Crop And Save
Ryan Wilder (Van Reynolds) at his BEST!!
Any Gen-X'er who's worked a restaurant will "get it" I understand that there is a a lot of people who can't/don't/won't identify with any of these characters......but those who do, WILL FU@$ING LOVE THIS MOVIE!! And Bonus, it's got Ryan Reynolds with the stink of "2 guys a girl & a pizza place" still on him.
The Voices (2020)
Good premise, Terrible movie
Save your time and read the synopsis. The actresses who occupy most of the screen time are not capable of pulling off the emotion or resonance needed to make this film engaging.
Devil's Playground (2002)
This movie touched my heart & haunts my soul
I checked this movie out of my local library over 15 years ago and it still crosses my mind from time to time. Whenever I find myself conversing about documentaries, this movie is never the first one I discuss but I ALWAYS bring it up eventually. Not because it's the Best Looking documentary, because it's not. In fact, it's production value is Busch-League Amateur-Hour...but as I've come to realize, none of that is as crucial as what the subject is that's being documented. When the subject is presented and you are transfixed, looking past your world into another world, and you feel it like you feel yours,you learn Production Value is as useless as it is worthless.
Devils Playground really made me try and put myself in the Rumspringa Rugg-Rats Shoes, try to look at it from their, perspective....a look that warmed my heart and broke my heart but I'm grateful I've seen it...it makes me think about what I feel from time to time.
(*Spoiler Alert* (kind of a spoiler, not a blatant spoiler, more a heavy-handed-trailer kind of spoiler)) I also bElieve what I see IS these kids, at that time!! and remembering my own youth and thinking that these kids have to decide their Body & Soul and ALL THEY KNOW ABOUT THE OUTSIDE WORLD IS WHAT THEY SEE FROM WATCHING the ENGLISH FROM THE SIDELINES....THEY ARE THROWN INTO AN ALMOST ANARCHIST ORGY OF NIHILISM AT PEAK (male predominantly) TEENAGE HORMONE HAPPY-HOUR...and they must each make Heaven & Hell decisions while crawling out of a cornfield hung-OVER A-F!!
All of the kids are Genuine & Extraordinary...but the 1 who REALLY got under my skin & into my thoughts was Farron Yoder (not sure about spelling but that's how it sounds) ....I LEGITIMATELY wish that Yoder kid a Happy Life!!
This Movie Got to ME
Requiem for a Dream (2000)
An absolute roller coaster ride of depravity and despair....AWESOME!!
If anyone has dealt with drug addiction,personally or thru a friend or family member,this movie will strike a very real and uncomfortable nerve. It is uncompromising in its telling of how drug addiction can creep into the lives of both the seemingly responsible and the irresponsible alike. Do not take the "Bob Dole approach" to this movie and dismiss it as a glorification of drug use,at face value. This movie is a warning! It says "Yeah,drugs can be fun,or in Elen Burynst case,helpful...but before you realize what's happened,your lost down the rabbit hole!" also the musical score that plays thru the movie is simplistic yet brilliant! Just like the movie,it starts out slow and meticulous,gradually becoming more and more louder and complicated leading into a symphonic cacophony. If you get this movie,it will disturb you as much as entertain!
The Man with the Iron Fists (2012)
The troof is this movie is awful!!
I read all the horrible reviews this movie had received and like an idiot I still watched it! I thought "Quinton Tarantino and Eli Roth are attached to it,so it must be watchable! Right?" WRONG!! RZA is as competent an actor as he is a director or writer! This movie is an absolute train wreck!! I'm not writing this review as a "Hater",rather as a warning to all those fans of the Kung-Fu genre,and or Quinton Tarantino/Eli Roth....."Do not enter! There is no sign of Quinton or Eli here! Do not be fooled by the credits! There is no depth or direction! The story is laughable,the special effects are terrible,and there isn't a single character that you don't wish dead within 3 minutes of watching! Seriously!"
