"Don Jon wasn't that hot. The trailers made it seem pretty good but it doesn't move past the tagline of the movie. The acting is really well done. The movie could have just been happy with keeping things between Gordon-Levitt and Johansson but they turned things around by adding Moore into the mix. I didn't really see that plot line coming but it was welcome. For how dull the characters were, the story rewards itself by being a pretty unique love story. It wasn't good but it wasn't bad. "

"I've never seen the original anime but this movie got me very interested in the adventures of Captain Harlock. The animation in this movie is amazing. The voicework in the Japanese version is done by very well known Japanese voice actors. (I'm not sure about the English version.) The story follows a group of pirates who are going to blow up 100 bombs in hopes that the universe's time line is disrupted and humanity can start again. The story is handled well for an anime - it's easy to follow."
|80 61%||The Dictator (2012) - Jan 26, 2019
"I found The Dictator to be much funnier than other Cohen movies. Where Borat and Bruno seem insensitive, The Dictator seems like a satire that most people can get behind. I love seeing Anna Faris in a large role like this and her character in this movie is just as funny as Cohen's. John C. Reilly's character, while small, proved to be very funny. Kingsley proves once again that his is the most versatile actor in the world. I would watch this movie again and enjoy it. "
|80 61%||Zoolander (2001) - Jan 26, 2019
"Zoolander is one of those rare comedy movies from the early 2000s that holds up. There are some dated jokes but for the most part this movie holds up nearly twenty years later. There are some great cameo appearances that are somewhat under-utilized but they don't take anything away from the movie. Jerry Stiller does a fantastic job in this movie. He upstages his own son at points. This is one of Farrell's iconic performances. The scene with the reading center is still uproarious. "
|80 61%||Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) - Jan 26, 2019
"Man! People love to bitch. I enjoyed this movie a lot. I watched it on Netflix and, once I was finished, I immediately wanted to watch it again. Alden Ehrenreich does a fair job of playing Han Solo. There were moments where I felt like someone else could have done a better job but there were also some great moments as well. Donald Glover was fantastic. I could watch a solo movie with him as Calrissian. I have no idea whey Jon Favreau was chosen to voice the alien. Everything else was a treat. "

"Films have always excelled at teaching us about the unknown and this film teaches the audience about Greenland while telling a touching story about a father and a son as well as two friends. The film only touches on the problems that modern Greenlanders are facing. This isn't a complaint because if the audience wants more on that they should watch a documentary. The characters and experiences are well portrayed in this movie. There is sadness throughout the movie but also a message of hope. "
|70 33%||American Anarchist (2016) - Jan 18, 2019
"This documentary is interesting in the moments where William Powell is talking about the history of his relationship with his titular handbook. Some of the questions posed by the documentarian are well thought out and biting. You can tell that Powell and his wife are not comfortable with the presence of Siskel in their lives because he is bring back something that they have tried hard to move past. There are other moments where Siskel is bating Powell into a revelation that never comes. "

"A fascinating look at a relatively unknown artist of the twentieth century. The documentary is shot well and it does a great job of focusing on the cracks and crevasses of the sculpture and art of Szukalski. I would say that the main focus of the documentary is the awesome art of this brass Polish artist. But, with all artists we have to look at the person behind the art to really get a glimpse into the meaning. Szukalski is a complicated man, like any, he lived a long life of happiness and pain"
|90 84%||Minority Report (2002) - Jan 14, 2019
"Minority Report is another great adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story to the big screen. I tend to harp on movies that are too long. I think it is a problem in recent Hollywood movies but this movie was long but it was paced perfectly and it kept the audience engaged the whole time. Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise. I don't have anything bad to say. Colin Farrell is pretty forgettable. Standouts like Stormare and von Sydow are wonderful in this movie. I've seen this a few times and will see it again too"
|60 15%||Beverly Hills Ninja (1997) - Jan 03, 2019
"Beverly Hills Ninja isn't one of the better Farley movies. It was just a cash-in on his popularity during the time. The inclusion of Chris Farley did a lot to help keep the movie funny but the story was just stupid and not the right kind of the stupid for this kind of comedy. Farley does a good job of playing the inept ninja and there are quite a few good bits but the story won't hold anybodies attention. The audience, like me, will continue watching this movie just to get to the next bit. "
