87 24% Venom (2018) - Aug 04, 2020
"Too fictional and unbelievable. Unlike the scifi movie Interstellar which is highly probable to happen, Venom is nothing but pure entertainment similar to superhero movies of the Marvel comics genre. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
95 68% The Big Short (2015) - Aug 04, 2020
"Finance isn't a very interesting topic for many, yet this film made it so and much more. I was surprised I was hooked to it till the end when the conversations were all beyond my comfort zone. Perhaps because it gave a human face to the ins and outs of financial transactions, including the human frailties and avarice when it comes to money. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
97 90% Big Fish (2003) - Aug 04, 2020
"It started like any normal family conversation, then the story begins to blossom like a beautiful flower that shows various shades of hues and fragrances all pleasant to the senses. Though some episodes border in fairy tale, the movie retains its power to make you smile and cry as you ponder your own journey in life. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
94 57% Gods and Monsters (1998) - Aug 04, 2020
"The acting of the cast alone already raised the bar of this movie to realistic standards. Add to it the vibrant portrayal of personality aberrations unique to each actor completed the human drama that made the story gripping and fascinating. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
90 35% Midsommar (2019) - Aug 04, 2020
"Chilling and disgusting, the slow unfolding of cold-blooded terror can make you puke. But the entire plot held itself till the end in an artistic way that one wonders if the cult and its rites were indeed historical. I salute Sweden's tourism office for not raising a howl that it was portrayed in a gruesome way in the movie, knowing well, for sure, that it was only a work of fiction. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
80 11% The Wicker Man (1973) - Jul 17, 2020
"The story has some good points, but the entire flick is too old for modern times. It's better relegated to TV to pass insomiacs' time. Talking of old, not every old movie would be dumped for TV though. "The Thing", for instance, still sends shivers to modern viewers and its theme is timeless. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
95 68% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) - Jul 17, 2020
"The setting and story are so natural and very probable to happen-- if ever spirits and spells do thrive. The entire plot is absorbing, thrilling, and put me on my chair's edge. With a few cast involved, the movie succeeded in creating a full modern-day horror film that haunts me for days. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
10 1% The Evil Dead (1981) - Jul 17, 2020
"If you want a good laugh, see this movie. I wonder why so many people & reviews recommended this movie. It's filled with stupid scenes: 1- The first lady victim went out of the cabin at night to the unfamiliar forest. That's highly stupid & unnatural. 2- The last man standing seems unnerved by the unusual events & acted normally when talking to his pals. 3- The possessed moved like puppets, etc. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
97 90% A Room with a View (1985) - Jun 04, 2020
"Lovely indeed! The romance is neither lewd nor harsh, but natural and affectionate. Pepper it with the picturesque settings and superb acting and you end up smiling with blissful satisfaction. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
87 24% Tootsie (1982) - Jun 04, 2020
"I love movies that capture my interest in the opening salvo. This didn't. I waited for more minutes. Still it failed. I simply kept on watching because I heard some good reviews of it. Else, I could have flipped over and snored. The movie only came to life when the man became the woman Tootsie. But much time was already lost. Nonetheless, the rest of the film redeems itself. MY SCORING: 99-96=Great; 95-90=Very good; 89-85=Good; 84-80=So-so; 79-70=Boring; Below 70=Forget it"
