    The Keepers

    ★★★★★

    I'm Christian, went to two catholic schools growing up and as I have written in other reviews, there's just something I liked about the nuns, sister Cathy lost her life doing right. When I was 13 or so there were just things about the way that Catholics did things that just didn't jive with my beliefs or I felt the bible. My aunt was so giddy to be catholic and I'd tell her there were things that made no sense…

    Sophie and the Rising Sun

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I appreciate that this has revealed a gap in my film experiences, and probably something I need to look more into in my life, the Asian experience in America around the time of the Pearl Harbor attacks.

    A white woman falls quickly for a Asian man in the south where such relationships are not accepted and all of the neighbors are petty and racist, except one. This neighbor risks a lot to help protect the couple.

    Not as deep as…

    My Online Bride

    ★★

    British guy: I'm not trying to be sexist, but women love cleaning don't they.

    I don't know why I watch these, this one kind of grossed me out. I'm all for meeting someone online where you live, but flying to foreign locales to engage in what relates closely to human trafficking as one guy rightly put it and basically prostitution is gross.

    Passengers

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I really liked the first part of this, but when they tried to introduce the action it becomes very clumsy. Some of it seems like reused scenes from other recent sci-fi. I recall in Guardians of the Galaxy where Star Lord saves Gamora as she's about to die in space. That was my favorite GOTG scene. Did Pratt say "Ha, I have a wonderful idea for a scene. we'll JUST COPY GOTG"

    I thought rather than having some meteor damage…

  • Five Nights in Maine

    Five Nights in Maine

    ★★

    Two people work together to overcome grief I think! Its been awhile since I've seen Diane Wiest or Rosie Perez for that matter. Wiest has turned into a cute older lady. I didn't know she was in here, as I thought David would be my main reason for watching this, but to me Diane is the reason you should watch this. Actors should watch how she plays a somewhat despicable character that you somehow cant dislike.

    Watching I realized how…

    ★★

    Only watch if you're in the mood for a fatal attraction knock off with black people.

    For people who want a quick review: This is a homeless guys version of Fatal Attraction. Not really, but that's the best way to sum it up, its like the government cheese handout(bless the old government cheese) HUD, bad generic cereal version of Fatal Attraction, with Karreuche Tran...That K Tran

    For people who want a longer review: once I had a test for a…

    ★★

    I think its been awhile since I've seen a British horror. Its not the cast as they are above average, and overall it sort of is a little creepy, but this thing just has half baked written all over it.

    Those damn foreign women.

    Its eerie how his last films have these moments that seem to almost foretell his death, especially when he's doing a voice over.

  • Tarzan

    Tarzan

    ★★★★

    Had never saw this one and I can't stand Rosie O'Donnell at times, so I was worried she'd detract from this, but she fits the character and I really enjoyed this and it had me once again missing the merits of 2D animations. Now excuse me, I'm just going to go hang out in the jungle and wait for the love of my life to come along. The teacup and kettle from beauty and the beast have a cameo as a non descript tea cup and kettle.

    Its beautiful and improbable and beautiful, not going to lie this film wrecked me. I have found a new favorite.
