Classic black comedy has the blues
DAILY Screens  December 8, 2017, by Raoul Hernandez
"...The sequence in which Frances Lee McCain as Billy’s mother in the Peltzer house by herself once the gremlins have hatched from Alien-like egg cones elicited shrieks of giddy fright in the theatre, Johnny Mathis’ velvet “Do You Hear What I Hear?” accompanying her downstairs as she wields a carving knife. Her life-and-death roll in the family Christmas tree ends in a graceful beheading originally hers in Columbus’ script..."

White House Down
Roland Emmerich blows up the White House real good, so who cares if it doesn't all compute when you have Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as an Obama-ish prez) battling to become last men standing?
Film Review  June 28, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Roland Emmerich sure has an edifice complex: The filmmaker who severed the Statue of Liberty in The Day After Tomorrow, laid waste to Manhattan in Godzilla, and dive-bombed the White House in Independence Day is back for another shot at the White House. Following Olympus Has Fallen, White House Down is the second movie this year that has as its premise the takeover and destruction of the White House – and the similarities don’t end there..."

Monster House
This animated tale of a carnivorous, haunted house and the band of neighborhood kids who decide to put it out of commission feels maddeningly unfinished.
Film Review  July 21, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...Directed by: Gil Kenan. Equal parts Ray Bradbury and rickety carnival spook show, this animated tale of a carnivorous, haunted house and the band of neighborhood kids who decide to put it out of commission feels maddeningly unfinished, as though it were tinkered with in postproduction, rejiggered unnecessarily, and finally let loose during the entirely inappropriate summer months, when, as any kid worth his or her pile of Fangorias (or any adult worth his or her collection of Famous Monsters of Filmland) could tell you, it ought to be arriving on All Hallows Eve..."

Food Column  December 13, 2018, by Emily Beyda
"...There are just so many people. And all those people have needs, which may or may not conflict with your own – the cups of coffee they might leave scattered throughout your house like Hansel and Gretel and their breadcrumbs; their tendency to hog the best parts of the newspaper; the special way they leave the volume on when typing on their cell phones; the forever-lingering, strongly scented perfumes – individual quirks that, while harmless or even charming on their own, are panic-inducing when taken in aggregate..."

Directed by series vet Tommy Schlamme and written by Aaron Sorkin (story by Peter Parnell), “Noël” moves between two timelines, neatly threading together a series of triggers – an incident with a suicidal pilot, bagpipes, Bach’s “Cello Suite No.1 in G Major” – that escalate the undiagnosed PTSD of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman (Bradley Whitford)...."
