    Come and See

    ★★★★½

    COME AND SEE is a film that stares you in the eye and begs you not to look the other way.

    Many are referring to the story of a young boy joining resistance fighters in Belarus against the Nazis as the most horrifying or terrifying film of all time, and I believe these sensational claims may be a disservice to the film.

    As audience members we don’t see the off-screen actions of all the slaughter, torture, rape, and destruction. What…

  • Greener Grass

    Greener Grass

    ★★★★★

    On the surface, GREENER GRASS is an absurdist surrealist satire of an overly saturated suburban life that glows around the edges. Where every adult wears braces and drives a golf cart. And some individuals generously give away their baby at a soccer match and love their backyard so much they turn their pool water into popsicles.

    The feature film debut from stars / writers / directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe made me cry from laughter four times, and brought…

    EXT. FOOTBALL FIELD. DAY. 
    A roid raging football player in Misfits-esque horror makeup is sitting on the bench post victory and his tears of joy are creating a muddy mess on his face. 

    When dumb fun and social commentary on the corruption of college football meet on the gridiron, it just creates a muddy mess of a melodrama. 

    This would be funner if it was much dumber!



    P.S. The main character is on the poster 3 times. Is that a record?

    Pretty Woman

    ★★★½

    The Hollywood hooker with a heart of gold fairy tale premise is pretty ridiculous, but Julia Roberts is so ridiculously beautiful and effervescent that it’s easy to look past the film’s flaws.

    I think I’ve seen a little bit of a lot of Julia Robert’s films on cable TV, but this is one of the few I’ve seen all the way through.

    The Last Blockbuster

    ★★★

    How many levels of irony can you find? After a few decades of putting mom and pop shops out of business, the last Blockbuster is run by a mom and her family in this doc now streaming on Netflix.

  • I Care a Lot

    I Care a Lot

    Marla Grayson (Rosamund Pike) likes three things: making out with Fran (Eliza Gonzalez), sucking on a vape pen, and robbing innocent senior citizens of their free will and life savings.

    That sounds really fun, but this lacks the drama of GONE GIRL and the fun of BABY DRIVER so the thrill is gone because the characters are cold and calculating without being interesting or alluring. Nobody wins.
