    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019)

    This is a movie that has no reason for existing, IMHO. Breaking Bad was a great TV series, and it didn't need this tepid mediocre warmed up dog's breakfast. Should've just left Breaking Bad alone....

    Fair enough, Charles, you totally might be an excellent judge of the artistic potential of a script - after all, I don’t know you!

    Well, there are so called "actor's directors", a category of directors whose primary - or big - strength is working with actors and getting performances, so like, that's a thing. And I agree that it...

    Fine, we can call it "suspense" - although, c'mon, it's a "suspense" movie notably lacking in suspense, and by that measure fails at the most fundamental level - I mean, let us be real honest...

    Sorry, Cary, I didn't mean to convey that I classify Notorious as film noir - I don't. I expressed myself poorly. Here's what I meant - that the parlor room crime novel (and film) was a convention...

    Starring Sam Rockwell and William Macy:

    Nice premise, poor execution. Badly shot, bad pacing, iffy acting. Macy was excellent, but that's about the best...

    This is an excellent Japanese film, and a breath of fresh air:

    The Dead Don't Die (2019)

    Jim Jarmusch made the amazing "Stranger than Paradise" (1984) and the quite good "Down by Law" (1986) and then ran out of steam. And that's how we arrive at "The Dead Don't Die", a film that has no...
