    Girls Trip

    ★★★

    Tiffany Haddish is hilarious, but we already knew this..

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★★

    They literally did the same thing three times in a row— she’s being hunted by something other than the predator and the predator saves her by attacking her attacker. 

    I read the director gave the predator lesser weapons because this movie takes place 300 years earlier… what?! He’s an alien… he doesn’t operate on the same timeline as the human race. 

    Other than that, enjoyable and it’s good to see more offshoots of the predator.

  • Midnight Run

    Midnight Run

    ★★★

    Kept waiting for Grodin to yell “Beethoven!!!”

  • The Woodsman

    The Woodsman

    ★★★

    I was half expecting the fade to black to turn into “Walter was true in his rehabilitation for a time, but ultimately…”

  • Beyond the Lights

    Beyond the Lights

    ★★★

    So her hit song was basically an Evanescence B-side? 

    This I why you don’t listen to a girls’ magazine’s recommendations on underrated movies.

  • Target Number One

    Target Number One

    ★★★

    Living in Thailand adds a bit to this viewing experience. I think it’s great that they used actual Thai language in the movie and that they don’t necessarily paint the Thai people or Thailand as the bad guy, but the white man who comes in and takes advantage of those around him. The movie itself quite interesting, albeit maybe a big unoriginal, and it’s good to see Hartnett still landing leading man roles where the character has a weird ass haircut.

  • The Legend of Cocaine Island

    The Legend of Cocaine Island

    ★★★

    That guy was an idiot. Lol

  • Naked Lunch

    Naked Lunch

    ★★★

    Yes, it looked great and was original, but other than that I don’t think Burroughs deserves this much adoration.

  • The King of Staten Island

    The King of Staten Island

    ★★★

    For every cool scene, there’s a really terrible scene.

  • Pawn Sacrifice

    Pawn Sacrifice

    ★★★

    They did Bobby Fischer pretty dirty, but it looked good while they did it.

  • The Whole Nine Yards

    The Whole Nine Yards

    ★★★

    I don’t think it made me laugh but it was very enjoyable and the story was interesting and ended well. There’s a reason it was shown on tbs for like 15-20 years before they moved on to Grown Ups.

  • Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe

    Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe

    ★★★

    The lengths these idiots go to, based on a misinterpretation, to have sex knows no bounds… not even space, which is why this movie makes perfect sense.
