    Hustlers

    ★★★★

    "This city..No, this whole country, is a strip club. You got people tossing the money, and people doing the dance".

    The strangest thing occurred as I sat in my theatre watching these lovely talented women dance and hustle their way to financial security, I was on the verge of crying. No tears were shed, but like JLo's character Ramona states, "I was close". And no, not because of the booty, but because Lorene Scafaria delivers quite the emotionally and socio-politically…

    Lawrence of Arabia

    ★★★★★

    "The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts". 

    That quote is so dexterously delivered that the room temperature instantly cooled down. Not only does it reflect upon Lawrence himself, but it's the perfect retort to anyone who complains about the 222min runtime. This is my second viewing of David Lean's masterpiece, Lawrence of Arabia, but in all fairness my first viewing was when I must have been 6 or 7. So for all intents and purposes, this might…

    3 from Hell

    ★½

    "Hello, America! Did ya miss me?!"

    I'd like to start by stating that I'm not the biggest Rob Zombie fan. So take my commentary with large quantities of salt. I'm not as critical on his first Halloween remake, even though it's a bit hypocritical of him to accept helming it when he found classic remakes (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) to be reprehensible. if not evident from my less than terrific ratings of his first two entries into this Rejects trilogy, you…

    In the Cut

    ★★★½

    "Listen you want me to romance you? Take you out to a fancy restaurant? You want me to be your best friend and fuck you? Lick your pussy? I can do that. There isn't much I haven't done. The only thing I won't do, is beat you".

    My local theatre manager, film professor, and friend highly recommended, no, monologued this erotic thriller to me. The most effective selling point to this neo-noir, was that it had Mark Ruffalo as a…

  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★

    "Take a bite, and feel alright. Take a bite...of a Red Apple. Tell em' Jake sent ya."

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood...Brad Pitt drove around in Leonardo DiCaprio's Cadillac Deville, listening to an endless stream of 60s era appropriate music. And that's all she wrote. Take that cruising sentiment and stretch out into 2 hours, then throw in some jumbled little scenes (many of no value) of characters hanging out, reminiscing of the good ol days, inflating their egos,…

  • It Chapter Two

    It Chapter Two

    ★★½

    "Look at you! You look like all the hot Brasilian soccer players mixed together. Jesus!"

    ~ Epilepsy Warning ~

    As I predicted in my rewatch of It a few days ago, Chapter 2 severely lacks any suspense, tension, scares, and Chung Chung-Hoon's excellent tonal aesthetic. It's noticeable right off the bat. I wasn't necessarily hyped for the sequel, but I had some hope based off the cast announced. None of the actors really bring any greatness to their roles, instead…
