  • The Road to El Dorado

    The Road to El Dorado 2000

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Dec, 2016

    What a delight.

    The Elton John songs are pretty forgettable, but the awesome Bruckheimer-era Zimmer score makes up for it.

  • The Wailing

    The Wailing 2016

    ★★ Watched 03 Dec, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Time to jump on the backlash train!

    This thing is long. Like, really long. Maybe there's a nice 90 min movie in here, I don't know. Mistakes cynicism for depth. Uninteresting main character. People complain about J.J. Abrams' mystery box storytelling and then praise this? Whoa, Momma.

    Nice Devil makeup, though.

    No sunglasses on the dog in the actual movie - disappointing.

  • Angel Heart

    Angel Heart 1987

    Mickey Rourke is a schlubby PI with a phobia of chickens, Robert De Niro is the subtly named Louis Cyphre and Lisa Bonet is the daughter of a jello loving OB/GYN. At the end a fat gut explains everything and a demon eyed baby points at Mickey Rourke. Pretty good.
