    The House of Secrets


    Not nearly so interesting as the description makes it sound. 90% of scenes are two people in a room talking or threatening people to stay away from Hawk's Nest. It finally gets interesting at the end, but I had to fast-forward to get there.

    Seven Keys To Baldpate


    Some fun moments but uneven and rather staid. Seems like it could have been more rollicking - perhaps other versions are. Henry Travers as a woman-hater is the best part. He steals every scene he's in.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    The worst dialogue since... a long time ago. So many stupid, har-har jokes. I liked 20% of it - Carrie Fisher's face, Mark Hamill's finale, Yoda.

  • Annihilation



    When all is said and done, this is a 1950s sci-fi pretending to be a very serious 21st century psy-fi. I would have liked it a lot more had it taken itself a lot less seriously. However, it is true that it is beautifully shot and designed. The performances are solid... but again... suffers from clench-jawed seriousness, so they only get to play "one note."
