    Three on a Match 1932

    ★★★½ Rewatched 24 Mar, 2015

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

    A briskly paced morality tale. With sixty three minutes or so runtime there isn't much time for character development but the film manages to hit the important details the film makers want to get across. You do end up caring a bit for the characters and their circumstances. Some good performances from the cast make this an enjoyable precode film from the early 1930s. While some aspects might feel outdated the positive and negative decisions of the characters still excist…

    ★★½ Watched 19 Mar, 2015

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

    A misguided attempt with sparks of goodness.

    A bunch of folks get trapped in a cave while on a tour. All the warning signs were there of a possible cave in but you know, must press forward in a diaster flick.

    Forgive me, my thoughts are all scattered. This was something else I tell ya. I liked the opening naration with what looked like those old fashioned toy soldiers. It reminded me of pop up books.

    For Colored Girls 2010

    ★½ Watched 16 Jul, 2012

    Jesus Christ. If you like over the top misery, this films for you. I absolutely hated that every male character was portrayed as a villain and every female character was a victim. There's a certain storyline that for me came across as homophobic. Such great actress (not Janet Jackson) giving some really good performances, they gave their all to try and sell the melodramatic tales of woe. The last shot of this film is exactly like the last shot of Waiting to Exhale which is a far superior film. Just saying.
