Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead: Directed by George A. Romero. With Lori Cardille, Terry Alexander, Joseph Pilato, Jarlath Conroy. As the world is overrun by zombies, a small group of scientists and military personnel dwelling in an underground bunker in Florida must determine whether they should educate, eliminate or escape the undead horde. Some casual racism that’s hard to get past, but this movie (and the franchise) came up in a discussion about zombie films in which the various characters had the RIGHT idea about what to do. In this case, at the beginning of the film one of the helicoptor...

Confess, Fletch

Confess, Fletch: Directed by Greg Mottola. With Lorenza Izzo, Jon Hamm, Anna Osceola, Marcia Gay Harden. After becoming the prime suspect in multiple murders, Fletch strives to prove his innocence while simultaneously searching for his fiancé’s stolen art collection. I had some minor misgivings of this movie about the same character that Chevy Chase played nearly 30 years ago, which is based on a series of books, which means it’s a different story and Jon Hamm can do whatever he wants with the character without really being beholden to what Chase did with him. In many ways it’s a situation...

Avatar

Avatar: Directed by James Cameron. With Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang. A paraplegic Marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home. Re-released to theaters for 2022 to prep people for the December 2022 release of the sequel “Avatar: The Way of Water”. I’ve always thought this was a solid film, though the “white savior” parts of the film are getting more and more difficult to ignore and appreciate. Something interesting about this release is that they upframed it from the...

Pleasure

Pleasure: Directed by Ninja Thyberg. With Sofia Kappel, Zelda Morrison, Evelyn Claire, Chris Cock. Bella Cherry arrives in Los Angeles with dreams of becoming an adult film star, but she soon learns that fame won’t come easy as she harnesses her ambition and cunning to rise to the top of this mesmerizing and singular world. There’s a old familiar saying that goes something like “I’ll know it’s porn when I see it” and while there’s porn in this film, I wouldn’t classify it as pornographic. It’s a great look into the modern porn industry and Sofia Kappel does a great...

DC League of Super-Pets

DC League of Super-Pets: Directed by Jared Stern, Sam J. Levine. With Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski. Krypto the Super-Dog and Superman are inseparable best friends, sharing the same superpowers and fighting crime side by side in Metropolis. However, Krypto must master his own powers for a rescue mission when Superman is kidnapped. All the marketing pushed Johnson and Hart, for all the obvious reasons, those guys are super marketable and never fail to please, but I’m here to tell you their roles in “DC League of Super-Pets” they take an absolute backseat to Kate McKinnon’s fantastic...

Live Nude Girls Unite!

Live Nude Girls Unite!: Directed by Vicky Funari, Julia Query. With Julia Query, Jane, Siobhan Brooks, Kristina. Documentary look at the 1996-97 effort of the dancers and support staff at a San Francisco peep show, The Lusty Lady, to unionize. Angered by arbitrary and race-based wage policies, customers’ surreptitious video cameras, and no paid sick days or holidays, the dancers get help from the Service Employees International local and enter protracted bargaining with the union-busting law firm that management hires. We see the women work, sort out their demands, and go through the difficulties of bargaining. The narrator is Julia...

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty: Directed by Norman Z. McLeod. With Danny Kaye, Virginia Mayo, Boris Karloff, Fay Bainter. A clumsy daydreamer gets caught up in a sinister conspiracy. I had no idea that Bill Stiller’s 2013 film of the same name was a remake of this 1947 film, but when I stumbled upon the 1947 version on Kanopy and immediately gave it a go and I’m happy I did! The broad strokes between the two films are essentially the same, there’s a guy in a good job at a publisher that frequently lets his daydreaming get in the...

Emily the Criminal

Emily the Criminal: Directed by John Patton Ford. With Aubrey Plaza, Theo Rossi, Jonathan Avigdori, Kim Yarbrough. Down on her luck and saddled with debt, Emily gets involved in a credit card scam that pulls her into the criminal underworld of Los Angeles, ultimately leading to deadly consequences. This might be Aubrey Plaza’s best dramatic role. Not to set your expectations too high, but boy howdy this was a hum dinger of a film and it would be well worth your time checking it out.

Fall

Fall: Directed by Scott Mann. With Grace Caroline Currey, Virginia Gardner, Mason Gooding, Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Best friends Becky and Hunter find themselves at the top of a 2,000-foot radio tower. I think going into this movie I had low expectations, but by the end of the movie I was impressed with how everything played out. The movie opens on a fantastic great opening sequence to set up the characters and motivations, followed closely by some great great shots of a house while a voicemail plays setting up the rest of the film. True, there’s some exceptionally stupid behavior on...

Look Away

Look Away: Directed by Assaf Bernstein. With India Eisley, Jason Isaacs, Mira Sorvino, Penelope Mitchell. Maria, an alienated high-school student, has her life turned upside down when she switches places with her sinister mirror image. The idea that there’s another darker version of you on the other side of the mirror is nothing new, but this is one of the better versions of that story. India Eisley is a new actor to me, but she absolutely killed in in “Look Away” playing two versions of the same mousey high schooler and Assaf Bernstein uses some exceptionally good camera work with...

How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town

How to Plan an Orgy in a Small Town: Directed by Jeremy LaLonde. With Jewel Staite, Ennis Esmer, Lauren Lee Smith, Katharine Isabelle. When “town slut” turned sex columnist Cassie Cranston returns for her mother’s funeral it spices things up in the small town of Beaver’s Ridge when a group of eccentric town folk, each with their own motives, convince her to plan an orgy. I think this is the first time that I’ve seen Jewel Staite in the leading role of a movie, kinda wish we could see more of her, other than her time on Firefly then Stargate...

The Visitor

The Visitor: Directed by Giulio Paradisi. With Mel Ferrer, Glenn Ford, Lance Henriksen, John Huston. The soul of a young girl with telekinetic powers becomes the prize in a fight between forces of good and evil. I started this one becuase I was drawn in by the amazing artwork on the Kanopy page for it: www.kanopy.com/en/video/11413791 but alas, that artwork did not live up to what I was hoping for. Even the art on the wikipedia page is pretty cool: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Visitor_(1979_film) The movie is nominally about a war between cosmic powers for the fate of humanity, but that story gets...

Marriage Story

Marriage Story: Directed by Noah Baumbach. With Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Julia Greer, Azhy Robertson. Noah Baumbach’s incisive and compassionate look at a marriage breaking up and a family staying together. It’s hard to see this movie as anything other than a direct attack on ethics, and while I love her as an actress, the character that Scarlett Johansson plays here is an absolutely abhorrent villain that drags her kid through the mud and breaks nearly every promise or agreement that she made with her husband. I can’t believe this was the intent, but every opportunity for her to act...

Last Night in Soho

Last Night in Soho: Directed by Edgar Wright. With Thomasin McKenzie, Aimee Cassettari, Rita Tushingham, Colin Mace. An aspiring fashion designer is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer. But the glamour is not all it appears to be and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something darker. From all the trailers and marketing that I had vaguely seen out of the corners of my eyes, I had the impression this was going to be a fabulous story of the 60’s with dancing and singing. We did get that...

Hook

Hook: Directed by Steven Spielberg. With Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, Julia Roberts, Bob Hoskins. When Captain James Hook kidnaps his children, an adult Peter Pan must return to Neverland and reclaim his youthful spirit in order to challenge his old enemy. At long last, my Robin Williams journey has brought me to one of my favorites of his career. Even though the directory doesn’t hold a special place for it in his heart, I’ll always be grateful for the massive display of talent and effort that’s exhibited in every scene of “Hook”.

Samaritan

Samaritan: Directed by Julius Avery. With Sylvester Stallone, Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton, Pilou Asbæk, Dascha Polanco. A young boy learns that a superhero who was thought to have gone missing after an epic battle twenty years ago may in fact still be around. Initially written as a movie, then released as a comic, then adapted for the big screen, then bought and distributed by Amazon, the journey for the film was long and difficult, but now it’s ready for you to consume at your leisure on your device of choice! The movie itself is pretty ok, with many elements of a...

The Fisher King

The Fisher King: Directed by Terry Gilliam. With Jeff Bridges, Adam Bryant, Paul Lombardi, David Hyde Pierce. A former radio DJ, suicidally despondent because of a terrible mistake he made, finds redemption in helping a deranged homeless man who was an unwitting victim of that mistake. If you want to know what 90’s film making was like, this movie is a great look into the transition from the nitty gritty 80’s style to the slightly less gritty but still grungy around the cuffs 90’s films. This is by no means one of Robin’s better films, nor is it Jeff Bridges’....

Running with the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee

Running with the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee: Directed by Charlie Russell. With Dean Barrow, Rocco Castoro, Neil Cavuto, Janice Dyson. Life and death of software pioneer John McAfee who developed the software: McAfee Antivirus. I only tangentially knew about John McAfee and what he was up to in the later parts of his life, but this 1hr 45min movie gave a peak behind the curtain and there’s not much to like about what he was up to, from the supposed ties to governmental hacking and cartels to the over use of drugs that eventually lead to his...

Dave Made a Maze

Dave Made a Maze: Directed by Bill Watterson. With Meera Rohit Kumbhani, Nick Thune, Adam Busch, James Urbaniak. Dave, an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation. A sweet story of an artist trying to find himself in an unsure world, coupled with some seriously dark underpinnings. The entire movie is a gift to puppetry and carboard art, and per the credits there was an entire team dedicated...

Mary Shelley

Mary Shelley: Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour. With Elle Fanning, Bel Powley, Owen Richards, Joanne Froggatt. Life and facts of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, who at 16 met 21 year old poet Percy Shelley, resulting in the writing of Frankenstein. This is apparently pretty dang close to a true story of her life from my understanding and if that’s the case she lives an exceptionally liberated life filled with freedom and heartbreak. There’s nearly nothing about her most famous story in the film, at least not on the surface. It’s not until the very end of the film when one of the...

Richard Jewell

Richard Jewell: Directed by Clint Eastwood. With Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell, Brandon Stanley, Ryan Boz. Security guard Richard Jewell is an instant hero after foiling a bomb attack at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, but his life becomes a nightmare when the FBI leaks to the media that he is a suspect in the case. I think we’ve all met people like Richard Jewell, over compensating, overweight, overstimulated people with exceptionally high aspirations but lacking the abilities and authority to accomplish much of what they see for themselves. Despite the air of being an imposter in nearly every scene, Jewell...

Red Rocket

Red Rocket: Directed by Sean Baker. With Simon Rex, Bree Elrod, Brenda Deiss, Sophie. Mikey Saber is a washed-up porn star who returns to his small Texas hometown, not that anyone really wants him back. Directed by Sean Baker, best known by me for doing The Florida Project, “Red Rocket” has many of the same things that made TFP so captivating, from the shooting style to the dialogue, I really got the feeling that I was a fly on the wall during most of the scenes. The main character “Mike Saber” is a blown out ex-porn star that feels he...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Directed by Gareth Edwards. With Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. Back in IMAX for a weekend engagement to promo the next Star Trek series to show on Disney+, this is still the strongest Star Wars film that Disney’s released since they spent a couple Bs to purchase the entire franchise. The next best one is Solo, which is terrible to say when...

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn

Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn: Directed by Radu Jude. With Katia Pascariu, Claudia Ieremia, Nicodim Ungureanu, Olimpia Malai. Emi, a school teacher, finds her career and reputation under threat after a personal sex tape is leaked on the Internet. Forced to meet the parents demanding her dismissal, Emi refuses to surrender to their pressure. As a subtitled film, this fell to the bottom of my watch list, and as a film with no US distribution, finding a copy of it to watch wasn’t a fun endeavor, but if you do get the opportunity, try to give this one a...

Minions: The Rise of Gru

Minions: The Rise of Gru: Directed by Kyle Balda, Brad Ableson, Jonathan del Val. With Steve Carell, Pierre Coffin, Alan Arkin, Taraji P. Henson. The untold story of one twelve-year-old’s dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain. Have you seen other Minion films? Did you like them? You’ll have the same opinion of this one if you have opinions on the others, as there’s nothing ground breaking here. It’s the same goofy minions doing the same goofy stuff, but this time they’re with a young Gru and they’re trying to take a different McGuffin than the other films, but it’s...

Being Human

Being Human: Directed by Bill Forsyth. With Robin Williams, Kelly Hunter, Maudie Johnson, Max Johnson. One man must learn the meaning of courage across four lifetimes centuries apart. Four different stories, all told in different ways, all in vastly different time periods, and all of them staring Robin Williams as the main character. It’s an ambitious movie and sticks it’s landing in my humble opinion, it wasn’t received very well by either the public nor critics, with a 54% on RT. There’s never an explicit mention within the film that this is the same “soul” or person that’s living through...

I Think We’re Alone Now

I Think We’re Alone Now: Directed by Reed Morano. With Peter Dinklage, Elle Fanning, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Paul Giamatti. The apocalypse proves a blessing in disguise for one lucky recluse — until a second survivor arrives with the threat of companionship. I’m a fan of both Dinklage and Fanning, so it’s no wonder that I enjoyed this post-apocalyptic story so much. This is the first piece of content that I’ve seen from Reed Morano, but it looks like she’s been doing some pretty well received work on ‘Billions’ and “Handmaiden’s Tale”. The story is one of those “last man on earth”...

The Lost Daughter

The Lost Daughter: Directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal. With Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson, Ed Harris. A woman’s beach vacation takes a dark turn when she begins to confront the troubles of her past. A slow meandering movie with horror creeping around every scene with no ultimate pay off. There’s something to be said about watching it twice, once to figure out to what kind of movie it is, then watching it knowing where they’re going with the story and which parts of it you can ignore. This is a good film, but it’s a confusing one, and features the...

Hellbound

Hellbound: Directed by Aaron Norris. With Chuck Norris, Calvin Levels, Christopher Neame, Sheree J. Wilson. Two Chicago cops (Chuck Norris, Calvin Levels) investigate a murder until they encounter an ancient demon. There’s a lot to unpack with this relatively unremarkable film. First up is that it’s directed by Aaron Norris, who is Chuck Norris’s younger brother. He’s better known for his stunt work, and while he made a good effort at directing ‘Hellbound’, I think it’s for the best that he seems to have gone back to working on just stunt choreography and setup. Second, it has Chuck Norris as...

Welcome to Me

Welcome to Me: Directed by Shira Piven. With Kristen Wiig, Wes Bentley, Linda Cardellini, Joan Cusack. When Alice Klieg wins the Mega-Millions lottery, she immediately quits her psychiatric meds and buys her own talk show. For nearly the entire movie I was asking myself, is the studio shooting this show taking advantage of Klieg or is she taking advantage of them? There’s clear signs that both parties are getting something out of the arrangement but I can’t really say who’s more responsible for the bad behavior that ultimately ends up being broadcast on tv. The concept is pretty interesting, her...

Good Morning, Vietnam

Good Morning, Vietnam: Directed by Barry Levinson. With Robin Williams, Forest Whitaker, Tom. T. Tran, Chintara Sukapatana. In 1965, an unorthodox and irreverent DJ named Adrian Cronauer begins to shake up things when he is assigned to the U.S. Armed Services radio station in Vietnam. My journey back through Robin’s movies have landed me at one of his most memorable roles. There’s a lot to like here from Robin himself, but the setting of the movie makes all the humor punch much differently if it were just a funny film. Instead we get a sad look at a sad situation...

Day Shift

Day Shift: Directed by J.J. Perry. With Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Meagan Good. A hard-working, blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted 8-year-old daughter. His mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income: hunting and killing vampires. This isn’t the greatest vampire movie, but it’s in the top 20%, and there’s a pretty good bullet count going on in nearly every scene that made me feel good about what they were doing here. The first scene before the title card is a bit...

Let Him Go

Let Him Go: Directed by Thomas Bezucha. With Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Kayli Carter, Ryan Bruce. A retired sheriff and his wife, grieving over the death of their son, set out to find their only grandson. The chemistry between Kevin Costner and Diane Lane is real and palpable on the screen, this is the first time they’ve shared a movie since 2013’s “Man of Steel”, and while they didn’t exactly blow me away in the comic book movie, they definitely did the work for “Let Him Go” which is a standard sounding film but with a few interesting wrinkles to...

Prey

Prey: Directed by Dan Trachtenberg. With Amber Midthunder, Dakota Beavers, Dane DiLiegro, Stormee Kipp. The origin story of the Predator in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago. Naru, a skilled female warrior, fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth. Vastly better than “The Predator” this is a prequel / sequel / remake / reimagining / homage of the very first film, with plenty of references to nearly all the other films to keep even the most fervent fan of the franchise happy. Of particular note is Amber Midthunder’s...

The Predator

The Predator: Directed by Shane Black. With Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key. When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe’s most lethal hunters’ return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled scientist can prevent the end of the human race. Perhaps I gave this movie a bit too much gruff in my previous review, but not by much. There’s a lot to dislike about the film, it is over reliant on trope heavy characters and low brow humor, but there’s enough good stuff to still make it a watchable film. The casting is...

Predators

Predators: Directed by Nimród Antal. With Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins. A group of elite warriors parachute into an unfamiliar jungle and are hunted by members of a merciless alien race. I would argue, and I believe I’m correct in this, that “Predators” is the best film in the franchise yet, having taken the franchise to it’s next logical step. The next movie after this one is “The Predator” which I found to be a step backward from the heights that Predators reached. The first Predator film was amazing, yes. Arnold and his ‘rescue team’ really were...

South of Heaven

South of Heaven: Directed by Aharon Keshales. With Jason Sudeikis, Evangeline Lilly, Mike Colter, Shea Whigham. Convicted felon Jimmy gets early parole after serving twelve years for armed robbery. Upon his release, he vows to give Annie, his childhood love, now dying from cancer, the best last year of her life – unfortunately it’s not that simple. Jason Sudeikis and Evangline Lilly do a great job as a pair of every day people caught up in the stupid things that people get caught up in while they’re just trying to live their lives and do right by their loved ones....

Moscow on the Hudson

Moscow on the Hudson: Directed by Paul Mazursky. With Robin Williams, Maria Conchita Alonso, Cleavant Derricks, Alejandro Rey. A Russian saxophonist visiting New York with a circus troupe suddenly decides to defect from the USSR during a shopping trip to a department store, but he finds adjusting to American life more difficult than he imagined. There’s funny portions of this film, but this isn’t a comedy. It’s only funny in sad American ways, and really we should cry at the indignities of things instead of laughing at them. If you ever want to show someone a movie to prove to...

Predator 2

Predator 2: Directed by Stephen Hopkins. With Kevin Peter Hall, Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Rubén Blades. The Predator returns to Earth, this time to stake a claim on the war-torn streets of a dystopian Los Angeles. It’d be pretty easy to believe this is in the same universe as ROBOCOP, which is a crossover I think I’d love to see. P2 isn’t as strong as the first film, but it does have it’s great moments.

Irma Vep

Irma Vep: Created by Olivier Assayas. With Alicia Vikander, Vincent Macaigne, Nora Hamzawi, Antoine Reinartz. Mira is an American movie star disillusioned by her career and recent breakup, who comes to France to star as Irma Vep in a remake of the French silent film classic, “Les Vampires.” An exceptionally well done mini series with a large amount of confusion on the reality of the scenes. I adore Alicia Vikander and this series shows her at her best. Buy On Amazon!

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close: Directed by Stephen Daldry. With Tom Hanks, Thomas Horn, Sandra Bullock, Zoe Caldwell. A nine-year-old amateur inventor, Francophile, and pacifist searches New York City for the lock that matches a mysterious key left behind by his father, who died in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This is as sad as I thought it would be. It’s a well done film with an important message, but boy howdy do I not enjoy feeling this sad. Buy On Amazon!

Predator

Predator: Directed by John McTiernan. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Elpidia Carrillo, Bill Duke. A team of commandos on a mission in a Central American jungle find themselves hunted by an extraterrestrial warrior. I’m doing a rewatch of the 3 main Predator movies before the next movie drops on the Hulu this Friday. Wait, there’s four of them? I even went to see that fourth one, how did I forget it?

Fresh

Fresh: Directed by Mimi Cave. With Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sebastian Stan, Jojo T. Gibbs, Andrea Bang. The horrors of modern dating seen through one young woman’s defiant battle to survive her new boyfriend’s unusual appetites. This is new ground for me, as I didn’t think it would be as straight up freaky as it ended up being Sabastian Stan, who I know mostly from his role in the MCU, plays a delightfully terrifying guy that’s just barely on the wrong side of sanity, and plays off Daisy Edgar-Jones perfectly.

Nope

Nope: Directed by Jordan Peele. With Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott. The residents of a lonely gulch in inland California bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery. I thought this review was going to be a complaint about how modern trailers are straight up spoiling the movies, but that’s not what I’m here to say. I mean, yes, modern trailers absolutely give away some of the best parts of their films, but in this case, I hesitate to say that’s what happened here, as I think Peele used the normal expectations and tropes against what he...

1UP

1UP: Directed by Kyle Newman. With Paris Berelc, Taylor Zakhar Perez, Ruby Rose, Hari Nef. Follows a gamer who quits her college esports team due to sexism from her male counterparts. Equal parts low budget gamer movie and low budget girl power movie and low budget Revenge of the Nerds, there’s a pretty ok movie at the heart of “1UP”, though you’ll need to look past some pretty offensive performative tropes that are right up in your face. Buy On Amazon!

Empire of Dreams: The Story of the ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy

Empire of Dreams: The Story of the ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy: Directed by Edith Becker, Kevin Burns. With Robert Clotworthy, Walter Cronkite, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg. An in-depth making of documentary about the original Star Wars trilogy, covering the productions of the three films and their impact on popular culture. Released in 2004 with interviews from the 1990’s, but with some scenes updated to their 4k versions, this is a weird hybrid of time traveling opinions from many of the behind the scenes characters and most of the on screen actors. It’s good, but I distinctly remember some of these interviews...

Conan the Destroyer

Conan the Destroyer: Directed by Richard Fleischer. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Grace Jones, Wilt Chamberlain, Mako. Conan leads a ragtag group of adventurers on a quest for a princess. Arguably better than the first one, but that’d be a fun argument to have, as both films have exceptionally strong portions and co-stars. In this case Arnold is joined by Grace Jones and Wilt Chamberlain, both of whom did a fantastic job as Conan’s traveling buddies. Buy On Amazon!

The Red Shoes

The Red Shoes: Directed by Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. With Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring, Moira Shearer, Robert Helpmann. A young ballet dancer is torn between the man she loves and her pursuit to become a prima ballerina. Supposedly one of “the most beautiful” films in the world, this is a fantastically restored film by Criterion that’s worthy of viewing simply on the merits of the main lead and her ability to show her descent into desperation while being torn in two by her competing desires for love of a man and love of dancing for one of the most talented...

Re-Animator

Re-Animator: Directed by Stuart Gordon. With Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott, Barbara Crampton, David Gale. After an odd new medical student arrives on campus, a dedicated local and his girlfriend become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue. It’s on sale on Apple for just $3, so if you’re a Lovecraft fan, a Zombie fan, a medical horror fan, or even a Jeffrey Combs fan, this is the movie for you! The special effects are terrible, the acting is terrible, the script is terrible, and it’s really amazing that I love it so much. Buy On Amazon!

Star Trek: Lower Decks

Star Trek: Lower Decks: Created by Mike McMahan. With Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero. The support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies. I worched it again, because I have purchased it in a physical disk. Why do I continue to do this? Because who knows what’s going to be available tomorrow on the internet, that’s why! Buy On Amazon!
