    The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

    ★★★★½

    What a hilarious film. This film is how comedy should be done. Best way to describe it is this film is a live action cartoon. 


    I watched this film again after not seeing it for a while and it still was as great as I remembered. I have seen the sequels, but don’t remember them being as good as this. It also helped that I watched another film made by the ZAZ group, Airplane!. With that, I managed to appreciate he…

  • The Adventures of Robin Hood

    The Adventures of Robin Hood

    ★★★★½

    Is it embarrassing to Hollywood that even after 81 years, this still remains the best Robin Hood film. What makes this film stand out from the rest is the acting, the pacing, the writing, the directing and, most importantly, the charm in this film.

    While Errol Flynn might not have been a great guy in real life, he certainly captured the spirit of the character of Robin Hood. Competitive, brave, cocky, caring, and so much more. Olivia de Havilland plays…
