"Passable predictable fluff."

"Forgotten Wilder was a hit in its day when he, along with Feldman, Kahn and Deluise, was at the peak of his powers, riding high on Saddles and Frankenstein. Teaming up with Feldman and Kahn again was clearly the right move, and it's their natural chemistry that makes viewers sympathetic to the obvious deficiencies in writing and directing. Wilder's script plays like a first draft, and his timing of gags is widely uneven. Worth a look for fans who aren't expecting prime Brooks level fare."

"A self conscious throwback to old school farces based on rapid fire dialogue and frenetic pacing that is essentially an updated version of A Night at the Opera via Zucker and Brooks. It doesn't entirely work---the gags are hit and miss and often lack wit, and Dugan was not experienced enough to control comic chaos--but the performances have spirit, and Turturro is frequently amusing to watch as a hyper-caffeinated cartoon version of Groucho. "
|40 7%||Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) - Apr 03, 2021
"Loud, long and dull. 90 minutes of pure tedium before the faux epic showdown that basically plays like a poor man's Pacific Rim. Score is probably generous."
|45 14%||The Last Blockbuster (2020) - Mar 31, 2021
"Nostalgia for a corporation that killed small traders and limited film choice/selection, contributing to the widening of the cultural void. Lloyd Kaufman, who hates Blockbuster, is the 'celebrity' highlight, and some interesting points were made about the aesthetic influence of the logo and store design on consumers, although they were not sufficiently explored. The woman in charge of the 'last Blockbuster' is likeable enough, but this 'documentary' fails to critically engage with its subject."
