    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★½

    (In 3D - 2017 Re-Release)

  • White House Down

    White House Down

    ★★

    In which... is it supposed to be serious... funny... what is it... there is acts of terrorism and violence... but then it's undercut by a shift in tone so massive I don't know what to think... it's beyond wry one liners... I don't know what I just watched...

  • Side by Side

    Side by Side

    ★★★★

    In which... if you have any opinion on film vs digital then you should watch this documentary... so well put together....

  • Carrie

    Carrie

    ★★★½

    In which... a horror classic that holds up so well I don't exactly understand the need to have remade it recently...

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    What We Do in the Shadows

  • Loose Cannons

    Loose Cannons

    ★½

    In which... what did I just watch.... I feel this is something both actors probably would want wiped off their CV's....

  • The Addams Family

    The Addams Family

    ★★★

    In which... I just rewatched probably one of the better of the 90's tv-to-film revivals... pitch perfect cast let down by a story that would have made an average episode of the tv series it came from... still like it plenty though...

  • Psycho

    Psycho

    ★★★

    In which... it's a classic on so many levels and for so many reasons... but I've never ever enjoyed the way it ends... I feel like I'm being lectured in a class on what happened...

  • Little Shop of Horrors

    Little Shop of Horrors

    ★★★★

    In which... I'll never get sick of the little shop...

  • Oz the Great and Powerful

    Oz the Great and Powerful

    ★★

    In which... the concept is a great take but it's flawed from start to end with so many problems... such a shame...

  • Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

    Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

    ★★½

    In which... I think this may become a guilty pleasure film... it's so bad it's great... and everyone plays their roles so straight it works...
