Provided the viewer is broad-minded enough not to be bothered by a nearly constant stream of profanity, "Strays" offers a kennel of off-color laughter.
"The Last Voyage of the Demeter" is a harrowing journey but, for those who appreciate horror, it is well worth taking.
Hopefully, this sequel will sink into the trench from whence it came and nothing else will surface in its wake.
Shines in its sly observances about Asian American cultural idiosyncrasies even though the overarching narrative at times feels derivative and uninspired.
It is uncompromising, both in the way it travels a seemingly inevitable trajectory and relies on practical effects to present gruesome imagery.
Not a bad movie but too long and lifeless for what amounts to a two-hour commercial for a three-minute ride.
A degree of unevenness is expected and that is what "Barbie" delivers: a delightful confection at its best, an unfocused jumble at its worst.
