"The pathetic cast is a tipoff to how bad this could be. Danny McBride stunk it up almost as much as Walter Goggins. It is worthless, pointless and worst of all entirely unfunny. I was a bit sad to see Busy Philipps waste her time in this trainwreck."
|35 26%||The Dip Run (2018) - Jul 31, 2019
"Performances from the amateur actors were slightly humorous but mostly just annoying and tedious. The plot and dialog are stupid, ridiculous and awful. Not really worth watching unless you are truly starved for entertainment and don't mind all the stupidity."
|40 33%||Purity Falls (2019) - Jul 24, 2019
"A risqué movie with Made-For-TV graphics and dialog. Olivia d'Abo was good despite the badly flawed role. The story is implausible and greatly exaggerated. The writing is at times ludicrous at best but does offer a few good tense moments. The entire plot and most of the dialog is impossible to take seriously. Also, the music is the same awful Lifetime production quality as usual. The plot disintegrated into chaos at the end."
|60 57%||A Dark Place (2019) - Jul 24, 2019
"This is an unusual movie about a man who is mentally slow but who has a firm sense of right and wrong and a dedication to finding the truth. The subject was unpleasant, and it has an unusual main character. The movie is well made and delivers its message well. Worth watching."
|40 33%||Into the Ashes (2019) - Jul 23, 2019
"The highlights of this movie are several tense gun battles and lots of violence. The plot is very basic, offers nothing much clever and lacks creativity. The acting was reasonable. The filmography was good despite much of the story being told off-screen. The beautiful Marguerite Moreau was entirely underutilized in this."
|35 26%||Fast Color (2018) - Jul 22, 2019
"The plot has amazing magical powers but without a coherent or compelling story. Why is it that terrible writers and lack-luster directors keep getting opportunities to make boring uninspired movies. This movie mostly just plods along like a tired donkey? Some of the special effects were colorful but entirely pointless. Saved somewhat by an interesting lead actress but otherwise unfulfilling."
|75 75%||Sharp Objects (2018) - Jul 22, 2019
"Excellent cast and acting, especially from Amy Adams. For most of this Series the writers and director were dramatic hacks. I was not amused by the numerous pointless camera cuts and flash scenes. The end was telegraphed many times. The overall story was engaging, but too many details are just shameless and pointless misdirections. Many scenes served little to no purpose other than to frustrate the viewer. The ending was entirely out of character for everyone. "
|35 26%||We Belong Together (2018) - Jul 21, 2019
"The acting and performances were somewhat entertaining, but the writing was very poor and unfulfilling. This movie offers nothing new or interesting, and will easily be lost in a sea of mediocre made for TV movies."
|40 33%||Find Me (2018) - Jul 21, 2019
"I spent the first quarter waiting for something to happen. Once the traveling starts, there is some good scenery. When the action starts, it is mostly very slow and not very exciting. The amateur acting is mostly flat and unremarkable. Worth watching, but not particularly riveting. The surprise plot twist was telegraphed early on."
|35 26%||The Curse of La Llorona (2018) - Jul 18, 2019
"Many extra points for the performance of Linda Cardellini. However, the supernatural nonsense was on overdrive with this one. The plot is entirely ridiculous and tedious. Raymond Cruz had one of the worst roles of his career. Tony Amendola did well for having such a lame role."
