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.

"Great fun, as expected. I was a bit worried that the film would be too pointedly feminist, with the stay-at-home Mr. Incredible, but it is balanced well. Those scenes are great, and the message is excellent that the one out "saving the world" is only made possible by the team-mate fulfilling family duty behind the scenes."
75 57% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) - Jan 03, 2019
"The delving into the quantum realm and the results thereof are sometimes painfully ridiculous, but the film is saved by being funny and charming. It even can poke fun at itself (Scott himself wonders, "do you guys just put the word 'quantum' in front of everything?"). Also, it's nice to enjoy a superhero movie where the fate of the world/universe is not at stake."
70 45% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - Jan 03, 2019
"I was very entertained. It did a good job of pulling in lots of characters and settings without being a chaotic mess. However (spoilers), how many times do we have to see characters struggle to weigh a single life vs half the galaxy, and STILL sometimes choose the former? Also, thanks to Starlord for the DUMBEST choice to punch someone in movie history. Marvel can do entertaining fluff well, but emotional dialogue and choice-making is increasingly not its strong suit."
65 35% A Quiet Place (2018) - Dec 20, 2018
"Good atmosphere and tension, Krasinski and Blunt did well, and the premise was really intriguing. This film could have been great. Spoilers: But for blind creatures that hunt by sound, they couldn't hear too well, or have any kind of sonar. Footsteps running through the forest? Heavy breathing in the same room? Baby crying behind a mattress? S'okay, you're good. And why is a nail sticking up in the middle of the stairs? And nothing done about it? And the weakness? No one had thought of that?"
78 68% Aquaman (2018) - Dec 16, 2018
"If you're tired of complaining about comic-book cliches, poses, and three-point landings, and can simply accept the superhero cheese, then you have a good chance at liking Aquaman. I always thought Aquaman was kind of dumb, but this film made talking to fishes cool. And he did wear a shirt sometimes. There were groan moments, of course, like when the super-urgent-stopping-the-battle dialogue had to pause for the smooching while people die in the background. But then there's Dolph Lundgren."
10 5% Eegah (1962) - Dec 11, 2018
"I needed a week-long hiatus to let this movie sink in. It's that good. And thanks to MST3K for the apt descriptor for our hero, "Cabbage Patch Elvis"."
40 11% Gunsmoke: Return to Dodge (1987) - Dec 07, 2018
"For the record, I am a fan of Gunsmoke, but this was like a mangled Louis L'Amour plot with crappy flashbacks thrown in. Steve Forrest's convincingly psychopathic gunslinger was balanced by Matt's notoriously bad hair. Well it would have been notorious if more people had watched this."
78 68% On Moonlight Bay (1951) - Dec 02, 2018
"Fun, light-hearted comedy, supported by Day's and Macrae's wonderful voices and by the young brother Wesley's antics. My only real beef is that she gave up baseball."
75 57% The Mortal Storm (1940) - Dec 01, 2018
"A well-made, if heavy-handed, portrayal of a family struggling with Hitler's new Germany. For me I was slow to reconcile the very American actors with the German setting, but in the end this perhaps brought it closer to home. At least Jimmy Stewart never drawled a "Heil Hitler." That would have been just too much to overcome. Wicked Nazi Ward Bond was enough."
75 57% Le Million (1931) - Nov 26, 2018
"A new kind of musical for me, where just the supporting characters (quite a motley crew) periodically burst out in expository song, with a bit of opera thrown in. Fun and goofy flick, clever and cute. The scene of the lovers on the opera stage was well-done in particular."
