I enjoy all aspects of cinema and television. From comedy to horror, from documentaries to animation, if it's a good movie, I'll watch it.

    The Ice Road

    ★★★

    This is a predictable, old school Liam Neeson actioner with a straight-forward style. Usually that equates to “boring,” but this flick is a strangely comforting piece of entertainment devoid of the angst, twists and trauma of the MCU and their many end credits scenes.

    Jon Bernthal and Medina Senghore say “babe” and “baby” so much, you can make a drinking game out of it.

    Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

    ★★★½

    The creative and memorable cinematography, direction, screenplay, and performances in Birdman take the audience on a bumpy amusing ride through the dark, claustrophobic passageways of a Broadway theatre as Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) tries to revive his career and self-worth by putting on a show.

    One powerful and electric scene involves Mike (Edward Norton) passionately rehearsing the play with Riggan. Mike effectively improves the play and Riggan's performance by cutting out superfluous sentences. Mike's script/play doctoring is a great example…
