    Summer Girl

    ★★★

    That foreshadowing storm kicks in when daddy comes home, signaling someone is starting to feel a little trapped. Kids to feed, wife to please, house to buy... good thing mom needs some help for the summer and a teenage girl should be the resolution to their problems, if only this weren't a TV movie. This is a style I dont particularly care for (that cover, very misleading), seventies remnants with a side of hardwood drab and ruffled sleeves, but hey,…

  • What Lies Beneath

    What Lies Beneath

    ★★★½

    Without a doubt this is the Hollywood Lifetime movie fanfare. It seems strange that Robert Zemeckis would make a film like this considering his general approach is somewhere in everyday life protrayals mixed with a soft touch of adventure or whimsy. This is a downright depressing film. Even the most melancholic aspects of his other films have the lightest grief, a male protagonist my-wife-left-me kind of melodrama. What Lies Beneath is an old school psychological thriller that is clearly from…

    John Dies at the End

    ★★★½

    if you're reading this, it's probably already too late. you've already turned off the movie or got bored so you're looking through your phone reading what other people thought about it to avoid formulating an opinion because the interest is already depleted. Why waste any more time on a film that isn't that great anyway?

    David Wong, or well Jason Pargin, is one of many quintessential pop culture writers of the early aughts. Inappropriate and comfortably serviceable for what I…

    ★★★★

    I quit smoking, but this movie may make me a smoker again because its very nature is in wanting what is bad, indulging something you know might kill you. It's been awhile since I felt dread from a movie, that turning point when you suspect you've been lied to and feel that shiver run down into your toes. Mesmerizing and chaotic, embraces the mundane like a date at a bar or catching the train at night as a slightly daring…

    I really love this movie, and not for the obvious reason, so here’s a little female perspective for you chuds.

    Whaley is so incredibly charming as doofy outcast, never over-fixated with Josie, but relatable self-involved idiosyncratic Jim. Right on the cusp of the “mall movie” aka Clueless, Mallrats, etc. quirky shenanigans in the only place young people can convene after high school and before twenty-one. Includes intense flashbacks to the time I worked at PetSmart for the summer, not really…

    ★★★★½

    A Proto-Little Miss Sunshine: unseen micro-budget family van ride story. Everyone’s idiosyncrasies and flaws comedically on display, subtle holiday feel goods of Seinfeld relatability.

    Highlight is Liev Schrieber playing “smartest guy in the room” writer-type who loves indulging about his Kafkaesque novel and aristocracy. Parker Posey plays mostly blasé cool Posey (I’m not complaining) who chain smokes and has a weakness for said intellectual writer types (raises hand), and Hope Davis as adorable older sister tracking down her husband in…
