Antebellum Alluc (2020)
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Release: September 18, 2020
Extraordinary Breastfeeding is a one-off documentary that looked at parents who breast feed past the age of two; not many UK women breastfeed past this age. The programme was billed as a sensitive portrayal of breastfeeding older children and it was, it also attracted a few complaints due to it showing children aged up to around 8 being breastfed which unsurprisingly viewers found disgusting.
The documentary follows various women, their partners (if they have them) and their children on their breastfeeding routine. This includes one mother who is trying to ween her child off breastfeeding, a single mother who set up a breastfeeding support group and some older children who are still breastfed. There were some moments I found quite funny: a public breastfeeding publicity photograph in a Blackburn shopping centre Which unsurprisingly got comments like "I think it's disgusting"; the filmmakers were probably hoping for this reaction and a father who says he's slightly jealous because he likes to be breastfed by his wife as well!
The subject is quite interesting and is rarely covered if at all. Behind all the (unexpected) controversy and the slightly disturbing tone of the documentary it is just another documentary. It's still worth watching, especially if the subject appeals to you or if you want to see what the fuss was about.

The Secrets We Keep Alluc (2020)
Genre: Drama, Thriller
Release: September 16, 2020
Alluc The Secrets We Keep
I wouldn't normally bother inflicting my opinion on others via this database. However, I felt compelled to re-iterate all the positive reviews and comments I've seen here and elsewhere for this truly wonderful film.
I was lucky enough to be given a free ticket for the BFI Festival viewing last Tuesday. A wonderful woman (now known as Lily) collared me in the queue for tickets and generously offered me a spare.
We sat down and I knew things were looking good when the cast were introduced but eschewed the usual Q&A session by quickly introducing themselves and asking us to simply enjoy the film adding that if anyone had any questions at the end they'd be milling around for a chat.
Anyway, enough of the preamble, to the film - it's an exemplary piece of work beautifully encapsulating the feelings of the eighties. The avarice of that time (both political and economic) juxtaposed against the heightened sense of revolt against a Thatcherite government that truly didn't seem to give a toss about anyone who wasn't on the gravy train.
The script is razor sharp and the acting excellent! I'm not going to waste your time reviewing it but I will say, please go and see it for yourself (especially if you were growing up during the eighties)...
You'll be rewarded with a superb soundtrack, laughter, sadness and at times real, palpable, tension.

The Devil All the Time Alluc (2020)
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Release: September 16, 2020
Alluc The Devil All the Time
It's too bad that more people haven't seen this, then Hellspawn would be the KING of the bottom 100 list for all eternity.
The previous commentary was right on the money (kudos to the previous critic :) ) This movie is wretchedly shot on video with no sense of editing, lighting or cinematography. It really looks like low budget video about a confusing, nonsensical story about some sort of "demon" (some guy in a rubber mask and a BRIGHT red plaid flannel shirt, going around supposedly killing people. The kills are worse than something a junior high schooler film student would throw together in an evening. Since the movie makes absolutely NO SENSE, I will point out the parts which are so bad ... well ... they are just BAD....
The sound recording of the two LEAD ACTORS was completely off, so whenever they speak, the gain is pushed WAY UP, so you hear them talking muffled in the background, completely distorted with a huge 'hum' as the editor tries to allow us to hear what they are saying. But it's inconsistent, so you hear a huge HUM and distorted audio ONLY when the two lead actors are talking and nowhere else. Distracting eh? The monster walks around in 'monstervision', i.e. the video image is post processed to look 'negative' and 'solarized', but the gimmick goes on for way too long. The filmmakers were so proud of this cheesy video effect, they stretched it on and on, ad nauseum. The monster's P.O.V. shots goes on and on with a 'clawed hand' pawing at the sofa ("oooooh! Scary!") and at the clock on the wall ("oooooh! Scary!") and at the telephone ("oooooh! Scary!") and at the stairs ("oooooh! Scary!"), you get the picture. What kind of monster pokes his hand at EVERY mundane item in a room before they walk into the NEXT ROOM! It makes no sense and gets irritating really fast.
This next bit is so bad IT'S HILARIOUS .... Apparently the director was too cheap or lame to hire a REAL woman to do the bath scene (where the so called FEMALE victim is stalked by the monster), so he does it HIMSELF! You hear a woman humming, getting ready for the bath, but as far as this 'nude scene', you only see disembodied shots of hands soaping up and legs being washed .... and they all obviously ... belong to a guy!! I kid you not! They're massive and hairy! UGH!! You never see the woman who is killed, only a dime store skull covered with blood and a Offscreen (sound effect) woman's scream. Only a KID in junior high would try to pull THIS stunt, seriously.
The car interior shots are done with a Home Depot lamp with tons of green light bulbs. So the heroes are blasted with an eerie green light under their chins like an old monster movie. Why doesn't everyone have green light blasting from their car interiors? This was shot in Tioga County, PA. There's some nice travelogue shots of the Tioga County courthouse ... hey there IS something worthwhile seeing in this piece of crap! ;) A parting note: SPOILER (but I doubt it) A character at the end has a massive cemetery tombstone, but his friend still has fresh cuts and bruises from the incident that caused this character's demise, so I assume that they can make large granite custom tombstones within 48 hours? For a character who's a trailer trash nobody? I can't believe I bought this movie from a large electronics/Video store chain. It's like buying a DVD from your eleven year old neighbor.

Alluc The Garden Left Behind
I remember seeing this film when I was young. It was being aired on cable, when it first came out. This was great because it was the un-cut version. I somehow was able to get a copy of this when it was aired on late night TV some years ago. I still have the copy with commercials (edited for television). I would like to get the full version. This film had some unforgettable scenes. I have to say that it turned me on to women in the martial arts.

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Release: September 25, 2020
First off I'd like to start off by saying: I love this show very much! I definitely relate to this show very much and I really hope it doesn't get cancelled anytime soon. I have had many family members that have gone through the same 'experience & pain' if you will and that is why I feel that I relate to the show very strongly. It definitely helps a lot and I'm sure there are many 'Viewers' out there who feel the same way and have gone through the same thing. This is no longer just a 'T.V. show' but a way of 'life' i'm sure it has been helping others just as well as me. I hope to see a (season 2) and more! 100/100 10/10 1/1. Hands down one of the best shows of 2016.

After We Collided Alluc (2020)
Genre: Drama, Romance
Release: October 2, 2020
Alluc After We Collided
To be fair, this has not been a bad show. But it hasn't been a revelation either.
It promised universally attractive topics, such as "obsessed justice champion versus charismatic winner bad-ass"; a man-to-man frantic chase; traitors, moles and secrets; tons of money, tons of power; how the richest live, and so on.
It promised an initially attractive cast, with both Lewis and Giammati being proved actors.
But on watching the first season I have found some disappointing issues.
First of all, the story is laden with clichés, such as "even the good guys have dirty secrets", justice overpowered by money, a too stereotypical portrait of the financial hedge-fund world, informants and lawyer maneuvering, and the like.
Both leading actors overact their parts. This has been a bit of a turn-off to me.
There are credibility issues all along the script. Financial decisions, psychological interventions and judiciary processes do not proceed as they are portrayed here.
Even if you consent to believe that a US attorney-general and his therapist wife will work for adversary parts and the world will swallow that as a matter-of-fact, non conflicting reality (nah--), there is no credible way in which a wife and a husband serving opposite masters will share their work-computer passwords. Never at such a high level of professional expertise.
Also, Showtime executives have a tendency to force-feed sexual kinkiness or perversion in most of their shows, which I find somehow cheap and diminishing to the viewers. It feels as if everything coming from them will include some degree of transplanted sexual extravaganza, no matter if it is a ballet TV show, a Miami mafia story or "Billions".
More importantly, if the subject was hedge funds operations, the whole thing was quite trivialized as a shallow business.
In 2014-2015, while the show was under development, a breakthrough UN resolution was taken to condemn hedge funds interventions in sovereign debt transactions all over the world.
Billions could have taken a perfect chance to highlight the issue, unveiling international politics; US judiciary ruling in the clash between nations and hedge funds, and truly relevant ethical crimes in the financial global world.
But both the chance and the perfect timing were completely missed. It was all about not paying taxes, pharma inside trading and bribing policemen. How disappointing in terms of the true state-of-affairs!
I think the show should aim higher in terms of depth, tone down the performances of the actors, and work harder to make situations credible, if it is to improve in a second season and make it as a first-rate series.

Tenet Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi
Release: September 3, 2020
In Name Only (1939)
I thought I had seen pretty much every Cary Grant movie but this one evaded me and it was a thrill to discover, right from his best early period stuff. And he's good, and the movie is good, a story of being trapped in a bad marriage and then finding the right girl. And having your wife connive and become almost murderous to keep the marriage from ending.
It's all about money, too, since Grant plays a wealthy young man. So his wife, played with utter, awful precision by Kay Francis, has her eye on the dollar as she sees him begin to stray. The new woman is a restrained Carole Lombard, who is lovable and sincere, even after it becomes clear that Grant will never get free of his wife. It's all drama, not quite soap opera, and it's convincing enough to work. Grant has some moments where he has to act with some deeper richness, not his strong point, but he hangs in there (especially if you are predisposed to liking him). But Lombard and Francis are pitch perfect, and if quite the opposites, equally so.
Director John Cromwell had just directed Lombard in "Made for Each Other" (with Jimmy Stewart) and he has a way of bringing her out. This one is a better film, however, I think, so if you liked that other one, give this a look. Grant just filmed "Bringing up Baby" and is at the height of his lovable comic career. This would be his only film with Lombard, who actually might have been a good match in a lighter, wittier movie.
Expect nothing less than a fast, smartly written, involving drama.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Release: February 28, 2020
Lazy, stupid, uninspired, these are a few things to describe "Dawn of the Croods". Based off of a decent 3D animated cartoon, 'The Croods', the television excursion of the franchise offers none of the heart, soul or even animation from it's predecessor.

Alluc The New Mutants
Mannix was one of the top private eye shows of all time. Mike Connors did a great job in the role, and the writers always strove for creative plots that stretched the genre.
It was a rare series that never got old. The last few shows in the series were as good as the first few shows.
In the first season, Mannix worked for a high tech agency, and was the maverick among their investigators.
They decided to move him out on his own, which eliminated some very interesting character struggles, but also introduced the wonderful Gail Fisher as his secretary, Peggy. She was worth losing the Intertec character conflict.

Alluc Still Here
This could have been such a much better movie in much more capable hands. But it's too obvious this was done on a shoestring budget--I take that back--shoestrings are more expensive than that. Grainy, dark film quality does NOT make for an eerie atmosphere--in fact, it's downright annoying. Especially when you can't understand 90% of the dialogue, and what you can hear is the same lines over and over. Put these in Memorable Quotes: "What, no kiss goodbye?" "You're home early." "Do you still love me?" And put "repeated line" over each one. That's pretty much it for the only female in the movie. And the plot has one major hole: how does the lead male become a zombie? I can understand the others, but it's like he just woke up from his "zombie dream" and decided to start eating people--he never died! Too bad, so sad, I'm glad it was a free rental. Remember, folks, a good plot is a terrible thing to waste.

Although I vaguely remember this from the 90s,I saw this show properly for the first time the other day (bought Series 1 DVD). Essentially it depicts the lives of 2 divorcees trying to start a new romance together, despite constant distractions from his ex-wife + her teenage children.
Although the humour is feeble, obsolete even,the show is nonetheless quite substantial simply for 2 reasons:-
1) The actors - 2point4 Children's Belinda Lang plays the ex-wife, and the (back then) really cute Julia Sawalha,of Absolutely Fabulous and Press Gang fame,plays the teenage daughter.
2) The archetypal early 90s British setting; the show is a nostalgic trip into the modest mums, baggy/black-clad teens and horrendous suburban wallpapers of the day!
Second rate by all means; while the BBC had all the essential comedy classics, perhaps ITV intended to spare a weekly slot for such mediocrity. That said, I will give it 6/10 simply for the established actors and the kitsch-yet-classy early 90s cultural setting.

Rogue Alluc (2020)
Release: August 28, 2020
This is truly an excellent film. It has everything-comedy, drama, tragedy and a vision of what the world was like in 1942.
Let's remember that when the movie was probably being made, the U.S. had not entered the war as yet.
It deals with a Brooklyn stripper from Parkside Ave. who lives in 1938 Austria and is about to be married to a high-ranking Nazi. Given her supposed limited intelligence, Ginger Rogers, as this gal, doesn't fully realize what she is getting into. She will be quickly educated by reporter Cary Grant, who is terrific in this role.
Walter Slezak plays the heavy in the film and at first is successful in having Ms. Rogers believe that he is an anti-Nazi. No matter where the couple show up, the country soon falls victim to the Nazi terror.
The plight of the Jewish people is shown by a maid and her 2 young children, all being Jewish, is helped by Rogers. The maid comes back later on to play a pivotal role when Rogers needs to escape. There is a scene where condemned Jews recite a Jewish prayer. How much more poignant can you get?
There is constant intrigue in this film as you begin to wonder the true beliefs of someone who is helping Rogers, while getting her to spy for the allies.
The ending may have been somewhat over-the-top, but it did provide for some comic relief to a subject that was very well handled here.

Greenland Alluc (2020)
Genre: Action, Thriller
Release: September 25, 2020
Fascinating, to see so starkly one man's talents (Ray McKinnon) and faults on display, like the chipped old rhinestone engagement solitaire my dead granny handed me just before she gave up the ghost beneath that faded quilt she made for her sister Lula Mae when they shipped her off to that place for people teched in the haid, while autumn leaves of red and gold fell to earth outside the shack where she fixed possum and dressin' fer Thanksgivin' back in the holler and winter crawled in like a blind old moonshiner breathin' his last wasted breath.
McKinnon, here, cain't write too good. He can act (his "Snake" is the best and most electrifying thing in the film). He can direct; but so can loads of TV soap opera folks. His cinematographer (Myron Kerstein) is good. His actors do the best they can with this material (except Grace Zabriskie, who's supposed to be comedy relief except when she's supposed to be waxing wise and in any case seems to be channeling Rue McClanahan's Blanche from "Golden Girls," without benefit of that show's polished dialogue).
The script's the problem. One wants to empathize with these people. ANY of them. One waits, and waits, as things get worse and worse and the lines more smarmy and sentimental and unbelievable. But there's no one to care about or root for as the dialogue ricochets between pseudo-hard-boiled hillbilly and pseudo-Tennessee-Williams poetic.
So out of synch with reality are the words and situations that one laughs uncontrollaby and / or shakes one's head at all the wrong moments that keep piling up like Momma's mulch in the compost heap by the outhouse . . . .
Until Chrystal's supposedly moving reveal about her granny telling her, when a girl, that if she listens she can hear the flowers grow and now that she's a far-gone nutty self-pitying self-destructive backwoods drama queen she CAN hear 'em growin'.
Then Billy Bob Thornton shows back up in grizzled Howard-Hughes-near-the-end makeup and a filthy foot-long beard, with a kidnapped infant to replace the child he and Chrystal lost in the clumsily-shot no-budget opening accident sequence, before getting predictably killed by the cops in the squad-car headlights outside and Chrystal (as in Snake's meth? It's that kind of symbolism) marries the widower Good Cop, presumably finds redemption and some common sense, and the cop's little daughter by his dead wife climbs the artistic / symbolic welded sculpture Billy Bob topped off with a tricycle and sits there pedaling toward nowhere fifteen feet off the ground (like this film) and smiles wistfully, trying to jerk some genuine emotion from an audience searching vainly for any shred of meaning or reason-for-being in this pretentious vanity production, and credits roll while we (I could swear, y'all) hear flowers growing under the soundtrack and our tired behinds ache for sweet freedom.

Unhinged Alluc (2020)
Release: August 21, 2020
Pece Dingo's MIDNIGHT CABARET reveals it's hand early when the fragrant, shaggable damsel at the focus of it's "story" (Lara Harrington, looking fresh), a struggling actress named Tanya, finds herself thrust into a nightmare vision where she is pursued through a Gothic, fashionable Los Angeles by a straight edge razor wielding vampire whom she had witnessed feeding off another hunk in a downright sexual manner. He is stark naked, with plenty of rump shots as he scuttles up various staircases in pursuit of her nightie-clad, rain dampened body. Either the film is gay, or it's for the ladies, which turns out to be the case by the second reel when we get to see her apartment. It isn't a living space for a struggling actress, it's a stylistic flourish dream pad that Mies Van Der Rohe would have had trouble paying the rent on.
The premise for the film is actually interesting: A super high-class nightclub/cabaret type of hotspot staging neo-Grand Guginol type performances which blur the line between reality and dreams. Are the performances for real or imaginary? The answer seems to be yes, they are both. Everyone has perfect clothes, perfect hair, plenty of cigarettes, and behave as though they were in a Duran Duran music video. Which makes sense given the presence of lead actor Michael Des Barres, who fronted a Duran Duran spin off band during the 1980s. He glowers under his highly stylized hairdo, rasping in a mid Atlantic half-British accent while intoning the Prince of Darkness, ironically clad in a perfect white suit. His stage MC evokes a pre-heroin Boy George, and everyone in the cast is apparently on the verge sleeping together in the most casual of ways.
Slowly the dream imagery of the stage plays begins to spill over into Tanya's fashionable life as she finds herself plagued by aspiring rapists or hunky suitors who seem more interested in how they are being lit than actually getting away with anything. Even the film's would-be heroic cop, trying to get to the bottom of things after some untimely deaths, swaggers through the frame in a $1500 knee length designer jacket while wafting cigarette smoke through the diffused lighting. Is he a real person or a functionary of her dream? The film seems more interested in making us wonder if he'd be a good kisser more than how he pays for his wardrobe. The fact that he never bothers to read the lass her rights even when interrogating her over the coincidental murders of everyone close to her suggest that he's either inept or simply hot for a date.
The film gets one thing right which is putting the viewer into a state of confusion over whether what we are watching is supposed to be part of the nightclub act or reality, no easy feat since Ms. Harrington spends an awful lot of time running blindly down empty city blocks while always managing to look freshly showered. The story becomes secondary to the imagery, which has more in common with a Nagel print than it does a standard horror movie, with the complete absence of exploitational female nudity eventually giving the film's agenda away, which is to be respectable at all costs. Even when the characters are having sex the film manages to avoid being sleazy or voyeuristic. Here at last is a horror movie for couples, where all the guys are sensitive minded beefcake and all of the women are resourceful, quick witted, and have fantastic apartments. Nobody seems to have a job or need money, people speak in hushed stage whispers or listen in turn attentively, and hot chicks don't mind having 2nd hand smoke blown in their faces because the smokers all look so great.
In other words I'm not the person to be reviewing this film. It's poised, dramatic sensibilities are wasted on me and will find their most appreciating audiences in fashion minded females in their mid 30s who still go nightclubbing & are nostalgic for the 1990s. Guys watching this will feel under-dressed and somewhat at a loss for what to say, other than perhaps asking "So when do we get to see her tits?" You never do, but afterward you might just find yourself in the mood for a cup of International House French Vanilla coffee. And a cigarette.

Alluc The Burnt Orange Heresy
A show with the main cast almost completely women, working in a traditionally female career - and behaving like stereotypical women. I admit that I laughed once, but mostly I was disgusted. It's ironic that gender equality ideals like co-ed bathrooms are referenced, because this show is working to propagate traditional gender roles. If this kind of thing isn't a big deal to you, you might find this show mildly amusing, but I can't see past the in-your-face cultural undertones. In other words, this show is politically charged - if you are pretty conservative, you may like it, but if you are liberal, you will probably hate it.

Directors usually have the freedom to change topics and styles. But what is this??
If it's trying to sneak into the world of fashion and other trivial consumerism, I don't think it get it at all. And if if it's supposed to be a protest about the triviality apocalypse we're heading, it didn't make it either. Don't bother to watch if you expect something on the style of Sally Potter.
