“Oops”, Ivana Milicevic, Enemy of the State
The Cabin in the Woods – ★★★★☆
– a meta meta “loving hate letter” to the genre (more rewarding the more you know)
Nothing But the Truth – ★★★☆☆
Warrior – ★★★☆☆
– bits of all “those” movies works well
Girl with a Pearl Earring – ★★★☆☆
– slow going, soft spot for Johansson helps
Drive – ★★★★☆
– 9 months after seeing it in N.Y and thinking “Wow, wtf?” it’s still a “Wow”
Man on Fire – ★★★☆☆
– Denzel gets brutal on Mexican cops and kidnappers. If you’re okay with that…
Enemy of the State – ★★★☆☆
– silly, fun
Regarding the ratings…

Comments Off on RIP Tony Scott
From flying jets and pulling Kelly McGillis to stopping a runaway train and saving the day, Tony Scott delivered when it came to action films. I’m sorry to hear he’s no longer with us.
– runaway train!
Man on Fire
– Denzel Washington kicks ass!
Enemy of the State
– Subs + nukes!
– Patricia Arquette! Mad gun fight!
The Last Boy Scout
– Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans kick ass!
– Kelly McGillis!
– Catherine Deneuve + Susan Sarandon! Bowie! Vampires!
