Bio: My reviews are a collection of the movies I have seen since 2005. The scores I give mean everything and nothing. Mostly nothing. Unfortunately, I don't have the ability to discern the difference between a '75' and '80', so I just pick numbers at random.
|80 T8||Misery (1990) - Sep 17, 2017
"Reiner directs this film somewhat plainly, but it really speaks to Bates' performance that this film still manages to be great. Caan is a superb foil for Bates."
|90 T10||Miami Connection (1988) - Sep 17, 2017
"A beautiful diamond in the rough. Deserves to be placed besides "The Room" in the pantheon of all-time great bad films."
|55 T4||Mother! (2017) - Sep 17, 2017
"I love the technical aspects of this film (love the use of close-ups and surround sound), and the first half where it feels like "Repulsion/Rosemary's Baby" is a very good film. However, the second half which comes in as an assault on your senses, featuring scenes that loudly proclaim "THIS IS A BIBLICAL ALLEGORY" were too much for me. Oh my god, I am complaining that Arnofosky, the man who brought us "Requiem", is not subtle. "
|50 T4||You've Got Mail (1998) - Sep 17, 2017
"Why oh why is this film two hours long? Sure, the two leads are likeable, and I like watching them on screen, but everything feels stretched out. This is also the perfect definition of a mediocre film. There's nothing in this that I hate, but there's nothing that I love (well, the casting is great). "
|90 T10||Marc Maron: Too Real (2017) - Sep 17, 2017
"Enjoyment of this special will depend on your enjoyment of Marc Maron. I am someone who NEVER (I have to be emphatic) skips over the first 10-15 minutes of the podcast. This special is pure Marc Maron distilled into an hour-long special. I love it, but I can totally understand why others would hate this."
|40 T3||It (1990) - Sep 10, 2017
"The first half of this film is great. Tim Curry as Pennywise absolutely destroys. Great performances from the children. However, the second half with the adults is boring. It just keeps going and going and going. Everyone that nostalgically remembers this film forgets about the second half."
|65 T5||It (2017) - Sep 09, 2017
"Maybe it was the popcorn that didn't sit well in my stomach, but I just could not get on board with this film. Look, I fully realize I have terrible opinions. I liked the "Stand By Me" moments of the film, where it was showing adolescent children discovering their sexuality in a world filled with terrible and weird adults. But then it also felt like a boring haunted house ride with CGI effects. "
|85 T9||Possession (1981) - Sep 09, 2017
"Oh look, a film I watched and never rated. Um, this is a pretty heavy film about divorce. Did you know? Isn't that one of the only things people know about this film? Man, with terrible revelations like that, who do I think I am?"
|55 T4||Little Evil (2017) - Sep 07, 2017
"There is a sweet story about the bonding between a stepfather and stepson, but it never really works as a horror comedy. "
|75 T7||9 to 5 (1980) - Sep 07, 2017
"Dolly Parton is a delight. "
