  • Too Much Johnson

    Too Much Johnson 1938

    ★★½ Watched 05 May, 2015

    Saw the workprint version on TCM and it was interesting. I think a completed version could have been great but despite some interesting camera-work this version drags on. Joseph Cotten is amazing in it though.

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★ Watched 02 May, 2015

    Going back and forth on this being 3 or 3 1/2 stars, defaulting towards the more conservative rank. I loved some of the characters, particularly the new ones, but found a lot of the action sequences uninteresting. Mostly my taste for the superhero movies has been in decline. In general, I think the movies succeed in depicting the characters but they fail in what makes superheroes work so well in comics - big action.

  • The Hunger

    The Hunger 1983

    ★★½ Watched 05 Apr, 2015

    Emphasis on style gives this movie a very dated feel, but there's some effective scenes.

  • The Lone Ranger

    The Lone Ranger 2013

    ★★ Watched 05 Apr, 2015

    I like Hammer as John Reid and Depp ends up being surprisingly tolerable as Tonto, but the movie feels like a bloated mess, a combination of current blockbusters and 'homages' to other movies. But hey, it's better than Legend of the Lone Ranger.
