  • MASH

    MASH 1970

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 07 Apr, 2015

    Hawk Eye and Trapper John are in no way two men to aspire to be but my previous three star rating based on "offensive depictions" has me falling in line with Frank and "Hot Lips". As troubling as the "Hot Lips" character is treated by both characters and filmmaker, to focus solely on the offensive material is to become what the movie is condemning, self seriousness and close minded rule following.

  • The Long, Long Trailer

    The Long, Long Trailer 1954

    ★★½ Watched 23 Mar, 2015

    Plays as an extended I Love Lucy episode, the charm is there but really is just a money job trying to capture MGM's success with the marriage comedy after Father of the Bride and Father's Little Dividend.

    Kill Squad 1982

    ★★★★★ Watched 04 Mar, 2015

    The only way the film could be more fun is if Joseph needed more guys and there were more villains that didn't know where Dutch was.

  • Cop

    Cop 1988

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Feb, 2015 2

    -"Why can't they fly, Dutch? Why can't they fly like us?"
    -"No wings my friend. Nothing they do by themselves is much fun, they gotta have a man or it doesn't matter"

    As the criminals get more violent the detective's code becomes more corrupt. "Innocence kills" and Phillip Marlowe got redefined by the Reagan presidency and Hopkins is the product at the end of it.
