  • Stray Cat Rock: Wild Jumbo 1970

  • John Wick 2014

    ★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2014

    It's a lot like watching someone else play a video game - entertaining, but with a few "hey, why don't you just do this instead" moments. Wilem Dafoe's character had a name, I guess, but he might as well have been named deus ex machina. The most fascinating part of the film is the weird underground assassin culture and economy of tokens that borders on the supernatural. Which makes it worth the cost of admission. At least at matinee prices.

    Ever say to yourself "I wish there were a mod romcom about mathematical analog code cracking with punchcards and LSD"?

    ★★½ Watched 12 Sep, 2014

    Oh, it's trying to both satirize action racing pictures and be an action racing picture. There's an over-the-top sense of humor there. There's also lots of explosions of expensive bikes, cars, props. But it ends up feeling like you've watched two hours of a Pepsi commercial dreamed up by Kid Rock.

    I loved DETENTION. I can see inklings of the brilliance of DETENTION in this. But this is certainly no DETENTION.
