Space Station 76 (2014)
I watched expecting to find any reason to turn it off. It didn't feel like comedy but the players were so adamant on cultivating their characters that it gets downplayed as a natural part of life. They live in space, sometimes alone and sometimes with family. Some have seen earth, others have not.
Highlights of the future:
We still have to roll it, light it and smoke it ourselves
The robots seem like leftovers from the NINTENDO R.O.B. collection
The future has picked the 60s as their futuristic style
The tech must have been collected from PeeWee's Playhouse
There is only one child in the colony and it plagues her with panic. Her mother wants to deny her joy. Her pets keep dying because mommy hamsters have a tendency to bite their babies' heads off. Is it because she feels they don't have the skills to survive? That's how mommy explained it. Liv Tyler is the newbie getting accustomed to living with strangers and doing her best not to let anyone down. Her boss (Patrick Wilson) is hyper, mentally unravelled and suicidal because he can't stop jerking off to the Grinch. That was funny. Matt Bomer is married to lonely child's mother. She loathes the newbie because she has gained her daughter's affection and she likes her man. Bomer does a "pretty" acceptable job of being man trash.
A story about space that has nothing to do with nerdy technical explanations. I liked that. 13-Dec-2020
Hillbilly Elegy (2020)
I don't understand the hostility towards this film. There are no empowered women in silly spandex and undernourished hair. The women are environmentally flawed, drug infused and violence related. They were "most likely" that became nothing. There's hope in baby boy. Grand and mom try very hard to instigate the good they found for baby boy to move further but their problems keep pushing him out of the success loop. This is Ron Howard's most personal work and I commend him for not being a clone of something better. It's his home. Babies get whooped, women make bad choices and life goes on. Frieda Pinto fails to have chemistry with people and phones. Loosen up, girl. Pretty doesn't last forever. Amy Adams could shit on my doorstep and it wouldn't make me insult her talent. She has so much of it. I believe she captured the character Ron had in mind but Ron didn't strip enough from it. Glenn Close is not the caricature we expect because the actress is brighter than her character. Ron is a copyist. Sometimes a great one. He digs deep to make this one his own. He needed to tighten some things but none of them involved "Jane" hairdos, women in capes or military boots. 25-Nov-2020
Bad Hair (2020)
Girl gives in to the establishment of success and gets a weave. The essence of the owner lives in the hair and it has a thirst for blood. The film is campily set and perfectly cast, utilizing every 80s fashion tragedy to funny effect. Vanessa Williams arrives to chew scenery and she eats divinely. Elle Lorraine is the joke, the punchline and the effect. The knitting of the weave was excruciating and the hair sucking the blood flow from a dripping vagina was handy. 31-Oct-2020
Other, The (1972)
How does a child born to experience early death cope with it? He is half of a thing that has bested him for eternity, a friend social media would fear and the fault that destroys all that's good in his life. They call themselves twins. The psychology is detailed, the children are nastily disturbing, the family's oblivion is exhausting but the origins of a maniac cracks. That a child can come up with such brilliant kills is horrendous. 02-Oct-2020
