twitter sized review

The Collection (2012) - bodies and plot holes pile up in this pretty standard "1st one was a surprise hit what do we do now" sequel 4/5

WINGS OF DESIRE (1987): An angel who roams Berlin, observe people and reading their thoughts, decides he wants to become human and experience what it means to have a body. A philosophical and poetic, (mostly) black and white German arthouse classic---so naturally Hollywood remade it as a mushy color romance with Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan. 5/5 (for the real movie).

"Quantum of Solace" (2008)
Daniel Craig's second turn as 007 takes James Bond to Italy, Austria, Haiti and Bolivia on the trail of an industrial criminal who plans to take control of South America's water supply.
"QoS" is generally considered to be DC's weakest Bond outing but it's got enough fast paced butt kicking action in it to make me forgive the fairly pedestrian plot.

"Kong: Skull Island" (2017)
It's 1973 and the Vietnam War has just ended. A group of scientists and their military escorts set out to explore an uncharted South Seas island... and discover not only the giant guardian ape Kong, but lots of other huge, nasty creatures who don't take kindly to trespassers.
If you put "Apocalypse Now" and "Jurassic Park" in a blender you'd have this movie. The casting is great (esp. Samuel L. Jackson as the half-crazed military commander) and the effects are impressive, so fans of Giant Monster Cinema should find this "Kong" entertaining enough in a big, loud, silly sort of way.

"Skyfall" (2012)
Daniel Craig's 3rd James Bond film pits 007 against a disgraced former double-O agent turned cyber-terrorist (Javier Bardem) who carries a pretty major grudge against MI6 in general and Bond's boss "M" (Judi Dench) in particular.
Sam Mendes' epic thriller is about fifteen minutes too long but otherwise it's absorbing spy-and-counterspy action.

Zombies on Broadway - I liked this a lot better than bela lugosi meets a brooklyn gorilla, mostly because the two guys in this one aren't a fake Dean martin and Jerry Lewis they are just two vaguely funny guys.

Two "press agents" ( whatever that is) go to the tropics to try and find a zombie for a nightclub in New York. When they get there, they meet a hot (for 1940 or whenever this is) nightclub singer who helps them with their mission. They get in trouble with mad scientist Bela Lugosi who's doing the mad science in the jungle, as they tend to do. A monkey provides comedy relief, that kind of vibe.

what can I say, I'm an idiot and I love dumb entertainment and being dumb
5/5

FANTASY MISSION FORCE: Kung fu comedy in which a ragtag team of oddballs tries to rescue four Allied generals (including Abraham Lincoln!) from Japanese Nazis; they encounter Amazons and a haunted house on their way to a bloody, ROAD WARRIOR inspired finale. Action-packed and totally insane from start to finish, this is one of the very few movies you'll watch where you can honestly say you have no idea what will happen next. Jacky Chan is top billed, but arguably Brigitte Lin is the main star. 4/5.

GHOST WORLD (2001): Cynical Enid (Thora Birch) has no plans after high school graduation, but what starts out as a prank on an eccentric older record collector (Steve Buscemi) turns into a complicated friendship that provides some direction in her life. Perfect for angsty teenage girls, but Birch and Buscemi's weirdly real chemistry and quirky supporting characters give it an appeal beyond its target demographic. 3.5/5.

They try to make her look frumpy but Birch is kinda weird-girl sexy here. Johansson was like 15 or 16 at the time, even though she was playing a high school grad, so I'm not going to talk about how hot she was. 2 or 3 years later she suddenly became amazingly hot.

COLUMBUS (2017): A young librarian and a Korean translator fall in love, very slowly, while bonding over discussions about architecture. The dry material and patience-testing pacing make it not for everyone, but there's no denying this is a highly intelligent and lovingly crafted movie. 3.5/5.

THE DARJEELING LIMITED (2007): Three brothers, each at a personal crossroads, reunite on a "spiritual" quest through India which turns out to be more about coming to grips with their parent's legacies. A quintessential Wes Anderson movie---formally composed visuals (with a stunning turmeric and saffron color scheme), quirky characters with slightly detached performances, a mildly absurd plot---capable of absorbing you in its off-center but oddly believable universe. 4.5/5.

right I meant now.

Under the Shadow (2016) - this is better than the other Iranian horror movie I saw which was a goth vampire on a skateboard one. for an independent effort its pretty good but it will come up very short for non charitable horror fans. It's not poorly made it's just very limited in what scares and whatnot it offers and more of a 4 star foreign movie than a horror one in many places.

During the iran and iraq war a woman and her kid in tehran are besieged not only b bombs but djinns. thats a Muslim ghost fyi. AS you can imagine, it's not a very fun scenerio for them.

2.5 /5 watcheable but badly needed some pro help on the story side

THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE (1991): Stories from the lives of two women---Polish Weronika and French Veronique---who are both musicians, look identical, and seem to share a psychic bond that is never explained. Beautifully filmed and scored, Irene Jacob is ravishing, and it's all very enigmatic and reminiscent of Antonioni; is the story satisfying, though? 4/5.
