A successful movie director decides to start making “serious” movies but decides he needs some real world experience first. Very funny and a quick watch. My wife usually hates old black and white movies but this one kept her engaged. Recommended.

Raise your hand if you remember the mid 90s mediocre action movie Eraser, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Vanessa Williams? OK, now keep them raised if you ever thought to yourself, "man, I'd love to see a remake of that!" Anyone? Yeah, didn't think so. I only dimly remember the original, but Eraser: Reborn is a low budget, straight to streaming flick that's worse in every way. Since they were obviously on a minimal budget, they relocated it to Cape Town, South Africa. Of course, that made explaining why the US Marshals would be running a Witness Protection program there kinda hard to do, so they didn't bother. Shooting there did give them an excuse to use a bad CGI hippo and a worse CGI rhino to kill bad guys. There was also a live ostrich that I'm about 90% sure just wandered onto the set during shooting and they just decided to work it into the story, rather than reshoot.

In case I haven't been clear, it's not a good movie. You should not watch it.

Caught a few spookie movies to celebrate my return to a cable tv free life.


Very good spooky Indian movie. I unfortunately fell asleep part way through so missed 10-15 minutes but great music and some creepy scenes.


Interesting find off of Amazon Prime. It's never quite boring but the beginning of the film is dominated by sibling tension (quite juvenile given the actors are probably in their 30s). Things pop off eventually and is pretty satisfying creepy factor. The ending is good too but I actually wish there was a few more minutes to see how things play out (rare a movie may be too short). It's imdb score is much too low.

My daughter is working on a school project about Jane Austen, so she wanted to watch Clueless (based, of course, on her novel Emma). I hadn't seen it in years, so it was a fun nostalgia trip for me. Of note was when one of the kids said, "the way I feel about the Rolling Stones is the way my kids are going to feel about Nine Inch Nails, so I should stop giving my mom such a hard time."

That hits a lot closer to the bone now than it did in 1995.

Clueless is one of my favorite comedies, packed to the gills with jokes.

Genuinely terrible, avoid at all costs.

Caught this on Netflix over the wknd.

AP stars as a wanna be artist, current food delivery worker with a shitload of student debt. She is just living her life in Los Angeles while sharing an apartment with several people.

When a co-worker slides her a phone number to potentially be a "dummy shopper" she eventually bites.

"Dummy shopper"? Yep...fake credit card and drivers license...purchase some ****...contact resells.

After a few successful, but tense runs, she gets pretty good.

But there are pitfalls. Loads of cash laying around. No time for real 9-5 jobs/interviews. And falling for the contact dude who she is working with.

This was pretty good. The movie weaves a tale of a wannabe criminal trying to survive, doing real criminal stuff! Def worth a watch!

3.75/5.

Another one I caught over the wknd.

The lead actress is a newly married lass living the high life at her husband's family compound. He heads to war and comes back partially paralyzed, and unable to walk/use his junk!

They move back to the country crib, where they basically own the town, and try to make a life for themselves.

The monkey wrench? The newly hired gamekeeper living in a cottage on the land is single and really to mingle!

Lead actress starts taking long walks and.....well.....you know!

There is a good amount of nudity in this, from both lead actors. I'm usually not a period piece movie dude, but this was also rather well done.

This is a remake and based on D.H. Lawrence's book(which I didn't see or read.)

Also worth a watch...even though it runs just over 2 hours.

3.5/5.

I'm cheap, so I've been watching a lot of action movies that are free on Amazon Prime. I learned that there is a reason that those movies are free. Most of them are bad. Really bad. Except the ones starring Liam Neeson post-Taken. Those are all awesome.
