The Raven 1963 8 out of 10 This is just pure gold! Any movie with Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, and Boris Karloff has to be great! Throw in a little (or young) Jack Nicholson and it gets even better! I love everything about this movie, from the slap stick silly humour to some really top class acting this movie is one I can watch many times and it gets better! Gotta love these old classic horror movies... They just don't make um like they used to!
The Harry Hill Movie Great Laugh! Love it! 7.5 out of 10 First thing DO NOT believe the IMDB score on this on! 3.4 is just SOOOO wrong! This movie was full of laughs and intelligent humor, silly b-movie humor too. Seriously... Hubby fell asleep when we were watching this last night but I had no problem sitting and watching it again tonight! (Hubby was tired last night but made it through tonight) Sounds bad him falling asleep but don't let that put you off. If you like good fun smart humor give this one a go! You won't be disappointed!
Romance & Cigarettes 2005 Better with ever viewing! 7.5 out of 10 Hubby and I watched this last night. We've seen it a couple of times before and I always liked it but last night I realized why we watched this one more than once! Christopher Walken alone is reason enough! The scream before he sings Delilah just makes me laugh so much! Was he acting? I get the feeling not much! More going with the flow! I just love him! Kate Winslet was never better and I don't think could top this performance. Steve Buscemi is too funny... I could go on and on but I won't. I don't think there are too many modern musicals that are as good as this! The Coen Brothers and John Turturro... Could you really go wrong there? I think not! I bet next time I watch this I will love it even more!
The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014 Better than I expected! 9 out of 10 I have been waiting to see this movie and was expecting great things from it... I was not disappointed in fact I was surprised with the superb visuals through out the movie. The acting was over the top but in the best of ways! Edward Norton was never as funny and the cast as a whole had chemistry not found in many movies! The dialogue was witty, fast and unique! Ralph Fiennes is an amazing actor with a quality beyond confident I can't explain in a way that would sound right. He is just brilliant! In fact this is one of the best over all movies I have seen in some time. Did I mention the visuals! Superb! Will watch again and again. I could go on and on but I'll end with... Just watch this one you won't be disappointed!
The Way Way Back 2013 Don't waste your time 3 out of 10 I read really good reviews about this movie and was ready to sit down and watch a movie I would enjoy. That did not happen! The only good thing about this movie was Allison Janney and she was in it about 4 minutes. Such a disappointing movie seriously don't even watch this if there is nothing else on! Have a nap instead.
Free to Play2014 Enjoyable documentary 7.5 out of 10 I'm not into gaming or computer games but this was a really enjoyable movie. I love documentaries . I feel like I got to know more about the gaming world and understand it more. I also felt a connection to the players and could feel their passion. I would suggest this movie to anyone! Also I think each one of us should be able to go for our dreams and be supported when and if we get the chance to! Well done to all in this film and to the future of gaming!
Over The Hedge 2006 Now in my top 10 movies of all time! 9 out of 10! I just love this movie! Everything about it! This is one that I will watch over and over again! The animation was brilliant, characters amazing and it was too funny! I can't wait to watch this again! Not just for kids (I am a big kid though) I don't know how I missed this one but thanks to Hubby this movie has a new place in my favs!
The Spirit of '45 2013 I love the old days 7.5 out of 10 This was a really excellent documentary. I am fascinated with old film footage and pictures. My dad was two years old in 1945 so I love to get the perspective of things in relation to my dad's age and my grandparents. Who were 26 and 25. This film is real and during it I kept thinking it's all still the same. When will people get it that we need to make the world a better place and it's going to take all of us to do it. And we all can do it! Each one of us can make a difference! I know it's slow moving to change the way the world is and to change the political policies that keep us in our "places". It's not about money and politics... It's about our rights! We have the right to have a good life. ALL of us!
Man About Dog 2004 One of my favs! 8.5 out of 10 I love this movie and could watch it over and over. Wait... I have! Still love it every time too! I just found a link to it so I thought I would add it to the reviews even though I haven't seen it lately. I'm really just trying to distract myself tonight... We have a very sick cat tonight :~(
I love old movies. This is good for a real laugh! Sometimes we all need that. This movie will make you laugh. I love the old style humor and slap stick comedy and you know what's going to happen but laugh anyway. Laurel and Hardy are classic icons for a reason. I will be watching a few more of their movies soon as I enjoyed being swept away to a happy silly place!
