A Demon Within (2017)
Child is perceived being possessed by a demon because of sudden unruliness or she could just be a teenager. There are times that the act and the tech apply a heft that is worth a better story. Maybe it will play better in the future. 18-Feb-2019
Conan, The Barbarian (1982)
Beauty of body, style, music and hard work. James Earl Jones devours as Arnold embodies. Its parts work better than its whole. 13-Feb-2019
Four Seasons, The (1981)
Constitutional portrait of human relationships spread across the seasons and invigorated by expert hands. The actors stir magic by integrating personality and star to their characters. Carol's beauty resonates when she makes us laugh and when she cracks up. 10-Feb-2019
Feminine Touch, The (1941)
Sex war rom com served by master wits (Don Ameche, Rosalind Russell, Van Heflin and Kay Francis.) Ameche and Rosalind defy lack of chemistry but Heflin and Francis uplift the back end. The logic stipulates that men classify a woman's worth by the amount of selected howlers sniffing at her door. All the woman wants is for her man to grow a pair and punch the howlers sniffing at her door. 06-Feb-2019
House on Sorority Row, The (1983)
Infertile woman defies God by utilizing a mad doctor and unleashing horror onto the environment. The actors make it comfortable, the kills are chopped incoherently and the story decelerates unexpectedly. 06-Feb-2019
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
The actors couldn't locate the essence in character.
Howard is adept at expounding on a thought previously introduced. The magic materializes when he confronts his thoughts. It's a tough exercise with his stamp gently placed upon it. He needed to make it tremble.
(Chewy made sense.) 03-Feb-2019
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
Moore's evil is low battery, Berry's dweeb is unfortunate, the political leanings are red and the action rouses preposterous invention. Even though daddies squished aplenty, to my enjoyment was added guilt. 24-Jan-2019
Period of Adjustment (1962)
The utters of Fonda and Hutton chanted high. Tony Franciosa kept the octaves low and his charisma forward. John McGiver sets and Mabel Albertson resists becoming the in-law stereotype. They glorified it. Lois Nettleton steals it because she could.
Marriage is deemed a terror, everyone screams their heads off until a surprise gift changes it. It has a loud message but you can still hear it.
Unfortunately, George Roy Hill's absurdity didn't allow Tennessee to be tragic. It's what the writer did best. 03-Jan-2019
Santa Claus (1959)
The mind sizzles with filmic ideas but it rejects the flipping from good to evil. It's a concoction for idle thinkers. 26-Dec-2018
Cuaron's acute respect for the latino community grants the actors a flow of naturalness. He stills the camera and holds us down but the punches are seldom. His scrupulousness doesn't allow the story to move forward, to be appreciated or ingested. Black and white is an art trick that binds it to a timeless blur. 20-Dec-2018
The porn stars are depicted as twelve year olds forever playing. An AIDS crisis bulldozes the industry to maturity but a scapegoat keeps the party going. 13-Dec-2018
Batman: Bad Blood (2016)
The bats extend their wings, the birds prey and the story unfolds without the harness live film cuckolds. They are free to explore the complexities of their being. 02-Nov-2018
An American Rhapsody (2001)
A child established with world displacement by parental and governmental abandon. The accents are tuneless, Goldwyn can take a beating, Kinski bears mother regret and Johansson freshens teenage rebellion. A deeper study could have generated considerable empathy and provoked an argument instead of halting lightly. 25-Oct-2018
Small pot, lightly simmered, stirred with some creative ideas. The scares come from our thoughts. 03-Oct-2018
Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic (2013)
His upbringing decided what he would become but his art established how we remember him. He admitted his shortcomings, paid a penance and allowed us to think past the laughter. 28-Sep-2018
