    Star Trek IX: Insurrection (37/17)

    by  • 1/17/2012 • film • 0 Comments

    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?

    During our trip to China (October 12-24) I didn’t really track the when and where of each of these films; many were on the flights, some were during hotel downtime. Most of these 22 films were during the over 40 hours of airport and flight time we had during our travels. Thankfully, Cathay Pacific had […]

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (468/269)

    by  • 9/26/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS – “We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold.” With those words, begins a two hour film hallucination. I forgot how seriously messed up this film is; not just for depicting the fucked up adventures of Duke and Gonzo. […]
