Movie Reviews: Denial + The Big Short + Back To The Future III + Maternal Instinct

Denial (2016)

Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson star in this true story takedown of David Irving. A woman says criticism does not have to be listened to. Public intellectuals are always finding their way to the centre of dramatic moments. I question the value of this. There are conflicting moral values and exposition.


People have crazed looks in this oppressively boring movie. Irving files a libel suit (he did not learn from Oscar Wilde). This was generally awful and not fascinating or unsettling. Irving wields his corrosive power and is not thrillingly ghastly – he has a malign effect. The court has to acknowledge the unavoidable.


Diana is mentioned. Byzantine threads of deceit are alleged by Irving, when he is the one guilty of deceit. Irving has avoided a reckoning until now. He's a malign narcissist who wilfully malevolently vindictively lied. There is outlandish idiocy and Irving is cruelly, persistenly malign.


There is staunch and unyielding determinaiton. There is mundanity and emotionally worded speeches. This was remarkably self serious and portentous. The heroine, Deborah, is plaintive and accusatory. There is a pursuit of notoriety by Irving who has unthinkable callousness and insufferable pretension. How quickly Irving's success ended.


Deborah wants to stop Irving's creeping narrative of denial. This was not not a vivid warning. Irving loses his veneer of decency. There is seriousness of purpose and Deborah is a moral flagship. Irving loses the trial mostly by lying and representing himself.


Best Lines:

“Concerted worldwide conspriacy.”


“Brilliant maverick.”


“England's a club.”


“The price you pay for winning.”


“Coming for me.”


“Designated a pariah.”


“Motives for lying.”


“All kinds of assorted riff raff.”


“We've lived with worse.”


“Destroy the evidence of what they did here.”


“Oddly impressive.”


“You jog the same way every day. Don't.”


“Falling away from me.”

The Big Short (2015)

There is no unreasoning fear of going bust just greed in this incoherence.

Back To The Future III (1990)

This was not entirely likabale. Biff's ancestors have an aptitude for random violence. This film is a petty annoyance to the point of ridicule. There is screaming and exposition and why is Doc always hanging out with a teenage boy?!? This was not funny and it was a miserable existence. Clara's dumb and people put on silly accents and this was not an enduring draw.


Best Lines:

“Losing your judgement.”


“Clint Eastwood.”

“What kind of a stupid name is that?”

Maternal Instinct (2017)

A cop ends up with a teen who can't act due to a crime. This was dumb as hell.
