Movie Reviews: Scanners + Black Panther + Mississippi Burning

Scanners (1981)

Michael Ironside stars in this David Cronenberg film. Creepy types provoke suspicion. There is hideous interior design and a mall and telepaths stare at each other. There is death and incoherence and a bus crashes into a vinyl shop. There are fire and gunshots and this was numbing and meaningless.


This is a cesspool of ambiguity. Under a surface of gentility and kindness, seethes a rage so palpable. This was full of peculiarities. There is a fake slap. Things inevitably explode and there are vengeful acts. There are revelations and a horrific ending and Patrick McGoohan. This has 4 sequels! 4!


Best Lines:

“Weapons capability.”


“Far in advance of ours.”


“A scanner underground.”


“All pathetic social misfits.”


“Why are you such a derelict? Such a piece of human junk?”


“Power of his will.”


“Police state tactics simply won't work.”


“Gesture of trust.”


“Never been one of them.”


“Sucking on my joy.”


“Unfriendly forces.”


“Relax. Read a magazine.”


“He died when you blew up his computer.”


“Allowed to live like garbage.”


“That was daddy.”

Black Panther (2018)

There is exposition, fake accents and T'Challa loses his throne. A baddie is named Ulysses Klaue. Martin Freeman and his horrendous US accent shows up. A hate filled fanatic ruins stuff. Ross gets shot and healed. This was melodramatic, mediorce and had bad acting.


Best Lines:

“2 Grace Jones looking chicks.”


“Arms dealer strapped to a chair.”


“I am requesting nothing!”


“Runs around in a bulletproof catsuit.”

Mississippi Burning (1988)

No.
