Synopsis

SuperBoy turns bad and people die

Director

David Yarovesky

Cast

Elizabeth Banks
Jackson A. Dunn
Jennifer Holland
David Denman
Matt Jones
Gregory Alan Williams
Emmie Hunter
Meredith Hagner

I have been reading with utter disbelief some of the glowing reviews by IMDB users for the movie Brightburn. This sci-fi, Superman, horror, Omen tear-off is one of the lamest, most pointless attempts at a horror (or whatever it thought it was) film that I have ever watched. The review will most likely be mercifully […]

Cube (1997)

Film Title

Cube (1997)

Synopsis

Several humans are trapped in a deadly metallic cube maze. They must use all their resources to survive and escape. Will they?

Director

Vincenzo Natali

Cast

Nicole de Boer
Nicky Guadagni
David Hewlett
Andrew Miller
Julian Richings
Wayne Robson
Maurice Dean Went

Cube is a movie that you can characterize as unique with complete confidence. I watched it on a whim, after numbing my brain with the non-stop and very one-sided killing in John Wick 3. I needed a movie to un-lock my brain from all that violence, so I chose Cube. Bad choice, as I traded […]

Cast

Jason Clarke
John Lithgow
Amy Seimetz
Jete' Laurence
Obssa Ahmed

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 […]

Two retired Texas Rangers are commissioned to retire the murderous Bonnie & Clyde

Director

John Lee Hancock

Cast

Kevin Costner
Woody Harrelson
Kathy Bates
John Carrol Lynch
Kim Dickens
Emily Brobst
Edward Bossert

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 […]

Nobody’s Fool (1994)

Film Title

Nobody's Fool (1994)

Synopsis

Paul Newman is magnificent as a stubborn man who must come to grips with his past



Cast

Paul Newman
Jessica Tandy
Josef Sommer
Bruce Willis
Melanie Griffith
Dylan Walsh
Pruitt Taylor Vince
Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Gene Saks

It is no secret that Paul Newman was a god of acting, in rarefied air with those such as Peter O’Toole, Jack Nicholson, George C. Scott, Jack Lemmon and Daniel Day Lewis. Newman’s resume is almost without peer, but combined with the rest of the stellar cast, this movie was a total joy to watch […]

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 […]

Synopsis

A family robbery with no victims goes horribly wrong

Director

Sidney Lumet

Cast

Phillip Seymour Hoffman
Ethan Hawke
Albert Finney
Marisa Tomei
Michael Shannon
Brian F. O'Bryne
Amy Ryan

There are movies that are familial train wrecks. There are movies like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf that are deaths by 10,000 cuts. However, I have never before seen such a devastating wreck as Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead, a masterpiece created by the 83 year-old genius director, Sydney Lumet. This movie was not […]

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Film Title

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Synopsis

A formerly successful writer uses her skills for deception when times get hard

Director

Marielle Heller

Cast

Melissa McCarthy
Richard E. Grant
Jane Curtain
Dolly Wells
Stephen Spinella

I think the first time I encountered Richard Grant was in the movie A Christmas Carol. Grant played faithfully the role of Bob Cratchit, who was the clerk for the miser Scrooge ( Patrick Stewart). There was no greater tour de force, however, than the role he shredded as I in Withnail & I. This […]

Roma: Netflix Streaming

Film Title

Roma

Synopsis

Short Mexicans have no reason to live

Director

Alfonso Cuaron

Cast

Yalizta Aparicio
Marina del Tariva
Diego Cotina Autrey
Carlos Peralta
Marco Graf
Nancy Garcia Garcia
Veronica Garcia
Hundreds of shitting dogs

I am hard-pressed to think of a movie that has received so much hype, so much critical acclaim, and so many awards before the Oscars. Roma is not your typical highly anticipated movie at all. Alfonso Cuaron’s latest work is completely unique, and there is no existing template with which to judge or compare this […]
