    Cause for Alarm 1951

    ★★½ Watched 31 Jul, 2015

    I wasn't looking too forward to this one because I'm not a big Loretta Young fan, but it was the only one remaining on my DVR shorter than 75 minutes (which is all I can get through during naptime). And I was not wrong. This had a really interesting premise (a man with a heart condition thinks his wife and doctor are slowly murdering him so he writes a letter to the DA accusing them - when he dies, his…

  • The Threat

    The Threat 1949

    ★★★ Watched 30 Jul, 2015

    Tight and simple little crime thriller, with a hard, almost cruel streak that worked for the film. Kidnapping, double-crossing, escaped bank robbers/killers, police in pursuit, girls with guns, and all in just over an hour.

    Iron Man 2 2010

    ★★ Watched 26 Apr, 2012 2

    I figured I'd go ahead and watch this before The Avengers comes out, since I had missed it in theatres the year it came out. "Missed" isn't the right word. I heard bad things about it and opted not to go. And yeah, this movie is pretty boring, especially for an action movie. There are only like two and a half actual action scenes in it.

    The first hour or so I was kind of bored stiff - there were…

  • The Raid

    The Raid 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2012 1

    For a little while I was afraid I'd misheard and it was gonna be all guns, which would've been boring and just needlessly violent (in a boring way). But then the hand-to-hand stuff started, and all of that was awesome. So yeah. Just enough story to string a nearly 100-minute long fight scene on, and that was enough. Also, it was surprisingly well-paced for basically being a long fight scene, with some breather sections in there at just the right times. Definitely had fun with this.
