  • Jaws



    I wish they could have made several sequels with this crew, because it’s golden. The pairing of the three main characters is absolutely phenomenal. I suppose that’s why this is considered one of the best of all time.

    I’m curious about Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw, I want to learn more about their earlier work. I’ve heard/read some of the stories about making JAWS and I have to admit I’m a sucker for this kind of on-set drama and BTS trivia. And I have a soft spot for drunks. 

    Fun!..... 3 tons of it.

    Blue Velvet


    Absurdity and mystery at its finest, Blue Velvet is a masterpiece. This is standard viewing for fans of David Lynch, neo-noir, and psychological thrillers.

    Is this horror? That’s a debate I’d love to be a part of, although I don’t know which side I’d take. Based on my feelings at this moment my gut says no. Disturbing violent thriller? Yes. Terrifying psychotic villains with mental problems? Yes. Even a fair amount of blood and death, yes. But horror, I’d say no.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters


    If you hate this movie, you hate fun. 

    It is what it is, it delivers on the monsters. Left me so curious about the other creatures we’ve yet to see. Juiced up ‘Zilla made me so hype. The outlandish parts of the story totally fit into the universe and open up lots of doors to expand and add. 

    Just the right amount of human stories, likable but simple characters. Unplug your brain and enjoy the majesty.

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame


    Saw this last night, but it was simply too much movie to unpack right away. How can you review this movie as one film without reviewing the entire Marvel universe?

    Just trying to piece this all together. It didn’t disappoint. It was as epic and nonstop as promised. There were a few moments that genuinely surprised me, but I wish there were more. A lot of small stories creating one massive one, but not all of the stories are equal.…
