Crop And Save
The Irishman (2019)
Why do you get someone with a thick Italian accent to play an Irishman?
So this movie is literally a whose who of Italian actors, with one off the all-time great Hollywood directors and producers, however it still manages to be underwhelming. Watching it felt like death by a thousand cuts and is a disgrace to The Godfather and Goodfellas.
The Laundromat (2019)
A bunch of mega-rich liberals railing against the free market system.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Chop this movie in half and it would be a solid 8. This version of the Avengers is painfully long; it would be a thriller like the last installment if it was way shorter.
The Last Kingdom (2015)
I thoroughly enjoyed this series. As a veteran of modern combat, I always wonder if I could have handled the rigors of warfare in different epochs.
I was a little disappointed in the ending. I would have like to see one or two more episodes to wrap the story up a little cleaner.
The Favourite (2018)
Felt like I was sold a false bill of goods
So the trailer for the Favorite make it look like a historic drama starting several of the best women actors of our era. What it turned into was a vile, smut filled piece of garbage with no historic value whatsoever.
Do not waste tour time, you've been warned.
The Commuter (2018)
Liam is too old for action movies
The commuter was okay, it has a couple of plot twists but come on, Liam too old for action movies. I like watching him kick butt too but those days are behind.
This movie is chock full of unbelievable things which is okay when I'm watching a Marvel movie but that's a different genre.
Liam needs to take on some different roles because his days as an action hero are behind him.
Bird Box (2018)
The meme's are far better than the movie
Personally this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I watched it because of the meme's and they're far better than the movie.
Don't waste your time, you've been warned.
A lot of environmentalism
This is one of my favorite shows of all time but this is one of my least favorite. You'd think Marshall would figure out his idol was completely wrong; just like most environmentalists.
Scott Caan has written a beautiful movie that gets to the heart of what love is. At times the movie feels very contemporary then it feels like a throwback to the movies of the 40's and 50's.
Caan's vision as an artist an artist is bold. I say this because he put a a vision of what love and loss feels like.
Great date movie.
Bleed for This (2016)
Teller is outstanding
Miles Teller has become one of, if not the best actor of his generation. He's become equally at home in action, comedy or dramatic roles. He thoroughly surprised me as the Pazmanian Devil, Vinny Pazienza.
The Death of Stalin (2017)
This movie was just awful!!! You would think with such a great cast this would be a great movie but it's just terrible. I don't know what they were going for but it totally missed the boat with me. I believe they were going for a comedy but it's not. It's definitely not a drama either, it just sucks!
The Great Wall (2016)
One of the worst movies ever made
This had to be one of the worst movies ever made. I don't understand how it has a six (6) metascore unless the studios marketing department paid people to review the movie. After thirty minutes I walked out of this epic failure.
Arthur Miller: Writer (2017)
A bit revisionist
An enjoyable documentary which HBO has gotten quite good at producing. There's little doubt the Arthur Miller is one of the best playwrites in American history.
There's a fairly long portion dedicated to the McCarthy hearings in the 1950's. This portion of the movie is quite revisionist because the Venona Papers that were released by the former Soviet Union confirmed that most of the people suspected by Congress were in fact communists and many were spies, including a member of FDR's cabinet.
Bus Stop (1956)
Awful Southern Accents
Even with one of the most beautiful women of all time, this movie is almost unwatchable because of the awful accents.
The Monuments Men (2014)
Could've Been Better
The potential for Monuments Men was to be one of the all-time great movies, however, George Clooney's direction and screenplay were both lacking. The effort was there; Matt Damon, John Goodman and Bill Murray all deliver solid performances but it wasn't enough to carry this movie to the level it deserved.
Cate Blanchett also delivers another outstanding performance in a supporting role further solidifying her place as one of the best of her craft. She and her fellow British actors continue to prove that the level of acting in the United Kingdom is far superior to Hollywood.
Sadly the American cinema has fallen by the wayside just like our education system.
Oz the Great and Powerful (2013)
Awful, dreadful, abysmal! Possibly the worst movie ever made.
On a recent flight I attempted to watch this dreadful CGI garbage but after twenty nauseating minutes, that I'll never get back, I turned it off and read a book instead. I went into this movie with optimistic expectations because there were a number of actors, chief among them was Rachel Weisz, however I was extremely disappointed with the amount of CGI. Furthermore I had no real expectation of James Franco but found his performance to be just terrible.
If Hollywood continues to rely on CGI while neglecting quality scripts and acting, I believe they will continue to see lackluster returns at the box office. CGI should be a tool to enhance the story not be the only reason to see the movie. The Matrix and Avatar were pioneers in this new technology but it was used to make the movies better. Oz has an awful script and plot and the result was an unwatchable movie.
