    Invasion of the Body Snatchers

    ★★★½

    There's something about 70s movies and their look. I don't know if it's the lighting or the sets or the architecture or the fashion or what, but so many of them look absolutely outstanding. This is obviously no different.

    Solid 4K of a good movie. Worth a pickup

  • Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

    ★★½

    Not really a bad film, but such a big departure from the prior ones that it just feels so weird. Lacks any of the clever and subtle characterization and replaces it with what could almost be considered a strange parody of an adventure film.

    This Max is basically a different character and the motivations of all the characters don't really make much sense. The first 30 minutes is the best, and it just steadily goes down hill from there.

    Some impressive set-pieces, but the action pales when compared to the prior movie.

    Disappointing!

    Ready Player One

    I have read Ernest Cline's "pop culture Odyssey" Ready Player One three times. I loved it when I was 13, liked it when I was 14, and disliked it when I was 16.

    The book uses 80s pop culture references as a gimmick to rest on because nothing else is incredible. The prose is laughable, the writing is average at best and embarassing at worst, the characters are flat, and the plot structure has been done to death. Despite its…
