  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2015

    Better pacing than Guardians, but more vanilla in overall execution. The comedy that was expected to come from this project never really took off in any significant way, which is disappointing considering the cast and Edgar Wright's involvement. Still we get a action movie that keeps it a fairly fast pace when it starts moving which is greatly appreciated, and some really creative action set-pieces utilized with the shrinking aspect. The Avengers' references did feel super shoehorned in though, a…

  • She's Having a Baby

    She's Having a Baby 1988

    ★★½ Watched 17 Jul, 2015

    She's Having a Baby is the often the most forgotten and dismissed of the Hughes filmography.

With Jack McMurphy in Cuckoo's Nest he was pushing the insane asylum to its limit, and in Man on the Moon Andy Kaufman was taking comedy and entertainment above and beyond where people thought it could go.…

  • Men in Black

    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.
