  • Patti Cake$

    “Patti Cake$” never overdoses on its features: wannabe rap stars, alcoholic mothers, harsh lives, and dreams. It’s a solid movie that keeps you going, even in its downfalls. Danielle Macdonald (The East,” “Every Secret Thing”) plays Patti, a 23-year-old aspiring… Read More ›

  • Good Time

    There’s a lot of ambition going on in “Good Time,” a bizarre crime drama, directed by the Safdie brothers (Benny and Josh). It starts off provocative, middles nice, but finishes off confusing and murky. I wanted to like it, but… Read More ›

  • Terminator 2: Judgement Day

    “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” the famous Arnold Schwarzenegger sequel directed by James Cameron, has been given a 3D re-release. I won’t review it in 3D, because it wouldn’t make any difference, but I can give you my review of it… Read More ›

  • Blade Runner (1982)

    Ridley Scott’s 1982 futuristic thriller “Blade Runner” is a bold and visionary experience. You just love looking at the skyscrapers, the crappy streets, the rainy environments,  the flying ships, and the Hong Kong neon signs. You also love hearing the… Read More ›

  • Brigsby Bear

    As far as I know, there has never been movie like “Brigsby Bear.” It’s a smart and unusual comedy about a guy fascinated with a TV character nobody has ever heard of. Why? Because he never existed. But now I’ve… Read More ›

  • Logan Lucky

    My mother just told me she hasn’t heard of “Logan Lucky,” a comedy crime caper from director Steven Soderbergh. I’m not sure how it will financially perform at the box office, since August is the slowest month for movies, and… Read More ›

  • The Hitman’s Bodyguard

    Director Patrick Hughes has tainted “The Expendables” franchise with “The Expendables III,” which was forced to be rated PG-13, because of an illegal DVD quality download weeks before its release. I named it number 10 on my worst films of… Read More ›

  • The House

    A part of me told me not to review “The House,” but another part of me has been begging me to review for the sake of principle. I had to give in, and as much as I like the Crown… Read More ›

  • The Glass Castle

    I attended a special Times Talks program with author Jeannette Walls, stars Brie Larson and Naomi Watts, and director Destin Daniel Cretton, all talking about how “The Glass Castle” film adaptation reflects on the true nature of the memoir. It… Read More ›

  • Annabelle: Creation

    I wasn’t a fan of the original “Annabelle” from 2014, which was a spin-off of “The Conjuring.” I felt it had potential, but somehow, it never really seemed to deliver (review can be found in my Crappy Past page). I… Read More ›
