The Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland is one of the original attractions from when the park opened. It is filled with animatronic animals and shows every bit of its sixty-six years. Yet, inexplicably, it always has a long wait time because, well, I’ll have to get back to you on that one. For lack of […]
Film TitleJungle Cruise
Jungle Cruise is a reel entertaining movie from Disney
Film TitleThe Woman In The Window
An agoraphobic New York woman spies on her neighbors
Jennifer Jason Leigh
A copycat of Copycat. And Hitchcock.
A beloved truffle pig is kidnapped in Oregon.
Pig is almost certainly not the movie you’re expecting it to be. I know it wasn’t the one I was expecting. On paper it sounds like yet another of the winking, high-concept Nicolas Cage Vehicles™ that have made up the majority of his 21st century output, the story of a reclusive former chef hunting down […]
Film TitleThe Mule
A 90 year old Korean War Vet goes to work as a drug mule
Patrick L. Reyes
(A tirade in the form of a movie review) Based on a true story. Clint Eastwood plays Earl Stone, a nonagenarian down on his luck. Lucky enough to be alive but homeless and broke at age 90. The internet played havoc on his flower business. He is estranged from his family. The times have no […]
Film TitleThe Odd Couple
Fastidious Felix moves in with his slob best friend because of a marital split-up
The Odd Couple is a classic comedy from another time, a different era, no, another planet. It was not violent or vulgar and men wore coats and ties, even to poker games. None of this is what really sets this movie apart from today’s fare. The difference is great acting, banter and dialogue that is […]
Film TitleTerminator Salvation
Marcus Wright is half human, half machine and he is looking for John Conner.
Helena Bonham Carter
“Terminator: Salvation” – Eff yeah. My original review of Terminator: Salvation was written in 2010. I’d like to believe my writing has gotten a lot better since then, but I’m biased. As it turns out, Goat discovered that nobody had reviewed Terminator: Salvation over at Ruthless Reviews, so I volunteered my review. But first, I […]
Some movies are so bland they pretty much leave your head as the end credits roll. Others contain such unnerving scenes… like the opening of Jaws … that they are never forgotten. The horrifying death of that helpless skinny dipper is the perfect example of how a movie can worm its way into your brain […]
Film TitleBlack Widow
From birth, Natasha Romanova is groomed to be a KGB operative, the Black Widow.
“Black Widow” – Back up a step. Not even a pandemic can stop Marvel. Even with the delayed movie releases, Marvel seemed to be ready for any contingency. WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki have filled in the movie/television schedule that has otherwise been a giant void of nothing. Now, with things opening […]
Film TitleThe Tomorrow War
A really stupid story about a man conscripted to fight in a future war
The sun’ll come out tomorrow Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow There’ll be sun Just thinkin’ about tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow ‘Til there’s none Director Charles McKay and writer Zach Dean slathered on the sunblock for this shlock, with the inspired title of The Tomorrow War. (A personal note: This humble […]
Film TitleWerewolves Within
Werewolf creature terrorizes a town during a blinding snowstorm
1 Hr 37 minutes, R for hands getting chewed off. Fair Value of Werewolves Within: -$4.00. “I feel like I’m trapped in a bad dinner theater murder mystery, and they’re not letting me leave.”- this quote, uttered by one of the characters, completely embodies the experience of this film. From the Uwe Boll School of […]
