    "Gimme the goddamn kitty cat bracelet, motherfucker!"

    I've apparently seen Bob Odenkirk in a number of things, but I don't recall him in any of them. I know he's the lead in Better Call Saul, but I've never seen it as I hated what little I've seen of Breaking Bad. My point is: I wasn't looking for an action movie with him as the lead and while the trailer looked pretty good, I wasn't entirely sold on it, especially when…

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

    ★★★★★

    "You have one choice, boy: sex or the saw. Sex is, well... Nobody knows. But the saw... The saw is family."

    Every time I watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 before today I was blinded by the romantic comedy aspects of the film and the relationship issues that our young couple faced. It kept me from appreciating the other themes of the film, such as family and the lengths that the small businessman needs to go to in order to…

  • The Enforcer

    The Enforcer

    ★★★

    "Captain, if you want to jerk all these people off, you can, but don't do it with me."
    "That's it, Callahan! You just got yourself a 60-day suspension!"
    "Make it 90!"
    "180! Give me your star."
    "Here's a 7-point suppository, Captain!"
    "What did you say?"
    "I said stick it in your ass!"

    Harry Callahan sure has a way with people. Not that he's exactly wrong about them. But he doesn't do himself any favors by constantly being abrasive with everyone. People tend to take it better when you tell them that they're stupid nicely.

    ★★★★

    "Buckle up. If we get in a high-speed chase, I want you strapped in."
    "I'm more worried about the wheels coming off this bitch when you reach the speed limit. You know, back in the day, we wouldn't have even stolen this piece of shit and we stole everything."

    I liked The Hitman's Bodyguard the first time I saw it, but it didn't really dazzle me or hit the right buttons for me to really love it. I appreciated it…

    ★★★★½

    "Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue."

    Jake Gyllenhaal is creepiness personified in the character of Louis Bloom. He shares a number of personality traits with a certain Travis Bickle, but Lou learns fast. He does the research. He knows just enough to make himself very dangerous. To the people he works with. To the people he films. And to anyone who might get in the way of him getting his story. Even the story is…

    This Is Where I Leave You

    ★★★★

    Exactly what I expected from it. Exactly what I wanted from it. Exactly as it should be.
