|84 73%||A Shot in the Dark (1964) - May 06, 2021
"It's amazing the shift in tone watching the first Pink Panther film to the second, as it has suddenly embraced it's slapstick side. This is a fantastic, classic mystery that, apart from being silly, is actually pretty smart under the surface. I recommend this one"
|81 66%||City of Angels (1998) - May 06, 2021
"This movie has been out for a pretty long time, and I've heard a lot about it over the years, and I've only gotten around to it now. It's not bad. There's a lot of fantastic shots of angels...just...observing the world and the hurting. As for the romance...it's not bad at all. I always look for a different way to tell the same old song and dance - what impossible hurdle will you have to overcome....to find that love? This movie answers that question pretty well"
|58 15%||Separation (2021) - Apr 26, 2021
"When it comes to the horror genre, I'm always gearing up to see a movie, but I often am dissatisfied with the end result because it's just so utterly subjective. You can't get anything perfect for everyone...and Separation is an interesting film that I feel like could definitely spook some folks out - but for me, I think it tried WAY too hard to show the audience creepy imagery to the point of desensitizing"
|79 60%||Mortal Kombat (2021) - Apr 23, 2021
"Being someone that never really played any of the original games, I can tell you without a doubt that there were certain things I was lost with while watching this film. It clearly expects its viewers to know who certain characters are, and what certain story points are all about, but even if you DO watch it blindly, it's still a lot of fun, and some of the best action I've seen in a while"
|61 19%||The Pink Panther (1963) - Apr 19, 2021
"The first film in the PINK PANTHER series is interesting, because it's not like the others. Sure, Clouseau is in there and Peter Sellers kills it in the role, as he normally does, but the film as a whole isn't as funny. The subsequent sequels dive more into the antics and slapstick stuff while this was more of a romantic comedy mystery, which a lot of the jokes fell flat for me and in general, I just found to be super slow and boring. It had it's moments...but there weren't many"
|71 38%||Citizen Kane (1941) - Apr 14, 2021
"Listen....I get it. In the '40s, the technical steps this film takes mirrors a lot of the stuff we see in today's world that we consider to be GOOD technical steps. I even love the mysterious premise of trying to discover the meaning of this "Rosebud" word....but most of Kane's life is boring, and so much investment into this word doesn't have the best payoff in the end. I GET what they were going for...sort of? But I was left a little bit...disappointed."
|83 71%||The Master of Disguise (2002) - Apr 13, 2021
"A MASTERPIECE IN DISGUISE! Man, I just don't care what the critics say about this one. It's a cult classic. Nearly every single scene in the film, in one way or another, is quotable and/or memorable. The humor doesn't always click, but Dana Carvey was MADE for this film, and I will argue until the day that I die....that he IS turtlee-enough for that turtle club. TURTLE TURTLE. "
|64 24%||Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult (1994) - Apr 13, 2021
"This film, like the others in the trilogy, has a lot of solid laughs, but I can start to see the shift in how these parodies are made, since this film had more "spoofs" in it than the previous two - you could see them making fun of Thelma & Louise, Jurassic Park, and a few others...instead of just making fun of tropes and genre stereotypes....as much as it pains me to know this is the end of Naked Gun, I think they ended on a mostly good note"
|73 44%||The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear (1991) - Apr 12, 2021
"The 2nd film in the NAKED GUN series is pretty darn close to the genius of the first in terms of comedy, but what it lacks is focus on the story. Because the first film had an incredibly simple story (assassination attempt), it could focus so much more on the jokes, but this second film actually has a complex political plot on renewable energy vs. nuclear power - and that's just kind of weird and detracts from the comedy....that being said, the jokes are still gold, regardless."
|73 44%||Thunder Force (2021) - Apr 11, 2021
"Any time you see people saying this film could be TERRIBLE...they're lying. Thunder Force is adequate. It's exactly what you expect it will be. If you can watch Godzilla vs Kong to watch the gimmick of two monsters fighting, you can watch this film to watch the gimmick of Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer as superheroes."
