    Ghostbusters 2016

    ½ Watched 20 Jul, 2016

    3D DCP: I wanted this movie to be excellent on so many levels. I wanted this to be the Ghostbusters movie for my kid.
    This is the worst movie I have seen in a theater in a long time. Only laughed 3 times - and none were caused any by our protagonists. I really wanted this movie to be good - but it's bad. So very bad. Don't let all those idiot movie "critics" and the tomatometer fool you.
    You have been warned.

  • Erin Brockovich

    Erin Brockovich 2000

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jun, 2016

    Streaming: Saw it for the first time and it's so good I want to let go of my disdain for Soderbergh for making such horrible films like THE GOOD GERMAN and OCEAN'S 12.
    The only thing that dates the film is Thomas Newman's left over music cues from AMERICAN BEAUTY and PAY IT FORWARD. Roberts did deserve that Best Actress Oscar she won that year.

    I was visiting Los Angeles in 1999 and saw this at a test screening - so I had no idea what movie I was about to see.
    That's my review. I wanted to explain why I saw this movie.

    Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
    Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
