  • The Invitation

    The Invitation 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2016

    Streaming: Look - I really don't know how I feel about this film - or what star rating to give it. I do know that this is a pretty accurate portrayal of people living in the Hollywood Hills. And the title could be changed to: The Landmark Forum - The Movie.

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 2016

    ½ Watched 28 Aug, 2016

    DVD: It's just as bad as everything you've been told - only worse. Nothing makes sense. A chance for some character development (and a connection to what stops the big fight) between Clark and Martha Kent is limited to a 30 second scene that provably took the editor only 5 minutes to edit.
    Who knew that what all the fan boys were so sure was going to be the worst thing in the movie turned out to be the best thing in the movie: Affleck as Bruce Wayne.

    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.
