Little Women

Little Women

2019 ∙ Period Drama ∙ 2h 15min I am just killing it with these year-old movies! Movies based on 152-year-old books. I'm honestly not sure why I wanted to se...
BlacKkKlamnsman

BlacKkKlansman

It turns out I've seen quite a few Spike Lee movies over the years. The first one was School Daze back in 1988. The second I saw in the theater was Do the Right Thing...
My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel

I admittedly ended up watching this movie because of Rachel Weisz. I have a soft spot for her (and who amongst us men doesn't?) and thought, in seeing the poster, that...
There Will Be Blood

There Will Be Blood

I've been thinkin' on this one. And, despite what most critics and IMDB users think, I'm going to declare it astronomically overrated. The fact that so many people actually...
Atonement

Atonement

I read this book a bunch of years ago, and seem to recall a real Wuthering Heights thing going on. Of course I'm like the nine-millionth person to make that comparison...
The Good Shepherd

The Prestige

The Prestige

I knew next to nothing about this movie before I rented it. I couldn't even remember if it was the one with Ed Norton or Batman. I had a vague recollection somewhere in...
Empire of the Sun

Empire of the Sun

I'm completely ignorant about history. I think there was some war in the late 30's and early 40's, and I believe there were a bunch of countries involved. I think it...
Quills

Quills

Rating:  Ugh, there is really very little redeeming about this movie. Okay, Geoffrey Rush is a good actor, Kate Winslet's fair, and you get to see he...
Almost Famous

Almost Famous

Rating:  Every guy (and most women) dreams at some point of standing on stage rockin' out to thousands of adoring fans. Those of us with little or no m...
The Ice Storm

The Ice Storm

Never has a metaphor been so obvious. The Ice Storm, the frosty exterior, the freezing of emotions -- soulless wandering in a frigid scene. Anyway, this film has more...
