Peter Rabbit (2018)

Peter Rabbit (2018) Don’t ask me why I watched this. Perhaps a little dementia is creeping in to go along with my boredom and post oral surgery misery. I really don’t know why. Anyway, this movie was based on the charming classic story of Peter Rabbit written by Beatrix Potter. From the very get-go, there […]

Tangerine (2015)

I was so impressed with Sean Baker’s The Florida Project that I immediately checked out his other film, Tangerine (2015). I was not disappointed. Tangerine is an indie film that was made entirely with an iPhone 5. Unbelievable. This gritty film is about a couple of transvestites, a Donut Shop, and an Armenian cab driver […]

Tomb Raider

We might finally have a winner. Growing up playing video games, my generation has been waiting year after year for a good movie adaptation of a video game. Hell, we would settle for just average at this point. The genre kicked off back in 1993 with the ridiculously inept Super Mario Bros. and has continued […]

The Florida Project

I thought I was finished with 2017 films, but any film that involves mostly children that Matt Cale gushes over, certainly gets my attention. The Florida Project is a unique film created by Sean Baker of Tangerine fame. This movie is about Americans who are on the margin of a society of people who live […]

The Breadwinner

The Breadwinner is an animated movie. I generally avoid this type of movie, but even at my old age I’m trying to broaden my movie-watching horizons. This award winning movie was also nominated for an Oscar for best animated film of 2017. The animation was simple, stunning; the story sobering and terrifying. This film depicts […]

A Wrinkle in Time

And several in my brow. Recently, I have watched a couple of classic movies with my five-year old son – Jaws and the original Godzilla (the black and white Japanese version from 1954). He loved them and has now watched them multiple times. And, in case you are wondering, no, he has not had any […]

The Death of Stalin

The Death of Stalin is a blistering satire and coal-black comedy that chronicled the actual events surrounding the death of one of the most evil human beings in history. Armando Iannucci created a film that made genocide, gulags, random murder, child rape, high-level paranoia, backstabbing and paralyzing incompetence, all hilarious. After the death of Joseph […]

Ruthless and The Oscars

Ruthless and The Oscars Well, it is almost the time of year that we love to hate. The Oscars. As you know, the Academy seldom gets things right and cannot please everyone. Last year’s Oscar Ceremony was a debacle. Some knuckle-headed accountant was texting instead of taking care of business and threw Warren Beatty under […]


Is something burning? One of the best signs that you have just seen a worthwhile movie is you want to see it again. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t sure whether you liked it or disliked it because bad movies almost never illicit yearning for a second viewing. Well, unless you are into ironic viewings […]

Game Night

Can I play? Have you ever wanted to participate in one of those murder mystery nights with a group of people? Yeah, me neither. I tried it one time years ago and it was one of the most awkward memories I have. In order for it to be even remotely fun, everyone involved has to […]
