Body Brokers   9/27/22
by JPRetana
This movie, come to think of it, never truly gets around to much of anything not even a proper conclusion; How do you end a never ending story?, Vin (Grillo, as reliable a performer and not-so-reliable a judge of scripts as ever) asks through the fourth wall.

Of Human Bondage   9/27/22
by JPRetana
Now, as mediocre and contemptible as Carey and Mildred are and they take mediocrity and contempt to heights, or rather lows, that arguably have yet to be matched almost a century later , there is a sort of astronomical fascination in watching them follow their preordained trajectories; theyre like ...

Arielle and Dean go into hiding, which leads to Arielle losing subscribers and followers.

Do Revenge   9/22/22
by JPRetana
Needless to say, nary an original thought went into making this movie.

Malcolm & Marie   9/22/22
by JPRetana
Since the cause of the rift between the protagonists is a movie (Malcolm is a director and screenwriter, and Marie is an aspiring actress; the action begins when they return home from the premiere of his latest film, which may or may not be based on them, adding an extra layer of meaning to the even...

Koko-di Koko-da   9/22/22

The movie is thankfully short (then again, any film that lacks a proper conclusion is bound to be brief), though thats damning faint praise considering it could stand to be a lot shorter.
