  • The Dream Team

    The Dream Team 1989

    ★★★ Watched 02 Aug, 2015

    A virtually forgotten mental patient comedy coming right around the time Michael Keaton was on the verge of a Bruce Wayne-sized explosion in his career, The Dream Team could only be enjoyable to those who are Keaton-completists.

    In an odd way, this is his comic version of Clean and Sober, which came less than a year before. Its existence really won't shock the world, but for whatever reason I seem to revisit it once every few years.

    As far as action movies go, this instantly made it to my all-time favorites list.

    I saw this on opening night, but I've waited two days to write down some of my thoughts on it and it already feels like I'm late to the party. There have been countless reviews logged in on here as of late, so I feel compelled to keep this semi-short and ultra-sweet, because its outrageous brilliance is no longer a mystery.

    We knew it would only be a matter of time before Tarantino would create an epic spaghetti western, and…
