Dr. Seuss' The Grinch (2018)

Synopsis

This is The Grinch after decades of sensitivity training and cosmetic denistry

Director

Yarrow Cheney/Scott Mosier

Cast

Benedict Cumberbatch
Pharrell Williams
Cameron Seely
Kenan Thompson
Rashida Jones

How The Grinch Stole Christmas (1966) was a delightful 26 minute long Christmas Special that ranks near the very top for Christmas Movie excellence. Any remake of this masterpiece that is longer than 35 or 40 minutes is destined to run into trouble. It is inevitable that the 55+ minutes necessary to make a full-length […]

Director

David Lowery

Cast

Robert Redford

The Hole in the Wall Gang has been replaced by the Over the Hill Gang. Robert Redford, even at age 82, has lost none of his charm and appeal. The Old Man and the Gun is based on the true story of Forrest Tucker, who just could not stop robbing banks and then breaking out […]

The ABC’s Of Thanksgiving In America

America! Most Americans are shocked and enraged when they realize that the rest of the world does not celebrate their bloated holiday. Get over it. Black Friday Back in ancient times, the day after Thanksgiving was a quiet and friendly time. Most everyone was off work or out of school, so you slept in, you […]

Fahrenheit 11/9

Synopsis

A Horror Story the likes of which you cannot imagine

Director

Michael Moore

Cast

Michael Moore
Donald Trump
Bill Clinton
Hillary Clinton
Rick Snyder
Barack Obama

This will probably be a short review, and I’ve put off writing it. Last Tuesday I sat in a theater with 3 other people and watched what was one of the most depressing documentaries I have ever seen. The content of the film was only slightly more disturbing than the fact that almost no one […]

The ABC’s Of The Opioid Crisis

The ABC’s Of The Opioid Crisis Here at Ruthless, we are no strangers to drugs. We also realize that in The United States, there is a big problem with both prescription drug abuse, diversion of Rx drugs, and the use of illicit drugs. We know that as long as drugs are available or can be […]

Synopsis

The Pastor of a small, historical church slowly loses his sanity because of past ghosts and current events.

Director

Paul Schrader

Cast

Ethan Hawke
Samantha Ceyfried
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)

Film Title

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 […]

Batman Ninja (2018)

Synopsis

Batman hits a really new low.

Director

A feral monkey

Cast

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. […]

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 […]
