    ★★★

    An interesting documentary - not necessarily for the documentary’s sake but for it’s subject matter.  In other words, a pretty average documentary about a really interesting subject.

  • Dog

    ★★★

    The advertisements really didn’t do this film justice.  It’s less of a dog buddy road trip film and more of a character piece on PTSD and it’s effect on some soldier’s lives.  It’s a little clunky and meanders from time to time but overall it’s a solid little film that I enjoyed watching but will likely forget about in a few weeks.

    The Dead Zone

    ★★★

    I had forgotten most of this movie and mixed it up with Stir of Echoes in my memories.  It’s fine.  Moments of this are good, but it’s a little slow in parts.  Not a favorite of Cronenberg’s but far from a bad film.

    Scream

    ★★★★

    I was worried this would suck for a couple reasons: 1) Wes Craven wasn’t behind it (for obvious reasons).  2) it was dumped in the dead zone month where 99% of horror films released in January suck.  3) It’s the 5th film in the franchise.  

    But it manages to beat the odds and what we have is a fun and clever installment that’s quite possibly the best sequel in the franchise.  Almost reaching levels of the first, but not quite hitting the mark.  Several fun surprises throughout.  I hope they continue the franchise.  It’d be cool to see more with this new group.
