• Live Free or Die Hard (38/18)

    LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD – aka DIE HARD 4. This isn’t the best of the films for me, but I’d watch it over the second film anytime. I think the third film had its moments, but this one was more consistant. That said… For me, this is a film where technology is written somewhat […]

    Star Trek IX: Insurrection (37/17)

    STAR TREK IX: INSURRECTION – I liked the story here, with Data gone rogue right off the start. Again, it’s basically just a double length episode and could have played just as well on TV. There’s nothing special here, and it’s still not really a stand-alone film; there’s still a lot of issues with the […]

    Marecages, Lethal Weapon 4 (24/11)

    MARCAGES – A struggling family-owned dairy farm is having problems, and why not blame it all on the son? He always seemed to be around when bad things happened… Part coming-of-age film, part dysfunctional family, part seething hatred. The director wasn’t able to be in attendance, but he seemed certain, based on a statement that […]

    Another Earth, Lethal Weapon, Hobo With A Shotgun (14/7)

    ANOTHER EARTH – This reminds me a little bit of MELANCHOLIA – where there’s a huge astronomical event that is going to change (or destroy) the entire world, and yet, that’s not the primary point of the story. We have, instead, a story about choices, about destiny versus free will. Rhoda Williams (Marling) has made […]

    Blade Runner, West world, Godzilla Raids Again (3/1)

    BLADE RUNNER – I watched the USA theatrical cut with the voice over; it’s unusual after seeing it so many times without. I do think that the voice over is superfluous, but it’s interesting to hear it for a change. I was sure that there was more voiceover, but there really isn’t that much GODZILLA […]

    Tiny Furniture, Death Race 2000 (633/362)

    TINY FURNITURE – As much as I want to say these nihilists are a new generation hipster thing, I think it’s been a pretty common art school thing for eons. Aura is having such a horrible time with all her first world problems. She’s finished university and has no idea what she is going to […]
