It was starting to feel like an allegory for reluctant parenting but the writer couldn't unhitch from irrelevance. 05-Dec-2019
Boy's mental health shatters when he discovers that his girl hiccups for all the boys. Keir Gilchrist was prepared to inhabit what Tony Perkins stamped but the writers were too intent on keeping it romantic. 29-Nov-2019
Mutations. It's a well served platter with no additives or dessert. I wanted to eat from Gina Rodriguez' buffet table. The girl knows how to pour it and yell for seconds. 27-Nov-2019
Terminal Man (1974)
Adding a computer to a killer's brain was supposed to rehabilitate him. It was progressive. It had a prominent female doctor and a black magician's assistant.
Joan Hackett was an accomplished Sarah Paulson without the amount of accolades.
George Segal was dumbfounding, cringingly stamping the mediocrity evident in the poor treatment of a great story. 22-Nov-2019
Human trafficking. The film reads like a book cover. The director omits all the details and experiences that would have elevated the message. The monstrosity was so minimal that I had no idea what the protagonist was actually suffering. The fear of exploitation mars audience reaction and participation. 06-Nov-2019
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
It delineates the first Santa, full of godlike vengeance and destruction. The film parodies like a summer blockbuster with striking imagery and a cheerleading score. It chugs along, never delivering the titular monster and rabidly tugging at our hearts. 05-Nov-2019
Picture of Dorian Gray, The (1941)
George Sanders spends the first act posing as if the film centered around him and philosophizing harshly on life matters. Angela Lansbury's Sibyl Vane is miscast and depleted of sensuality. Hurd Hatfield is agamous and ambiguous with no hunt for the debaucheries the writers keep mentioning he's into. The portrait and the narration had the only life the film required. 03-Nov-2019
Giant Little Ones (2018)
A bj amongst boys causes consternation amongst girlfriends, family and friendships. It's Brokeback High with much consideration to honesty, acceptance and meditation. The teens keep it pretty, the elders transmit concern and the whole perches confusingly, like real life. 27-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
It thought Three Stooges hilarity could save it. Helen Slater, her costume and her hair legitimizes it and Bochner doesn't hurt but everything else is bargain basement. I quit it because I didn't feel like falling asleep for a third time. Nobody cared. 12-Oct-2019
Stay Alive (2006)
You lose respect as soon as they kill the best visual effect from the cast and after they break the rules they established. 30-Sep-2019
It's a post apocalyptic climate change resolution that speaks in a tongue that isn't closed captioned. 29-Sep-2019
Boys In Trees (2016)
Rekindling a bromance. There were so many elements that could have thrust the story forward but the director was so intent on a surprise ending that his magic tricks don't total rationality. It's underhanded. The film relies heavily on Toby Wallace, whose star endowment keeps it flowing and wrings the only emotion at end. 23-Sep-2019
The film never gives ma the purpose that would allow her to enact revenge sensibly or enjoyably. "Ma should have been the supplier of alcohol to teenagers that ended up driving and incapacitating someone she loved. Revenge ensues." Octavia exhibits instances in which exploitation of her gifts is considered but they are continuously squandered by horror cliches. Octavia smashing face with a twink is a creepy highlight. 20-Sep-2019
The boys look underaged but the girls don't. That's hilarious. 19-Sep-2019
My Little Eye (2002)
It's all vegan undernourishment until the end where the meat and potatoes are served. 15-Sep-2019
