    ★★★½ Rewatched 01 Dec, 2014

    Take any sport, a blonde nemesis, teenage love, and serve it up with at least 2 montages. Bonus points if the montage music has words like thunder, lightning, glory, etc.

    Point Break with cars.

  • Teen Wolf 1985

    ★★★ Rewatched 18 Nov, 2014

    It’s like somebody forgot to pick Michael J. Fox up from work after filming Back to the Future and he just kept acting. Heck, Scott Howard’s house is the same house Lorraine Baines occupied in 1950s BTTF.

    But to me, none of this is a bad thing. Fox’s initial reaction to the transformation in the bathroom mirror is priceless, and Stiles is a pretty great sidekick.

  • The Karate Kid, Part II 1986

    ★★★ Rewatched 17 Nov, 2014 1

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Ghostbusters 1984

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 19 Oct, 2014

    One day when I was a kid, my dad came home with a big RCA box and a small plastic VHS case from a store called ‘Video Magic.’

    Ghostbusters was the first movie I watched in my house on a VCR and it blew my f#@king mind. Any cinematic experience I’ve had since pales in comparison.

  • Batman 1989

    ★★★★ Rewatched 16 Nov, 2014

    1989 Batman was one of about five MVPs in our VHS collection growing up. Much of what I loved about it as a youngster held up recently on the big screen. The grade of special effects was enjoyably lo-fi, Keaton/Burton’s batman is still my favorite, and Jack playing Jack Napier is timeless. “Love that Joker!”

  • Zodiac 2007

    ★★★★½ Watched 14 Oct, 2014

    I think this is David Fincher’s best work—a sensational story told in a focused, subtle way.

  • Se7en 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 04 Oct, 2014

    I re-watched Se7en after seeing this video on Fincher’s techniques.

  • Alien: Resurrection 1997

    I watched Alien Resurrection (AKA Slow Dancing With Aliens) so you didn’t have to:
