Honkytonk Man


Absolutely incredible. A simple tale told masterfully. Eastwood's direction is assured and full of passion; this might be his greatest masterpiece.

Jurassic World (2015)




I don't watch these movies for the story, but this had me wondering why they didn't even try. That, plus the movie being devoid of any interesting characters made the first 40 minutes a complete waste of time. None of the actors did anything to make themselves stand out. Vincent D'Onofrio is the one actor in the movie that I really like, and he did nothing here to indicate that he has any talent. I'm easily entertained by Dinosaurs and destruction, so I was fine once the action started, but besides that, I thought this was poor.

That^^and it's sequel are on my watchlist. Not sure how they got there; maybe from you, Neiba?
Not sure. I talked about them here a couple of times but I wasn't the only one. I think you'll like it cricket! The sequel is also great!

The Big Combo (1955)

From the top 100 noirs list, which is a genre I normally undervalue, but I really liked this one. I would have to make a guess that Tarantino is a fan of this one due to some possible influences. The bad guys were great in this one, and some nice dialogue and memorable scenes.

The Burning

A Friday the 13th knock-off that's actually a lot better than Friday the 13th.

That canoe scene was legit.

Colorful, fun, and wildly entertaining. A little light on substance though.

I do like to see others agree with me.

3 Bad Men

The Fordian elements and themes which would be used throughout his career are all here: redemption through sacrifice, the eternal struggle of good vs. evil, the idea of the 'Promised Land', the vast, untameable American landscape,etc. The imagery in this film is striking, absolutely striking. What Ford was able to achieve here is worthy of much admiration. It's a very funny movie as well. I think this one will grow on me as time goes by. Worth revisiting in the future.

Oh, do you? XD I thought your goal in life was to be against the world all the time!

Oh, no. Not at all. I want to be completely in sync with the world. The problem is you're all wrong so often.




Into the Woods (2014)



Good film adaptation of the Sondheim musical with good singing/acting (especially Meryl Streep), an enjoyable story, and excellent cinematography. There are a few plot holes, and a lot of the humor seems forced, but overall it's a good show.

I am genuinely surprised by how much I liked this.

The Long Gray Line


Ford, one of the greatest artists in the history of the medium, has crafted many masterpieces throughout his career. The Long Gray Line is one of those masterpieces. A tale of generations, family, loyalty, and honor; just as humane and profound as his other works. My 22nd film from him.



Super 8



Overall, I was glad the crash scene was at the beginning since I had already seen it.


It's a good movie and I was surprised by some elements that it didn't follow like the other monster/alien-thriller movies that include kids.


Basically this movie is about an underground...(?) alien who wants to build his spaceship back and go home. You'd usually think: "It's gonna be like E.T. and they (the kids) are gonna help him build the spaceship back. Well you're wrong. They barely meet the alien and
WARNING: "spoilers" spoilers below
they almost get eaten by it (for 2 of them).



We also barely see the alien as itself in broad daylight. It's always hidden by darkness or is only given glimpses of, which serves up more tension.


This movie entertained me and I thought it was a good concept to do a movie with kids + alien + action + thriller without shaky cam or found footage.


There are still some flaws and, yes, a LOT of flares (even though not as much as in Star Trek), but still, Imma give it a

Hot Shots: Part Deux



Overall, I died laughing. It is, in my opinion, the funniest movie parody I have ever seen, although I haven't seen the original one.


There is no way of taking this movie seriously and I think has to be viewed without the criticizing eye. It's just plain fun. This movie is in fact a ½-hour long collection of every action movie cliché and 1 hour of parodies of it.


I enjoyed the movie a lot and is listed in one of my favorite "funny" movies (I don't consider it a comedy since it's not the actor's words that make you laugh but the ridiculousness of the actions).


As I said, there's no point of seeing this movie with the critics' eye, so I give it a
of pure entertainment.
