Bio:
Yes, I am a film nut! I crave originality from the movies I watch, but usually settle for entertaining or thought-provoking. I'm a tougher critic than most, probably because I've likely seen it done better before. All I want is a good story and engaging characters and then I'm happy. Not too much to ask, is it? Even so, the sludge serves a purpose because then I appreciate the good ones even more. <widget id="413916" type="Rock You - SlideShow"/> <widget id="413939" type="Rock You - SlideShow"/>

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

(2010)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Completely loopy Scandinavian riff on the Santa Claus legend told as a foreboding ghost story! He originally wasn't the rosy-cheeked character he's become for today's commercial marketplace you see, the historic Santa was vicious and posed a particular threat to naughty children. When a wealthy businessman locates the body of the first Santa literally buried under a mountain in Finland, the nearby villagers deal with the ramifications. Well acted and wholly original Christmas escapade never really experiences any flashpoints, preferring a muted and realistic (believe it or not!) approach leading to an inspired, pleasingly ridiculous ending.

Bikini Spring Break

Bikini Spring Break

(2012)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There are plenty worse boobie comedies out there, several of which inflicted upon the world by this very production company The Asylum. This one about a small marching band troupe traveling to a national competition held in Florida is actually fitfully amusing and significantly bolstered by an especially attractive cast. Plucky Virginia Petrucci stands out as the daffy yet well-intentioned Zoe who has an unusually strong attachment to her flugelhorn.

The Legend of Sorrow Creek

The Legend of Sorrow Creek

(2007)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

No-budget chiller shows flashes of understanding how to set up scares and familiar jolts (a ringing phone, a man materializing in front of headlights). Unfortunately those occasional moments are lost within slow pacing, a flat & confused backstory, and pathetic characters. In fact the lead dude is the wimpiest horror-movie protagonist in memory, start with that he's in his 20's with a pal and two women but is afraid to go outside to get in the car merely because an old qeezer in overalls is standing in the driveway. Since most of his time is spent clinging to his girlfriend and crying, pretty soon the audience wants him to get the chop. The nonexistent production values makes this look like a student film, and if it was I'd give it a 'B' grade. But its not so I don't.

Despicable Me

Despicable Me

(2010)
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Pretty funny with spotty pacing. Actually something of a relief to see an animated movie that doesn't feel the need to fill every single frame with frantic action. Gru and his aged scientist inventor are easily the best characters, while arch-rival Vector and the trio of orphans (using the unimaginatively bland off-the-rack 3-pack of the smart one, the rebellious one, and the cute one) respectively strain for chuckles and manipulate sympathies. Kids will love the yellow minions.
