  • Munich

    Munich

    ★★★★

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast Episode 13)

    Steven Spielberg's thrilling and emotional depiction of the tragic on-going cycle of violence associated with the Israeli and Palestinian conflict.

    "We are supposed to be righteous. That's a beautiful thing. And we're losing it. If I lose that, that's everything. That's my soul."

    Watching Munich this time was a pretty fresh and engaging experience, since this is the rare movie I remembered very little about since seeing it in the theater. The…

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★★

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast Episode 13)

    The ultimate killing machine learns the value of human life through the friendship he develops with the boy he has been programmed to protect.

    "Watching John with the machine, it was suddenly so clear. The Terminator would never stop. It would never leave him, and it would never hurt him, never shout at him, or get drunk and hit him, or say it was too busy to spend time with him. It…

  • High Life

    High Life

    ★★½

    High Life from Director Claire Denis, is an odd little sci-fi arthouse film that explores the idea of how our humanity could actually regress in our pursuit to understand the mysteries of the Universe.

    "The Sensation of moving backwards even though we are moving forwards, getting further from what's getting nearer, sometimes I just can't stand it."

    Bottom Line: This movie felt like it was striving to be like the two titans of the arthouse sci-fi genre (Tarkovsky's 'Solaris' & Kubrick's…

    ★★★★

    Criterion Collection Spine #970

    A washed up ole southern boy becomes an overnight sensation through the power of his dazzling on-air charisma.

    "I'm not just an entertainer. I'm an influence, a wielder of opinion, a force... a force!"

    Wow, Andy Griffith is a force of nature in his debut performance as Larry “Lonesome” Rhodes, in Director Elia Kazan's 'A Face in the Crowd'. In the story a radio show producer named Marcia Jeffries is looking for a unique talent, and…

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    An all new Spiderman comes into his own as Marvel and Sony unleash the Spider-Verse!

    "Wow, that is one hardcore origin story kid."

    The dazzling pages of a comic book come to life in this highly unique and imaginative animated film. For so long I have wanted to see a Spiderman movie that was not handcuffed to the constraints of a simple hero story and one or two villains. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse delivers that and much more as…

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    (2019 Summer Blockbuster Movie Series)

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast Episode 5 Part II)

    It all started with "I... Am... Iron-Man!" and now it has come down to the epic final showdown "This is the fight of our lives." And I am thrilled to say that Marvel has delivered one of the greatest cinematic journeys of all time.

    "Part of the journey is the end."

    Ever since first I saw the result of the snap in ‘Infinity War’, I…
