    RIP Richard Donner. A super embarrassing first time watch for me. I was expecting a fun buddy cop action flick- but it's also super dark and bleak at times.

    And it has that crazy 80's (drug fueled?) energy to it- that third act especially. Plus the engaging chemistry of the two leads make it a must watch.

    Very deserving of its status as one of the best action films of the decade.

    Not sure why it took me this long…

    Wow, this was kind of a blind buy based on a recommendation from a friend at work- and it was pretty good! It was almost like an old Marx Brothers or "Road" movie with tons of vaudeville style banter and one liners. With a "Romancing the Stone" and "Indiana Jones" vibe (ahem). Plus the quirky charisma of the two leads and I don't know- it worked for me. Your mileage may vary. But overall it's an underrated 80's comedy- worth checking out if you think you've seen everything. I'll definitely pop this in again when I need a feel good, fun flick.

    John Carpenter's masterpiece- the perfect film to watch during Blizzard 2016.

    Only Kurt Russell can make a ridiculous "Yosemite Sam" hat look cool.

    Between "Nightcrawler" and this film, Jake Gyllenhaal had one hell of a year in 2014.

    I wasn't sure if I liked this one at first- but it definitely resonated with me in a strong way. It stays with you, and leaves you thinking.

    It's a surreal look at a man struggling with the encroaching responsibilities of fatherhood- at least that's my take. Some definite echoes of Kafka and Lynch here.

    I was really taken with how the film itself made…
