  • Che: Part Two

    Che: Part Two

    ★★★★

    Criterion Collection Spine #496
    (Foreign language film - Spanish)

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    Live by the revolution .... die by the revolution!

    "To survive here, to win ... you have to live as if you've already died."

    In part 2 of Steven Soderbergh's Che, we flash forward to the late 60s as Ernesto Che Guevara sets his eyes on leading a band of revolutionaries in Bolivia. But we soon come to see this effort was doomed from the…

  • Che: Part One

    Che: Part One

    ★★★½

    Criterion Collection Spine #496
    (Foreign language film - Spanish)

    (The Average Joe’s Movie Club Cast)

    The rise of the iconic Latin American revolutionary known as Che Guevara begins, in this first part of Director Steven Soderbergh's epic historical biopic of Che's conquest of Cuba and his eventual tragic downfall.

    "Nobody is going home on leave. We have only won the war. The revolution has just begun."

    I had been curious to check this out for a while now since I…

  • The Croods

    The Croods

    ★★★★

    Learning to break out of your comfort zone and literally broaden your horizon ... caveman style.

    "Anything new is bad. Curiosity is bad. Going out at night is bad. Basically, anything fun is bad. Welcome to my world!"

    My oldest son is big-time into The Croods all of a sudden since the sequel came out, and if it was not for COVID-19 I would have taken him to see it opening day, but for now we are stuck revisiting the…

  • Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

    Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

    ★★★½

    (Christmas Movie Fest 2020)

    A solid grouping of Disney short films with plenty of heartfelt holiday cheer.

    "That'll put the Spirit of Christmas in ya!"

    We put this on a couple of times each Christmas to have something festive on TV, but I never thought to log it. It features three shorts starring your favorite classic Disney characters including Donald, Goofy, and of course Mickey and Minnie.

    I especially like chapter one 'Donald Duck: Stuck On Christmas', which is a…

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    An all new Spiderman comes into his own as Marvel and Sony unleash the Spider-Verse!

    "Wow, that is one hardcore origin story kid."

    The dazzling pages of a comic book come to life in this highly unique and imaginative animated film. For so long I have wanted to see a Spiderman movie that was not handcuffed to the constraints of a simple hero story and one or two villains. And Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse delivers that and much more as…

  • Chinatown

    Chinatown

    ★★★★★

    Recommended by: Ayden The NinjaPirateBear

    By far the best experience I have ever had watching a crime noir film.

    "How much are you worth? ... I have no idea. How much do you want? ... I just wanna know what you're worth. More than 10 million? ... Oh my, yes! ... Why are you doing it? How much better can you eat? What could you buy that you can't already afford? ... The future, Mr. Gittes! The future.

    I remember…
