100 96% Das Boot (1981) - Rated 30 May 2024
"Das Boot is the epitome of classic cinema. The tension that the audience feels in this movie is incredible. Right away before any action occurs we are presented with the claustrophobic feeling of just being on this boat with so many people. There is a fair bit of tension between the old guard who can see how poorly lead they are versus the younger militant members of the military. There are some great battle scenes in this movie that keep the audience on edge. The acting and score are superb."
90 84% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) - Rated 16 Apr 2024
"I loved this movie. Thor: Ragnarok is the best of these Avengers team solo movies. It still doesn't top Guardians in my book but it is very, very close. I loved that they explored more of Thor and Loki's relationship. The budding romance between Thor and the Valkyrie was cute. The end of Odin was sad but it felt like it was time. Cate Blancett as Hela is perfect. The music is great. The only gripe I have is the Hulk stuff was too goofy for me. I'll definitely watch it again."
80 62% John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) - Rated 14 Apr 2024
"Chapter 2 adds a bit more depth to the world of John Wick but we don't really get much more depth concerning the main characters. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. John Wick is a pretty lifeless character. He is a murder machine. He had a person whom he cared for who, in turn, gave him a dog. One died, the other was killed. The killing machine started again. In this chapter, the reason for his killings are more linked to the syndicate that he belongs to and their rules. That was interesting."
90 84% Inside Out (2015) - Rated 09 Apr 2024
"Pixar has never been a company that has shied away from dealing with the difficult issues one faces as a child growing up. Inside Out is no different except that it focuses more on the raw emotions in a bit more of a clinical way that some may be able to accept. I found myself having real moments with my son talking about why the characters were acting in a certain way and how that pertained to Riley herself. I love that the parents, as usual, take somewhat of a side role in this film."
90 84% Metropolis (1927) - Rated 09 Apr 2024
"I watched the most recent cut of this film and while I can respect the place that it deserves in film lexicon, I just couldn't get too comfortable with the run time. The acting is great. It's very much silent movie era overacting but there is some subtly to some of the performances as well that make those moments so special. As a sci-fi movie fan, I love that one of the oldest quote unquote films is of that genre. The design of the automaton is very cool. The actress' performance is scary."
80 62% Crimson Tide (1995) - Rated 07 Apr 2024
"Crimson Tide does a lot of the good things a Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott movie should do. It's got pulse pounding scenes of physical action and potentially world ending moments. It's got a score by Hans Zimmer that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It's got solid acting from some of the best stars. I don't think that this movie is as realistic as some other sub movies but it's more fun. I wasn't completely satisfied with the ending of the race plot but that's didn't hold it back."
80 62% Dune: Part Two (2024) - Rated 04 Apr 2024
"I enjoyed Dune: Part Two much more than the first one. I enjoyed how ill at ease I was for much of the movie. There was a lot more lore going on in this movie than in the last movie which was one of my biggest gripes. The other big gripe I had about the first movie was not remedied in this movie which is that it's just too damn long. I was able to forgive this one because it was chock full of action and storytelling. (I might bump my score up to 90 once I watch it again.)"
80 62% Dumbo (1941) - Rated 09 Mar 2024
"Dumbo might not hold up to modern standards but it still is a good film. The story of a mother's love is a wonderful story for the intended audience. I didn't find the crows as offensive as I remember them being but the song that the men sing while putting up the tent is definitely one the deserves to stay in the past. I found the drunken hallucination pretty funny from a modern perspective but it was also visually stunning, especially in 4K. It's a great movie with a perfect pace."
80 62% The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) - Rated 22 Feb 2024
"Even with all of the overwrought religious symbolism throughout the film, Narnia is still a fun adventure between the forces of good and bad. It is the perfect movie for a young adolescent who is ready to see something with a bit more adult themes than they may be used to. Tilda Swinton as the White Queen is perfection. Liam Neeson is spot-on as the voice of Aslan. Jim Broadbent belongs in any movie based in the U.K. The kid actors were good. The special effects aren't great. It's a lot of fun."
40 3% Prisoners of the Sun (2013) - Rated 20 Feb 2024
"Prisoners of the Sun had brief moments of Egyptian adventure that made it just good enough to watch. The story is a mix of Egyptology and alien mythology. I though the acting was okay overall. The movie looked much better than it had any right to look and some of the effects were good. The script was just terrible and cliched. I don't think I would ever watch it again but if they made a sequel, which they hit you over the head with at the end, I will check that out. Enjoy it on a rainy day."
