Johnny English

The Bond / Secret agent spoof movie may have been done to death, but Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) does a pretty damned good job. Had me laughing far more than I expected.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

Best Little Whorehouse In Texas (1982) Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds in a slightly altered version of the Broadway musical. Dolly wrote a few extra songs for it, and they stick out like bright, shining stars in the middle of Musicaldom. There's dancing, singing, and naked people (both men and women, but not Dolly or Burt). Based extremely loosely on a true story. 8/10 on my personal scale.

Krampus (stupidly amusing)

The Devil All the Time. Story of several malevolent characters, but revolving around a boy/young adult growing up in W. Virginia. A good story, but could have delved deeper into the details as well as the peripheral characters.

Not great, but not bad. Better than I remember the Sylvester Stallone version was.

I saw Terminator: Dark Fate the other day. It wasn't great, but it wasn't as terrible as people said. Just spent so much time paying tribute to the previous movies that it just forgot why. But, honestly, after Salvation and Genisys I guess I kind of get it - they just erred to much on the side of not trying to be fresh and new this time.

Also saw My Spy, and it was a cute little kid-safe popcorn action movie with a cast full of comedians, one pro wrestler, and a generic kid character whose actor was probably underutilized. Also, Kristin Schaal was in it so it was awesome.

I liked it.


A Christmas Carol (2009) Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Cary Elwes, Colin Firth, Bob Hoskins, Robin Wright Penn. Disney motion-capture animated film. Pretty close to the book so it can be a bit dark at times. Not for very young kids. Recommended.

Was really hoping to download the Alistair Sim 1951 version.

Wasn't it a touching story that the Terminator retired and became a family man?

Not really. But it certainly was an interesting throwback to the T2 learning computer "I cannot cry but I know now why you do" bit.

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. (1985)

Okay, so casting Joel Gray as a Korean wasn't the best move (even though he's fabulous in the role), but the movie was written and directed by James Bond movie veterans. It's a little long, there are some scenes that could have been left on the cutting room floor, but all in all it's a hell of a ride!

oh wow, i haven't seen that movie in ages! always loved it

the chief thing i remember (aside from joel grey's performance, which made me uncomfortable even then) is kate mulgrew's insta-orgasm

midway (2019 i think)

i'm a big fan of movies that re-create historic battles, even though they tend to sacrifice a lot to focus on the combat

this one was pretty good, though it flopped (as these movies almost always do)

Vampires vs. the Bronx. A very cool diverse cast in a fun goofy story somewhat in the vein of The Lost Boys, with its own take: the vampires are also gentrifiers trying to buy up the neighborhood real estate.

WW84. I liked the aesthetic. Long, the plot dragged in the middle. Lacked emotional depth or connection -- Steve Rogers' death seemed to just check off a box. The sermon at the end was kinda hokey. But Lynda Carter!

The Godfather (1972)
The Godfather Part II (1974)

Second time seeing them. Brilliant except for some of the looped dialogue which sometimes becomes so obvious it distracts. Surprising flaw considering the attention to detail.

Serial Mom 1994
My wife and I thought this would be a good intro to John Waters for our teenage kids.
I think it is his most mainstream movie, maybe with the exception of Hairspray.

My daughter (just turned 14) didn't see anything amusing about Beverly Sutphin murdering people, and was afraid she would get away with it. My son was angered by the stupidity of all the people.
(Strange, I just looked it up and see that it was a box office bomb. I could have sworn it was successful.)


Good thing we didn't show them Pink Flamingos or Female Trouble.
