D.H.Arrival - 8/10 - It's Denis Villeneuve so it's a carefully considered and well constructed film. I guess the extent of your admiration will depend on your willingness to buy into it's ultimate premise.

I wanted to like this movie more than I did, but I couldn't help but feel that premise relied too much on being emotionally manipulative, time paradoxes being what they are.

Nocturnal Animals - solid B

Still not sure if Michael Shannon's performance warranted a oscar, but I'll be damned if I didn't eat this movie up for all of its Lynchian goodness. I'm still kind of coping with the ending, and I do feel like it might be a little unfair towards Amy Adam's character, but I won't say that it wasn't a very effective suspense/drama. Hopefully Ford doesn't wait another 5 years between films.

The Asian Connection (Daniel Zirilli/2016) 5/10

This is the second Steven Segal flick I saw from 2016 and I'm beginning to notice something, He wears the same orange sun glasses, the same black goatee, the same black outfit and the same necklace in each one. You look at the posters and they never ever change. His movies are still highly steeped in the early 1990s. It's like he doesn't know any better. Still it was fun.

InkdaubDragonslayer - 8/10


There's a lot of good things about that movie but for some reason it really bothered me that the princess died and was being eaten by the dragon's offspring. They don't even give her a chance to fight back.


If it wasn't for that I would have loved the movie.

After McKellen's Gandalf, Richardson's Ulrich is easily my favorite movie wizard.

Also, Vermithrax Pejorative is the best dragon name.

Agreed...especially since she proved to be so stand up with the final lottery.? It seemed a shame to see her laying there being eaten.?

Dirty Grandpa - 5/10

It has a "been there/cliched that" plot line, but any movie that has Aubrey Plaza and a Jodeci reference can't be all that bad. It would've been better if DeNiro and Danny Glover tried to out-Dirty each other, starting with a "Number 3".

In doing so, I think it wanted to set itself apart from traditional sword and sorcery fare, and it worked for me big time. Gave the film the dramatic heft that death was a certainty and anything could happen. Also, it and Reign of Fire remain the only films to portray the most realistic dragons, as contrary as that sounds.

Them! (1954) - 8.5/10

Would have been better with a more interesting cast, but it's nevertheless one of the better monster movies I've seen.

Aw, man - that's got James Whitmore in it. I love that guy.


Yeah - great monster movie. One of the earliest, IIRC, to use radiation mutation as the impetus for the monsters growth.

I do love the atomic age flavor. Also I don't mean to knock Whitmore, I should have specified that it's not the actors I took issue with but the characters they played. They were interchangeable and forgettable, to the point where I couldn't even remember their names and just thought of them as FBI-guy, Cop-guy, Old Science-man and Science-girl.

Hah. Sounds like the cast of The Thing From Another World: scientist guy 1, scientist guy 2, army guy 1, army guy 2, generic female lead...

Notorious (1946) - 9.5/10

See this for the first time in years. Probably the best dialogue I can remember from a Hitch movie. And my favorite Cary Grant performance.

The Wailing (Hong jin Na/2016) 6/10

It's a good movie but I honestly don't understand the hype. Tons of questions are left up in the air and it felt a little too long at almost 150 minutes. It's all so well put together and definitely the last act is pulse pounding but it really is like a ball you have to unravel and chew on it and it's not a film I would watch again to do that.

The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) - 7/10

One of the more underrated films in the Bond franchise that seems to get a little better every time I watch it. Aside from a few nonsensical scenes it's thoroughly entertaining and dear god Britt Ekland in that bikini

Yep - there's definitely something wrong with you.

Maybe a 6. But not great by any means.
