Default 2020 Movie Reviews

1. Underwater, grade C+ = is deep sea disaster, monster movie. For a January movie this horror sci-fi movie is decent. Usually the movie industry dumps its total duds in the month of January but this movie has plenty going for it, most notable is the lightning speed pacing. Right off the bat the crew of the deep sea station is in trouble and thatís it. The movie is a race for survival for 99% of the movie. The acting is good. The special effects are decent and the monsters are surprising in ways. The problem with the movie is there is no character development and basically no plot but survival. Also, the movie is really dark and sometimes itís hard to tell what is going on.

If you like movies like Alien, Pandorum, The Relic, Leviathon, or Deep Star Six, you will probably like this movie. Itís not as good as some of those but itís decent, especially for a January movie.

Hereís a publicity shot of cute little Ronald Raccoon, co-star of Flahertyís LOUISIANA STORY (1948), a decent enough little picture about confused but satisfied Acadians, frolicking in the shadows of oil derricks in the swampy bayous. Ronald Raccoon walks off with the acting honors in this petit-portrait. Aside from Ronald, itís refreshing to see a picture whose cuts need to be shorter, not longer, and to see the poor when they arenít all bent out of shape over being poor, or hopped up on political grievances!

I have nothing to say about Virgil Thomson.

2. Gretal and Hansel, grade C+ = another horror movie, great atmosphere, some genuinely scary moments but a story I couldnít quite make sense at the end. There is a witch in this movie and her story gets muddled at the end and it really hurts the movie. However this movie has great art direction and I did enjoy looking at it. Itís a mixed bag.

3. Birds of Prey, grade C = Blah! Margot Robbie is a great Harley Quinn and that plus some decent fight scenes is all the good stuff. The story is only ok, there is no joker, and the evil guy is not that evil or appealing. Huntress is barely in the story and black canary is wasted. Another February dud. They should of just made this an origin story about HarleyQuinn and skipped the other women.

It's funny that one of the big complaints from fans about Suicide Squad was: "Not enough Joker!"

WB's response: No Joker at all!

sad.

Ok, Parasite was lovely. I really enjoyed it! It was a dark film, but I found myself laughing at times.
