    The Killer Downstairs

    ★½

    Not only is this the same movie as Killer in the Guest House, but it's the same actor.

    Not recommended.

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

    The first half that I was watching this movie I just kept screaming inside my head over and over that this was just a ripoff of Inside Man -- which everyone should watch.

    But, I do give the movie credit, because at the end it went in a different direction and won me over.

    I had a mediocre/average review all queued up to publish for this movie, but Damn Soderbergh turned things on me.

    Here's the beginning of my mediocre to average review of this movie I had all queued up for the first entire hour of the movie:

    One of the millions of things that happened during the 2020 pandemic is that directors all got bored as fuck in their mansions but not at all creative and decided that they were all going…

    ★★★★½

    This is exactly the type of movie that I like! And I liked it right away, in its first 5 minutes!

    It's short, straight to the point, simple, easy to understand! That's all I want, people!

    This is the second Humphrey Bogart film in a row that I have really liked! I guess that I "might have to stan". And he plays a man named Dick, yet again? LOL.

    God, Humphrey plays an unrepentant asshole in this one! I admire…

  • Fatal Instinct

    Fatal Instinct

    ★★★

    This is extremely silly, kind of exactly what you'd expect. It was a little hard for me to finish, and I wanted to bail a few times, but I kept going because some positive things kept happening.

    - I'm a big fan of Christopher McDonald (aka Shooter McGavin)
    - I like Sherilyn Fenn (She's gorgeous)

    I got REALLY EXCITED at one point because I JUST watched the classic noir Double Indemnity for the first time, and honestly - I didn't…

  • Julia

    Julia

    ★★★½

    Suddenly it's Julia Child fever everywhere lately. This movie is a 2021 release, but if you're interested in the topic, you can also watch the Meryl Streep biopic Julie & Julia from 2009, or the series that just finished airing on HBO, "Julia", or even the reality competition "The Julia Child Challenge" that was just released on the Food Network. I have seen all of those projects and loved them. Instead, I think I just rather "liked" this documentary.

    This movie…

    ★★★★

    Knives Out 2: All the Old Knives

    All of Chris Pine's Wigs


    This is a spy thriller starring Thandiwe Newton and Chris Pine. So, by the time I read the cast list I was already sold. And this movie is pretty sexy. Older woman, younger man? Yes please.

    My notes say that it was a short movie (I love a short movie) and why did I write down "Pete Davidson"? Oh because there was an SNL rap/sketch that aired around…

  • Rush Hour 2

    Rush Hour 2

    ★★★½

    What a crazy, stupid, ridiculous, hilarious, nonsensical insane mess of a movie. It's really stupidly funny but it's just so.......... crazy.

    Never once have I ever understood what the plot of this movie is even. It's so wild. Hong Kong, Los Angeles, AND Las Vegas! All in one movie.

    I didn't love this movie the last time I saw it, but this time I see how fun it is. Definitely a good time. It's so ridiculous and it made me…

    Sister Act is one of my all time favourite movies and I will love Whoopi Goldberg forever simply because of that. Whoopi practically owned the 90s, and it was completely normal as a child to watch everything she made back then. I know that I liked this movie back when it was released, and I've been meaning to rewatch it (and well, everything she's ever done) ever since. Also, I always say that 1994 is my favourite year of pop…

    ★★★★★

    I usually take notes when I watch things, but this time I didn't. I just wrote down 5 stars.

    This eight episode series is dramatization of the real life case of Michael Peterson and Kathleen Peterson that occurred from 2001-2003. But it is also about the events after that leading up to today.

    If you can keep this straight, this miniseries is about the case but also about the filming of a French docuseries about the case. You can find…

    Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

    ★★★½

    This is the longest movie that I've ever seen. LOL. Well one of them anyway. It probably doesn't deserve a 3.5 but that's what I'm rating it.

    Shia LaBeouf is a great actor. Unfortunately, Carey Mulligan isn't given much to do in this movie except cry cutely the whole time. (She's not an ugly crier. She's a Cute Crier.)

    I don't even totally undersatnd the whole story. I don't really get the point of watching this, what I get out…

    I have been watching a bunch of Cary Grant movies since the pandemic started, and so far, I have rarely been disappointed.

    Though I had a very hard time paying attention to any parts that didn't involve the four main characters in the movie, especially Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant's characters, this was just lovely.

    This movie really reminded me of My Best Friend's Wedding in a lot of ways. Just read the plot description - it's the exact same!…
