The Seventh Sign has had a remarkably long shelf life and it always amazes me the number of people who pop out of the woodwork and comment how much they love it. Personally, I don’t get it.
The first half of this new take on A Star Is Born is incredible. The portions where Jackson and Ally meet, romantically intertwine and learn how to make music together are superb, Cooper and Gaga achieving a melodic harmony that held me spellbound.
Venom is a bad movie.
“[Colette] wasn’t about what society thought you were, she was about who she felt, who she knew, she was. She declared her voice loud and proud, and that’s why I think she’s an inspiration for today.”
– Wash Westmoreland
If Colette doesn’t make my list as one of 2018’s best films, it’s still certainly deserving of being an honorable mention, this historical biography of one of the great writers of the 20th century a fascinating treatise on artistic, sexual and gender expression I’ll not soon forget.
While Hell Fest has its moments, while there is plenty here worthy of praise, none of that is strong enough to overlook the film’s more irritating missteps. Maybe I’ll change my mind later, but as of right now I just can’t do it.
While there are some laughs, while a few solid dramatic moments are to be found, on the whole nothing ends up working, Night School a frustrating misfire that sadly proves to be a waste of time for almost everyone involved.
Smallfoot is just pleasing enough younger viewers will likely have a grand time watching Migo and his fellow yeti’s juvenile antics. While I didn’t like the movie, that doesn’t mean I can’t admit I’m not exactly in the prime age group it’s been designed to entertain.
The insanity of Scream for Help cannot be undersold. Michael Winner’s head-scratching teenage coming-of-age slasher film is a skuzzy Nancy Drew mystery overflowing in easygoing sleaze. It’s freakishly entertaining, likely for all of the wrong reasons, and I’m sort of flabbergasted I’ve never watched this wonderfully schlocky misfire until now.
