  • Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair

    Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair

    ★★★★★

    March 28, 2011 was one of my Top 5 Most Memorable Moments in Moviegoing.

    My brother and I, long-time Tarantino fans, went to QT's New Beverly Cinema to watch his own personal print of Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. And it was spectacular.

    We both had already seen the two separate parts multiple times. The major changes mentioned in other reviews, along with one subtle difference just before the intermission, really perfected what was already a near perfect film.…

  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★★

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi gets a lot of flack. Although some "fans" didn't care for a story that didn't fit with their pre-conceived ideas, I think that those who liked it will continue to gain appreciation for it.

    A common complaint among the disappointed was with Luke's heroics at the finale. While one can disagree with Luke being a pacifist, and wish for a huge climactic battle at the end, I would have to assume that a knock-down, drag…

    The Vast of Night

    ★★★

    Got a few glowing recommendations on this from some film friends, so I decided to give it a shot. While I appreciated what was being attempted here, I feel like at this point in our film history, you need to come up with a little more that what was provided in this film.

    I liked the slow development of the story, I loved the camerawork which had long and extensive takes contrasting with quick fast edit takes, depending on the…

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I apologize in advance, and I'm gonna waste a shitload of time writing this, but I'm gonna Lt.-Daniel-Kaffee this shit.

    Ready? Here I go:

    The entire goal that our rebels have to achieve in order to win is to stop and/or destroy the Emperor's brand new, power-upped fleet of planet killing Star Destroyers.

    However, these Star Destroyers cannot leave the planet yet, because even though they are armed with hundreds of thousands of crew, they need to be managed by…

  • The Lovebirds

    The Lovebirds

    ★★★½

    The Lovebirds is your common romantic comedy/murder mystery, powered through by the likability and comedic timing of Rae and Nanjiani.

    This would have been a perfect AMC A-List watch. I miss the movie theater.

  • The Deadly Spawn

    The Deadly Spawn

    ★★★★½

    As a high school teenager, I sought out every gory horror film possible, and as anyone who has seen this film knows... this was a goddammmed TREASURE TROVE OF GORE.

    When we got it on VHS back then, the box stated the film was called "Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn."

    However, when our local Mom & Pop, who were Korean, got it at their store, they labeled the VHS box as: "Return fo the Aliens: The Peadly Spawn."

    So…
