boys not bullying and insecurity. The mirror is where many tricks could have been deployed but minute experimentation and bad editing keep it cold and non-dimensional. The daddy seduction is a successful creep that doesn't consummate, explanations are not forthcoming, the bully gets no follow-up, mama is useless and the writers employed little sense. 13-Oct-2019
Invaders From Mars (1953)
To watch this film you have to tap into your child and understand the limitations of its time. It gets to business almost immediately, all is accepted at face value and good and evil hold to their lanes. It has a great start and there are enough influences to accommodate its art but the martians are silly. 10-Oct-2019
Final Destination, The (2009)
Its thoroughness in mapping derails the anticipation of fright. 05-Nov-2018
Florida Project, The (2017)
It was a contender for greatness. It tests our patience of children, the ingratitude of charity and the dejection of hope. The candy color added brilliance to poverty and the actors took realism to gut. Unfortunately, the finale adds delusion to reality and makes us feel cheated for watching a Disney commercial as crisp and removed as its music. 07-Oct-2018
Parents of the year contend with a rude awakening. Just when Nicole's volcano of talent erupts the movie blindsides us with an inconclusive fate. 24-Jul-2018
Love Liza (2002)
The movie never lets up its depressive state. Hoffman digs so deep and personal that its hard to withstand the character he ascribes. He has a mental illness beyond depression and his unwillingness to move forward after tragedy hints that what he mourns was not deserved. Anything eventually would have rendered him dependent and his wife knew that. 20-Jul-2018
It hangs by a good thought that the planet could be saved if we eliminate mankind but the presentation lacks. 28-Jun-2018
Take Me To The River (2015)
Hillbilly family reunion corrodes when mindless gay teen usurps flamboyance against parental repression. Combustion arises from a "me too" moment wherein the offended family ascribe scaring the "California" out of the teen. It's courageously choreographed and uniquely categorized but when the balloon pops it fizzles. The sexual indiscretion that drives the suspense has no explanation, resolution or respect. Chicken fighting has been ruined. 21-Jun-2018
Collector, The (2009)
Schooling for psychopaths on how to execute an ugly death. It's bloody torture. 20-Jun-2018
Indian in the Cupboard (1995)
The effects hold up better than the story. Lonely boy gets fantastical gift that brings toys to life and extols him godlike qualities and judgment.
I don't understand how casting dominion over an American Indian's life progresses the man or the child. The life-toys don't get a life ending which asserts that they were only playthings for an unseen boy.
The story asks us to dispense with logic more than we're capable. 14-May-2018
Maddening tale about a ridiculous man whose lateness from work inspires him to bail on his wife and daughters to not to have to explain. He moves above the garage to spy on them and become homeless and disgusting, all the while ejaculating the reasons his wife and children have made him a miserable man, none of which is evident. This is an exercise for Bryan Cranston to act up which he obliges like the spirit of Harvey Korman. He's a trainwreck you can't stop watching until the movie veers the train in your face. 22-Mar-2018
