Bio: A guy who likes movies of all kinds (well, except for the kind of movies I don't like), from all decades. Still working my way through the '1001 Movies to See Before You Die' list, and probably will always be.

Note, all my rankings of 0 (zero) are movies I have NOT seen, but am absolutely positive would fall in my lowest tier. The way Criticker assigns tiers I am forced to work the system in a losing effort to have decent movies be assigned to a decent tier. No reasonable person would watch as many bad movies as good ones.

"Pretty (but not pretty) interesting and trippy film, but too squishy and fleshy for my taste."
65 35% Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars (1985) - Aug 26, 2019
"Two groups of guys: one bunch of perverts spending all their time trying to grope girls, and one police trio tracking down real baddies and beating them up. How do we bring them together for a single action comedy? Well, Sammo doesn't seem to have given that question his best thought. Still, seeing Jackie and the boys kicking butt together again is worth it. And Sammo dual-wielding tennis rackets is also worth it."
75 57% Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) - Aug 25, 2019
"MontalBAAAAAN!! Good flick, but I do wish they did more with Khan and his vaunted intellect. Like probably everyone who saw this as a kid, the ear-parasite business made a scar. Even though it didn't follow through on the "madness and death" promise."
55 21% McLintock! (1963) - Aug 24, 2019
"So McLintock finds out his wife is bitter over his drinking, cheating ways, figures the best solution is to chase her around town in order to humiliate her and give her a good spanking. What d'ya know, turns out he's right! This after handing a gang of disgruntled Indians a train-car full of weapons. Close curtain, we're good, folks. I enjoyed this fun movie until it degenerated to this, though it's not nearly as well-done as The Quiet Man."
82 77% Supercop (1992) - Aug 24, 2019
"Worth watching for the stunts alone, which are friggin' nuts (especially in the last 15 minutes). Jackie and Michelle are fantastic and it's a fun movie, but unfortunately there's less martial arts and more gunplay than other Chan offerings. And I think May being dumb and needing saving is getting old by this third film in the Police Story franchise. In any case I'm glad I saw the original Chinese version, from what I'm reading in other reviews."
65 35% Cat People (1942) - Aug 23, 2019
"This is a mildly suspenseful dark tragedy, if not really horror. The poor foreign girl has a cat curse and a terrible husband. I guess she was better off not marrying the random stranger from her litter-spree at the zoo after all. In all it might have been an effective social or relational allegory if the relationship weren't given the Hollywood treatment. The visuals are great, though, and it has a few nice scenes."
65 35% The Tall Men (1955) - Aug 23, 2019
75 57% Police Story 2 (1988) - Aug 22, 2019
"A little too little action until the end in my view, but as usual Jackie's finale doesn't disappoint. You aren't watching for the story, but for the amazing stunts and clever choreography. If you like explosions you will be satisfied here as well. Also, bonus points for the bloody outtakes. Overall, not quite as good as the first film."
65 35% Eyes Without a Face (1960) - Aug 20, 2019
"Pretty decent, but not in the least bit scary. Not sure why the film is so celebrated, but it was good-looking."
78 68% Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) - Aug 20, 2019
"Okay, I'm not a fan of Tarantino, but when I friend dragged me to this I actually enjoyed it. This is a mostly restrained film, not T's normal self-indulgent celebration of violence and filth. Right, it's not completely restrained, with the ending violence going too far, and the language throughout. But Tarantino actually does show his talent, giving us a decently fun and meaningful tribute to classic Hollywood (and specifically westerns). On top of it, DiCaprio and Pitt were both great."
