There isn’t anything surprising, unpredictable, or particularly original in “Ticket to Paradise,” director and co-writer Ol Parker‘s cookie cutter romantic comedy that’s as pedestrian as they come. It’s a standard-issue movie that was... Read the full review »

“V/H/S/99” continues the popular found footage film series with a group of shorts that take place as the new millennium is about to begin. The year is 1999, and the kids are restless and angsty. This feeling and mood carries through to each se... Read the full review »

Japan’s entry for the Best Foreign Film Oscar “Plan 75” is a science fiction film that’s surprisingly subversive. Director and co-writer Chie Hayakawa‘s debut feature is a contemplation on aging and the dignity of human life, but it woul... Read the full review »

I appreciate what director and co-writer Rob Zombie is trying to do with “The Munsters,” his film reboot of the corny 1960s show that followed a family of monsters who moved from Transylvania to the suburbs of America. The series was kitschy a... Read the full review »

The psychological thriller “Fixation” is a film that places more weight on style rather than substance. It’s visually haunting, features an unsettling lead performance from Maddie Hasson, and is skillfully directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan (... Read the full review »

The live action / computer animated movie “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile,” based on Bernard Waber’s beloved children’s books, isn’t the most original story in the world. It has a premise that’s not easy to accept, but it’s a fantasy tale wit... Read the full review »

Stephen King‘s novels are a match made in Heaven for most filmmakers, and his short story “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone” (from his novella collection titled “It Bleeds”) is another solid, if a bit thin, big screen adaptation from writer /direc... Read the full review »

“Last Seen Alive” is yet another example of extreme mediocrity from Netflix, where they sometimes have the rare hit but most of their original films are misses. At least director Brian Goodman‘s film is watchable, but it’s an extremely gen... Read the full review »

Smile (2022)

Smile (2022)

7 / 10
All around, “Smile” is better than you’d ever expect. Relying on a tried-and-true evil curse formula, writer / director Parker Finn puts an extra-creepy spin on his story by adding a simple physical attribute – smiling – that is used to... Read the full review »

“Don’t Worry Darling” isn’t the massive mess that so many predicted, but it does suffer from a few major problems. The script (written by Katie Silberman) lacks grace and polish, one star’s questionable acting skills is amplified by the... Read the full review »

The beauty of “Riceboy Sleeps” is that writer / director Anthony Shim‘s touching tearjerker about an immigrant family really captures and conveys the feeling of being a stranger in a strange land. The film gracefully expresses not only the s... Read the full review »

I had never heard of Motern Media before I saw “Magic Spot,” and a quick Google search surprised me that the folks behind this film have a cult following. Directed by Charles Roxburgh (who co-wrote the screenplay with Matt Farley), this low bu... Read the full review »

Forget sex, drugs, and rock and roll: GIVE US WORMS! Boasting one of the greatest titles in all of genre cinema, I truly wanted to love “All Jacked Up and Full of Worms,” a gross-out, demented, sleazy horror trip for the deranged (and prefera... Read the full review »

The startling and horrific opening scene in co-directors Raúl Cerezo and Fernando González Gómez’s “The Elderly” where a senior woman leaps from her apartment balcony in a graphic, bloody suicide sets the tone for what’s the come. The f... Read the full review »

Director, co-writer and star Mickey Reece is nothing if not ambitious with “Country Gold,” his offbeat, black and white dark comedy / sci-fi film that’s not quite funny or fun enough to become the cult classic it wants to be. Even though the... Read the full review »

How could a film with an accomplished writer and director (David O. Russell), a compelling true story, a stellar ensemble cast, and an elite list of talent behind the camera as well as in front of it be such a complete and utter mess? It has every... Read the full review »

Fans of independent animation will want to check out “Barber Westchester,” a delightfully eccentric film from artist Jonni Phillips Phillips. Her drawing style is appealing, and she strives for expressive creativity rather than perfection (i.e... Read the full review »

Maybe I just don’t “get” the horrendous “Birdemic 3: Sea Eagle.” Is this one of those movies that’s so god-awful that it becomes cool to hate-watch it, or was this made with artistic sincerity? It’s sad because I don’t think writer... Read the full review »

Writer / director Jay Burleson‘s “The Third Saturday in October Part V” is the first of a duo of films in his low-budget horror series. He’s made a subsequent Part 1, but Part V came first (there are no parts 2 through 4, which is part of... Read the full review »

Bros (2022)

9 / 10
I didn’t expect much out of co-writer and director Nicholas Stoller‘s “Bros,” a film billed as the first mainstream gay romantic comedy. In the wrong hands, a film with such lofty ambitions could feel like an overreach in political correct... Read the full review »
