    There's all sorts of good stuff here but it's just thrown at the wall and you're left to go scoop some of it up and make what you will of it. I love Appalachia (at least my travelogues indicate that I do) and I was hoping for maybe something more straightforward. Or just 90 minutes of listening to Silas House talk about anything because damn he's got a voice.

    And dude, someone fly the kid from Deliverance to LA.

    The Mystery of D.B. Cooper


    Look this is a nice documentary and all but it is a well-known fact that my Uncle Dan was really DB Cooper and all my pictures of him with parachutes and the $200,000 may be mysteriously missing now, but he told me that he'd done it on his deathbed and I believe him so you should too.

    The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter

    So, The Neverending Story, the first one, that was a fantastic piece of childhood nostalgia. When I read the book years later, I was sad that only the first half of the book ended up in the movie, especially since there's some awesome stuff in the second half. Well, some of that second half ended up in this movie and I was even sadder.

    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This was the only Star Trek movie from the original series that I saw as a kid. It left an impression on me and I remember it fondly and watching it today reaffirmed that fondness. Everything seemed to be clicking in this movie between the cast, the direction, the story and its execution. The first 15 minutes of the Enterprise crew in present day San Francisco is some of the best fish-out-of-water stuff you'll find in a movie anywhere.
