  • Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, 2019 - ★★½

    While Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark manages to keep an eerie tone and clean images, it never weaves itself a narrative build that an audience can care about. The short stories are disjointed in their connective tissue, don't have lasting consequence to the survivors, and are somewhat exhausting to sit thru. The political messages were some of the most unsubtle moral platitudes I've sat thru recently. I'm a bit flummoxed as to why Guillermo would serve as Screenwriter and Producer for a picture neither of his production companies are involved with. I'm curious if they just included him for the name recognition more than anything. I had 5 walk outs in the last 20 minutes of the film, that my friends is how ya know people don't give a F**K about your story.

  • Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, 2019 - ★★

    Occasionally pretty spooky, but it doesn’t gather any momentum and instead just hobbles from scare to scare with thematic signifiers indiscreetly stitched in and characterization that’s just plain boring along the way. As it turns into a lesson on the importance of disseminating the truth and setting historical records straight, there’s not enough narrative texture for the ideas to stick to. I liked the Pale Lady though, heart is for her!

  • Good Boys, 2019 - ★★½
    (”Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    Good Boys did earn quite a few laughs from me though they were often laughs I'd already had during the trailer. The melodrama felt particularly forced near the end. Looks like out of the two school coming of age comedies Booksmart is my favorite. There's only so much mature comedy you can deliver with child actor's, and much like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark you could feel them pulling back.

    Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
