Rating History

Star Wars: The Last Jedi
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is easily the best 'Star Wars' movie since 'The Empire Strikes Back.' There is one moment -- and you'll know it when it happens -- that is one of the most stunning things you'll ever see in theaters. This is how we must say good-bye to Carrie Fisher on-screen, and Rian Johnson sends her off with grace and a bit of poetry, which is in short supply these days. This is also Mark Hamill's most satisfying turn as Luke Skywalker. 'The Last Jedi' is exhilarating, beautifully shot, and still somehow manages to surprise audiences. If you're an emotional type, bring tissues. The Force is strong in Rian Johnson... let's hope he comes back for more.

Thor: Ragnarok

Hella stupid. The geeks beside us thought they were in a knee-slapping comedy. Cate Blanchett slinks around and chews the scenery like some kind of exotic space beetle. #GodOfCorny.

Blade Runner 2049
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I've waited 35 years for a sequel to my favorite movie, and this sequel did not disappoint. This is masterful, thinking-man's sci-fi and a perfect extension of the original. It's very long and takes its time, but I didn't care... I could gaze in awe at this world forever. It was great to see some familiar faces, including Harrison Ford returning as Deckard -- one of his best roles in years. I'll be thinking about this for another 35 years. Just... thank you.

½

It's not half as cool as it thinks it is because it's trying way too hard, but it's still pretty entertaining. I wish someone with more of a range was cast as Baby.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The first movie was five stars to me, so this one was never going to live up to it. It's fun to be back in the Kingsman world, but it seems a lot sillier this time and with CGI overkill that makes everything look too much like a video game. Still, it's great to have Colin Firth back, Julianne Moore chews into her she-villain role, and Channing Tatum hams it up as a Statesman. Does anyone know if Jeff Bridges has permanent peanut butter in his mouth? He can only talk like his character from 'True Grit' now. This is big dumb fun, but the first one seemed much smarter and, at 2 hours and 21 minutes, this sequel stretches its ludicrous story way too thin.
