This latest entry in the tired franchise was mainly boring and felt like it was going through the numbers, which is a harder taste to care for as I did like Prometheus a lot. The alien looked pretty phony throughout but things didn't get cooking until the last portion, making the movie kind of memorable if not utterly predictable.
Logan is worth checking out to see more brutal Wolverine fight scenes. There are a few good moments but there are parts of it that feel way too familiar and just do not bring anything new to the table.
I found this to be a kind of charming straight to video comedy from the early 90's. The production history didn't have this being made as a fourth Meatballs. Instead it was a sex comedy based at a water sports summer camp. Either way the Meatballs series sucks except for the first one and this is better than either 2 or 3. Feldman does his cocky cool shtick great here among some babes and chuckles at stupid cliched jokes. I would have loved this as an 11 year old.
About the same as the first one making it an alright sequel. Just like the original it had some good monster movie moments but didn't really rise above having a decent monster. A bus ridden by annoying jocks and a few other bland characters encounter the winged beast. I would think that having people trapped in a singular location like the bus would have some thrills but it didn't. Ray Wise is a standout as a vengeful father out to destroy the creature.
It's too bad that this is tainted by disgusting behind the scenes crimes because Clownhouse was a decent suspense flick. As a kid who wasn't really afraid of clowns but saw their fear potential, I liked this and felt that it holds up well for a movie about a kid afraid of clowns and his brothers being terrorized in their home. It would be scary to walk to a general store while being followed by clowns. I don't know if I will ever see this again but I would add it to the list of effective clown fear movie sub genre.
The first moments on the road with the tension has some great thrills but it went downhill and just didn't remain interesting to me. Once they went down the pipe it never recovered for me.
Executive Decision might as well be put in a time capsule for future folks to see as an example of a by the numbers 1990's action movie. There is nothing inherently wrong with this movie as it sets out to entertain and does, it just does really nothing more than exist as a means to put together an action movie. There are so many moments where the audience is ahead of the movie and I am sure they were in 96 too. Kurt Russell holds it down as always and leads a crew of action lugheads and doofuses in trying to save the day. And there is Steven Segal in a small role, which is probably one of the coolest things that he did next to Machete. This works as a mindless action movie bursting with generic formula but it isn't bad.
