  • Total Recall

    Total Recall

    ★★★★

    Not ready to give this 4.5 stars yet, but this is such a ridiculously creative screenplay. 

    The entire movie just doesn’t quit for a second with aliens and interplanetary shootouts and dwarves and brain trackers, it just doesn’t stop. As I was watching Total Recall, there was a tangible feeling for the creativity behind the making of this film.

  • An American Werewolf in London

    An American Werewolf in London

    ★★★★★

    Did John Landis really get me to love a werewolf movie? It’s always hard to say you love a movie after one watch, but man I wish horror movies were still made like this. This movie has everything; monsters, gore, comedy, good music and romance. 

    An American Werewolf in London is also a first ballot half of fame candidate for special effects and makeup. I am always taken out of a movie because of bad special effects, and this viewing experience made me feel the exact opposite. Such a treat.

  • Contagion

    Contagion

    ★★★★

    Germs is to Contagion what the shark is to Jaws. 

    I adored this movie before Corona Virus was trendy, but I’ll let people hop on the bandwagon now.

    Never understood why it wasn’t more highly acclaimed between Soderbergh, Paltrow, Winslet, Damon & Law. I thought saving “Day 1” for the end was genius. Truly an enjoyable film. 

    The driving force in this movie is something will kill you but you won’t know where, when or via what and it creates such a mood of tension and uncertainty.

  • Scary Movie 3

    Scary Movie 3

    ★★★

    Plz don’t hate me but this is my favorite in the series. Obviously the jokes age terribly in our cancel culture but Charlie Sheen & Simon Rex are fucking hilarious.

    “To have a dream!”
