  • Evil Eye

    Evil Eye

    ★★½

    Evil Eye isn’t much to talk about. Yay for representation and it handles the cultural aspect with respect but that’s about it. 

    The film chooses to tell the story from Pavalli’s point of view but gives Usha more backstory leaving the former underdeveloped. There’s a good performance from Sonita Choudhury as Usha but I unfortunately didn’t care about any of the characters. It takes too long to get to get to the (final) moments we want to see.

    It’s Blumhouse Television so this honestly isn’t surprising.

  • Infamous

    Infamous

    Bella Thorne on screen.

    Nobody:

    Me: BE, BE, BE MY BFF. CAUSE IDK WHATS COMING NEXT. AND I’LL BE LMHO WITH THE REST. SO TTYLXOX.

    This isn’t a modern Bonnie and Clyde. We got that version last year. This is just a bad Queen and Slim ripoff with white people lol. But the story here sucks - the characters in Infamous seek out the crime lifestyle and aren’t at fault of systemic racism alas Queen and Slim. The film delivers on bad acting…

  • Come Away

    Come Away

    ★★½

    Angelina Jolie spends most of her time being a mother nowadays than she does acting but every few years, we get to chance to see her on screen. Her screen time is unexpectedly large too.

    With that set aside, Come Away disappoints with its really slow narrative and inconsistent tone. It’s beautifully shot and runs on imagination but it dedicates too much time to Peter Pan than it does to Alice in Wonderland. We recently had Wendy so it would have been fruitful to see Alice featured on the frontline instead.

  • The Craft: Legacy

    The Craft: Legacy

    ★★

    The producers really gave Zoey Luna second billing, while having her character literally just stand there for most of the film. 💀

  • Good Boy

    Good Boy

    ★★★½

    The Good
    - Judy Greer.
    - Ellen Wong.
    - The comedy.
    - The cute dog.
    - The unexpected ending.

    The Bad
    - 3-4 stupid jump scares.
    - Most of the action happens offscreen.
    - Not showing the dog’s transformation.
    - Not enough horror/blood/gore in most scenes.

    Judy Greer is a national treasure. Into the Dark’s Good Boy is a horror-comedy that nails the comedy but lacks the horror. But Judy’s comedic timing is terrific and that alone is worth a watch.

  • The Addams Family

    The Addams Family

    ★★

    Downton Abbey (2019) meets HGTV = The Addams Family.

    I finished watching Lucy in the Sky and I saw there was a screening for The Addams Family, which I regretfully attended.

    I can only imagine how great this film could have been had they gone with the original idea - produced by Illumination as stop motion with Tim Burton directing. A dream come true. But we instead got a flat film that’s going to fail to crossover to adults.

    It’s not…
