    ★★

    This drags. The story feels like it meanders. It's not nearly as funny as it could be. The kitten doesn't get enough screen time. A lot of the jokes go on too long, and when they don't even start off funny, that's a real problem. The entire Anna Faris scene is a good example of this.

    Keanu is a big disappointment.

    ★★★

    A good documentary. Unfortunately, the story doesn't have an ending, yet, as the two girls aren't even scheduled to go to trial until July 2017.

    I feel so bad for the families. You can see the parents just going through hell.

    I can't believe the girls were allowed to give those confessions without a guardian or lawyer present. That doesn't seem okay at all.

    ★★★★★

    This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done that even decades later they remain a disturbing sight; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.

    The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.

    I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.

    ★★★★

    Just found my MGM Region 3 Director's Cut buried in a pile of DVDs. Groovy.

    The movie is 93 minutes long with some alternate takes and the original ending. It's awesome, though I do miss "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."

    Army of Darkness is a ridiculous, campy, over-the-top slapstick comedy in which the goofy Ash manages to make life a lot more difficult for everyone he meets. There really is nothing like a Bruce Campbell one-liner.
