Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot

Reviewed on Nov 05 2018

Joaquin Phoenix could very easily get an Academy Award for this film, but the Academy never gives people what they deserve (very seldom) because it’s all politics. However, every alcoholic ought to see this film. Superb acting by Rooney Mara, who falls in love with him in his physical disability. Jack Black does a fine job in playing Dexter, who is also an alcoholic and is quite believable. Jonah Hill does a wonderful job playing an alcoholic who overcomes his addiction and becomes a ...

Patti Cake$

Reviewed on Oct 18 2018

This film was smart, hip, rad, and trace, about a female hip-hop artist who wants to succeed in the business and her lovable friends, who form a band of talented misfits. Young people (like me) would definitely love this film. Danielle Macdonald.

Ride With The Devil

Reviewed on Sep 21 2018

I missed this film myself and just saw it recently, but it's definitely a classic that will be a good film a thousand years from now. Tobey Maguire shows his acting abilities, starting off as a young boy in the Civil War and coming out a man after the war, being in a band of Missouri raiders. The characters have a southern warrior dignity and play those characters well. There is much loyalty between young men raised up together in Missouri, who side with the South against Jayhawkers, who side...

The Rider

Reviewed on Aug 28 2018

With this film I would say that destiny is at work here, because the actor in the film, Brady Jandreau, plays himself after being discovered by a Chinese director and filmmaker, Chloe Zhao, in the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. In the film, as in true life, Brady is a horse whisperer and bronco rider who has an accident and can no longer bronco. The movie shows the life of a cowboy and does an excellent job in the psychology of what it is to be a cowboy, in every aspect of their ...

Sweet Country

Reviewed on Aug 06 2018

I just love the authenticity about Australian films and the fact that they don't always use Hollywood starlets for those leading roles. In this film they use indigenous people playing indigenous people—a very interesting people who captivate the screen. It has a scene of a court hearing outside in a small desert town that would not be able to be duplicated by Hollywood. As always, the indigenous people get the short end of the stick, one way or another. It doesn't have the bells and ...

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

Reviewed on Apr 27 2018

A unique story about the creator of the comic book Wonder Woman and his polyfidelity relationship with two women. It's a very well done movie that should win an award in 2018. If it doesn't, it will be because of the subject matter. But it's a subject matter that should be discussed, as there are over 700 million starseed on the planet who have lived in different cultures in other universes, and he and his two wives were starseed; Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote. Director: ...

The Butterfly Tree

Reviewed on Apr 06 2018

I had hoped this film was made in 2018, because it deserves an Academy Award in several categories. It is a magical film, a love story. Evelyn (played by Melissa George) was enchanting as an ex-burlesque girl who has a mystical home filled with art, crystals, and unique clothing. A father and son fall in love with her and the mystery ensues. I fell in love with her too. A must-see for lovers of all kinds. I'd like to see more work by Director Priscilla Cameron.
