    Ha, all the bad reviews are making me curious to see what all the fuss is about.

    I loved Witness. Caught it by chance on Netflix - one of the highlights of the old rating system.

    I almost decided to see MOTHER! instead Logan Lucky today, but I was I a shit mood and needed something not-so-serious. I hope it shows up on HBO so I can get drunk and hate watch.

    Not as good as Friedkin's first installment (and it doesn't have anything as cool as the elevated train / car chase), but it's still a rather watchable 70s crime thriller, with great work from Hackman and Frankenheimer.

    Executive Decision.

    Another in the line of nerd-into-hero action flicks.

    Our President's ex has a role as a flight attendant.

    Probably the world's greatest detective is the bad guy.

    Solid cast of character actors. BD Wong's flattop steals the show.

    Clothing sighting: Oliver Platt's Burberry coat and club tie.

    Kind of a Ned Stark situation with one of the headliners.

    Eerily prescient movie about the use of a hijacked aircraft as a tactical weapon.

    Ultimately: not as good Air Force One.

    Stephen King's the Dead Zone. Love the young Christopher Walken and Martin Sheen. I was glad I finally saw this.

    E.T. had me either crying or smiling the whole time. What a great movie.

    Wife's out of town, meaning I can watch long and depressing movies.

    Hard to find the words to describe this one. Absolutely brutal.

    The Deer hunter is brutal, beautiful, emotional and sentimental - but way too long. Michael Cimino's movies need a hard hand in the editing room.
