  • Brewster's Millions

    Brewster's Millions 1985

    ★★★ Watched 28 Apr, 2015

    Enjoyable movie that had me smiling throughout. I found myself trying to come up with solutions on how Brewster could spend that much money and follow the rules. Admittedly - it might be easier to spend $30 million in 30 days today than it was in 1985. The running for mayor was a stroke of genius, and of course that stamp!

    Funny premise, good set-up in the first act and a likable movie all-around, yet I couldn't shake the feeling…

  • Dolphin Tale

    Dolphin Tale 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2015

    A terrific family film. Engaging and straight-forward, the story of Winter the dolphin had my oldest child asking all the right questions.

    While the set-ups in the first act are predictable to us adults, the payoffs aren't hokey or heavy-handed, which was a relief. And the educational content was peppered in well, opening a new world to my kids - and I even learned a few things!

    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well

    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD

  • Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007

    Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Mar, 2013 3

    Being a lifelong James Bond movie fan, I have seen and read more than my fair share of Bond "making of" and "behind the scenes" materials. On top of that, I recently researched and reviewed all the Bond films in 2012 for the Now Playing Podcast's James Bond movie retrospective series, so all the information is still fresh in my mind.
