|60 T7||Love, Simon (2018) - Mar 20, 2018
"Could have used some more comedy for me, and the vice principal character didn't work at all, but my theatre's audience reaction at the climax was pure ecstasy, and I'm happy to have experienced that. In terms of meaning, this is the "Black Panther" of the year for the underserved LGBTQ community."
|20 T2||Snatch (2000) - Mar 17, 2018
"Too cartoonish. The British "Pulp Fiction"? Fail. Someone get Guy Ritchie some ritalin. I quit watching after an hour and started Googling "Why do people like 'Snatch'?" He even copied the "gun-going-off-in-the-car" hijinx? How embarrassing..."
|20 T2||The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988) - Mar 17, 2018
"30 minutes in I said to myself "Wow, I'm really going to hate this movie." I stopped watching somewhere after the moon bit and surfed the Internet until it finished. It's like a really bad, reeeeally long "Looney Toons" cartoon. But then he throws in off-putting sexual jokes, so I couldn't even recommend it as throwaway crap for kids. Also reminded me of Wes Anderson. The torture organ bit ripped off the Monty Python "Mouse Organ" sketch. Terry Gilliam makes shit movies."
|20 T2||Hachiko: A Dog's Story (2009) - Mar 12, 2018
"Great, if you want to watch Richard Gere play with a dog for an hour and a half."
|40 T5||The Beguiled (2017) - Mar 11, 2018
"Dozed through the middle bit I think. Not sure I missed much. Climax had a "so what" feel."
|40 T5||Lawrence of Arabia (1962) - Mar 09, 2018
"The dialogue-less slog through the desert on the way to Aqaba was intolerable. There's no humour, there's no thrills really. I mean, lots of stuff blows up and lots of people die, but never in an entertaining way. And if it doesn't entertain then it has to inform, and it barely did that, though I would like to read the real story. By the end I just wanted it to end already. I should probably rate this lower but for now I'm pussing out based on its reputation."
|40 T5||The Men and the Machines That Beat Hitler (2013) - Mar 07, 2018
"Relies heavily on the first-person accounts of the British tank soldiers. I wish that that was more supporting content and that the actual context and tactics and battles took the center stage. The first-person accounts were of the "war is hell, seeing my friends die but we just gone on with it" ilk, and got repetitive."
|60 T7||Score: A Film Music Documentary (2016) - Mar 06, 2018
"Pretty good, but wish it was more of a history of film scores. I particularly liked the famous firsts, like that 1933's "King Kong" was the first movie orchestral score. They did touch on maybe too many musicians too quickly, I'd like to see it as a longer piece or maybe a series."
|40 T5||Pete Holmes: Faces and Sounds (2016) - Feb 27, 2018
"Tuned in because of his great show "Crashing". Of the bits, "Green Eggs and Ham" was alright, but "Double Snakes" was the only wonderful bit. That really had me going. A lot fell flat for me though, almost as if he was forgot his act and was just ad-libbing off the top of his head."
|60 T7||Star Trek: Discovery (2017) - Feb 25, 2018
"I appreciate the feature film quality production values, but this Trek is a bit dark for me. I miss the TNG humour. Enjoyed the twist, but...well...it's okay."
