The Great Wall (2016)
Another Brick in the Wall
Monsters and explosions set against The Great Wall of China, offering a different reason for the wall's existence. What's not to like?
Some folks got all worked up because it didn't seem realistic that Europeans are in a Chinese story at this time. Oh, so the monsters with big teeth threatening to take over the world were considered to be realistic? It's a movie, sit back and enjoy, not everything needs to be a big problem in the world.
The Perfect House (2013)
I never once knew what the hell was going on in this movie, but the guy with no eyelids was disgusting.
The name of this movie should have been "Weed Whacker."
Ahí va el diablo (2012)
The Devil hangs out at a rest stop in Tijuana. Well, it's a little original in that respect.
The Immigrant (2013)
A Hidden Gem
I had not even heard of this movie until I looked at Marion Cotillard's filmography and decided to watch it. Fine performances by Joaquin Phoenix and Cotillard. If only more movies were this well done and well made.
Some interesting visuals don't make up for a story that doesn't really engage the viewer. I really wanted to like this but it became a little annoying.
Harbinger Down (2015)
The Thing Meets Alien vs. Deadliest Catch...nothing original, but still good fun for genre fans. All the special effects were practical, there are no computer effects at all in this movie.
I Am Pretty Sure This Was Boring
What's scary is how boring this is. There is a great sense of atmosphere created, only to linger in some scenes for way, way, way (I'm tawkin' WAY!) too long! Oh, my God, get on with it! Waiting for it to get to the end credits felt like waiting to die! Long silences are not as artsy fartsy as some would have you believe. I was really looking forward to this movie, but it was a chore.
Office Uprising (2018)
28 Mondays Later...
"We have a killer severance package."
Clever office-zombie comedy. It's as if The Belko Experiment somehow got adapted as a sitcom, and this was the pilot. Apparently, it's similar to another movie called Mayhem, but I'm as of now, I am unfamiliar with it.
Several chuckles to be had, could have been funnier, but the cast are so good and so likeable that they fill in any gaps you may notice. If you've ever worked in an office, you will find something to relate to here.
Nice to see Zachary Levi (as "Anusbaum") in villain-mode.
Sail Into Danger!
Two couples on a yacht in the Mediterranean sail into danger...hey, that would have been a better title for an early 90's cable TV movie, "Sail Into Danger!"
It's predictable and not well constructed. Eric Roberts does his usual grinning maniac bit, poor Rutger Hauer is good but the script lets him down and he's supposed to be the same age as Roberts and Karen Allen, and he's clearly not. Connie Nielsen (secretly my wife, don't tell anyone) is on hand to act weird and sexy. Karen Allen is an actress I would, and have, watched in anything, and the trend continuous here.
Black Dog (1998)
Road House Hits the Road
An action movie featuring Patrick Swayze, Randy Travis and Meat Loaf?
Holy flippin' catfish, it's like the holy trinity of cinematic casting brilliance! Okay, calm down, it's not The Wild Bunch or anything, but seeing these three names above the marquee certainly must have incited riots amongst the general 1998 movie-going public! This movie completely ignores the opportunity to have all three sing a theme song together, it would have topped that Sting/Rod Stewart/Bryan Adams sing-a-long from the 1993 version of The Three Musketeers, no question. Alas, it was not to be...
Black Dog is an okay action movie, a sort of Road House Hits the Road. Lots of fairly original scenes of trucks and cars crashing, racing and other general vehicular mayhem. If you're some kinda movie elitist, then you will probably never watch this anyway. It's mission is to entertain and then be forgotten about a day later, and it does all that.
Live a Little, Love a Little (1968)
A Little Less Fight and a Little More Spark
Late 60's Elvis flick that seems like some of his earlier movies, but has shed some of that earlier 60's vibe for a more modern comedic tone.
The dune buggy scenes at the beginning, Albert the great dane and Elvis debuting "A Little Less Conversation" are all highlights.
Stay Away, Joe (1968)
Just Stay Away
Wacky, offensive and strange, I do believe this is Elvis' worst movie.
Tickle Me (1965)
Tickle Me This
This one starts off all average Elvis movie-ish, then morphs into a manic, slapsticky Scooby-Doo-ish thing towards the end, which is just great!
Watching all these Elvis movies has made me realize that my mother dressed me exactly like 60's movie Elvis in all my earliest elementary school pictures.
Girl Happy (1965)
Generic But Fun
Everything was going great and then one of Elvis' bandmates actually uttered the line, "The King is dead!" and that kinda put a creepy damper on things.
Viva Las Vegas (1964)
Why didn't someone think to pair Elvis on screen with a leading lady of equal pizazz until now?
Ann-Margret could easily call this her own star vehicle, she commands your attention that much. She was extremely popular with the public at this time too, and this movie had the biggest box office of any Elvis movie. The two together seem to thrive together on screen, maybe dating in real life helped in that department.
The excellent title song, along with scenes of pure energy and retro Vegas scenery all help to make this one of Elvis' most loved movies.
The 60's, a time when you would pick up two strangers hitchhiking and let them ride on the back of your truck (no seatbelts!) with your eight year old niece, and then leave her with them at the world's fair!
Elvis and the little girl are undeniably cute together. So is Elvis with teeny Kurt Russell in his film debut, kicking Elvis in the shins.
Nice to see Seattle in the 60's, and the story deviates slightly from the usual Elvis movie formua.
Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962)
Formulaic Elvis Movie
One of the more average Elvis movies, two girls, one good, one bad, guess who will get their man.
Although supremely talented as a nightclub singer, Elvis prefers to be a fisherman! Set in Hawaii, where Elvis liked to hang, like a few other movies of his. Adequate entertainment but follows that Elvis movie formula we all know.
Wild in the Country (1961)
Elvis Movie With a Little Depth
I initially assumed by the poster and the title that this was going to be one of Elvis' guitar pickin' and singin' movies, only this time set on a farm. Instead, I got a surprisingly deeper drama about a troubled young man trying to control his anger and find his place in the world.
Plenty of scenes of angst, with very little singing. At times, it gets very dark, well, for a 1961 movie at least. Modern audiences may find it melodramatic, but for Elvis, it was at least a break from playing the smarmy singer with a heart of gold who wins the girl. He'd get plenty of opportunity in later movies for that.
King Creole (1958)
One of the Best Elvis Movies
I had no idea that Elvis ever made a movie with a director like Michael Curtiz. This is a musical drama noir, definitely not like the later Elvis movies in the least. This is dark and dangerous, with some bluesy tunes you don't normally hear in an Elvis movie.
Elvis has one of his greatest supporting casts ever too: Walter Matthau, Vic Morrow, Carolyn Jones, Dean Jagger and Delores Hart (was also in Loving You with Elvis, and went on to become a nun).
Jailhouse Rock (1957)
Elvis in the Slammer
This is a very enjoyable musical drama, Elvis has more of a character to play here, as opposed to just playing himself, and he's more than serviceable. There was always that potential for acting greatness with him, and it pokes through here.
The songs are great, some are classics now. Obviously the Jailhouse Rock number is famous and well-loved now, and deserves to be.
Love Me Tender (1956)
Lovely and Tender
Elvis rockin' and rollin' after the Civil War. Not musically accurate, historically speaking, but forgivable.
This is a fine little western tale, and Elvis makes a respectable movie debut, not as the star, but in a supporting role. He shows a lot of potential, but he would never escape his own shadow in his future movies.
George Michael: Freedom (2017)
The Voice of my generation, in my opinion. He made so much music that will play on for many years to come. Still, I feel sad that he won't be here to create any more. His evolution into becoming himself took his whole life and was documented perfectly in his songs.
Damn, he really knew how to craft some perfect pop songs though!
Blue Demon (2004)
This could have been better but it kept getting worse as it went along. Some bad F/X and acting don't help, but also the scriptwriter thinks we would rather see more scenes about the lead characters discussing their marriage, or Jeff Fahey hamming it up badly in a poorly written role.
It's dumb, but looks like a Terrence Malick picture when compared to some more recent sillier shark movies.
Girls Trip (2017)
That grapefruit scene had me trapped somewhere between horror and hysterics.
Raunchy and unpredictable. Tiffany Haddish is dangerous!
While We're Young (2014)
While We're Laughing
"You're an old man with a hat."
Watts and Stiller hip-hop dancing made my whole day.
