    ★★★½

    What can I say in defense of "Hudson Hawk"? Can I justify the affection I've always had for this dubious film? Probably not, but every time I watch this thing it puts a big, goofy smile on my face and I cannot pretend otherwise.

    "Hudson Hawk" is a notorious box office bomb. It was released into theaters like a wet fart in the summer of 1991 and just kind of evaporated before slinking out and onto the shelves of video…

    I love General Tso's chicken. It's one of my favorite dishes. But the first place I had it was in my hometown Chinese restaurant, so I will forever define what it's supposed to taste like by how it tasted there. Their recipe will always be the one that I measure all other General Tso's chicken recipes against. Some versions I've had are spicier. Some are tangier. Most of them are probably closer to what General Tso's chicken should taste like.…

    Red Notice

    ★★★

    "Red Notice" is your standard, light-hearted, jewel thief/con artist heist/action film. It relies on star power to do most of its heavy lifting, and its stars rely on their inherent, established charisma to get the job done. The Rock, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot basically do what they've done in every other movie in which they have appeared. They've done it better in previous movies, but their performances are servicable and non-taxing. No one flexes previously unused acting muscles here.…

    My wife loves hunting for morel mushrooms. She doesn't find too many in our area, sadly, but once in a while she finds a decent score and that keeps her searching for them. If nothing else, it's a good excuse to go walking in the woods.

    I knew she would enjoy this movie, seeing as how it's about fellow foragers. But the men at the heart of this film (the titular truffle hunters) take it a lot more seriously than…

    Marisa Tomei winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress was long considered one of the biggest screw-ups in Oscar history. She was considered undeserving, her performance too light and insubstantial for an award.

    If you hold this opinion, I respect your viewpoint. But you can also go fuck yourself.

    If you can watch the scene at the end where Marisa explains positraction on the witness stand without smiling, and without marveling at how fully and beautifully Marisa Tomei hijacks the…

    There's a tendency of this site to immediately overrate new movies. And I get it. Seeing a film in the theater has a bewitching effect. When you're used to seeing movies on your TV or, God forbid, your tablet, the charge of seeing something projected as large as possible in a big, dark room alone makes a movie a little better. If that movie's even remotely great, then all the better. Letterboxd isn't the only social media site to stoke…
