Lupin III: Dead or Alive (1996)

From IMDb: “When Lupin heads to the kingdom of Zufu to pilfer its treasure, he incurs the wrath of its psychotic ruler General Headhunter, who places a dead-or-alive bounty on his head that many intend to collect.” What I liked: Sharp pace enhances an already engaging story featuring one of my favorite fictional characters andContinue reading “Lupin III: Dead or Alive (1996)”

Perdy (vol. 1)

Perdy is a Western-comedy about the toughest gal you’ll ever find. She’s crude, she’s horny and she will break your nose if she feels like it. She is also fresh out of prison and maybe has something up her sleeve. What I liked: I’m not a big fan of westerns but doggone it, this isContinue reading “Perdy (vol. 1)”

Cop Car

This movie was directed by Jon Watts, who has directed the last two Spider-Man movies. This one tells the story of two boys that find a cop’s car hidden from the main road, and what happens when they innocently drive off with it. What I liked: The two child leads carry the whole movie withContinue reading “Cop Car”

Ducktales (tv) (2017)

First things first: I haven’t watched the original “Ducktales” cartoon in DECADES.

Baby Driver

The main story line is heavily cliched, but the dialog is not. The pacing is pretty slow, but then again, I have a TERRIBLE attention span. Felt a little long, with a long-winded ending. It’s great to see REAL cars (not computer graphic cars) doing REAL driving stunts. It’s too bad the quick editing diminishesContinue reading “Baby Driver”

The Fate of the Furious

– I’ve watched most of this series with my Dad, and I think he would’ve enjoyed this one (even if it is a bit long [seriously, can they STOP making action movies so dang long? This one is ALMOST THREE HOURS]). – An extremely entertaining movie in an always entertaining series. – There were rumorsContinue reading “The Fate of the Furious”

Hell or High Water

– Other critics have called it a neo or contemporary western but that classification does not do it justice. Hell or High Water dusts off a mirror to show us exactly what warped sense of justice we have in the good ole US of A. – A perfect example of the end justifying the means,Continue reading “Hell or High Water”
