    Auric Goldfinger is a ridiculous villain. He is like someone's annoying uncle, not some criminal mastermind.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film has an interesting moral compass, with all the characters doing illegal things that they each can justify as being for some noble cause. Yolandi, Ninja, and America are going to pull a heist to get out of the crime game. Deon steals the damaged police robot so that he can test out his AI, massively advancing technology and creating artificial life. Even Hugh Jackman's character can justify his actions, under the belief that human's should have complete control over all technology. I like this about the film.

    I felt like Doc Sportello when he sees Bigfoot Bjornsen on TV in Inherent Vice when I saw Michael J. Fox on screen in this. I was like "Aw, Michael J Fox, you're adorable".

    ★★★ Watched 17 Jun, 2015

    So I have no idea why this movie is called My Darling Clementine. The titular character Clementine you would think would play a key role in the film, but she really doesn't. She only serves to add conflict between Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp, but her lack of screen time makes this conflict feel forced. I mean, the women on the poster isn't even the Clementine character, that's how little Clementine is in the film. At least the film looks…

    A war film that suggests that surviving a war doesn't necessarily make you one of the lucky ones.

    Definitely find the movie very enjoyable, but there is some pretentious stuff in it that doesn't land.

    Netflix has this in full screen. What is up with that? What year is this again?

    I watched the original short film of this today, and it is amazing how far the concept and idea came from that initial short. All the seeds are there, but nothing is even as close to as polished as everything is in the final film.

    This nothing film somehow escaped the Home Box Office and made its way to the silver screen. I think my opinion of the film is best summed up by the fact that I was apparently, according to Brother Filmape whom I saw the movie with, making audible sighs of disapproval throughout the film. I had no idea that I was doing this, but it definitely showcases my thoughts on the film.

    This is just a vehicle for Paul Rudd to do his Paul Rudd thing, and while it is just fluff, it is at least enjoyable fluff.

    Story time

    I bought five tickets for this film's first showing in IMAX when the tickets first went on sale a few weeks ago. I got the seats that I prefer in IMAX. Top row, away from the door, and everything was a-okay. We get to the theatre, and brother FilmApe is up to the seats before I am, so I look up and see him talking with three people who are sitting in our seats. They have three of…

    So while I was watching this, I got to thinking about whether or not the baseball diamond would have that much of an affect on the amount of planting acreage for the Kinsella farm, particularly whether or not the affect would be great enough to place a financial burden on them, so much so that they would risk losing their farm. I looked up how many acres a baseball diamond is, and then I looked up what the profit per…
