Movie review: Suicide Squad (2016)

I’d wanted to see this in the theatre.  Unfortunately with two small kids, that just wasn’t possible, and boy am I glad it wasn’t.  I’d be so pissed if I’d paid $12 for a ticket to see this unholy mess.  In fact I’m mad that I paid $3.99 for the DVD at Walmart.  This movie isn’t just so-so.  It is actively bad. It is incoherent.  This was a big budget movie and I just don’t understand how you can spend this kind of money making a movie and coming out with something that doesn’t even make sense.  Avoid at all costs.

Movie review: Above and Beyond (2014)

Above and Beyond is a documentary of the origins of the Israeli Air Force and its operation in the 1948-49 war.  While some footage uses CASA 2111 to recreate the Avia CS-199s, it still has plenty of archival footage and great interviews and stories.  It definitely has an pro-Israeli gloss to the story, but it still presents the history pretty down the middle.  I highly recommend it.

Robert Downey, Jr.

Filed under: General — dknights @ 3:50 pm

I admit, I like watching Robert Downey Jr. act.  He is good at it.  He managed to make me enjoy Sherlock Holmes played as a buddy cop movie and I never thought I’d like that.

This is a neat story.  Makes me like him even more.

Movie review: Gone Girl (2014)

I hate to admit that Ben Affleck is doing some pretty good movies.  I had not much liked him as an actor or director.  However, his 2010 movie, The Town, was pretty good.  I was surprised.  This movie is also well worth watching, though it is a little long in spots.  It has numerous twists and turns and the characters that are being portrayed are all pretty skin-crawlingly creepy.  Definitely worth watching.
