The Goonies, Good Enough For Me

My fellow Gen Xers rewatch The Goonies. It will carry you back to some good times when life was a little simpler and the adventure was awesome. It also has a newly minted Academy Award winner in the cast. While you are at it show your kids.

The 95th Academy Awards #Oscars

Hollywood gathers to celebrate the year’s best in motion pictures. The Oscars is a cultural event much like the Super Bowl except everyone is dressed to thrill. Let’s see who makes history and takes home the golden guy.

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness – Non-Spoilery Review

Marvel Studios sure knows how to produce a movie. Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor. This latest “Doctor Strange” presentation is dark, visually overwhelming (not in a negative way), and takes the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) into new places across the multiverse. The cast including Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, and Rachel McAdams put on great performances and have great chemistry together.

I would go as far as to say this had some serious elements of horror in it. Emotionally it will impact you. There are a few unexpected surprises in there too just like every other Marvel movie has. To the “Star Trek” fans out there you won’t be disappointed in seeing a couple of familiar faces (that is as much as I will say about that).

I recommend you see it on the big screen and if you can see it on IMAX that would be good too. The movie theatre is a great way to stay cool in these warmer temperatures. It’s a great flick.

Avengers: Endgame A Spoiler-Free Review


Avengers: Endgame is a magnum opus and by my estimation the greatest super hero movie ever made and also a really great film. The culmination of 21 movies that came before it Endgame is everything it needed to be and more. You don’t feel like you have been in a movie for over three hours because it goes by so fast. The dialogue and action keep you entertained and engaged from start to finish.

This is one of those movies with a galaxy of stars from all the previous films. I do believe its helpful to have seen all the previous titles so you can get full idea of what’s happening. One thing I do think is that you need to see it on a big screen. Don’t wait for this to come to home video.

It seems like its going to be an interesting Oscars. “La La Land” picked up a lot of nominations but can they convert. There are some films that could surprise, and that is why you watch the Academy Awards right?

Friday Night Movie – Notting Hill – A Super Rom Com

This gem from 1999 features a lot of stars. Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Hugh Bonneville, Emma Chambers, Richard McCabe, Rhys Ifans, Clarke Peters and Alec Baldwin among a few others.

Richard Curtis who also did Four Weddings and a Funeral along with Love Actually gives a screenplay that tells a great story about an unlikely romance between a high powered actress and a travel book shop owner. It’s a great romantic comedy.

Quote The Movie

We all have a movie we have seen so many times that you can quote it almost line by line. For us there are several of them. The dialogue is imprinted on your brain and you feel like you could do a reenactment like you see in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”. The whole point of reciting the lines is to have a good time and perhaps annoy some folks in the process.
