    Hush 2016

    ★★★ Watched 06 Jul, 2016 7

    You ever meet a person who had some real star potential? Someone with enough talent, smarts, and skills to be extraordinary? But instead of using that talent, they let it waste away and settle on being/living average?

    Hush is that kind of person.

    With a premise involving a deaf mute writer (Kate Siegel) being stalked by a killer while home alone in the middle of nowhere, this had potential to be great. In fact, it starts off really great. Siegel…

  • Bad Timing

    Bad Timing 1980

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Jul, 2016

    I feel dirty.

    The kind of dirty that you can't scrub off. The kind of dirty that a hot--not even a cold--shower can fix. The kind of dirty that doesn't disappear, but merely piles on overtime. Dirt on top of dirt on top of grime on top of grain.

    Bad Timing made me feel dirty.

    Bad Timing begins with the overdose of Milena (Theresa Russell) as her former lover Alex (Art Garfunkel) accompanies her in the ambulance. Scenes switch back…

    Josh Gad kinda annoyed me.

    His voice kinda annoyed me.

    The fact that I recognized his voice, but couldn't place where I heard it really annoyed me.

    Then I looked him up, what films he's been, and suddenly it makes sense why his voice annoyed me.

    He was that fucking snowman.

    You know what I'm talking about.

    That. Fucking. Frozen. Snowman.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck that snowman.


    Yeah, this isn't a Frozen review and that movie came out 3 years…

    What would you do if you entered a cab and noticed that below your feet, the floor was covered in explosives and your cab driver was intent on blowing himself up along with his cab?

    That's the dilemma faced by young 19 year old Walter (Alan Daicz) in this Argentinian film. After winning a contest that gets his graphic novel published, all he wanted was to make it to the conference to present it. His day takes a turn for…

    Frances Farmer should've had her revenge.
    Maybe she'll come back as fire.
    You know, to burn all the liars
    Leave a blanket of ash on the ground. That sort of thing.

    Is every actor in a Max Landis movie contractually obligated to dedicate 95% of their performance to giving a Max Landis impression? If so, that needs to stop. Holy fuck, that needs to stop.

    Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Jun, 2016

    See, Hollywood? THIS is how you remake a movie!

    The original 1996 Tori Spelling starring film was bland. Insanely bland. Mind-numblingly bland. It's watchable, if nothing else, but everything from the performances to the story to even the camerawork is presented in SUCH a bland way. So how did James Franco choose to spice things up when he decided to remake it as a Lifetime tv movie?

    Add vampires. And lesbians. Make them vampire lesbians.

    Makes sense, doesn't it?

  • Harvey

    Harvey 1950

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Jun, 2016 2

    You've never believed in Bromance until you've seen the one between Elwood P. Dowd and Harvey.

    Who is Harvey; you may ask?

    Harvey is Elwood's best friend who happens to be a 6'3 tall rabbit.

    He also may not actually exist. And Elwood might be crazy.

    At least that's what everyone's debating in the film. From doctors to nurses to Elwood's own sister, everyone has something to say about Elwood's sanity and his imaginary friend.

    But at the end of…

    Ok, maybe I misjudged this film a little bit.

    You guys remember a couple years back when I mentioned my weird friend recommending this to me without telling me anything about it?

    Well, me and that same friend have been having a bit of a debate the last couple months about whether or not this is a legitimately good film. We've been considering starting a Youtube movie show and the first film he wants to review is this. I refused…

    All I can say is that this movie will never get old for me. I used to watch this and the show that spawned it nonstop. Nothing's changed.
