  • Zoolander 2

    Zoolander 2 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Sep, 2016 1

    So glad I rewatched the first Zoolander before watching this sequel, as I got all the references to the first movie I likely wouldn't have all these years later.

    Much prefer this to the original. I laughed more in the first half hour than I did the whole first movie. Abundant celebrity cameos add to the fun but do not a punchline make. 
    Still, silly fun throughout.

  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers 1954

    ★★★★ Rewatched 23 Sep, 2016

    Rewatched as part of my Best of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection initiative.

    Saw this almost thirty years ago as a kid for family movie night and that barn raising scene left a lasting impression. If you have seen this movie, you know how amazing it is. If you haven't, it is entirely worth your time to see. Seriously - you want to see the big barn raising sequence, and then you likely will want to watch it again sometime…

    My kids and I watched and they liked this by far

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
    This movie's still great and is one of those few

    It's a film that's aged well
    after all's said and TOLD
    A film that still works for the young
    and the OLD
    I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
    They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy

    Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-dee
    If you are wise, you'll listen to me

    You will rewatch this as soon as you can
    And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa
    Big Recommend!

  • 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. So the subtitle of "The Untold Story of 007" doesn't apply to me; there is absolutely no new information…
