Bio: I'm going to fudge my rankings and uprank movies that are my actual favorites. My favorite movies are rarely the best in craft. And while one of my favorites may be the expertly crafted The Godfather, I'm not going to be using this unique opportunity to recommend you something you already know you should see. If you were waiting for me personally to convince you to watch Seven Samurai, you have put too much pressure on a guy that likes Michael Dudikoff films. I had previously given Ravenous an 86 when in reality it's a 75 tops. Now it's a 100. Welcome to my recommendations.

64 45% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) - 29 Feb 2024
"It's an okay Neeson actioner that is greatly benefitted by listening to the Writer's Commentary but for some reason they hid it behind a bunch of menus on the blu-ray. Honestly, it takes like 12 steps to get to it."
65 48% 8 Million Ways to Die (1986) - 29 Feb 2024
"After opening in a cemetery (as all movies should) this takes about fifteen minutes to get to a flashback montage then waits about twenty minutes to do another one! Lots to like but it flounders a bit until Tony Lister pops up by sprinting into a scene in what has to be his greatest cameo (I know it's not a cameo when you're just fighting to get on screen). Alexandra Paul leaves an impression or rather shattered the one I had of her based almost entirely on recollections of Baywatch."
44 13% Joe the King (1999) - 28 Feb 2024
"Val Kilmer's performance withstanding, I did not enjoy this, which may well be the point, but sometimes you make your point too well. I'm looking at you Reflecting Skin. Frank Whaley does a fine job behind the camera which I didn't know was a thing but might look into further. A friend of mine noted that in his attempts to watch film festival movies he's learned to walk away from anything that says "coming of age" and he's smarter than I am."
64 45% Joe Kidd (1972) - 28 Feb 2024
"As far as Eastwood westerns are concerned this could've been called Joe Schmoe."
13 0% Joe & Joe (1996) - 27 Feb 2024
"A comedy devoid of humor isn't much for anyone. There's a hint of Dumb and Dumber at play between the two leads but none of their exploits elicit laughs. There's also a weird video game like plotline of needing to level up materials in order to advance. And of course, there's the Lawnmower Man association both in their practice and their intelligence. These title themes may be the death of me but for every Joe & Joe there's a Greenfingers or a Sanctuary (2016). Isn't life itself a crapshoot?"
72 72% Joe (2014) - 27 Feb 2024
"Great story about a regular man affecting change by doing right. I'm kind of shocked that with such a regular down to Earth character, someone completely common, an everyman even, that they went with such an average name, Joe...Wait. Nope. Now I'm getting it. Now I'm getting it."
69 59% Joe (1970) - 27 Feb 2024
"Your uncle in full Facebook mode gets attached to a rich guy that murdered his daughter's drugged out boyfriend until things go sideways at an orgy and he opts for a murderous rampage of his own. It's a tale as old as time really."
47 17% The Adam Project (2022) - 26 Feb 2024
"I think we're at a weird time period specifically for stories when it comes to movies/television and streaming. There are tv series that unquestionably are bloated because there isn't enough story for that format, and there's The Adam Project that is trying to fit in a series worth of emotional reveals without enough time to warrant any impact. I applaud the attempts but if your time constrained than you need to focus that attention on either action, or drama. This in-between did nothing for me."
55 29% The Philadelphia Experiment (1984) - 26 Feb 2024
"The real Philadelphia experiment was Water Ice and the jury's still out in my opinion."
60 38% The Final Countdown (1980) - 23 Feb 2024
"The Twilight Zone story is interesting enough to warrant some patience as they deal with an impossible situation and focus just as much attention on the crew's reaction to the plotline as the plotline itself. Confused me initially when they weren't headin' for Venus."
