    Seeing the Carl Sagan video make that viral Kessel run recently, I felt I needed to add this story that relates. It was an aspect of the film that a good friend was able to open my eyes to at an early stage in my film-loving life.

    I've always loved SW, since I first saw it opening weekend in May 1977. It appealed to me, it was geared towards me, and it represented me on screen. Fourteen years later, a…

    Let me tell you about my most adventurous evening in film-watching and the literal journey I took to see this spectacular film on opening night.

    My brother and I decided to go see Basic Instinct on March 20, 1992. I was 24, my brother 22. We drove to our favorite big screen multiplex in Alhambra, CA, which was about 15 miles away.

    We arrived later than we wanted to, and we knew we were in trouble. So many people in…

    ★★★½

    What happens when you take fantastic actors and put them in a poorly constructed thriller? The Good Liar.

    Draft Day

    ★★★½

    The NFL’s big juicy wet kiss to itself, Draft Day presents a convoluted day-in-the-life of an NFL team GM desperately trying to un-fuck himself from a series of fantastical life-events all occurring within a 12-hour time frame. 

    Makes me wonder how everyone ends up looking good except for the unreliable QB character and the Seattle Seahawks. They each deserved what they got in the end, but it’s hilarious that one of those two was an actual NFL team. Go Rams!

    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.…
