Mulan (2020) review, and comparison to the 1998 animated version

https://www.newdvdreleasedates.com/images/posters/large/mulan-2020-22.jpg Rated: HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!! https://www.yucatanalamano.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Mulan.gif https://media.giphy.com/media/aJmzCOOZYRwY0/giphy.gif Plot twist, "you" is Disney, and the "cow" is Mulan. I was so tempted to write this review the moment after I watched it. But I didn't, for a couple reasons. 1.) I wanted to rewatch the original 1998 animated version (which I did). 2.) Prioritized a board game I'm … Continue reading Mulan (2020) review, and comparison to the 1998 animated version

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

http://resizing.flixster.com/JF7AgkzZNGkbqE1sV9p6ASAKw28=/799x1142/dkpu1ddg7pbsk.cloudfront.net/movie/11/17/78/11177872_ori.jpg Rated: 3.5 / 5 "Are you a homosexual?""No!" That is probably the biggest lie Mr. Ripley says during the entire movie. Every time he puts on an act or does an impersonation, it is always with the women. Whenever he is with the young men of this movie, for the most part, he is … Continue reading The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

White Dog (1982) and Homicide (1991) dual review, and the issue of race

There will be spoilers for both films. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-MKWPq55b1uo/UMYwHdYOiMI/AAAAAAAAN80/b8bTb7-PaLk/s1600/poster+whitedog+2.jpg Rated: 3.5 / 5 I have to admit, the 80s to the early 90s continue to impress me. The most interesting of their films tend to have a lot of grey in their morals and themes, rather than making a pure black and white picture (assuming we're … Continue reading White Dog (1982) and Homicide (1991) dual review, and the issue of race

The International (2009) review

https://sisterrose.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/the-international-movie-poster-12.jpg Rated: 4 / 5 "The truth means responsibility!""Exactly! Which is why everyone dreads it!" Films like these are how I know cinema didn't truly start dying until at least 2012. Sure there were the signs of decay with the unofficial banning (official blacklisting) of The Path to 9/11, but that was Disney being censorious … Continue reading The International (2009) review

Favorite Movie Shootout Scenes

Title should be self evident. These are my favorite shootouts in film history. And by shootouts, I mean there needs to be bullets flying everywhere and decimating both the flesh and the walls/doors/cars/glass. And what is it about them that makes them the best? Well, if it makes me want to watch them more than … Continue reading Favorite Movie Shootout Scenes

Half-Drunk review of The Most Fucked Up Kid Flick Ever Made

So I'm reasonably blasted right now.  Pretty sure I'd send my liver into a seizure if I drank anymore booze. ... Oh, who am I kidding?  I could probably gulp down a few more shots and just be fucking dandy.  I just re-experienced a fucked up kid flick from my childhood.  Back in the early … Continue reading Half-Drunk review of The Most Fucked Up Kid Flick Ever Made

The Long Walk Home (1991)

Rated: 1.5 / 5 So I made this review on IMDB, which is currently getting processed.  On the off-chance they're as bitchy as I've heard, and they terminate both it and my short-lived account, I'm putting it here.  On the chance that the review stays and my account doesn't get terminated, I'm keeping it up … Continue reading The Long Walk Home (1991)

Dreamscape (1984) and Inception (2010) dual review

DREAMSCAPE Rated: 3 / 5 INCEPTION Rated: 3.5 / 5 I've been having a hard time finding my mojo with spontaneously writing up film reviews, even for those I've recently seen.  I think it has something to do with this cocksucking Wuhan Chinese kung flu COVID (can operate vividly in death; I don't know, I'm … Continue reading Dreamscape (1984) and Inception (2010) dual review

Terminator: Genisys (2015) review

Older review from my deleted Letterboxd account, all the way back from 2015. Not that I needed to state that this review contains spoilers because of the shit those cocksucking trailers pulled, but this review contains spoilers. I could have watched fucking Inside Out. I had the gift certificate, I knew it was going to … Continue reading Terminator: Genisys (2015) review

The NeverEnding Story (1984) movie review

Rated: 2.5 / 5 Confession: I have not read the book.  And I know a lot of people are going to say, "The book is way better!  The movie only has half of the whole (never ending) story!"  Fans of the book have a disliking for it, and the author of the book hates the … Continue reading The NeverEnding Story (1984) movie review
