A pretty much enjoyably silly movie, and one that features Brian Cox (the actor who played the first Hannibal Lector), as a police captain, of a group that engages in wacky hijinks, while trying to find out more about a drug operation, that's distributing lately in town.

It's one of my favorite guilty pleasure films, of all time.

It's not the best James Bond film, but it is pretty good and will always have a place in my heart, for four reasons.

1) It's the movie, that first introduced me, to the awesomeness that is Christopher Walken.

2) It's the first James Bond film, that I have ever saw.

3) Not only is Duran Duran, one of my favorite bands of all time, but A View To A Kill, is also one of my favorite songs of all time.

4) It ended the Roger Moore era, on a pretty high note.

As a fan of the musical, I would have to say it is a okay film, that could have been a lot better.

Gerald Butler, is not bad in the role as The Phantom, I do have to admit that it would have been interesting, to see what Antonio Banderas, would have been like in the film.

An impossibally, adorably cute film (except for Sharptooth, he is far from cute).

It's a criminally overlooked, and under appreciate looked movie.
If anything, Don Bluth was great at balancing both cute and scary.

Csse in point, The Secret of Nimh.

A film, that is an odd mix between The Illusionist, The Prestige, Hudson Hawk, and Ocean's Eleven.

At times, it can be convoluted and complicated, but oddly enough, it's what also make the film fun.

Done right, I see no reason, why this can't be a series of some sorts.

One of my favorite comedies, and Ben Stiller films. I especially like the volleyball scene with him accidentally hitting Owen Wilson's charecter on the nose.

A lot of the humor, comes from Greg desperately trying to impress Jack, and his family, only to have everything back fire on him.

The sequels are okay, but I like the first movie a lot more.

You're Next (2013)


A horror film, that's like a odd, messed up combination between Home Alone, The Last House On The Left, and Saw.

It's also really hard to take seriously, given the killers motives (for the lack of a better word), the sure ammount of prep word, and how at times, they're not exactly the most sharp pencils in the box.

It's an okay film, but not the "most aweome horror film" of the year, that some make it up to be.
