  • The Karate Kid, Part III 1989

    ★★½ Watched 17 Sep, 2014

    Just terrible. I give it a couple of stars for the cartoonishness of the villains and a few moments that make me laugh or pump fist a little.

    But the fighting is laughable compared to the last movies and the storyline is just dumb. And Ralph Macchio just can't act at all.

  • Open Range 2003

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 03 Sep, 2014

    I think this is probably my favorite contemporary western. Actually, probably my favorite western, period.

    Robert Duvall is always great, but holy crap is he amazing in this. The nuance and humor and leadership and sadness and anger and child-like nature and down to earth and good human being all around is just too much fun to watch happen (that moment when he explains about the shooting of the dog to Annette Bening is gold).

    Kevin Costner is too cool…

  • The Adventures of Tintin 2011

    ★★ Added 16

    Incredibly boring with unflattering characters and attempts at comedy that had me eye rolling ever bit as much as I was checking my watch. No stakes, no story, no intrigue. Just a series of set pieces that, for the most part, linger on nothing of interest.

    The character of Tin Tin himself is as bland as he appears. Wish I would've skipped this one.

  • Chicago 2002

    ★★½ Watched 26 Feb, 2013 2

    This movie beat The Pianist? Fuck you.
