Crop And Save
And THAT is a word I never use, but this movie is nothing short of fantastic in every way.
I am not a Disney fan, I hate Disney but I needed to screen this for my daughter and it passed with flying colors. Watching in 4k was a special treat....sets, costumes, and the two Emma's (not to mention a great soundtrack) make for a high watermark in pure entertainment, and that is very rare these days. First time on over 10 years I believed a film to be Oscar worthy, too bad that award means so little in today's climate. Minus 1 star for the sad CGI dogs.
Far Cry (2008)
OK, maybe in 2008
This might have sucked, but today its Academy Award material in comparison to the garbage we're being fed by Hollywood. Time for all you 4* Gomers out there to rewatch and recalibrate your opinions of this terrific action flick, this is as good as it gets in these times.
The Assistant (2019)
WTF did I just watch?
You know I have seen some bad movies, especially recently since they all seem to be about mistreated females or some other class of mistreated humans, but generally you expect there to be a story. Here the main story seems to be about people you never see, or hear, so the story kind of subverts itself... then it just ends... abruptly.
I don't care how much of a Julia Garner fan you are, and she is an extraordinary talent, like me you will watch this thing because you love her, then you will be pissed at yourself for sitting still through this steaming pile of artsy crap. 2/10.
Coming 2 America (2021)
We waited 30 years for this?
Amazing they were able to keep some cast members on life support long enough to finish this blasphemy, but thats what it is... total dreck. Eddie Murphy should be ashamed to sully his legacy with crap like this, and it is total unadulterated crap... and I'm being kind.
Well its been fun.
Quality of the writing has been in decline for years, losing Emmy Rossum was a major blow, and now in the final season there is social justice to tend, to hell with the loyal fans.
In the season opener as Frank is pontificating on the vast contributions by the Gallaghers in building the city of Chicago, predictably we are treated with a lingering shot of a Black Lives Matter mural, easy to see what the theme of this season is going to be. Excuse me but I'm not going to stick around for the Trump jokes, I'm out. Now I'm off to cancel my subscription to Showtime, like I said its been fun.
Palm Springs (2020)
As bad as it gets.
I had picked this for my daughter based on its sterling Metacritic (85) rating, well I suppose we can write off Metacritic as nothing but paid shills for Hollywood now. By far and away one of the worst movies I've seen in recent memory, all these glowing reviews should qualify their authors for an intense psychological evaluation.
Boring, tedious, redundant, obnoxious, and amateurish snoozefest... I actually don't remember one single funny scene unless you count somebody being flattened by an 18 wheeler but I'd just call that karma. This is one to avoid at all costs, and no it doesn't work on a younger crowd either... maybe a much much younger crowd like under 10.
7 Days to Vegas (2019)
I can't remember the last time I qualified a movie as such, maybe 1987 or somewhere around there... I was captured by the gambling aspect of this flick, and it delivered in spades!
Funny, creative, and filled with captivating drama, real or imagined. This is what the movies are all about, including a surprise twist for an ending. Very satisfying, crack open a 6 pack and just enjoy. BTW, don't believe the rating for this thing, I don't know what the hell's wrong with people.
The Outsider (2020)
This had such great potential.
Ep 1-3 were great, then we were introduced to Holly Gibney. It was all downhill from there. A modern day Whoopi Goldberg cut in the mold of a classic David Lynch character Gibney races full steam ahead into the momentum of this show, and stops it cold. I checked out half way through Ep 6, I can live without this tripe.
Zombieland: Double Tap (2019)
My adult kids were pretty jazzed about seeing this, they both went to sleep during the damn thing and I had to struggle to keep my eyes open as well. Boring, stupid, and lacking any creativity or humor. A total and complete waste of time.
Rambo: Last Blood (2019)
Better than expected.
I watched this with very low expectations, and I was pleasantly surprised with this film, John Rambo fans will love it.
The 2.39:1 aspect ratio aside, and Rambo literally pulling off the impossible in record time south of the border I really don't have any criticism of this flick, its highly entertaining and very satisfying in the end. Actually the climax will have you laughing and clapping and hooting and hollering, this is John Rambo at his finest. Will make you hungry for just one more in this series, Stallone looks like he's up to the challenge.
Running with the Devil (2019)
I can't believe I sat through this entire thing. As far as Nic Cage movies goes, this ranks as one of his best in the last 10 years. Unfortunately thats not saying much as this flick still belongs on the garbage heap of big name talent like Fishburn who I don't even believe Samuel L Jackson would have taken this role, and I guarantee he most likely turned it down.
Basically this tells the story of how cocaine is literally walked from Columbia to Canada, its idiotic, its boring, and its fiction. 4 Snorts, and I'm being kind.
Season 3 is an absolute disaster.
Appears David Lynch has hijacked this show. I thought I was tuning into my favorite series but it turns out I'm just having a bad Twin Peaks flashback.
Goliath is now a cartoon, a shell of its former self and its pretty obvious its been decided there will be no Season 4 because I've never seen such lazy self indulgent crap in my life. I'm through Ep 5 and I've seen nothing that motivates me to finish out, well there is Tania Raymond but this storyline is more reminiscent of Fear and Loathing than our beloved Goliath.
Season 1 was a 10+, Season 2 was a solid 8, S3 is a 4, and I'm being kind. Thanks Billy Bob, its been fun.
El Gringo (2012)
This may be the dumbest movie I've ever seen.
But since I watched a flick about moon Nazis last night I'll have to reserve that title for another day. Scott Adkins should be in the next John Wick movie, as a bad guy, he can certainly kill as many people, and with gusto.
Get a 6 pack and settle in for 90 minutes of mindless nonsense, punctuated by Christian Slater's stellar acting.
Iron Sky: The Coming Race (2019)
Oh come on, it wasn't that bad.
OK the writing was weak, but this was an entertaining flick, for those with the patience to sit through it. If you didn't you missed some hilarious moments.
Moon Nazis, dinosaurs, eternal life, the Hollow Earth, reptoids, and the 10 or so well known rulers of Agartha, I mean it doesn't get any better than this, this is a conspiracy theorist's dream! Don't know why they wasted their money on Tom Green, my uncle Wayne would have been better in that part but I guess he was available since I haven't heard his name in over 10 years.
Less satisfying than it was just plain dumb, but look on the bright side.... its only 90 minutes long and you'll be able to tell your friends you saw probably the most idiotic "movie" ever made.
I have been telling you people for years....
That Tarantino is a no talent hack. OK, so he made two good films, not sure where he stole the material from but this mess, Once Upon a Time is the worst movie I've seen in the last 20+ years. If you want to be bored out of your skull for 2 hours this is just for you.
Four nights later and I can't finish this thing.
Earth to casting.... Halle Berry, what were you people thinking? Did she win a Nose Flaring audition for this part? She's 53 years old, totally wrong for this movie, and looks bitter, old, and used up. Oh but it gets better, who cast the clown act from Iron Chef, you know the "Ala Cuisine" guy? Its laughable, and looking at these reviews I'm not alone in my disgust for this mess of a movie.
Love the first two installments, this one will survive on the John Wick legend at the top of the Hollywood trash heap with all the other crap they're producing these days. A complete waste of time, you've been warned.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)
What was the point of this?
Just more self-indulgent crap by the Coen bros., ultimately leading nowhere but to loneliness and despair. And even in the closing credits you are shown a horse's ass, which is what I feel like for sitting through over 2 hours of this babble. Intriguing story lines and casting aside, if you feel anything other than vacant after watching this thing, you're not really somebody I want to hang out with. 4 Spurs
The Russian Bride (2019)
Better than expected.
To all you guys that have been surfing RussianBrides.com all these years, you need to see this flick. An unsuspecting MILF with a young attractive daughter is lured and seduced by an American billionaire, travels to the US and gets married and moves into a remote mansion with a weird housekeeper and a Rob Zombie character as a caretaker. That would all be OK if the master of the house wasn't a complete raging psychopath.
I rarely watch films like this, its dark and the content is fairly disturbing, but I liked it. Corbin Bernsen was very believable as the resident lunatic, and the minimalistic cast falls into perfect lockstep with the pace and grim potential of this soon to be cult classic. Highly recommended. 8/10
What happened to Sam Elliot's chin?
Did it get shot off in Road House or something.
Excruciatingly slow, painfully stupid, boring beyond words except for the exceptional production quality.... too bad about the script, sentimental propagandist nonsense.
Bigfoot gets a tip of the hat from the Walking Dead. One of the worst movies I've seen in the last ten years.
The Pugilist (2017)
The absolute worst UK mob movie I've ever seen.
Thats the only reason I watched this thing, If you can endure the first hour and a half of this tripe, I promise you'll be treated to an even more ridiculous ending to this mess. Good luck.
Project Blue Book (2019)
History Channel owes me an hour of my life back.
In UFO World the sun never shines, there is fog everywhere, the rooms are all dark, and there is a shadowy pall cast over every scene as if to imitate cinematography of the 60's. Major fail.
I very much looked forward to this debut, however it was boring and difficult to watch. It looks like it was filmed from the Cryptkeeper's castle, that at least appeared to be the mood. First episodes I usually can forgive but this one was legitimately painful to watch and I absolutely cannot forgive the way this was filmed. Not going to attract a loyal audience IMO, but I'll update this next week... if I can spare the time.
Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018)
"Hey get that camera out of my face!"
I think this was a Middle School project actually. Amateurish writing, casting, direction, and editing... quite possibly the worst I've seen in the last 20 years. I can't believe Stallone put his stamp on this pig. And he barely appears, except in extreme closeups, but then everybody gets that treatment as well.
Escape Plan was brilliant, one of Stallone's best. This is his worst, like a high tech B Hong Kong flick starring Sonny Machiba. I'm not going to waste anymore time on this review, I feel my brain melting already.
I was wrong about this show.
Its great! I love Costner, and I eagerly awaited the debut of this show, and while a few episodes showed some promise, the story builds to an exciting and dramatic conclusion to Season 1.
Some of the criticism on here is absurd, stick with this show, it is truly a keeper.
Operation Odessa (2018)
The wheeling deeling 90's!
The most incredible documentary I have ever seen. Tells the amazing story of a Miami-Cali Cartel-Moscow connection and the purchase of Russian military helicopters for sale to the the Cartel. Eventually leading to a brokered deal by these shady Miami figures and a Cuban Secret Service agent with 40 passports of a Russian nuclear sub to the drug lords. There's an amazing twist at the end of this story involving the most ballsy double-cross anyone could imagine but I won't give that away.
Told by the original players from Miami and DEA and FBI agents, missing from the testimony are Cartel members who are MIA for obvious reasons. The main characters are all unique personalities that had me laughing from the first interview. Especially entertaining was the Cuban spy who if he wasn't in hiding would make a great stand up comedian, or the next James Bond. Documentaries are not normally entertaining, but this one had me in stitches until the end. Highly recommended.
Schitt's Creek (2015)
Practically unwatchable now.
First season: Great. Second season started the slide, now a 4/10 is being very generous.
David was the clear star of the show early on with his quirky and sometimes hilarious metrosexual manners, that has now decended into a nonstop play of gay angst and preening man love with his Rose Apothecary co-partner. Its sickening actually. Alexis is still as funny as she is totally clueless, but her mom Moira is so overly pretentious and tacky and so unlikeable sometimes I wonder why I even bother. Chris Elliot is wasted on this series, but I guess they can't get rid of Mr. Schitt.
As usual Eugene Levy's understated and dry with are the clear highlight of whats left of this Schitt Show. Here's hoping for improvement in Season 5, but considering the direction they're headed I won't hold my breath.
