    Battle Royale


    Battle Royale is a Japanese film from 2000 that has English subtitles. It's funny. The DVD, for some reason, defaults to Korean subtitles. But I'm like, "Why is this Japanese movie subtitled in Japanese?" I found out it was Korean when I switched the settings to English.

    Anywho, Battle Royale is the Japanese version of Hunger Games. There are a bunch of teenagers in a battle to the death on a remote island. It's pretty bad. It feels like a…

    John Wick: Chapter 2


    John Wick 2 is pretty faithful to the original. It's a dumb action movie. The beginning of the movie is very strong. It gets pretty flabby in the middle. And then they turn up the volume at the end.

    This one is a little more video game style than the first. Everything is a little less special because it's a rehash. Anywho, standard action flick... 3 bill-stars. Worth seeing.
    thanks... yow, bill

    The Accountant


    This is a solid 3 bill-star movie. Ben Affleck is an autistic savant who is an accountant and also a bad ass. (ha) The autism aspect gives The Accountant a somewhat original take on the usual action movie fare.

    Very funny... two Holly references in the movie. First, our autistic hero is touted as smarter than any number of people with advanced math degrees from Cambridge. Even better, the heroine in the movie was part of the Naperville North Math Club. Ha!

    The Accountant. 86 tomatoes. And 3 bill-stars. Light fun and action. Worthy.
