  • The Deep 1977

    ★★½ Watched 24 Feb, 2015

    An oddly paced movie that should have been about murdering drug dealers at some point, but that never starts happening like it should. The underwater scenes are remarkably well shot, John Barry's score is wonderful, Louis Gossett Jr. and Robert Shaw are fantastic, and holy god Jacqueline Bisset is gorgeous. But in the end this just doesn't flow as it should. An entertaining mess.

  • Speed 1994

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 22 Feb, 2015

    The bus jump sequence is the only negative in this entire film, which otherwise holds up quite well. But really, that bus jump stunt is just the worst.

    The movie that's running on the monitors in the waiting rooms for Hell.

  • Batman Returns 1992

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 22 Jul, 2012 2

    Superior in every conceivable way to the first Michael Keaton BATMAN, and anyone who doesn't think so is out of their goddamned mind. Not only is Keaton perfect again, but so are Danny DeVito, Michelle Pfeiffer and Christopher Walken. The scene where Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle discover each other's alter egos still gives me a rush, and I can't tell you how many times I say "You've got kind of a dark side, don't ya?" to other people. Great dynamics and themes going on all over the place in this one.
