INSTANT REVIEW: The Big Short (2015) (5/5)

Everyone in Hollywood and Anthony Bourdain explain the 2008 banking crisis with a healthy spoonful of gallows humor. Financial thriller/comedy is a genre that needs expansion.

INSTANT REVIEW: Deadpool (2016) (3/5)

Not a fan of superhero stuff, but he's not much of a hero. Probably even funnier if you understand the comic book references. I had a good time.

INSTANT REVIEW: Hail, Caesar! (2016) (4/5)

If you've seen any movie from the 1950s, you'll understand. It's light on plot, but heavy on choreography. Like every movie from the 1950s, come to think of it.

INSTANT REVIEW: Batman vs. Superman (2016) (2/5)

I was contractually obligated to see this movie. Every character in this movie was contractually obligated to be there too. Ben Affleck's chin stars and written by some ten year-old, I'm guessing.

INSTANT REVIEW: Everest (2015) (2/5)

The story is basically everyone dies, one guy lives. It could have been fleshed out with some mountain climbing action, but it isn't.

INSTANT REVIEW: Warcraft (2016) (4/5)

A video game movie with pacing issues, giving much focus to characters of little to no importance. Looks pretty. Sounds pretty. Does not require knowledge of the video game before watching.

INSTANT REVIEW: Videodrome (1982) (4/5)

Deeply unsettling. The owner of a sleazy television station intercepts an extremely violent television broadcast from a satellite and finds himself involved in something much stranger than he bargained for. Existenz was a poor copy of this. Graphic sex, violence, sexual violence. Extremely unreliable narrator.

INSTANT REVIEW: Star Trek Beyond (2016) (3/5)

Fast & Furious In Space was too outlandish even for those guys, so instead they made this. It works. Maybe the odd-numbered ones will be the good ones this time around.

Tom just tweeted about vulnerable children in Africa. Admirable. I think he's trying to reclaim his prior image as a humanitarian/thespian. Let's light a candle that he can phase shift away from the relationship spectacle tabloid stories.

INSTANT REVIEW: The X-Files (Fight the Future) (1998) (5/5)

Plays out like an extended episode of The X-Files. If you like the X-Files, you'll love the movie too. If you've never seen it before, probably not the best introduction. Scully is cute as hell too. Lots of tundras. The return of the Black Oil.
