"Excruciatingly slow paced and laced throughout with thought provoking imagery and dialog. Russian art is some of the most cerebral stuff in the world. This movie was wonderful but it is a film that I would need to watch 20 more times just to figure out what is going on, let alone start picking away at some of the more subtle storytelling done through the cinematography and direction. I like this movie because it is an enigma and I'm sure I will enjoy watching it again. "
|50 6%||Star (2001) - Jun 20, 2019
"We get it Guy Ritchie was into Madonna. Too bad Madonna isn't a good actress. All I can say about this short film is that they made it and while it had some cool scenes. It wasn't very entertaining. "
|80 60%||Father of the Year (2018) - Jun 16, 2019
"Father of the Year was way better than I had imagined. The story that they told in this movie is funny and it has a lot of heart. The acting is well done. There are some performers here that I haven't seen before but I can tell that they have the potential to really make a mark for themselves in Hollywood. I was glad that they brought back some Happy Madison regulars but they were given background roles besides Spade. If Happy Madison wants to stay relevant they need to showcase some new talent."
|100 95%||Snatch (2000) - Jun 16, 2019
"Snatch is the perfect follow-up to Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. Ritchie brings a lot of the cast back to this movie and I think actually does a better job of telling a story in this movie. The addition of Del Toro, Farina, Pitt, and Ford were all sublime. Alan Ford's portrayal of Brick Top was my favorite performance in the movie. I love the way Ritchie tells a few different stories and melds them together throughout the movie. I could watch this movie over and over again. "
|80 60%||Tower Heist (2011) - Jun 14, 2019
"Tower Heist is very funny mixed with some action and crime story elements. This movie has a good mix of dark comedy and normal comedy. It's good to see Eddie Murphy back doing some exciting roles. I wish he would act more. Broderick is understated yet fantastic. Alan Alda is getting good at playing characters that you can't help but hate. Tea Leoni, who I haven't seen in much lately, makes a return and steals the show. Michael Pena is a superstar on the way up. He is so funny. "
|80 60%||Trailer Park Boys: The Movie (2006) - Jun 07, 2019
"If you don't like Trailer Park Boys you won't like this movie length episode. If you do like Trailer Park Boys then this movie is right up your alley. There isn't much else to say. "
|90 83%||Batman Begins (2005) - Jun 07, 2019
"Batman Begins is a great start to the Nolan trilogy of Batman films. It was a bit long in the tooth but that is par for the course when it comes to comic book movies in the twenty-first century. The power of the acting is really what does it for this movie. Bale's Batman is sublime - brooding with just a bit of swagger, at least in this first movie. Liam Neeson was a perfect choice for Ra's Al Ghul and that reveal was well paced and a bit of a shock. Oldman was also a perfect choice for Gordon. "
|100 95%||Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) - Jun 07, 2019
"Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels is the first Guy Richie movie I ever watched. The characters that were brought together in this story are fleshed out and very memorable. This was American's introduction to Jason Statham who has since become a huge star but, at the time, was just one of four guys in this crime caper. The writing in this movie is funny and clever. It was especially cool to see the use of subtitles to accentuate the differences in language. "
|80 60%||Rush Hour (1998) - Jun 07, 2019
"Rush Hour is a great comedy action movie. Chris Tucker is a local LA cop who has to babysit Jackie Chan while he is in LA. This was one of the first big American blockbusters for Jackie Chan and he paired well with Tucker. Tucker is at his best here. He is funny, cocky, yet likable. The story was pretty well done as well. The reveal of Jintau was surprising to me the first time I watched it. I really liked the Hispanic cop who helps Tucker's character. It is just dumb fun and that's it. "
|70 32%||Wine Country (2019) - Jun 07, 2019
"Wine Country was funny at times. I understand the movie they were trying to make and maybe that movie just wasn't made for me. I wanted to like the movie more and I found myself almost making myself laugh out loud at times to justify this but, in the end, it was a forgettable movie. The acting was fantastic. I loved Tina Fey in this movie but I can't understand why she wasn't utilized more. I liked some of the more calm dramatic moments but then the comedy seemed to be tamed a bit too. "
