    ★★★

    Underwhelmed. Too many super-hero movies is leaving me jaded.

    Solid EFX.

    I love Tom Hardy but he did not work for me as Eddie Brock.

    The story was lacking even though this was more of an origin story.

  • The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

    The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

    ★★½

    Richard Burton is a UK spy working in Eastern Europe during the Cold War. An op goes bad and he is reassigned back to the UK.

    The story got bogged down for me during the UK time as I had trouble understanding the op and who were the good guys.

    Burton is solid as is Oskar Werner. Claire Bloom, Cyril Cusack, and other noticeable faces are in this. Excellent location shoots.

    The movie drags and is very slow, but I found this style enjoyable.

    The end confused me.

    ★★★★

    This remake actually works. I was prepared to dislike it as I really enjoyed the original with Noomi Rapace, but Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig did an amazing job. Loaded with some great actors this version did a very nice job of pacing. A brutal thriller, that has some very graphic elements attached to it. I loved the Bryan Ferry song that ran at the end of the credits, "Is Your Love Strong Enough". I originally heard that in Legend and it is a fantastic song.

    ★★★★

    I love April Fool's Day.

    This movie has a creepy feel about it.

    Light on gore, there is a ton of suspense.

    Deborah Foreman invites a bunch of college friends to her remote island mansion, where they are constantly playing jokes on each other until the attendees begin to disappear.

    Amy Steel and Deborah Goodrich (who really heats up the screen whenever she was on it) are the best.

    The end is great.
