  • Tuck Me In 2014

    ★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2014

    A well executed micro-short that plays eerie when it could have been creepy. Nice to see the less-is-more approach to a short, though.

  • Dragon Hunt 1990

    ★★½ Watched 18 Oct, 2014

    Somewhere between Miami Connection (sans-concerts), Deadly Prey and Sledgehammer lies... Dragon Hunt!.

    The Brothers McNamara spend almost the entirety of the film dialogue-less. The plot concerns the mohawked villain Jake (returning from their previous film) capturing them and releasing them on an island, to hunt them down The Most Dangerous Game style.

    The scene with the brothers on their party-boat goofing off and clay-shooting for fun is one for the books. The villain's narration is probably some of the funniest…

  • Fletch 1985

    ★★★★★ Added

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.

  • A Talking Cat!?! 2013

    ½ Watched 14 Mar, 2013 13

    A drunk cat keeps messing around with two families in an attempt to ruin their lives. Or something along those lines. Did I mention that Eric Roberts voices the cat? Did I mention he recorded his voice-over in a garbage can? Did I mention David DeCoteau directed it? AVClub describes this movie as a talking animal movie meets The Room - pretty apt. I won't lie, I laughed pretty hard at this pile of crap a couple times.
