Annihilation (UK-2018)

Horror: A biologist is invited to investigate a strange shimmer that occurred over an area that effects one's DNA. Interesting concept and I should of enjoyed it more but it just puzzles me why they did not drive into the shimmer nor why they did not wear hazmat suits???? ... 5.0/8

Crawl (2019)

Horror: Florida (actually shot in Serbia) and we have a CAT 5 and heading right into it is a worried college girl fearing something has happened to her father. OK, we have some gators that get involved as well. I am a huge fan of creature films and this one was a pretty good one even though it would be extremely rare for gators to attack people like they did in this movie but that is what makes this movie not boring but the thing that bugged me the most was the helicopters flying around.... hello, its a CAT 5 Hurricane..... anyhow..... 5.5/8

The Lodgers (Ireland 2017)

Horror: OK, well.... it took not 1, not 2, but 3 attempts to get through this movie as it kept putting me to sleep. Twin siblings that live by themselves in a big mansion have now come of age for something, that something we do not know but it can't be good.... Atmospheric film that just does not delivers.... 3.5/8

Roguen One.
8/8.

I think that any times this movie is shown they need to at least show the first 10 minutes of A New Hope afterwards.......

Untamed Youth (1957) - Sort of a women in chains crossed with a rock n roll youth exploitation film. It starred a very hot Marie Van Doren. Not bad.

4/8

Treehouse (2019)

Horror: A Chef taking it easy on a vacation invites some girls over so he can test a new recipe.... well, this one goes bad. This movie would not have been so bad but they went over board on this pro women crap that destroyed what could of been a decent film.... 3.0/8

After 9 hrs of working in the yard, looks like it is 10 commandments for the rest of the night.

8
8\8 every year. Remember it used to be on Easter Sunday, then moved to Saturday because desperate housewives was their cash cow on sun nights. No sure when it moved to a week before Easter ....

So let it be written.....

The Report (2019)- movie about the Senate investigation into CIA enhanced interrogation techniques after 9/11. Adam Driver plays the main investigator, Daniel Jones. Very good movie. 6/8.

Winchester 73 ((1950) - I think that this may be my favorite western. Great story, great performances.

7/8

Richard Jewell
- Very good telling of the Olympic bomber story. Some people have commented on here that they make Jewell appear slow. I find that the depiction was of a very intelligent but awkward individual who just never fit in. We all know people like that. He was just hobbled by an unhealthy relationship with his mother and an unrealistically positive view of law enforcement figures.

Truly a low point in the mainstream media, only recently surpassed in sleaziness by their hatchet job on the Trump administration.

6/8

Blood Father (2016) 5/8 Mel Gibson plays a recovering alcoholic, ex-con, searching for his missing daughter. She turns up after some trouble with her drug dealer boyfriend and Gibson takes on the task of protecting her from the other bad guys. Kind of a retread story, but not a bad movie. Gibson is really good, kind of gave that Lethal Weapon/Riggs feel to his character.

The Runaways (2010) 2/8 Music biopic about the all-girl rock band The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie. Pretty slow and truthfully I had never heard of The Runaways before watching the movie. Apperently they were really popular in Japan, but not as much in the U.S. Movie wasn't great, slow and not really much to the story.

Outbreak (1995) 4/8 A really good cast, decent story. Dustin Hoffman and Morgan Freeman play soldiers in a disease control unit, when a new disease breaks out in Africa and is brought to America by a monkey. I thought it was a little slow and far fetched.

The Hangover (2009) 8/8 Classic comedy about a group of buddies who go to Vegas for a bachelor party and things go haywire when they wake up in the morning and can't remember anything.

The Shawshank Redemption (1994) 8/8 Another classic movie. One of my favorites of all time. Great Stephen King story.

I am a big Joan Jett/Blackhearts fan having seen them live three times. I thought the film was very well done. I had followed the Runaways after I had heard their single Cherry Bomb. Too bad they couldn't keep it together.

Good Boys - Funny movie with really likable kids. How can kids be so naive and so foul mouthed at the same time? The friendship dynamic reminded me of Breaking Away (1979), Stand by Me (1986) and American Graffiti (1973), all great coming of age movies. "Everyone knows you make your best friends in kindergarten" great line. How do early childhood friends survive puberty? I am fortunate to still have friends from early elementary school that I see on a regular basis. What a blessing!

6/8
