    Straight Time

    ★★★★

    I'm not sure how, but despite being a low life asshole, Dustin Hoffman convinced me to root for him in this. He's incredible. Easily as good as his performance in Midnight Cowboy and all the others movies he gets more accolades for. A young Kathy Bates. Gary Busey as a junkie. Harry Dean Stanton as a charming settled down thief, bored with suburbia. A wonderful 70's crime drama.

    At one point, while cruising a truck stop, Ernie points out a guy's Looney Tunes basketball shirt.…

    Turbulence 3: Heavy Metal

    ★★★

    Douche-chills: The Motion Picture.
    It's as if some food court druid wrote a script between his shifts at Hot Topic and jerking off to Columbine footage.
    That said, I had a lot of fun watching this. I'm going to watch it again soon and probably once a month or so for the rest of my life.
