Mare of Easttown (2021)
Worthy of the hype!!!
The Mare of Easttown is a creeper... It starts a bit slow, but the great acting compels you to sit through another episode and then another, you get hooked real fast. The Acting keeps you coming back the accents of the characters are a bonus.
As with all my reviews I do not give spoils only recommendations, if you are looking for a Murder-Police - Small town Drama this one will fill your needs and then some. Try not to read or listen to spoilers, it will wreck a bit of the entertaining value of what they are doing.
Psychos in Love (1987)
I hate F'n Grapes
What do you get when you combine a Strip club owner and a Manicurist? Well you get one of the funniest of the worst 1980's slasher flicks. It is the best of the worst and worth a watch, it is low, low budget, it has bad continuity and choppy editing, the acting is horrible the scrip is pitiful, but for some reason the movie made me laugh, shake my head in disbelief and question my love for grapes!
The 2 main characters love murder and each other so what else could they do? Kill strippers obviously.
A horrible movie and one of my favorite Low, Low, Low, Low Budget films of the 1980's, Did I mention is was a Low Budget Slasher? I do not rematch this that often and I have not seen it for a decade or two, it still makes me laugh, sometimes nothing makes you feel better than watching a Slasher film. Don't expect great things from this, it's all fun, bad fun, but fun just the same.
Popcorn for everyone!
Man of the West (1958)
Not Gary Cooper's Best, but still entertaining.
I am not sure why this particular Gary Cooper movie is rated so high, it was not one of my favorites, the acting was merely par and the story line was worn out.
The movie moves along very slow for me and I found myself wandering around and not paying attention to the movie it was so slow.
It feels like Gary Cooper did not want to be in the movie with his delivery and Jack Lord just didn't fit the part he played. The actors in general just felt past their prime.
This was not a bad movie, just not a 7 star rating movie. If you like Gary Cooper you will watch it just like me because of his past movies. If you have not seen him in any other Western don't make this one your first it will taint your view of a great actor and a talent.
This offering was just OK.
Jupiter's Legacy (2021)
Looking Forward to see what they do next
So as you see I gave this a 6, not a 7 Stars like most of the reviews. Watching this was like watching the Dysfunctional X-Men, but don't let that statement throw you from watching this series. I just think it took too long for me to get into the show.
It starts off slow and choppy, but it eventually gets hitting its mark and fills in the gaps. I just thought they could have done it quicker.
Morality and Order is a major player in this series it is dark, gritty and cheesy at times, but shows you a side of Super Hero's families that rarely gets focused on as major theme. Even Super Heroes have flaws.
The potential for this is fantastic. Definitely Binge worthy.
Time Chasers (1994)
Do not walk away from this movie...RUNAWAY from this movie
The only Time Chasing going on here is me trying to chase down the time I wasted watching this hot mess. It was as enjoyable as stubbing your toes on a rock at the beach.
There is High budget movies, there Low budget movies and then there is Low-Low-Low-Bargain basement budget movies, This is that one, in fact I bet they stole the paperboys money to make this movie. The sets where horribly chosen, the actors not well seasoned, the directors and writers must have been upset with their end results.
It was a nice try at the very least some horror movie host, such as MST 3000 or Son of Svengoolie will have some great material to work with here.
Rocketman failed to launch
Let me make this easy and swift like removing a band-aid. I like Elton John, I like his music, I like musicals, but this just seamed like a "Oh you should feel bad for me" movie.
The movie was entertaining enough to hold me and see it through to the end, but it was choppy, jumping back and forth and was poorly edited. I would probably not sit and watch this movie ever again sadly. I feel most people will be of the mind of, I loved it or I hated it, I myself are somewhere in the "I don't care" end of the spectrum, it did not impress me at all.
Stick with his Music you will not be disappointed. Good news for me, I did get a bit of popcorn and a coke so it was not a total loss.
Tom Clancy's Without Remorse (2021)
Not Great, better book than a movie.
This movie got me entertained, it was interesting enough for me to sit and see how it all works out. But I will never sit and watch this movie a second time. It was a one shot deal. I gave this a 4 star rating because I think Michael P. Jordon has great talent.
The acting was good, action was fair, but some of the stuff was just too farfetched to be believed and it gave me the "Jump the Shark" vibe and don't even get me started on the Lieutenant Commander, she was a bad choice as an actress for the role and not believable as a Commander at all.
Worst part was soft-Low dialog, action scenes so loud I had to turn the volume down and the filming was was too dark. With all the money they spend on these movies turn a dam light on will you please!
No popcorn with this movie I sat and struggled through it.
Son of Paleface (1952)
I dare you not to smile
Bob at his best in my opinion. If you are a Bob Hope Fan you will enjoy this movie, if you enjoy Humor, you will enjoy this movie, if you hate Bob Hope and like to make children cry, you will still enjoy this movie.
The Humor is a bit dated as it is from 1952 and it is now 2021, but funny is funny, it stands the test of time and Bob's delivery is spot on. Jane Russell is beautiful and snarky enough to make you laugh and enjoy the interaction with herself and Hope. What else would make this comedy Western more enjoyable you ask.... Well Thank you for asking, let's add a Trick Horse named Trigger and Roy Rogers to round out this fun Cowboys, Indians and Outlaws adventure. You will ride off into the sunset on your recliner having enjoyed a great movie and if you are like me a big ole bowl of popcorn and a beer to wash down the laughter.
Get Hard (2015)
The Writers and actors and the Director should do Hard Time for this one
I couldn't sit through this movie in one sitting. I shut it off after the first time 20 minutes and the next time I tried I shut it off again halfway through it, The concept was there, but the chemistry between Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart was terrible and un-watchable.
This movie was so bad I shut it off and watched the news! I know this review is not going to be a popular one and I get it, but that's Entertainment.
I had no popcorn with this movie, it spoiled my apatite, I gave it a 4 star because there were a few lines that made me laugh and the premise was amusing, it was just badly delivered.
Ready to Rumble (2000)
They are not saving the world, BUT . . . They make you forget about it for a bit
Don't be a big deep thinker on this one. This movie is Fun and entertaining. They are not trying to cure cancer or save the world here they are trying to entertain and I will tell you I was so entertained I bought this movie and watch it at least once a year with friends.
This movie is silly, fun and will let you escape life's issues for an hour and 47 minutes. Oliver Platt is great and Scott Caan has some great comedic chops, however it is Martin Landau that steals the movie as the old school wrestler turned trainer.
Give this movie a chance and I bet it will pin you to the couch for a 3 count!
Popcorn for everyone!
The Italian Job (2003)
So Nice they made it Twice, Fun-Fun-Fun
The Second time around is even better with this Italian Job. There are a few movie reboots that I enjoy as much or more than the original and this one is it. A great cast and a great crime caper, being a fan of movies I went back and watched the original 1969 Michael Caine version of this and I will say they operate on the same story line and are very similar, but they are standalone movies as well. They are both fun to watch and it makes you root for the robbers. This version they have updated the technology and the dialog and made it as good if not better than the original, Seth Green will make you laugh. It is entertaining to watch as their plan unfolds.
Now I must add a side note, that I ate a BLT and a small bag of chips and enjoyed the movie and my nosh.
True Grit (2010)
Short and sweet on this one... I am a huge John Wayne fan and as such this movie pales in comparison just a little for me, however it is a good movie, a good story, well-acted and Directed. I only ask you see the original John Wayne version and then watch Jeff Bridges as Rooster.
Good Solid movie and a credit to the Western genre. A side note I had a bag of Cape Cod BBQ chips while I watched this movie and I enjoyed them both.
Hudson Hawk (1991)
Hudson Hawk soars
Let me tell you my reviews do not take up a lot of space and I practically never give a synopsis of the movie because you can get that anywhere. However what my reviews will tell you is an everyday movie fans look at if it was entertaining and whether they did their job to telling a story. Don't listen to critics they have their own agendas.
This movie won more Razzie awards than any movie released that year (1991) and was rated as one of Bruce Willis's worst movies (Obviously they didn't anticipate Once Upon a time in Venice). I think this is one of his best aside from Die Hard of course. This movie bring him back to what made him famous (Moonlighting), his comedic delivery and snarkieness make every scene work.
The Cat Burglar has charm and an innocence that matches well with some slap stick and a great crime caper. Don't listen to the critics, give Hudson Hawk a look.
Is it cheesy? . . . Yes, Is it Fun? . . . Yes. I bet you repeat a few lines from the movie after you see it! Ring-Ding Goat Cheese Pizza! I had 2 bowls of Popcorn on this one, I spilled the first one when I laughed at the Nintendo comment.
A Hidden and Underrated Gem and should be in every Bruce Willis Collection.
The Postman (1997)
The Postman Delivers
Listen I know that Costner has a rep. For long drawn out story lines and his movies can be on the slow side, but give this one a chance, it makes you feel proud at the end and I tell you that you will not feel like you wasted your time and if you do I will refund your money on this review, with your receipt of course.
It is Post-Apocalyptic, but don't hold that against it, it has some great twists and turns, it has action and even some romance, if you are into that sort of thing and in the end you feel better about the world in general. I enjoyed 2 bowls of Popcorn and a beer with this movie.
Who knows you may want to hug your postal carrier after this movie.
Thunder Force (2021)
Thunder Force More Like Thunder Thud
Melissa McCarthy is becoming the David Schwimmer (Friends) of actors, they are the same character in everything they are in. I won't drag this review out and say how mediocre I think the acting was or how I think Director and writer Ben Falcone should stick to acting. I will simply say if you are looking to shut your brain pan off for an hour and 46 minutes, you could do worse that Thunder Force. McCarthy should go back to TV and Octavia please be a bit more selective. There were a few funny lines but overall, the usual Melissa McCarthy humor. On a side note I had nacho's and the crunching made some of the dialog incoherent so I had that going for me.
If you like Melisa McCarthy watch Identity Thief, She and Jason Bateman will keep you laughing in that one.
Coming 2 America (2021)
I wanted to say that Eddie Murphy was funny and still had some comedic relevance, But I cant. I Sat, I watched, I smirked, but that was about all I could manage. In the current and ongoing Pandemic where a lot of folks are working from home and streaming into or calling into work, I felt that these actors made me feel that they too were just phoning it in. I can't tell you it was a waste of time because there were a few parts that made me smile, but overall I think most of us watched this movie because we were invested in the characters from the first movie. I didn't hate it, but I would probably never watch this movie again and defiantly not add it to my collection. What I will tell you is that I enjoyed my popcorn while I watched.
Bodyguard: A New Beginning (2008)
a Hong Kong Bodyguard caught up in a battle of loyalties
I do not know why, but I expected more from this movie. This movie was completely and utterly forgettable...I wish I could be more specific, but other than the title there was noting to brag about in this movie. in fact it took me 3 tries to get through this movie I fell asleep twice
The story could have been great but between the acting and the action it was nothing to write home about. This movie almost makes me never want to see the first one again. I think my recommendation is for you to watch the first one twice and skip watching this one. Sorry folks I can only add that my Popcorn was yummy and my soda was ice cold and perfect.
Sorority Row (2009)
College Rush Pajama party gone bad
You rated this movie: 3

Rate 3 stars
Rate 2 stars
Rate 1 star
Sorority Row starts off great ... College Rush Pajama party, with some hot looking girls. when a Death occurs, followed by a cover-up, it causes dissension in the group of girls that were all friends at the start. This movie has one of the best weapons used in a "Slasher" movie, all I can say is best use of a tire iron since the invention of the car. Best line in the whole movie was "...It looks updated, like some one has pimped it out.." There is some skin in the movie, but unfortunately not from the main characters you would like to see it from. A lot of it was as predictable as "Slasher" films can be, but over all it was entertaining. Not bad for a group movie, better than most of them that are out there at this time. It had some "B" list stars, Like Jammie (MTV's Real World), Rumer Willies (Demi's& Bruce Wilis's Daughter) and Briana Evigan (Step up 2)But as I said a "slasher" is a "Slasher"
