The Collini Case (2020) – Movie Review

June 5, 2020 / 0 Comments

There’s a brilliant magic to the quietly powerful courtroom drama The Collini Case (original German title: Der Fall Collini) in its storytelling. All of it stems from an elderly brooding man in police custody, Fabrizio Collini (Franco Nero) – shown in the prologue to have killed wealthy German industrialist Hans Meyer (Manfred Zapatka) – and […]

End of Sentence (2020) – Movie Review

Between John Hawkes’ timid mess of a father and Logan Lerman’s recently-imprisoned son, there’s a lot of awkward silence highlighting a world of difference. Frank Fogle, a man scared of his own shadow, and Sean, who won’t be cowed by anything, are about to embark on an intercontinental voyage which might prove blood is truly […]

The High Note (2020) – Movie Review

May 27, 2020 / 0 Comments

The High Note goes down as smooth as you’d expect, like a comforting mug of hot chocolate. It’s sweet, frothy, and relatively harmless, with little edge to cause any unease or sour aftertastes. With our stomachs full of similar male-fronted films, a female perspective – from both in front of and behind the camera – […]

Lucky Grandma (2020) – Movie Review

May 21, 2020 / 0 Comments

The (not pejoratively) dry, black-humored Lucky Grandma is quite a charmer, thanks largely to veteran actor Tsai Chin, whose illustrious career has spanned six decades. Once a Bond Girl in You Only Live Twice (and coming back for 2006’s Casino Royale, too!), Lucky Grandma brings her back to the action arena… sort of. Don’t be […]

Inheritance (2020) – Movie Review

Why do we, as a culture, indulge the self-important need to know so much about the wealthy and the powerful? Do we really respect them for “being just like us” when the trash behind their carefully-curated public image is revealed? Are we attracted to the money, the lifestyles, the cars, the houses, the glitz and […]

Hi, everyone! I hope this message finds you well and healthy. These last two months have given us little to be excited about, and for those of you who’ve lost friends and family (as I have), there’s a lot of heartache as well. Please be safe out there, but don’t forget to be kind. Michael […]

We Summon the Darkness (2020) – Movie Review

April 16, 2020 / 0 Comments

NOTE: This film lives and dies by its twists and surprises. In order to keep things enjoyable, I refuse to print spoilers for this one, so please forgive the vagueness. This is a first for me: a murdering Satanic cult movie! Of course, there’s way more to We Summon the Darkness than it being beholden […]

Behind You (2020) – Movie Review

April 16, 2020 / 0 Comments

Behind You is a curiously odd low budget experiment. This isn’t to say it’s a bad movie, so don’t take that the wrong way. On the contrary, writers/directors Andrew Mecham and Matthew Whedon have made an admirable and frightening sibling of James Wan’s The Conjuring, confining a family to a sprawling house and filling the movie […]

Trolls World Tour (2020) – Movie Review

April 11, 2020 / 0 Comments

To be honest, the overly-colorful, incessantly-happy world of Trolls wasn’t something I was looking forward to visiting again. My review of the first film went out unstarred – not to be taken as “zero stars” – because of how at odds the film was with its morals and methods, but the film itself was decidedly not bad. Its […]

James vs. His Future Self (2020) – Movie Review

Let’s get it right out of the way: yes, James vs. His Future Self is going to get compared to the 2012 Rian Johnson classic, Looper. There’s no two ways around it: both involve a man traveling to the past and battling his younger self in hopes of changing the future, but that’s where the […]
