  • The Last Days Of Pompeii

    The Last Days Of Pompeii 1935

    ★★★ Watched 20 May, 2015

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

    I thought this was going to be a simple story about a family or a dude and his lady in the last days of Pompeii. Silly me. I was surprised at the religious angle because I wasn't expecting it. This film is about a family of sorts but it's a morality tale taken very seriously. Jesus is a character that we never actually get to see but plays an important role. I quite enjoyed this epic tale and it was…

  • The Rescuers

    The Rescuers 1977

    ★★★★ Rewatched 22 May, 2015

    Haven't seen Disney's animated classic The Rescuers since I was a child and it's still a solid watch. Viewed this with my five year old boy and he laughed himself silly and was totally invested. That's the beauty of animation when done well, it can still speak to a child or an adult decades after the fact.

    What can you say about Disney's animated films, they're usually very entertaining. The Rescuers has a wonderful voice cast and a silly fun story. Sure the animation style is outdated by today's standards but it doesn't matter, the story is timeless. The Rescuers is still as charming as ever.

    Fifty Shades of Grey 2015

    ★★★ Watched 16 May, 2015

    Surprisingly decent but overall boring. The book was boring as well. Some cringe worthy roll your eyes dialog but it's expected and sometimes straight from the source material. I was surprised at how close it was to the novel, few things were changed and for the most part it was an improvement. This film is actually better then it's source material. Hands down this whole thing rests on Dakota Johnson's shoulders. She is absolutely adorable and she sells not only…

  • Commando

    Commando 1985

    ★★★★ Rewatched 25 Apr, 2015

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

    During my rewatch I realized that outside of the typical 80s movie score, the pay phones and the poor tasting Boy George joke, Commando is pretty ageless. A solid film with some great action. It's super awesome.

    There's something about action films of the 80s that I love. It's probably because that's what I grew up on and the nostaliga factor is high. My top three are The Delta Force, Cobra and my favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Commando. Every time…
