Sentimental Destinies (les Destinees)
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Meticulous.period detail marks this chronicle of the lives in Temptations of a husband and wife entrenched in the French porcelain industry from the 1890s through World War II. The subject seems a little strange for someone to be passionate enough to make such an expensive and expansive movie about, but I was drawn into it's novel like story developments and enveloped within the time and place. You probably won't learn more about making upscale decorative plates and cups unless your visit the Delft factory yourself.

Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A total embarrassment to the ROTLD Siri's, managing to be neither scary nor funny. enough. This must've been made in Eastern Europe considering the number of i"-ivic" and "-ovitchs" in the credits. That includes the cast with the number of actors having their voices obviously poorly overdubbed. Stupid characters do stupid things for no reason, like a science student conducting an "experiment" by feeding lab brats zombie barrel juice. Most laughable moment: the introduction of Cory as the science guy wearing our white lab jacket and pouring the same liquid between two breakers at a dance party. Why? Who knows!

A shade above half star hell because I like the two Russian agents who seem to have unlimited legal access because they work for interpole, the women are good looking, in the barrel zombie trying to hitch a ride.

And by the way, where are the teachers???

Z For Zachariah

I wasn't expecting much and only decide to watch because I I had interest in seeing Margot Robbie and she rental at you for, but even with very little expectations this very slow film fails to entertain. Set up a simple and the characters are even simpler ; it's discouraging to think that when survival is the number one importance the three people left in the world still managed to complicate their existence is with junior high level relationship issues. Did you have for is an ass and for some reason feels he has to whisper most of the time when there's no one left to hear him but the person he's talking to. Another underwhelming movie that makes me wonder exactly why did the filmmakers feel this movie had to be made?

Frank Whaley is likable as a perpetual truth stretcher who takes a job is there overnight janitor at a target where he encounters beautiful Richgirl and want to be shoplifter Jennifer Connelly. they spend the night talking about each other's problems iand breaking down and breaking down their
misconceptions of one another. John Hughes's script still has some moments of teen insight that he was allotted for in the 80s but The fact is nothing really happens Plugwise here , which was obviously a concern to him hence the unwise introduction of two Deadly criminals during the last act. So this movie hasn't remembered fondly alongside 16 candles or the breakfast club instead people with good reason tender remember Tonnele his face which is shown in the close up more times than I can count , and her mesmerizing ride on the hobbyhorse, although the roller skating scene and especially the its hilarious expected conclusion/collision is my favorite moment.

Basically and updating of the exorcistic, complete with the 1970s setting. A few good scares and some effective visual effects, but I have a hard time buying into these haunted house/demonic possession premises. Doesn't help that they rather pointlessly throw in an evil doll for bad measure. OK for the genre but I won't be bothering with the sequel.
