  • The Peanuts Movie

    The Peanuts Movie 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Nov, 2015

    This is a cute movie. The new animation style works surprisingly well. The film includes a lot of the bits from the comic, so it's like seeing the strips pieced together with an overarching story to keep it moving forward.

    The movie focuses on Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Unfortunately, it feels a bit long and drawn out at times, especially Snoopy's Red Baron scenes. I would've preferred it if the movie trimmed those down and spent more time with other…

  • Robin Hood

    Robin Hood 2010

    ★★ Watched 16 Nov, 2015

    I always wondered why they bothered to make a new Robin Hood film. What could this one bring to the table that the many before it hadn't already?

    Turns out, what it brings to the table is a prequel story. A muddled, packed-to-the-brim, uninspiring prequel story. It's dark, dramatic, action packed, and devoid of fun.

    Ridley Scott's Robin Hood wasn't able to hold my undivided attention, so I wasn't actually able to follow the entire story, because I didn't realize…

  • The Thing

    The Thing 1982

    ★★★★★ Added

    This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done that even decades later they remain a disturbing sight; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.

    The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.

    I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.

  • Army of Darkness

    Army of Darkness 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Aug, 2013 4

    Just found my MGM Region 3 Director's Cut buried in a pile of DVDs. Groovy.

    The movie is 93 minutes long with some alternate takes and the original ending. It's awesome, though I do miss "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."

    Army of Darkness is a ridiculous, campy, over-the-top slapstick comedy in which the goofy Ash manages to make life a lot more difficult for everyone he meets. There really is nothing like a Bruce Campbell one-liner.
