The Fanatic (2019) – Movie Review

August 29, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Full disclosure: I am the parent of a special needs child, so I view these kinds of movies with a little more of a critical eye than most. I hope you understand. Welcome to my second unstarred review, where a film does good work amid tremendous problems. It’s in a place where a middling rating […]

Burn (2019) – Review

August 22, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

There are several irregular elements which set Mike Gan’s Burn apart from your typical bottle-episode thriller, and special consideration must be given for them. We have the self-harming misfit, an inverted sexual assault, a female anti-hero, and a robber with neither a heart of gold or murderous intent. It’s an embarrassment of riches resulting in decent […]

Driven (2019) – Review

August 22, 2019 / 0 Comments

Everybody alive in the 1980s remembers the splashy impact of John DeLorean’s infamous stainless steel car in pop culture. From being regarded as a joke due to constant breakdowns to being given new life as the hero car of 1985’s Back to the Future, the DMC DeLorean has earned a dubious place in modern American history. […]

Gwen (2019) – Review

August 16, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Where does the horror lie in William McGregor’s Gwen? Is it in its simplicity? Does it have to do with his short film Who’s Afraid of the Water Sprite (click to view) which has lent its folk tale spirit to this, McGregor’s first feature-length film? Is it supernatural or the corporeal? Mental or physical? Gwen […]

Good Boys (2019) – Review

August 15, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

I’m not going to lie: Good Boys was right up my alley. Vulgar, brash, sweet, and completely insane, Good Boys doesn’t let up on the funny for one second, ensuring laughs from the end of the opening logos to the beginning of the closing credits. (There are no post-credits sequences, so you can immediately go […]

Blinded by the Light (2019) – Review

August 14, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

It’s a tough thing trying to find your voice. From first babbles as an infant, to the raging teenage struggle to be heard, to further shouts into the eternal void, establishing one’s own identity through any kind of expression begets a lot of pain and angst. Mostly toward the people you wish would listen to […]

Them That Follow (2019) – Review

August 9, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

On first viewing, Them That Follow reads like a character study of a closed-off religious sect somewhere in the Appalachian mountains. Conflicts are dealt with in-house, no one goes for formal medical treatment, and worship is held in a barn-like structure. Also, writers/directors Britt Poulton and Dan Madison Savage have chosen to focus on a […]

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019)

August 8, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Author Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books have been terrifying children since 1981 with macabre tales accompanied by unforgettable, eerie illustrations by Stephen Gammell. In truth, one of these illustrations – specifically, the one included in the first book’s story “The Haunted House” – still shakes me interminably; I cannot look […]

David Crosby: Remember My Name – Movie Review

August 2, 2019 / 0 Comments
Posted in

Just after the opening credits and an introductory bit of interview, David Crosby is seen leaving for his tour. As his car slowly pulls out of his driveway, the angle switches from a rising crane shot to an overhead drone/helicopter shot. His chauffeured black Cadillac SUV rolls from left to right with the camera following, eventually […]

A Score to Settle (2019) – Movie Review

July 31, 2019 / 2 Comments
Posted in

Some days, you know you’re watching a good movie; other days, it becomes obvious very quickly that you’re not. Every now and again, you find yourself incapable of deciding. A Score to Settle lands smack dab in this nebulous area, anchored by a mature performance by Nicolas Cage but surrounded by adornments which don’t match […]
