    Pixote

    ★★★★★

    Pixote belongs to a group of films about unwanted children who live on the streets due to poverty. Los Olividados (Mexico), Salaam Bombay (India) and Pixote (Brasil) are the most effective and brutal of this sub-genre. I'd also recommend Shoeshine (Italy) and the documentary Streetwise (USA). The kids in these movies create their own families and go back and forth between the streets and institutions that are sometime worse than the streets. Often their lives end in an early death.…

    25th Anniversary!

    She has her own bubble butt boyfriend Billy.

    That entire bathroom scene with the mean girls is hilarious. Scream is an endlessly quotable film written by Kevin Williamson at his peak combined with Wes Craven at his best makes for the iconic film that inspired so many others (they could never quite replicate the magic of Scream, including the sequels of said film).

    Justice for Rose McGowan. She’s not mentioned enough for giving such a delightfully spunky sexy and…

    Dear Evan Hansen

    ★★½

    Was not as bad as I was lead to believe. I wasn't familiar with the source material. It's not really my kind of movie but it made my 5 hour flight go by faster (watched on plane). As a fan of Law and Order: SVU, I was excited to see Danny Pino. His role was bigger than I expected and I thought he did a good job with the awkward material he was given.

    Copshop

    ★★★½

    Cop Shop is an entertaining old school game of cat and mouse that at times reminded me of Assault on Precent 13. I expected the focus to be on Gerard Butler and Frank Grillo but was pleasantly surprised that the hero is from an actress I've never seen. Alexis Louder plays Valerie, a cop caught in the middle of two scums. She's got great screen presence (she's in between the two touch guys on the poster) and increased my enjoyment.…

    The Harder They Fall

    ★★½

    The Good:
    As always LaKeith Stanfield. He's one of my favorite actors and looks great in cowboy getup. His line deliveries during an excellent train sequence made me smile and pay attention. Overall the cast is stellar. I wish the film matched their presence.

    The Bad:
    The story doesn't warrant a two hour plus running time. After being on board for the first 45 minutes or so I started to lose interest. There are scenes that might have hit more…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Don’t have time to write a long review. I definitely enjoyed it especially with an enthusiastic crowd. Melissa Berrera and Jenna Ortega are my favorites of the new characters. I also want to shout out Mikey Madison. She’s quite the character. It was a hoot seeing her in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, which I recently just rewatched, as one of the Manson psycho-killer girls and then seeing her all in black again here. What a way to die in two…
