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

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).

"The boar wasn't that scary. The brothers were more of a threat. The movie did a good job portraying the dangers of the Australian outback, though Carl was too lucky to be so close to other people instead of being really stranded. Really let down by what could otherwise have been a fun tense creature thriller. A real boar being pissed off would have been scarier. They didn't even at least have the courtesy to make it campy. Fav scene: hallucinating in the outback. "
60 54% Auntie Mame (1958) - Mar 30, 2020
"Such a long movie that I'll need to rewatch. Could have been split into 2 movies and the time jumps don't help. Rosalind Russell is magnetically wacky. Not great Asian butler. Fav scene: getting ready to ride side saddle for the fox hunt."
50 39% Weekend (2011) - Mar 30, 2020
"Similar to Before Sunrise but a bit more explicit and less romantic. At least nobody dies in the end. Fav scene: pretending to come out to his dad."
40 25% Mirror Mirror (2012) - Mar 30, 2020
"Gorgeous costumes & style. Lily Collins was annoyingly wooden. I'm not sure how they made her look worse than in real life (probably the bad hair) but eyebrows were amazing. Julia Roberts was the star with Nathan Lane doing well too. Bad story w/tacked-on gloating comeuppance ending. Needed more friendship with Snow White and the dwarves. Peter Dinklage wasn't involved and Sean Bean lives. Everyone needs to put on winter clothing. Fav scenes: queen makeup; fights on stilts; puppets."
20 4% Twilight (2008) - Mar 30, 2020
"RiffTrax 50. Stephanie Meyer's fantasy doesn't translate well onscreen because Bella's the average (or below) girl who would just love you so much if you paid her any attention, so she deserves a brooding superhero who obsesses over her despite their age difference, but Stewart's too pretty. Good thing KS + RP turn out decent. I liked the high school stuff but ultimately vampires are central. Stupid baseball. Fav scene: Anna Kendrick in foreground for no reason other than to steal the scene. "
30 13% One-Eyed Jacks (1961) - Mar 29, 2020
"I spent this whole movie thinking Dad was Marlon Brando's dad so the whole relationship with his stepdaughter was weird. It was also weird that she got over Brando killing Dad fairly quickly. Brando spent way too much time being broody. The whole movie was way too long without much of a payoff. Fav scene: something something one-eyed jack (what's that?) and the response "I think you're lying faster than a dog can trot.""
75 78% King of the Hill (1993) - Mar 29, 2020
"It would be a kids' film but for a few mature moments. Interesting to see the Depression juxtaposed with the innocence of childhood, similar to The Florida Project. Good cast of characters made the neighborhood believable. Didn't care for the feel good ending. Fav scene: dinner party at Katherine Heigl's home. "
30 13% Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico (2003) - Mar 29, 2020
"Forgettable Scooby-Doo outing. It ends exactly as you would expect. Fav scene: giant rock monster crushing his own head."
70 70% The Tarnished Angels (1957) - Mar 28, 2020
"Nice melodrama with strong performances from everyone. Jiggs MVP. Rock Hudson looked very much like Cary Grant. Dorothy Malone reminded me of a tired Mrs. Robinson. Unexpected ending. Fav scene: Rock Hudson being forced to defend Robert Stack's character."
20 4% No Holds Barred (1989) - Mar 28, 2020
"Dookie? Jock-asses. Why doesn't Hulk Hogan use his real name? I can't tell if the movie was perfect for the intended audience or actually a subtle jab at them, given the extended scene at the bar and the bathroom. Why is Zeus so insane? Plus, that poor girl being sexually harassed, assaulted, and just plain having a series of bad days. Decent villain in Kurt Fuller's Brell. Fav scene: fight after being kidnapped leading to Dookie. "
