    ★★★★ Rewatched 15 Jun, 2014

    Enjoyed this a lot more this time around than I have any other times in the past. There's still a lot that bug me about the dialogue and characters, but the look and style of the film, and the simple casting of Zoe Bell as herself solely for the purpose of the amazing final act did not go unappreciated this time around.

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Feb, 2013

    Being from California, I had no idea who Cap'n Video was going into this documentary but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of it. Incredibly well put together with a very entertaining, likable and at times inspirational main subject in Ralph.

    As a frequent listener to the Film Junk Podcast, it's very nice to finally catch up with cast-member Jay Cheel's feature film debut and it's even nicer to see how much of a success it was. Eager to see what else Jay does in the future.

  • The Simpsons Movie

    The Simpsons Movie 2007

    Rewatched 05 Apr, 2013

    I remember watching this when it originally came out and hoping to like it after hearing that it was a "return to form" for The Simpsons who at that point had already been well passed their prime.

    Unfortunately I was disappointed then, and not much has changed 6 years later. Still remains terribly unfunny and even gags that seem to have become popular like Spider-pig, do nothing for me but wonder what exactly about this made people claim that it was reminiscent of the heyday of the Simpsons.
