Wife, The (2018)
A genius beholden to society for a privileged life granted. A wife chained to such a man with no identity of her own. The story compels but missteps by presuming that we wont respect the woman unless she is of equal caliber. Why can't we respect the wife that stands idly by? There are more of them. Close was adroitly hired to give a schmuck his comeuppance but the writing lets her down. The countdown gets stuck when sudden happens and Close is abruptly halted from slaying. An almost. 30-Jul-2019
Object Of My Affection, The (1998)
The intention is for its gay representation to be inclusive and equal to a straight lifestyle. It touches upon authentic concerns but its reality is askew. The main two keep chugging the charm and Allison Janney creates stillness when she exits a shot. It's a gay film made mostly to satiate a hetero audience. 20-May-2019
Blume In Love (1973)
A man thinks he can redeem his indiscretions by realizing his wife is the love of his life. The women keep it real, the story never flinches and George Segal keeps it nervously serial. The outcome is so fucked up it loses its purpose. 14-May-2019
I came close to forgiving the mounting horror cliches because the aspect of a troubled marriage being revived by isolation is worth exploration. Everything pertaining to the forest degrades it. 02-Mar-2019
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
Monster, The (2016)
Mother/daughter toxic relationship sorts itself through bloody conflict. Ella Ballentine shoulders emotional terror as daughter Lizzy and Zoe Kazan is the hopeless and consumed mother who wakes to nurture her survival. The monster is unexplained and unnecessary but is a requirement to drive the message. 13-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
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
House of Tomorrow (2017)
Had they borrowed from Ellen's "no bullshit " persona it would have tugged harder. 29-Dec-2018
The thrills emanate from Momoa's colossal brute, Wan's dazzling shots together with pulverizing action and allowing Kidman to kick ass. Whenever it announces its mythology the corn drips and the music swells. It's best to keep them minimal and quiet but DC is finally moving forward. 28-Dec-2018
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 terror arises from a vapid addiction and in the addition of numbers. Madeline Brewer's sensual tease and nervous sense of morality keep it edgy. 13-Dec-2018
Uglier than Chucky and Annabelle and coalesced with contemporary American horror bites. The absurdity compels hilarity. 10-Dec-2018
Mathilda May is other world perfection. The story is complete, the make-up impresses and the Brits exalt conspiracy authority. By end, the filmmakers are overcompensating and padding the screen with extras when all we want to see is daddy tackling the destructive seduction of the ideal woman he created. 23-Nov-2018
