Yours, Mine and Ours

Remember Cheaper By The Dozen that came out last year (and has a sequel coming out soon)? Take that movie and add 6 kids and cross it with The Brady Bunch. This is the story of a Navy Admiral, raising 8 kids on his own who meets his high-school sweetheart who is raising 10 kids […]

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Amazing. You can’t really expect anything else. The franchise has gotten so big and is so powerful that the producers would be foolish to skimp on any aspect of the film. In this movie Voldemort makes his first real appearance and as Hermione says in the movie: “Things are going to change.” The three friends […]

Army of Darkness

Chronologically this is the second part of the story; the first two movies covered the same time. Ash has been transported through time and becomes the prophesized one. He must make peace between two warring clans, convince them both that he is a good guy, fetch the Book of the Dead, lead a battle against […]

A Slightly higher remake / rewrite / update of the original. The story is basically the same only faster paced, with more fantastic story elements. In this movie you can see Bruce Campbell as Ash start to become the hero he is in Army of Darkness.

The Evil Dead

Saw II

Not a bad movie. I watched Saw for the first time this Halloween (in between running to the door every ten seconds). You don’t have to have seen the first movie to enjoy the second but it would help. There were a couple of scenes that made my skin crawl but all in all its […]

Birth

A very quiet, movie. After watching this movie you are left with the impression that rich people make very little noise. Nicole Kidman plays Anna, a widow of 10 years who still misses her dead husband, Sean, terribly. Sean is built up to be the greatest man that ever lived. At her birthday party (if […]

Glengarry Glen Ross

I’m still a little unsure of this movie. Lots of talking. Nothing really happens.

The Money Pit

Interesting, they made a movie about my life, and I’m played by Tom Hanks. This is another in a long list of movies I’m embarassed to never have seen. I’ve seen it now. Best scene: Tom Hanks flips the kitchen light switch which sets off a chain reaction of events that ends in the turkey […]
