The Curse of La Llorona

Do you know where your children are? As parents, we tell our kids all kinds of lies to get them to behave. Right now, you are thinking of Santa Claus. Jolly old St. Nick is mostly a harmless lie, unless you subscribe to evil versions of Santa like Krampus or Tim Allen. Be good and […]

Pet Sematary (2019)

Pet Sematary is one of Stephen King’s most popular horror novels that has been adapted for the movie screen 3 times now. The original 1989 Pet Sematary was most famous for that insane grey cat, the cute little kid getting smashed to smithereens by a semi, and for Fred Gwynne as Jud. It was a […]

Shazam!

Tag. You’re it! If ever a movie was being given a massive pass for not being the next putrid entry in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Shazam! is it. Currently, it sits at 93% positive critics ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, which ties it for best in the franchise with Wonder Woman. In no universe, including […]

Storm Boy

No, seriously. When I read the title Storm Boy, all I can hear in my head is Phoebe from Friends, saying “Flame Boy” and it makes it really hard to take Storm Boy seriously. And it should be taken seriously. It’s about a boy and his pelican. *giggles* In fact, it’s about a boy and […]

The Highwaymen (2019) Netflix Streaming

Arthur Penn’s 1967 version of Bonnie and Clyde featured the gorgeous, but ruthless killers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. With Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, you had one of the the hottest tandem of sexy couples since Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Bonnie and Clyde was a groundbreaking blockbuster because of its shocking violence […]

The Aftermath

Of everything. Prior to screening The Aftermath, I was looking for a quick synopsis of the film because I knew nothing about it.  The first thing that popped up in the Google search was a review for The Aftermath subtitled “The Aftermath is the cinematic equivalent of crying after sex.”  This nearly made me spit-take […]

Us

My lips are mostly sealed. I often struggle in these reviews with how much to reveal when discussing a movie.  Okay, I sometimes struggle.  On one hand, nobody likes spoilers.  Even for movies that are obvious and preordained crap, people want to be surprised and decide for themselves.  Incidentally, these are the same people who have to touch the […]

Ruthless and The Oscars: 2019 Version

Yes, I know, it is hard to imagine that it is Academy Award season again. Due to plummeting ratings, I don’t know what the Academy has in store for us this year. Maybe another Jet Ski, who knows? It is no secret that none of us here at Ruthless were thrilled with the 2018 stable […]

My Year in Reviews – 2018 Edition

Resistance is futile. Is it just me or does 2018 feel like it has lasted about a hundred years?  Between hurricanes, forest fires, racists, sexual harassers, gun massacres, and the systematic destruction of reason, decency, and ethical governing by the elephant party and the worst president this country has ever seen, I’m surprised aliens haven’t […]

Midnight Cowboy

MIDNIGHT COWBOY MOVIE REVIEW Movies have been often characterized as innovative, ground-breaking, trend-setting or wildly original, and these terms can be overused, but I cannot emphasize enough what a bold and courageous experiment in cinema was Midnight Cowboy. It is hard to comprehend that it has been 50 years since this Oscar-winning film was released, […]

Why has Nobody Made a Game of Thrones Open World RPG Yet?

With HBO’s epic medieval fantasy Game of Thrones now in its final season, dedicated fans are already getting worried about the withdrawals they’re going to be dealing with when it comes to an end. This certainly won’t be the last we see of Westeros, as there are numerous spin-offs reportedly in the pipeline. But, just […]

Wonder Park

Only the best rides make you puke. Based on the previews, I was expecting Wonder Park to be much worse than it ended up being. I am probably cutting it some slack due to my man/nerd crush on John Oliver, but it exceeded my expectations. More importantly, it kept my son’s attention, which is really […]

Lords of Chaos

Fair Value of Lords of Chaos: $18.00. One of the best comedies I’ve seen in a while. A Spinal Tap for my generation, deadpan and wry. Is This Film Worth My Time? You’re either going to laugh, or you’re going to be very disturbed, at the antics of the Scandinavian misanthropes that populate this film. […]
