  • Death Proof 2007

    ★★★★ 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.

  • The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! 1988

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Jan, 2014

    What can I say, I'm a sucker for baseball humor. Admittedly, the last act probably gives this a full-star bump.

  • Beauty Day 2011

    ★★★★ 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 Seven-Per-Cent Solution 1976

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Mar, 2013

    Very fun addition in the world of Sherlock Holmes. Holmes on cocaine, Robert Duvall as Watson, and Alan Arkin as Sigmund Freud? What's not to like?
