The Secret Life of the American Teenager
(2008)

Excellent
It's always great to come upon a show you missed the first time around and have 120 episodes ahead of you. From episode one I can tel this more than the run of the mill high school show and it's not shock value filled like a lot of modern day offerings. Shailene Woodley has gone on to become a fine actress and she's excellent here. It's also great to see Molly Ringwald in the genre she become an Icon for.

Fourteen
(2019)

Disappointing
I don't like to be critical of independent film because I admire the DIY approach to art. This film suffers from a dreary palate (digital) and rough sound. The actors all sound like they're reading lines. The budget is listed at 95,000 which seems high for what's on the screen. If they said it was made for 3,000 I would believe it. As for the story there isn't much of one or characters that are interesting or charismatic.

The White Lotus
(2021)

Comedy?
Alexandria DAdarrio is great but it's so boring and definitely not a comedy or a drama. I don't know what to call it.

Mare of Easttown
(2021)

7 hours of unpleasantness
Yeah it's a great acting showcase but it's so relentlessly grim. I don't understand how anyone would want to sit through this.

No Strings the Movie
(2021)

Amateur hour
This films looks like it was shot on a budget of about 3 dollars.

CBGB
(2013)

They get it all wrong
Patrice Smith sings Because the Night which was written for her after she was already famous l. Talking Heads perform Psycho Killer which was a later hit. Talk about pastiche. This movie is aggravating.

Gotti
(1996)

Top 5 Mob Movie
Armand Assante and Anthony Quinn give a masterclass in acting here. A truly underrated film.

Donny's Bar Mitzvah
(2021)

Hysterical
One of the funniest films I e seen in a long time!

Sweet Dreams
(1985)

If you're a fan of the music skip it
I wish that when they make a film about a great record instead they make it about the music instead of wallowing in the domestic troubles in their life.

The High Note
(2020)

The high note was the closing credits
Enough with the pop culture conversations. We get it: you grew up in America. One day Don Johnson's daughter will be casted along side a con star she has chemistry with. To date it hasn't happened. Oh yeah and the songs are not good.

Conflicted
(2021)

Solid
Dope Ass Hood Flick for 2021. For fans of the genre.

Bridge and Tunnel
(2021)

Really, really, really, really bad
Words can't explain how bad this show is. It needs to be experienced

A Teacher
(2020)

Agenda pushing
I honestly don't see what the conflict is since the boy is 18 and the teacher is only a few years older. Same scenario on Pretty Little Liars wasn't so melodramatic. Sure the teacher should be fired but she's no criminal.

Thunderbolt in Mine Eye
(2020)

Sweet coming of age film
Really heartfelt and true to life. It's always nice when someone gets the pains and joys of adolescence right.

Shithouse
(2020)

Amazing debut
This film single handedly restored my faith in independent cinema. Don't let the title fool you it has a lot of heart and the lead actress is nothing short of a revelation.
