"One of those rare gems that faithfully capture a unique time and place and subculture for posterity. Seidelman caricatures just the right moments for humor, but otherwise the script is truthful and raw. Wren is a great character because her portrayal is thoroughly unflattering from beginning to end, but she still manages to squeeze sympathy out of the viewer in the end."
83 93% Quiz Show (1994) - May 26, 2023
"Fantastic. The script is genuine, clever, funny and moving, and the cast (led by Morrow, Turturro and Fiennes) is sublime. Redford's best movie as a director?"
63 60% The Eternal Daughter (2022) - May 23, 2023
"A tour de force from Swinton, and the movie is good, but not as good as Hogg's previous films. There's something distracting about the mystery format, and in retrospect I felt that I wasn't paying attention to the right things."
43 31% The Covenant (2023) - May 17, 2023
"Very old-school action movie script, so, heroics-filled nonsense with an absolutely ridiculous body-count of extras. It didn't help that I dislike Jake Gyllenhaal either. Guy Ritchie is a skilled director which makes this sort of watchable, but in the end the stupidity is pretty mind-boggling."
10 5% The Pope's Exorcist (2023) - May 11, 2023
"Completely and utterly shameless in its unoriginality, it's as middle-of-the-road as a movie with exorcism in its title ever gets. Worse yet, the dialogue is simply horrendous. Russell Crowe, who flourishes when he gets a good script, trips over this one and falls flat on his face."
2% Renfield (2023) - May 08, 2023
"Unwatchably horrendous."
10 5% Evil Dead Rise (2023) - May 05, 2023
"Excruciatingly crappy run-of-the-mill supernatural gorefest for kids. Nobody's behavior makes sense, and the action is way too dull and contrived to have any effect. The mother looks like the kid from "Smile" (not only in the movie poster). It's at its most obnoxious when it suddenly remembers its namesake and tries to replicate 1980s Evil Dead special effects or Sam Raimi camera tricks."
10 5% Cocaine Bear (2023) - Apr 28, 2023
"This isn't just bad, it's un-bearable."
25 12% John Wick: Chapter 4 (2023) - Apr 25, 2023
"More pretty, if hardly realistic, fighting choreography, and nothing else. Donnie Yen is always a great screen presence - it's a crying shame they've never cast him in anything genuinely good since his first starring role in "Iron Monkey"."
35 19% The Outwaters (2022) - Apr 10, 2023
"The filmmaker milks the abstract dread thing for all it's got, the cast voice-acts its ass off, and the sound effects person deserves a medal for the effort, but there's only so much jittery flashlight-in-the-dark you can watch before getting annoyed. The found-footage premise covering for a shoestring budget is long dead. Nobody would film themselves blood-soaked and scared mindless, certainly not for what seems like days and nights with the batteries in their devices never running out."
