    Baghead

    ★★

    So from my understanding, this short film is still in film festivals (so I'll try very hard to avoid spoilers of any kind and keep it to the point).

    I was asked specifically by what I assume are the creators of the short to do a review of their project. And I must say, that's quite a lot of pressure considering I'm no professional and reviews are just a hobby. But all the same, I want to respect their confidence…

  • Troll 2

    Troll 2

    ★★½

    Remember my review of 'Queen of the Damned' before this one where I was hoping for a movie that was hilarious in an ironic way? Well in the end, I got it!

    'Troll 2' is so hilariously incompetent, I don't even know where to begin or what to cover! The acting is shameful, the music is unfitting, the costumes and make-up are a joke, the cinematography is all over the place, the effects and editing are laughable, the story is…

    ½

    Well, darn! I was hoping this would be a movie that's so incompetent that it's actually funny. But, nah! It's just incompetent.

    If you read the description, you're led to think, "Yeah, this idea is so stupid, there's absolutely no way that even the best director could make this work. But it's also just stupid enough to potentially be one, big, fat, hilarious train wreck!" If you're like me and you thought all of that after looking into this movie,…

    The Princess and the Frog

    ★★★½

    Hmm, why do I remember this being better?

    Can I just say right off the bat that it is so refreshing to watch a film where the majority of the cast is African-American, the main character's best friend is a rich Caucasian girl, and yet no one brings up race AT ALL??? If that isn't good African-American representation without undermining Caucasians, I don't know what is!

    Speaking of which, lets talk about Lottie for a minute. She's great! She's one…

  • The Shining

    The Shining

    ★★½

    Umm . . . . . . . Is that it?

    I'm a little confused. Mainly by how this film is consider a "cult horror classic" when it's not even very scary, but also by everything else. What's with the naked lady in the bathtub? What's with the hallucinations with the bartender in the golden age ballroom? What's with the guy in the rat costume with his butt flap open doing "R rated things" with the other guy? What's with…

  • The Woman in Black

    The Woman in Black

    ★★★★

    I've been reading quite a few reviews on this movie, and . . . umm . . . I actually quite liked it a lot . . . . so . . .

    I could just be completely bias right now. I've always been a huge Victorian horror buff, and I don't really care that it's not effectively scary. I gave up on finding horror movies that actually scare me a LONG time ago.  As long as it has a…

  • Cats Don't Dance

    Cats Don't Dance

    ★★★★

    Pretty much 'Zootopia,' except the message is way, WAAAAYYY less on the nose and the animals aren't weird, fetish furries who are naked half the time!  It's also quite a bit like 'Sing' except there's an actual reason in the main plot for the characters to be animal that sing and dance.

    There is a fine line I have with furry movies. Non-anthropomorphic animals that talk: good! Anthropomorphic animals coexisting with humans and/or other creatures: even better! Anthropomorphic animals with…

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★

    I had to think long and hard about this one.

    There is nothing that puts me to sleep faster than a film about a character whose having issues with their sexuality (That's why I disliked Anomalisa so much, despite the quality of the film making). However there's something about 'Bohemian Rhapsody' that sets it apart from the other 'oh no, I'm gay' or 'I'm not getting any' films.

    'Bohemian Rhapsody' conveys a message that I have personally been wanting to…

  • La Noria

    La Noria

    ★★★★★

    I . . . am . . . in . . . LOVE!!!!

    I don't mean to brag, but I'm about to brag a little bit. I was at CTNX 2018 when I saw this short on the big screen, I got to see it twice, and I got to see ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING that went into making this short so jaw-droppingly beautiful, so tremendously dark, and so profoundly symbolic during the "making of" section later in the evening. By the…

  • Frozen

    Frozen

    ★★

    Another film that has a lot of really great elements to it (Especially that entire ending climax scene. Hoo! That was incredible), BUT EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN: The pandering humor, the obnoxious characters, the anachronistic dialogue, behaviors and social customs!

    Most of my cons for this film (even the songs) I can admit are just from my personal taste. At the end of the day, it's a film with a good premise and good moral arguments, with a very patronizing, easily…

    Ratchet & Clank

    Lawence wasn't in this movie. That alone is the most disappointing part of this entire experience.

  • Frankenstein

    Frankenstein

    ★½

    To all the people who praise this film for being ahead of it's time on a conceptual level, let me remind you it was "based" on a book that was written 113 years prior. This doesn't even hold a candle to the source material!

    Personally, I see that as the correct way to appreciate these characters!
