  • Scrooged 1988

    ★½ Watched 20 Dec, 2014

    I guess you'd better call me Scrooge because I thought this was bad. I was in the mood for a Christmas film and Jingle All the Way wasn't available on Netflix so I opted for this one instead. I love Bill Murray but this film is just bad.

    The last four Bill Murray films that I've watched--Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, Kingpin, and now Scrooged--have all featured Bill Murray as an unlikable guy. I had no idea he was so good at…

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.

    Unfortunately, when I arrived to the theater someone was in the seat that I had bought for myself so I just snagged another. But then, of course, the rightful owner of that seat came. By this point, George Clooney was regaling the audience with his…
