“Voodoo Passion” Review

Voodoo Passion: Directed by Jesús Franco. With Vicky Adams, Ada Tauler, Karine Gambier, Jack Taylor. Susan comes to Haiti to be with her husband. His naked sister asks her, if she’s ever made love to a woman. Susan dreams vividly of nudity, Voodoo rituals and killing. Otherwide known as “Call of the Blonde Goddess”, I was sucked in by this fantastic poster and the movie itself ended up being about what i thought it was going to be, with barely any clothing and a fair bit of weird white curiosity of a black religion with all the accouchements that comes...

“Something the Lord Made” Review

Something the Lord Made: Directed by Joseph Sargent. With Cliff McMullen, Yasiin Bey, Luray Cooper, Alan Rickman. A dramatization of the relationship between heart surgery pioneers Alfred Blalock and Vivien Thomas. Another entry in the “I saw a scene on TikTok that looked interesting, so I watched the whole movie” and it turns out that Alan Rickman and Mos Def were both great actors at the time this movie was made, it was well written, and didn’t present the men as unstoppable saviors of humanity, but instead as fallible people that had their ups and downs.

“Archive” Review

Archive: Directed by Gavin Rothery. With Theo James, Stacy Martin, Rhona Mitra, Peter Ferdinando. 2038: George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs. Feels low budget, but is much more clever than I initially thought with some well laid out foreshadowing that I noticed, but was bamboozeled into thinking was referring to something else. Also, the robots are all absolutely adorable and I wish I had one in my life. Sorta, they do...

“Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” Review

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire: Directed by Adam Wingard. With Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Dan Stevens, Kaylee Hottle. Two ancient titans, Godzilla and Kong, clash in an epic battle as humans unravel their intertwined origins and connection to Skull Island’s mysteries. A perfectly fine sequel to the previous “Godzilla Vs Kong”, this time it’s “Godzilla x Kong” which I just learned a few minutes ago is supposed to be pronounced “Godzilla Kong”, which of course is nonsense. Don’t put the letter in there if you don’t it spoken, right? Kong gets the king portion of screen time in...

“Immaculate” Review

Immaculate: Directed by Michael Mohan. With Sydney Sweeney, Álvaro Morte, Simona Tabasco, Benedetta Porcaroli. Cecilia, a woman of devout faith, is warmly welcomed to the picture-perfect Italian countryside where she is offered a new role at an illustrious convent. But it becomes clear to Cecilia that her new home harbors dark and horrifying secrets. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie that was a singular genre without any stray drifting into another, and this is nothing more than a straight horror film. No ironic jokes, no dramatic romances, no goofy side characters, nothing at all to distract from...

“Ricky Stanicky” Review

Ricky Stanicky: Directed by Peter Farrelly. With Riley Stiles, Oscar Wilson, Gaius Nolan, Brian Jarvis. When three childhood best friends pull a prank that goes wrong, they invent the imaginary Ricky Stanicky to get them out of trouble. Twenty years later, they still use the nonexistent Ricky as a handy alibi for their immature behavior. A fun movie with a ton of NSFW humor and all sorts of lessons to be learned about making the right type of friends and how you should really not talk to strange men that come up to you at the bar and offer calamari....

“Money Shot: The Pornhub Story” Review

Money Shot: The Pornhub Story: Directed by Suzanne Hillinger. With Noelle Perdue, Michael Stabile, Wolf Hudson, Siri Dahl. Follow the rise of the most famous adult entertainment platform and the recent backlash it has received. It’s a good look at the history of PH, but eventually devolves into some kind of weird expose on a religious organizations intense hatred for free speech, pornography of any kind, and the lengths they sunk to trying to take down a few websites that served up x-rated entertainment. I really wish it went more into the actual title subject and looked into the history...

“Blood Red Sky” Review

Blood Red Sky: Directed by Peter Thorwarth. With Peri Baumeister, Carl Anton Koch, Alexander Scheer, Kais Setti. A woman with a mysterious illness is forced into action when a group of terrorists attempt to hijack a transatlantic overnight flight. A mixed language film that’s in both German (I think?) and heavily accented English, so I would suggest having subtitles on for the entire thing, which obviously means you’ll need to be giving the film your full undevoted attention, which sadly it doesn’t quite actually deserve that level of attention. The special effects are darn good and the acting is from...

“Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” Review

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World: Directed by Lorene Scafaria. With Steve Carell, Keira Knightley, Adam Brody, Connie Britton. As an asteroid nears Earth, a man finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart. Accompanying him is a neighbor who inadvertently puts a wrench in his plan. An emotional and emotionally draining look at how people deal with the sudden and inevitable news that everything is going to end for pretty much everyone. Some people run from it, some people drug...

“Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” Review

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire: Directed by Gil Kenan. With Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace. When the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second ice age. A perfectly worth entry into the Ghostbusters franchise, I’m happy with how the small steps they’re taking seem to be building towards something larger, but all while making good smaller stories. This is something that Marvel use to do very well, but then they transitioned to focusing more on the meta story and...

“Road House” Review

Road House: Directed by Doug Liman. With Jake Gyllenhaal, Daniela Melchior, Conor McGregor, Billy Magnussen. Ex-UFC fighter Dalton takes a job as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse, only to discover that this paradise is not all it seems. The original “Road House” movie is a classic of pure machoism mixed in with small town corruption and this reimagining holds true to the basic premise, doing it justice in a modern setting. I found it entertaining and would suggest that it’s a great movie, except there was a creative decision to use some funny looking “impact” camera work during...

“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” Review

Ghostbusters: Afterlife: Directed by Jason Reitman. With Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace. When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. Watched again while doing some data entry in anticipation of seeing the latest and greatest addition to the franchise this weekend. Guess this is how respectful sequels with a soft reboot element are done. Buy On Amazon!

“Damsel” Review

Damsel: Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. With Millie Bobby Brown, Ray Winstone, Angela Bassett, Brooke Carter. A dutiful damsel agrees to marry a handsome prince, only to find the royal family has recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an ancient debt. A great example of a “girls get it done” style of movie that’s not telling you about how great women are, but instead shows you how great they can be, all without being performative or reducing the concept to a trope that’s so over repeated that it’s more of a meme than a useful story element in modern...

“Ghostbusters” Review

Ghostbusters: Directed by Paul Feig. With Zach Woods, Kristen Wiig, Ed Begley Jr., Charles Dance. Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat. Watched again while doing some data entry in anticipation of seeing the latest and greatest addition to the franchise this weekend. …this was the extended version of the film and it’s a much better version, but still doesn’t do justice to the franchise. I think the ladies never got a fair chance at doing their thing...

“The Matrix” Review

The Matrix: Directed by Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski. With Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving. When a beautiful stranger leads computer hacker Neo to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth–the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. AMC had it back in theaters for it’s 25th anniversary and I was completely stoked to finally get to see it in theaters, I was a poor college freshman when it came out the first time, and at the time it wasn’t exactly easy to see movie trailers without going to the movies or watching...

“Ghostbusters II” Review

Ghostbusters II: Directed by Ivan Reitman. With Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis. The discovery of a massive river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of spectral activity allows the staff of Ghostbusters to revive the business. Watched again while doing some data entry in anticipation of seeing the latest and greatest addition to the franchise this weekend. Buy On Amazon!

“Ghostbusters” Review

Ghostbusters: Directed by Ivan Reitman. With Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis. Three parapsychologists forced out of their university funding set up shop as a unique ghost removal service in New York City, attracting frightened yet skeptical customers. Watched again while doing some data entry in anticipation of seeing the latest and greatest addition to the franchise this weekend. Buy On Amazon!

“City Without Men” Review

City Without Men: Directed by Sidney Salkow. With Linda Darnell, Edgar Buchanan, Michael Duane, Sara Allgood. A young woman’s husband has been imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. In order to be near him to try to help him get his sentence overturned, she moves into a boardinghouse near the prison whose residents are the wives of inmates. Set 5 months before WW2 starts, a handsome harbor pilot is engaged to a beautiful school teacher, but in a horifying turn of events, he’s framed for bringing in Japanese spies from a strange boat off shore. e’s sentenced to prison...

“Love Lies Bleeding” Review

Love Lies Bleeding: Directed by Rose Glass. With Anna Baryshnikov, Kristen Stewart, Dave Franco, Katy O’Brian. Gym manager Lou falls for Jackie, a bodybuilder who is passing through town en route to a competition in Las Vegas. The trailer for this went hard as hell and Katy O’Brian’s muscles sealed the deal for me, I loved her performance in The Mandalorian. Added to that, this is an A24 release and while I’ve not seen anything by Director Rose Glass before, if A24 believes in her, I’ll definitely give her a chance. I’m happy I did because this movie is so...

“World’s Greatest Dad” Review

World’s Greatest Dad: Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. With Robin Williams, Daryl Sabara, Morgan Murphy, Naomi Glick. When his son’s body is found in a humiliating accident, a lonely high school teacher inadvertently attracts an overwhelming amount of community and media attention after covering up the truth with a phony suicide note. I’m still on my quest to watch all of Robin’s films and this one is a bit of a weird pickle with lots of truly hateful language from a unloving son, unfatherly behavior from an unloving father, and people all around them that are out for themselves, with the...

“Nimona” Review

Nimona: Directed by Nick Bruno, Troy Quane. With Chloë Grace Moretz, Riz Ahmed, Eugene Lee Yang, Frances Conroy. When a knight in a futuristic medieval world is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, the only one who can help him prove his innocence is Nimona — a mischievous teen who happens to be a shapeshifting creature he’s sworn to destroy. There’s talk that this was originally going to be a Disney release but that they allowed it be sold to Netflix to be released there. Idiot talking heads will have you believe this was because the main guy is...

“Dune: Part Two” Review

Dune: Part Two: Directed by Denis Villeneuve. With Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem. Paul Atreides unites with Chani and the Fremen while seeking revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. About as good as the first one, though this time around there are no big revelations, other than a couple casting decisions that I wasn’t aware of. To be honest I’ve been avoiding the trailers and the articles about the flick, as I was already sold on the first movie and knew I was going to go to the second one, so no need to spoil myself...

“Dune” Review

Dune: Directed by Denis Villeneuve. With Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa. A noble family becomes embroiled in a war for control over the galaxy’s most valuable asset while its heir becomes troubled by visions of a dark future. Watched again in preparation for seeing the second one in the theaters. It’s pretty darn good, but a shame they only did half the story. Buy On Amazon!

“Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows” Review

Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows: Directed by Paul Jay. With Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Brian Pillman, Blade Hart. Documentary focusing on the career of pro wrestler Bret Hart & his controversial exit from the WWF. I swear to god I’m not going to get into wrestling, but this was mentioned in a podcast I was listening to and was 100% better than the podcast itself was. Very informative and well made, peak wrestling entertainment. Buy On Amazon!

“Anna” Review

Anna: Directed by Luc Besson. With Sasha Luss, Helen Mirren, Luke Evans, Cillian Murphy. Beneath Anna Poliatova’s striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world’s most feared government assassins. I was directed to watch this by a member of the community, to whom I am now indebted to for introducing me to Sasha Luss. The story is familiar enough, but there’s enough of a fun wrinkle to the entire thing to make it feel fresh enough to make a well studied concept like “woman brought into a world of...

“Knights of the Zodiac” Review

Knights of the Zodiac: Directed by Tomasz Baginski. With Mackenyu, Famke Janssen, Madison Iseman, Diego Tinoco. When a goddess of war reincarnates in the body of a young girl, street orphan Seiya discovers that he is destined to protect her and save the world. But only if he can face his own past and become a Knight of the Zodiac. I think you can tell exactly what kind of movie this is just from the name and the poster, and it IS that film that you think it is, but it’s also much more. Just kidding, it’s just that film....

“The Marvels” Review

The Marvels: Directed by Nia DaCosta. With Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Samuel L. Jackson. Carol Danvers gets her powers entangled with those of Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau, forcing them to work together to save the universe. Watched after adding the Steelbook to my collection, which the decision and journey to get it is worth mentioning here. Best Buy is no longer selling movies, so they’re dead to me, and Wal-Mart of all places picked up the slack and now apparently they’re the “exclusive” Steelbook retailer, so I guess the Walton family will be getting more of my...

“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” Review

Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Created by Donald Glover, Francesca Sloane. With Donald Glover, Maya Erskine, Paul Dano, Parker Posey. Two strangers land jobs with a spy agency that offers them a life of espionage, wealth, and travel. The catch: new identities in an arranged marriage. Sharing similar concepts to the two other movies and television series by the same name, this version works best when it’s doing it’s own thing instead of doing what’s been done before. The sound track, action, acting, and character developments are all top notch, but there’s times towards the end of season one that it...

“Madame Web” Review

Madame Web: Directed by S.J. Clarkson. With Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced, Celeste O’Connor. Cassandra Webb is a New York metropolis paramedic who begins to demonstrate signs of clairvoyance. Forced to challenge revelations about her past, she needs to safeguard three young women from a deadly adversary who wants them destroyed. With a story set in 2003, I would actually believe you if you told me that the movie itself was made in 2003, maybe even if you said it was made for TV. It’s not a terrible film, but it’s also not a great one, with a story...

“Drive-Away Dolls” Review

Drive-Away Dolls: Directed by Ethan Coen. With Margaret Qualley, Geraldine Viswanathan, Beanie Feldstein, Joey Slotnick. Jamie regrets her breakup with her girlfriend, while Marian needs to relax. In search of a fresh start, they embark on an unexpected road trip to Tallahassee. Things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals. The only reason that I saw this in the theater was because my hometown plays a large part of the narrative, but unfortunately it was in name only and didn’t have a single scene in the actual city and in fact features a few...

“Argylle” Review

Argylle: Directed by Matthew Vaughn. With Henry Cavill, Daniel Singh, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose. A reclusive author who writes espionage novels about a secret agent and a global spy syndicate realizes the plot of the new book she’s writing starts to mirror real-world events, in real time. Directed by Matthew Vaughn, who’s well known for his Kick-Ass / Kingsman series of movies and comic books, this movie will feel familiar with fans of those franchises, as he’s refined his standard camera technical abilities, overly long action scenes, and overly complicated plots to a point that ‘s a fine meal that...

“Ted 2” Review

Ted 2: Directed by Seth MacFarlane. With Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Barth. Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he’s a person in a court of law. The second film is too close to the plot of the first time, with the same character looking for love, the same character acting as the evil interest, and the same loveably disgusting fluffy teddy bear making more of the same hilarious jokes. It’s still a funny movie and it’s still enjoyable, but...

“Your Place or Mine” Review

Your Place or Mine: Directed by Aline Brosh McKenna. With Reese Witherspoon, Ashton Kutcher, Zoë Chao, Jesse Williams. Two long-distance best friends change each other’s lives when she decides to pursue a lifelong dream and he volunteers to keep an eye on her teenage son. A traditional romantic comedy that has little to offer in the way of surprises or unique elements, but delivers on the promise of two characters being apart both physically and emotionally at the beginning of the story and coming together by the end of the film. It’s sweet and sappy in all the ways you’d...

0

“Iron Man” Review

Iron Man: Directed by Jon Favreau. With Robert Downey Jr., Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow. After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil. Watched it again due to TikTok bandwagoning, it’s still a great film with some great lines and it’s the birth of of something really beautiful. Buy On Amazon!

“I.S.S.” Review

I.S.S.: Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite. With Ariana DeBose, Chris Messina, John Gallagher Jr., Masha Mashkova. Tensions flare in the near future aboard the International Space Station as a conflict breaks out on Earth. Reeling, the U.S. and Russian astronauts receive orders from the ground: take control of the station by any means necessary. If you ever want to show someone what “foreshadowing” is or are in need of some great examples of “Chekhov’s gun”, then buddy have I great news for you, as I think this movie sets up the most dominoes I’ve ever seen in a film in the...

“Green Zone” Review

Green Zone: Directed by Paul Greengrass. With Igal Naor, Said Faraj, Faycal Attougui, Aymen Hamdouchi. Discovering covert and faulty intelligence causes a U.S. Army officer to go rogue as he hunts for Weapons of Mass Destruction in an unstable region. Matt Damon plays a good military guy fed up with the bullshit of bad intelligence, bad treatment from his superiors, and given a glimpse of being able to get something done in a war torn country that’s not really open to the idea of “getting things done”. It’s a bit of a wish fulfillment at the end with Damon’s character...

“Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part One” Review

Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths – Part One: Directed by Jeff Wamester. With Matt Bomer, Jensen Ackles, Darren Criss, Meg Donnelly. The Anti-Monitor (the Monitor’s evil counterpart) is released in the DC Multiverse and begins to destroy the different Earths that compose it. The Monitor attempts to recruit heroes from across the Multiverse, but is murdered. This is definitely loosely based on the Infinite Crisis books from the 80s and it definitely has some big names doing the voice work, but I never could find a way to get into the story in a way that felt enjoyable. Lots...

“The Iron Claw” Review

The Iron Claw: Directed by Sean Durkin. With Holt McCallany, Maura Tierney, Grady Wilson, Valentine Newcomer. The true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s. The second movie in my A-List week, I only went to see this one due to Zac Efron and the A24 logo. I don’t want to examine why it is that I find all of the A24 content so captivating for fear of learning how the sausage is made, but I know that Efron has been absolutely killing it in...

“American Fiction” Review

American Fiction: Directed by Cord Jefferson. With Jeffrey Wright, Tracee Ellis Ross, John Ortiz, Erika Alexander. A novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment uses a pen name to write a book that propels him into the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain. As I’ve found myself in a state of full time unemployment, I’m going to be hitting some of these less actiony movies via my A-List subscription, after all, why not? This entire week had me seeing three movies that I would have normally waited until streaming or purchasing was...

“The Black Hole” Review

The Black Hole: Directed by Gary Nelson. With Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins, Robert Forster, Joseph Bottoms. A research vessel finds a missing ship, commanded by a mysterious scientist, on the edge of a black hole. I’ve long loved this film and watched it again over two nights that I had some anxiety related insomnia and the warm comforts of a familiar story, setting, and characters helped me get to sleep at 3am. It’s good classic science fiction film with black holes (obviously), flying robots, cyborgs, and for some reason, telepathy between a smoking hot woman and V.I.N.C.E.N.T., one of the...

0

“Muppet Treasure Island” Review

Muppet Treasure Island: Directed by Brian Henson, David Lane. With Tim Curry, Billy Connolly, Jennifer Saunders, Kevin Bishop. The Muppets set sail in search of treasure, with Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver. Possibly the greatest Muppet story adaptation, second in my mind only to their version of The Christmas Carol, As always with The Muppets, the human actors are great foils for the well loved Muppets and Tim Curry really steals every scene he’s in with a devilish grin and glint in his eye. As with the Christmas Carol adaptation, this is no mere child’s film with dead bodies...

“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” Review

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom: Directed by James Wan. With Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Amber Heard. Black Manta seeks revenge on Aquaman for his father’s death. Wielding the Black Trident’s power, he becomes a formidable foe. To defend Atlantis, Aquaman forges an alliance with his imprisoned brother. They must protect the kingdom. I actually saw this a couple week ago and am just now getting around to mentioning it. Which isn’t so much an indication of how entertaining the film was, but of how little it stuck with me and how excited I was by seeing it....

“Gold Diggers of 1937” Review

Gold Diggers of 1937: Directed by Lloyd Bacon. With Dick Powell, Joan Blondell, Glenda Farrell, Victor Moore. When two investors inform an opportunistic dancer that they can’t fund an elderly stage producer’s production, she suggests they get an insurance policy on the producer’s life. The “Gold Diggers” franchise reminds me greatly of “The Producers” in which insurance payouts are the panacea for all the problems that some rather disreputable people are having. This is the third move of the franchise about women looking for love (and a paycheck) and the odd adventures and escapades they fall into. I’m obviously here...

“The Marsh King’s Daughter” Review

The Marsh King’s Daughter: Directed by Neil Burger. With Daisy Ridley, Ben Mendelsohn, Brooklynn Prince, Gil Birmingham. A woman seeks revenge against the man who kidnapped her mother. While this is a perfectly fine movie with some good acting from both Ridley and Mendelsohn, it feels less than what I was expecting, it’s more of a character study of a situation than it is an action filled revenge adventure. There’s some gorgeous scenery for Ridley and Mendelsohn to chew through, but the story failed to really draw me in. Buy On Amazon!

“Transformers: Rise of the Beasts” Review

Transformers: Rise of the Beasts: Directed by Steven Caple Jr.. With Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Luna Lauren Velez, Dean Scott Vazquez. During the ’90s, a new faction of Transformers – the Maximals – join the Autobots as allies in the battle for Earth. I can’t exactly remember why I rewatched this, other than it’s a popcorn movie that I could just turn my brain off and not worry about stressing myself about complicated plots, at least sorta, the time travel stuff is complicated enough for this type of movie. I’m more interested in what they’re doing in the final 5...

“Kong: Skull Island” Review

Kong: Skull Island: Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. With Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly. After the Vietnam war, a team of scientists explores an uncharted island in the Pacific, venturing into the domain of the mighty Kong and must fight to escape a primal Eden. The most recent entry to this giant monster series (Monarch) had some direct references to Skull Island and I swear I couldn’t remember a single thing about the film. I had forgotten nearly everyone that was in it, remembered none of the plot points, and the only thing I honestly remembered...

“RoboCop” Review

RoboCop: Directed by José Padilha. With Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish. In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy, a loving husband, father and good cop, is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. Saw a couple clips of the film on the TikTok and remembered that I didn’t exactly hate the film but couldn’t remember much about it, so here we are, having watched it again, I now remember why I don’t remember much about it. It does best when it doesn’t lean on the...

“The Artifice Girl” Review

The Artifice Girl: Directed by Franklin Ritch. With Tatum Matthews, Lance Henriksen, Sinda Nichols, David Girard. A team of special agents discovers a revolutionary new computer program to bait and trap online predators. After teaming up with the program’s troubled developer, they soon find that the AI is rapidly advancing beyond its original purpose. There’s only three sets in this entire movie and only 5 or 6 actors with the entire thing being a talking head exercise in discussing exactly what the computer program is and just how much it’s capable of in three different time periods. It may sound...
