    ★★★

    I first went to see Freejack at the cinema in '92 and thought it was terrible... just really awful cookie cutter sci-fi nonsense. Then a week later, I found myself in the centre of the city with nothing to do, and for no reason I can fathom I decided to see it again, and the second time around I enjoyed it enormously, a fun romp with a sense of humor and some great cameos.

    The truth, of course, is somewhere…

    ★★★★

    Objectively not quite as good as the first one, but still immense fun as long as you love the characters. I certainly did, and I believe this is the movie I've seen the most times in theatres.. I used to keep all my ticket stubs back then, and I count 6.

    To this day, the phrase "I totally believe you dude!" is never far from my lips.

    ★★

    I just can't get behind this movie at all... 50 mins in and I lost interest completely and got my phone out.

    Sure, Adam Sandler isn't awful. But this is not a sympathetic character and to see him undone by his own actions is not in the least bit compelling to me.

    But that's not quite it... The inciting incident is him just GIVING the rock away, man. He just gives it away. How is that not lazy screenwriting?

    I just don't care.

    ★★★

    The tags on Netflix caught my eye (This film is: Exciting) so I thought I'd live tweet it.

    And it did not let me down. It's terrible, but terrible in a way that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    I'M GOING TO GIVE THIS GODDAMN MOVIE THREE STARS AND YOU CAN'T STOP ME!!

    Alright, I might possibly bump it down to 2 1/2, but then I'm going to have to rescore a hell of a lot of movies.

    ...

    I gave Peelers 3 stars? Well this gets 3 easy then.

    Not 3 1/2. Let's not be stupid.
