  • The Company You Keep 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    Engaging and remarkably cast. I knew nothing going in about this movie and I think that is a big reason I enjoyed watching it so much.

    This feels like a Robert Redford movie of old. The subject matter, political tones (under and over) and style of moviemaking fit right in with his filmography. And, of course, he directs himself well in this. Shia is great here; I hope he gets to do more work like this again.

    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 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…
