Director

Paul Schrader

Cast

Ethan Hawke

Cedric The Entertainer
Michael Gaston
Victoria Hill
Van Hansis

First Reformed Throughout my long and unspectacular career with Ruthless, I have taken great glee in skewering and ridiculing religious-themed movies. Sometimes because they are so transparent and bad, like in The Case For Christ. Other times because they reveal the utter bankruptcy and cruelty of their associated superstitions (The Breadwinner). First Reformed is another […]

Truth or Dare (2018)

Synopsis

A really dumb movie based on a pretty neat drinking game

Director

Jeff Wadlow

Cast

Lucy Hale
Tyler Posey
Violett Beane
Sophia Ali
Nolan Gerad Funk
Landon Liboiron
Sam Lerner
Hayden Szeto

Truth or Dare (2018) O.K., I’ve about had it with Horror Movies. Sure, A Quiet Place was magnificent, but it was not really a horror movie, only a hybrid. Truth or Dare is a group parlor or drinking game that is supposed to be embarrassing, but funny. You have to tell the truth, no matter […]

The ABC’s of Rape: Bill Cosby Edition

Abortion-No way, woman. Raped by your father? Too bad, enjoy your little bundle of joy. Raped by a stranger, even a criminal with former rape convictions? Prepare to be forced to carry to term and even to give the criminal visitation rights. Even if your pregnancy is much more than an inconvenience, that is just […]

Synopsis

Batman hits a really new low.

Who Fucking Cares?

Batman Ninja (2018) Right. Even with the lowest of expectations, this film could not possibly appeal to even the most masturbation-induced brain damaged victims of whatever DC anime cult still exists. This attempt at a movie was so childish and horribly written and displayed that I don’t know who else it could possibly appeal to. […]

A Quiet Place

Synopsis

Director

John Krasinski

Cast

Emily Blunt
John Krasinski
Millicent Simmonds
Noah Jupe
Cade Woodward

A Quiet Place I just reviewed another horror movie, Winchester earlier this week. It was dreadful. This week’s movie was a horror/thriller orchestrated by John Krasinski, who also played a lead role alongside his real world wife Emily Blunt. Like I stated in another review, horror is not my movie genre of choice. If Get […]

Director

The Spierig Brothers

Cast

Helen Mirren
Sarah Snook
Jason Clarke
Tyler Coppin

Winchester (2018) is a movie that was based on the true story of the heiress to the enormous fortune of the Winchester Rifle Company. The great Helen Mirren plays Sarah Winchester who lived in an ever-expanding creepy mansion that she was convinced was haunted by the ghosts of the humans retired by her dead husband’s […]

Dollman (1991)

He’s only got 12 inches on Earth, but he knows how to use them.

Director

Albert Pyun

Cast

Tim Tomerson
Jackie Earl Haley
Frank Collision
Kamala Lopez
Nicholas Guest
Judd Omen
Vincent Klyn

I’ve been meaning to review this movie forever. Dollman was released in 1991, but if any movie begs to be reviewed in the 80’s action format, it is the totally ruthless and bad-assed Tim Thomerson as Brick Bardo in Dollman. I have this movie on Amazon and even have a VHS tape copy of this […]

Michael Caine
Odeya Rush
Katie Holmes
Seth Green
Jason Briggs
Who Cares

Tatiania Mills (Odeya Rush) will dislodge and eat ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum from beneath the water fountain to taunt and gross out her adversaries at school. Sir Michael Caine again does the equivalent to his career by starring in this mindless atrocity. Michael Caine plays a deposed British Caribbean Republic dictator who comes the […]

The gnomes must be saved, but why?

Director

John Stevenson

Cast

Emily Blunt
Johnny Depp
Chiwetel Ejiofor
James McAvoy
Mary J. Blige

O.K. I used to be wracked with guilt as I refused to watch or review animation and most comic book or superhero movies. I felt really bad since I browbeat Al (who no longer speaks to me) into actually spending his own money to watch and review The Emoji Movie. Since then, I have tried […]

Peter Rabbit (2018)

Synopsis

All cute little bunny rabbits need to die

Director

Will Gluck

Cast

James Cordon
Domhnall Gleeson
Sam Neill
Margot Robbie
Rose Byrne
Other random animal voices

Peter Rabbit (2018) Don’t ask me why I watched this. Perhaps a little dementia is creeping in to go along with my boredom and post oral surgery misery. I really don’t know why. The charming classic story of Peter Rabbit written by Beatrix Potter was the basis of this book. From the very get-go, there […]
