  • The House of Small Cubes

    The House of Small Cubes

    ★★★½

    Animated short film with FAKE PEOPLE.  Sad!

  • Welcome to Leith

    Welcome to Leith

    ★★★

    Fuck Craig Cobb and all the other racist bastards in this world.  You'll never achieve your goals because your ignorance won't allow it.  Enjoy your trailer park homes, each other's company and sad existence.

  • The Killer

    The Killer

    ★★½

    Some people will think I'm crazy, but apparently John Woo films aren't my thing.  His action films are so highly acclaimed, but the ones I've seen nearly put me to sleep.

    The Ron Says: I just couldn't get into it.  The story didn't grab me and the dated sound effects bugged me throughout.

  • Little Men

    Little Men

    ★★★

    Adult issues affecting kids.  The story of most of our lives.

    The Ron Says: A Decent indie drama that's worth seeing once.

  • I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

    I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

    ★★½

    Director Osgood Perkins nails the atmosphere in I am the Pretty Thing that Lived in the House, but the story is dull and not scary.  It's a slow burn that's heavy on slow with little to no reward for your patience.

    The Ron Says: Skip it.

  • Amanda Knox

    Amanda Knox

    ★★★½

    While it gets a little exploitative, Amanda Knox is still a compelling true crime documentary.  It's far too often that shotty police work both convicts the innocent and sets free the guilty.  Personally I think Knox and Sollecito are completely innocent, but it's the rush to judgement and poor investigation that leaves us unable to ever know 100% for sure.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Trolls

    Trolls

    ★★★

    My 6 year old son watched me rating this and got mad because I only gave it 3 stars.  Apparently for him it's a 5 star film.  It wasn't bad.  There was glitter farts and cupcake poop.  All 3 of my kids loved it.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Pervert Park

    Pervert Park

    ★★★

    It seems the point of Pervert Park is to give sex offenders a voice and show that they're human and not monsters.  Personally I believe that some of them are monsters, while others are just deeply troubled and in need of help.  Either way listening to some of their stories in this doc made me physically ill.  I've got three kids, and if someone did something to one of my kids I honestly wouldn't care if they were a monster or not.  I'd want to make them cease to exist.

    The Ron Says: Worth seeing if you can stomach the subject matter.

  • Superbad

    Superbad

    ★★★½

    Film #22 on my Re-watch Wednesday list

    When it was released back in 2007 and on several subsequent re-watches I loved Superbad.  I've always considered it one of my favorite comedies.  It's been at least a couple years since I last watched it, so today as I decided to get back to my Re-watch Wednesday list (it's been awhile) Superbad was the choice.

    I'm not sure if it's because I've seen it so many times or maybe just the fact…

  • The Fundamentals of Caring

    The Fundamentals of Caring

    ★★★½

    Rob Burnett's The Fundamentals of Caring (A Netflix original film) is a film with obvious flaws, but the humor and heart made it a very enjoyable experience.  I laughed quite a bit and hell I even cried.

    The Ron Says: See it.

  • Extremis

    Extremis

    ★★★

    Nominated for Best Documentary Short Subject, Dan Krauss' Extremis is a tough watch.  Dealing with end of life decisions in an ICU is definitely a job for someone else.  I just couldn't do it.

  • Bill Burr: Walk Your Way Out

    Bill Burr: Walk Your Way Out

    ★★★

    Not his best work, but it's still pretty funny.
