  • 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.

  • Daddy's Home

    Daddy's Home 2015

    ★★½ Watched 10 Jun, 2016

    DVD: Some good laughs, feels longer than it is but at least the film is under 95 minutes. Thomas Haden Church steals the show though - the man is great with comedy and I wish I was seeing him in more films.

    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.
