Likely the worst Disney Animation movie made. The lowest point in their history. Lucky for us, they got their shit together...

A Woody Allen dud. Is presented like a very long one act play. Filled with annoying characters.
Still, I can't help deny his often likable penchant for dialogue.

A noir detective story that mixes 1980s production with 1950s setting quite nicely. Rourke is entertaining and De Niro makes his few scenes memorable.

Classic 80s comedy with three actors who helped define the era. It doesn't hold up one bit, but as long as you look at it through an 80s lens it can be entertaining.

"I'll be back" - The first time of many Arnold self-imitation quotes.
I finally got to watching this 80s action classic. And wow, is it an 80s movie! It's so bad and yet so good. Definitely a guilty pleasure. Schwarzenegger was so likable back then.

Stewart is one of my all-time favorites, as an actor and human. This documentary, hosted and narrated by Johnny Carson, does a very fine job of telling his story.

A movie that will always put me in the Christmas spirit. It brings not only The Muppets together, but their friends from Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock!
