    ★★★★★

    One of my favorite movies of all time. In my top ten depending on what day you ask me. I can't even use enough adjectives to describe just how much I love this movie and what it means to me. Moore's performance in my opinion is iconic. I've seen many others play drunk, but none as endearing as Moore's Arthur. Gielgud's Oscar winning performance will always put this movie on cinephiles radar, but there is so much more to this…

    170 minutes of one classic scene after the next, truly an outstanding movie and possibly the best War movie ever made.

    ★★

    When I think of this franchise, I really only think about the first two films, whether it’s the gritty, dirty first film or the glossy action packed second one. Murphy’s Axel Foley is one of the screens best characters. The loud mouth from out of town routine never seems to wear thin to me. The first two films are still so much “fish out of water” films that they are endearing even if they come off as formulaic. This film…

    Ok, I have been wanting to re-watch this for a while, but it jumped up high on my list as my kid plays percussion in the Jazz band, so it’s really a film that they had to watch, so this was just as much about them seeing it as it was me re-watching it. Simmons is just perfect, the man was born to play this type of role. He had played a few prickly characters in the past, but never…

    ★★★★½

    Is DC finally catching up to MCU? The Batman is easily the best film about the caped crusader in a long time. Ok no need to be vague it is easily the best Batman movie since The Dark Knight. While watching this, if we are comparing it to DC films, this is the standard in which they should be living up to, if we are comparing it to MCU then it’s a good entry but not exactly at the level…

    Wow, even better than I remembered. So utterly brutal, just like Scene From a Marriage. Liv and Ingrid toe to toe in an epic battle of out of this world acting skills. Watch something like Cries and Whispers and see how Liv is cruel and seductive, then to Autumn Sonata where she spends so much of it meek and passive. Watch Gaslight to see Ingrid vulnerable to this, where she is cold and callus. Just two utterly outstanding performances.
