Force Majeure. The ideas raised about who we are and how we get through life, and the haunting images employed have stuck with me. Good film.
Lethal Weapon. It’s been a while. I’d forgotten the whole Vietnam vet angle. Mostly holds up. Good 80s buddy cop shoot ‘me up. Plus Busey.
Central Intelligence. Haven’t laughed this consistently throughout a movie in forever. Hart and Johnson crush it + Smart women + 16 Candles.
Sixteen Candles. The sweet parts were even sweeter. The Duck Dong parts were more uncomfortable. Hall, the little nerd, still cracked me up.
Secret Life of Pets. Took a while, but once things started happening I was sucked in. Very funny. Loved the old Basset Hound. Fliberty floo!
American Sniper. Know who wasn’t in this movie? The fuckers who made oil money in Iraq at expense of American soldiers and their families.
Ghostbusters. I enjoyed it fine. Plot had some holes. But I laughed some. But with this cast, it seems like it should have been funnier.
Mel Brooks: Make a Noise. Standard biodoc. But fun to get a little behind the scenes of his films. And Mel and Anne are super cute together.
The Warriors. As dumb & fun as It ever was. Back when NYC was terrible. Luther’s even crazier than I’d remembered. Come out and PLAAY-YAYYY!
