    The Little Things

    ★★★½

    * This was the shortest season of "True Detective" so far.



    * I always love me some Denzel Washington of course. (He's my all-time favorite actor, btw). Man, he's great in everything he does, and this movie is no exception. He's magnetic whenever he's onscreen, elevating every line and everyone's performance around him.

    * I kept waiting for Rami Malek to burst into song, but no dice. He just did a lot of glaring. This role could have been played…

    This film is why I'm always a bit freaked out when I'm having "tubby time" and have to dip my head (or ears) beneath the water. I go into a desperate state of fear that I will come back up transformed into an extra from the "Planet of the Apes" films.

    Thanks, Ken Russell.

    A Caribbean Dream

    ★★★

    Film #33 of my Seeing A Movie From Every Country Initiative.
    * Country: Barbados

    ***************


    An adaptation of Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM set on the tropical isle of Barbados.

    The concept is actually really cool and some of the adaptation choices made are very clever. These things are probably the the most enjoyable bits of the film itself.

    The acting is not great, but the actors seem committed and are having fun. That definitely comes across and makes the…

    Three… Extremes

    ★★★½

    Film #24 of 52 in the Horrorx52 Challenge for 2021 hosted by kynky.

    Category: Made in Hong Kong

    ***************


    Three short (40-minute) films from three different Asian countries (Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan) from three different directors (Fruit Chan, Park Chan-Wook, Takashi Miike).

    1. "DUMPLINGS" - (Hong Kong) - Directed by Fruit Chan, this is BY FAR the most disturbing of the three. A fading actress is trying to rejuvenate her appearance by eating dumplings prepared by a questionable lady…

    Okay, so this is the FIRST MOVIE in SEVEN MONTHS that I've actually seen INSIDE A MOVIE THEATER! (I've been to the drive-in movie theater a few times).

    Man, I have missed that feeling. So nice to be back.

    Okay, so it was just me and a couple of (truly horrible) parents and their…
