• Ant-Man

    Ant-Man

    ★★★½

    Entertaining as hell but still not my favourite Marvel movie.  Paul Rudd can do no wrong but this feels like it is always on the cusp of being really good and really bad.

  • Pet Shop

    Pet Shop

    Think I saw this as a kid?  But since I couldn’t remember a single thing I didn’t rate it til now.  I was hoping for a so bad it’s good rewatch like the first two Prehysteria! films but this was painful at times.  👎👎

  • Knock at the Cabin

    Knock at the Cabin

    ★★★

    Well it was better than Old!  I enjoyed it for the most part but was never shocked at the events on screen.  Twists happened and I went ah that makes sense but again shoulder shrug.  The runtime flew by and the lead performances were strong.  I did laugh out at an I think unintentional scene.  Oh M. Night.  Will you ever make a film at the level of Sixth Sense or Signs again? Mild 👍

  • Eastern Promises

    Eastern Promises

    ★★★★★

    One of my favourites.  Been meaning to rewatch this for a while and I’m so glad I did tonight.  What a perfect thriller!  The story is interesting from the gory start and doesn’t let up.  Then there is THAT sequence.  I still remember sitting in the theatre and THAT sequence happened and I was beside myself.  👍👍

  • One Eight Seven

    One Eight Seven

    ★★★

    One of those films where you know it could have been better with proper editing and maybe a rewrite.   This is a good film that could have been great.  Sam Jackson and Clifton Collins Jr. are both incredible yet wasted. 👍

  • Infinity Pool

    Infinity Pool

    ★★★½

    Really had to sit on this before I finally wrote a log about it.  It was losing me in the middle but overall it was quite an experience.  Mia Goth’s scene on the car was worth it alone.  Skarsgård was completely different than what I’ve seen from him before.  Infinity Pool is definitely not for everyone but I’ll be thinking about it for a while.  👍

  • Hot Rod

    Hot Rod

    ★★★★★

    One of my favourite comedy movies.  The irreverent humor has always been right up my alley.  Hot Rod hasn’t aged in the least and the jokes and scenes still make me laugh hard.  This is also one of the few movies I’ve watched with audio commentary and it’s just as funny hearing The Lonley Island talk about it.  Perfect comedy! 👍👍

  • Clear and Present Danger

    Clear and Present Danger

    ★★★★½

    Raising my rating by a star.  This was like Red October where it didn’t seem as fast paced for me as a kid.  Yet I watched it countless times because growing up I only had the VHS available to me and zero streaming services.  Anyway this is pretty incredible.  Willem Dafoe plays the first on screen performance of John Clark/Kelly and he hits a home run.  I wish Clark’s solo movie Without Remorse got the treatment these early Ryan films did.  Clear and Present Danger doesn’t quite match the perfection of Patriot Games for me but it comes damn close.  Watch your back Jack.  👍👍

  • Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    ★★

    The magic is gone.  Ford does what he can but it’s Not enough.  I remember seeing a midnight screening of this and being disappointed.  It’s a well made bad movie.  Emphasis on bad.  👎

  • Toy Soldiers

    Toy Soldiers

    ★★★½

    Entertaining early 90s action thriller.  I always enjoy Sean Astin in whatever I see him in.  It’s a touch on the routine side but I enjoyed it. 👍

  • Witness

    Witness

    ★★★★★

    A perfect thriller.  Love the slow burn middle half where Ford is introduced to the Amish lifestyle.  Harrison Ford is incredible in Witness.  👍👍

  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    Who Framed Roger Rabbit

    ★★★★★

    When people ask me what my favourite movie of all time is my answer used to be L.A. Confidential.  Now I’ll say my top 5 and say L.A. first.  I love the film noir genre.  I love Hollywood 1930s-1960s. I also love animation.  Who Framed Roger Rabbit has always been another of my favourite films because the mash up of these genres probably shouldn’t have worked but did it ever.  This movie is hysterical and the plot is one of…
