    ★★★★★

    A giant film in cinematic history. This film might not have been the first historical drama, but its critical success cemented the genre as a big-budget money maker on the big screen, which documentaries had been seemingly trying to do since the inception of the film industry. There's really no telling how many more people have seen Niel Armstrong land on the moon in the introduction of this film than have actually pulled the events up on you-tube or elsewhere.…

    ★★★★

    Batman takes on four of his arch-enemies at once! One of the silliest, campiest live-action films one can find is also the first live-action non-independently-produced superhero film - 1966's Batman. I don't think I've seen this one for 30 years and honestly I think I had forgotten that I had seen it in my youth, confusing this film with the television series that followed with the same actors and costumes. In watching it, however, I certainly remember the best memories…

    There are a couple entertaining bits in this somewhat dark and experimental flick, but most of it is pretty bland character interactions. The star power is about the only thing that drew me in, but the film is a bit purposefully fuzzy which seems to aim to obscure famous faces from a huge list of fairly successful Hollywood cast. Most of the film I was left waiting for something to happen, and when it did I was asking 'is that…

    The Outsiders

    ★★★

    Just about everyone involved in this 80's coming of age crime flick went on to have amazing careers. This crime drama highlights the class divide in America in the mid 20th century with a group of 'Soc's', or socielites, constantly bullying the Greasers to the point that one of them is killed. A heroic act ends in partial tragedy, and the climax is a street-fight melee. Apparently this is a well-known novel and an extremely popular story in American culture,…

    Paul Blart: Mall Cop

    Most of the humor in this one involves seeing Kevin James bounce off of different things. This film's last act is fairly unbelievable too as he is depicted as knocked gun-toting bad-guys out by accident left and right. I found a touch of comedic entertainment value in it, but half of the time I was just cringing at all of the supporting characters giving Blart hell. I honestly thought this one would be better even though i didn't have high…

    ★½

    The true(ish) story of the Four Seasons band who were successful through the 60's and 70's. This musical biopic really dives into Tommy DeVito's mis-dealings with organized crime while featuring plenty of the groups original songs. The film's production quality if superb and the music and performances are fine, I just really didn't find the 4th-wall-breaking narrations by the four main performers or the band's story in general particularly compelling, which led to a lower than average rating from me…
