    Logan's Run

    ★★½

    Yeah - it's dated - but the outfits of the ?Future? are pretty good ...

    Box (the robot) sure was pushing sea greens pretty hard ...

  • Shazam!

    Shazam!

    ★★★½

    Pretty good - some laughs, some sentimental stuff, some brushing up against the larger DC universe. It’s still no Marvel, but getting better. Question: which came first: the name Shazam or shazam used as an expression (like Gomer Pyle would say ...)?

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★★

    I really loved this film. While the visuals are typical awesome Wes Anderson, the thing that set this apart is the more-than-usual style changes and the great incorporation of models. Also probably the funniest Anderson film - the use of swearing was outstanding.

    ★★★★

    "And I thought they smelled bad on the outside"

    Andy Serkis gives an Oscar-worthy performance as the bear.

    Leo gets hurt more than OJ in the Naked Gun.
