    ★★★

    One of Melville's leaner affairs. The Characters have more style than actual depth. Each is shrouded in a mysterious under current that serves the heist genre. Though Im sure Melville is less interested creating a genre than he is a smooth cool caper where people are about action over fluffy self inflated dialogue. The big helicopter train heist is a stone cold groove; minimal flair all mechanics. Barely a word of dialogue for 15 minutes as every one has to…

    When you don’t know what you really want, who you are or where you’re going. At least an idea of it. It’s easy to coast on the emotional highs of loves first fireworks. Because their’s nothing in your way. And everyday wants to last forever. While that is hopefully part of it, finding your soulmate isn’t just the one who keeps you in the highest places, rich with dreamy possibilities, but the one you fit with. Who gives you, the…

    The Ipcress File

    ★★½

    A balanced twist of ingenuity and spy craft for sure. With quick wit surprise escapes and long game double crosses the adventure moves swiftly with a firm grasp of the consequences the world will suffer if our hero’s become political martyrs. But in the end it leans so heavily into pointing fingers and blaming people who run the world for their bad behavior that you lose sight of the characters we had invested ourselves in the first half of the…

    The Man From Toronto

    What is there to say. Poor casting (Harrelson is all wrong for this) meets poor script (Hart couldn’t save this mess if he brought his A game, which he didn’t) collides head on with a Director that simply doesn’t know what funny is. Because all he’s thinking about is how to blow stuff up, shoot things and punch people in the face with as little sense of humor as possible. Not like any of those things are funny in their own right, but Hughes makes sure of it here. This is a train wreck!

    Im not sure if Im more impressed with the feat of actually conquering this impossible 3000 foot Yosemite National Park wall of rock. Or the decision that Tommy Caldwell refused to reach the summit without his best friend Kevin Jorgesen and climbing partner who was stuck at pitch 15. He simply wouldn’t take hold of his life’s dream without raising his friends hand as an equal victor. Only a few men in the world even have the kind of elite…

    Have you ever been in love with someone and they choose a path which seems completely out of character? It comes crashing into your life with all it’s intentions leaving you helpless to do anything about it. You gave your heart to this person and perhaps you deserve understanding. But it’s not a place that you can find your way back to, even by some miracle. The earth has come apart and the divide much too great, leaving you stranded…
