Check out mattorama12's...
|50 18%||Veronica Mars (2004) - Sep 20, 2018
"Your boy mattorama12 was an extra on the first season of this show. They didn't tell us what episode it would be, so I had to watch the show until I saw the one. It was passable, and Kristen Bell was well cast [and I've since come to really love her]. PS, I didn't watch enough to give this show a fair rating, so 50 is simply a placeholder so I could brag about my Hollywood career."
|58 33%||Gleaming the Cube (1989) - Sep 15, 2018
"Definitely a terrible movie overall, with the 80s cheese at full strength. But as a skater, I appreciate it nonetheless. The young Bones Brigade as the skate crew and stunt doubles makes it worth it for anybody who is fond of the early days of skateboarding."
|77 82%||Unforgiven (1992) - Sep 11, 2018
"Munney's slow descent back to the "man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition" is a great watch. It's not without its problems, though. While I love Richard Harris, the entire English Bob subplot felt mostly unnecessary."
|77 82%||Blood Simple (1984) - Sep 08, 2018
"Amazing debut for the Coens (and Sonnenfeld as DP). I love how much of the story is told through action or camera or lighting instead of dialogue. Only personal downside is that while many Coen hallmarks were already present here, it lacks the humor that I think makes most of their work truly special."
|71 66%||Demetri Martin: The Overthinker (2018) - Sep 08, 2018
"Martin probably makes me chuckle more consistently than anybody else. I love his jokes that make you think just a second longer than usual."
|59 35%||Super Troopers 2 (2018) - Sep 06, 2018
"I can't say I'm disappointed because it's nearly exactly what I expected. But it shows once again that no matter how much you might want to see more of the characters you love from a cult comedy, they seldom can capture lightning in a bottle a second time."
|57 31%||Disenchantment (2018) - Sep 05, 2018
"It lacks the biting satire of American culture that made The Simpsons great, it lacks the love of its genre that made Futurama great, and there are not enough of the clever jokes that were a staple of both. There's a kernel of a good show here, and I'll watch the next season, but it needs to up its game for me to stick with it beyond that."
|73 72%||Bert Kreischer: Secret Time (2018) - Sep 05, 2018
"Bert is a great story teller and he shows it here."
|71 66%||Lion (2016) - Sep 04, 2018
"Very well acted. The ending really brings this thing home and earns the tears. The middle act sort of loses steam, and there's some domestic drama that feels a little tacked on and unnecessary, though."
|67 56%||First Contact: Lost Tribe of the Amazon (2016) - Aug 28, 2018
"I'm really fascinated by uncontacted people in general, and the focus here is on a group that was recently contacted, so you get a good sense of their existence before contact as well as their post-contact perspective. "
