"A fascinating and dated look at science fiction from the 1930s. It's art-deco style, philosophical script, and scope make Things to Come an interesting view in the 21st century."

|20 3%||The Take (1974) - Nov 12, 2019
"An awful, boring, slow, and confusing movie. Billy Dee Williams sounds like he is half asleep on screen and often looks like it as well. There is zero tension in the story and events unfold for no particular reason. It's not even entertaining as a bad film. There are too few deaths on screen and only one bad car explosion. "
|60 35%||Johnny Eager (1942) - Nov 10, 2019
"Pretty standard crime-drama. For most of the movie it's Johnny manipulating every until he gets what he wants. There is some minor character development in the first 30 minutes, but it doesn't build to anything. The second half is better than the first where the relationships start to strain and things start happening. In the last 20 minutes, the movie finally picks up and has some real tension and excitement accompanied by memorable shots."
|40 14%||Black Gunn (1972) - Nov 09, 2019
"Black Gunn falls into that unfortunate spot of not bad enough to be incompetently entertaining and not good enough to be engaging. It's slow with little amounts of action throughout. Lots of N-words and other slurs to indicate who the baddies are, and Gunn is the coolest, sexiest, and most successful black man to walk to the earth. Everyone wants to be him and everyone wants to be with him. It makes for a boring lead. it's firmly a blaxploitation film and its genre trappings give it some charm."

|65 44%||Women's Prison (1955) - Nov 04, 2019
"A very enjoyable and watchable women's prison noir. I'm not a huge fan of prison movies because all the shots look relatively the same due to taking place in a prison. However, Women's Prison has a strong cast, unique and distinct characters, and Amelia van Zandt plays an icy bitch of a warden. It clips along at a good pace and is all-around competent. "
|100 92%||The Lighthouse (2019) - Nov 03, 2019
"Easily the weirdest film I've seen in a theatre. This is a dense, complex, fantastic film with a lot going on, and I don't understand any of it. Beautifully shot, fantastically acted, the pacing is a little rigid in that you could tell when something strange was needed to keep the audience invested. I'm going to need to watch this again to figure out what hell I just saw."
