My Favorite Movies Of 2020

10- Pieces of a Woman “Pieces of a Woman” is a movie that is difficult to review, and, at times, difficult to watch. But if anyone will remember it, it would be for its long opening sequence of a woman giving birth. It’s an incredible scene, fiercely acted […]

Minari [2020] ★★★½

This Oscar-nominated family saga is beautifully made, and features genuine performances by Steven Yeun and Yeri Han. The plot is simple enough: a Korean family relocates to a farm in 1980’s Arkansas. The wife is sceptical, but her husband is convinced that this could be the start of […]

Love And Monsters [2020] ★★★

You’d think with so many post-apocalyptic movies out there (and the fact that we live in one), there wouldn’t be any room left for something original. Ok, “Love and Monsters” isn’t entirely original (it feels like a cross between “Zombieland” and “War of the Worlds”), but it’s fast-paced […]

The Father [2020] ★★★½

Led by a phenomenal performance by Anthony Hopkins, “The Father” is a worthy Oscar contender and one of the finest films of the 2020. I cannot remember the last time a movie held me spellbound from start to finish, but then again, not many movies feature great performances […]

Deadly Illusions [2021] ★

In the 90’s, a movie like “Deadly Illusions” would have gone straight to cable TV. In 2021, a movie like “Deadly Illusions” should have went straight to trash. It baffles me that a movie like this one even exists. It baffles me that a group of people got […]

Madame Claude [2021] ★½

From the trailer and poster, you’d think this fact-based story about Madame Claude, the woman who created a business empire dedicated to prostitution in 1960’s Paris would be at least intriguing to check out. Alas, the final result is an incoherent mess that doesn’t have any of the […]

Thunder Force [2021] ★½

Netflix’s “Thunder Force” reminded me why I started this blog in the first place: to watch shitty movies so you don’t have to. It’s dumb and derivative, and it gives superhero movies a bad name (if you can even call it that). I like Melissa McCarthy and Octavia […]

Run [2021] ★★★

After her deliciously creepy performance in the Netflix series “Ratched”, Sara Paulson delivers the goods yet again in the new thriller “Run”, from “Searching” writers Aneesh Chaganty and Sev Ohanian. The duo have done it again by delivering a suspenseful 90 minute rollercoaster that doesn’t pull its punches. […]
