Turning Red (2022)
Child's emotions are awakened when she experiences Leak Week. A family curse has her turning into a fuzzy red panda that transforms her life and liberates her loins. She's becoming a woman. The family wants to keep the hairy beast on the downlow but children can't be remote controlled. The child keeps it padded with the support of friends and the hope to attend a concert of sex gods (a boy band.) The film is fresh, the music is sprite and the art is gorgeous. 20-Mar-2022
West Side Story (2021)
The conception in Spielberg's imagination is fully realized when it opens. As soon as other elements take control the vision becomes duller. Ariana DeBose would have reached untouchable had she toned it. She was an anxious cheerleader. The musical score needed a lot more oomph. The original soundtrack had the voices echoing in the streets because they were the only voices in the street. The music has been prettified and unchallenged. Ansel Elgort is miscast as "anyone" because he doesn't look like he feels anything. I love Rita and she deserves to be in it. As soon as Spielberg settles into magic a bad accent with no hunger ruins it. The gymnasium edit had me taking deep breadths of joy but somebody decided to cut offline which killed the rhythm and choked the climax. Spielberg is a phenomenon whose films do best when everyone can realize his vision. Very few on this film could. 02-Mar-2022
Thing, The (2011)
The prequel follows Carpenter's roadmap to the letter. It doesn't interrupt and it doesn't reinvent. Its purpose is to continue. The difference it serves is a stunning CGI monster that places the film in the sci-fi horror fun club. 29-Oct-2020
