    Pixels 2015

    ★★ Watched 06 Oct, 2015

    I had hope the fun short film this movie is based on could be expanded into an entertaining feature. But sadly that princess is in another castle.

    I still love this premise. It's a good one. And this could have been Sandler's Ghostbusters, but instead we have another typical Adam Sandler movie. For all the good choices they made, the bad ones usurped them. Shame such a fun, high concept idea ended up a bland, average, predictable movie.

    Game over. Not recommend

    ★★★ Watched 05 Oct, 2015

    This documentary on the rise and fall of the notorious 1970s/1980s movie house Cannon films is well produced for a talking head documentary, with plenty of footage of the actual movies and edited together quite well.

    At first you are surprised with how frank the interview subjects were, and then as the documentary went on and more and more of the Cannon library was discussed, it becomes apparent everyone has something to say about Golan and Globus. In fact, the…

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