    Captain America: Civil War 2016

    ★★★ Watched 18 May, 2016

    DCP: This movie has more characters than a Robert Altman movie. If that sounds good to you, then you'll dig it. As someone who is sick or comic book movies and only saw this movie because it was free - I was surprised at how good the final hour was. The first 90 minutes are filled with your typical modern day comic book crap. So I guess in the Marvel Universe, superheroes can all move twice as fast. That seems…

  • Trumbo

    Trumbo 2015

    ★★ Watched 19 May, 2016

    DVD: If only the director actually listened to the speech Trumbo gave in 1970 depicted in this film - the movie would have turned out so much better. "There were no heroes or villains - just victims." If only Jay Roach had 3% of the brains and class Dalton Trumbo had.

    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.
