How Mindhunter Makes Conversation More Frightening Than Blood

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 8.5 out of 10. I know I’ve been on a bit of a ’70s run recently, with the likes of The Long Goodbye, The French Connection, The Parallax View and Marathon Man, so I thought this would be a nice change of gear with recent Netflix series Mindhunter. But, ah ha! I’ve fooled […]

First Glance: “Oxygen”

An exciting first trailer as dropped for the upcoming Netflix survival thriller “Oxygen”. It comes from director Alexandre Aja whose last movie was the surprisingly entertaining “Crawl”. You know, the one about a father and daughter trapped inside their flooded home by killer alligators during a Category 5 hurricane. On paper it sounded ludicrous. But […]

Netflixable? An over-the-top Turkish “Oliver Twist,” “Paper Lives”

All over Istanbul, entrepreneurial scavengers pull junk carts, filling the canvas bags on those carts with recyclable cans, liquor bottles and especially cardboard. A lot of them are orphans, the street children of the city who grew up on this work, running carts for a go-between who pays them for their collections and sells those […]

REVIEW: “Thunder Force” (2021)

Melissa McCarthy’s collaborations with writer-director and husband Ben Falcone have been pretty brutal. Falcone has directed McCarthy in four previous movies. Of those, 2018’s abysmal “Life of the Party” has the highest Rotten Tomatoes score at 38%. Yes I know, review aggregators aren’t infallible and they don’t always represent the quality of a movie. I […]

REVIEW: “Concrete Cowboy” (2021)

Idris Elba is an actor I’ve always admired. Whether he’s speaking with power and passion as Nelson Mandela or declaring himself Black Superman in “Hobbs & Shaw”. He has always possessed both leading man charisma and supporting role restraint. He uses a little of both in the new Netflix drama “Concrete Cowboy”, directed by Ricky […]

Netflixable? Teen Italians, in love and facing tragedy — “Caught by a Wave”

Young love is tested by illness and honesty issues in “Caught by a Wave,” a scenic Italian romance set against a sailing backdrop. The leads are pretty and the locales romantic, but the scenario is generic and the pacing funereal in this dry-eyed weeper of rehab and regattas. Sailing camp on the isle of Favignana […]

Breaking Bad (2008-2013)

There is no doubt that Breaking Bad is genius. It shows how “the impossible”—like the notion that an innocent, deferential science teacher could transform into an evil, mass-murdering, money-laundering meth kingpin within a couple of years—becomes “possible.” And, even more strikingly, the dichotomy between lead character Walter White and his sidekick Jesse Pinkman is brilliant.

Netflixable? A “Bad Trip” that goes a prank or two too far

If Hollywood is going to give screenwriting Oscar nominations to “Borat” movies, brace yourself for pranks, pranks and more pranks pictures. “Bad Trip” is more at the “Bad Grandpa” with Johnny Knoxville end of the practical joke pictures spectrum. A little edge, a few confrontations with angry rural America, waaaay too many bodily function/bodily fluid […]
