Yellow Rose: Worth Seeing

Alamo Drafthouse is back…sort of. They have social distancing protocols in place which lets you enjoy what makes them special yet it was rather weird, and a bummer. Jennifer really wanted to see this movie while I wanted to get … Continue reading

Onward: Streaming at best

One upside the Pandemic has given us was Disney moving this mediocre Pixar movie to Disney+ since movie theaters are shuttered indefinitely. I was glad because I saved money because Alamo isn’t cheap when anything doesn’t deliver. The first warning … Continue reading

The Invisible Man (2020): Worth Seeing

Another reason why I’m glad Universal’s Dark Universe (aka, “re-imagining” their monster properties) crashed harder than Windows CE. Their 1999 take on The Mummy was still good. It didn’t need Tom Cruise repeating his Mission: Impossible crap and then meeting Mr. Hyde to set … Continue reading

Knives Out: Must See

If this is Daniel Craig’s post-Bond career move, I am looking forward to the next installment by Writer-Director Rian Johnson. Benoit Blanc is part Foghorn Leghorn, part Clouseau encased in the dedication of Poirot. The short version of Knives is what … Continue reading

The Rise of Skywalker: Must see!

We’re finally out of Spoilers territory so I can blather my two cents. I also caught Rise at Alamo Drafthouse three times to make sure how I felt about it. First time during the special Thursday night screenings (due to my … Continue reading

Ford v. Ferrai: Worth Seeing

Hard to believe they made an American movie about auto racing that didn’t stoop to NASSCARR “Dads.” Thusly, I was actually interested in seeing it because Le Mans was the contest, a very historic track in France which isn’t an … Continue reading

Joker: Worth Seeing

I ran out of true Horror movies to review for this October but given how the last couple years have been a shit show under Orange Foolius, I think this interpretation fits the bill. In short, I liked it immensely … Continue reading

It Chapter Two: Worth Seeing

Horror movie number three for October, the conclusion to Stephen King’s rather long It which got updated. If you forgot, the original story took place in the Fifties and concludes in the Eighties. In this take, the first part was in … Continue reading

Child’s Play (2019): Disappointment

Horror movie number two for October and on schedule since Midsommar should’ve been written/posted before or during the weekend. I saw the original Child’s Play on cable while I was home from university (1989). I thought it was OK then because I … Continue reading

Midsommar: Acquired Taste

I can do this for October, review Horror Movies since I managed to see multiple flicks of this genre to highlight one each week, Midsommar is a little late. Holy Crap! This movie was probably the best Horror/Thriller I’ve seen … Continue reading

Once Upon a Time…: Overrated but Worth Seeing

Tarantino returns to the 20th Century with his love letter to the “golden days” of Hollywood as the inevitable Manson murders lurk around in the backdrop. The core story involves aging Western/Action movie star Rick Dalton and his stuntman caretaker … Continue reading

Booksmart: Worth seeing, actually funny

Two quick things about Booksmart, put aside the nonsense plug saying from the people behind the unfunny movies Superbad  or Sausage Party, this is actually good, clever and humorous. The other was how Olivia Wilde is a better director than actress. Admittedly, the … Continue reading

Spider-Man: Far From Home: Worth Seeing

After a huge event movie (Aftermath) bringing 11 years of story to a close, one would think the trivial adventures and personal life of Spider-Man would be a letdown. Not so, Kevin Feige brilliantly found a way to give the … Continue reading

Toy Story 4: Must See

The first nagging question I have had for the last few years with Pixar hasn’t been, “Does this really need a sequel?” It’s, “Which Pixar made this movie?” Will it be the one that knows how to tell a story … Continue reading

Brightburn: Worth Seeing!

An unusual combination of a Superhero origin story that transforms into a Horror movie. Not an easy feat but the people behind it succeed. Be warned, it did get pretty gruesome in how the victims meet their grisly fates. The … Continue reading

Us: Must See

Jordan Peele’s second Horror flick which had its world premiere at SXSW, translation, unless you were an asshole with a SCLM badge, you weren’t allowed to see it until it theaters. SXSW doesn’t concern me anyway, I just regret not … Continue reading

Hellboy (reboot): Don’t Bother

Another reboot stink burger from the morons who thought there was a way resurrect this property after two previous, unimpressive duds from a director who went on to do much better work I loved (Pacific Rim readily comes to mind). I … Continue reading
