    Crisis

    ★★★½

    Why do I get the feeling someone is trying to bury this movie like it’s the lab results big pharma doesn’t want you to see? It’s got to be Armie Hammer, right? Isn’t he in some random controversy that has taken him off the ‘it’ list? Well, it’s too bad because this is actually a decent film. Gary Oldman is solid as always and the three main storylines of the film all hold your attention (even though the one featuring Oldman isn’t quite as embedded in the main storyline). Definitely worth checking out if you happen to stumble upon it down the road.

    The only movie franchise where I feel you are doing yourself a disservice if you see the original.

    Should be celebrated as the most undiluted 80’s movie ever made!

    I forced both my kids to watch it. My daughter mentioned she felt like the movie was actively killing her brain cells. However, she also had a dream where she had a crush on Turbo, so I call that a parenting win!

    I’d recommend watching the credits and reading all the nicknames. My personal favorite was ‘Boogaloo Midget.’ 

    I can think of no other movie that fills my soul with so much joy.

    For a long time, Sonic the Hedgehog was my son’s favorite movie.

    He had a Sonic the Hedgehog birthday cake.

    He went as Sonic for Halloween.

    Needless to say, we NEEDED to see part 2 ASAP.

    And even though it cost damn near $100, I bought the family D-Box tickets (where the seats move and shake to the action in the movie) to further enhance the experience.

    My wife watched more of my son’s reactions through the movie than the…

    How can a movie about being horny be so bland?

    I would have preferred a version of this that was re-written to be an 80’s teen sex comedy.

    As is, this resembles a risqué ‘ABC Movie of the Week’ about loving yourself (physically and emotionally).

    Yawn.
