    Ghostbusters 2016

    ★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2016

    Not the crapfest I expected or others said it was, but I expected better from Paul Feig and Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. The numerous cameos by the original cast were a little much. More distracting than anything else. Chris Hemsworth (intentionally or unintentionally) played the perfect doofus and should really stick to hammering out Thor movies. If it was intentional, I hate to see what he will do next.

    The bad guy/spirit was nothing. He didn't do anything for…

    Ghostbusters 1984

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 21 Oct, 2016

    It came, we saw, we laughed our asses off! Recently, I showed the original Ghostbusters to my teenage daughter because she wanted to see the 2016 version and it was a compromise. While the new movie is not the total crapfest some make it out to be. it does have some ecto-plasmic odor to it.

    However, the original Ghostbusters has not lost any of its humor or fun. Yeah, it's a little wistful seeing Harold Ramis on screen but for being filmed over 32 years ago, I feel its better than most comedies out there today

    The Accountant 2016

    ★½ Watched 15 Oct, 2016

    Totally predictable movie that once again proves my theory that Ben Affleck acts better in movies he directs. Not to say he was horrible in "The Accountant", but the character he plays, having autistic/Asperger's Syndrome (the movie doesn't really clarify which), is one that would be hard to pull off even for Al Pacino in his heyday. It is not a role I would have picked for Affleck. Got to give him credit for trying.

    That being said, this movie…

    Deepwater Horizon 2016

    ½ Watched 04 Oct, 2016 1

    I like Mark Wahlberg and for the most part, Peter Berg. The trailers left me feeling "meh". I went on a discount day hoping to be surprised or not feeling that I wasted money if I didn't like it. Well, I fell asleep twice inside the first hour. I didn't even make it to the disaster. I can count on one hand how many movies I've walked out of. I think Troy was the last one. I must be in a small minority but i cant see how this was certified "fresh".
