    Barney had to die. What a garbage human. Really enjoyed this twilight zone it's an adulterous life noir.

  • Lady in the Lake

    Lady in the Lake

    ★★½

    Robert Montgomery plays Phillip Marlowe as a total asshole. It is impossible to buy into a romance between Marlowe and Adrienne. Otherwise it was interesting to watch the first first person view film. The POV was not super effective and scenes were drawn out way too long for some reason.

    Predator

    ★★★★★

    A squad of one man armies swing their dicks into the wrong jungle. This is the kind of swaggering male bravado the Expendables franchise desperately wishes it was. As if that wasn't enough Predator is a solid as hell monster movie and slasher film that fires on all cylinders.

    ★★★★½

    This movie is distilled high octane insanity. Hardcore sets a new high bar for action on film. Imagine the most intense fight scene in something like the Raid but it keeps going, keeps escalating, and doesn't stop until the credits roll.

    The first person view will draw comparisons to gaming and it definitely takes inspiration from videogames like Half Life in terms of pacing. It is so much damn fun. The stunts in this film are crazy. I would love…
