  • Alone in the Dark

    Alone in the Dark 1982

    ★★½ Watched 27 Oct, 2013

    While it has a great (and weird) cast, the entertaining aspects of the film are often uneven. Should be enjoyed by those looking for something a little weird from the early 80's.

  • The Heat

    The Heat 2013

    ★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2013

    I definitely laughed, but I can't remember a single line. Still, I'd probably watch the two of them team up again.

  • The Kid

    The Kid 2000

    ★★★ Watched 30 Sep, 2012

    Like the most heartwarming extended Twilight Zone episode ever. Actually, it's a light and funny film with decent comedy from Bruce and better from Breslin.

  • The Goonies

    The Goonies 1985

    ★★★★ Rewatched 18 Aug, 2012

    Yes, yes, it helps to have grown up watching this film to really feel the undying love for it now, and it's hard to know what someone coming to it for the first time as an adult would make of it, but c''s still funny, still exciting, still occasionally hokey, and still makes one regret never finding that trap-laden pirate cave you were sure was somewhere in your own neighborhood. Just me?
