Quality reviews of films of questionable quality.

    Possession

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) I've seen Possession twice and I still don't know what it's about.

  2. 07 Aug 2017

    Rio Bravo

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) Rio Bravo is my favorite movie but I can't imagine how to review it.

  3. 17 Jul 2017

    My Bloody Valentine

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) My Bloody Valentine proves you can defy the tropes while still staying true to the genre.

  4. 03 Jul 2017

    The Thin Man

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) The Thin Man drags at first, but give it a chance.

  5. 26 Jun 2017

    His Private Secretary

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) Foreshadowing a career playing characters with great names, John Wayne plays a wealthy socialite named Dick Wallace.

  6. 19 Jun 2017

    Giallo a Venezia

    Backdrop placeholder

    1 Star (out of 5) I have a soft-spot for over-the-top exploitation films, but not mean-spirited ones.

  7. 12 Jun 2017

    The Ghoul

    Backdrop placeholder

    1 Star (out of 5) Even the most ardent Boris Karloff fan can skip The Ghoul.

  8. 05 Jun 2017

    Casablanca

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) By the time I watched Casablanca, I already knew every line of dialog.

  9. 22 May 2017

    Play Motel

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) I expected a sleazy giallo and I got a sleazy giallo. The catchy folk-rock theme song? That surprised me.

  10. 15 May 2017

    Heat

    Backdrop placeholder

    5 Stars (out of 5) I tilt forward in my seat. My heels rise. The balls of my feet press into the floor. My hands clench tight and I realize I'm holding my breath. Heat on the big screen is an experience.

  11. 08 May 2017

    Free Fire

    Backdrop placeholder

    3 Stars (out of 5) You know that scene in crime movies, where a back-alley deal turns sour, resulting in a shootout? Free Fire stretches that into an entire movie.

  12. 01 May 2017

    Raw

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) I was fine with the cannibalism, but everything else irked me.

  13. 24 Apr 2017

    Deadpool

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) Beneath the crude jokes and over-the-top violence lurks a serious film.

  14. 17 Apr 2017

    Shock

    Backdrop placeholder

    2 Stars (out of 5) You won't believe me when I tell you not to watch Shock.

  15. 03 Apr 2017

    Logan

    Backdrop placeholder

    4 Stars (out of 5) It's taken 17 years, but Logan gives us the Wolverine we've always wanted.
