It Happened at Lakewood Manor (1977)

An old-fashioned, lakeside hotel targeted for purchase by an unsavory gambling casino promoter and situated next to a construction site, is attacked by an army of poisonous ants.

God-awful TV horror production with below-average performances nothing more than crawling ants as killers; not even worth a laugh.

Lucille Ball

Something's Gotta Give (2003)

A swinger on the cusp of being a senior citizen with a taste for young women falls in love with an accomplished woman closer to his age.

Highly entertaining romantic comedy with the two leads obviously enjoying their job, although a bit too long and losing momentum towards the ending.

Halliwell*: "Overlong romantic comedy that begins well, but soon goes sitcom soggy; Nicholson resorts to his most familiar mannerisms, while Keaton's over-emotional performance makes one wish she'd act her age."

Maltin**: "Entertaining comedy for (and about) grown-ups with delightful performances by the two leads."

Dr. Lovell says I have writing talent, so I have to enter this stupid contest, so I'm stuck with a bunch of extra hours at the werp - and with my Full Adult exam less than six months away, too.

Cam (2018)

An ambitious camgirl, wakes up one day to discover she's been replaced on her show with an exact replica of herself.

Unusual thriller about the loss of identity is suspenseful despite a slack ending, but gives a realistic account of the camgirls' online work; and Madeline Brewer delivers a great lead performance.

New Stuff: Interpol

Isabelle Mathers

Outlaw King (2018)

A true David vs. Goliath story of how the 14th century Scottish 'Outlaw King' Robert the Bruce used cunning and bravery to defeat the much larger and better equipped occupying English army.

Professionally assembled history drama with a competent cast, some great landscape cinematography and lively battle scenes, but altogether not that exciting.
