I get several requests every year from indie film makers, inviting me to screen and review their movies. Some of these, like The Road To The Well, are near masterpieces, but most are a total waste of time, being poorly made vanity projects. High On Heels is a well-made 45 minute documentary on a phenomena […]

The ABC’s Of The Ku Klux Klan And Their Updated Motivations

Image Credits This world of ours has seen too much hate being spread, and it is heart-wrenching that instead of making love, we chose to make war (Jason Derulo is extremely displeased!). When we all thought that the Civil War was finally over and that America would smoothly transition towards the Reconstruction Period, out came […]

Diary Of A Serial Killer-aka Rough Draft (1998)

Film Title

Diary Of A Serial Killer

Synopsis

Transvestites and serial killers

Director

Joshua Wallace

Cast

Gary Busey
Michael Madsen
Arnold Vosloo
Reno Wilson
Julia Campbell

Right from the opening frame of the 1998 straight-to-video thriller Diary of a Serial Killer (aka Rough Draft), it is obviously a cheesy affair. The score, with its heavy saxophone wailing and bombastic drum-machine track, feels more like something from the 80s than the late 90s, and the rest of the movie feels the same way. Our protagonist, […]

Director

S. Craig Zahler

Cast

Mel Gibson
Vince Vaughn
Tory Kittles
Michael Jai White
Don Johnson
Fred Melamed
Jennifer Carpenter
Laurie Holden

S. Craig Zahler has been accused, even by those who (rightly) praised his first two features, of harboring a reactionary worldview, and Dragged Across Concrete feels like his response to this criticism in much the same way that The House That Jack Built felt like Lars Von Trier’s response to critics who see his work […]

Donald Trump: The Arrogance Of Power And Lack of Accountability Edition

Congress has officially confirmed the Electoral College victory of Biden and Harris. To all the Trumpers, thugs, evangelicals, preachers and right-wing pundits, where is your God now?

My Year in Movies – 2020 Edition – Worst. Year. Ever

Here are some quotes that have not aged well, due to 2020 being a rotten asshole of a year. “Luckily, we haven’t gone so far down the rabbit hole that we all can’t sit in a theater and enjoy a film together.” “As usual, and despite the continued predictions that a fill-in-the-blank-enemy will force theaters […]

Kristen Skaal
Ken Jeong
Greg Bryk

One of my wife’s biggest movie pet peeves is when kids are smarter than adults. While some kids are most definitely smarter than some adults, this theme almost always goes way too far when asking you to suspend your disbelief. Home Alone, Rookie of the Year, The Goonies, Spy Kids, Holes, any of the Harry […]

Surprise Dinosaurs Can Make Any Movie Better

On the cult classic animated sitcom The Critic, one of the half-dozen or so fake movie clips recycled in the opening credits throughout the series depicts a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers-style black-and-white ballroom dancing scene suddenly interrupted by a full-color Tyrannosaurus Rex devouring the dancing couple. The show’s protagonist, Jay Sherman (voiced by Jon Lovitz), responds […]
