    Cats

    Movies 2019 - 302. Cats (2019; written by Lee Hall and Tom Hooper; directed by Tom Hooper)

    🌮🌮 (2 tacos)

    Cats living on the streets of London hold an annual celebration as one moves on to its next life. Cats is the kind of movie where hearing someone say that it is a bad movie isn’t enough. You have to experience the badness for yourself. It is almost admirable just how deliciously terrible Cats is. From its outlandish premise, to…

    A New York jeweler’s life spirals out of control thanks to his gambling addiction. There has to be a word for this, but my brain isn’t coming up with it at the moment. I’ll describe: what is it called when you desperately want someone to come out on top when you know that they will…

    ★★★

    Movies 2021 - 85. The Paper Tigers (2020; written and directed by Quoc Bao Tran)

    🌮🌮🌮 (3 tacos)

    Three Kung-Fu prodigies reunite after thirty years a bit worse for wear to avenge the murder of their master. This is a tough one to review for me because I feel like it kind of has to be on a different scale. The taco rating is a bit low because while it doesn’t completely hit for me, there is so much I…

  • The Adventures of Robin Hood

    The Adventures of Robin Hood

    ★★★★

    In the face of treachery and treason, Robin Hood and his friends sure did laugh a lot.

    Oh… the Merry Men. 

    They were really sticking to that brand.

    A group of scientists attempt to capture a mysterious sea creature from the Amazon. I have a special place in my heart for the Universal monsters. There is something really fun about the films that introduce these characters. They tell great stories and actually find ways…

    A single mother and her two daughters are forced to confront evil home invaders. I have gone on the record many times to express that I don’t like horror films that rely solely on jump scares. It’s a cheap storytelling convention that feels like a substitute for a deeper plot. However, when a film does…
