REVIEW: “La Llorona” (2020)

Read Time:19 Second

Whatever you do don’t confuse Jayro Bustamante’s “La Llorona” with 2019’s promising but ultimately disappointing “The Curse of La Llorona”. The two couldn’t be more different, their only real connection being the ubiquitous Latin American folk tale of “The Weeping Woman”. Bustamante has a much more sobering ambition, using the ghostly legend as a means […]

Wiig and Annie Mumulo from “Bridesmaids” and “This is 40” and “Bad Moms” are in Florida, going “Floridian.” If you’ve ever lived here, you know what I mean. And if you haven’t, you probably still get it. Florida, amIright? Lots of SNL and “Office” alumni in this one, which I believe has been delayed like […]

Wandavision is a Tragedy

Read Time:19 Second

I’m loving the layers of Wandavision. The comedy and the horror but while watching the two commercials during the show I couldn’t help think how very sad Wanda’s story, and by extent the show, actually is. Spoilers below! Especially that first commercial for the Stark toaster/bomb and remembering the story about Wanda and her brother […]

Mike’s Favorite Movie Posters of 2020

Read Time:20 Second

What’s my refrain whenever this article comes up? The movie poster is a lost art. And there’s no better proof of that sentiment than this year. Theaters were closed for the majority of the year and films were either pushed until next year entirely or released on streaming services or on demand. As such, you […]

David Fincher’s MANK

Read Time:18 Second

I am not a fan of David Fincher’s MANK, which I think is a bad movie even apart from how it disrespects the legacy of Orson Welles. Although I tend to make it a point to not post negative reviews on this blog, I find it annoying to see this film contending for awards and […]

Movie Review: Korean Immigrants are tested by the American dream in “Minari”

Read Time:21 Second

“Minari” is a near classic of the timeworn “troubles on the farm” drama, a story of a family of non-farmers facing the whims of nature and the widening fracture in a marriage as they set out to work the land and grab The American Dream. It’s “Country” or “The Southerner” or “Jean de Fleurette” but […]

Horror veteran Caroline Williams, who’s been around since “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2” back in the ’80s, gets a fine C-movie showcase in “10 Minutes to Midnight,” a tale of a “rabid” bat and the hallucinatory bloodlust consequences it has on an aging DJ’s last night on the job. Or that’s what she would have gotten […]

Movie Review: “Wrong Turn”

As far as “fears” go, I typically prefer mysterious and unknown peril to frights shoved in my face, explained, back-storied and underlined. But that’s now how the “Wrong Turn” movies work. For twenty years these films have gotten good looking actresses and actors lost in America and the world’s fast-disappearing wild places, menaced by whatever […]
