    What a Way to Go!

    ★★★½

    Inconsistently paced, yet captivating in so many entertaining ways, this is a colourful classic that made me chuckle every 20 minutes. Frieda steals every scene, even against the mighty Paul Newman!

  • The Poseidon Adventure

    The Poseidon Adventure

    ★★★½

    While it may feel dated for one reason or another, Poseidon is still a benchmark in disaster film history for highlighting character development over special effects and heightened jeopardy. The acting is mixed, skipping swiftly between terrible and wonderful, but it doesn’t spoil the popcorn.

    Life Itself

    ★★★★

    A brief, if a little rushed, synopsis of accepting life’s obstacles and seeing the bigger picture. I didn’t feel manipulated in the least, and enjoyed its good heart and great script.

  • The Highwaymen

    The Highwaymen

    ★★★

    I enjoyed this buddy movie to a point, and that point showed its face a few times during the overlong running time. It was funnier than I expected, and the gravitas of their situation lacked tension at time, so it was a mixed bag for me. Also, had to use subtitles to understand the mumbling American accents!
