    Museum of Love

    ★★★

    "It's about a guy who's so obsessed with his ex-girlfriend that he turns his house into a shrine to her," relates Slater. "He starts charging admission to people who want to come over and admire the artifacts of his lost love. It's pretty sick and obsessive. Right down my alley."

    When I decided to watch Christian Slater's full filmography, I found out that he had directed a short film titled Museum of Love. It aired on Showtime in 1996 in…

    Carrera contra la muerte

    ★★★★★

    This is a movie that I got on DVD from a bargin bin at a Mexican grocery store years ago. I know almost no Spanish(except that muerte means “death”, which is why I picked this) but it’s a weirdly compelling and entertaining film regardless.

    The plot seems to be about two brothers, Daniel Falcon(Gilberto Trujillo) and Raul Falcon(Raul Trujillo), who live an idyllic life dirtbiking on their ranch. Their father gets murdered during a dispute at a card game, so…

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    ★★½

    While I've seen all three Indiana Jones movies, I realized recently that this was the only one that I've only seen once. I first saw the series when I marathoned the three VHS tapes over a weekend as a kid, but I didn't like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom one very much. I don't remember much, besides Kate Capshaw's character getting on my nerves and the scene where a dude gets his heart ripped out. But it's been…

    A No-Hit No-Run Summer

    ★★★★

    When I was a kid in the 90’s the Montreal Expos were the “joke team” for me and my friends. If we were playing World Series Baseball on Saturn or Ken Griffey on N64, we'd joke “Haha, choose the Expos!”. They were the home team was because the team had little media exposure in the US, not much success on the field, and the hockey-loving city of Montreal seemed like the wrong place for a baseball team. Over time it…

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    I always liked fighter aircraft, 80’s music, and Tom Cruise, so in theory the original Top Gun is a movie that I should’ve loved. But despite having seen it multiple times it’s never fully clicked for me. And while I did a watch of Tony Scott’s filmography recently, I still didn’t love Top Gun on re-watch.

    But even then, I was still excited for the sequel. I was curious about how it would handle the changes in air warfare since…

    You know, I thought girls were suposed to be jealous of other girls, not cars.

    Recently the Blank Check podcast started a miniseries on the filmography of John Carpenter. As much as I like Carpenter's films, I wasn't planning on watching all of them, but I do want to catch up on a few that I've missed before the podcast gets to them. I liked Keith Gordon's performance in The Legend of Billie Jean quite a bit and never saw…
