Movie Diary 9/16/2018

The Predator (Shane Black, 2018). Not exactly awful, but awfully outdated, this addition to the Predator universe is a real comedown from Black’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys. Among other things, this is a movie badly in need of some movie-star zip, an element that can’t be faked. I did enjoy the sign on the high-school greeting board: “Welcome Parents & Stds.”

Lizzie (Craig William Macneill, 2018). The Lizzie Borden case, given a speculative solution and a modern twist. Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart are devoted to the effort, and Jamey Sheridan and Denis O’Hare admirably fill the roles of male creep. (full review 9/21)
