A Reason to Live, A Reason to Die (Ragione per vivere e una per morire, Una)
17 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

It's the basic Dirty Dozen story. A ragtag bunch go on a mission. And overall, meh. The ending is epic, but the journey there is stale. The only decent parts besides that, are the assembling of the group, all members standing in a hangman's noose as they are offered the job. The other is a scene where the men (in Confederate uniforms) tell a southern town that the South has won, causing dancing in the streets.

Original rating: 30%

So when I first saw this movie, it was around two in the afternoon in the middle of the summer. Which means I had just woken up when I had decided to watch it on TV. Not commercial free TV. Local TV. Which probably didn't help my original opinion.

Yes, as the younger me stated, it IS The Dirty Dozen formula, in all of it's glory. The acting is very well done, James Coburn and Bud Spencer proving to be amazing actors.

I stated the journey in between recruiting the men, and the final battle was stale. Oh how wrong was I! It was great! Full of deception, clever lines, and overall entertaining scenes.

It was commercial free too, bought it on a DVD of "12 Western Classics," at the store. The picture quality was also very good, far superior to the TV version.

New (and improved) rating: 90%

The Blob
The Blob (1958)

It's goofy, not taking itself too seriously. The pacing is also very good. It slides by (like the Blob). The catchy them starts the flick off perfectly.

Punch-Drunk Love

An entertaining romantic comedy that proves Adam Sandler can be quite the dramatic actor when he wants. Philip Seymour Hoffman also shines as a sleazy mattress salesmen. The highlight of the movie is the two yelling, "SHUT UP. JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP," at one another.

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse
19 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Entertaining story, semi-decent animation, and good voice work. All in all not bad, but nothing too special.

Escape from New York
19 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Lee Van Cleef tells Kurt Russel to raise hell in the now-island prison that was once New York City to save Donald Pleasence. AND IT WAS DIRECTED BY JOHN CARPENTER. You're quite the fool if you dislike this movie.
