Bio: ? My 2020 goal is to watch more bad movies. My 2019 goal was to point out my favorite scene in each film.

? For awhile I considered adding spoiler tags, then decided against it.

? Average films are 40-60/100. Ratings ending in 5 mean ? (rewatchable and/or would look forward to watching something with a common director/actor).

? TV ratings are a lot more extreme.

20 4% Pirates (2005) - Sep 15, 2021
"I remember watching this when it came out and it was dumb, even for porn standards."
40 28% Commando Ninja (2018) - Sep 12, 2021
"Competent retro-style Rambo ninja film. I don't have any objection to the acting; the action is just over the top and unnecessarily gory. The supporting characters are decent and memorable and I'm glad there will be a sequel. The prequel short is more professionally done. Fav scene: "Holy shit! The Democrats must have taken over." had me rolling."
75 81% Smile (1975) - Sep 12, 2021
"Yes yes, Nashville for beauty pageants. Much more engaging than Drop Dead Gorgeous. Interesting characters, fun to see some later stars in their early days. Michael Kidd was a highlight. About the only part I didn't care for was the klan in the woods (seriously, would a California group of local businessmen be that tone deaf?) Fav scene: I really like the twist with the winners."
70 74% The Furies (1950) - Sep 11, 2021
"Powerful acting but falls disappointingly close to greatness. 43-year-old Stanwyck is a stubborn young girl and we have great buildup to hate and then she suddenly forgives dad, who the film goes out of the way to redeem (and almost ruin the ending). Wendell Corey was interesting...but hits women. I liked the land tension. The minority predictably dies stoically. I want a similar farmstead sign. Fav scene: Alexander pulling no punches about her situation, both with Stanwyck and with Huston."
40 28% A Life at Stake (1954) - Sep 10, 2021
"Stupid....sexy...Angela Lansbury can't save this by-the-numbers noir, but she tries her best and is quite seductive. The writing isn't great and the younger sister is annoying. The husband being in on it was a nice twist. Fav scenes: Lansbury by the pool, Lansbury in the friend's apartment."
40 28% Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur (1980) - Sep 09, 2021
"We only had an Italian dub so I probably missed a lot. A bit aged and I don't remember it being so juvenile. My daughter quickly asked "why don't they just shrink the dinosaur?" I later asked "why's the bad guy named DolmanSTEIN?" Fav scene: the feels when Nobita leaves Piisuke. I swear, every Doraemon film involves making a new friend and having a tearful goodbye."
30 14% A Chinese Odyssey Part Two - Cinderella (1994) - Sep 05, 2021
"I liked the first one more, but kudos for coming up with a happy ending. The plot was too convoluted for me to follow since there appeared to be two sets of sisters with at least one of each in love with Stephen Chow. Some scenes just went on for way too long, which is surprising for a 98-minute film. Fav scene: when they all switch bodies the first time. For the 2nd time, what happens to the dog?"
50 43% A Chinese Odyssey Part One - Pandora's Box (1994) - Sep 04, 2021
"Journey to the West as a romantic melodrama slapstick comedy? I'd be very disappointed if I didn't know there would be a part 2. There's not much in the way of Monkey King powers and he spends most of the film being outmatched. Still, it's a nice parody of the classical Chinese story. Fav scene: the gang thinking their fake invisibility scrolls were working and the women going along with it. "
40 28% Double Jeopardy (1999) - Sep 03, 2021
"Definitely an entertaining novel idea, albeit completely inaccurate. Ashley Judd and Tommy Lee Jones carry this otherwise cliched screenplay without much else. Greenwood was a good villain. The kids were wooden. I'm disappointed Angie died offscreen and didn't do much. Same with all sorts of other characters they introduced that either didn't serve a purpose (NOLA cops) or never went anywhere (prison friends; island cops). Fav scene: library computer guy; beautiful underwater and cemetery shots."
40 28% Legal Eagles (1986) - Sep 02, 2021
"Robert Redford is very charming and lithe for a 50 year old, while Debra Winger was very cute with crazy volume in her hair. Daryl Hannah was inappropriately young. Weird seeing young Christine Baranski with a different accent. The plot was more convoluted than it had to be. Very nice NYC backdrop. Fav scene: Hannah's fire performance art exhibit."
