Bio: My film rating scale: if it's over 80--it's a damned good movie; if it's between 80-70 it's either notably flawed or one of those 'different strokes for different folks' movies; if it's between 70-60 it's still enjoyable and/or has some artistic merit; if it's below 50 it's inexcusable, utter crap.

"First of all, if you need a hamfisted narrator to assure the audience that this movie is very anti-war and definitely does not want to glamorize anyone involved, then you probably don't have a good movie. Doesn't help that Pitt's Homer-Simpson-as-Tom-Waits persona is just grating. Yeah, there are glimmers here and there but the level of elitist self-righteousness kinda turns away even ideologically congruent viewers. The only thing worthwhile about this entire movie is Ben Kingsley as Karzai."

"There's only so much even an otherwise sterling director like McDonald can do with paper-thin material. Yeah, there's some decent gags here and there but the acting is real gnarly. "

"I hate how good this show is. After all, it's a show featuring anthropomorphized animals and somehow it gets at the messy center of real-world relationships, the cycle of trauma, the hurts of the world and how we deal with them. Perhaps filtering raw real-life experiences through a low-brow cartoon makes it easier to see how small and petty a person can be, the absurdity of our traumas & coping mechanisms, and how our outward faces are simply the faces of brightly colored cartoon animals.

"Just another conventional arthouse piece aimed at accumulating all the Academy's awards. Really though, it's what a grimdark eco-drama where everything is bland, gray, and terrible. Some oddities here and there that are either homages, tributes or nods at innovation, but otherwise it treads all-too familiar ground. Disappointing mostly because there were moments that were utterly transfixing. "
79 58% Logan (2017) - Jan 10, 2019
"This is exactly what you expect if you're familiar with the suite of X-Men movies: Patrick Stewart is a treasure, Jackman's acting lends Logan a gravitas that is unimpeachable, and the overarching social commentary about immigration and xenophobia are decently-illustrated though far from innovative. It's a movie that tends to go where you think it should go and that's fine. It's a fun, little distraction that never feels as long as its massive runtime. "
79 58% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) - Jan 09, 2019
"Fair bit of tension, well-orchestrated ambiance. But the script and acting make this feel like a SyFy channel original. If you want to go back to the horror basics, you gotta get the fundamentals. Otherwise, you're stuck with a half-baked idea and a shoddy execution. And maybe that was forgivable in the old days, when there was a certain kind of novelty to vampires, witches and zombies, but these days, if you don't care about the actors, it's hard to care about the movie.
