    Dead Heat

    ★★★★

    This movie is both hilariously bad, and fucking amazing. The story is so stupid and silly, but the execution, along with the action is top notch. God dammit, it was a blast to watch. Silly as shit. But it’s funny, gory, and has some solid make up work. This is the most fun I’ve had watching a movie in a long time.

    Fuck, that was rough. It’s hard for me to give star ratings to these true crime docs, mostly because
    I don’t want to come off as a total weirdo who gives them 5 stars all the time. But this is top tier true crime. This story is so unbelievable. And I had no prior knowledge of it before watching. Haunting stuff

  • Walking the Edge

    Walking the Edge

    ★★★★

    Robert Forster is the fucking man. He rocks as a cabbie who collects for a bookie, who has no balls, but then finds them and becomes a total bad ass. Even though this was filmed in 1985, it feels like a gritty, mid 70’s exploitation flick. It’s pretty grimy. But I enjoyed the hell out of this one. Also, anything with Joe Spinell in it is a winner in my book. Such a real talent. He is always a great bad guy.

    “Oh He-He-He-Elllloooo, K-K-Ke-Ke-Ke-Ken’s Pets!”

    This is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. I was belly laughing through a lot of it. British humor is amazing to me. It’s an absolutely brilliant script. So god damn funny. Kevin Kline is obviously the scene stealer. I didn’t know he was so funny. I’ve always been a fan of any dramatic role he’s in. But he is hilarious in this. Everyone else is great too, but he was the standout. Curtis…

    ★★★★★

    Wow, that was heavy. I’m sort of at a loss for words at the moment. I’ll probably come back to this review later today after my brain calms down a little bit.


    Update: After having some time to process this one, I finally feel I can write a little more. This is a film that felt a little too real. It’s crazy that some prints say that there isn’t any real documentary footage includes. Because it sure feels like there…

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★★★

    This was a pretty dope sequel/prequel! If you don’t know me by now, I totally dig simple action, with a lean plot. And that’s what this is. One of my only gripes is the fact they didn’t have the Comanche language throughout the entire film. It would’ve been awesome to have the native language throughout, with no subtitles. That would’ve made it more mysterious. But that’s a small gripe. This is the movie that the franchise needed. It’s been in…

  • Prime Cut

    Prime Cut

    ★★★★

    This is as lean as it comes! Prime Cut is pretty short on story, but it really delivers with its action. This is a mean spirited, early 70’s action thriller that I feel is mostly forgotten. I’ve know about it for a couple years, and finally found some time to check it out. Gene Hackman gives a great performance as the baddie, Mary Ann. Sissy Spacek is beautiful in one of her earliest roles. But the movie belongs to Lee Marvin, no surprise there. What a bad motherfucker. He really was the coolest.

  • Lucky

    Lucky

    ★★★★★

    I had some time this morning to squeeze in a shorter movie. So going through my watchlist on Tubi, I noticed Lucky is an hour and 28 minutes long. Perfect length for me this morning. Boy, I was not expecting it to have such a profound effect on me. I was absolutely floored by John Carrol Lynch’s directorial debut. He has always been an excellent actor. But this time he has crafted an almost surreal, Jarmusch-like film that’s very special.…

  • Wild Bill

    Wild Bill

    ★★★★

    I love a good acid western! I have always sort of steered clear of this one due to its mostly negative reviews. But being a Walter Hill flick, I wanted to check it out. And I actually liked it quite a bit! Bridges is the second best portrayal of the legendary gunslinger behind Keith Carradine in Deadwood. I think it’s sort of funny and ironic that Carradine plays Bill Cody in this one. Back to Bridges, he portrays Hickok as…

    The Vast of Night

    ★★★★★

    Thank you to my brother Chase for recommending this independent sci fi gem! The Vast of Night exceeded my expectations! It’s absolutely brilliant. It’s wonderful storytelling, with innovative camera work and editing. Very atmospheric. And the two lead performances are absolute dynamite. I’m sort of at a loss for words. I’m officially blown away and can’t wait to see what Andrew Patterson makes next!

  • The Gray Man

    The Gray Man

    ★★½

    “The white pants and the trash stache, sort of leans to Lloyd.”

    The Gray Man is pretty loud and dumb. But it was sort of fun and had some neat action scenes. And I hope to see much more villainous roles from Chris Evans, who chews up every scene he is in. You can tell he was having a lot of fun filming this. The only reason I wanted to check this out was because the Russo Brothers directed the greatest MCU movie, The Winter Soldier. And I don’t like the MCU much. But that movie kicks ass.
