"Everything from the shot composition to the narrative structure to the character dialog and pacing is just dumb and indulgent. I dislike just about every aesthetic choice aside from the beautiful lighting and clearly mixed dialog."

|10 1%||High Plains Drifter (1973) - Feb 25, 2019
"A mysterious drifter rides into town, and a surreal sequence plays out. He can kill, rape, control everyone and everything with impunity, even destroy everything and everyone without consequence. It gets a few points for trying to do something smart, novel and stylized, but it fails in execution. The plot has too many holes to be taken seriously. It achieves nothing particularly worthwhile. It's just comes off as gross, despicable and pretty sad considering what it could have been."

"the perfect film to watch on a long plane flight when you just want to waste time and possibly fall asleep."
|69 65%||English Vinglish (2012) - Sep 02, 2018
"If you can get through/ignore the groan worthy music scenes there is an emotionally honest story, very well acted, with plenty of interesting turns and great characters. The culmination leaves you both satisfied and bothered, making it stay with you longer. The verisimilitude is a bit lacking, but this is a story about emotions and that's fine. Get your mom to watch it too."

"Pretty meh overall, but has a really killer reveal!"

"The period dressing, locations and visuals are outstanding. The characters are fun, the conceit is great. The staging is fun in spots yet inconsistent. The acting is poor in spots. The first 30 mins of the film should have been reshot. The story arc of Cheech is unconvincing, ironic as he rewrites the play to give it's characters more convincing motivations. The Allen neurotic/frenetic aesthetic displaced what could have been more genuine comedic sequences. "

"Ava Gardner drops an acting nuke on the screen, amazing performance."
