RR, as a person, is awful too.




They Live (1988) - 6/10
Very fun, weird 30min introduction that serves no purpose, and when the real premise of the movie is met it's basically an hour of action non stop. The acting is mostly terrible, the corny one liners are (rarely) hit and (mainly) miss, and the action has some great moments but also a whole lot of lousy ones. The fistfight is a highlight, and there is a lot of gay subtext there so everybody will be happy. It's a shame they didn't even try to do the great movie the premise could have lead to.

but Ive... never seen Richard Jewell...

One thing we can certainly agree on, drink, is that 15:17 to Paris is fucking terrible

whoops, I said "RR" instead of "n_l" - now I will really get it

Yes, 15:17 to Paree is awful

The second one is a lie. I reacted that way because of RR?s too-positive review of the movie ;) It?s not shit. But it?s not very good

Which one is a lie?


You are right.

And I am really upset at Clint these days. He is so talented and has the ability to make great movies, but he is obsessed with his real life stories that simply aren?t worthy of feature films.

I just saw the movie on iTunes.

It's decent, but I wish Clint would go back to when Hollywood was the "Dream Factory" and drop his obsession with these real-life hero stories. The only great one was American Sniper. His four movies since then: Sully was mediocre, The 15:17 to Paris was absolute shit, The Mule, which is not actually a "hero" story but is a real-life story, is decent, as is Richard Jewell, but Clint is capable of so much more than decent. He is capable of greatness.

Richard Jewell is SHIT

Which one is a lie?

PowerRR - T.H.
Wonderland (2003) - Rashomon meets Boogie Nights meets poop. It's a mixed bag of everything, ranging from Val Kilmer's good performance (John Holmes) to Dylan McDermott looking like he scraped together a biker costume at the last minute for a Halloween party. It's a cheap looking movie that resembles an episode of 24 visually and many actors in the ensemble cast didn't even bother to have an early 80s hairstyle. There are also some strange anachronisms like a character having a late 80s brick cellphone in 1981. The soundtrack could have also been a lot better. The only saving grace, and it's really not a saving grace, is that the pace is pretty good due to the Roshomon story structure -- and the murder scene near the end is effectively creepy, even though the movie as a whole looks like a Fox show from the 00s. D+

I thought you hated comedy?

I watched the Austin Powers movies probably a total of 100 times when I was in high school. Not since then  ;) There was a time I could recite the second movie line by line.
