Rating Title/Year Author
B- The Forest of Love (2019) Dennis Schwartz It's an ultra-violent thriller about uniformed teenage school girls, a suicide pact, wannabe filmmakers, artistic creation turning evil, a conman and, of course, a serial killer. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2019

Posted Dec 5, 2019
A- () Dennis Schwartz A harsh realistic family drama shot like a documentary. EDIT
Posted Dec 4, 2019
C+ Capricious Summer (1968) Dennis Schwartz It's boring, has little to say of value and its main characters are dullards. EDIT
Posted Dec 3, 2019

Posted Dec 2, 2019

Posted Dec 1, 2019

Posted Nov 30, 2019
A- Overwhelm the Sky (2018) Dennis Schwartz It's challenging as a murder mystery story and engrossing as a psychological character study. EDIT
Posted Nov 29, 2019

Posted Nov 29, 2019

Posted Nov 28, 2019

Posted Nov 26, 2019

Posted Nov 21, 2019
C Nomis (2018) Dennis Schwartz Goes up in flames despite a stellar cast. EDIT
Posted Nov 20, 2019
C Stuber (2019) Dennis Schwartz An unfunny, bottom-level, mismatched buddy-action-comedy. EDIT
Posted Nov 19, 2019
B Ford v Ferrari (2019) Dennis Schwartz A standard-issue sports film, that's well-produced and well-acted and made the old-fashioned Hollywood way with flare, heroics and cynicism. EDIT
Posted Nov 18, 2019

Posted Nov 17, 2019

Posted Nov 15, 2019

Posted Nov 14, 2019

Posted Nov 14, 2019

Posted Nov 13, 2019
B- The Report (2019) Dennis Schwartz Though it's dry in tone, at times leaden in execution and with much too much talk, it's still an engrossing look at how the system is manipulated by the two major parties. EDIT
Posted Nov 12, 2019
C+ Guns Akimbo (2019) Dennis Schwartz This is certainly not a film for the Harry Potter crowd, the film series its star became famous for. EDIT
Posted Nov 11, 2019
C Hell Fest (2018) Dennis Schwartz Can frighten you only because it's so bad. EDIT
Posted Nov 10, 2019
C+ Auggie (2019) Dennis Schwartz It runs out of ideas before it calls it quits. EDIT
Posted Nov 9, 2019
B The Bronx, USA (2019) Dennis Schwartz A pleasing nostalgia laden documentary about a once acclaimed high school in the Bronx. EDIT
Posted Nov 8, 2019

Posted Nov 7, 2019

Posted Nov 4, 2019

Posted Oct 31, 2019

Posted Oct 22, 2019
B- Curse III: Blood Sacrifice (1990) Dennis Schwartz The so-so B film was incredulous, but I'm a sucker for even only barely acceptable Christopher Lee films and ones that have witch doctors fully dressed for their evil role. EDIT
