    The Man From Toronto

    ★★

    I generally dig Kevin Hart. I generally dig Woody Harrelson. I generally dig the flicks of director Patrick Hughes (“Red Hill” is a cool neo-Western and sue me – “The Expendables 3” and “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” are fun.). I definitely did not dig “The Man from Toronto,” which is now available to stream on Netflix and on which all three men toiled.

    ★★★½

    “Press Play” is schmaltzy, sentimental, manipulative and left me and my emotions feeling like we’d just been struck by a Mack Truck. I don’t know if it was the hour at which I watched it (late, for those of you playing at home) or the coupla beers consumed while watching, but “Press Play” got my waterworks a-workin’. Do with this intel what you will, but I found the experience therapeutic.

    Watching Scorsese fangurl over Spielberg is pretty much the most adorable thing ever.

    This movie is fucking rad. The description of it being a combination of Halloween and The Terminator is apropos - throw in a dash of John Hughes' oeuvre, The Bourne Identity and Drive and you really get the idea. Dan Stevens is awesome in the titular role - he looks a bit like a young Michael Biehn and kills like Schwarzenegger. Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett improve upon the already impressive game they displayed in You're Next. The Guest is a badass genre exercise with style to burn.
