    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★

    A hyper-violent breath of fresh air from Margot Robbie and director Cathy Yan, Birds of Prey continues WB & DCs streak of inventive and singular films.

    Going in I expected a good time but I never thought I would have this much fun! The cast here is phenomenal with each Bird getting the time to shine. Yes it's mainly a Harley Quinn story but the other characters aren't phoning it in at all. Smart exposition, highly entertaining action, and a high-strung…

  • The Verdict

    The Verdict

    ★★★★★

    "The court doesn't exist to give them Justice, the court exists to give them a chance at Justice."

    Haven't seen much of Sidney Lumet's work but this is my favorite so far. Less a true courtroom drama and more a drama of "what leads up to the courtroom," The Verdict is towering in every aspect. From characters who feel real and lived in locations, it's the best Best Picture nominee I've seen in ages.

    Paul Newman gives an amazing performance…

    ★★★★

    Ahhhhhh holy shit this was AWESOME! Some of the best gore effects I've seen in a Hollywood movie and such a perfect villain. Wish I'd seen this earlier.

    Seriously, this is next-level stuff. A pretty capable mystery with some insane over the top violence and gore, no wonder this spawned three sequels. Andrew Divoff is a supreme creep and his voice is pure demon.

    Very excited to check out the rest of the Vestron Video set even if I've heard it's a case of diminishing returns.

    ★★★★

    An absolutely delightful romantic comedy! Can't believe I'd never seen this before but it's a no-brainer that this essentially made Julia Roberts a star. A great take on My Fair Lady as well.

    Fun Fact: Both halves are great it's just that children lose interest when a man isn't screaming in their face.
