16 posts from 01 to 30 September 2018.

  • Any Day

    This started as one of those Christian themed scripts, but someone took a hatchet to it and turned into an abomination of epic proportions. Sinful, without pleasure.

  • First Blood

    Rambo is a PTSD-laden ‘Nam veteran, drifting over flyover country and getting mistreated by everyone he finds.

  • WarGames

    The only winning move is logic-bombing on HAL. Finally the long awaited sequel of The Breakfast Club where the cool girl doesn’t end up depressed.

  • Her

    An alternate future where the “AI” response to “Siri, cure my loneliness” is not “Searching for porn/one-night-stands”, but phone sex with a machine.

  • Ghostbusters II

    More of the same shit, only more so.

  • BlacKkKlansman

    Powerful stuff, particularly the post-credit Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally. 50 years go by in a flash.

  • The Host

    Twilight of the Body Snatchers. The Stephanie Meyer connection was only brought up later.

  • Ex Machina

    Another Garland high concept film. I really like the portrayal of the nutjob head of a tech giant, very Jobsian. Better than Antitrust.

  • Ghostbusters

    The 80’s equivalent to the Fleischer cartoons. A smörgåsbord of dated effects, product placement, smoking in inappropriate locations and sex jokes. You know … for kids!

  • Europa Report

    2001, a Blair Witch in Space.

  • A Fish called Wanda

    Jamie Lee Curtis honey traps 4 guys concurrently before their very eyes, and gets away with it! She falls for the one who finds her weak spot: sexual arousal when hearing spoken Russian.

  • Braveheart

    An Australian plays William Wallace, another Hollywood stunt casting choice. Robert Bruce is a minor character, but he was more important overall.

  • Jorge

    Standard “drugs are bad” flick. Despite being about heroin addiction, everybody is happy, and after a brief “Kum ba yah” all is good.

  • Videovigilância

    An ultra depressing film about lowlife Blockbuster Clerks / drug dealers that bite more than they can chew and get their lives kicked down a notch.

  • Malapata

    A demo reel for Hot Jesus. A box ticking enterprise. Not even worth it to finish the

  • Love & Other Drugs

    Boner pill commercials masquerading as the Boogie Nights of romantic comedies.
