Rating History

Fahrenheit 451
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The time might be right for a film about government's authoritarian abuse, even if it is based on a 50 year old novel. "Fahrenheit 451" makes its point, but it lacks the bite and fleshed out characters it needs to make us care about the outcome. I like both Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon, and they almost pull it off...but not quite.

The 15:17 to Paris
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There's no doubt that the three young men who stopped a mass terrorist plot on a train bound for Paris, are heroes. In the less important role as actors they aren't quite so believable. The film undermines the greatness of their acts by dragging us through an overblown, simple-minded look at the men's world that led to the attack. The film is a mess, though I will say that I did get some satisfaction in the final act when the terrorist has the tables turned.

Life of the Party
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Melissa McCarthy is always fun to watch as she is a gifted comedienne. Too bad "Life of the Party" asks the audience to suspend any type of belief. You can play along only so far until it cannot recover.

Taco Shop
Taco Shop (2018)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

There are some mildly amusing moments to be found in the comedy "Taco Shop". The cast is fun and seem to be having a good time. Unfortunately, the movie never seems to become more than a skit. It's amusing, but not consistently funny.

Samson
Samson (2018)
7 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A bland and uninspired version of the Hebrew strongman., known as Samson. The acting is only fair, though Taylor James performance is far from memorable. The role needed a much more charismatic muscleman in the lead. The film is pretty silly in its depiction.
