Awful

Mute [2018] ★½

 Epic fails come in two forms: terrible blockbusters like “Transformers”, which no one really expects much from. And disasters like “Mute”, in which you can still feel the ambition and passion behind this unholy mess. I’ve been a huge Duncan Jones fan ever since he dazzled audiences with […]

Suburbicon [2017] ★½

When a movie is written by the Coen brothers and directed by George Clooney, you’d expect something at least decent. Alas, “Suburbicon” fails on every possible level, stranding a good cast that includes Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac. The setting of a 1950’s suburban community offers […]

The Circle [2017] ★½

 How can a movie feature such a talented cast and still suck so bad? Emma Watson can make almost anything worth seeing. And Tom Hanks is one of my all time favorite actors. But “The Circle”, written and directed by James Ponsoldt from a novel by Dave Eggers, […]

Power Rangers [2017] ★½

Rings [2017] ★½

 It’s the curse of the horror sequels and reboots. You get one or two decent films and the studio decides to fuck it all up by releasing one pointless sequel after the other (I’m looking at you, “Saw” and “Final Destination”). I’m a huge fan of the original […]

The Great Wall [2016] ★½

 The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon as China’s last hope in their fight against some ancient creatures (huh?) is… how shall I put it? Cheesy. Ridiculous. A waste of talent. Damon traveled all the way to China to shoot this big budget production from director Zhang Yimou (“Hero”). […]
