    RockNRolla

    ★★★★

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    "A RocknRolla, oh, he's different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot." .... but the so-called RockNRolla was my least favorite part for most of the runtime 😂😂

    I love a good Guy Ritchie fast-talking gangster flick, and it is just not fair that all of them can't be as good as 'Snatch'.

    (Quick Hits)

    - Ritchie is great at ensembling the perfect casts to put into his stylized world of crime…

    13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

    ★★★★½

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    Michael Bay put his machismo directing style to good use in this thrilling look into the heroism shown during the dark hours of the 2012 Benghazi attack.

    "Listen up ... None of you have to go ... But we are the only help they have ... Two vehicles, staged and ready. Let's go! Move! Move!"

    Much like 'Black Hawk Down' from 2001, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi brought the depiction of urban…

  • Luca

    Luca

    ★★★★

    Literally a fish out of water story, with a great coming of age themes to boot.

    "Silencio Bruno!"

    Luca has a unique asthetic for a Pixar movie which reminded me of the look that Laika uses. It is clearly reminiscent of 'Little Mermaid', 'Ponyo', 'Bubble Guppies', and even 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'. Plus it is seasoned with plenty of natural feeling Italian flair.

    It's not as emotionally resonate at Pixar's best films, but I loved the joyful story…

  • The Predator

    The Predator

    ★★★

    Check all your expectations at the door, because your in for a mixed bag of a Predator romp of gigantic proportions.

    "Why do you call it the Predator? ... It's a nickname. You know, the data suggests that it tracks its prey, exploits weaknesses. Seems to- well, enjoy it. Like a game ... That's not a predator, that's a sports hunter ... Well, we took a vote. Predator's cooler, right? ... Fuck yeah."

    I put this off for a while…

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    ★★½

    The third epic chapter of a series built on swashbuckling fun, that somehow ended up drowning itself in dullness.

    "You're mad ... Thank goodness for that, 'cause if I wasn't this would probably never work ... And that was without even a single drop of rum."

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End should have been the ultimate tall-ship chess match on the high seas, but instead of getting to the point the film spends the bulk of its bloated…

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    An all new Spiderman comes into his own as Marvel and Sony unleash the Spider-Verse!

    "Wow, that is one hardcore origin story kid."

    The dazzling pages of a comic book come to life in this highly unique and imaginative animated film. For so long I have wanted to see a Spiderman movie that was not handcuffed to the constraints of a simple hero story and one or two villains. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse delivers that and much more as…
