    Jaws 2 1978

    ★★ Watched 29 Sep, 2016

    Part of Hooptober 3.0: Hoop Dreams

    There was a point in my life where I wouldn't want to be caught dead watching any Jaws sequel. I was one of those sequel purists, who was afraid an obviously inferior film would 'ruin' the first one. Now I still haven't seen The Godfather Part III but I'm not a baby no more, and sometimes you just wanna see an animatronic shark no matter how good the movie actually is. I was hopeful…

    Tales from the Darkside: The Movie 1990

    Men in Black 1997

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Feb, 2014 1

    Men in Black stands out as a great franchise starting film that does it all with such simplicity. The world-building here is just fantastically done as you're never questioning the film's lineup of aliens or the methods that go about tracking them. This is all thanks to the 1990's answer to the 1980's Tom Hanks, Will Smith, who gives you plenty of charisma as you learn about the world of Men in Black as he does.
