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.

50 44% The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1939) - Jan 24, 2022
"I like the silliness of the Basil Rathbone Sherlock films, much of which comes from Nigel Bruce's facial expressions reacting to Sherlock. Nice surprise to see Ida Lupino. It starts off strong with the courtroom scene and the cab banter. Why steal the crown jewels? Why not some easier to fence ones? Fav scene: Sherlock singing and dancing. "
30 15% Never Forever (2007) - Jan 24, 2022
"The plot didn't make sense for me so a lot of the drama seemed forced. Why did she have to pay so much? Why did they have feelings and argue after like the 3rd session? Why did they fall in love when she was doing all this for her husband? How did they have the whitest hapa? I even felt the nudity was unnecessary. Fav scene: they hear a siren outside (why?), then the police officer teleports up the stairs and fuck your constitutional rights, with a dash of white woman yelling "you have no right""
30 15% Hotel Transylvania: Transformania (2022) - Jan 23, 2022
"I'm surprised they made it to 4. I couldn't tell you what happened in 2 and 3 or whether I even watched them, but good for everyone involved to hopefully rake in that Amazon dough. Fav scene: monsters in human form creeping around, especially barely-dressed Invisible Man. "
10 0% Magic Story (1987) - Jan 22, 2022
"Knockoff vampire comedy that never really landed for me. The characters weren't likeable. The humor focused too much on moronic. I lost interest halfway through. Fav scene: no idea."
40 29% Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014) - Jan 22, 2022
"Great to watch with kids but forgettable like other non-Pixar CG. Nice mix of high and low brow humor. Whole movie felt like episodes stitched together with cameos, then in the final act they had to raise the stakes and make a cinematic experience and moral out of it. How old were these kids supposed to be? It was Sherman's first day at school but the girl was already discussing romances. Fav scenes: I love the puns but there were more than a few poop/fart jokes that landed."
70 75% The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) - Jan 20, 2022
"My first Rathbone from a new boxset. It loses steam near the end (once the marriage talks begin) but I appreciate the jolliness of the characters. I like seeing Bruce's Watson as a loud hero though he relies on his gun too much. I thought there were going to be eye holes in the painting like Scooby-Doo, the way Rathbone kept looking at it. The ending is quite abrupt and we don't get the satisfaction of seeing the bad guy apprehended. Fav scene: the reveal in the cave."
30 15% Old Dracula (1974) - Jan 19, 2022
"lol. But not really. I'll give it points for style and cohesion, but it wasn't that interesting. Even my Vinegar Syndrome disc didn't bother to include any supplements (besides a short interview). Fav scene: you're glad the film is finally over but they give you one last "fuck you" of David Niven in blackface."
70 75% The Navigator (1924) - Jan 19, 2022
"Feels long despite its 59 minute runtime, but there's more of a plot here and they're creative about making the most use out of the nautical setting. As with other silent films sometimes the gags are held on to for a bit too long to make sure you get it. Fav scenes: I liked the breakfast prep, but McGuire paddling Keaton's dive suit like a dinghy is just lol funny. Also when McGuire threw Keaton a life preserver but it bonked him in the head and sunk him."
70 75% Sherlock Jr. (1924) - Jan 17, 2022
"The Sherlock plot is fairly thin, but the physical comedy is amazing considering he's doing all these stunts. I was confused about what being a "sheik" meant since I imagined it meant a rich/powerful person, like Ruldolph Valentino's The Sheik, but the one here's poorer than Buster Keaton. Fav scenes: out-of-body experience into the movie screen (how did he do that?) and the motorcycle chase."
60 60% Major Dundee (1965) - Jan 17, 2022
"Extended cut. "Moby Dick on horseback." Nice setup getting the gang together but the film lacks personality. There's an epic scale but the men don't come together after a month. Distinctive characters and Heston/Harris play well off each other, but no answers to the questions posed. 2/3 through a glamorous Senta Berger appears to prolong the conflict, but leaves just as abruptly though she ably names Heston's problem. Fav scene: deciding what to do with the deserter who realizes his own fate. "
