A Very Funny and Worthwhile Entertainment
25 September 2018
Eddie Jones (Courtney B. Vance) is a hitman, working for U. S. Government. He eliminates persons that the government has problem or does not like. He is 'working' a lot and saving some money for his retirement. Good and faithful catholic, he has not had sex for three years. While confessing, he tries to bargain his murders by his celibate with God. His boss is "Middleman" (Kathleen Turner), who likes him and decides to arrange a date for Eddie. She orders Eddie to meet Lois Newton (Regina King) in a restaurant, and after a lot of confusion and misunderstandings, mainly due to Eddie's profession, they fall in love (and lust) with each other.

"Love and Action in Chicago" is an action-comedy-romance really very funny. Courtney B. Vance usually works in "serious" movies, and has a great performance in this black-humor comedy. There are at least three scenes that make this film worthwhile watching: Eddie's confession, when he tries to bargain his penitence with the priest; Eddie's first date with Lois, when she is pregnant; and the misunderstanding of Frank Bonner (Jason Alexander) with the profession of Lois. In the end, "Love and Action in Chicago" is a great entertainment that makes laugh a lot. My vote is seven.

Has not Aged and Gets Better with the Years
23 September 2018
"Husbands and Wives" is a Woody Allen´s film for mature audiences that has not aged and gets better with the years. Jack and Sally and Gabe and Judy are best friends. When the first couple announces that they are going to split up to have new experiences, the initial shock to Gabe and Judy reverts to questioning of their own marriage with a surprising conclusion. This simple storyline about separation processes on the hands of Woody Allen turns into a funny and thoughtful film, supported by a great cast and witty dialogues and situations. This is a movie that can be seen and assessed from time to time. My vote is eight.

Another Gem from the Wonderful 80´s
23 September 2018
The teenager Keith (Eric Stoltz) is a high-school student and mechanic that lives with his working class family. His father´s ambition is that Keith goes to college but it not his priority since he loves Arts. His best friend is the tomboy Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) and the girl of his dreams is the popular Amanda (Lea Thompson). When she breaks up with his wealthy boyfriend Hardy Jenns (Craig Sheffer), Keith invites Amanda to date and she accepts to get even of Hardy. But the rich boy plans a scheme to humiliate the couple with his friends. Meanwhile Watts discovers her true feelings for Keith.

"Some Kind of Wonderful" is another gem from the wonderful 80´s. This feature presents a successful young generation of actors and actresses and it is highly nostalgic and entertaining to watch it again thirty and something years after its release. My vote is seven.

The Rock Monsters from Outer Space
21 September 2018
In San Angelo, California, the geologist Ben Gilbert (Phil Harvey) finds a piece of meteorite in the desert and brings it to his office. However the black rock has a chemical reaction with the rain water and on the next morning, Ben´s co-worker Dave Miller (Grant Williams) finds him petrified in the office. Meanwhile Dave ´s girlfriend, the teacher Cathy Barrett (Lola Albright), brings her class to the desert and the girl Ginny (Linda Scheley) takes a piece of meteorite home. When Cathy sees Ben´s rock, she recognizes and she goes to Ginny´s house with Dave and a police officer. They find the farmhouse destroyed, Ginny´s parents dead and the girl in shock with one hand turning into stone. Dave seeks out his former professor Arthur Flanders (Trevor Bardette) to help him to solve the mystery while Ginny is taken to a Medical Research Institute in Los Angeles to the famous Dr. Steve Hendricks (Harry Jackson) to try to find the cure. Will they succeed?

"The Monolith Monsters" is a horror film from Universal with the original story of rock monsters from outer space. The screenplay is well-developed and highly entertaining but the rushed conclusion disappoints. My vote is seven.

The Devolution of a Man
21 September 2018
When the student Jimmy (Troy Donahue) brings a coelacanth to the science professor and scientist at Dunsford University Dr. Donald Blake (Arthur Franz), his dog licks the water thawed from the freezer in the van. It is encaged in Sr. Blake´s laboratory and soon it turns into a primitive species. Dr. Oliver Cole (Whit Bissell) asks a sample of the dog´s saliva to Dr. Blake and sends his Nurse Molly Riordan (Helen Westcott) to take it. Meanwhile Dr. Blake scratches his hand in the coelacanth´s mouth and touches into the water where the fossil is and when Molly arrives, she drives him home. Dr. Blake passes out and Molly calls Dr. Cole, but she is attacked. When his fiancée Madeline Howard (Joanna Moore) arrives, she finds Blake with ripped clothes and Molly murdered. Who might have attacked Dr. Blake and Molly?

"Monster on the Campus" is a horror film from Universal with a story of the devolution of a man that turns into a caveman. The plot has many similarities with "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and the conclusion recalls "The Beauty and the Beast", but the film is highly entertaining. My vote is seven.

Lame Conclusion for an Entertaining B-Movie
17 September 2018
"The Mole People" is another underrated black-and-white B-movie from the 50´s. The story of archaeologists that discover an ancient underground society in Asia is entertaining but unfortunately the rushed conclusion is lame and gives the sensation that the budget ended and the film had to be interrupted. The beauty of Cynthia Patrick is still impressive in the present days. My vote is five.

Ocean's Eight (2018)
6/10
Exhausted Franchise
16 September 2018
During more than five years imprisoned framed by her boyfriend, the con woman Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) plots a scheme to heist the US$150 million Cartier necklace Toussaint from the Met Gala. She is released on probation and meets her former partner Lou (Cate Blanchett) and together they recruit a team of hacker, thieves, forger and swindlers to steal the necklace.

"Ocean´s Eight" is another film of the exhausted franchise "Ocean´s Something" with famous cast and cameos. The predictable brainless story has plot holes and is reasonably entertaining. Further, it helps to sleep. My vote is six.

Killing to Keep Youth
15 September 2018
When the 140 year-old Malla (Estelle Hemsley) visits the endocrinologist Dr. Paul Talbot (Phillip Terry), she asks him to pay a trip to Africa for her. In return, she would give the secret of the eternal youth from her Nando tribe to him. Dr. Talbot accepts the offer and then he decides to travel to Africa with his estranged wife June Talbot (Coleen Gray), who lost her beauty with the age and has become a bitter alcoholic woman. They witness the secret of the Nando and when June learns that her husband brought her to be his guinea pig, she kills him and returns to the United States with the powder and the ring to keep her youth. Now she becomes addicted to be young but the price to pay is too high.

"The Leech Woman" is an American horror movie with the story of a woman capable to kill to keep her lost youth. The screenplay is messy and does not develop well the lead characters but the film is an entertaining and worthwhile watching B-movie. My vote is six.

Weird but Worthwhile Watching
15 September 2018
The boy Jacob Felsen (Luke Prael) lives with his mother and stepfather and has frequent nightmares. He is bullied at school and when his unknown grandmother dies, Jacob attends the funeral and becomes attracted to her, wearing her clothes and listening to her records. When his stepfather sees Jacob wearing his grandmother dress, his wife and him decide to send Jacob to a boarding school for outcasts and misfits in a creepy mansion in the middle of nowhere. Jacob is introduced to the principal and teacher, Dr. Sherman (Will Patton) and his wife Mrs. Sherman (Tammy Blanchard), and soon he meets his six other mates. Along the days, Jacob befriends them and together with the young Christine (Sterling Jerins), they note that something strange is happening in the school. What will they do to survive?

'Boarding School" is a weird but worthwhile watching psychological horror film. The locations are creepy and the young cast has great performance. The pace is slow but builds tension and the last minutes are intense with many plot points. The conclusion is great. My vote is six.

The Starving Praying Mantis
12 September 2018
When a military outpost and an airplane in Artic are destroyed, the investigation finds a mysterious object near the crashed airplane. The scientists advise that the famous paleontologist Dr. Nedrick Jackson (William Hopper) should give his opinion and he identifies as part of a spur of the leg of a giant insect. Soon Dr. Jackson and the military discover that a mantis is the responsible for the attacks and is heading to Washington.

"The Deadly Mantis" is an entertaining and funny movie released by Universal with a giant praying mantis that awakes with hunger and frightens the population. The special effects may be lame in 2018, but they were top-notch in 1957. The good guys are military, still a reflex of the WWII and the romantic conclusion was sort of standard in those years. My vote is six.

The Lost World
12 September 2018
While in a military expedition to Antarctica by ship, helicopter pilot Lt. Jack Carmen (William Reynolds), mechanic Steve Miller (Phil Harvey) and civilian journalist Margaret "Maggie" Hathaway (Shawn Smith) travel to investigate a mysterious oasis with hot water under the command of Commander Harold Roberts (Jock Mahoney). However a pterodactyl hits the helicopter and they are forced to land below the sea level on a foggy land with dinosaurs and other pre-historical animals and plants. Soon they stumble upon the lonely Dr. Carl Hunter (Henry Brandon), lost in another expedition twelve years ago. He offers a way out to the three military provided they leave Maggie with him. What will they do?

"The Land Unknown" is a dated black-and-white adventure with a group stranded in a pre-historical land with carnivorous plants, dinosaurs and pterodactyls. The film is entertaining and it seems that in 1947 was discovered warm water in Antarctica. The good guys are military, still a reflex of the WWII, and the lead actress has the usual female attitudes of the 50´s, fainting and screaming when in danger. My vote is six.

Terrible Thriller
9 September 2018
"What Keeps You Alive" is one of those low-budget thrillers supported by stupid decisions of one protagonist. The story is based on a lesbian couple (certainly to please the professional critics since there is no need to have female homosexuals in a role traditionally performed by a normal couple) that travel to a remote area to celebrate their first year together but one of them is a psychopath. The lame story has so many holes that could be compared to a Swiss cheese so flawed it is. The good thing is the performance of Hannah Emily Anderson, and that is all. My vote is three.

Skyscraper (2018)
7/10
The Towering Inferno with Die Hard
8 September 2018
"Skyscraper" is an action-disaster movie with a sort of combination of "The Towering Inferno" and "Die Hard". The screenplay does not develop the characters well but it is breathless with funny action scenes. It also good to see Neve Campbell performing a supporting character but with important participation despite the absolute lack of chemistry with Dwayne Johnson. The plot is absurd but it is a good to see an action film with this type of exaggeration. The extinguishing effect of CO2 is based on the principle of lowering the oxygen content in the air to a value at which the combustion process cannot be sustained. Therefore it is hilarious to see the characters surviving after the release of CO2. My vote is seven.

Blood Fest (2018)
6/10
Silly but Entertaining
7 September 2018
The teenager Sam (Seychelle Gabriel) has a deep trauma from his childhood since his mother was murdered by a maniac in the Halloween and his father, the psychiatrist Dr. Conway (Tate Donovan), killed the man in their house. Sam is a lover of horror films and has bought the ticket for the Blood Fest Festival with his friends Dax (Robbie Kay) and Krill (Jacob Batalon) that also love the genre. However, his father finds and destroys the ticket and Sam calls his friend, the wannabe actress Ashley (Barbara Dunkelman) that helps him to cross the gate of the festival field. When the festival begins, Sam, Dax and Krill learn that people are really killed by the maniacs and the gore is not fake. Now they need to find a way out of the festival to survive.

"Blood Fest" is a silly but entertaining comedy of horror, with a promising idea and an awful conclusion that wastes all the potential. The screenplay uses the clichés of the genre to build the plot that is cool. Unfortunately the motives for the blood shed are ridiculous. My vote is six.

Bad Samaritan (2018)
8/10
Surprisingly Great Thriller
5 September 2018
In Portland, the amateurish photographer Sean Falco (Robert Sheehan) works with his best friend Derek Sandoval (Kerry Condon) as valet at a fancy restaurant. His girlfriend Riley Seabrook (Jacqueline Byers) studies in a university and he is estranged of his stepfather. Sean and Derek are also smalltime burglars, stealing the houses of the costumers while they are eating in the restaurant. One day, the obnoxious client Cale Erendreich (David Tennant) arrives at the restaurant driving a Maserati and Sean drives his car back to his house using the computer and Derek watches Cale in the restaurant. While snooping around the house, Sean finds a locked room and when he opens the door, he stumbles upon a woman tied to a chair with chains and gagged. He unsuccessfully tries to release her but he is forced to return to the restaurant with the Maserati. Sean decides to call the police, but Cale lures the police officers and turns Sean´s life upside-down.

"Bad Samaritan" is a surprisingly great thriller despite the clichés, with a full of action cat-and-mouse game and well-developed characters. The performance of David Tennant and the beauty of Jacqueline Byers are other attractions of this film. The director Dean Devlin gives the right pace to the screenplay, keeping the tension to the very end. My vote is eight.

O Rastro (2017)
5/10
Could Have Been Better and Better
4 September 2018
In Rio de Janeiro, Dr. João (Rafael Cardoso) is happily married with the teacher Leila (Leandra Leal), who is pregnant, and has a bureaucratic work. João is assigned to secretly transfer the patients from an old hospital that is administrated by his friend Dr. Heitor (Jonas Bloch) and will be closedown permanently by the governor. João meets his former schoolmate Dr. Olivia (Cláudia Abreu) in the hospital and stumbles upon a girl in a bed that he promises to give assistance and treatment. After the troubled transference of the patients to another hospital, João looks for the girl but does not find her. He becomes obsessed to discover what happened to the girl and makes a tragic discovery.

"O Rastro" is an uneven supernatural Brazilian film that could have been better and better. The cinematography and art direction are excellent, using the location of an old wing of the bankrupted hospital Beneficência Portuguesa in creepy scenes. The cast is also great, with top-notch Brazilian actresses and actors. The storyline is reasonable and could have used ambiguity when João becomes obsessed to find the girl. Unfortunately the sound is awful and there is no subtitle to understand many inaudible dialogues. But the worst is the messy screenplay that entwines politics with supernatural and horror and never works. The poor development of unpleasant characters is also a weak point. In the end, "O Rastro" is a movie with great potential but absolutely forgettable. My vote is five.

Summer of 84 (2018)
7/10
Nostalgic and Creepy Thriller
3 September 2018
The fifteen year-old Davey (Graham Verchere) lives in the suburb with his parents and spends his vacation with his friends Eats (Judah Lewis), Woody (Caleb Emery) and Faraday (Cory Gruter-Andrew). He has a crush on his neighbor and friend Nikki Kaszuba (Tiera Skovbye), who was his babysitter when he was younger. One night, while playing with his friends, Davey sees a boy in the house of his neighbor, police officer Wayne Mackey (Rich Sommer). When he learns that the boy is missing and there is a serial-killer in their neighborhood, David suspects that Mackey is the serial-killer and decides to investigate his neighbor with his friends.

"Summer of 84" is a nostalgic and creepy thriller with many elements in common with "Stranger Things". The story takes place in the 80´s and there is a group of snoopy boys in a suburb that decides to investigate his neighbor. The screenplay is well constructed with a creepy and surprising plot point in the very end. My vote is seven.

Solace (II) (2015)
6/10
Weird but Watchable

"Solace" is a weird but watchable supernatural thriller. The good director and cast and the original storyline are the best this film can offer. Unfortunately the gloomy screenplay is messy and destroys the expectations of this forgettable movie. My vote is six.

Scary and Creepy
31 August 2018
The family of Rini (Tara Basro) is financially broken and she lives with her father (Bront Palarae), her mother (Ayu Laksmi) that is ill, her grandmother (Elly D. Luthan) that is crippled, and her brothers Tony (Endy Arfian), Bondi (Nasar Annuz) and the mute six year-old Ian (M. Adhiyat) in an old house in the countryside nearby a cemetery. Her mother, who was a successful singer, is dying from a mysterious disease and her father does not have money to support the family. When her mother dies, her father needs to travel to the city to sell the house and weird things happen in the house. The skeptical Rini befriends Hendra (Dimas Aditya), son of the religious Ustadz (Arswendi Nasution), and they learn that her mother was infertile and joined a cult that worships Satan to have children. And now, when Ian will be seven, they will take the boy with them. What can they do to protect Ian?

"Pengabdi Setan", a.k.a. "Satan´s Slaves", is a scary and creepy Indonesian-South Korean horror film. The storyline of a cult of infertile women that worships Satan slightly recalls "Rosemary´s Baby" and has flaws, but the movie makes the viewer startle in many scenes. The acting is also reasonable and does not disappoint. My vote is seven.

The Curse of the Cobra
30 August 2018
In Asia, six airmen from the American Air Forces break in a secret cult of Lamians that worship a cobra goddess. However they are found in the temple and need to flee from the ceremony. They are cursed by the priest that sentences them to die, one by one. Back in New York, Sergeant Paul Able (Richard Long), who will marry the actress Julia Thompson (Kathleen Hughes), and G.I. Tom Markel (Marshall Thompson), who also loves Julia, are best friends and roommates. When Tom stumbles upon the mysterious Lisa Moya (Faith Domergue), they immediately fall in love with each other. Meanwhile their friends are dying and soon the coroner discovers snake venom in their blood.

"Cult of the Cobra" is an entertaining horror film with the storyline of a group of arrogant American G.I.s that breaks in a cult without any respect and are cursed by the priest to die. The gorgeous and exotic Faith Domergue is a goddess with the ability of turning into a cobra that travels to New York to revenge the worshippers. The negative point of the story is that she falls in love with one of the trespassers. My vote is seven.

Dr. Cyclops (1940)
7/10
Impressive Special Effects and Sets
30 August 2018
After killing his assistant Dr. Mendoza (Paul Fix), the insane Dr. Thorkel (Albert Dekker) summons the biologists Dr. Bulfinch (Charles Halton) and Dr. Mary Robinson (Janice Logan) to meet him in a remote area in the jungle of Peru. They travel with the mineralogist Bill Stockton (Thomas Coley) in mules owned by Steve Baker (Victor Kilian) that insists to go with them. After the long journey, Dr. Thorkel asks them to help him to identify a sample in a microscope and after receiving the answer, he thanks the support of his colleagues and say farewell to them. They decide to stay and find that there is a uranium mine in the spot. Further, they break in Thorkel´s laboratory to snoop into his research. Thorkel lures the group and locks them and his servant Pedro (Frank Yaconelli) in a room with an apparatus developed by him. He activates the device and shrinks the group that flees from him. Now Dr. Thorkel hunts them down.

"Dr. Cyclops" is a 1940 horror film with impressive special effects and sets. The story of a mad scientist that shrinks people when he feels threatened by them is funny. However the screenplay and edition have many flaws, such as the color of the miniature people clothes that change from white to different colors. The famous Dr. Bulfinch and Pedro are murdered by Dr. Thorkel but everybody seems to have forgotten in the end. My vote is seven.

The Return of General Hammond
27 August 2018
Daniel Jackson tries to convince the reluctant Jack to let him go to Atlantis. Out of the blue, General Hammond arrives at the SGC and invites Daniel to travel with him to Atlantis in the Prometheus. Along their journey, they receive a distress signal from an abandoned Alkesh starship and General Hammond decides to investigate. However they are subdue by a warrior that hijacks Prometheus and leave Hammond and his crew in the damaged Alkesh ship. However Daniel stays in Prometheus and tries to take control back from the invader. But he has a great surprise.

"Prometheus Unbound" is a funny and full of action episode of "Stargate SG-1" that introduces a new character, Vala Mal Doran. It is also great the return of General Hammond with an important participation in the show. Looking forward to see the skilled Vala again. My vote is eight.

Naiveness

The SGC is contacted by Carter´s replicator created by Fifth and she discloses that Fifth is coming to invade Earth. She also requests to be destroyed by the disruptor and explains that Fifth has found a means to neutralize its effect. Sam proposes a meeting at Alpha base with the replicator and Teal´c. Sam is convinced that the replicator wants to help her to improve the weapon to destroy Fifth and they work together is a new software. Soon Sam learns the real agenda of the replicator.

"Gemini" is a good episode of "Stargate SG-1" despite Sam´s naiveness. It is hard to believe that the experienced member of the SGC delivers the secret of the only means of defending Earth from the replicators to an enemy expecting support. My vote is eight.

Terrible Amateurish Movie
27 August 2018
The terrible amateurish "Enter the Wild" is one of those overrated movies in IMDb with the wrong genre (horror?). The storyline is awful with a screenplay that does not develop the unpleasant characters and uses the most absurd situations and dialogues. The pace is inadequate and boring, and the dismal camera framework is ridiculous, cutting the heads of the characters in every close-up. The cinematography and locations are also very poor. It is funny to see the gorgeous Ella Scott Lynch wearing mini-skirt in the wild and changing clothes many times along their journey. Watching this movie is a complete waste of time. My vote is two.

Upgrade (2018)
9/10
Excellent Australian Sci-Fi
26 August 2018
In the future, the mechanic Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green) is happily married with his wife Asha (Melanie Vallejo), who works in a state-of-art technology company. Grey fixes and sells old cars without electronic devices and does not like state-of-art electronic technology. When he sells a car to the genius Eron Keen (Harrison Gilbertson), who owns the most advanced technology company, Grey brings Asha to introduce her to Eron that shows a chip capable to do anything he has just developed. On their way back home, Asha´s car has an electronic breakdown and they have an accident. Soon four men subdue and shot them, killing Asha and leaving Grey tetraplegic. When Eron comes to the hospital to visit Grey, he offers the chip called Stem to be secretly implanted in Grey to give his motion back. Grey accepts and learns the others abilities of Stem. Now he decides to hunt down the criminals that killed his beloved wife.

"Upgrade" is an excellent Australian sci-fi and maybe the best one released this year. Despite the low-budget (five million-dollar only), the film has top-notch storyline, screenplay, direction and performances and great special effects used only when necessary. The film is full of action and the plot point in the end surprises. This is the type of movie that deserves a sequel. My vote is nine.
