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.

"Stealing from other better movies, this is yet another "Eat the Rich"-branded horror flick. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this movie and the subgenre as a whole is the cheerful willingness of wealthy producers to sign million dollar checks to dunk on, uh, themselves? Ultimately, this is a social satire that provides no new insights but at the very least has a twisting plot that's hard to predict but also hard to care about. The ending should have been a fast food commercial."

"Hard to think of a more 80s movie. It's an utterly depraved clusterfuck that manages to avoid all the action/sci-fi until pretty much the very end. Legitimately a fun, nonsensical ride."
90 95% We're All Going to the World's Fair (2022) - Nov 01, 2022
"A muted picture that's so saturated with the authenticity of strange, anonymous corners of an early 2000s internet, that it manages to be heart-rending despite very little happening. It taps into that brief, liminal era on the edge of screen-ubiquity and a lonely, cold reality that the kids that were neither Gen X nor Millenials came of age in. But as was the case with the overwhelming majority of tales that began online, there was never any catharsis, just a lingering feeling of unease."

"Like an upscale Jordan Peele-styled woke-horror, it nevertheless descends into the same cliches it seems to be rebelling against. Just because there's rub-your-face-in-it social commentary--which, these days, if the social commentary is in horror, it always seems to amass nonstop plaudits from film critics--it doesn't, however, excuse a rushed, sloppy final act. The film has so much more potential than this: the amassing of generational evil, the heart of darkness in Reaganesque suburbia, etc."
76 41% Firestarter (2022) - Oct 25, 2022
"If you go into it with low expectations, you'll be pleasantly surprised. It's a King-typical yarn with some great set pieces. A bit like Dr. Sleep with a much smaller budget and less ambition."
75 37% The Duke (2021) - Oct 25, 2022
"Pretty throwaway, despite solid acting by all involved. It's just really not that interesting of a story--a fun factoid but not a feature length movie. It's like a stodgy answer to Wes Anderson. Reminscent or The Landscapers without the weird artsy experimentation."
