The wifey and I watch a lot of movies together... a lot! Often, we'll wanna watch a movie but be out of ideas on what exactly to pop in. So my lady suggested we watch my movie collection in alphabetical order all the way through. I have over 300 plus films in my collection but I can't remember the last time I bought a movie, so if you permit, I will share my movie collection with you, one by one, A to Z, and we'll see what holds up and what embarrassing entries I thought were worth a purchase at one point in time.
First off "3:10 to Yuma".
when a movie is spanked by the critics like “Let’s Be Cops” with a current sickly score of just 12% I tend to follow suit, but I must be taking crazy pills because I not only liked the Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. comedy, I really liked it.
While I agree, taking this film too seriously is not it’s intended method of viewing, I was permanently thrown off by early story choices that were made that removed all essential suspense from happening.
“Deliver Us from Evil”, delivers some pretty spectacularly bad screenwriting that makes for more than a few moments of unintentional laughter. Worse off, this is another film that way overstays its welcome with its obese running time, so much so that you might need a Priest to exorcise you from the demon of boredom.
Explosions, explosions, slo-mo explosions, followed by a smidge of exposition, followed by explosions, explosion, slo-mo explosions with a wisecrack or two. If this is your bag than Michael Bay will never face extinction.
“They Came Together” may not have reached the heights of “Wet Hot American Summer”, but it still nails its target, delivering some very memorable “out there” moments, and best yet, creating a comedy with a very high rewatchable factor.
I could go on my usual “Tom Cruise is so talented and just might be my favorite actor” rant, but I won’t, just know he brings his usual incredible fine tuned intensity, charm, and humor to make this film a really fun time at the movies.
