    Mr. Magoo 1997

    ★★ Watched 23 Nov, 2016

    Not a good movie. But there is some great stunt work and good old-fashioned slapstick gags that the kids certainly enjoyed and we admired the artistry of.

  • Ghostbusters

    Ghostbusters 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Oct, 2016

    This movie was the same concept and idea of the classic original, but is not a carbon copy remake full of the same characters and jokes we have seen before. The same plot beats, yes, but not the same humor or type of humor. I laughed at some of the jokes and enjoyed the effects and McKinnon and Jones' characters. 

    This Ghostbusters was entertaining enough and different enough from the original while still giving me a satisfying Ghostbustets experience. Perhaps it's all those episodes of The Real Ghostbusters, who knows?

    The whole family watched and enjoyed together, too, I feel the need to add.

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