  • Pacific Heights

    Pacific Heights 1990

    ★★★ Rewatched 30 Aug, 2015

    I always wish this one was just a little bit better.

  • You Can't Hurry Love

    You Can't Hurry Love 1988

    ★★ Watched 30 Aug, 2015

    What starts as an odd-ball mix-n-match sketch-like comedy morphs into a standard get-to-the-girl-before-it's-too-late 80s flick.

    When the tone is whack-a-doo silly, it's completely uneven but manages to flail its way into some pretty big laughs - particularly a notable cameo from Charles Grodin. But, when it becomes sincere in its transition into the third act, it becomes downright boring.

    David Packer is an odd choice for leading-man as he just never feels comfortable in the role - he seems more…

  • Fletch

    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!?!

    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.
