Love Witch, The (2016)
I did a double take when I realized the film wasn't set in the cheesy 60's gothic era. The women are dead ringers for the pristine beauty of that time and the daddies are porn succulence. The witch is a backwards feminist, desperate for love but her potions and sex stratagems only work precoital. Love turns men into quivering slobbering mush as the witch becomes vexed and resentful. The film is experimental, nonsensical and devoid of magic. 15-Mar-2020
Big Time Adolescence (2019)
I was expecting a rebellious and outrageous comedy but was impressed with a calm rendition of a boy's passage to manhood. $, drugs, sex and girls are what a boy negotiates during this stage of exploration but the satisfaction of being cool with your bud is everything. Gluck, Davidson and Cryer epitomize the title and lend credence to why they don't want to grow up.The film's detachment impedes greatness but it was close. 14-Mar-2020
I Am Jonas (2019)
Allowing youthful discretions to define the gay fuck-up you become in life. The boys (young and old) are peak representation and the film strives to be authentic. 14-Mar-2020
Piece of shit about a Charlie's angel being possessed by a spiteful demon. The spiteful demon is a woman that accepts no bullshit from a man and punishes him for it. As she hurts no one but, I see no reason to destroy her. She's today's woman. When Bobbie Bresee's Playboy playmate regresses to her childhood trauma like Sally Field in "Sybil," it was brilliant hilarity. LaWanda Page was hilarious. A lot of the film is hilarious and ridiculous and preposterous. It's a piece of shit that entertains.
A cleanup might do it good. 13-Mar-2020
Knives Out (2019)
Whodunnits don't need explanation. A fresh appeal for a chess match. Everything with Plummer spun magnificently but Craig jacked Spacey's southern flourish with little success. The support were ready but remained pawns in a game. They didn't flesh out. The unraveling was dry and predictable but the mystery qualified. 08-Mar-2020
To All The Boys I Loved Before 2 (2020)
The protagonists ease us in, the rehash disappoints and I wish the support could do more than hold the leads' walls. I wanted to engage in Lara Jean's and Peter's commitment. The fragility that Lara Jean exposed would, in the real world, bring her hurt. Cheating cannot be the only reason couples break up. I will continue to watch but it needs to consummate (not talking about sex.) 29-Feb-2020
Lion King, The (2019)
Its paced like a cartoon which kills the organic emotional impact because it seems rushed.
The score swelled and stomped on all the sentiments the story was setting. It's hard to feel something when it's already been decided for you.
The baby voices were stronger than their mature counterparts.
The soundtrack sparkled with new modulations.
It's a retread with no originality injected... wrapped in a gorgeous package. 29-Feb-2020
Night Before, The (1988)
Typical boy loses prom date which allows us to spend the night with him... retracing his steps. The details include rape, white slavery and violence. It really doesn't matter though... you watch because Keanu Reeves made a most huggable teen and Lori Loughlin struck with killer looks and scary everything else. 24-Feb-2020
To All The Boys I Loved Before (2018)
Teen romcom sweetness. 23-Feb-2020
Airport '77 (1977)
What it reserves in thrills it expounds in detail and raw film work. The pros lathered the soap like it was Shakespeare, it was diverse and actors were allowed to sweat. A movie that sits better out of its time. 21-Feb-2020
It Comes At Night (2017)
It's tight, mysterious, exasperating, horrifying and complete. People who live in bubbles should never venture out. 20-Feb-2020
Son, The (2019)
A husband thinks his wife's environmental overprotectiveness towards their son is the reason she's keeping the boy from him. Everyone is intense, suspicious and naturally creepy. You clench to the finish line waiting in exasperation to find out who's what. It satisfies and saddles a surprisingly happy ending that complements the horror. 17-Feb-2020
Prodigy, The (2019)
Baby boy may be sharing his soul with a serial killer. Boy teeters from angelic self-preservation to cunning and violent crack bitch. He is particularly fixated in scouring dad which is an enervating highlight. Mama is all heart, fighting the reality of what her son has become. Her cure is to commit a crime to liberate him and absolve him from evil. 06-Feb-2020
Long Weekend (1978)
Naturists get punished for victimizing nature. A scary environmentalist panty creamer. 05-Feb-2020
Fifth Floor, The (1978)
Party girl suffering from strychnine poisoning is mistakenly locked up in a mental institution for trying to commit suicide. It comments frighteningly on mental health institutions, the psychos they hire to to treat them and the human error and danger that exists in psychiatric quackery. 30-Jan-2020
