    Can we have a "Cast Away"...but in a post-apocalyptic world...Sand instead of water...And have "Wilson" talk this time as a robot?.... YES.... Hanks is back again and the dialogue between him and Jeff warms the heart as you come to realize that Jeff's existence is to serve more than just companionship to him, but to take the reigns as best friend to Finch's little buddy

    I'm sorry.... Maybe my expectations and wants preceded my viewing...But to me this was just another episode of The Sopranos pushing the 2 hr limit.... And saying that.... It was a mediocre episode at best... Really...There's reg episodes of the series that blow this away... On the plus side Vera Farmiga does a pretty spot on Livia Soprano...And Tony's guys.... Paulie...Sil...etc... are played well..... The only and biggest bright spot concerned Junior and his connection with the falling of Dickie....Bad?...Not at all...Just expected alot more...

    ★★★★★

    I can't believe I pushed this movie off for so long...A must watch...No long dialogue needed here...J.K. Simmons was def Oscar worthy here

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    I'll take "Movies that will mindf$#k you for $400 Alex"....When all said and done I did enjoy it though and Aster is 2-2 with me in the horror genre. Just be prepared to say WTF when the credits roll

    I don't think a day goes by where I don't drop a quote from this movie....Is that sad?...Not sure but it makes me laugh my ass off

  • [REC]

    [REC]

    ★★★½

    A "found footage" and Spanish sub-titled film?...Usually that's two strikes for me but REC quickly delivers....Down in the count 0-2 off the bat REC picks up the pace after a slow start and doesn't stop. The "found footage" aspect achieves the suspense and scares the audience craves and the dialogue and scenes are so quick the sub-titles grab you into the movie.. A pleasant surprise.. Would have loved to have seen this in a theater

  • The Descent

    The Descent

    ★★★★

    The "scariness" of this movie triples if you have any type of issues with claustrophobia....Even without, a great movie with the lights out

  • A Christmas Carol

    A Christmas Carol

    ★★★★

    This is my go-to Xmas movie and the version I enjoy...The others are good as well...But George C. Scott just seems to be made to play Scrooge

  • The Deer Hunter

    The Deer Hunter

    ★★★★½

    Probably one of the best scenes in American cinema and prob De Nirno's best as well

  • Good Will Hunting

    Good Will Hunting

    ★★★★★

    Affleck and Damon won an Oscar for the screenplay but I enjoy the fact the Williams won his only Oscar for best sup actor...It was a great role for him even though I was hoping for Burt Reynolds in Boogie Nights
