50 15% Unfrosted (2024) - Rated 16 May 2024
"Bad, but in the modern realm of Hollywood comedy, it's slightly better than standard fare, and at least embraces pure silliness to an extended level. In the last 15 years American feature film writers have just totally forgotten how to do comedy. This particular film is a very odd pet-project of an over-indulged Seinfeld, but obviously Netflix will fund anything. He's been obsessed with pop tarts for some time. Almost, but not quite, as odd as his Bee film interpecies romcom."
0% Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (2019) - Rated 25 Apr 2024
"Thankfully these new films are *literally* not canon, as Lucas was totally frozen out of every aspect and his ideas for the the final trilogy ignored. All those fans who raged at the prequels and demanded Lucas retire - this is what you get, this is the obvious thing that you couldn't see was coming."
30 6% Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th (2000) - Rated 04 Apr 2024
"I think they actually made this before 'Scary Movie', even though it came out a bit later. Parodying a satire like Scream is just such a boneheaded idea though. I guess Scream really did go over a lot of people's heads."
70 37% Horror of Dracula (1958) - Rated 31 Mar 2024
"Dracula has never really works brilliantly as a film, but the production design is nice, Cushing is good but Lee may look the part but really isn't given much to do. But pretty average fair but probably one of the better straight Dracula films, if you must watch one."
58 18% Society (1989) - Rated 27 Mar 2024
"Doesn't pull off the high-minded thematic ideas it seems to be intending, I guess because its a crappy b-movie. I don't even know what elite satire was even intended, nothing makes any coherent sense. So that kind of ruins any credibility for the film. But the weird finale is surely noteworthy in Hollywood effect design history, so all credit for this film should go to Screaming Mad George for his great work."
90 96% Dune (1984) - Rated 20 Mar 2024
"Full of Lynchian mysticality, weird pulsing vibes and visual treats."
10 0% Poor Things (2023) - Rated 17 Mar 2024
"Apparently arthouse feminist films made and written by men are allowed to degrade, exploit and humiliate a woman (?) in the name of a muddy problematic moral message about sexual liberation(?). But of course, because "that's the entire point!". Shallower than a Sahara puddle. The film clearly enjoys and revels in gratuitous disgusting imagery which was disturbing, but also undermines the argument that it's a satirical crit. Style over substance in a film like this makes it a poor thing indeed."
20 2% Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014) - Rated 10 Mar 2024
"how did they even f up the red sea parting scene? they made it look like the tide had just naturally gone out a bit. There was no sense that anything supernatural had taken place at all, and no sense that Moses was responsible in any way. Yet then, suddenly, they do do the whole 'big wave' scene once Ramses turns up to get wiped out. Just an utter moronic mess."
73 48% Mothra vs. Godzilla (1964) - Rated 08 Feb 2024
"Godzilla in this is like a clumsy drunk - most of his initial destruction is oddly slapstick, he gets tail stuck in an antenna tower, then proceeds to trip and fall into Tokyo castle."
80 76% Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000) - Rated 25 Jan 2024
"Swing at the king you better not miss. And to be fair, Megaguiras doesn't, but the black hole firing satellite weapon launched into space orbiting Earth (???) does. Maybe. Twice. By the end it turns out Godzilla was b lining to destroy the Institute of Science the whole time. Enjoy the fun!"
