99 Homes
99 Homes (2015)
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Without an inch of sentiment, 99 HOMES is that rare American film that transcends the immediacy of the story line to make a truly daring statement against the American Way of Life. Which is here not seen as the savior of the planet, but instead an ugly dog eat dog way of living that is simply inhuman and disgusting.

The Green Inferno
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

With the HOSTEL films Eli Roth appeared to find his voice. No longer imitating other works, HOSTEL 1 & 2 took the torture porn genre to new extremes. THE GREEN INFERNO is a huge step backwards. A silly imitation of 1980s Italian cannibal horror, GREEN INFERNO has some great gore but ultimately the film just lays kind of flat. One great thing though! Wonderful to see do-gooder Americans get their just rewards. So maybe I did like it much more than I thought???

Coming Home

Beautifully balanced and perfectly directed, Yimou Zhang's COMING HOME takes bites out of your soul while examining the impact of China's cultural revolution in oh so delicate fashion. Zhang who has made hugely spectacular features is here back in small mode but his topics could not be larger, bigger or greater. And all is held together by the wonderful face of Gong Li. COMING HOME is a lovely, powerful achievement.

It's not bad. It's not good either. THE VISIT sort of lays there producing a few nice tricks and pretty neat performances. You won't scream, you won't really be scared, and the best scenes are already in the trailer. Except for a great moment involving a soiled adult diaper. Gotta love that at least!

Hitman: Agent 47
16 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The dog days of August are here! But where are the deliciously bad, in a good way, movies? Was hoping for that with HITMAN: AGENT 47. Got instead a dull faux video game with dreadful performances and very sad attempts to mimic Tarantino. AIM LOWER GUYS! And sorry Zachary Quinto, you're destined to win a Razzie for this one. But again, just for being bad. Not truly BAD.
