  • The Dark Half 1993

    ★★½ Added

    The Dark Half of a good movie.

    Some of the moments in here though, are fantastic. Also, the ending is bonkers, hilarious and awesome. Romero's style lends itself well to some of the scenes here, but it meanders in the middle stretch and could have easily been an hour and a half.

    Other moments fall flat, like the doctors nonchalant reaction to finding an eyeball in someone's brain.

  • Tourist Trap 1979

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Jul, 2014

    Had very high hopes going in that were dashed slightly but the campy mood and awkward comical musical choices at moments, but those dang mannequins - eeeesh. Creepsville, USA.

  • 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.
