  • The Crazies

    The Crazies

    ★★★

    A different twist on the zombie genre with a bit of "the government is behind it!". It's fine.
    And Timothy Olyphant should be in more movies.

  • Earthquake Bird

    Earthquake Bird

    ★★

    A slow paced character driven drama that builds tension and mystery but doesn't go anywhere particularly exciting or interesting. Or good.
    Is like reading a boring, sappy novel but without that cinematic punch that makes it alive.

  • The Legend of Zorro

    The Legend of Zorro

    ★★★

    It suffers from the absence of Anthony Hopkins but it makes up for it a little bit with that great kid portraying the son. It lacks some of the charm from the first one, yet it is still a solid Zorro adventure.

  • The Mask of Zorro

    The Mask of Zorro

    ★★★★

    Rewatching The Mask of Zorro (don't know how I got this idea) after so many years was truly nice. It brought back a lot of memories and also reminded how good and fun were this type of simpler, classic adventure movies. It doesn't try to reinvent the wheel and in that process tells a complete and satisfying story filled with childhood emotions and spectacle with a perfect cast.
