Last night instead of watching "the big game" I watched Quentin Tarantino's World War II film INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. I absolutely love Tarantino's use of language in this film. And I really don't think it can be overstated how incredible Christoph Waltz's performance as Colonel Hans Landa is. How he's able to make the audience actually like a nazi officer is absolutely amazing and just a testament to his skill. Besides 300, this was really my first introduction to Michael Fassbender, who I've come to respect more in recent years (I especially love him as Magneto in the new X-Men films). Melanie Laurent and Daniel Bruhl equally do excellent jobs as Shosanna and Fredrick Zoller respectively.

Me too but the best scenes to me are at the beginning with Landa at Monsieur LaPadite's place. That opening scene and the dialogue are amazing!

THE 15:17 TO PARIS

This is definitely not on par with Clint Eastwood's best efforts. Obviously, with the real life heroes portraying themselves, the acting was amateurish. Most of the movie isn't spent on the events on the train, maybe only the last 20. The rest of the film was them growing up and backpacking through Europe. Not to take anything away from the heroic acts these 3 men displayed in thwarting a terrorist attack, but based solely as a film, this didn't work for me and I even question the necessity of making a movie based on this event in the first place. 5/10

I was surprised to hear this week abc movie critic Sandy Kenyon’s review covering this movie.
He was very critical and not as respectful as your review that has shown appreciation to the heroic men.

I did a Pam Grier double-feature yesterday with COFFY and FOXY BROWN. COFFY is probably the more well known of the two but FOXY stands on her own as well. Pam does a good job in both as an ass kicking, take no prisoners, revenge seeking heroine. Also nice to see Sid Haig in both as well. Quentin Tarantino did swipe a song or two from COFFY for his Pam Grier staring film, JACKIE BROWN. And just a side note, as much as I respect and admire Pam Grier, her Jamaican accent in COFFY definitely could have used some work! lol

Yes, when you said turn around .... I thought of Jamie Lee Curtis in Changing Places.

She was on Top of her Game then.

I watched the original Krays 1990 film last night. Played by the Kemp brothers this is a decent film which i haven't seen for years. Standout roles for Billie Whitelaw who played Violet Kray and Susan Fleetwood who played Aunt Rose.

THE BRIDE WORE BLACK

A fantastic revenge story about a widow who tracks down the 5 people responsible for her husband's death. Apparently based on a novel by Cornell Woolrich, of which I'll have to get my hands on to read. Jeanne Moreau does a fantastic job as the seducing, emotionless heroine who will stop at nothing until all of these men are dead. It's easy to see the inspiration for Quentin Tarantino to make KILL BILL. My only grip is I felt the third act ran a little long in terms of her fourth victim. I thought this definitely could have been condensed some but other than that, this is nothing short of awesome. If you're able to get a hold of a copy, I highly recommend it! 7/10

MS. 45

Drafthouse Films did an excellent job with the Blu-Ray transfer for MS. 45. The picture and colors are the best I've ever seen the film. A very strong performance by Zoe Lund who plays a mute who is twice raped on her way home from work one day. Insuring it will never happen to her again, she becomes a vigilante who stalks the city of New York to get rid of any and all aggressive men. This film reminded me very much of a female portrayal of TAXI DRIVER where the grimy New York City is a character within itself as well. Another great revenge thriller. 7/10

Have you seen the Blu-Ray release that Drafthouse Films put out a few years ago? It looks great. The best print I've seen of the film!

I checked it again on another server and allowed.
Works for me. The Wife,, not so Much....

THE STENDHAL SYNDROME

One of the more recent Dario Argento films (1996) that I've viewed within the last 4 months. The CGI in the few scenes it was in was obviously bad and dated. Dario's daughter Asia Argento gives a strong performance of a detective slowly going insane as she attempts to track down a serial killer/rapist who has assaulted her as well. At times I was questioning where Dario was taking us as it was sometimes difficult to separate fiction from reality. A young Thomas Kretschmann stars as the villain. You may remember his work on Peter Jackson's 2005 KING KONG or from CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER or AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. 5.5/10

BLACK PANTHER

I'll start out by saying there is quite a bit of hype surrounding this film. While it is good and better than some other movies within the MCU, I don't believe it's in the upper echelon with the likes of CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, THOR: RAGNAROK or the original IRON MAN. Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan do fantastic jobs as both T'Challa/Black Panther and Erik Killmonger respectively. I understand the significance this film holds as being one of only a few minority superheroes but that doesn't mean it gets a free pass for breaking fertile ground. The second to third acts I felt seemed to drag and the film could have been trimmed down some. It opened up wonderfully with some nice action, set designs, use of light/colors and the technology was my favorite aspect of the film. I believe Black Panther is going to be one of the major characters going forward after the next 2 AVENGER films. 7.5/10

SPLATTER UNIVERSITY

A nice old fashioned 80's slasher movie with good music, a bad film transfer, some audio problems at certain parts of the film, and a predictable killer. I'm a sucker for cheesy 80's horror. 5.5/10

SICARIO

A slow burn of a film that I believe actually works for it. I don't feel it gets too inflated and times out at just the right moment before seeming to drag. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro play very well together about keeping Emily Blunt in the dark about her true motives of being on their team. Benicio doesn't have many lines of dialogue but when he does, he delivers them very cold and you believe this man is capable of a great many, hurtful and disturbing things. I'm looking forward to the sequel this summer! 7/10

Thank you for these informative well written reviews. My wife and I really appreciate and enjoy them. I read them to her, she’s not a poster.
We will certainly be looking to catch up with the Slasher flick and the Brolin / Del Toro movie. I will check out the BP but she’s not into Super Hero movies.

The second to third acts I felt seemed to drag and the film could have been trimmed down some. It opened up wonderfully with some nice action, set designs, use of light/colors and the technology was my favorite aspect of the film. I believe Black Panther is going to be one of the major characters going forward after the next 2 AVENGER films. 7.5/10

SPLATTER UNIVERSITY

A nice old fashioned 80's slasher movie with good music, a bad film transfer, some audio problems at certain parts of the film, and a predictable killer. I'm a sucker for cheesy 80's horror. 5.5/10

SICARIO

A slow burn of a film that I believe actually works for it. I don't feel it gets too inflated and times out at just the right moment before seeming to drag. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro play very well together about keeping Emily Blunt in the dark about her true motives of being on their team. Benicio doesn't have many lines of dialogue but when he does, he delivers them very cold and you believe this man is capable of a great many, hurtful and disturbing things. I'm looking forward to the sequel this summer! 7/10



Thank you for these informative well written reviews. My wife and I really appreciate and enjoy them. I read them to her, she’s not a poster.
We will certainly be looking to catch up with the Slasher flick and the Brolin / Del Toro movie. I will check out the BP but she’s not into Super Hero movies.


Thank you, I definitely appreciate that and glad I could be of assistance! I'm an Amazon Prime member so I was able to see both SPLATTER UNIVERSITY and SICARIO via their streaming service just FYI.

Amazon prime is good but it's expensive here in Germany. You need to use it alot to get your monies worth.


The Mafia Is Not Primarily An Organisation Of Murderers.
First And Foremost,The Mafia Is Made Up Of Thieves.
It Is Driven By Greed And Controlled By Fear.

Between The Law And The Mafia, The Law Is Not The Most To Be Feared

"What if the Mafia were not an organization but a widespread Sicilian attitude of hostility towards the law?"

Just saw rebel without a cause. I never could understand why Jim was fighting people for. He had it made his parents owned a house, he had his own car they had money. Plus Daddio didn’t do a number on him. So he had a little drink once in a while big deal. Plus he got Natalie Wood.

Buzz had to fuck around with his button knife. Jim should have cut hiss balls off.

The Prime streaming service is getting better in my opinion, movie wise. They're trying harder to compete with Netflix. Before the last year or so it was kind of garbage and I never used it. But when I saw them adding more and better content, I began taking more advantage of it.
