Film TitleGood Will Hunting
A young genius struggles with his past, his potential and his relationships.
DirectorGus Van Sant
Film TitleBullet Train
Five would-be assassins take a train ride
Brian Tyree Henry
“Bullet Train” – Come on ride the train. As I struggled to come up with a theme for my review of Bullet Train, I skimmed through other, early reviews for ideas. To my surprise, Bullet Train has divided other critics almost right down the middle (currently sitting at 53% positive on Rotten Tomatoes; 49 on […]
We can still see you Mr. Predator guy
“Prey” – We can still see you Mr. Predator guy. I don’t know who is clamoring for more Predator movies, let alone one that takes place in colonial America, but Prey is the latest installment in the Predator franchise. Clearly, neither does Twentieth Century Studios, as Prey is going directly to Hulu+. Do they really […]
2 hrs 10 minutes, Rated R for face ripping and misadventures with barb wire. Fair Value of Jordan Peele’s Nope: $16.00. This is a smart reinvention of the flying saucer movie that is mildly scary but well paced and entertaining, with enough commentary as to reward a second watching. The lonely valleys of the Southwest: […]
Film TitleDC League of Super Pets
The DCEU only wishes it could be like Super-Pets
DirectorJared Stern & Sam Levine
Now that my son is double-digits old, he’s within shouting distance of the point where he is no longer the target audience for movies like DC League of Super-Pets and I’m going to have to start writing my own reviews of these flicks. But, not yet. What I will say is Warner Brothers really needs […]
Film TitleA Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge
Ezra reviews the gayest horror movie ever. He clearly enjoyed this way too much.
Though my previous in-depth takes on movies such as Little Monsters, Beethoven, and Baby’s Day Out have provoked responses ranging from “imaginative,” to “a bit of a stretch,” to “outright pants-shitting lunacy,” there is not a movie buff worth their salt who disagrees that A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge is the […]
“Nope” – Yep. The meteoric rise of Jordan Peele in the film world brings to mind the same rise that M. Night Shyamalan experienced. While Shyamlan’s directorial debut (Wide Awake) was an absolute bomb, his next three films (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs) were widely acclaimed and box office successes. Plus, The Sixth Sense […]
A Fistful of Yen before Clint Eastwood
A bunch of other Nips that I am too lazy to spell
A tall dark stranger ambles into a rural japanese town…and proceeds to lop off forty arms, half a dozen legs, the occasional head and ALL ORGANIZED CRIME, in a matter of three days, thus is the seemingly straightforward but, in practice, delightfully tangled knot of betrayal and deceit in Akira Kurasawa’s masterpiece of samurai ass-whoopery […]
I think I’ll let the tagline do the talking: They call her Coffy and she’ll cream you!
What the hell are these crazy cats up to? Coffy’s eleven-year-old sister is in a juvenile rehab center trying to kick smack. It’s obviously time for our heroine to tackle LA’s growing drug problem by setting up a Neighborhood Watch, noting down any suspicious activity and passing on the information to those upstanding boys in […]
Film TitleThe Blob
A meteorite that survives Earth’s atmosphere reveals a nightmare of flesh-eating Jello.
DirectorIrvin S. Yeaworth
When I was just a young punk, there was a lot less to do and think about than there is now, and in retrospect, that was a very good thing. My life consisted of mostly going to school, going to church every Sunday morning, evening, Wednesday afternoon and the dreaded Prayer Meeting on Wednesday night. […]
