Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: Pete Davidson's life was a perfect fit for the Apatow Universe. Equally funny and sad.

Ad Astra (2019)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: Was the journey equal to the destination? Not sure I can say that. But what a journey it was. Made me think of 2001 A Space Odyssey. Brad was great.

Wind River (2017)

Uncut Gems (2019)
Format: Streaming
Viewing: 1st

Bombshell (2019)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: I'm sorry but stories like these are just better suited for documentaries. Wasn't entertaining enough. That said, the three leads were great.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 342 Average listal rating (260 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.9
Jojo Rabbit (2019)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: Big fan of Waititi, was expecting this to have more laughs. The grim side of the story didn't balance well. However, the child actors were fantastic.

People who added this item 616 Average listal rating (401 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.4
Mud (2013)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Great modern western. Very original story. Authentic feel.
djprojexion's rating:
*Could not find the Season 8 series in the database
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Decided to give this a second chance since there was so much hype at the time of its original airing. Up to Episode 5 it was phenomenal and The Bells episode ranks as one of the best in the entire series. But the final "send off" episode just ruins it. The way they wrapped everything up just didn't feel true to the spirit of the show. It's the bad taste that just won't go away.
People who added this item 1279 Average listal rating (966 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.5
Whiplash (2014)
Format: DVD
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: A modern indie masterpiece. Brilliant pacing and suspense.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 325 Average listal rating (221 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.3
Black Sheep (1996)
Format: DVD
Viewing: Umpteenth
Thoughts: It goes to show that you actually need a good story for a Comedy to be great. Laughs alone cannot carry a film. That's why Tommy Boy was far superior.
djprojexion's rating:
Format: DVD
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Probably the funniest movie I've seen in recent years. The girls are equally if not more funny than the guys.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 658 Average listal rating (463 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.3
Neighbors (2014)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Probably one of the best "getting older" comedies (along with This is 40) to come out of the 10's. Endless laughs and great onscreen chemistry.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 5005 Average listal rating (3404 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 7
American Pie (1999)
Format: DVD
Viewing: Umpteenth
Thoughts: The gross out humor was probably refreshing when it first came out, but doesn't hold up well today. Feels like I'm watching Porky's with little redeeming value.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 175 Average listal rating (120 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 5.8
Leviathan (1989)
Format: DVD
Viewing: 2nd (or 3rd)
Thoughts: Cheap ripoff of Alien/s. I wanted to like it, but it just felt kind of silly and cheesey.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 340 Average listal rating (230 ratings) 5.1 IMDB Rating 5.7
The Sitter (2011)
Format: DVD
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Solid comedy for fans of Hill. This was probably one of the last comedies he headlined before going into more serious roles. It's like a reboot of Adventures in Babysitting.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 67 Average listal rating (49 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.7
Format: Streaming
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: Enjoyable little indie flick. A little too meandering. Lacked direction and purpose. Left me wanting more.
djprojexion's rating:
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: I had been searching for this film for the longest time and it did have an interesting concept with some dope visuals. But overall it just felt a little flat and underwhelming.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 604 Average listal rating (380 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.8
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Gritty as they come. Everything you could possibly want from a period cops and crooks film. Gray + Phoenix was like a modern day Scorsese + DeNiro.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 796 Average listal rating (517 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd (or 3rd)
Thoughts: A forgotten Eastwood classic. Probably one of Costner's best performances. An absolutely captivating road movie.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 95 Average listal rating (58 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
Format: DVD
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Second time seeing this since its original airing on the History channel and man is this a helluva mini-series. At a time when you forgot how great Costner could be he returns in a big way as Devil Anse Hatfield. Bill Paxton also turns in an equally impressive performance as his nemesis Randall McCoy. The ensuing feud is served up in all its Shakespearean tragedy greatness.

People who added this item 1695 Average listal rating (1141 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
3:10 to Yuma (2007)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: I would probably rank this as one of the best Westerns of the modern era. It's sleek, rugged, and suspenseful. It's basically everything you would want out of a Western with great performances from Bale and Crowe.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 2321 Average listal rating (1572 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.2
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd (or 3rd)
Thoughts: Still holds up really well today as a gritty period LA-noir cop flick thanks to Ellroy's dark-side of LA writing. When Crowe and Pearce finally join forces the movie really kicks into gear and serves up a spectacular finale.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 598 Average listal rating (433 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 8.5
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: As is the case with all the Avengers movies, there's just too much going on, too many characters, and it all just feels really flat and tired.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 152 Average listal rating (105 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.1
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 1st
Thoughts: This movie had such potential, the original story and world building was spectacular. But it was a little too vanilla for me and could have benefited from a harder edge. If helmed by someone like say George Miller, this could have been a sleeper masterpiece of Steam Punk sci-fi.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 1102 Average listal rating (705 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.2
Format: DVD
Viewing: 2nd (or 3rd)
Thoughts: I'm sure a lot of people rank this movie higher because of the dog, but for me this just didn't hold up well from when I remember seeing it as a kid. There are far better Hanks comedies from this era (Big, Dragnet, The 'burbs, Money Pit, etc). It just wasn't funny enough and the whole thing was just kind of plodding and kept losing my attention.

People who added this item 961 Average listal rating (687 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8.1
Logan (2017)
Format: Blu-Ray
Viewing: 2nd
Thoughts: Has to be the best anti-super hero movie ever made (sorry Deadpool). The weathered, aged look of Wolverine and Professor X, the western themes, the father-daughter dilemma, all great stuff. Kept me glued all the way through.
djprojexion's rating:
People who added this item 276 Average listal rating (175 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.6
Explorers (1985)
Format: Streaming
Viewing: 2nd (or 3rd)
Thoughts: Great little 80s sci-fi flick from goofball director Joe Dante. Has all the 80s coming-of-age trappings: geeks and bullying, space exploration slash video gaming, playing outdoors and building things, and a group of friends taking on the world together. A classic from my childhood.
