    "We Bought a Zoo"
    I'm glad I didn't buy this movie.

  • JFK: The Smoking Gun

    JFK: The Smoking Gun 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Aug, 2015

    This was a pretty interesting look at the JFK assassination. It brings up new conspiracies and asks more questions than it answers, but it is still entertaining to look at the "what ifs."

  • The Lego Movie

    Everything is awesome!

  • Tales from the Darkside

    Tales from the Darkside 1990

    ★★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2015

    This was enjoyable enough for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I especially liked the POV cat-cam from the second story. All the stories are a bit weak, but with some good character actors and just the right amount of cheese, they are quite entertaining.

  • Chronic-Con, Episode 420: A New Dope

    Chronic-Con, Episode 420: A New Dope 2015

    ★★ Watched 11 Aug, 2015

    This is about a comedian who gets high and walks around comic-con. That's pretty much the entire movie, as it never gets any deeper than that. As long as you understand that, it was entertaining enough for and hour plus.

  • Hitchcock

    Hitchcock 2012

    ★★½ Watched 08 Aug, 2015

    Anthony Hopkins was perfect as Alfred Hitchcock, but the rest of the movie was just there. The final line in the movie fit this film quite nicely: "I find myself, once again, quite bereft of any inspiration." The time spent watching this film would have been better spent just watching an actual Hitchcock movie.

  • Jurassic Park

    Hold on to your butts!

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2015

    Kick-Ass turns into James Bond
    This was immensely better than I thought it was going to be. Matthew Vaughn really knows how to inject comedy at just the right times that keeps the action going as well.

  • Hits

    Hits 2014

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    This reminded me of a toned down version of God Bless America.

  • Them

    Them 2006

    ★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    Nothing new or outstanding in this horror/slasher flick. The lighting was terrible and the couple made entirely too much sound for people trying to hide. We also never find out any motivation or back-story of the killers, making the film pointless. It was good for a mindless watch, but don't expect too much from it.

  • Vice

    Vice 2015

    ★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    This was like an extended episode of Outer Limits. That describes the feel and the depth of the storyline. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good enough to be a full length film. Also speaking of Outer Limits, I just watched an episode last night with Johnathan Schaech and wondered whatever happened to him. Lo and behold he shows up in this movie the very next day.
    At least Thomas Jane seemed like he was having a lot of fun…

  • An Amish Murder

    An Amish Murder 2013

    ★★½ Watched 18 Jul, 2015

    This wasn't bad for a Lifetime movie. They're always great to turn off your brain and have on in the background.
