Sea Fever (2019)
Marine Biology student with no social graces gets punished. She has to spend a week on a fishing boat with strangers and foreigners to soothe her mind of robotic intelligence.
Hermoine Corfield plays it clumsy and rough. She adapts to the idea that intelligence needs to be shared, as well as acquired to benefit anyone.
Connie Nielsen raises plenty of steam as a female captain at her wits end with a fucking husband who's constantly showing her up.
Olwen Fouere smashed the boat. Dougray Scott's macho fragility grants him exclusivity to daddy home care package status. Ardalan Esmaili is smart slippery daddy squish.
There are no heroes, the choices are sound, the parasite creeps and the subtlety of the menace illuminates the thought. Well done, Neasa Hardiman (director.) 01-Aug-2020
Once You Kiss A Stranger (1969)
Strangers on a Train stop at Fatal Attraction. Carol Lynley is a Peter Pan wet dream that never relents. She scares children with harpoon guns, she brawls with pet cats and she threatens old people with off-color gossip, death fascinations and frequent visits. Her mental health is homicidal. Ms. Lynley unbinds from daddy adoration and shakes her personal hate towards everyone. The daddies have expiration dates and are being coerced into reclaiming #1 status or lose thoughts of ever having a "good time,"again. Once an unknown pixie enters a married man's hotel room with her nightie on, he's fucked. The tribute is soaped up and spread out, the stunts are hilarious and the actors don't lose a beat. It stings and entertains, like mexican candy.
Go Tell It On The Mountain (1985)
Exploring the unity a church provides to a community struggling to stay afloat.
The protagonist is a teenage stepson born out of lust and into parents of mighty faith and little activity. The boy envisions his place in a white world that bestows him educational merit and Hollywood allure. Stepdaddy preacher has white resentment and believes the boy must learn the word of Jesus and disavow all the teachings of the white man so he can claim his benefits afterlife.
Great arguments ensue about what is a sin, enjoyment and a life. Boys don't want to be socked in a church when there is adventure, sex and violence to be had. Fear of community misrepresentation causes the parents to lock children in. (It seems we are always in one prison or other.)
Paul Winfield is the man of sin whose only recompense is Jesus. Blindsided and stubborn he fights to be the master of a household that's always revolting. His authority is frightful, his words are probable and his weapon is God.
The shading of the past to inculcate the steps of the future was tight. When the female actors revolt and exorcise their demons, crazy hungry talent is displayed. The boys were humble with pride.
The end is an exorcism that doesn't coerce any answers but that may be its point. No one knows shit. 21-Jul-2020
A woman running from privilege and crippling family expectations, an immigrant daddy breaking all the rules so his family can taste freedom, a daddy enforcer justifying the cruelty of his position and the family he needs to provide for and a woman in charge drowned by logistics and empathy. Everyone looking for a state that will unleash them and love them.
The immigrants leave a torturous country to protest in the land of sanctuary.
Yvonne Strahovski whacks insanity into our heads until she/us can't take it. Jai Cortney daddy hulks with great emotion. Rachel House nails scary bitch. The colorful cast represents with dignity.
Well thought and gruffly executed to punch a message through. "Just one of you have to matter."
I May Destroy You (2020)
Michaela Cole is a wordmeister and her vision keeps compelling.
I do hope rape doesn't define a woman's lifetime. According to this representation, most men are rapists. It forced me to calculate how many more times I was sexually assaulted when I thought I was hooking up and added another 156 to the other hundred molesters. Bang Zoom! 16-Jul-2020
It courageously tackles the subservient role a black woman plays in interrace sex. (This show is not kidding.) 26-Jun-2020
Michaela Cole represents a harmful truth that is socially forgiven until the effects punt it. Her soul swings with support staff. I'm in. 15-Jun-2020
Color Of Space, The (2019)
Meteor lands on bubble family property and affects change. Nic is allowed full psycho mode but the word and the psychology betray him. One minute he's canoodling with the wife and the next he is lacerating his teenage daughter like there's a history of childhood molestation. There is no consistency of character. All sexual innuendos and racial discrepancies are applied to animals. Thank God. There is a glimmer of an invasion but it's mostly about the effect. Fuck that. I want to see aliens. 14-Jul-2020
Quake, The (2018)
Papa is an obsessed conspiracy theorist and mama is comatose. The action shivers but there is only so much disaster this family/us can take. 10-Jul-2020
Alexandre Aja is not a wordmeister. His muscles pop when monster creation plows in, the action roars and we jump. (The flashbacks killed the element of surprise.) 03-Jul-2020
Long lost uncle returns to crunch some balls. The first half is backwoods grit thriller but once the adventure ensues you are whisked away to a myth. Jamie Bell does solid work exhibiting his animal urges against obligation whilst the daddies gruff hard. I didn't understand little brother's gross ailment. 01-Jul-2020
The sea bursts with trans merms, foreign landers and common ground.
The throuple endangers itself for the esteem of want and need.
Eline Powell stamped her signature on otherworldly and frightening beauty.
An interracial cast that realistically blends.
The mythology holes don't stop me from digging it.
The aqua war delivered TV best.
The characters can't stop me from caring for it.
Women own the water that men feed from.
It's an analogy for many things but the message is to respect all life.
Beautiful colors of the universe are united to show us their TV Q.
The daddies are pretty big things, rescuing respectfully and allowing the women, heroism.
The throuple has me banging my head. It's hot, unique, eek and curious.
The mythology is well done, the effects don't suck and my favorite merman is chocolate. 23-Jun-2020
S1E3. I'm getting Kyle XY jitters along with Carrie mermaid spooks. It takes us away from the muck and asks that we be entertained. 16-Jun-2020
Shipwrecked on Predator Island. Kiersey Clemons flexes survivor strength but the monster is a fishy abstract with animal velocity. Had it contained a bit of instinctual territorial vengeance, it would have crashed the waves. 13-Jun-2020
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)
Mr. Rogers was part of my baby ghetto but I was never aware of being a fan. He relaxed me, informed me, and chimed the right bells to put a baby to sleep. The movie depends on Tom Hanks delivering the persona of a man who defies goodness. Hanks is perfect in intonation, style and determination but he adds an element of creepiness that only comes with voracious study and involuntary realization. I kept waiting for him to go Joker and annihilate. It ruined it for me. 12-Jun-2020
Wicker Man, The (1973)
Christian copper investigates missing child on pagan island. Edward Woodward keeps it desperate and unleashing, the atmosphere is lawless and unethical and the music lilts as well as unsettle. The horror isn't physically evident but mentally, it sticks like gum to a shoe. 19-May-2020
In order for a robot to gain more humanity, humans must become more robotic. (I think we're there.) 04-May-2020
Its undoing is its failure to convince us why the robots have so much human emotion. If you can't digitally master it, our brains will not conceive it.
Its spite and success is due to a brilliant presentation, staggering mamas and devastating daddies.
Wood gives Dolores the stature of uniqueness and the stoic elegance necessary to keep her fascinating but it's time for her to get her machine on.
Ed Harris. Daddy cowboy of legend. Gives great face, looks fun in bed and he's a cowboy.
Jeffrey Wright. This is the daddy you get high with. Great ideas and crazy sex.
Thandie Newton. Her act is fit and she'd be the action-figure I would buy if I was twelve.
Luke Hemsworth. A Hemsworth pillow. He's a snuggle daddy with survival skills.
Tessa Thompson. Proud to have her on any team.
Aaron Paul. Delicate daddy with violent tendencies and dedication or Next Door Daddy.
Vincent Cassell. Daddy, "yeah, I'd fuck him."
The fight scenes enlivened, real robots ignited and the future looked bright. (We'll see how they fuck it up.)
We feast on a most delectable future whilst our brains ping pong. Wright daddied up, Wood is glam assassin, Paul does his thing and Newton yums. 17-Mar-2020
Frozen II (2019)
Its beauty is deceptive.
There is no thought or flourish to the story and no realism to the dialogue. Children have deeper conversations than this.
They are constantly bombarded by magical things, yet still wonder at the next.
The songs are its enemy. The songwriters write songs for talkers not classically trained singers. The musical artists could not wrap their talent around them. The words weren't tonal or melodious. (A thesaurus might have helped.) Each song was a giant whoopee cushion to the ear.
I wished the snowman had melted. (I'm sorry, I've spent too much time with Gervais.)
The presentation is built to make a grown man cringe.
If it weren't so gorgeous, I'd stop fucking it.
Bring on number 3. (Sigh) 02-May-2020
