    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2014

    I enjoyed this movie, not quite as much as Oblivion and Jack Reacher. I think time travel type movies usually have an uphill climb with me. It's well acted and directed. I really liked the alien design though once again we get a movie with the lynchpin solution. In the same vein, I think Source Code was a better movie.

  • The War of the Robots 1978

    Watched 17 Jun, 2012 1

    Contains one of the longest, most tediously boring space battles ever put on film. Watching a guy play asteroids would have been more exciting. Still, it was worth a few good chuckles at just how silly it was. It was also interesting to note the influence of Star Wars on this film, from glowing swords to similar situations and dialogue.

    Favorite line: "To hell with Lois!"

  • Cutthroat Island 1995

    I don't know what movie John Debney was watching when he composed his rousing score, but it sure wasn't the one I saw.

    Never been a Geena Davis fan but this is the nadir of her acting ability. So many lines that just miss, badly. I love pulp-adventure pirate movies and age of sail films in general, but the climax looks like a bad Vegas show. The most impressive thing in the movie is that it appears a number of the lead actors did their own rope stunts.

    Oh, and for god-sakes someone kill that monkey.
