45 20% Phantom of the Opera (1943) - Jun 06, 2021
"there’s a love triangle, some goofy comedy, and Claude Rains as a violinist who ends up on the run after a vengeful murder, hiding out in the opera house—and everybody knows it. There is no mystery. There is no horror. There is no pathos."
76 70% Outrageous Fortune (1987) - Jun 06, 2021
"It never drags. It moves us from one setup to the next like a glutton for jokes. When it’s had its fill of one flavor, it immediately rushes to the next, with Midler and Long as our hosts the whole way through. They are SO DAMN GOOD together!! I even, desperately hoping, went to IMDB Collaborations to see if they did work together again. They didn’t. But at least I can rewatch this (my wife probably won’t)."
43 18% The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run (2020) - Jun 06, 2021
"Movie-hating wife: "They keep doing these dumb flashbacks to camp. Are they trying to sell some new show?" Me, after googling: "Well, shit." Me, reviewing this movie: Well. Shit."
60 38% Son of Dracula (1943) - Jun 06, 2021
"Son of Dracula sees the Universal Monster series cementing itself into programmer status. I'm continuing to enjoy myself, but we've moved from spooky, shadowy classics to exhilarating camp to films that conjures nostalgia to being a kid watching black and white horror films on PBS at 10pm. Son of Dracula: gateway drug."
36 13% The Invisible Man's Revenge (1944) - Jun 06, 2021
"The film has no idea what it wants to be. Griffin is murderous, duplicitous, mad and intense, yet has time for a comedic diversion to help his barfly buddy he just met to go win a match of darts down at the pub. Following that, Griffin turns visible for a spell, lording his ill-begotten wealth over his rivals until it's time to be invisible again for the climax (which involves ALOT of broken glass, curiously not a problem for the barefoot invisible man!)"
51 27% The Mummy's Ghost (1944) - Jun 06, 2021
"I'm burnt out on The Mummy by now, but if I saw this in isolation I'd probably dig it a little more. Ames looks sell the otherworldiness of the curse, Carradine is cool, AND it continues a new trend of downbeat endings! So it's not all bad. The last 8 minutes do have a looped sound effect of a little dog barking. For every good thing I find, I'm hit back with something annoying and bad."
40 15% House of Frankenstein (1944) - Jun 06, 2021
"Naming it after Frankenstein is especially desperate since the monster is barely in it (same for the actual building he was created in!) and he has zero character whatsoever in this. Glen Strange is hired to be a big savage brute and brings nothing else to the character. No sympathy, no pathos, just big lug knocking stuff over."
52 28% Mortal Kombat (2021) - Jun 06, 2021
"There are moments that excel, such as a huge CGI dragon kill and anytime Scorpion is fighting. Sub Zero is cool (Waka Waka) and the effects for his powers are great. Story is less fine. Motives are unclear, the film bogs itself down for the newbies to train and find their magic powers, and there's no thrill, no excitement, no triumph. Then they fight and while the film is tremendously gory in the best way"
49 23% The Spy Next Door (2010) - Jun 06, 2021
"Spy Next Door is light on action. When it does happen, it's well shot action slapstick with no one getting seriously harmed. My son loved, loved, loved it. Chan is charming enough to get you through The Spy Next Door. Without kids, there's no reason to watch it more than once, and even my boy probably won't be asking for this one again."
49 23% Home (2015) - Jun 06, 2021
"When you don't have any actual emotional beats because your plot is just a chase movie so you have to blast Rihanna songs at your audience for them to have even a twitch of feelings because Rihanna is your star and you're probably contractually obligated to play a Rihanna song every 8 minutes anyway. Whatever. It's loud, it's colorful, it's musical. I can't hate it. Even if I did sleep through an entire setpieces (whatever happened in Paris, right the hell out zzzzzzz)."
