Wow, I did not expect to be disappointed with It Follows, but here we are.
Gorgeous cinematography and an incredible soundtrack on this terrific concept - but ultimately I found the execution middling.
Never full-on scary, but oft-off-putting, ultimately the film never capitalizes fully on its concept, but rather just shambles through despite the aforementioned positives.
I liked some moments in here a lot, but I couldn't get behind it as a whole - which bummed me out.
There's nothin' else like Hawk Jones.
Sure, Bugsy Malone comes pretty close, but the low-budget and over-scoring of Hawk Jones has it end up feeling like some kind of fever dream. Did I really watch that on the big screen last night? Or was it all a dream?
The most interesting thing about Hawk Jones, maybe, is that you don't see this kind of weirdo-kids production any more. Sure, you can go load up some YouTube videos where some family…
A drunk cat keeps messing around with two families in an attempt to ruin their lives. Or something along those lines. Did I mention that Eric Roberts voices the cat? Did I mention he recorded his voice-over in a garbage can? Did I mention David DeCoteau directed it? AVClub describes this movie as a talking animal movie meets The Room - pretty apt. I won't lie, I laughed pretty hard at this pile of crap a couple times.
